How To Destress Yourself With Hope

How to destress yourself with hope is what I wanna ramble about this day.

Hello my lovely, lovely friend. How are you doing this fine day? If you are in the United States, then you know that it is the day after tax day. Did you get your taxes done on time? I hope you got a ton of money back, and that you are spending it on what you want because you deserve it.

Before I start my ramble about how to destress yourself with hope, I would love to articulate what hope is, in my mind. To me, hope is the desire, and vision with a little anticipation, and expectation that one has for a better life, and/or maybe even a vision for a magnificent life. That's it, the desire, and vision with a little anticipation, and expectation for more.

Do you have hope?

Do you have a vision for a magnificent life?

Do you want more than what you have now?

Do you have a dream for your life?

If you answered yes to all of the questions above, you definitely have hope.

So how does one destress with this hope that they have? Excellent question my friend.

In order to destress yourself with hope, you must sustain it.

So how does one sustain hope? Another excellent question, and the answer is so very easy.

If you would like to sustain and even turn your hope into inspiration, and motivation, you gotta do the work.  This work I speak of is so very simple, and I will delineate it for you.

First, imagine yourself in what you would describe to be the perfect life; where you would be, what you would look like, what you would be doing, who you would be with, and what you would be wearing. After you let your imagination run wild, create a snap shot picture in your mind of you in that life, and imagine it often. If you imagine yourself in what you want, it will help you to remember what you are moving towards in your life, it will give you inspiration, and it will spark your motivation as well.

Second, capture your vision by writing down exactly how your life would be if it was absolutely perfect. Actually, you don't even have to write it down but studies show that if we write things down, chances of the thing happening are 50% greater than if we don't write it down.

Third, think of one thing a day that you can do to obtain this perfect life, and then do it. If we do one thing a day towards our perfect life, we will be that much closer than if we didn't do anything at all. It is up to you to shape the rest of your life, and so you can ask yourself, will you be the same person in 5, 10, or even 15 years, or will you be closer to your vision in 5, 10, or even 15 years?

If you do these three things, I promise you that you will destress yourself with hope, motivation, and inspiration.

Wait! There is more. If we begin to regulate imagining ourselves, and acting towards our desires we create habits in the mind, and in action, then they become addictions. What I mean by addictions is it becomes a behavior that we cannot stop, which is absolutely the kind of addiction you want to have. Could you imagine being addicted to moving towards your perfect life? There would be no stopping you, and what a flawless addiction to have, wouldn't you agree?

There you have it! My ramble on how to destress yourself with hope. Try the exercises above, for at least one to three months, and just watch yourself relieve your stress. You will feel amazing just by focusing on what you could, should, and would have instead of what you don't.

Don't believe me? That is perfect! Don't believe me, try it and see for yourself.

Have a super duper allie ooper day my friend, love you so much.
