Bismillahir rahmanir raheem
Everyone has a breaking point whether welike to accept it or not but you don’t have to go over the edge. Yes, it’s a good feeling to blow off steam every now and again but making a habit of it can be more detrimental than good.
For Motivational Monday, here are some tips and tricks for you to try out the next time you feel like you’re going to blow your top inshaAllah!
TAKE A DEEP BREATHE
Inhale, exhale. One of the best things you can do when you feel you’re at breaking point is to stop and take a breathe. A long deep one, the kind that really fills your lungs. When you exhale, relax your body. Let the negative energy release from you as you exhale as if your body is squeezing out all of the tension. This works wonders for me, especially when I’m having a bad day.
CHANGE YOUR LOCATION
If possible try to change your location. Move to another room or go for a walk. Fresh air and a change of scenery can do wonders for the mind especially if you have the benefit of living next to a nice green space.
TALK TO ALLAH – MAKE DUA
This is something all the Messengers of Allah (may peace be upon them all) did when times got rough and what better examples do we have?
He who draws close to Me a hand’s span, I will draw close to him an arm’s length. And whoever draws near Me an arm’s length, I will draw near him a fathom’s length. And whoever comes to Me walking, I will go to him running – Muslim
Dua is the weapon of the believer. It has the power to change qadr and have sins forgiven subhanAllah so why wouldn’t we want to utilise these tools?
Raise your hands to Allah and make dua to him to forgive you and change your situation to something better. Wallahi, I can say that every time I’ve made sincere dua Allah swt has answered them so I know this works.
Don’t live in the past. As Muslims, we shouldn’t dwell on the past. Even when we make tawbah to Allah swt we are encouraged to move on and hope for the best.
Living in the past is a one way ticket to sadness and even depression. It may not seem possible now but one day it WILL get better, Things will change and improve and you’ll look back on that moment and be grateful it happened the way it did to help you become the person you are.
