Getting some advice from your fellow friends and family is very essential for

growth during such a stage, as this will help you make more health decisions that

will eventually put you in a better position.Usually people tend to think that talking

about your problems with someone and asking for help makes you look some kind

of way , but how would you know what to do right if you don’t ask?.


Talking about your problems and opening up will leave some pressure off of you

and help you to feel more comfortable with yourself, so its important to try and get

advice were you can in all things that you do.If you know people that have been

through the same situation that you are going through talk to them, because most

to keep moving with people that will build you up and cheer you on, having your

family members really helps.

body but in this case we will use it differently, by detoxing we mean getting rid of

things that might be causing you from not moving forward.The thing that people

might forget is that when you’re in a place or situation that isn’t working out for you

, it can be used as an opportunity to start over and have complete control of what

happens next.


This can also be a good time to get rid of any bad habits that you might have been

practicing and even getting rid of some people that might have been bringing you

down, so use this time to carefully strategies for whats to come.




10.Learning Opportunity


As mentioned earlier this time can be used to separate yourself from all the bad

vices that you used to be apart of but it can also be used as a time to learn

something new.Therefore going through some bad experiences can be a good

way to gain some knowledge on things that you might not have known and this

can make you a better person,so take this into consideration whenever things

might not be going your way.


This is very useful if the situation was caused by a mistake that you might have

made in the past ,so that being said learning from it will give you insight on what

not to do next time.




11.Believing & Self Motivation


This is one of the most important things to help you overcome any situation is

believing in your abilities, if you don’t have faith in yourself you will be easily

deterred from what you are supposed to be doing.So have some confidence In

yourself , trust and believe in your abilities you will get yourself out of anything.


Always be motivated in whatever you do and to get that boost in your confidence ,

having some good words by some motivational speakers can help you.To further

lift your mood you can listen to your favorite artists and this believe it or not

actually does help.





















12.Being Grateful


Even when the times aren’t that great it is very important for you to remain grateful

for the things that you have been given, because gratitude allows you to be more

accepting and content with each and everything that happens to you. So be

thankful that you are in this situation for it might be a blessing in disguise and may

help transform you for your future.You have to be grateful because there are

many people in the world today that don’t even have half of what you have, so

time to just do things that will make you smile and feel happy, always find some

time for yourself to do what you would like as its critical for personal care.




14.Express Yourself


Going through a hard time might cause you to experience all sorts of emotions

which is okay , however its very important that you don’t bottle these up.In an

article posted on the psychology today website , it was stated that being in touch

with your emotion makes you a better person and a better parent.


That being said its important to find activities in which you can freely show

express yourself, this can be either through art and drama or through a more

physical activity such as sports.So try as much as possible to become more

involved in such exercises because , being able to express yourself is important

for your growth during this period in time.




15.Taking A time out


Sometimes we might start to over-think a situation and will cause us to go through

alot both mentally and physically, therefore taking sometime just to relax and do

nothing is very important for us. Most times the reason we might not be very

productive is because we don’t give ourselves the break we need and you might

as well take this as an opportunity to start to add such an important step into your

daily routine.


Life is not that easy so its okay to go through a little bit of a rough patch because,

if you are winning all the time you might forget how it actually feels to appreciate

that victory.So that being said embrace the moment and never give up for it shall

soon pass away, you’ll look back at it and smile because you managed to

overcome it .


Remember its how we act in these situations that can make or break us , that

being said stay positive and believe in your abilities.
