Wazzzup! It’s been another great holiday weekend. I’m excited for those who have taken the time to reconnect with themselves and are now feeling refreshed.
But, what about those who had a negative experience? Perhaps there was a major setback or maybe like me you ate a little too much pizza and are feeling blah. What can the rest of us do if we’re not feeling our best?
The good news is…
There is a solution available to you right now.
The bounce back from adversity is always available to those who desire it. The road back starts with your belief.
What you believe shapes who you are. (Truth bomb!)
Take a break. Pull back and reevaluate.
Here are some tips you can use to help recharge and nurture yourself after a setback or just a rough weekend.
1. Get Grounded
Focus on meditation and gratitude to help rebalance the mind. Dive into this powerful duo multiple times daily. Even if it’s already part of your routine, I’m talking to you my spiritual friends, consider giving it a little more attention when times are tough. Regardless of the setback, focusing on these two will help to ease your mind and position you for a full bounce back.
Where focus goes, energy flows.” – Tony Robbins
2. Challenge Your Thoughts with Movement
Recognize the power of your thoughts. Take a moment to break free from the negative programming that is no longer serving you. I’m talking about self-doubt, limiting beliefs, and other junk that seems to get in the way of your happiness.
Get up and shake it out. Move your body, play, and let go. Find something fun to do that allows you to move your body.

3. Crank up the Self-care and Self-love
Pull back and recognize the stimuli that are affecting you. Take a break from the screen time. Yes, this means a break from television and your smartphone. (oh no!) Unplug for a little bit. Recharge your batteries by going for a long walk without technology. Instead, listen to the sounds of nature. There is lots of beautiful life all around you.
Focus on making self-care and self-love a priority.
There is a high probability that you already know this stuff. (Yeah, we’ve got skills.) However, I challenge you to ask yourself, “How can I make this work better for me?”
Adversity is temporary. Believe in yourself and bounce back to your greatness. Perhaps all you need is another minute of focused attention.
