Believe and Bounce Back

Read Time: 2 min

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.

Need some ideas? Check out my friend Brad Rudner’s site, he has some great suggestions for adding more play and energy into your routine.

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.

High fives and knuckles,

  1. This really made me chuckle — you definitely walk your talk, taking the same advice you gave me: “Suck it up, buttercup” and get back on the path….

    And why do people carry their smartphones with them on a walk in beautiful Mother Nature? Every time I leave the house, I consider it a marvelous opportunity to escape the electronics….

    Am I the only one who remembers the days when we went out to the movies partly as an excuse to get away from a ringing phone?!?

    Thanks for the tips!! 🙂

  2. Right on! It’s a great reminder on the importance to “Recharge and nurture yourself”. Great tips Jace!

  3. So important. Even if you already know these things, it’s valuable to make sure you are really engaging in them and not just going through the motions.

    Good bounce back!

  4. Great tips Jace! Going for a walk in nature without any electronics is like finding my soul again. We need to practice some self love and self care everyday!

  5. I totally get that…also happens when you misplace your phone for a bit and all of a sudden realize how freeing that feeling is, and you don’t bother rushing around to find it. Human recharge 🙂

  6. This post resonates with me after a low this week, it is good to just step back and get back to origins. I would love to have a 2 weeks electronics free retreat to reset. Thinking of it, make this 2 month

  7. Priceless reminders Jace. And sure, some of this stuff we may already know, as you said, but that doesn’t mean we actually Practice them 😉
