Positive Vibes

Positive Vibes for your life (1).jpg

 

Welcome to my blog! Today I have put together 5 things that I hope help you have a more positive life. All thoughts are my own, not sponsored. Sending positive vibes to everyone reading this!

 

  1. Appearance.

 

I remember walking past this woman a few times as I headed to the shops. Her outfits and hair were always what caught my attention. She was dressed to impressed. When I discovered, later on, she was really struggling financially I couldn’t believe it!

 

The fact that this person was able to still take care of how she looked despite struggling with money impressed me. Looking your best isn’t a superficial aspect, it brings positive vibes. As the old saying goes: ”When you look good, you feel good”

2. Exercise.

 

It isn’t always about working up a sweat, any exercise is better than nothing. Walking with your dog, a friend, family member or you’re significant other. Organizing hiking trips when everyone is free.

 

Creating workouts from home. If you have stairs in your home, use it as part of your exercise. Running up and down the stairs. You don’t need to go to the gym in order to keep active. Put on an inspiring podcast or listen to music when working out. Use these resources to make working out from home not feel like a chore, but fun to do.

 

I have a 2.5 KG hand weight that I rotate to use for both my arms. Now, this hand weight might appear puny compared to the other weights that are out there, but for me personally, my goal isn’t to be ripped but to do some exercise a day. I include doing lunges and sometimes skipping. Regardless of your purpose for wanting to work out, the main thing is to try every day to do something to get your body moving.

3. Animals.

 

Over the course of life, even children who see the world with potential can become jaded adults sometimes. It happens to the best of us. Watching how animals interact with each other might leave the most cynical person with a sense of hope for the humanity in the world. When my beloved dog Jocky died I couldn’t imagine being around other dogs ever again.

 

I wanted to disconnect from that part of myself, but when my sister moved in close proximity to where I lived, I was faced to see her dogs whenever I went to visit her and my nephew. I eventually embraced her 8 year old cheeky Jack Russel dog called Lucy and her 2 year old Siberian husky wolf of a dog named Anakin.

Animals have a way about themselves that lets us open the doors of vulnerability, joy, and a positive frequency. There’s more to life than just us, animals are proof of that. Plan a day at the zoo, volunteer at animal shelters, spend time with horses or hug your dog or cat. Being around an animal or your pet brings positive energy into your life.

4. Spirituality/meditation.

 

I was gobsmacked the first time watching the movie What’s Love Got To Do With It. If you aren’t familiar with the movie, it’s a biographical film loosely based on the life of the legendary singer Tina Turner.

Becoming famous and successful as we know it doesn’t happen overnight for the most part. It takes years and years of hard work, determination, perspiration, dedication and much more. I never knew Tina Turner went through what she had to get to where she is today. Her late ex-husband Ike Turner was a monster to her. He would physically abuse Tina to the point where she couldn’t take it anymore and at one point in her life she wanted to take her own life to end the suffering.

 

The reason I’m sharing this is that what gave Tina Turner the strength to finally stand up for herself and leave Ike Turner was from meditation. The power of serenading yourself to a higher source, whether you call that God or any other name helped change Tina Turner’s life around for the better and it can do the same for you too.

 

We as people assume we can handle everything by ourselves and we can, but why should we? Not everything in life is plain sailing, however going through struggles doesn’t mean you have to do it all alone. Putting your problems, struggles fears into God’s hands allows you to have faith in something beyond yourself. It creates a shift in your mindset which brings a positive perspective on your life.

 

If you aren’t ready to take the leap in going to church or any place of worship, then focus on your prayer/meditation life right in the comfort of your sanctuary, your home. Share not only your bad times but what you want to achieve, your hopes and ambitions in your life. There is no right or wrong way to prayer, it’s about having an ongoing conversation with a higher power than yourself.

 

5. Stress Soother.

 

Stress is the number one killer. Chronic stress can lead to serious health problems around the world for people. Stress is inevitable, it comes with being alive. Help minimize the stress in your life. I came across this product called Stress Soother at Clicks.

It claims to soothe muscular discomfort assists with circulation, soothes aches and pains. Shaped like a pillow you would take to the airport when traveling to prevent a stiff neck. The Stress Soother is a microwaveable bean bag that contains essential oils in the wheat-filled inner bag. (You can use it warm or cold)

For me, this reminds me of bean bag you put in the microwave to warm yourself on those cold winter nights expect this contains essential oils which have benefits for your beauty care, cleaning products, and natural medicine treatments. (Always consult with your medical doctor before using any product that contains essential oils)

 

I can’t say 100% this product helped me with any aches or pains because the purpose for myself to use it was for relaxation reasons. It might have been another gimmick product marketed well with the name ”Stress Soother” in making customers believe it helps with stress and aches. I enjoyed the warm feeling it had on my body and the fresh smell of essential oils it had.

  2. I like your post as I’m working now on bringing more positive vibes into my life. Referring to point 3 – I can add that having aquarium with fish is very relaxing. Watching them for a few minutes is much better alternative to TV 🙂 It is something on my list to get in the future. I used to have aquarium as a kid and can highly recommend it.

  3. I love these tips, I also use essential oils to destress myself along with hot baths. I am a big fan of aromatherapy. It just soothes my soul. I also have a dog who helps me so much. He’s always there ready to jump on my lap and give me sloppy kisses.

  4. Great positive vibes. I agree about taking the time with your appearance. When I’m feeling down I almost stop trying, which just makes me feel worse. Doing your hair and make-up really does make a difference!
