Here are some simple changes that you can do, starting today, to create a happier & healthier life. I could share with you 100’s of simple changes but today I am only going to start with 7.
Before you read any further you have to understand that you are worth working on.
The Universe wants you to live a happy & healthy life and you deserve it. So make a commitment to yourself that you WILL implement these simple changes into your life over the next few weeks.
1. Enjoy Silence
What's in this article...
When was the last time you actually sat down in a quiet place and enjoyed the silence?
I am guessing that you probably can’t even remember.
Take some time this week. Find a beautiful quiet place, maybe in a park or a garden, and just sit down and enjoy the silence. Get rid of your mobile phone, your ipod and even the kids if you can. Take some big deep breaths and clear all that inner chatter in your mind.
I know this is hard at first but the more you practice it the more you will learn to ‘silence your inner chatter’ and clear your mind and relax.
2. Work at Self Improvement
By improving yourself and improving your life you are growing. I believe that if you are not growing you are dying.
Working on self improvement will help you to always move forward in every area of your life. You are a work in progress.
If you are unhappy with your life this is the time to do something about it.
Be honest with yourself.
Buy a self help book or take a course on motivation, or hire me as YOUR coach.
Just do something to move yourself closer to the happy and healthy life that you truly desire.
3. Be In Love
Sometimes love may hurt but your life would be worse without it. Isn’t it better to have loved and lost it than to never have loved at all?
That fact that sometimes love doesn’t go right makes it all the more precious when it does. As humans we all need love and we were never meant to be alone.
Take a chance and let yourself light up from the inside. Allow your body to be filled with a tingling sensation. And if you are already in love, make sure you are making the most of every moment. Take some extra time out and let your partner know how much they really mean to you.
4. Laugh a Lot!
Laughter is the best medicine. It relieves stress, it makes you feel alive and ensures that you don’t take life too seriously.
When was the last time you laughed? Now, I don’t mean had a little chuckle. I mean really laughed. Laughed so hard that your tummy muscles hurt and you had tears running down your face.
Studies have shown that there are health benefits from laughing whilst watching a funny movie. So get your favourite funny movie out this week or do something that will really make you laugh and let me know how you felt afterwards.
5. Dare To Dream
Everybody should have a dream. What’s yours?
Mine is to build schools in 3rd world countries.
The scale of your dream does not matter, but you really have to want it, to desire it deep down. What is it that you want your future to look like?
Write down your dream in specific detail and focus on it every day. Feel the emotions as if you have already achieved it. Take small steps towards it and before you know it, it will no longer be a dream.
6. Turn Off The TV
Time is your most precious resource and so much of your time is squandered watching TV. I am not saying that you should never watch it ever again but just be aware of how much you are watching and what you are feeding your sub conscious mind.
Use this time to do something to help improve your life. Read a book, phone an old friend, go for a walk, start a new hobby, study a course, play with your children.
Limit your TV viewing time and you will be amazed at what you can achieve in your life. Rather than watch other people live their lives, live your own!
7. Live One Day At A Time
Building value into each day may get a lot done but when you live one day at a time and enjoy what you do in the present, it’s hard not to be truly satisfied with your life.
So many hours in our days are wasted on doing things we really don’t enjoy and worrying about things that are never going to happen.
Live for the day and really be grateful for everything that you have. Take some time to smell the roses and enjoy every second.
Life is too short to wish it away and do things that we truly don’t enjoy.
NOW, remember that you are going to take these simple changes and start implementing them into your life. If it’s a happier and healthier life you are after then these simple changes will start you on the right path.
