Small Changes That Can Make Life More Enjoyable
We all need to make changes in our lives. We can all be happier, healthier or more successful in business. We all know we should make these changes, but we rarely follow through because we tend to think that to make a difference the changes should be bigger. This is not always true. It’s better to take some small baby steps towards your goal, so you won’t notice the changes so much. Many small changes added together will make a big difference.
Start with these small changes to help make life more enjoyable:
Wake up earlier
You don’t have to start getting up an hour earlier all at once. Start with 10 minutes and gradually increase the time as you become accustomed to getting up sooner. In no time at all you’ll be getting up an hour earlier without even noticing. Why get up earlier? So you’ll be able to have a more enjoyable and leisurely start to your day. You’ll have time to have a proper breakfast, do some exercise, read or meditate and anything else you want to enjoy in your extra time.
Even if you aren’t a serial procrastinator, there’s always something you will put off for another day – a phone call you don’t want to make, washing the dishes, or tidying up your room. Don’t go on a TV or Facebook binge to avoid doing these things. You’ll feel happier if you just do them so they’re not crowding your mind. You’ll feel really good and much lighter after you’ve done your chores. You’ll also feel more productive and happy that you’ve achieved something, even if only something small. Procrastination drains your energy, weighs down your mind, and makes you feel worthless. So snap out of it!
Try to be more optimistic than pessimistic. Being a pessimist can be draining and robs your life of happiness. If you are mostly pessimistic, start small by not automatically seeing the bad side of everything. Even some seemingly bad things can be good for you in the long term. Try to see the good in everything!
Never compare yourself
Don’t worry about what others have and you don’t. There will always be someone you know that has more than you do, no matter how much you have. You’ll only make yourself unhappy by comparing yourself to others. You will find more success and be better-off if you concentrate on your own goals and strive for success, without worrying about what everyone else is doing, and if they seem better than you.
Spend time on YOU
It’s OK to spoil yourself occasionally, and spend some time doing exactly what you want to do, instead of what you think is expected of you. Even though this might seem selfish on the surface, it’s actually beneficial to other people as well. You will be more cheery and will become a better person to be around.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised how these small changes that can make a huge impact on your life.
