Life can be a tedious cycle of ups and downs. It can make you feel like you’re in a never ending cycle and the only difference is that you get weaker day-by-day and it makes you ask yourself: “what happened to my carefree childhood days?” Childhood is forever gone and replaced by our jobs and money when we become adults. A job is what keeps us getting money and money that keeps us “happy,” apparently. It can be a hopeless case but there’s still hope for those of you who feel abandoned by life’s goodness. Here are 6 things that you can do to change your life forever.
1. Be Positive
Before you’ll be able o change everything around you, you must first have the courage to change yourself. This change must happen on the inside and can only be done by you. To help get started you must always look at the bright side of every situation or every choice you make no matter how bad and complicated a situation is. The game here is like playing with energy. The more you are positive the more you attract positives and in the opposite, the more you stress out the more you attract negativity. Remember that you must always smile and look forward for the things that are good.
2. Be creative
You should always put to mind that you are not a robot. You are not programmed to keep a daily schedule and nether are you installed with a slaving software. A human being must have a slice of culture and creativity. To do this, you must first find some inspiration. You can start by reading all sorts of books and the best ones that can inspire are biographies. Reading will aid you in opening yourself to new ideas. Second, you must start to express yourself. If you’re a person with the passion for words like me, you can start jotting down a personal journal where you can write your everyday adventure. If you’re grandiose you can choose to draw or paint. Doing so expresses your personality via imagery where you can experiment with colors and shapes. For some, photography and fashion is their choice but possibilities are always endless.
3. Exercise Regularly
Doing the same thing every day is not healthy mentally and definitely physically especially if you consider food as a stress reliever. Exercising regularly is good with two given points: It makes you look good and feel good. As the common perception, putting off the few extra pounds will make you look good. But actually gaining a few extra ‘fats’ increases the chance of getting severe diseases like diabetes. And as research shows, exercising will make you feel good in a way that it releases endorphins that help make you happy. In the long run exercising regularly will forever leave a good lasting impression.
4. Learning a New Skill
College degrees are definitely something. But, it’s never bad to earn a new skill. Getting a new skill permanently changes how you may live every day. Whether the skill you earn is for your profession or for your passion, either skill increases the possibilities of earning a good promotion or be noticed by famous people if the skill is your passion. Basically, a skill is a gateway for new possibilities. If you don’t have the luxury of time to go to school there are thousands of online courses you could enroll to.
5. Set and Plan your Goals
One important thing for a difference in your future is to plan on how to get there. In some point in time, we expect to be living in our dreams. Yet life isn’t miraculous and the best thing we have to do is plan on how to achieve them at some point in time. As a start, give yourself a time from now to when you expect your goals to be achieved. Perhaps 3 years from now you’ll be a professional photographer. Plan on month 1 where you study the most basics to the complex. Month 3 will be going out to the field and starting a group or presenting exhibit. Month 6 will be where you’ll be buying new equipment. And so the plan goes on.
6. Keep An Open Mind
It’s fine to keep your own thoughts and perceptions. The idea of having one is like having your own window where what you see beyond is what you believe in. There’s no problem with that but you must also understand and respect other people’s point of view. The idea now is not to keep a shallow view but to expand what you already see. Especially now that times are changing, it’s best to be open about these certain changes whether people, place and way of life.
Changing the way you live must always start from your heart and these simple 6 steps will help you get through the life you deserve!
