The past few days I have spent time every morning reading uplifting and inspiring quotes. A habit I will hold on to and definitely recommend for you guys! It sets the mood for the rest of the day and can help you go through tricky situations!
1. The people surrounding you. Like I mentioned in the paragraph above the people that you are surrounded with are so important. Make sure your friends, family or partner are with you or whoever feels like a good mentor. Let them know that you haven't tried it before and that you have no idea how to do the task. This way they know you are a bit nervous and can mentor you through it.
2. Try things that you are interested in doing. Don't begin by pushing you to do things you don't even care about. Try something simple, something without extra equipment. Do you want to learn how to do a headstand? Ask your friend/partner to catch you and try! Do you want to draw or paint more? Bring out paper and colour and slab something on, try copying a picture from google. Don't PUSH yourself, just DO!
3. Have fun! Even if trying new things can feel so scary, try to have some fun with it. Just because it feels scary to take a step out of your comfort zone doesn't mean it will be. Laugh! It is okay not to know how to do something! It is okay if it gets wrong the first time, or the second, or the third! Loosen up! Laugh! It went like shit but you have tried it! Now you just need to do it again and again and again! Often the first try is the worst. Sometimes it can feel so silly. You were so nervous your heart was about to shoot out through your body, only to realize that it was pretty fun. Allow yourself to learn! Take help from people, ask them how to. Ask them again!
