Mental Health

3 Things I am grateful for
Today something a bit different on my blog! It's been a few months since I've written a post on here, but I'm back! Nowadays it's so easy to start comparing yourself with others and to overlook the positive things you already have in your life. (I'm guilty..;)) If you recognise yourself doing this, it's okay because it's in human nature to compare yourself to others. However, if you start to feel bad when doing that, then it's good to take a step back and self-reflect in order to not let it get to you. (which is of course easier said than done) 

3 Things I am grateful for
One thing that could possibly help is to write down a few things each day that you are grateful for. This helps for you to process your thoughts and to focus more on the good, shifting away from the bad which was caused by comparing yourself. You don't have to write whole paragraphs (unless you enjoy writing then definitely do it๐Ÿ˜‰) and otherwise just a few sentences or even words are enough to shift your focus. After a while, let's say a week or a few weeks you slowly get into the habit of it (usually takes 3 weeks to create a routine/stick to a new habit). It's something small to do that can really change your way of thinking. And if you think in a positive way, you'll see that when you look in the mirror too! Below I'll share a few of my things that I'm grateful for. So let's get comfy, grab your tea  or coffee and let's get right to it! 

1. The people in my life 

I'm very thankful for my parents, my lovely boyfriend (if you're reading this hi!;), friends.. grandmother.. It's a really nice feeling to have some people around you that care about you and can say everything to. I can say that these people feel like home to me. 

2. My health 

I'm also grateful for my health. The only thing I'm coping with are my pms symptoms, like restless legs, tiredness, etc. Especially in high school I didn't know how to cope with it. But now luckily with taking magnesium, having a good sleeping routine, picking out foods that help with specific fats etc, and working out it has become a lot less. Now I know that a week before my period I'll probably have less energy so I plan a bit around it if possible to make that week a bit less busy, because I noticed extra stress can increase the symptoms. 

3. Being able to witness growth

Sometimes I don't realise how much I have progressed and grown. It's usually in moments like when I go for a walk and thoughts pop up that I realise for example I handle some things differently like how to cope with failures or mindset or things like that. And I find it beautiful to see that in the people in my life as well! Nobody is perfect, we're all human so seeing a friend progress and growing compared to last year is really nice to see. Because really I believe the people you spend most of your time with influence you as well, even just a tiny bit. So choose wisely who you spend time with and give your energy to. 

3 Things I am grateful for

We're nearing the end thanks a lot for reading! I hope you enjoyed it and maybe even that it helped you even a tiny bit towards creating a more positive mindset. And remember that having a positive mindset does not equal being happy all the time. It's more the perspective you take in life. I wish you a lovely weekend and will be back soon for another post!
