It's been my mantra on dark days, "This too shall pass".
I already know the advantages of keeping positive, I just need more mental and emotional practice.
But maybe, these tips can help as well:
Knock out your concerns by writing them down (along with potential solutions).
Talk them out with people you love. Work on decisive plans of action for worries that won't go away.
Settle your mind with activities like walking or lifting weights. It won't take long -- recent research suggests that as little as 8 weeks of yoga can drop your anxiety level.
• Bonus: Kicking worries to the curb drives up your motivation and concentration, too.
And maybe, giving myself star rubber stamps when I get to the top. Haha.
