How to face change and have a positive attitude in uncertain times

We need to keep an open, positive, and receptive mind to new ideas or new changes since there is an accelerated development in our daily life and evolution of technology. We should not ignore or resist any important change. So, how do we keep a positive attitude in uncertain times?

The post today will take us through some methods to help ground ourselves and let go of the anger, pain and suffering caused by the recent developments.

Change needs a bit more effort; it means getting out of the comfort zone and overcoming the inertia that prevails with the adapted ways of thinking and doing.

If you have a positive attitude towards change, you can look at them as opportunities, you also have the greatest disposition to face them because it will be visualised as a new adventure.

The opposite occurs when you take change with a negative attitude since you understand it as a threat, you act in panic, and it is even easier to find ways to combat it. So, feeling stimulated instead of restless before a change helps its development as a challenge and not as a threat.

So, what are the benefits of having a positive attitude in uncertain times?

Dispels anger and improves mood

Anger lowers the spirit. So much energy is expended in being angry that one will actually feel exhausted and discouraged. Fortunately, there is an effective method to correct this condition. Just breathe.

Inhalation increases energy, instinctively it is the first thing we do before an effort, and exhalation relaxes, preparing for rest. When we want to control anger, exhale strongly to release all the pressure within you.

The principle is remarkably simple: release the air as soon as you feel the anger come over you, and do it with force, emptying your lungs.

When the pressure inside you begins to build, you know how the outburst of anger begins… At that precise moment, do a strong and long expulsion of air. Completely empty your lungs.

Do not breathe in until your own body does. That is, it is not a matter of exhaling and then “making” an inhalation, but of voluntarily exhaling and then spontaneously allowing the body to inhale, when needed.

After the inhalation is done, take another strong exhalation that empties your lungs. Wait again for your body to inhale spontaneously.

Repeat the process a few more times, exhaling heavily and emptying your lungs, until you see that the pressure has decreased, and you feel calmer.

With that new sense of calm, remember that “things are the colour of the glass with which you see them.” When we are calm, things look different.
