When faced with a difficult scenario, such as a divorce, layoff, health problem, bankruptcy, or even a pandemic, you may assume you have no other option. In truth, you always have a choice in how you respond to life's challenges. Indeed, life will place you in situations that you do not enjoy or desire. When this occurs, you have the option of responding in a variety of ways. And how you approach the situation depends entirely on your decision. Even when things are bad, remembering the fundamentals of life may help us stay on track. Some individuals use religion to assist them goes through life's obstacles, but Mindfulguides employs some habits that are life’s essentials to help you get through it. These habits and mindfulness programs help you regulate your nervous system and meet life challenges.

  • The most effective technique to create self-hatred and poor self-esteem is to judge a person's character rather than his behavior. This is especially true for kids and teens who are still figuring out who they are. Saying "that behavior was thoughtless/inconsiderate" rather than "You are thoughtless" is significantly more effective.
  • Our rigorous norms and beliefs about life are more likely to be broken the stricter they are. You will be happier if you learn to modify and adapt.
  • We are more likely to allow people to take us for granted when we lack limits, i.e., what we will and will not tolerate. Make a list of what works and what doesn't for you. Others may try to humiliate you by neglecting your needs, rejecting your experiences, and making you feel inadequate and bad. You have the option to refuse; people-pleasing must have a limit. It is never good to rely on others for approval to the point of sacrificing your self-esteem.
  • Less is more in this case. We seek more at the expense of our quality of life. Humans may be very content with simple lifestyles, but we want to complicate things. Choose less...simplicity.
  • People have found themselves wishing away the current moment in the anticipation of a better future one. What they've discovered is that the envisioned bliss of the future isn't precisely what they expected — it's never as nice. They are now attempting to ‘saturate' my senses in the present. Moment by moment, take it all in.
  • Working for something bigger than us, or feel appreciated and needed, is a terrific way to feel fulfilled. We all need to believe that our lives have meaning. What that varies from person to person. What would you wish to hear at your eulogy about yourself? Use this as a guided meditation for mindfulness and connection.
  • Yes, life may be a drag at times, but at the end of the day, seeing the lighter side or learning from the experience helps our emotional selves cope with hardship more effectively. Keep a sense of humor, and remember that is all in this crazy life together.
