Clinical Psychologist İhsan Öztekin made recommendations for psychological well-being in the upcoming new year. Öztekin said: “As long as you can spend the new year hand in hand and shoulder to shoulder with your family, loved ones and friends you trust, you will see that there is no difficulty that you cannot overcome, no problem that you cannot solve.” He listed his recommendations as follows:
1. LOVE PEOPLE BUT DON’T FORGET TO LOVE YOURSELF FIRST
love life. Love and value people. But love yourself too and know your own worth. Nothing is more important or more valuable than you. A person who values himself is a person who is cared for by everyone with his self-confidence and self-worth.
2. DON’T IGNORE YOUR REQUESTS
Live your life not to prove yourself to people and show your worth, but to be happy. A person who can make himself happy is a person who can be happy in his environment and relationships. This life is yours. Any important decisions you make should be your own. It should be your wishes, your goals, your expectations and your dreams.
3. KNOW HOW TO SAY NO, LEFT THE Flock IF NEEDED!
Know how to say no. Have a strong personality and a firm stance towards life. Develop your own style, have different ideas. Don’t be one of the flock.
4. DON’T FULFILL YOUR EMOTIONS
Don’t live your feelings inside, share them. Emotions are also an extension of thoughts. Joy, anger, fear, sadness, joy. If you put it inside you, you will become a prisoner of your emotions. Live, express and feel your emotions.
5. DON’T PRIZE YOURSELF TO LONELY
If your ability to be alone is weak, strengthen it, but do not be alone all the time. Experience the happiness of being with your loved ones, people who give you peace, being able to do something together and sharing.
6. HOBBY OR BUSINESS, BE MANUFACTURING!
Do not be idle, work and produce as much as you can. There are hundreds of activities that are enjoyable and that you can enjoy doing. Decide and get started.
7. DON’T LEAVE, DON’T DELAY
Don’t delay. Don’t leave things for later. The longer you procrastinate, the more it becomes a habit, and the more you do, the harder it is to cope.
8. DON’T START FROM NATURE
Do not break your relationship with nature. Get out of the house. Take walks in open areas. Organize activities with your loved ones. If you have a garden, increase your bond with the soil.
9. HELP PEOPLE, SUPPORT
Be helpful. The financial and moral support you provide will make you feel better. Call older people and ask for their memories, visit them whenever you can. You will feel happier.
9. BACK YOUR ADDICTIONS
If you have addictions, let them go. Get expert support if you can’t quit. Don’t fall into the virtual world trap. Build live, one-on-one relationships in real life. Expand and strengthen your direct face-to-face relationships, starting with your family.
11. BE CURIOUS
Be curious. Become an observer. Become an explorer. Go to different environments, observe. Experience the blissful surprise of just noticing.
12. MAKE TIME FOR SPORTS
Take time to exercise. You will feel your energy and self-confidence increase.
13. SMILE MORE
Smile more. With smiling, the brain releases the hormone of happiness. The most natural and easy way to happiness. By smiling, you send positive energy to other people.
14. SET SERIOUS AWAY, DON’T LOOK AT THE PAST
Don’t take anything too seriously in life. Don’t get stuck in the past. Let it go. Don’t care. Laugh away. Make fun of yourself, people, events. Remember that things you take too seriously can become obsessions.
15. TAKE CARE OF YOUR SLEEP AND WHAT YOU EAT
Your sleeping and eating habits should be adequate and regular, not more or less. Pay attention to the balance of sleep and food for a healthy life.
