Everybody would like to feel healthier, more positive, and more productive. The problem is that becoming so can seem like a lot of work and effort, and time is a constant factor as well. The world moves fast, and taking time out of your day to work on yourself can very often feel like an unnecessary extra chore that there’s simply no time left in the day for. It doesn’t have to be like that. Sometimes, even the smallest of changes can lead to big, positive effects, and they might be easier to achieve than you think.
If you’re interested in becoming a better version of yourself, check out the easiest ideal ways to build a better you.
Get Out of Bed
If you want to emulate some of the most successful people in the world, all you have to do is set your alarm to go off an hour early. It might be a struggle at first, but you’ll find that your body clock quickly becomes used to it, and that means that you get a free extra hour every day. Use this to read, treat yourself to some ‘me time,’ or even meditate. How you use your free hour is up to you.
The more that you plan your day, the easier it will be to become far more productive. It’s like having a smart roadmap for your life! Life can get very overwhelming, especially if you’re being inundated with demands from family, work, or even your own expectations. The trick is to write down everything that you need to do today, this week, and even this year. Prioritize the essentials, and you’ll find that your time will become much more productive, and you might even find that you have more time in the day to relax.
One Bad Habit
We all know what our worst bad habit is. Knowing what it is and knowing how to tackle it can be very different, and quitting some of the more addictive substances or behaviours can be challenging to say the least. However, the more illegal or dangerous your bad habits are, the more vital it is that you get help to address them. It can take time, but if you want to grow old, or avoid jail-time, then why not start looking at those bad habits and recognising them for what they are? Lose the crutches. Drugs of all kinds have issues, but when it comes to illegal ones, if you get caught with them then you might be charged with conspiracy to sell drugs and that can have some very negative long-term repercussions on your life. If you do end up charged, be sure to have a solicitor on your side.
There’s nothing worse than being told to smile by a stranger, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed by life and stressed beyond compare, then having a smile might actually help. While there have been plenty of studies into the positive effects of smiling, there are now even suggestions that smiling can act as a stress reliever. Not only that, but a good smile is contagious too, so it can have a massively positive effect on even the most awkward social gathering or toxic work environment. If things are starting to get on top of you, then have a quick smile and move on with your day.
Never underestimate just how much even the smallest changes can transform your life. Have a look at your daily schedule and habits, and trim down the ones that are holding you back. Adopt more positive and beneficial ones, and you could end up being the very best version of you.
