We often face with such times that bring us down. It could be caused by de-motivational factors like poor performance at work, failure in job-hunting, dissatisfaction about one’s appearance. Whichever contributor it’s formed of, it is hard to deal with. The longer the dark moments stay, the more you might suffer.
But let’s put it different way. The dark might be an opportunity for you to truly discover yourself. During the dark times, you would probably feel vulnerable, miserable, isolated and can’t relate to others. This is a perfect sign that you need yourself. you need to rely on yourself cause yourself will be the best one that understands you and your dark.
- Classical music & walk
This is still one of the hobbies that I’m fond of doing when I’m too stuffed, stressed and need a room for myself to think in a mood. Classical music without lyrics and strolling in the park or streets have always been a great help.
- Walking up with Yoga
Because I used to suffer from a bad posture, I have invited this in my daily routines. I do stretchings from time to time throughout the day. But releasing the tension in my body muscles in the morning right after sleep with Yoga is a perfect way to start a day. Turn on some Jazz classics or sound of nature along with it, it will be even more beneficial with those positive vibes stimulated by auditory sense.
- Tea before bed
It is medically proven that tea has benefits for people with insomnia. In my case, I feel sleepy about 30 to 60 mins after drinking tea. So definitely try this if you struggle falling into sleep (stay away from your phone before sleep. Very important!). I like drinking herbal teas such as Camomile or Lavender at night, as they are caffeine-free (it could differ by brand, check out the labels).
These are what I have grown when I was having difficult times. They seem subtle but huge in a way that I manage my mood, physical health and inner peace. The best part of these hobbies is that I get a chance for quality thoughts. As an intensive-thinker, this is crucial.
