Hi Everyone –
Sorry for the late post…stomach flu is not the easiest of things to wake up in the morning with.
I found this amazing advice-giver sort of guy on YouTube and I have been wanting to share it with people, so what better way than to post it in this blog?
It’s easy to feel down or look at the negative aspects of a situation…We all do it, but that doesn’t make it a good way of thinking. In times of stress, like those two weeks before winter break, I am sure a substantial amount of students are complaining or dreading upcoming final assignments and exams. Whether you’re feeling extra negative on this rainy day, or just are having trouble finding happiness the past couple of weeks, check these videos out. I play them in the background sometimes during my lunch break. The messages are really valuable, and in only a few days I have a better perspective on how to live life to the fullest. It’s all up to you.
Some awesome things I remember from the videos:
- To help you think more positively think of 3 things you are thankful for and 3 things you are looking forward to
- You are independent of the good or bad opinions of others
- Know that your thoughts guide your emotions, so thinking negatively will only make you feel worse. Try to change the negative thought, and perhaps you will feel less upset about a situation
I hope you enjoy this as much as I am. The videos cover several topics so if you’re a happy, positive person already, there still may be something in it for you!
Good luck on finals!
