Here are five amendments you should make in your life to become the best version of yourself.
Life is too short not to live it in the best way possible. However, call it peer pressure or the fast-paced lifestyle we lead, we end up cultivating habits that are not great for us. For example, have you ever thought that our ancestors were way happier than us since they didn’t have access to smartphones and computers? Or, have you ever realized being jealous of that over-performing colleague or friend just because he is doing well in life. Not just this, most of us get so engrossed in the nitty-gritty of our lives that we even start taking our health for granted. But don’t worry, as “late” is no word in this race called life, and you can always make quick tweaks to the way you live.
How to be the best version of yourself
These amendments will not only help you become a better version of yourself but will help you win at everything. So without further ado, let’s discover these:
1Be More Grateful
There are so many things in life to be grateful for—our relationships, professional life, where we stand in life, and whatnot. Therefore, instead of cribbing about things, make it a habit to pay gratitude to everything and everyone in life. As you never know what it would be like to stay in the absence of them. So, greet everyone, tell them you are thankful for everything they’ve done for you. Practice random acts of kindness even with people you don’t know–it might sound wired, but it will take you very far in life.
2Welcome Digital Detoxing
On your phone all the time? Well, you don’t realize your smartphone can be the biggest distraction while you try to achieve your goals in life. Though it is good to be available, those constant notifications, all the social media chatter will deter you from focusing on things where you really should. Bring it in your habit to practice keeping away your phones and all other devices for a while to bring your focus back. These little periods of aloofness can also act as great moments of realization and can put you back on track. Try it, and you’ll feel the difference yourself.
3Don’t Shun New learnings
According to experts, if you want to become a successful person, try and learn one new skill every day. So, do not shy away from learning new things or trying out skills that are alien to you. It could be anything, from a basic life skill like cooking to something more advanced like learning smart negotiation tactics that could help you in your professional life ahead. Remember, a skill learned is never wasted and is only going to come to your rescue at some point. So, make it a habit to learn every day to welcome all the glory in life.
4Take Care of Yourself
Often while pursuing our professional aspirations, we forget the basic rules of living. For example, we start taking our health for granted by skipping meals, not working out, and indulging in malpractices like alcohol, smoking, etc.; all this, in the long run, could prove highly fatal. Therefore, make sure to consider our bodies as our holy God and worship it daily by eating right, exercising, and avoiding everything which is not good for our health.
5Stop Negative self-talk
While we understand that our brains are hard-wired to think negatively, but we can shun this habit by practicing. Instead of judging and being harsh on yourself, try and be more positive. Stop thinking about the past and focus on the bright future. Be kind to yourself, and the world around you will be kinder to you. Try it and let us know how it fared for you.
Nobody wants to age, taking forward the habit that they know isn’t good for them. We hope the above tips help you become the version that you desire to be. All the best!
