Friendsgiving, Women & Bourbon

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Our relationships, health, finances, and work-life are some of the causes of stress that eventually lead to a dip in spirit. Feeling down can be inevitable as a result of these. This is not a joyful experience or something anyone should/ would want to brag about. Nevertheless, it is our reality and it is a feeling that affects even the most cheerful persons. Well, it is not all doom and gloom. There is a way out. Here are 3 practical ways to uplift your spirit and find the real joy that refreshes your soul. 

  • Holidays

Holidays present the perfect platform to break your routine schedule and monotony. Your spirit and sense of self can be easily dampened by your work cycle in the absence of a break. All you need to break out from your daily rat wheel is to get a restorative and truly energizing holiday from work. Apart from lifting your spirits up and healing, your business will be put in the right place- under control.

  • Reading and Listening

Uplifting yourself can be greatly aided through reading and listening. Reading or hearing others speak about their similar experiences, and how they got out of it will put you on the track to upliftment. Listening is similar to reading. Still, you have to make efforts to listen to others. If you do not get positive vibes from the people around you, step out. You can also search for upbuilding podcasts and books online of people who have experienced your ordeal and how they handled it.

  • Remember

Sometimes, all you need to remember is that life is made up of ups and downs. Realizing that things will not be smooth at all times will help you keep a balanced mindset. You will be able to accept and embrace certain conditions. This will put you in a great position to seek out solutions to the issues you are facing.

Things will not always be rosy, so having a dip in spirit can arise occasionally. What really matters is how you get yourself back up, heal and continue pushing forward. Your life will be meaningful and worth living when you do so.
