Change Your Life in 5 Steps
By Mikkie Mills
Life is full of dynamic twists and turns that make up put the important aspects of life on the back-burner. We often find ourselves seeking relief in ways that don’t bring the satisfying gratification that we truly need. Oftentimes, that inability to satisfy ourselves leads us to have lives that are unfulfilling and depressed. Luckily there are simple ways that you can change your life and find that relief that you are seeking.
1. Do Meditations Daily
There are so many different types of benefits to meditation. It helps you to clear your mind and focus on the here and the now. It pushes are the clattering of the world and brings a quiet peace into your life and allows you to explore yourself. You can find weaknesses and new strengths while meditating that allow you to combat the world and find peace even during chaos. There are different ways to meditate. Some people like to listen to a guided meditation to lead them in their practice. Others prefer to create that peace themselves. Some people pray while meditating to find their greatest relief. No matter how you chose to meditate, you should find the time to do it daily.
2. Get Rid of the Poisons in Your Life
A lot of us carry around poisons that were left behind from bitter experiences in the past. Some people have poison in the form of resentment towards another person. Some people can’t forgive themselves for something that they have done. You need to let go of the past and focus on the future. Forgive those who have wronged you and then work on forgiving yourself.
3. Change the Small and Simple Things
Go over your daily routine in your mind and pick out the tendencies that you have that are damaging to your life. Quit smoking or drinking and look to have clarity in your mind at all times. It is so important to be able to think clearly at all points in the day. There should never be a reason that you should feel like you need to escape life for a while. Instead, work through your challenges as they come and fight them. If you find yourself binging on food or TV or something else that wastes your precious time, then find a way to quit that activity. For food, try out a new lifestyle diet like the keto diet and use your time by finding healthy keto dinner ideas. Or read a book instead of watching TV. Whatever it is, find a safer alternative to your current activities so that you can enrich your life.
4. Look Outward to the People Around You
Sometimes our lives feel empty because we haven’t brought enough people close enough to keep our hearts warm. Imagine your heart like a room. The more people who have inside, the warmer it is. If the room stays empty during the winter time, then you’ll find that it grows cold and icy. The best way to bring people in is to serve them. People feel loved and remembered when you remember to reach out and tend to their needs. They will, in turn, reach out to fulfill your own needs and remedy your loneliness.
5. Use the Words “I Love You”
You should never underestimate the power of the words “I love you.” Some people crave to hear those words for their entire lives. When you do love sometime, say it. Let them know how much they mean to you. Reach out to them and compliment them. If it is a spouse, learn their love language so that you can better show your love for them. When you say “I love you” more, you’ll find that you hear it more often as well.
Your life is run by your actions and your thoughts. If you remember that you can be happy, then you will be happy. If you think negatively, then those thoughts will become a reality for you. Make sure that your thoughts are filled with positivity and spread that joy to the people around you as well.
