6 STEPS TO A BETTER QUALITY LIFE. In this life, we want to be the best that we can be, living life to the fullest. Sometimes there are obstacles in the way. Work, family, money matters, obligations, friends, events, etc. The list is endless. In the midst of everything, how do we find time to ensure we’re living a quality life? It’s important to take the steps listed below that you are living the best life possible and you take time out to enjoy life; even amongst the chaos.
1. Take a deep breath and breathe
Breathing is essential to living. Literally. Taking a deep breathe and then exhaling releases toxins and anxiety. You won’t believe how much better you’ll feel after one deep breath. Go ahead, try it. Close your eyes and take a deep inhalation. Hold it briefly and then exhale. This simple step will release so much pressure from within you, living you feeling light after one deep breath. No matter what life throws at you, take time to breath! You’ll feel refreshed and so much better after you take time to relax.
2. Don’t take things personally
The biggest mistake people tend to do is take things personally. Whether it’s work related or something as silly as a car cutting you off. Never take things too personally. A disagreement at work with a colleague is simply related to the business at hand. Don’t linger things from work to home. Not only is this unfair to your loved one’s who have to deal with your wrath; it’s also unfair and unhealthy for you. If a work matter is bothering you; bring the person aside who made you feel a certain way and have a conversation with them. 9 times out of 10, they were unaware that they were upsetting you on a personal level. Talk things out. It’ll make you feel better.
3. Close your eyes and think of all the things you’re grateful for
Whether it’s a successful business, a great career or wonderful friends. Take time to think about everything that is important to you that you are thankful for. Taking time to reflect on these things is important. It shows your appreciation and also gives you something to look forward to. Whether it’s a significant other or a new contact that you’ve made. Be grateful for the things that get you excited or make you happy. These are the things and people we live for.
Yes, sleep. Sleep is important and vital to our health. Getting sleep, at least 7 hours a night, ensures we’re well-rested, recharged and ready to take on the day. Don’t let anyone fool you, being productive requires sleep; not coffee.
