 Keeping Hope In New Year: 8 Tips to Be Confident

Hope gives strength and gives courage. It helps you through difficult times and lets you persevere. It is for this reason that it is important never to lose hope. I will help you with some tips to keep the hope that gives you and others confidence.

Having hope means not losing faith and confidence. You can find out how to keep your hope in the new year :

The power of hope

Hope is not only good for your soul, but it can also strengthen your immune system. It gives you strength, courage, and perseverance. In the same way, however, hopelessness can also weaken your will to live and deprive you of energy. That is why it is important to find a task even in the toughest times of your life, to experience happy moments every now and then, and not to lose hope.


What hope actually is

The term hope comes from the Middle Low German “hopen” (hopping, jumping/fidgeting restlessly with expectation) and describes a positive attitude towards the future. Hoping doesn't need to be certain that something good will happen. A person who hopes believes that everything has its purpose and that there is always the possibility that things will turn out for the better. Hope can be helpful and beautiful in the most diverse areas of life.

For example, hope can appear as a kind of childlike anticipation when the positive expectation of a certain event grows. But hope can also mean confidence if the belief in the good does not dry up, although difficult times are lived through. Sometimes this positive view of life can also be called optimism.

Hope, however, does not have to be a permanent state. It can be broken or accompanied by fear, doubt, and even hopelessness. Giving one another hope and confidence can help many people who find themselves in a seemingly hopeless situation or who are simply going through a difficult time.

Green as the color of hope

Green is the color of hopeful spring and nature

The color green represents hope. In other contexts, it can also stand for life itself, for nature, growth, fertility, ecology, or, in glaring form, even for poison or envy. Green arises from yellow and blue, so it forms the harmonious middle between a warm and a cold color. It unites opposites and has a calming effect.

Bluish-green stands for good-naturedness, serenity, seclusion, and relaxation. Yellowish green symbolizes the spring-like power of nature. Like young growing shoots, it gives new hope for a splendid flowering time or a rich harvest. It is the contrast to the frosty, lifeless winter that gives the fresh, lush green of spring its strength. Due to its nature symbolism, green is still considered the color of hope and confidence.

Make a list of the positive aspects of your situation

need hope

What are you grateful for in your life? And what can you get from your situation positively for yourself? It is important to make yourself aware, even in difficult times, that you are not alone and that these times also always bring something good with them. This can be an important self-knowledge for you or positive effects on others. Realize that it will all pass at some point and use your list to motivate yourself to think positively.

Use the days when you have a lot of hope to make this list. Write down every little thing that seems good to you. Read the list through when you are having a bad day and are desperate. It can lift your mood quickly and you can save yourself from your hopelessness with it.

Take a break from the news

When the bad news builds up on TV, radio, or social networks, consciously take time out from it. Protect yourself when the world's negativities take over. All the negative headlines can quickly make you feel like the world has nothing beautiful to offer. In addition to all the bad things, so many good things also happen: people show solidarity with one another, help each other, and create great things. Every day they fight for the good and beauty in this world and you should be aware of that as well.

Of course, it's always harder to come across positive news stories than negative ones. So sometimes you should just cut yourself off from any news, even if it's just for a day. You might even let your friends know that you don't want to be informed about anything because you're taking a day off today. This is the only way to survive difficult times. Take care of yourself and thus make sure that you can hold out better. Have patience and understanding for yourself and don't blame yourself.

Get close to positive people who are good for you

Surround yourself with cheerful people in order to keep your hope. Let them show you that life can be beautiful. Reach out to the people around you, with whom you can confide, and with whom you have a great connection. These can be parents, siblings, uncles, and aunts, cousins, or friends. Even if you don't usually have that much contact with positive people, you should try to establish closer contact. This also helps against loneliness.

Also, avoid contact with pessimistic people who pull you down. For example, explain to them that you need some time to yourself or just that you are not in the mood for bad news today. In this way, avoid their attitudes rubbing off on you and protect yourself from negative thoughts.

Let everything out

No matter how much you distract yourself and focus on the positive, sometimes there are just days when nothing wants to lift the mood. In such a case, it's perfectly fine to just let out your bad mood. While you can distract yourself and use a positive mindset to inspire you with hope, sometimes when the feelings of desperation are deep, letting them break out is the only solution.

Scream into your pillow, throw it on the floor and cry when it comes over you. Sometimes it also helps to write down everything that is bothering you. State what scares you, what makes you depressed, and why you think you have no more hope. By naming how you feel, you may be able to classify your feelings better and then perceive them as less bad. Even if you still don't understand what's going on with you today, you still let it out. Your negativity has discharged and it will be easier for you to focus your gaze on the positive again and to draw hope.


Write a diary

Keep a journal to better deal with negative thoughts

To avoid days of despair and hopelessness, you can also keep a journal. There you can talk about your feelings over and over again and no one ever has to read it. Don't put yourself under too much pressure, though. A journal exudes that you have to take the trouble to write it every day. Because of this, many people don't even start. But why should you have to stick to it? Nobody but yourself can influence when and how much you write. Try to be more relaxed and just decide spontaneously when it is good for you to write in your diary and when you don't feel like it.

Help other people

When you almost lose hope and inwardly threaten to give up, you should remember who you are important too. Are there people in need in your family or can you support friends? Perhaps you can think of some voluntary activity that you would enjoy or find out about a fundraising campaign and thus support other people.

There are so many ways to prove to yourself that you have a purpose in life and that you can give hope to others, even if you didn't have one before. You will receive gratitude and love in return and learn that there is always a reason to hope. Certainly, the people you helped did not expect to get your help either. But they had reason to hope and the time until then would have seemed more bearable to them. So don't lose your confidence either, because you never know what life has in store for you.

Put yourself back in happy moments

Sometimes it can work wonders when you step back into happy moments in your life. This can either be your childhood, nice moments with friends and family, or moments in which you were successful and especially proud of yourself. Get out some old photo albums, watch a series from your childhood, or contact old friends you had a good time with back then.

Graduation certificates, the high school newspaper, or collected birthday cards with kind words from your fellow men are also among the pick-me-ups. Literally sink into your memories and realize that it is important to keep hope for such beautiful moments. Be brave for the people you love or who you once loved.

Even then, there were certainly times when you lost courage or hope. But you survived these times and emerged stronger from them. Every bad phase comes to an end at some point and you can experience beautiful moments again.

Just keep your hope in the new year. Happy New Year !!!
