Sometimes, small changes or habits can have a great impact on the way we perceive life and the way we feel about something distressful that might have happened to us. Whether you are going through a rough patch or you are simply interested in improving the quality of your life, there are practical ideas you can adopt right now to uplift your mood and increase your well-being. Here are five ideas you can use to make your life better right now:

1. Do 3 Jumping Jacks

Change your physiology and you will change the way you feel. When we exercise, we produce a special range of hormones that gives us that good feeling experience we all need to get out of a rough patch.

2. Let Go of The Victim Mentality

Comparing yourself or asking unhelpful questions such as “Why me?” can only prevent you from growing and going after your goals. Learn from what you have been experiencing and empower yourself by putting it to good use.

3. List 5 Reasons To Be Grateful for Today

Gratitude has become a buzz word but the effects of feeling grateful and finding gratitude even in small details of our days are undeniable. Gratitude can be the difference between feeling sorry for yourself when life is not going your way and feeling content for just being alive.

4. Set Up a Healthy Routine

If your routine is solely based on working, eating, and sleeping, then you might need to redesign it to add more well-being practices to your day. Add time for recreation but also time to work out or engage in some other meaningful activities such as volunteering locally, or baking for your best friend.

5. Book a Call with a Coach

Life can seem and feel pretty overwhelming at times, especially if you are sensitive. It’s not only OK but advisable to ask for professional help. Working with a coach can be the turning point you are needing right now in your life. A coach is equipped to guide toward the right questions and best-fitting solutions.

Is Happiness a Realistic Goal?

realistic goal and a desirable one. It is rather impossible to be happy all the time, of course, and it is rather difficult to be in a pure state of bliss on a regular basis. However, we can aim to develop skills and strategies that enhance our level of consciousness.

The 4 Jewels of Well-being

According to neuroscientist Richard Davidson, well-being is a skill, and it can be developed with practice. It’s like learning to walk or playing the piano. The more you practice it, the more you strengthen the neuronal circuits associated with well-being, and the better you get at it. These neuronal circuits are plastic and thus can be expanded and trained. They are awareness, connection, insight, and purpose.

What is Numerology? The Meaning of Numbers 1-9

Numerology is an ancient practice that retrieves meaning from the vibrational frequency of numbers. The basic principle of numerology is that a number is not simply an amount but a living qualitative reality. This idea goes back to Pythagoras, who believed that physical manifestation must be preceded by mathematical conception, and therefore numbers provide us with a tool to measure what might seem intangible in the first place.

Modern science has already shown that every manifestation has its own wavelength, a vibrational or electromagnetic signature that can be measured by numbers.

According to Pythagoras, each number has a nature, or vibration, of its own. Modern science has already shown that every manifestation has its own wavelength, a vibrational or electromagnetic signature that can be measured by numbers. In total, there are nine distinct vibrations, and Numerology works with such a system by attributing numbers to letters, which in turn have corresponding sound vibration and form.

Numerology can be a great source of self-knowledge and personal development since it provides an analysis of character based on the attributes of numbers present in personal data such as your birth name and date. As with everything else in nature though, numbers have both positive and negative qualities. A number resembles pretty much a coin, in the sense that each one of them can represent two sides of the same principle, the difference being only its degree of vibration.

Let’s see what Numerology can tell us about the meaning of numbers 1-9 based on each number’s positive and negative attributes.

Concluding Thoughts

The power of numbers has been recognized since immemorial times. Pythagoras, the ancient philosopher, believed that numbers had inherent qualities. Picking on this, Numerology offers us an out-of-the-box tool to facilitate the exploratory journey of who we are. It works based on the principle that each number holds a particular vibrational signature and therefore attributes numbers to letters, which in turn correlate with specific sound vibrations and forms. Know your numbers and you will know more about yourself.

Know Thyself

Knowing the Self seems to be a universal quest and a human need deeply carved in our collective unconscious. In Psychology, knowing yourself is crucial for the development of your sense of self and identity. This involves knowing your values, your potential, your purpose in life, and finding healthy ways to express yourself.

The 4 Jewels of Well-being

According to neuroscientist Richard Davidson, well-being is a skill, and it can be developed with practice. It’s like learning to walk or playing the piano. The more you practice it, the more you strengthen the neuronal circuits associated with well-being, and the better you get at it. These neuronal circuits are plastic and thus can be expanded and trained. They are awareness, connection, insight, and purpose.

Awareness

I like to say awareness is your ability to scan reality. As a scanner, you are not meant to process or edit data but to really look at what is there. Mindfulness-based practices, such as mindful coloring or mindfulness meditation, are great tools to develop this circuit and expand your awareness. If you are a beginner in this topic, you can listen to my free guided introduction to Mindfulness Meditation here.

Connection

Human beings are wired for connection and bonding. If you look at the old and yet fascinating experiences of Harry Harlow with baby monkey rhesus, it becomes obvious that the desire to connect with comforting figures fulfills an important need: the need for closeness. Once your basic needs (e.g. food) are satisfied, affection speaks louder and our attention goes towards building empathic relationships with others.

Insight

Know thyself is an ancient adage, supposedly written in Apollo’s Temple at Delphi, Greece. Self-knowledge is essential. Knowing your emotions, thoughts, and modus operandi work as a personal guide and compass. If you don’t invest time in knowing yourself, you will eventually feel lost and with no direction to go. As Socrates said, the unexamined life is not worth living.

Purpose

Through Insight, you can find Purpose and Meaning in life. A person who lives towards a greater purpose has a reason to live, and studies have shown that people with purpose tend to live ten years more. What makes you feel happy and uplifted is linked to your purpose. The more you ignore that, the more likely you are to be depressed, anxious, and even physically sick.

Concluding Thoughts

I would say these four neuronal circuits are the four jewels of well-being. Once you put your effort and attention into developing these, you will be on the fast track towards greater happiness and well-being. Practice takes patience but it also brings great transformation.
