Always Feeling Down? Here’s How You Can Fix Your External By Focusing On The Internal

Every day, all of us face different battles in our lives. Some battles are huge, and some are small. Other challenges have to do with matters like money and traffic, and some involve loss and heartache. All these struggles usually lead to stress, anxiety, and depression. They can also be very stressful and frightening. More often than not, they leave us feeling drained as well.

All of us are a victim of something external that is making things difficult for us and potentially bringing us down, which keeps them from being overcome. While adjusting our perspectives and focusing on figuring out how we can change our outside world, we lose energy, add more stress, and feel less efficient. But although it is difficult to change the outside world, it is rather simple to focus on feelings inside of us and change things for the better. Read on to better understand how you can accomplish this feat.


Is your identity withholding you?

Are you trying to get rid of failures? You might think that you are not wealthy enough, you are not intelligent enough, on top of all other thoughts of pity and helplessness. Maybe the main problem is not about whether or not you’re sufficient enough.

If you step back, you will realize that you are making yourself believe all these negative things, and this is why nothing will ever be enough for you. The only way to get past this pity party is if you try to truly see yourself and your identity from your current standpoint and work from there.

Depression and anxiety

The modern world is suffering from the menace of depression and anxiety, address these issues before trying to change the outside world. If you are not satisfied internally, how can you fix the outside world? Make progress inside of you before working on the outside.

One of the most reliable ways to keep your mental health away from the grasp of anxiety and depression is to always check-in with what you are feeling. Oftentimes, we are already in a deep well of gloom before we even recognize that we’ve been struggling.


Healthy living

Exercising, eating healthy foods, and sleeping at the right time and the right place can serve the mind in more ways than you can imagine. These ingredients make life a delicious dish, and altogether, it can give us a sense of fulfillment in our lives. If one follows these patterns of taking care of their health, waves of joy can ultimately flow from within.


If you want to alter your surroundings, you must accept yourself and others around you for who they are and how they behave. At the end of the day, acceptance can go a long way. It’s hard to change the world, but the good news is that you can always control how you react to the circumstances around you. A better life means acceptance, a healthy lifestyle, and contentment.
