Doable ideas 💭

The quickest way to detach yourself from (negative) emotions:

 

Change your language.

 

“I feel sad”.

“I feel depressed.”

“I feel disappointed.”

 

Noticed the difference comparing to “I am sad”, “I am depressed”, or “I am disappointed.”?

 

You are experiencing certain emotions. But you are not them.

 

Detach yourself from your emotions → create distance from the situation → able to process and make better decisions

 

Respond, not react.

Reflections 🪞

Try negative visualisastion: imagine and mentally prepare for worst-case scenarios.

 

By naming the unknown and identifying the worst that can happen, you find solutions to mitigate it.


Mindfulness 🧘🏻‍♀️

I hope you didn’t set “be happier” as your 2024 goal.

 

Happiness is not a destination.

 

It’s just one of the emotions you would experience on a daily basis.

 

Maybe instead you want to measure how satisfied you feel, and how enjoyable life is.

 

Reflecting on my long, extensive tracking history, I found out a few “hidden metrics” that better indicate “how happy I am”: definitely not my bank account balance.
