It’s not natural to feel “up” all the time, and normal to feel down sometimes. When you’re a bit down and want to feel better, self-coach yourself up by taking a moment to contemplate where you are holding an unrealistic expectation.
Maybe you have expectations of how life should be, or how others should act or treat you. Perhaps you are focused so much on what’s not right without taking into consideration the bigger picture of how the situation is serving you or benefiting you.
Take a moment to activate a new feeling by asking yourself if your expectations need to be readjusted. By accepting everything as it is, happiness has space to emerge.
