We consider ourselves with the right to live just because we are alive. And there is part of the reason in this, however, if what you want is to live (with capital letters) then it may be that you are missing some guidelines to take into account. It is our mission as parents to teach our children to live and be your best role model. If you follow these guidelines naturally, congratulations! one less thing you have to show your children, but if on the contrary, something fails you, here is a reminder to learn to live.
Nowadays neuroscience is investing a lot of ink in reminding us how our brain works and how we can do things to make our body and mind feel much better and feel united and not separated from each other. Everything has to be connected, because only then can we enjoy those little things that make up a whole that is happiness.
I have allowed myself to make a selection of small things that you can incorporate into your daily routine and that will help you learn to live and, more importantly, teach your children to live.
1. Watch funny movies, funny videos or listen to jokes ... The point is to laugh out loud!
2. Do sports or some physical activity to get your serotonin (hormone of happiness) going.
3. Organize or plan outings, events, meetings, dinners, lunches, meetings with friends or family.
4. Getting excited about a trip, a meeting, getting something ... Find ways to get excited even if you don't travel later, for example, the time you have spent organizing and believing that you were going to do it because in this way your body has been dancing in serotonin.
5. Surprise loved ones, whether they are friends or family ... Or, why not, surprise yourself doing something you never expected to do. Parachute yourself perhaps?
9. Make a thank you journal. Every day write to give thanks.
10. Become aware of your positive emotions. Where do you feel them, how do you feel them, how often ...
11. Stimulates play and fun, surely, you will end up laughing again and you will feel more relaxed and more optimistic.
12. Do your best to tell your stories in a positive way. Focus on what is really important and tell it in a positive way to try, little by little, to strip away your vocabulary and your way of expressing words with a strong negative charge.
13. Share positive experiences. It will be a very healthy exercise for your brain to start thinking in a positive way and, also, to see the great effect it has on you and those around you.
14. Eliminate toxic people and things from your life: fix what you have messy (maybe that picture badly hung on the wall of the living room or that curtain that brings you bad memories) and put limits on those people who invade your time, space and person.
15. Watch your language. Of course you can tell things that have not turned out as you expected or that cause you pain and you speak from the negative aspects, but try to end the conversation with the learning that that experience or situation has provided you.
16. Be kind to others and of course to yourself, because remember that learning to live is learning to love yourself.
