Life is just like a tide in an ocean; you have highs and you have lows in life.
High waves are a representation of excitement in life and low waves represents weariness and hopelessness.
What do I do during those weary moments of my life?
It very simple, I’ve a few tips of my own. Some might be weird, some might already be followed by you and some would make you smile a little.
The first one on my list is to cry. It eases away all the emotional pain and feelings of distress. It proves to be a good therapy. When I’m thinking too much and the blues have drained me of my sleep, I simply cry. I simply cry at it and not laugh at it. I would laugh at it had the blues hit me during my high tide, but during my low tides I like to cry.
Let me tell you how it proves to be effective.
I make sure that I think about all the aspects of the problem and start crying at night when everyone is off to sleep. After crying for sometime I go off to sleep. I’m always able to sleep peacefully after that. Let me warn you, the next day I wake up with a swollen face. But it proves to be effective as the pain has subsided. If it still exists I carry the therapy for few more days the pain just vanishes away and I bounce up like a high tide.
The second one is to write. Even before I started writing, and much before the WordPress coming into my life I had a small dairy. It is still there with me. All my experiences good and bad are captured in it. It serves as a scrap book, capturing the good and bad moments of my life (no pictures included, just words). Over the years my dairy has been my silent companion by simply giving itself to me by letting me jot down the important moments of my life.
The next on my list is: praying and meditating.
Of course this should be at the top of the list but it is not. Let me explain. When I have lost all hope, I have a restless mind and I no longer can take the pain-I simply cry. When I’m in a situation and floating in the sea of life, I analyze and try to find a solution-I write. When I’m all positive about the solution and know the steps to take- I pray or mediate.
