4 Quick Ways To Rediscover Yourself

May 28th, 2021

Art Prints
 

 

With the onslaught of the 2020-21 pandemic, many people (including me) have lost sight of some of their ambitions, their connections with family and friends, etc.
 
And so, it can be easy to lose sight of ourselves as we navigate the winding paths of our complicated lives.
 
Outside voices drown out our own thoughts, we spend all of our energy running between commitments and there never seems to be enough hours in the day, let alone extra time to focus on ourselves.
 
When we finally get a chance to breathe, we may find that we don't even recognize the person we've become.
 
The problem is that losing touch with our true selves can lead to:

  • a lack of fulfillment,

  • dissatisfaction,

  • and general unhappiness.


 
If you're feeling lost today, make a firm commitment to rediscover yourself so you can move forward with your life in the best way possible. Quickly read these suggestions and then get started.
 
It's really that easy!
 

4 Ways To Rediscover Yourself So That You Can Move Forward With Your Life


 

1. Make time for yourself


 
It's not always easy to find time for ourselves but it critical to do so in order to rediscover yourself.
 
Make a commitment to this investment and stick to it. It doesn't have to be a lot of time; it might be engaging in reflection during your commute or giving some thought to what really makes you happy as you walk the dog.
 
The length of time and frequency don't really matter as long as you are doing it regularly.

 

2. Re-discover something from your past


 
Think about the times you were happiest and things you used to enjoy.
 
Are they still in your life now or have they fallen away over time, making space for something else you have had to prioritize?
 
Re-visit something you've enjoyed as it is likely to bring you joy once again and help you to connect with your true self.

 

3. Practice gratitude every day


 
Gratitude practice is beneficial for a number of reasons, one being that it helps us to see what is truly important to us as an individual.
 
Start a gratitude journal, either writing daily or weekly, and write down three things that you are grateful for.
 
Then, offer up a quick prayer thanking God for remembering you today. He does listen!
 
Commit to doing this at your designated frequency and think of new, specific things each time (don't take the easy way out and simply write Family or Career or Health each time).
 
The longer you engage in this activity, the easier it will become.
 
You'll soon find yourself taking note of experiences at the time, rather than needing to think long and hard to identify what you are grateful for.
 
After a period of time you will be able to identify themes, and these will help to show what your personal values are.

 

4. Consider those negative people who bring you down


 
A well-known truth, some people build us up, while others drag us down.
 
So, if you have people in your life who are preventing you from becoming your true self, it may be time to let them go.

While this may be difficult (or maybe impossible), it's really difficult to move on with your life if you have toxic people continually holding you back.

 

Take Action to Improve Your Life Situation


 
Remember, positivity and rediscovery begins with the first step.
 
I once heard a quote which said; "A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."
 
So, when is the best time to take that first step? Right now, wouldn't you agree? :-) ~ Jean

How Improving Time Management Can Improve Your Life

May 28th, 2021

Sell Art Online
 

 

Sure, it's really difficult to put a dollar number on time, yet you cannot deny its value.
 
That's why, learning how to manage our time effectively can be hugely beneficial. In fact, it improves our lives in a number of ways, making it easier to complete our tasks and enjoy our time God gave us.
 
What are some of the benefits which come from time management? That's what we're about to discover in this short writing. So, read, enjoy and take action...
 

FACT: How Improving Your Time Management Can Improve Your Life


 

Time management reduces stress


 
Improving your time management can go a long way in reducing your stress.
 
Consider how often we stress about time. We constantly worry if we can get something finished in time. Or, we rush off to our next commitment, hoping that we won't be late.
 
Truth is, effective time management reduces this stress by ensuring we no longer rush or worry about fitting everything in.
 
It also allows us to plan better, preventing our brain from stressing out about the unknown.
 

Managing our time increases productivity too!


 
Better time management leads to increased productivity because we are less likely to waste time wondering what to do next.
 
And, it's a well-known fact that better productivity leads to a happier life with less aggravation.
 
In fact, managing time effectively typically involves a good schedule and an understanding of how long certain tasks take.
 
Both help us to move more smoothly through different activities as we have a specific focus on the activity at hand.
 
And, we'll spend less time stressing, leaving more time available to be productive.
 

Do you have trouble making good decisions?


 
Improved time management results in better decision making for two key reasons:
 
  1. less time spent stressing and,

  2. more time to make the actual decisions.


 
When we are in a state of stress, it can be more difficult to think clearly.
 
Logic can be blurred by emotions and we don't always make the best decisions.
 
So, managing time reduces our stress, and improves our decision making process.
 
Additionally, strong time management skills free up additional time that can be used to make decisions, rather than making rash decisions under pressure when faced with a deadline.
 

How Effective Time Management Reduces Procrastination


 
"I plan to do away with procrastination -- Tomorrow!" :-)
 
All joking aside, procrastination is so, so common, isn't it? We all tend to put things off; especially those unpleasant tasks, don't we?
 
But, when we focus on time management, we begin to procrastinate less.
 
When we break the bonds of procrastination, we understand the tasks that need to be done and the deadlines attached to each one.
 
And, we understand the time it takes to do each of these tasks. This leads us to setting goals and putting aside time when we will complete them--and we have better control over interruptions.
 
All of these things mean we are more likely to get important things done, rather than delaying them for another day as we know there won't be time for them.
 
Our focus is improved and we will simply work through things in order of priority.
 

One Quick Time Management Tip You can Use Starting Today


 
I've found managing time works best when I make a list. Always put the most important tasks at the top. If you've included ten chores for today, do the most important first! Then, if you don't have time to do numbers 7-10, you accomplished more than you ever imagined!
 

Try it out. Feel great when it works! 'Nuff said! - Jean

3 Mistakes to Avoid In Your Daily Affirmation Practice

May 28th, 2021

Art Prints

 

If you're like me, you most likely use affirmations to take your day to a better level. But, sometimes we get caught up with everyday challenges and our motivation goes south for the winter.

That's the problem. But thankfully, there are some solutions. I've listed them for you below...

First of all, affirmations can be an incredibly powerful tool that you can use to help you achieve your life's desires.

Thousands of people use positive affirmations to obtain success and realize their dreams.

However, there are just as many who practice affirmations but never see results.

This might be because they are not using them correctly.

Here are three mistakes you want to avoid in your daily affirmation practice if you want them to work for you.

First Affirmation Mistake? Giving Up Too Early


With affirmations, consistency is incredibly important. Once you get started with your practice, the repetition has a lasting effect that will continue to build upon itself.

Repeating your affirmations daily make it much easier to maintain. Plus, every time you say the statement you significantly magnify the results. The mistake that many people make is that they give up the process entirely too early. When you give up too soon, you don't give the affirmations enough time to set into your subconscious.

Using a Different Affirmation Each Day


Using a different affirmation every day is like trying to work on a dozen various projects at once. Since each project requires your energy and attention, you can't help but shift your focus and effort from project to project. However, if you want to see results right away, then you have to focus on just one affirmation and stick with it.

When it comes to affirmations, it is all about focus. To make your affirmations effective, you have to use the same affirmation daily for at least 30 days.

Lack of Attention Mastery


If you've been using positive affirmations for a while and have yet to achieve results, and you've tried everything else, it could mean that you aren't entirely focusing your attention on the affirmation.

The reality is that most people have incredibly short attention spans, and they are distracted continuously like toddlers. To make your statements work for you, you have to master your attention span, which only comes with practice.

By practicing your positive affirmations daily, you can learn how to master your attention. When you can learn how to master your attention, you will start to master your manifestations.

What to do Now? Get Started!


If you haven't had success with your daily affirmations yet, don't worry, you just have to make a few simple changes to your daily practice. Avoid the mistakes listed above, and you'll quickly find success with using affirmations to achieve everything you desire.

I hope you enjoyed this little affirmations post. Now, you've got plenty of reasons to stay motivated today for success in life! - Jean

As I was writing this article, a thought came to mind. Exactly, what does the word "habit" mean.
 
So, I looked it up on this is what I found on Wiki.com ....
 

" A habit (or wont as a humorous and formal term) is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously."


 
I have a quick question for you. Is your daily routine often put on hold because of a bad habit?
 
If so, I believe I have at least one answer for you.
 
These tips on how to alter your habits can really help you to rediscover your life and move forward!
 
We all have bad habits that we would eventually like to get rid of, right?
  
If you answered yes, read my post about breaking bad habits below -- I believe I can help you...
 

Finally!! Alter Your Worst Habits to Change Your Life Forever


 

Habits, Where Do These Foul Habits Come From?


 
Firstly, some of our worst habits are acquired from:
 
  • training,

  • influences,

  • observance,

  • and practice.


 
We acquire a lot of good and bad habits throughout our life, which some are goodness and others are foul.
 
Good habits we may keep, but if one wants to better their life the foul habits have to take a hike.
 
Eliminating bad habits however isn't simple, especially if a dependency is involved.
  
For this reason, we may learn how to change your habits.
 

Excuses! Excuses! Excuses!


 
Individuals wander through life making excuses.
 
Anytime an individual sees something complicated, they'll frequently make excuses why they can't deal with the issue.
 
This is a rough-cut problem in the world, which we’ve all heard 1000000000000s of times.
 
If you're out to better your life, you need to state, “This is something that blocks me from accomplishment and I've the might to change it.
 

No More Excuses!


 
The first key to success is quit making excuses. You are able to commit by choosing a fresh habit. Start each day with an affirmation such as this one...
 

Today I'm going to quit judging other people and myself.


 
Judging others is a common error individuals make in the world. They spend time labeling other people and themselves.
 
This gets them nowhere but in a world of chaos.
 

Are Your Thoughts Always Negative? Maybe It's Just Habit


 
If you spend your life believing negative and stating negative connotations, attempt changing your ways today.
 

Instead of saying things like ... "I can’t alter this. My life is full of bunk; I can’t swing it any longer. Why me?"
 
Say... "I may change something and I'm going to."
 
Rather than stating life is full of bunk, accept it as truth yet move forward to make your life better.
 

Baby Steps For Success!


 
Once you begin to make changes to improve your life, begin small.
 
Rather than jumping the gun, take little steps to success.
 
Too many times individuals try to change overnight. This only leads to frustration.
 

Don't Worry! You're Not Alone


 

When you're working to alter your life and working on changing bad habits make certain you seek support and feedback.
 
You don't have to walk the road to success alone. Feedback is discovered at your library, the Net, at colleges, etc.
 
Ask somebody you trust to support you and provide you feedback when required as well
 

What to do Now? Get Started!


 
If you haven't had success with your daily affirmations yet, don't worry. You just have to make a few simple changes to your daily practice. Avoid the habitual mistakes listed above, and you'll quickly find more success in life.
 
In fact, simply breaking some of these bad habits above, you'll be on your way to achieving more of what you desire. In my inspirational blog I've included tons of great tips to improve your outlook on life.

May 28th, 2021

Art Prints 


Whether you believe it or not, you can attract anything in your life that you give attention to, because like attracts like.
 
Positive affirmations are a powerful tool that can make the opposite happen.
 
By believing in a thought or sentence and repeating it to yourself regularly, you have the power to attract more positivity to your life.
 
Your words are incredibly powerful, and when repeated correctly, positive affirmations can be an impactful tool that will help you find the power to accomplish things that you didn't think were possible.
 
However, creating a positive affirmation that will work for you takes just a little bit of skill and common sense
 
And keep in mind, they only work if you believe in them.
 
Don't Stop Here!!
 
Keep reading and learn how easy it is for you to create positive affirmations that you can believe in and achieve all your life's greatest desires.
 

How to Create Positive Affirmations


 

Identify What You Want!


 
To get started writing a positive affirmation for your life, you have to think about what you really want.
 

Think about what would make your life happier and write those thoughts down.
 
The essential part of creating positive affirmations is ensuring that you are completely clear about what you want without worrying about the when or the how.
 

List the Attributes You'll Need!


 
When you've identified what you want, the next step is determining the attributes that you'll need to achieve your goal.
 

You should list between four and six things that you need to be, rather than the things that you need to do.
 
Once you've written these out, circle a few that you believe to be the most essential attributes that you will need to embody to reach your goal.
 

Put Your Affirmation In Writing!


 
Once you have your desires and attributes written down, it's time to create your affirmation.
 
You want to write at least one to two sentences that state the goal and attributes in a positive and empowering way.
 
Since this can be challenging, be sure to write down some ideas as they come to you and repeat them out loud.
 

Practice! Practice! Practice! Your New Affirmation!


 
Now that you've created an affirmation, it's time to practice it and repeat it often.
 
Say your affirmations when waking up and before going to bed, for example. Repeat each affirmation about 10 times during the day. Just in case you have a hard time remembering, I have listed several ways to remind you ...
 
  • Set a reminder on your phone

  • Set your phone's background to a picture of your affirmations

  • Put your affirmations on Post-Its and place them around your home or office


 
Just Do Whatever Works For You!!
 
Affirmations are incredibly useful in helping you achieve your desires as long as you do them correctly.
 
Remember, you have the power to use your mind to create the future you desire.

4 Steps for Making Positive Affirmations Work

May 28th, 2021

How to make positive affirmations work

Did you realize many of us fall short on reaching our goals because we don't have persistence? We either get bored or just give up.
 
This may be the way you feel right now! But, did you know your outlook on life can be transformed simply by reading positive affirmations every day?
 
Positive affirmations are one of the most powerful tools that you can use to create a meaningful, successful, and fulfilling life.
 
Many people have developed powerful affirmations that bring about change in their behaviors and circumstances.
 
When you knowingly use positive affirmations, the effect these affirmations have on your life will not only be powerful, but will also give you a much higher chance of achieving your goals.
 
If you want to make sure that your positive affirmations work for you, you'll want to follow these four simple steps.
 

4 Simple Steps for Making Positive Affirmations Work for You


 
1.Start Your Day with Daily Positive Affirmations!
 
Start your journey to manifesting all your desires with daily affirmations.
 
Daily affirmations are statements that describe your goals in their completed states.
 
You improve your physical health with regular physical exercises, so you should be using daily affirmations as a mental exercise for your mind, as well as your perception.
 
When you repeat your positive affirmations daily, and you believe in them, you can start to create a positive change in your life.
 
2. Make Mental Visual Images!
 
Positive affirmations are much more effective when you use them with dynamic visualization.
 
Combining your affirmations with visualization techniques is a great way to speed up your manifestations.
 
Instead of merely reading positive affirmations out loud, you should also visualize the outcome that you want to see.
 
Not only do visual images motivate you and make you feel the changes, but they can also prepare you mentally for the challenges that you will need to overcome during the process of achieving your goals.
 
3. Avoid Reading Negative Sentences!
 
In your high school English class, you were taught the difference between affirmative, negative, and interrogative sentences.
 
Stop using negative sentences, like "I no longer suffer from migraines," and consciously convert them into positive affirmations, like "I live a pain-free life."
 
When you try to conceive a negative statement or thought in your mind, you have to convert it to a positive statement if you want it to be effective.
 
4. Don't Forget to Include Emotions!
 
Powerful and effective affirmations must include content, positivity, and emotion.
 
The content is describing the specific outcome that you are hoping to achieve, while positivity provides for the elimination of negative vibrations.
 
The emotion is what gets to the heart of how you feel about the outcome you're hoping to achieve.
 
Affirmations can program your mind and can be a powerful tool for changing your mood, state of mind, and for manifesting a change in your life.
 

What to do Now? Take Action!


 
If you haven't had success with your daily affirmations yet, don't worry. You just have to make a few simple changes to your daily practice and follow the 4 Simple Steps for Making Positive Affirmations Work for You.
 
Remember, always maintain a positive attitude, no matter what!.
 
So, when is the best time to take that first step? Right now, wouldn't you agree? :-) ~ Jean
