Recovering from an illness, injury, or traumatic life event can affect us deeply and in many ways. We can choose to allow these events to get us closer to the best version of ourselves. Or, we can let them rob our very essence and soul from us. It really boils down to attitude and focus. One of the markers of maturity is realizing that you’re responsible for everything that comes your way, and even if you’re not, you’re responsible for how you react to it. If you want to heal from trauma, taking full responsibility for yourself is key. I have always found the following 3 things to be highly effective at setting things in order in my life after pain and trauma.
Highly Effective Ways To Heal From Trauma #1: Exercise
Human beings are wired to handle challenging physical effort. This is true for normal, uneventful times as it is for times of trouble and challenge. Although we do need to rest after all forms of trauma, there is a time to get moving again. Simply walking, swimming, or stretching can help not only with physical trauma but emotional. Yoga might also be a brilliant option if you’ve neglected your body. It helps you stretch out, increase your cardiovascular ability as well as serve as a method of keeping you present.
Highly Effective Ways To Heal From Trauma #2: Focus
What do you want your life to look like after you heal? The clearer you can make this vision the faster and more efficiently it will come to pass. It’s interesting how easy and comfortable a mind can become. As humans, we often want to follow the path of least resistance and choose what is comfortable. However, this may not be what we really want deep down. Being shaken up by life circumstances often gives us the opportunity to view our lives from a different perspective. It’s best to focus on a goal, and no matter what this is, you’ll find that your health and routine will adapt. Focus is a life anchor that keeps you from drifting too far from your true desires and dreams.
Highly Effective Ways To Heal From Trauma #3: Law of Attraction
The law of attraction is an amazing spiritual tool that is gaining popularity in new-age circles and beyond. Put simply, the law of attraction is a method of intention that connects you to your desires. It is believed that by emotionally focusing on what you want, it naturally is attracted to you. This can be used in a way that best promotes your ideal life coming to you more easily. No matter what you rationally think about this, the power of belief is strong. I encourage you to research the principles for yourself. Check out Self Development Secrets for a clearer and more instructive explanation.
No matter who you are or where you come from, I do believe that all of us can more healthfully heal from our wounds with some practice. Self-love and care is ultimately the most crucial factor in any type of life change and healing. Life isn’t easy, so arming yourself with these tools can help squeeze the most enjoyment out of the difficult times.
