Yes, being on stage made Michael Jackson feel alive. And his love of dancing and singing – obvious to anyone who saw him perform – thrilled his fans. In efforts to savor the memories, fans worldwide have bought more than 9 million of Michael Jackson’s albums since his death.
Try to think about what makes you feel alive – especially if you or loved ones are struggling emotionally at this time. Implement some of these ideas and see if they help:
Honor your body by noticing what makes you feel better, both physically and emotionally. Pay attention to your exercise routine, what you eat, your sleeping habits and what gives you pleasure. Reduce the situations that cause stress and increase the ones that make you feel healthier and more alive. Spend time relaxing and rejuvenating as you counteract burnout. Attend to your mind and your spirit – set aside quiet time to practice your own form of meditation.
Implement what you know about resiliency. Recognize how your character strengths support what you do. Integrate your values and ideals into how you view the world. Knowledge is power, so use it to your advantage. Gather information about ways to deal with how you are feeling – explore Internet search engines or the self-help section of bookstores. Release tension through laughter and watch yourself begin to bounce back.
