At some point in our lives, we all ask ourselves “Is this what I really wanted from my life?” Are we feeling fulfilled by our daily routines or did we forget what it seemed to be truly happy? It is not easy to be pleased today when people aren’t satisfied with things they have. Rather, they always want more and more. We tend to look around trying to find something new and achieve it without stopping and truly enjoying every second of the given life. In the moments of depression or worry, we should know how to be happier every day. It may take practice, but it’s surely worth the effort. Here are the 12 tips on how to live more fulfilling life.
Live in the present moment
Making plans is normal, but try to create them in a certain period of time. For instance, when you sit down and focus, maybe in the evening. Spend the rest of the time enjoying the moment and breathing deeply. This will help you slow down a bit and feel pleased with everything you possess.
“The good life is that which succeeds in existing for the moment, without reference to past or future, without condemnation or selection, in a state of absolute lightness, and in the finished conviction that there is no difference therefore between the instant and eternity.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
Be what you truly are
Always discover yourself and remain true to yourself. Don’t ever try to be someone else because that will drain your energy and your enthusiasm in life.
Follow your dreams
Never give up on your dreams however impossible they achieving them might seem. Even if you don’t succeed, you will learn various lessons along the way which may help you afterward. Don’t delay or throw your dream away, just go for it!
You will enjoy relaxation afterward – but first, you have to work hard. And when you do, give your best, because it will pay off in one way or another. That way, when you sit in your chair exhausted in the evening, you will know you’ve had a productive and good day behind you.
You can’t make it until you take some risks, actually many risks. When you don’t risk at all, you will move in your comfort and security zone, but you won’t move forward. When you take risks, you will be worried and stressful, but you will also progress and benefit in many ways.
Compete only with yourself
Competing with others is exhausting, and you will make you forever dissatisfied. There will always be someone smarter, better, stronger, wealthier, etc. It is important for you to be the best of who you can be, but not to be the best in the world since this is probably impossible. Always try to be better than before and move forward in every single thing you are doing. That will enable your constant improvement, and you will surely be more satisfied.
Be grateful for everything you have
A happy person is pleased with the things he/she owns. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have any ambitions for the future. Rather, it means that you are pleased and that you enjoy your life at this exact moment. You should always focus on the good sides and the things you have, not the opposite.
Set a goal
Setting a goal in will help you greatly in accomplishing it. You will feel motivated while thinking about it and will always progress one step further towards it.
Be with people you love and appreciate
Spend your time with people you love. This will always matter more than anything else in the world. Try to make your friends and family happy, and be sure that happiness will be returned to you.
Don’t take everything in life too seriously. Sometimes, laugh for no reason, and you will surely feel better instantly. İt has been proven that laughing helps people feel better, even for no apparent reason.
Remember that there is no perfection
There isn’t a person who is satisfied in every aspect of their life. If you are looking for a perfection, you won’t be able to find it anywhere, and that will lead you to sure disappointment. Instead, focus on the fields where you achieve your maximum, and feel proud about it. There will always be something more to achieve, to have, to buy, so don’t be like those people who focus on their failures.
Don’t escape from your obligations
Spending much time in front of your TV, Computer, etc, won’t help you at all. This way your life might pass by you unnoticed. Go out and notice how some beautiful things are happening every day!
