Motivation? Quote of the day: You are in Paradise

By Marina Aagaard, MFT

There is so much to be happy about every single day (even in sad times).
Especially Nature, the nature that surrounds us every day;
there is an abundance of life and beauty on our blue planet. 

Tired? Lack of energy? Go out, look up, look down, look around.
Watch nature, watch flora and fauna. Even in the city nature is present.
Experiencing Nature fills you with joy and using your senses trains your brain and raises your energy level.

Some times I think, that Earth is Paradise.
We humans just haven’t figured it out …

    1. You are absolutely right. Life and resulting moods has its ups and downs! And it is not always possible just to think yourself positive, you may need some external help. I recommend very uplifting music (possibly with dancing/body moves as well), some comics or comedies, what ever works!
      Have a happy weekend.

      1. Just now I’m in mid-crisis with my lower back……again! So you can see that staying positive is difficult, the least I can do just now is to look ahead and hope for a better day. Have a happy healthy weekend.

      2. Having experienced low back pain my thoughts go out to you. Think about breathing deeply, relaxation and visualization; intense thinking about healthy back and no pain … do whatever you can physically, keep active as much as possibly, but in back-unstressful ways.
        Happy, healthy weekend to you.

  1. Thank you Marina. This is my 3rd episode this year!!! Doctor is referring me to orthopaedics. But this cycle of episodes needs to be broken somehow and I am struggling to find an solution. Perhaps a personal trainer who is also a physiotherapist!
    Today at least the sun is shining and I can walk around our small garden. Thank goodness for the medication though. However I will try your suggestion of intense visualisation.

    1. Stop having episodes! 😉
      A physioterapist (and trainer) sounds good. You should look for an experienced one, who has special knowledge of back problems AND pain treatment.
      I hope you will get better soon.
