It’s too easy to become overwhelmed trying to attain all our wants and desires, to have the picture perfect Instagram life. Yet the recipe for a truly satisfying life is down to just three things that you need to do:
1. Improve Your Physical Health
How in the world are you going to reach any goals with bad health? Remember when you had that cold, fever or aching back? Were you in any kind of mood to work on your life goals? I don’t think so. But when you start eating healthily and working out, all kinds of energy comes flooding in; and whether it’s painting a room or starting a business, good physical health makes goals much easier to attain.
So, get off your butt and start taking care of your body. Good things will follow. Goals will be reached.
2. Improve Your Mental Health
Living in a culture that bombards us with information, advertisements and infinite choice, as well as inflicting us with downsizing and other incredible job stressors, takes a huge negative toll on our society’s health. We are living in an age of chronic stress. All these stressors create enormous mind- chatter and reducing this is key. It’s important to realize that this mind-chatter takes us away from the present moment. Why? Because we end up worrying about what’s next, instead of enjoying the world around us right now.
Try this. Take a grape and pop it in your mouth. Roll it around and feel the texture – taste that sweet juice. This is called practising mindfulness. Living in the present moment. Conscious reflection. Meditation. The more you reduce that useless mind-chatter, the more you live in the present moment and experience calmness and peace. A little conscious reflection or meditation is astonishingly powerful. Try it.
3. Improve Your Financial Health
Money makes our world go around. We like money and there’s nothing wrong with wanting it. Money is our friend. The only time that money inflicts pain upon us is when we owe it. And why do we owe it? Because society encourages us to live beyond our means. It’s too easy to get credit. Our entire capitalistic society is on a treadmill of endless consumerism.
Developing fiscal control equals freedom and increased opportunity. Bad finances provide handcuffs, stress, worry and no opportunity. The choice is clear. Forget about status symbols and keeping up with the Jones’s. It’s simple when it comes down to good financial health. Live within you means and don’t fall for the glittery adverts trying to sell you stuff you don’t actually need!
So, those are the three things you need to do. Well, what are you waiting for? The first step on your self-development journey is to start!
