[rasean_hyligar]: the way we're going to get right
into this week's episode and this week we

[rasean_hyligar]: are going to be talking about life
life and how it is pretty negative and

[rasean_hyligar]: how do we handle that right so
every day life gives you it's not going

[rasean_hyligar]: to be the best of days okay
in fact you probably have had more days

[rasean_hyligar]: than not when you want to do
like the lyrics of the lazy songs and

[rasean_hyligar]: do nothing but just lay in bed
all day right these are the days that

[rasean_hyligar]: you simply just have to push through
and today i'm gonna be giving you five

[rasean_hyligar]: tips on how to push through a
bad slump and get back to in your

[rasean_hyligar]: normal productive self and guess what guys
as promised guess what i got before we

[rasean_hyligar]: get i got the drum roll sounds
i'm so excited i was so excitdiwaso excited

[rasean_hyligar]: ready ready number one drum please

[rasean_hyligar]: drumbrlsoud number one quickly replace negative thoughts
with productive ones let me now o ike

[rasean_hyligar]: that drum sound let me know let
me know i'm super pond for it i

[rasean_hyligar]: really like it so someone named an
s in once said that we don't see

[rasean_hyligar]: things as they are we see them
as we are okay let me say that

[rasean_hyligar]: one more time we don't see things
as they are we see things as we

[rasean_hyligar]: are so it's a matter of perspective
right so whatever is internal is eventually going

[rasean_hyligar]: materialize into something external so before it
gets to that stage you need to replace

[rasean_hyligar]: your thoughts with things that are true
honorable right pure lovely and admirable and think

[rasean_hyligar]: of things that are excellet and worthy
of praise if you know that reference drop

[rasean_hyligar]: it down in the comments or leave
me a dem if you think you know

[rasean_hyligar]: where that reference is from not going
to say where but if you think you

[rasean_hyligar]: know where it is let me know
thinking that thoughts are not going to benefit

[rasean_hyligar]: you any okay nata zilchzero nata how
many times have you thought of something negative

[rasean_hyligar]: and the situation got better i'll wait
i'm actually not going to wait because i

[rasean_hyligar]: don't want to waste your time like
that but guarantee you it probably hasn't gotten

[rasean_hyligar]: any better right negative thinking does not
benefit you so why do it okay and

[rasean_hyligar]: this leads to our second tip hold
on my drum roll again i'm super excited

[rasean_hyligar]: second tip is oh let's go the
okay focus on the little winds the small

[rasean_hyligar]: victories okay when you have a massive
goal or an obstacle in front of you

[rasean_hyligar]: it's very difficult to think that you
can reach your targets when the goal is

[rasean_hyligar]: so far away take for example losing
twenty pounds i know i bring up fitness

[rasean_hyligar]: a lot of hat because i'm into
the fitness space and i can kind of

[rasean_hyligar]: attest to it a little bit right
so instead of saying you want to lose

[rasean_hyligar]: twenty pounds in a month saying said
that you want to lose one pound of

[rasean_hyligar]: that way when your weight fluctuates which
it will because water weight and homiostasis and

[rasean_hyligar]: all kinds o other things if you
look into how weight loss works you won't

[rasean_hyligar]: be throwing off come week to when
you're only netted like four pound loss right

[rasean_hyligar]: but let's say you had a goal
to lose one pound a week right and

[rasean_hyligar]: we two comes around and you've netted
the same four pound loss you'll see here

[rasean_hyligar]: head of your goal two pounds and
be that much more driven to keep going

[rasean_hyligar]: that didn't make sense rewind that listen
to that again okay this example leads me

[rasean_hyligar]: to my third tip no drum roll
this time you know i'm getting too piped

[rasean_hyligar]: up with that and the third tip
is to exercise so i know we just

[rasean_hyligar]: talked about the exercise example but now
we're going into talking about exercise as the

[rasean_hyligar]: actual tip so without getting too much
into the science behind exercise and why you

[rasean_hyligar]: should size exercise not only keeps you
in good physical shape but it also gives

[rasean_hyligar]: your body a healthy stimulus and it
also releases chemicals in the brain that are

[rasean_hyligar]: proven to decrease anger decrease stress and
overall brighten your mood and not to mention

[rasean_hyligar]: just gives you that kind of feeling
you know what i mean that that good

[rasean_hyligar]: thing after you finish and work out
you feel super energized exactly that same kind

[rasean_hyligar]: of it's exactly what exercising does and
then when i talk about exercise in this

[rasean_hyligar]: manner exercise doesn't have to be anything
intense right even a simple fifteen minute walk

[rasean_hyligar]: outside can be enough to change your
mood and speaking of walking if you are

[rasean_hyligar]: walking you can incorporate this next tip
if you're going for a walk right you

[rasean_hyligar]: see i've flowing all these together i'ebentring
trying trying to help you guys out here

[rasean_hyligar]: right so let say you're going for
your nice walk right and you're just walking

[rasean_hyligar]: down the street walking through the park
walking wherever incorporate this next tip and that

[rasean_hyligar]: is to have gratitude yes have gratitude
let's be honest you've probably heard different people

[rasean_hyligar]: from different places talk about gratitude and
i'm going to sound like a broken record

[rasean_hyligar]: i know i know i'm sorry but
it's true having gratitude and being thankful for

[rasean_hyligar]: the small things really really play a
big role in your overall mood while you're

[rasean_hyligar]: going on that walk that i mentioned
a little while ago look around you right

[rasean_hyligar]: just look around you do you see
trees be thankful for the trees you see

[rasean_hyligar]: the leaves be thankful for the leaves
do you see the sidewalk that you're on

[rasean_hyligar]: be thankful for that sidewalk like i
didn't have to be there you can be

[rasean_hyligar]: walking on a dirt road for all
for who all cares right walking on a

[rasean_hyligar]: dirt road in some crappy old shoes
but here you are walking with your fancy

[rasean_hyligar]: barefoot shoes on a nice cement sidewalk
you be thankful for that right be thankful

[rasean_hyligar]: for your clothes for another example be
thankful that you have legs to even walk

[rasean_hyligar]: right even if you're in pain be
thankful you have a body i know this

[rasean_hyligar]: sounds crazy but be thankful at have
a body part that hurts because what's the

[rasean_hyligar]: alternative you just don't even have that
body part right like you you could you

[rasean_hyligar]: could bang your elbow on a table
or bang it on a on a chair

[rasean_hyligar]: whatever and you hit the funny bow
whatever it is and yes it will hurt

[rasean_hyligar]: and you're probably cursing and be like
i shouldn't have hurt that how it hurts

[rasean_hyligar]: so much but yet still have an
elbow that you can actually bang like it

[rasean_hyligar]: sounds it sounds weird but when you
really piece all these things together having this

[rasean_hyligar]: gratitude will completely shift your mind set
and finally the final tip that i have

[rasean_hyligar]: for you why let's give the drum
one more time right

[rasean_hyligar]: as to early alas too early the
last tip is to give happiness yes this

[rasean_hyligar]: is probably a tip you probably weren't
expecting but yes give happiness and kindness if

[rasean_hyligar]: you're unhappy go volunteer at home shelter
that's it like i really wish it was

[rasean_hyligar]: more it was more complex than that
but it's really not right we stick to

[rasean_hyligar]: the simple things here simple actionable tips
again so goal volunteer to homely shelter and

[rasean_hyligar]: i guarantee you when you do that
and you see somebody else's smile from all

[rasean_hyligar]: the food that you've given them and
the bed that they have to sleep on

[rasean_hyligar]: and the warmth that they have i
guarantee it's going to warmth as long as

[rasean_hyligar]: you're a person in your right mind
it's going to warm up your heart it's

[rasean_hyligar]: going to warm you up on the
inside and you're going to feel like oh

[rasean_hyligar]: my gosh like i feel good helping
other people that's why if you look back

[rasean_hyligar]: at all the different guests that i've
had on the show before right all the

[rasean_hyligar]: different life coaches and everybody coming bringing
their expertise and everything as people always say

[rasean_hyligar]: things like they found that when they
help other people they themselves feel that they

[rasean_hyligar]: are fulfilled right because they're going out
and helping other people they're bestowing their knowledge

[rasean_hyligar]: and their wisdom on to other people
and because they're helping other people to become

[rasean_hyligar]: better that makes them feel good on
the inside that's why i do this podcast

[rasean_hyligar]: for you guys right i enjoy doing
this i enjoy giving you all tips i

[rasean_hyligar]: enjoy talking to all the guests and
everybody that we have on the show i

[rasean_hyligar]: enjoy that because i know at the
end of the day this is going going

[rasean_hyligar]: to be benefiting you guys right and
i of course obviously i get some things

[rasean_hyligar]: out of it as well but of
course it also benefits you guys and it's

[rasean_hyligar]: absolutely fantastic that that actually happens and
i love it i absolutely love it right

[rasean_hyligar]: and so that's why i keep doing
it right that's why when i talk about

[rasean_hyligar]: the my past business ventures before right
that's why i never pursued them for more

[rasean_hyligar]: than a year one because i had
the wrong mind set and two i didn't

[rasean_hyligar]: truly feel like i was truly helping
people to the best of my ability right

[rasean_hyligar]: and now that i'm doing this podcast
i feel like i'm helping people so so

[rasean_hyligar]: much more and that's why i feel
so inclined to do this podcast and even

[rasean_hyligar]: when i'm at my nine to five
or on the weekend or anything i'm still

[rasean_hyligar]: thinking about this pod so i'm still
thinking about things that i can get to

[rasean_hyligar]: improve the quality i'm still thinking about
how i can revamp the episodes i'm doing

[rasean_hyligar]: all kinds of things on the back
and that you all have no idea of

[rasean_hyligar]: what's going on but all the tings
on the back and then i'm trying to

[rasean_hyligar]: you know finesse and fan angle ut
things together and make it into these these

[rasean_hyligar]: nice little documents and do all all
kinds of stuff that i'm doin in the

[rasean_hyligar]: background right that i'm working on just
try to make the experience of this podcast

[rasean_hyligar]: we can bring this episode to a
close here we all get into negative slump

[rasean_hyligar]: sometimes right and i'd be lying if
i said personally that i've never been in

[rasean_hyligar]: one and you'd be lying if you
said you've never been in one either but

[rasean_hyligar]: the most important thing is that when
you notice you are in that slump you

[rasean_hyligar]: need to get out as quickly as
possible by implementing at least one or best

[rasean_hyligar]: case all five of the tips that
