Self Discovery Exercise Improving how you Feel

Self discovery improving how you feel

Welcome to part 3 of the Kill Stress With Self Discovery Exercises. In the first self discovery exercise we zeroed in on your stresses and set three self improvement goals.

In the second part of the series we created two time lines and set more goals. Part 3 is a little different because we’re focusing on improving how you feel physically than we are goal setting.

How you feel physically has a direct impact on your mindset, and ability to deal with problems.

Improving How you Feel

When you’re working on lessening your stress it’s important that your mind and body have opportunities to relax.

A bath or shower is a great way to relax. In fact experts say we think better in the shower and are more creative. So anything to do with a hot water de-stresses both your mind and body.

How is your fitness level? Could you use more exercise. Walking is a great way to get exercise and do some self discovery thinking while you’re walking.

Your thoughts are clearer and you get more energy just by a walking. One study discovered that walking in the fresh air was beneficial for people going through bad times.

“It was especially beneficial for people going through a tough time, such as death of a loved one, becoming unemployed or splitting up with a partner, U.S. researchers found.”

Yoga, stretching and tai chi running are also highly recommended. I don’t recommend joining to a gym unless you’re driven to work out.

In my opinion, gyms don’t work unless it’s necessary to reach a goal you really want to obtain; or else the motivation isn’t there.

This is why so many people join gyms at the beginning of the year and then stop a few months later. Gyms usually have more body builders and athletes than people who aren’t.

They’re highly driven because they have to work out to maintain their lifestyle. If you don’t have something that strong compelling you to go the gym it won’t benefit you.

Part of any self discovery journey is getting to know yourself inside and out. Pushing yourself physically, even a little builds confidence.

You don’t know what you like until you try different things. For the next few weeks try different types of exercise. Swimming is also a great way to relax and improve your fitness.

Are losing weight and getting more exercise on your goal list, or time line? If it is you might want to check out a book review on my motivation blog about the ultimate self help book for men and the best self help book for women.

The four-hour body is a slow  diet boocarbk. With the meal plan you can eat normal foods, you don’t have to starve, and you get a cheat day.

I did the plan a few years ago, and the weight’s still off, and I feel amazing when I do his 15-minute workout.

But the book is more than a slow carb diet book; he also has other ways to build muscle fast (without the gym) and a bunch of other ways to improve your life.

Click here to check out the review – I will warn you it’s fairly long.

That’s it for today’s self discovery exercise. In the last one we see how to curb harmful habits. Bad habits make stress worse. We think they calm us, but they

The next self discovery exercise gives you the opportunity to take an honest look at yourself. But don’t worry it will be fun. Click here for Part 4 of the series.

Until next time
