Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
The truth is, there is always going to be someone who has a better paying job, friends that start families before you, or relatives with fancier cars. The grass is always greener on the other side- so know that comparing yourself to others will only make you unhappy. Instead, focus on your own definition of success and happiness.
Every small or large accomplishment in your life deserves recognition. Take the time to celebrate every milestone before moving on to your next goal. Remember to cherish the moment and pat yourself on the back!
Think Beyond Results
The biggest enemy of your happiness is worry - the worry that comes from fixating on events that are beyond your control. Once you’ve taken action there’s usually not much more you can do. Try and focus on the job at hand and gain experience from the opportunity instead of worrying about the outcome.
Avoid Negative Talk
Phrases like “This won’t work” or “I can’t do this” are demoralising and pointless. Often what comes out of your mouth programs your mind. Make an active effort to speak positively and you’ll see the magical results it can bring.
Most of us don’t move enough. When we work more, we sit more, drive more and spend less time moving and stretching our bodies. The fact is when you keep yourself healthy and fit you allow yourself to get a lot more done in your day. You sleep better, think better and reduce stress levels significantly. Put on your favourite tune and dance around, take a walk outside, find a workout routine that suits you- whatever activity you pick is sure to leave you feeling healthier and happier.
Create Productive Routines
Never underestimate the magic of a good routine! Maintaining a morning routine can help you stay on track, save time and decrease stress. A self-care routine makes sure you make time to give back to yourself and recharge your batteries. Any routine you commit to and work on can truly improve your life significantly.
End Your Day with Gratitude
It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small before you go to bed try and think of at least one good thing that happened to you.
