As we get older our bodies change, are faces gain a few lines and wrinkles, our boobs sag a little and our bottoms are less pert. Or at least thats what we see when we look in the mirror. It is natural to circle the parts of yourself you don’t like but then pay little attention to the parts of your body which are great! Make a serious effort to look in the mirror and pick out your good features, after all people are most attracted to those who are happy with themselves.
Instead of pacing the room before starting a new job use your energy to visualise the experience going really well.
By imaging the scenario running smoothly, it won’t feel as scary when it actually happens and you are likely to feel more positive. Another tip is to quite literally identify the worst that could happen. If you are beginning a new job then it could be no one acknowledging you, in which case when you do actually start, challenge this perception by making sure your worst fear doesn’t come true. Go up to your new colleges and introduce yourself to them!
Previous Bad Experiences
We are all guilty of dwelling on a bad experience for longer than we ought too. Not only that but we tend to drudge up the memory of it when we have something similar to do and become nervous we are going to have a repeat performance. Instead of thinking your life is doomed to go around in circles and will never get better, think about what you could do to improve it. Reminisce about happier times by looking through old photos or spending time with old friends. Sharing whats on your mind with others will really help you to shift some of that emotional load.
Divorce and Separation
This will bring about a huge change in your life and will rock your foundations to the very core. The most important thing to remember is that it is o.k to feel whatever it is your feeling. Surround yourself with people who love you and who make you feel great and then once you feel like you’ve built up a little strength that’s the time to start getting back on your feet and re-identifying with the person you were before you were a couple. Don’t run before you can walk, take small gradual steps until your confidence has grown. A good idea is to write a list of old ambitions and dreams that you simply couldn’t do whilst with your partner. Maybe you had wanted to learn another language or dreamed of going travelling but never got around to it. Well now is the time.
