Have you ever experienced challenges in your life, those times when you felt lost and had no idea how to keep moving forward? We are all faced with life challenges constantly in every area of our lives. Most people have a hard time accepting and dealing with these challenges that arise and most of us try to run away from the challenges, perhaps they are in a relationship or a business or maybe even a life and death situation. The reality is that at some point in life, we all go through struggle and running away from the problem is the worst thing to do! We have the power to build an unstoppable mindset. So, how would you like to develop a mindset that could help you in overcoming life challenges with anything that comes your way? Here are few tips ready for you to adopt.

Don’t overreact PLEASE!

life challenges

When we are not in a state of mind where we fall for our emotions and give power to them, we often make decisions that we will regret later. Overreacting to a problem will cause you to make bad decisions, you have to understand that not everything is going to be the way you want it to be. Many people will try to change someone or something that they cannot control, and when it doesn’t work out for them, they feel miserable. Next time you are faced with life challenges, become the watcher of your thoughts and stay calm so you can make smarter decisions.

Don’t compare your lifestyle with others

life challenges

I know it is really difficult not to compare ourselves with other people, however, the more often we do that, the more frustrated we will feel. There are many people who may have accomplished more than you and many of your colleagues might have reached success even before you could. But this is not something to be disappointed in, rather take it as a push and the key thing to remember is that you create your own story and success in life. Many life challenges will come and pass by but you have to train your mind to be at peace at all times and never think low of yourself when you see others achieving more than you.

Avoid dwelling on your problems

life challenges

Often what wears us down most is not the actual problem, but the constant thinking about it. We spend days and nights often thinking about the issue and we are consumed by the problem so much that we almost forget to do something about it. Have a time set as to when to think about your life challenges and when to act upon solving them. In addition, have a set time when you express your pain, either to God, a friend, family member, therapist or in your journal. The rest of the practice how to really get a solution to your challenges.

Make a game plan

life challenges

If you have no idea how you will overcome the challenge, make a game plan, how simple is that! Try to get outside input from those you respect or those who have the potential to bring positive change in your life. Include in your game plan ways you will use the life challenges as a catalyst for growth, to become a better person than before. Periodically review your plan to see if it is working or if you have to make changes and at which point you need to make changes. Set some goals and make sure that the goal is measurable so you can monitor your progress on a regular basis. Even if you have no idea how you will overcome the challenge, be optimistic about it & things will work out. Anything is possible! 

How to Turn Procrastination into Motivation

Embrace fear

life challenges

Do you have a fear of something? Something as small as talking to someone you are avoiding for days or as big as speaking in front of a crowd. Let the fear become a positive energy for you that move you forward only. Always tell yourself that, you are bold. You are capable. You are brave. Write it out; burn words in a bowl; see the person you know will lift you. Don’t hold onto fear. Facing life challenges with fear will take you nowhere unless you accept the fear and make it your strength. Eventually you will come to realize that the fears that you had in life are in fact, mere phobias which you can overcome easily.

Improve on yesterday

life challenges

Do something that will make your today better than what’s come before. Do you feel you missed out onto something? What is it? Can you do something about it? Yes? Do it! Once you have figured out on what needs to be changed, insert all your energy into it and you will continue to develop it further. Try to be positive towards your life challenges and try to have a positive communication with others as it does lead to progress.

Turn towards reality

life challenges

We are masters of avoidance! So often we turn away from life rather than towards it. But if we want to enjoy our present and be more effective in it, we must orient ourselves toward facing reality. When we are guided by the reality principle, we develop a deeper capacity to deal with realityWhat once was difficult to achieve will now become a piece of cake! What once was our fear now becomes familiar to us and life becomes more manageable. Once you build the habit of facing life challenges being in the state of reality, you will see that you have grown more stronger and have greater confidence in yourself.

Don’t give up (Life challenges)

life challenges

You might stumble but know that you’ll be okay as long as you learn, act, and remember that you already have all that you need. Recognize what you’re doing well, instead of dwelling on what you wish you did better. A lot of people may think that they haven’t “reached” the place where they need to be yet, but all you need is to be patient and don’t give up on yourself. That is the worst thing you would do to yourself! We all feel desperate and exhausted some time but know it’s going to be better and your present experience will ultimately enrich your life.View yourself as other positive people view you. Live in the now!

Here Are 13 False Pregnancy Myths to Help All Mothers-to-Be

There are many myths and misconceptions attached to pregnancy. Here are some of the most commonly believed in myths and reasons why they are not true:

1. Wide Hips Can Make Childbirth Easier:

When people talk about wide hips in the context of childbirth they are usually referring to a wider ilium. However, the distance between the iliac crests and the size of the birth canal are totally unrelated. During childbirth, it is the hole in the middle of the pelvic bone that counts and it can be big or small irrelevant of the size of the hips.

2. The Size And Shape Of The Belly Can Tell Whether It’s A Boy Or A Girl:

Most people try to guess the gender of the baby by looking at the shape of a pregnant woman’s belly. Although it will make things quite easier if it were true but it is not. The size and shape of the belly are affected by the size of the fetus and its position in the womb.

3. Frequent Ultrasounds Are Unsafe For The Baby:

There is no scientific backing to the myth that getting an ultrasound could harm a mother or her unborn child. People often confuse ultrasound with radiation. Ultrasound is just high-frequency sound waves which produce an image on the screen after bouncing off of the fetus and are safe.

4. It’s Bad For The Baby To Lie On Your Stomach:

The baby is well protected inside the muscular uterus and lying on the stomach would not harm it, as long as it feels comfortable.

5. Running While Pregnant Is Bad:Image result for pregnant woman running shutterstock

Becoming pregnant does not mean you should give up running. As long as you have a safe pregnancy and your doctor gives you a go ahead, it is completely fine for you to continue running.

6. Morning Sickness Only Happens In The Morning And During The First Trimester:Image result for morning sickness shutterstock

Majority of the pregnant women suffering from nausea but only a small percentage of it suffer it in the morning. It can be an all day thing and while for most women it does end after the first trimester for some it can go on until the time of delivery.

7. Lifting Your Arms Above Your Head Could Strangle The Baby:Image result

Lifting your arms around your head cannot cause the umbilical cord to wrap around your baby’s neck. In fact, none of your movements can have an effect on the position of the umbilical cord and a lot of babies are born with the umbilical cord wound around their neck and is easily removed by the doctor.

8. You Would Have To Get Rid Of Your Cat:

Cats can be the carrier of a rare birth defect causing disease called toxoplasmosis. However, this does not mean you have to say goodbye to your pet as soon as you get pregnant. It is recommended to avoid cleaning the litter box and if you do not have anyone to do it for you wear gloves while doing it and immediately wash your hands afterwards.

9. Pregnancy Is The Best Time Of The Life For All Women:

The general conception goes round that being pregnant is the happiest time in a woman’s life. In reality, many pregnant can feel stressed, afraid and general feelings of unhappiness. A small percentage of women even suffer from symptoms of depression. This can happen due to the changing hormones in a woman’s body which ultimately affect the brain and mood center. If a woman experiences depressive symptoms it should be treated as it can have adverse effects on the health of the mother and baby.

10. It Is Okay To Drink Once In A While:

When you drink alcohol while pregnant, so does your baby as it can pass freely through the placenta. This can increase the baby being born with some physical or mental birth defect. While it is hard to determine the safe amount of alcohol that can be consumed without harming the baby it is best to stay away from alcohol altogether during the course of pregnancy.

11. You Lose All Your Pregnancy Weight During The Delivery:

The extra pregnancy weight gain is due to the amalgamation of the weight of the baby, placenta, breasts, the increased volumes of blood and body fluid in the body and some extra fat. While the weight of the baby, placenta and amniotic fluid is immediately lost after the delivery, it takes a couple of weeks to lose the weight gained by fluid and also fat depending on how much you gained.

12. A C-section Is The Easy Way Out:Image result

When it comes to delivery there is no easy way out. Many pregnant women believe that a C-section is the less painful and safer way of delivery. However, in reality, a c section could be pretty painful as well the only difference is you feel the pain after the baby had been born, unlike the vaginal birth. It can also pose complications later and is only recommended by doctors when the benefits outweigh the dangers.

13. The Fetus Is Unaffected By The Outside Events:

For a long time, it was believed that babies are born oblivious to their outside environment. In truth, babies can hear sounds and recognize their mother’s voice while inside the womb. They are also able to detect light and taste the food by licking the placental wall.
