5 Tips to Stay Positive When Life Gets Tough

When things start to get tough, it’s easy to start to dwell on the negative. But it’s important to remember that life can be unpredictable and there’s no guarantee that things will always go our way. So, rather than focusing on the negative, it’s important to stay positive. No matter how bad things seem, remember that there is always a chance for things to improve. Here are some tips to help you stay positive when life gets tough:


Recognize when your mood is affected by events outside of your control.

One of the most common things that impact our mood is the events that occur outside of our control. For example, if someone close to us dies, this can have a big impact on our mood. Other events that can have a big impact on our mood are things like being stuck in traffic, being pissed by someone, facing failure in some work, or unexpected workload. Regardless of the cause, it is important to recognize when our mood is affected by events that are out of our control. This will help us to better manage our emotions and stay in a positive frame of mind.

Talk to friends and family about your feelings and how you’re feeling.

Talk to friends and family about your feelings and experiences. Let them know what’s going on in your life, and be open about your feelings. Let them help you. Talk about your experiences with your friends and family. They can provide support and encouragement. Let them know if you need to talk about anything in more detail. It’s important to be able to talk about your feelings. It can help you to understand and cope with your experiences. It can be helpful to have people who understand you and who are willing to listen.

Keep a journal to document your thoughts and feelings.

Starting a journal can be a great way to improve your mental well-being, as well as to track your progress. Journaling can also be a cathartic experience, allowing you to express your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. The journal can also be a great way to document your progress and keep track of your accomplishments. Some people prefer to write in a personal notebook, while others prefer to write on a Computer/laptop. Start writing. Even if you don’t have anything specific to say right now you can simply write down your thoughts, feelings, accomplishments, or just how your day goes.

Exercise regularly to boost your mood and reduce stress.

Exercise regularly to boost your mood and reduce stress. Exercise releases feel-good endorphins that can help improve mood and reduce anxiety and stress, not just that but it also helps you to stay fit physically and emotionally. Some physicians recommend 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week. This can include brisk walking, running, cycling, swimming, or playing team sports.

Be hopeful for the future and live in the present.

When we are hopeful for the future, we live in the present. Hopeful people are resilient and are able to see the good in situations. They stay focused on their goals and stay positive, even during difficult times. When we live in the present, we are more connected to our emotions and can calm ourselves in difficult situations. We also have more patience and can appreciate the small things in life.
The future is always uncertain, but by being hopeful we can allow ourselves to dream and plan for the future. We can live in the present and enjoy the journey, instead of worrying about the destination.

When times get tough, it can be easy to fall into a negative spiral. Sometimes it gets worse that getting out of that dark room feels impossible or really hard. If needed please seek professional help in such a case.
Staying positive is important. One thing that you can do is to remember that things will get better. Another thing that you can do is focus on the good things in your life. Believe in yourself. This can be difficult, but it can help you to approach life with a positive attitude and, as a result, feel happier and more in control.

you will be okay, you have no choice

World Photography Day!

Hey!!! If you don’t know yet let me tell you that out of many of my hobbies and interests photography has stayed on top for always. But sadly, due to a full-time job and growing life I couldn’t get time for it now. But I always keep thinking to find some inspiration to pursue photography again. I hope one day I will start pressing the shutter button again to capture the time in the frame.

Here I am sharing some pictures I clicked back in time. Hope you love them♥

Don’t let anyone choose your destiny. Don’t let anyone decide a path for you. You are the master of your life. Only you.

Learning to detach – From the book “Tuesdays with Morrie”

Yesterday I picked this book again and visited to the same page to re-read the lesson. It still felt as powerful as it was at the first read. So just resharing my blog to read again this wonderfull life lesson from the book – Tuesdays With Morrie


¡Hola Amigos!!! Hoping you all are safe and doing well. Last week, I was reading this wonderful book “Tuesdays with Morrie” by the author Mitch Albom. The book is about sharing some really great and deep pearls of wisdom about life, by a dying man to one of his old students Mitch. They met each other every Tuesday, and Morrie shares his powerful words of wisdom and some life lessons. I don’t know if you have already read this book or not but if not, I will strongly recommend you all to read this. I believe you will find it astonishing. My today’s post is to share my feelings or can say a few thoughts on one of the topics discussed in this book “Detachment”.

I am not an emotionless

Every day is not a good day but it doesn’t mean every day is a bad day. When anyone asks me how I am doing, I always reply by saying “doing great “or “doing good” I never say “not doing good” or “not well” even to my close ones I never express my actual feelings. I think to myself that why should bother anyone? And another reason is that maybe because, sometimes I am not myself able to understand why I am feeling not well inside. Funny right? If I am not wrong, I guess it happens with everybody. But now I think should say what I am feeling in real, there is so no harm in telling someone how bad your day was/is.. right? Instead, maybe someone would be able to help you feel better. Who knows. But I should share my feelings too. After all, I am too a human being and I am not an emotionless.

The choice is all ours.

We all definitely have been through many bad days, bad moments, and bad memories but we also have passed many good days, good moments, and good memories, then why do we mostly keep thinking about all the bad things that happened in past and choose to be sad when we have the option to look for good things too. It is all up to us. The choice is all ours. So choose the way to happiness.

Swimming Pros and Cons You Must Know

Swimming is a well-known international sport and a great form of exercise. It uses almost every muscle in our body and is often prescribed as therapy for the physically challenged. Even people do swimming for fun and self-well-being. There are various strokes you can use to add variety to your swimming workout, including breaststroke, backstroke, sidestroke, butterfly, and freestyle.

It has so many mental and physical benefits and improves health but on the other side, it also has some disadvantages. It is better to know about the pros and cons if you do like to swim or you are planning to learn.

Pros of swimming

  • Swimming is good for heart health. It can make your heart work more efficiently by making it stronger.
  • It reduces anxiety and alleviates stress which helps you sleep peacefully.
  • It improves the coordination and balance of your mind and body. It also improves your body posture.
  • Swimming is a great activity for people suffering from asthma too. In fact, various breathing techniques of holding your breath underwater have been known to improve lung capacity in many asthma patients.
  • Swimming uses a larger number of muscle groups and it helps to build your strength and endurance, makes you more agile, and tones your muscles.
  • It improves the body posture and flexibility
  • Swimming for 30 – 45 minutes 3-4 days a week helps in burning calories and results in losing weight.
  • Some medical researchers have proved that swimming also helps in regulating blood sugar.
  • Swimming is also a fun and enjoyable activity and it boosts your mood.

Cons of swimming

  • Swimming in a public pool may create some problems because of the Chlorine (A chemical that kills bacteria in water) including Dry skin, Hair fall, Eye and Skin Irritation
  • The water in a swimming pool contains chlorine salts which, together with the sun rays can cause excessive tanning of the skin.
  • A swimmer’s ear is an infection in the outer ear canal. It often happens by water that remains in your ear, creating a moist environment that aids the growth of bacteria.
  • Some people also reported having diarrhea cause of uncleaned water.

The good news is there are so many swimming equipment and products available now that mitigate all risks of all problems mentioned above.

To drop down the effect of chlorine use good quality body moisturizer for skin dryness problems and after the swimming take shower with soap/body wash that contains a good amount of moisturizer and wash your hair with shampoo and nurture them with oil.

For tanning problems, there are several sunscreens available on the market. The best for swimming is one with water resistance quality.

To prevent swimmer’s ears make sure to not let the water stay in the ear, tilt your head to let the water out if it goes in your ears while swimming. You can use an ear plug also to stop the water.

If you are new to swimming or planning to learn or start swimming make sure to have proper swimming equipment.

Swimming cap/Speedo: A swimming cap prevent water from flowing in your head and protects your hair from damage from chlorine.

Swimming goggles: Goggles are one of the most recommended equipment for swimming. Chlorine in water leaves your eyes red and burns, goggles will help avoid this issue.

Ear Plug: Earplugs help dry out the residual water left over from practice and mitigate the risk of a swimmer’s ears problem.

Floating Kickboard: If you are having trouble with floating or kicking you can take the help of a floating kickboard to learn easily and find your balance.

Inflatable Armbands: Armbands commonly are suggested for the kids to learn to swim.

I hope this information I gathered for my benefit in the first place when I started to learn swimming will help you too to have safe and enjoyable swimming.

1 month of swimming

Yay! It is been one month now since I started to learn swimming. I am so happy that in one month I have learned freestyle swimming properly. I can swim one length of the pool at once and I am trying to complete a full lap at once now however that requires more stamina but that day is not that far, soon will be able to complete a whole lap at once. Further, I am learning Back floating and Breaststroke now which seems a bit easy, maybe because I have found my comfort in pool water.

Swimming is a wonderful exercise not just for the body but for the mind as well. Some of the benefits of swimming are:

  • It can make your heart work more efficiently by making it stronger.
  • It reduces the anxiety and destresses you which helps you sleep peacefully.
  • It improves coordination, the balance of your mind and body, and posture.
  • Swimming is a great activity for people suffering from asthma too. In fact, various breathing techniques of holding your breath underwater have been known to improve lung capacity in many asthma patients.
  • Swimming uses a larger number of muscle groups and it helps to build your strength and endurance, makes you more agile, and tones your muscles, and it is also very helpful in losing weight.
  • And so many others including improving flexibility, burning calories, helping in regulating blood sugar, boost mood.

Happy Summer!♥
