Last updated by Katie M.

Stress, anxiety, and guilt are just a few of the many negative emotions that can affect us on a daily basis. Are you someone that other people regard as sensitive? If so, do you often hear things like ‘try not to take everything to heart’ or ‘try to take a step back from the situation’? The truth is, no matter how many times we hear this sort of advice, it doesn’t make disconnecting ourselves any easier. If you need to free yourself from stress, then the good news is, we have some truly practical tips for you.

10 Tips On How To Let Go Of Negative Vibes And Feel Freer Than Ever

Contents:

Letting go means detaching ourselves from everything that is deemed unnecessary. This therefore touches on everything that makes us suffer or that prevents us from evolving. This journey above all requires us to change our habits, to find new self-confidence, and to learn to live in the moment.

10 Practical exercises to help you let go and rediscover yourself

1. Stop saying "yes" to everything!

Instead of being so agreeable, listen to yourself, take care of yourself and above all think of yourself. Learning to say no will do you a lot of good and allow you to recharge your batteries.

2. Dedicate yourself to relaxation

To successfully cut ties with stress and anxiety, you could try sophrology. This art drives away anxiety and encourages you to embrace good vibes and downtime.

3. Adopt a benevolent attitude

Change your inner speech by being kinder to yourself. In concrete terms, replace your negative or worrying ideas with positive ones.

4. Opt for an invigorating alarm clock

As soon as the alarm clock rings and your eyes open, try to smile! The morning is a very important part of your day and has a decisive impact on your mood. Your morning routine is therefore very important, so don't hesitate to drink a glass of warm water with squeezed lemon to vitalize your body.

5. Choose to live in the moment

When you spend your time thinking about the past or even anticipating the future, you forget to live in the present moment 100%. Open yourself up to daily pleasures and invest in yourself by living the moment to the fullest.

6. Learn to put things into perspective

It's not the end of the world if something doesn't go as you planned. It’s very important to keep tabs on reality and to forgive yourself.

7. Be your true self

You may have a tendency to channel certain personality traits in public, but are they really who you are? Letting loose by dancing, singing at the top of your lungs, or laughing out loud are all great ways to wave goodbye to your self-control.

8. Have a sense of gratitude

Write down in a notebook all the positive things that have happened in your day. This way, even after you've had a bad day, you'll see all the great things that have happened previously!

9. Listen to music

Take the time to sit back and listen to some music in a quiet place, ideally with headphones. That way, you can focus on one thing and forget about everything else.

10. Spend time with your loved ones

Get involved with your loved ones and listen to their problems. This will put your own problems into perspective!

Editor's opinion: Freeing yourself from psychological chains isn’t easy

Trying to suppress our natural worrisome traits is ironically encouraging us to pressure ourselves into not pressuring ourselves! Those who struggle with this concept often have a tendency to hyper control things in their lives. They believe that everything results from their actions, and that micromanaging is therefore essential. The parental and educational model obviously plays an important role in our ability to escape our demons. When trying to free your mental load, it’s important to keep in mind that letting go is not an objective in itself, but a key to fulfillment, a means to return to a balance.

🤗 Understand yourself, accept yourself, be happy... Let’s do it here and now!

The Unbearable Habit Of Cutting People Off, Let’s Put A Stop To It!

If there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s getting cut off when I’m talking. I get the impression that what I’m saying is of no importance to the person in front of me. So yes, maybe the person we’re talking to is afraid of forgetting their train of thought and rushes the words out of their mouth, but still. The icing on the cake? It’s when there’s no excuse and it happens all the time. What an unbearable habit cutting people off is!

Friendship Test: How Well Do You Know Your Friends?

One day I learned that one in two friendships wasn’t reciprocal. This figure is quite disturbing, but in the end, it’s not that surprising. When you become an adult, your priorities change, and sometimes you drift apart or make new friends... and forget others! To find out where you stand with your friendships or to get to know each other better, there’s a very effective method: 50 questions to get to know each other by heart and (re)connect.

How Can We Identify Repetitive Patterns And Get Out Of Them?

For a long time, I had the feeling that I was repeating the same mistakes. For example, on more than one occasion, I missed out on a career opportunity. All because I was convinced I was useless… Unfortunately, I bet I’m not the only one to have observed this kind of repetitive pattern. This kind of cycle is vicious, so how do you identify it and get out of it? Now that I’ve learned how to work on it, I’ll explain.

Is Not Giving A Damn The Secret To Happiness? Really?

I often get told to take things less to heart. I admit that as a hypersensitive person, I put my heart and soul into everything. Perhaps a little too much because that tends to generate anxiety. So in the end, is not giving a damn about anything the secret to happiness? Well, I’ve tried to delve into the subject with my research, and it’s not quite as simple as that. Here are some explanations.

Forbidden Love Story

“Deny thy father and refuse thy name; or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Montague.” I think everyone’s guessed where this quote comes from! It is, of course, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. I’ve always loved this story of forbidden love, and I’m not the only one because this play has stood the test of time. On the other hand, I find it much less enjoyable to experience forbidden love. You don’t know whether it’s better to give up on it or get burnt... I’ll tell you all about it.

I Hate Having My Photo Taken, But Why?

One of my hobbies is photography. You’d think then that I’d be very comfortable in front of the camera, but no! The reason I do photography is to get behind the camera and take photos of other people. Ok, I sometimes take self-portraits, but as soon as someone else takes my photo, I hate it. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way, which is why I’ve decided to talk to you about it today.

Our February Challenge: The Month Of Self-Love And Pampering

When we think of February, do we think... icy feet 😬? Okay, it's not particularly known for that (even though it's true). No, when we think of February, Valentine's Day comes to mind. However, this celebration feels too commercial, putting pressure on couples and making singles feel guilty about being solo. So, instead, we thought we could create a little self-care challenge for you.
