    Stop Living in the Past

    There's light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t get stuck in the middle but move towards the light. Look around you for all the blessings and things you are lucky to have in your life. Try to make every day brighter than yesterday. Past is only a baggage pulling you back. (Image source:Gettyimages.in)

    Find Yourself

    Shut down your mind and take a long weekend off. Your brain needs time to get to the energetic level again and drain all that inside it. The less you keep in your brain, the more you will be able to pull yourself back. (Image source:Gettyimages.in)

    Do what you Love

    May be the answer to all your questions is in allowing yourself to do what you love. Make a to-do list, or recall the one you had made once. The smallest of treats may turn you from the path of self-loath to self-love. ‘Love movies? Watch them.’ ‘Love nature? Go hiking.’ Follow your heart; do what you love to do and do it often.

    Exercise

    Exercise is an excellent way to boost your mood and improve your emotional health. Exercise releases ‘happy hormones’ that reduce stress. It doesn’t have to be ‘at the fitness centre’; you can take a walk, jog or ride a bike. (Image source:Gettyimages.in)
