How To Change Your Life For The Better

Hey Cats,

Are you happy with your life? It’s a hard-hitting question, but an incredibly important one. If you
aren’t happy for most of your day and are constantly counting down the days to the weekend, you
are not living your best life. First, it’s important to note that the answer to a better, more fulfilled life
is not winning the lottery. Winning the lottery is unlikely to happen to most of the world’s population,
and you shouldn’t shape your life around money. While it’s important to make money and not
financially struggle, it’s not the be all to living your best life. If you were waiting for a sign from the
universe before making the necessary changes to live your best life, this is it.

Making healthy choices
The first step towards living your best life is looking after your health. You can’t enjoy life to the
fullest when you neglect your health. Excess junk food and sugar can increase your risk of heart
disease, diabetes; drain your energy among other health issues. Eating a balanced diet and drinking
enough water will help keep your mind and body healthy. It’s okay to eat ice cream and chocolate
every now and then, but you need to learn to manage your sugar cravings. The right food will help
keep your mind alert and maintain your overall health. If you have trouble focusing throughout the
day, you should also consider taking better care of your sleep schedule. You will notice a drastic
difference in your mood and productivity when you take care of your health!

Pick up a hobby
If you don’t feel mentally stimulated, pick up a hobby. Hobbies can help improve your brainpower
and can simply make you happy. Whether it’s drawing, picking up a sport, travel or another pastime,
a hobby will keep you engaged. In addition, a hobby can unleash creativity which manifests itself in
other parts of your life, perhaps even during work hours. The very reason people in retirement pick
up hobbies is to maintain their mental alertness. However, don’t wait until old age to pick a hobby.
Perhaps the hobby could even lead to a career change! There are benefits to trying out new activities
as it helps you grow as a person and boosts your mental capacity.

Get advice
Changing your life may require external help or advice. If you are stuck in a sad bubble and don’t
know what to do about it, it’s time to get someone’s opinion. Talk to your friends and family about
the next steps in your life. They can even help you sort through your future goals. In the event that
you suffer from trauma and substance abuse, you will require professional’s help to better your life.
Certain traumatic events can lead some people to turn to substance abuse as an escape, which is
where treatment facilities and professionals can help get to the bottom of the issue and offer the
best possible advice. The sooner you ask someone for help, the sooner you can get your life back
on track and focus on living your best life, one where you are healthy and happy.

Eliminate negativity
Negative people and negative thoughts will further affect your life. When it comes to negative
thoughts, it could be a result of larger issues such as stress or even depression. It’s up to you to
learn how to control your mind and deal with the situation at hand. Albeit, it’s not easy and requires
some practice, eliminating negative thoughts can be done. One great way to do so is by focusing
your attention on something else or learning to meditate. Meditation can help clear your mind when
it is full of a lot of thoughts. The second half of negativity can also come from the people you spend
your time with. The answer here is simple – stop spending your time with negative people. Surround
yourself with people that lift your spirits and make you smile. You will not enjoy your time if your
friends are rude or make you feel anything but happy.

The way you act will drastically affect the type of life you live. If you deal with most situations with
disdain and annoyance, the result of that situation will end the same way. Someone that is trying to
live their best life does not spend their time critiquing others or even being rude. What goes around
comes around, and a great way to change your life around is to be more kind if you are not already.
Kindness is an empowering act that can make someone’s day. Even in the workforce, people will opt
to work for a company that treats its employees well with good benefits and a kind company culture,
over one that makes them go home crying every day. Opt to be kind and surround yourself with kind
people, and your life will drastically change.

One factor that affects everything already mentioned is people’s determination. Nothing will change
if you don’t have the determination to make a change. You will not eat healthily, pick up a hobby,
think happy thoughts or be kind if you don’t have the will to do so. Thus one of the most important
ways someone can change their life for the better is to have the determination to do so. There is no
answer to how you will find this determination, as it will vary for everyone. You simply must come to
terms with wanting to live your best life and taking the steps to achieve it.

Everyone wants to live a happy and good life, but you must also put in the effort to achieve it. The
perfect life will not fall from the sky, the same way you will not maintain your health if you eat sugar
all day long. You must think about the kind of life you want to live and put in the time and
determination to pursue it. Remember, life is short and you should not let it pass you by. Start
taking the steps towards living your best life sooner rather than later.
