- Prioritize your time wisely
Time is a very precious asset in our life. Plan your day right in the morning. Wake up with a spirited mind and body. Do something meaningful each day. So that when you turn off lights at night you feel accomplished
2.Remember, life is what’s happening while you’re busy on your cell phone
Once when I was at a party, I could see the happiest and cheerful tables were where phones didn’t exist. They had food slowly and stayed longer on the tables because they enjoyed the togetherness of the people around them. While the ones busy on phone screens were quiet and quicker to eat.
Try and observe how things are when you keep your phone aside. Next time you leave for a party, leave phones at home to celebrate your company.
- Put your family first
Beyond other things, keep your family first. Prioritize you and your family first. Earning more money can wait. Gathering more money won’t make a happy family but the gathering more time for them will.
A well-spent time will always be with “family” with no change. Summing up, contentment is togetherness.
- Expunge hate from your heart.
Life is too short. This too necessitates discipline. Hate will burden you, drain you and distract from the positive aspects of your life. Put your ego aside and replace it with humility.
This so apt for this “Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat.”
- Live fully in each moment.
Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is unpromised. The only certain thing we have in life is right now, this very moment.
This is an important lesson I’ve learned when meditating. I learned the cruciality of being mindful and the importance of acknowledging our senses. By smelling, tasting, feeling, seeing, and hearing everything in our surroundings, we’re able to stay in the present. Life is incredibly beautiful when you slow down enough to cherish it. Live in the moment, live for now. This very moment is life.
- Escape from all the craziness that lives in your head
The story that keeps going in your head is not even close to the actual day-to-day life. Get rid of all negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. Positive thinking leads to positive outcomes.
The more you think about any work the more difficult it becomes to get done. All the ‘difficulty’ is created by your mind. The work is easy and possible only when you take the first step
- You should quit being so serious 24/7.
Not everything is a matter of life and death. Feel free to take time off from being serious and rather joke around and act stupid.
Laughter helps people live longer, while also reducing blood pressure. The world would be a better place if we would all quit taking ourselves so seriously and get a little stupid. One of my favorite ways to get stupid is to start dancing.
In my opinion, I always took longer to complete tasks when I was serious as when I was happy. Eliminate seriousness and start being crazy and stupid. Live a life that is worth being remembered, as when you look back after 30 years down the lane you have a smile on your face. And say only I lived a life that no one can live.
- Spice up your life with some daily thrills.
Life is meant to be one big adventure, so get to exploring. Become daring and start saying yes to things you always dreamt of doing. Learn a new skill such as ballroom dancing, or go skydiving. Get a makeover done. Get a haircut, get a new outfit different from what you usually wear.
Try a usual recipe and enhance your taste buds.
- Treat yourself like royalty
It’s time to forgive yourself and put an end to live in the past. If you don’t show respect and kindness to yourself, then how can you expect someone else to? How can someone else see how awesome you are if you can’t see it yourself?
“What you pay attention to grows. Pay attention to your loveliness, your magnificent self. Begin now.”
- Value others and find people who value you
The first pillar of meaning is “belonging,” comes from “being in relationships where you’re valued for who you are intrinsically and where you value others as well.” The best example of this relationship is bond with family or friends.
I must also warn that you should not value relationships where you are being hurt or the ones where people want you to change.
True love comes from belongingness or where you are valued. So connect with those who make your life easy and happier to live.
