Today I’m pleased to welcome Juliane Burton to the blog who has some brilliant tips on how we can make the most out of each day. I know I’ve found myself struggling sometimes to keep on with each day but these tips really do sound like something I should be adopting for a much better and more positive future! 🙂 I hope you enjoy these tips…
How to Make the Most of Each Day
There is a time in our lives when every day seems to us dark, we feel disappointed. We feel that joy and happiness are impossible to achieve. Rather than making the most of our day, we make poor usage of our time.
But how that can change? It isn’t easy at the start, but you should find a way to move away from unproductive living and love the life you are living to the fullest.
That doesn’t mean you should go on the extreme levels but you should follow patterns that allow you to see the good and hope in everything, to see the positive side of negative things that are happening, or to make the best choices for ourselves.
Below we prepared a list of tips that can help you make the most of each day.
Pay attention to what you do.
While this recommendation may sound obvious, taking this approach needs practice. But what this recommendation means? You shouldn’t allow distractions to interfere to you, you should pay attention to the moments. Be mindful in everything you do.
When you have to take a tough decision, instead of avoiding it, you should imagine all the negative outcomes, involve yourself in the process, and make a decision based on the evidence.
You should eat right.
To make the most of each day you need fuel. This means you have to eat right; you have to get enough nutrition on your food choices. To eat well, also means, while you are eating, you should involve all your senses, like savor the taste, smell it, touch it and hear the sound of eating. You will notice that you not only be full of energy but you’ll be also more satisfied.
Exercise. Exercise. Exercise.
If you are the type of person that goes every day to the gym, continue to do it. But, if you aren’t that person, you could just get exercise daily because as we all know it is good for your body and mind, it can help you for your next project and it can fuel you with a lot of energy. You can just, climb the stairs, swim, or have a walk – just throw away feelings of anxiety, sadness, and stress.
Make progress in achieving your goals.
Everyone has something they want to accomplish. Whatever it is, it’s important to make progress each day. This can help you be motivated. It is satisfying to know that you have done some work reaching your goals.
You make a mistake – you learn a lesson.
We all know that no one is perfect…and perfection shouldn’t be your goal. We all make mistakes. People, sometimes tend to make more mistakes than necessary. But you have to learn the lesson each mistake contains. If you learn to look for a lesson on every mistake, you will be more likely to view the mistakes as opportunities that can grow you.
Holding a grudge towards a relative, co-worker, neighbor, friend, or someone you know doesn’t make you feel well for your mental health and your well-being. It does long-term damage to your personality. Find a way to forgive everyone, even yourself. Forgiveness doesn’t mean you can excuse the behavior; however, it makes the negativity to be released, and allows you to move on with your life.
Be kind and generous toward others.
Making the most out of your life you have to give to others. You wondered how does give make you feel? Helping someone in need can boost your self-esteem and add more joy to your life.
Do what you love.
If you love to go to the movies, to spend time with your friends, to read or dance, just do it. Each day makes time to do what you love. This can help you relax, rest and be happy. By spending time doing what you love will help to restore balance yourself on the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You will feel refreshed and ready to move with your things to do.
Mind your spirituality.
If you want to relax yourself try meditation, yoga, or just walk in the woods – feed your soul. This can add a uniquely human aspect and can contribute to balance your harmony of the mind, body, and spirit.
Keep a clean space.
We all agree that maintaining our space – makes us feel better. We may not be perfectionists but we dislike clutter, dirty dishes, or things that require maintenance.
Take Enough Sleep.
We are human species – and our body needs sleep to function properly. If you just lay your head on the pillow doesn’t guarantee rest. Keep your bedroom cool, make sure there are no distracting lights, no noises, turn off your phone.
Get help if you need it.
Psychotherapy can help you sort out things when you are feeling unable to do so on your own. Counseling can help you realize your strength and can give you the insight to work on your weaknesses.
Look for ways to grow and live to the fullest. Make the most of your days!
