I am a very positive person, I always have been even through the toughest parts of my life. I live a happy life because I work hard to get what I want and feel I have a very simple plan to follow that will help you live a happier life to! Try these simple steps to achieve a life your proud of:
Set goals for yourself no matter how small. It never fails to surprise me how great I feel after I accomplish something I set out to do. I am beaming with pride and I feel successful. Whether you want to purge the junk out of your house, reorganize the pantry, start a savings plan, meet a dietary goal, or simply start getting more exercise each goal is obtainable and makes you feel great when you achieve it.
Reward yourself when you meet your goals. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, it can be as small as an iced cappuccino from Tim Hortons. Rewards make you happy and this in turn puts you in a good mood making you want to achieve more goals.
Face your debt, collections, and bills head on without hesitation. I feel so much stress lifted off my back when I pay off my bills and have nothing to worry about. Money is one of the biggest stress causes in your lifetime so pushing your problems aside is making nothing better for yourself. Stand strong and make the calls, plan payments, and get those debts taken care of. You will feel a million times better.
Make more time for yourself by getting up earlier. I am always running out of time so when I get up at 6 am on the weekends I know I am making a good choice. I get so much more done when I don’t sleep in so even if you get up an hour earlier to sit and relax you will have more time to get important stuff done. Time is our most valuable asset as human beings, don’t let it go to waste!
Make time for friends and family. We all need to connect with other people to function properly, it helps reduce stress, create relationships, obtain social skills and gives you a sense of belonging. People are great when they come together and help each other out so maintaining healthy relationships can help you get through tough times easier, motivate you, give you a shoulder to cry on, great advice or simple bonding every person needs.
Talk to someone when you feel you need to. Sometimes life can be super hard to handle and it makes you feel all kinds of emotions that you don’t need to face alone. Talking to others can help you get through anything and it is always a good idea if your having thoughts of giving up or worthlessness. All life has meaning and you need to know there is always a way to fix anything thrown our way. Speaking with a therapist may help you tackle any hardships your facing in life, know that help is always there.
Start saving and spending your money wisely. Start reading about savings tactics and budgets because they will help motivate you to start making better choices financially. Money is a hard thing to live with but even harder to live without so start saving it for emergencies and other important life events. We need money to maintain a quality of life so if your making bad decisions it’s in your best interest to start living a frugal life for a brighter future.
