How you could overcome Sadness

Everyone wants to be happy, but truth is, it cannot last forever and same goes for sadness.  You have to take step back and think about it.  When you feel happy you don’t have time to think even for a moment, but when that time goes away and sadness takes over you.  It’s very hard time for you to pass.  So, how you can overcome the sadness?  It could be very easy as accepting the truth, know the cause and effect you are going through at the moment.  You might have heard somewhere “what goes around, it comes around”, that is the truth.  If you do everything right and nothing even for a moment you think of bad.  Like when you are helping someone, or doing your normal everyday job, then there is nothing that could go wrong or to worry about.  If something does go wrong, it’s for the better future, at the moment you may not know.  Most of times we don’t have moments to think about, and we react fast trying to void the truth.  These types of moments it’s very hard to relax, because within ourselves, thousands of questions rise within us.  If you practice it, slowly you will get it, it’s not something you learn overnight, just like you did not start walking or speaking overnight.  Try it, every time you feel sad, just breathe in and out 3-5 times fully, and just focus on breathing, feel the air while you inhaling/exhaling.  You might already feel better.

One of the best things you can do is to be yourself in the moment.  Don’t think about yesterday or tomorrow, just live the moment, because no one knows what next moment will be.  We are so attached with our surrounding, that if someone trying to help or say something good for us, but our view point is set, so everything goes wrong way.  It’s like telling kids, don’t smoke it’s bad for you and they see you smoking.  We think many things in our head, but if you start putting on paper and see or read it, half of them are mixed with many things you don’t know or care about it.  What’s happening at the moment?  You don’t know it, because of all the thoughts in your head, so don’t waste your time and feel bad about the things you don’t have control over it.  What you should do is control what you can, like your action, reaction, behavior and attitude.  Keeping positive and believe on yourself, makes a big differences in the long run.  Environment around you could also affect you, but there might so little you can do to change it.  If you take the first step, which is action and try the change you want to make then someday that could be the dream comes true.  Changing from bad to good takes while, but it’s not impossible.

When you feel sad, just know it and accept it, and move on with it.  Talk to someone or write down on paper things in your head or say it out load or even record it then read it or play back.  At the end of these practices, getting things out of your head will make you feel lighter and free from sadness.  You can do many other things like that which makes you happy, just do something don’t sit around and keep thinking in your head.  Don’t feel you are the only one who can do things, without you the world will end, don’t think so.  World might not even know you and those who are family and friends might feel or have little hard times with or without you, but they will find a way to get around it.  So live your life freely, without hurting others, because if you do hurt others, then your turn might be next, you just don’t know when, only time knows.  Just be happy, enjoy it, and feel better by keeping positive thoughts and attitude.

Clearing your mind is very simple yet very hard thing to do, but not impossible.  If you do the search on the internet you will find many articles, books, and videos talking about how to clear your mind.  I can tell you based on my own practice, that every person have to learn on their own way and one works for them.  There is no one size fit all solution to clearing your mind.  If you practice you can accomplish anything in the world, because clearing your mind helps you focus and improves overall health.  All you have to do is practice whenever possible, it’s not necessary that you have to do every day or on specific location.  As long as you do it, that’s what matter.  It does help if you set yourself a time, when there are no distractions and less noise around you.  Early morning is best time to clear your mind, do yoga and meditation.

What you should practice

Option 1: have more time in hand

  1. Just relax and feel your own self
    a.  Feel the air you inhale and exhales
    b.  Just focus on your own breathing or body parts.
  2. Stop thinking
    a.  Don’t go back in time, which makes you think about it
    b.  Don’t go in future, which make you think about should or would like to do

Option 2: When schedule is very busy with very little time

  1. Just do what you love to do 100%
    a.  If you are working, do one task at a time, don’t think about second task
    b.  If you are sitting, walking, or running, just focus on that activity, nothing else
  2. Breathing exercises
    a.  This can be done anytime and anywhere, just breathe in and fill your chest instead of stomach.
    b.  Breath by pulling your stomach in and releasing it

There are many other activities like these you can do, just find the one that works for you.  One thing to keep in your mind, don’t overdo it or force your mind.  Also, when you are tired just relax, because doing any activity when you are tired just gets worse.  If you are getting headache, it’s most likely because there is something that troubles you, which you may or may not know about it.  Best ways to clear up is talk about it, if possible with someone or say it out load.  Sometimes it helps if you just write it out whatever you are thinking, then read it and see if it makes any sense, by the time you done, your headache will be long gone.  Hope this helps someone out there, practice makes perfect, perfection comes afterward, then comes success.
