Improving your life can seem a bit challenging at times, or like digging your way out of a hole in the sand – things seem to be working more against your favor than in your favor. If this is the case, you may be thinking too big. Read on to discover your balance in the wheel of life.
Choose a life design that can change your outlook, improve your health and make your life better. Below are six things you can do to be a better you. Granted some of them take some commitment, but try out a few of these and see if your uphill battles don’t get a little easier.
1. Join A Social Group – This could be a club, a sports team, or just a group of friends that like to hang out. Maybe go out to a different restaurant once a month. The important thing is having friends and putting some fun back into your life. It can even be a Facebook group.
Having friends improves our self-confidence, it gives us a network to help us deal with things like stress, or grief, and it even improves the immune system. All of these things also have secondary benefits. Probably because of the potential for lowering stress, people with strong and healthy social networks are more likely to maintain a healthy body weight and to live longer than those that don’t.
2. Learn A New Language – Learning a “Modern Language” like English, Spanish, French, German, or Chinese, can be practical in a business setting, or just while you’re walking around town. Learning any additional language, however, comes with a number of benefits, including helping you to learn and remember other things, and helping you to see things from a new perspective.
Some universities may let you audit classes on foreign languages, community centers may have classes in a foreign language that are open to the public, you may be able to find books on learning new languages at book stores or thrift stores near you, or you could download any number of free or cheap apps to learn another language on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer.
3. Change Jobs – If you hate your job and your company, you can read this as “quit your job and start your own company,” but you don’t have to. Entrepreneurship is not for the faint at heart. If you worked hard to get where you are and you like the work that you do, consider a lateral job change in your own company instead.
See if you can work in a different department for a bit, even if it’s just filling in for a position while someone is on vacation or while management is looking for someone to fill a permanent spot. Changing jobs provides a nice change of pace, it helps you understand your own abilities and versatility, and it helps you understand what the world looks like from someone else’s position.
4. Go To College – College is a unique experience where you get to meet new people in an institution specifically dedicated to learning and looking at new ideas.
Even if you’ve already been there, or you don’t want to stay for a four-year degree, many who have returned to college find that the experience is quite different from when they’ve last attended. You’ll have the opportunity to meet new friends and learn new things. Don’t be afraid to change and grow with the times.
5. Have Faith – For quite a while now, many experts have understood that having faith genuinely helps people in a number of ways. It gives us a sense of purpose. It makes us feel like we’re part of something larger than just ourselves. It encourages us to be understanding, forgiving, and generous. It makes our lives better and it makes us better people.
I’ve developed a personal relationship with God as I grew in the Christian faith. I have been in ministry in one way or another most of my life, starting with teaching Sunday school, to being a Life Coach Minister.
Yes, I’m a Christian but it’s not my job to dump a bunch of religion on you. As a matter of fact, true Christianity is not about being religious at all. One of the things that I do is to help people be free of binding and hurtful religious beliefs. This is an area that I have helped many people with in the past with scriptures on accountability.
Finding your purpose in God and spiritual accountability is my thing. Accountability equals dependability and success is our responsibility.
