Key Ideas

Have enough sleep

Sleep deprivation causes us to be foggy-headed and unable to make good decisions in the short term. And in the long run, it has a slew of bad effects on our health.

Sleeping enough keeps us in a good mood and keeps our spirits high. 

Exercise

Exercise gives us a rush of endorphins and gives a boost to our good mood.

Pull out your yoga mat, tie up your running shoes or pump some iron—whatever works for you and feels good for your body.

Drink enough water

Avoid getting dehydrated, especially when you drink a lot of coffee in the office. 


Bring a big mug and fill it at the water fountain, or bring a few big bottles of water with you to the office. Sip throughout the day, and you might notice you get fewer headaches!

Keep a diary

Learn from your experiences in life by analyzing them in a diary. Use your journal as a place where you can dump whatever is going on in your mind. 

As nobody reads your diary, writing everything down can have the same effect as pouring out your heart to a therapist. 

Eat fruit and vegetables

It will keep your body healthy. 

Fried fast foods can make you feel heavy and sunken into the ground, whereas fruits and vegetables make you feel energized and can contribute to a good mood.

Love

Love is essential to humanity. Infuse your actions with love, and you will increase your vibrations and mood.

Be thankful

You can keep a gratitude list in your diary, so that you focus on the positive events in your life


By highlighting the things you feel grateful for in your everyday life, you will realize what you love about your life, be able to reinforce it and keep pumping up your mood.


Keep variety in your life

Try out something new every weekend. Visit places and neighborhoods in your city where you’ve never been to before. Cook up a dish you have never eaten, maybe from a country you have never visited. 

The possibilities are endless, and they will all bring a smile to your face and boost your mood.

Wear the clothes you love

Dress to look and be your best self. 

Whenever you see yourself in the window or mirror, you’ll notice the effort you made in the morning, and you’ll instantly lift your mood.

Use essential oils that you enjoy

Take a little bottle with a mixture of your favorite essential oils dissolved in some sweet almond oil and demineralized water wherever you go, and spray this mixture on your wrists whenever you need a little pick-me-up. 

Use a burner in your house to diffuse a scent you love, and pump your mood.

Disconnect from the internet 

It’s so easy to get sucked into the internet for hours on end—even cutting into sleep time—but it can leave us drained and feeling worn out. 

Use a curfew time in the evening, and do something truly nourishing and relaxing afterward. 

Learn something new every day

Just like your body needs wholesome food to be fueled, your brain needs continued challenges to keep on evolving

Make sure you learn something new every day. Start learning a new language, watch inspiring TED talks, solve a riddle—just make sure you use your brain every day.

Perfectionism

It can either propel you into serious action or paralyze your ability to accomplish even the most basic tasks.

Often, those who struggle with perfectionism have issues giving up control. In ...

Accept the outcome

If you’re struggling with the thought of submitting a task that you feel is less than perfect, create a list of the worst-case scenarios.

Ask yourself what's the worst that can happen. You'll most likely find out that the only negative aspect is the continuous rumination that'll keep you from finishing other important work.

Shifting your perspective

The positive side of perfectionism is the idea that you possess the motivation and a level of detailed attention that is unmatched by many.

The trouble happens, though, when you get so caught up in the details that you fail to see the bigger picture.

Alignment

Creating a joyful and fulfilling life isn't about balance, but about Alignment. An Alignment of our lives can:

  • Clarify our values and priorities.
  • Remove any noise or distraction of other's expectations.
  • Help us find the flow in life.
  • Make us let go of things that cause friction.
  • Bring order to life, rather than just trying to be everywhere, doing everything for everyone.
Taking Responsibility for our Life

Most of us have been bought up to behave in a certain socially acceptable and normal way, and we simply stick to the script and 'fit' ourselves in a certain mold, living a stereotyped life.

We need to take responsibility for creating a life that makes sense for us, as we are the authors of our own lives.

Psychotherapy Is Not Forever

Your psychologist's goal is not to keep you on as a client forever but to empower you to function better on your own.

Everyone moves at a different pace during psychotherapy — it’s a very individualized process. 

Be Open

Psychotherapy may entail exploring past events that may be impacting your life. 

However, in some instances, your psychologist may forgo delving into your past to focus on the current issue that brought you into treatment. You’ll learn to use techniques to change your current thoughts or behaviors contributing to your problem.

At its worst, humor is:
  • The wrong joke at the wrong time. It can make your brand look amateurish and unprofessional.
  • If people think you’re cracking jokes for the sole purpose of getting more attention, you’ll be seen as exploitative rather than funny.
  • Humor can cheapen certain ideas or make them be taken less seriously.
  • In some cases, humor can be outright offensive.
  • Key areas to create value with humor
    • Humorous touches can almost always improve a piece that is already valuable on its own.
    • If you’re sure a joke is going to land, it can make an effective advertisement. Test variations of the joke with a small audience first; that way, you can be sure the humor doesn’t cross a line.
    • Brand differentiation. For example, Oreo has long differentiated itself by offering a quirky, tongue-in-cheek voice across its social media platforms. This is especially effective in dry, or otherwise “boring” industries.
    • Personal branding. Elon Musk, for example, has separated himself from his companies Tesla and SpaceX by cracking jokes and roasting people on his own account.
