1. SAY “NO”
Saying “no” can be hard, but declining things that make your life more difficult will eventually feel good. It will also help you focus and understand what’s important to you. So, stand your grounds, and refuse to see people or do things you don’t like.
2. TRAVEL FREQUENTLY
Travelling will help you break away from everyday habits and allow you to view your life from a new angle. Can’t afford a lengthy vacation – don’t worry! Even small trips like a staycation or a day in the countryside is enough to charge your batteries and gain a new perspective.
3. PLAN YOUR FUTURE
Feel like your future is hazy or even a big question mark? Then we suggest you sit down and think about what you have and what you want. This will help make your wishes more tangible and actionable. Break them down to smaller goals and lists – then start fulfilling your dreams one step at a time.
4. GET RID OF THINGS YOU DON’T NEED
Take a look at your things. Surely, there’s a lot of stuff that you don’t use and probably never will. Liberate yourself and get rid of them! A good rule of thumb is to donate or throw away things you haven’t used in one year’s time. You will be surprised how freeing it feels!
5. ORGANISE YOUR WORK SPACE
An organised work environment (whether it’s at the office or at home) is less distracting and will help you focus on the task ahead. Already a clean-freak? Then go to town on your inbox to delete spam and unsubscribe to unnecessary email. The less distraction, the better!
6. CHERISH THE SMALL JOYS
As soon as you’ve finished one task or challenge, you’re straight onto the next. Sound familiar? Then you need to find time to stay in the moment – and enjoying it! Watch the sunset, play with your children, call your loved ones to just have a chat. Allow yourself a short break, and you will soon feel how life becomes easier and more enjoyable.
