We often go through our day paying little attention to our bodies and inner feelings. Our lives almost become routine, counting down the seconds until the weekend. Before we know it, time has flown by so fast. I mean, wasn’t it just summer? How is it already almost November?
I’m here to remind you the importance of taking a deep breath and truly cherishing each and everyday. We are only given a few days on this earth; we might as well make the most out of them. Here are a few tips to help you make the most out of your daily life:
1) Wake up early
There is so much to be missed during the early hours. Enjoy those quiet mornings and make a list of how you aspire your day to go. Maybe even go for a brisk walk outside. There’s nothing that feels as productive as being active in the morning.
2) Make your bed
They say making your bed everyday puts you on track for a more productive day. Finishing this small task gives you a sense of accomplishment and allows you to feel ready to take on any task coming your way.
3) Do something you love
Life is about being happy, so treat yourself with one fun activity everyday. Whether it is going to the movies with friends, listening to music, doing yoga, or painting. Allow yourself to enjoy the things you love.
4) Have an overall goal
Not something for that day only, but an overarching goal of what you wish to accomplish in your life and who you want to be. There are days that will be tougher than others, therefore it is essential to remind yourself what’s important in the long run.
5) Practice compassion
Whether it be helping a friend or volunteering at a shelter, there is no better feeling than giving back. They say humans are happiest when they are able to put a smile on other people’s faces.
6) Be present
This is vital in a world where everyone is constantly connected through the internet and social media. Listen to others and give your full attention in every situation. Get off your phone and start living in the present. There are so many amazing things you could be missing every time you’re on your phone.
7) Go to bed happy
Some days will be more successful than others but always remind yourself that tomorrow is a fresh new start. Love yourself and be proud of the ups and the downs.
