Acquiring the ability to live better is not an easy feat. It takes practice, time, and dedication. However, with these tips and ideas, you can easily begin to live better day by day. Try them out and let us know how they go.
Make simple changes
When it comes to living better, simple doesn’t mean boring. In fact, it means anything but simple. Get creative with it and make your life and your home more enjoyable. Think about how you can incorporate some of the following into your daily life.
· Change your routine. Instead of going to bed at night at around 3am, go to bed a little earlier. You’re likely to feel more alert in the morning and be able to focus more.
· Wash your face in the morning instead of leaving it for the night. It’s likely you’ll feel more refreshed and alert in the morning.
· Swap your evening routine for a starting time that fits your morning routine. If you normally have your meetings at 9am, move them to 10am so you have more time to enjoy your coffee and get ready for work.
· Extend your morning coffee break by switching to an afternoon snack. You’re likely to feel more alert and productive when you’re not hungry.
· Pick one of the following as your favourite thing and make it a part of your day: reading, watching TV, doing chores, etc.
· Make time for your favourite hobby. You’re likely to be more focused and happy when you’re doing something you love.
· Get enough sleep. We all know how important it is to get enough sleep, but how can you make it through the day without it? Try to get to sleep a little earlier (around 5pm) and get a good night’s sleep.
· Drink water. It’s likely you’ll feel more alert and focused when you’re hydrated.
· Take a supplement that assists with focus and concentration.
· Exercise. Exercise is good for the body and the mind. It’ll help you feel alert and focused and give your body a good work out.
· Remember to smile. It’s been proven that happy people are more likely to take risks and have higher rated experiences in life.
· Stay committed to your goals. If you don’t know where to start, start small. Remember, living better is not a daring feat. It’s something you can do each day and reap the rewards each day.
We live in a society that constantly pressures us to be more mindful. We’re always being told to be more careful and to save, to pay our bills, and to fit into our clothes. We’re also being told to be happier and more kinder. We’re constantly being told to be more daring, adventurous, and free.
Yet, somehow, we also have the urge to set boundaries. To say no, to keep our passions to ourselves, and to keep some space between us and other people. We also have the urge to be quiet, to stay in and to take a break.
As you grow older, you’ll notice that you have a harder time saying no to things. Also, you’ll notice that you have a harder time taking a break. After a while, you’ll find that it’s easier to say no to things that aren’t essential.
That’s why it’s worth asking yourself these questions when you’re approaching a boundary:
· What do I really need to do today?
· How will this help me get what I need to do done today?
· If no one is going to be hurt, then yes, I can say no.
· What is this doing to my life and my day?
· Am I making any progress?
· Is this what I want to do?
· Can I back out of this now?
· Does this feel right?
· Am I going to be happy with this outcome?
· And finally, is this something I want to do for the rest of my life?
One of the best ways to live better is to exercise regularly. It’s proven to improve overall health, boost your mood, and reduce stress.
There are many forms of exercise you can do. You can pick one that you enjoy doing and do it consistently. Another form of exercise is weight lifting. There are many benefits to both forms of exercise and you can’t really go wrong with any of them.
Learn a new skill
Learning a new skill can help you live better. You learn by doing and gaining insight into the world around you. Learning a new skill can be anything from wood turning to gardening to photography. You can also learn a new skill through the practice of meditation.
Take a break
When you’re having fun, you feel happy, relaxed, and content. You’re likely to work a little bit less and spend your time more effectively. This is a good thing, not only for your wallet, but for your mood as well.
We all have an idea of what life is going to be like and sometimes that’s not good enough for us. We want to be surprised, we want to be challenged, and we want to be happy.
Living better doesn’t mean that you have to do everything by the book. It means that you understand what life is about and you choose to be happy instead of being stressed out all the time.
These are just a few tips and ideas on how to make every day enjoyable. We’d love to hear how your life has changed for the better and what you’d like to try next.
