Do me a favor.
Remove yourself from all the chaos, filter out the noise, and ask yourself. Am I heading in the right direction? Am I fulfilling my goals? Am I doing everything in my power to better myself?
Here are my 5 helpful ways to a better life, a better you, and a happier self.
Shout out your accomplishments, promote your skills and strengths, be bold, and never apologize for being you.
Acknowledging the person you’ve become. Reflect on the changes you’ve had to withstand, the lessons you’ve learned, and all the storms you’ve overcome. Be proud of all the steps you’ve taken on this ever-changing journey.
Inhale, exhale, and learn to live in the present moment. Mindfulness means to become more self-aware. Be mindful of what you’re putting into your body.
Pay attention to your thoughts, movements, breathing, etc. When your self-awareness is active, you start to think and see with more clarity — no more unnecessary clutter and mental chatter.
When we are mindful, we enter the pure awareness of our predicament and cradle it without judgment, fear, blame, shame, or expectation. This loyalty to what allows us to turn unfulfilled needs into self-knowledge. –
Richo, David (How To be an adult in relationships)
Make necessary changes
What makes you happy? What are you unhappy about, and what are you doing to change that?
We’re still growing and learning each day. Exploring the positive and negative aspects of our shadow self can help us understand what areas in our lives need self-improvement.
If you feel like you’re not where you want to be, implement the necessary changes right away. The more you wait, the harder it will be. Leap, follow your gut and take the required steps. Take responsibility for your life and self.
Eliminate negative thoughts
Silence the negative thoughts and start changing the way you look at things. Your worldview will always influence your self-concept. If you think negatively of the world, you will think negatively of yourself.
Shift your focus towards the positive. So much good will come to you once you start to reduce the negative and bitter thoughts.
For now, be gracious for what you’ve got, even if it’s not a lot. It’s more than you think. Be thankful for all the good in your life: Your partner, your pets, your family and friends, the clothes on your body, and the roof above your head.
