It’s not always that easy to just feel good about yourself. As much as we’d all like to wake up every day and feel amazing, things rarely work out that way. A lot of the time, it can feel like a huge struggle to even feel okay, let alone amazing! But this is a habit that we allow ourselves to get into. When really, you’re in control of how you feel and what you do with your life. You don’t have to accept that you just feel awful. Although your brain may be programmed to focus on the negativity first, you can easily turn that around. And yes, it can be easy! A lot of the time, you just need to turn to a few small things that can help you to feel better in an instant.
Because that’s the beauty of feeling good, it doesn’t have to be about living an amazing life or working to change things so that you can feel amazing. It’s about choosing to feel amazing right now, and then going on to change your life. And this is entirely possible. Whether you want to feel happier about aging, deal with stress better, or just see the brighter side of life, you can. You just need to choose to do it. If you’re a little unsure of how you can do that, then you’ve come to the right place. Because we’re going to walk through ten very simple ways that you can feel good today.
Block Out Negativity
The first thing you’re going to want to do is to block out any negativity that comes your way. And you won’t always realize that you are letting it in, but when you’re having a bad day or you’re feeling off, then you probably are. But you don’t have to panic, as there are plenty of ways to protect yourself from negative energy. You just need to be aware that this has happened and then choose to block it out using those tactics.
As a step on from that, it’s also going to help you to if you start to think about the good things in life. All too often, we focus on the bad. And guess what, this then leads you to feel bad. But instead, you’re going to want to make sure that you focus on the things that you’re grateful for in life. When you can focus on these things, you’ll suddenly realize how good life is after all.
Look For The Good
As a bit of a step on from that, you’ll then want to make sure that you start to look for the good things in life, in people, and in situations. It’s often all too easy to focus straight on the bad or the negative things in life, but this isn’t ever going to help you to feel good yourself. Instead, give yourself a day to actively look for the good things in life. When you do, you’ll suddenly perk up at the sight of a pretty flower or an act of kindness.
Focus On Your Health
Next, you’re going to want to think about yourself a little bit more. Because a lot of the time, when you’re not feeling your best, it’s because your health has taken a bit of a tumble. But that can be easily solved. Start to think about when you go to sleep, what you eat, and how much exercise you do. Because all of these factors can affect the way you feel.
Have A Wellness Day
It’s also a good idea to let yourself a bit of a wellness day or evening. If you know that you’re feeling down, just go with it – but make sure you at least try to turn it around. Having a pamper night can work wonders. Not only are you going to be able to relax, but the actual pamper session itself is likely to make you feel a whole lot better too.
Look After Yourself
From here, you’re then going to want to make sure that you start taking better care of yourself physically too. Because a lot of the time, you won’t be feeling your best when you’re not looking your best. So get online and do some research with things like Life Cell reviews to find products that will work for you. Then you can establish a routine that will help you to feel your best.
It’s also a good idea to think about treating yourself. Because sometimes, you just need that little pick me up. Head out and buy yourself a new pair of shoes, cook yourself a nice meal, or have a movie night to yourself. When you actually try to treat yourself well, it’s impossible to feel bad.
Find Positive People
We’ve already talked about the importance of blocking out negativity, but you’ll often want to take this a step further by making sure that you surround yourself with positive people. You’re often influenced by those that you’re around all of the time, so find more positive people to spend time with and you’ll notice an instant uplift.
Listen To Something Motivational
If you find that you can’t overly convince yourself to feel more positive, then turn to somebody else. When you listen to something motivational, it’s hard not to feel happy, inspired, and good. Find a personal development podcast that you like the sound of and see what difference listening to it could do for your mood.
And finally, you’re going to want to try being a bit more mindful. Essentially, you want to make sure that you’re in the present as much as possible. And this can be hard when you’re used to letting your thoughts run away with you. But by meditating or trying out yoga, you should find that you can become a lot more present. It’s the process of feeling present that allows you to feel so much calmer and in control of your life.

I agree with you 100%. It’s not always easy to be a positive person but is rewarding when we can be.

Thank you. I’m a work in progress myself.
These are all great tips! It’s something we should all work harder at.
I have had a killer week (I had put in 48 hours by Thursday at noon. TOO MUCH! So I treated myself to having lunch with friends. It turned into a three hour fun fest. It felt amazing.
That is sure is some good advice. Always a good idea to be positive. Sometimes it’s harder then it sounds.

These are great pointers and I love it as it reminds me of a lot of things that I need to do. I am always grateful for everything that God has given me.
Block negativity and take care of myself. Yes. I need to be better about all of these.
I need to remind myself about #3 – Look for the Good. I have a tendency to focus on the negative. There’s plenty of good out there – I just need to seek it out. Thanks for the reminder.
We really should block negativity and be associated with positive minded people. This can create a better environment. We should always be contented and grateful.
I really like this post! It is a great reminder of what we should be doing for ourselves! I think we are always concerned about how others are doing we forget ourselves sometimes!
This is a great list. I do try to do a lot of these. I do treat myself to a new book, or a tasty lunch. I also try to be around positive people.
All of these are positive things we should be doing and thinking. Remember the glass is always half full not half empty. Remind yourself 10 things you are thankful for everyday.
I love all of these tips! I really like the one about looking for the good in others and situations. I try to be a positive person at all times and it really does help shape the way I view life.
I love these and needed them badly!! Especially be grateful! That is my favorite!
