Healthy Tips to Help You Through Challenging Times

By Genevieve Cunningham

Everyone goes through challenging times in life. Maybe it's a breakup, job loss, or health struggles. Maybe it's a bout of depression or the loss of a loved one. We all go through numerous challenging times, and we simply have to navigate our way through them the best that we can. But wouldn't it be easier if there were instructions? If there were tips for getting through it and finding a bit of peace and happiness again? Though each situation is different, there are some universal habits that can help us navigate through hard times. If you need a push in the right direction, take a look at these healthy tips to help you starting today.

Get Outside for Exercise

When you're going through a hard time, both movement and nature are healing to the soul.  So why not combine them? Find an outdoor exercise that can help you move your body and relax at the same time. Maybe a walk, a jog, or even a quick yoga session. Or maybe it's a good time to take up hiking or cycling. The endorphins we get from exercise and the peace we get from nature give us a double whammy for mental and physical health and can help us navigate through hard times in our lives. 

Get Focused on Yourself

If you're going through a hard time, it's a great chance to get focused on bettering yourself. It might be a good time to pick up a new hobby or learn a new skill. Or maybe it's time to just do a few enjoyable things for yourself, whatever that may be. The more you focus on yourself, the more self-confidence you can build. And as your confidence grows you can more easily manage the tough times in a way that improves your health and life in the long run. 

Look at the Big Picture

It's always important to remember the big picture. When things go wrong, it's so easy to focus on it. To get wrapped up in this one moment and to forget that it's going to pass. The hard times do pass. And eventually, things get better. When you're having a tough time, don't forget about the bigger picture. Count your blessing, remember that this will pass, and try to go through the tough time head first with compassion for yourself and your eye on the much larger picture of your life.

When life gets tough, our health can suffer in big ways. We may find that fatigue sets in, pain takes over, or that we just have a hard time navigating through daily life. But we can make it through these hard times with our health intact. Use these tips to help you through the challenging moments of life with better health and happiness on the other side.
