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

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!

What Exactly Does It Mean To Be An Extrovert?

I wish I could say loud and clear that I’m an extrovert, but not at all. I belong to the opposite team, the team of introverts. However, even though we don’t operate in the same way, that doesn’t prevent me from being surrounded by extroverts. I myself have a few moments when my introversion gives way to my extroversion, when I feel good, surrounded by a few people that I know well. So how does extroversion work? How is it different? What can you do to get on well with an extrovert? Let me explain.

Everything You Need To Know About Hyper-Empathy

Sometimes you’re devastated by your best friend’s break-up, sometimes you’re euphoric about your sister’s pregnancy... Sometimes it feels like other people’s emotions are invading you, so much so that you feel like you’re experiencing what they’re going through like it’s your own life. Have you ever felt this way? Maybe you’re affected by hyper-empathy, a characteristic not dissimilar to hypersensitivity. But what exactly is it? How do you distinguish between the two? And above all, how do you know if you’re hyper-empathetic? Let me explain.

Why Do Narcissists Stare?

Narcissists have a reputation for being amongst the most manipulative people out there, and rightly so! The truth is, these people are so good at the evil things they do because they operate under the radar and use covert methods to exercise their depraved missions. Now, one of the biggest and seemingly most unsuspecting techniques they use to manipulate and control their victims is staring. You're no doubt a little dubious about a stare being an effective tool in the art of manipulation, but it's true, a void and menacing look is one of the most intimidating and unnerving gestures that these folks turn to.

8 Reasons Why All Narcissists Are Hypocrites

If you know anything about narcissists, you'll surely be aware that they are extremely overly judgmental and critical, especially towards other people. Their faultfinding stems from their perception of ultimate superiority, and therefore legitimizes them in holding people to intimidatingly high standards. However, although they may believe they are pretty much perfect, the reality couldn't be any more different, yet they are slightly more forgiving with themselves. That's right, they are huge hypocrites and go from one extreme to another in a split second. Here we discuss the reasons behind their hypocritical behavior.

Are Narcissists Born Or Made? - Let's Settle The Debate

There you have it, the nature vs nurture debate is back, only this time I want to focus it on those deviously manipulative personalities we refer to as narcissists. Now, evidently these folks get bad press and rightly so because they are often at the root of plenty of harm, but is it really their fault? Can they really be blamed for their terrifying and perhaps inherent traits, or are they simply just products and in this case victims of their environments? Let’s settle this debate once and for all and figure out how and when this disorder becomes apparent. So, are you born a narcissist or is it developed?

Why Do I Feel Bad When People Don’t Message Me Back?

Friday night rolls around and after a hard week you were expecting to have a drink with a girlfriend, but she seems to have left you hanging on read... To make matters worse (and the humiliation?) you even saw the little typing sign appear, yet you never received a reply. Well, if that’s the case, obviously you or your "how about a drink tonight?" didn’t deserve an answer. Let’s take a look at why some people don't reply to messages, and why when someone doesn't reply to your text, this makes us feel so bad.

How Does A Narcissist React When They Can’t Control You?

You probably know by now that narcissists only ever look for one thing and one thing only; and that’s control! Whether in their personal or professional life, folks with this personality disorder need to be in the driving seat and the one calling the shots, otherwise all hell breaks loose. Although their cunning and manipulative nature means they are often hard to escape, it is still possible to turn the tables on them and take the upper hand. Yet, you’ll need a thick skin to do so because when they feel their power slipping away, they become even more dangerous and abusive; here’s how they react when that happens.

How To Get Revenge On A Narcissist?

Narcissistic abuse is one of the most horrific challenges anyone can ever go through in life, but that’s not to say that their reign of terror will last forever. Evidently, breaking the cycle of abuse isn’t exactly straightforward, however, once the discard phase has been activated and victims realize that they can walk away with their heads held high, the revenge phase can commence. Unsurprisingly, getting even with a raging egocentric narcissist needs to be carefully planned, but ironically, their self-centered personalities expose to many axes of revenge, which will evidently really get to them…

How Do Narcissists Behave Sexually?

As with many things in life, narcissists also have unhealthy relationships with sex and treat it as nothing more than a self-gratifying activity. After all, manipulation, control, and emotional abuse are their so-called trusty weapons that they hide behind in most circumstances, so why wouldn’t they call on them in the bedroom too? The bottom line is people with this personality disorder are used to getting what they want and will only ever put themselves and their pleasure first, which doesn’t bode well for a healthy sex life. Discover how they behave in the bedroom and what you should do if you are involved with one.
