hey guys it's selah here from the blog team :)I’m sure you’ve heard people say so many things like “You only live once!” or “Live your life to the fullest!”. Even though this makes sense, it is hard to apply it to your life. I think most people would agree that going through the same old same old every day for the rest of your life sounds a little boring. Since it’s clear we don’t want that, how do we make life more enjoyable? It is different for everyone, but I can give you a few tips to start seeing your life through a new lens.
#1 LOOK FOR THE LITTLE THINGS
Sometimes when we are so focused on the bad things going on, we can overlook the little good things. There are always a few good things that you can find in your day if you know how to look for them. It might be something as simple as a good morning hug from a friend or family member, or a stranger holding the door open for you. You can also create little good moments in your life. You can be the one to hold the door open, or ask “how can I help?”, or write a short and spontaneous note saying how much you appreciate someone.
#2: TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
People are so busy that they sometimes forget to take care of themselves. It can look different for everybody, but taking care of yourself and cutting yourself some slack is crucial to enjoying your life. If you are always working and never appreciating how much you’ve accomplished, you will never be proud of yourself like you should be. Self-care can look like a face mask and a warm bath or sitting down and reading a book.
Last but not least, journaling. Journaling can be sooo helpful to get feelings out. Every day, write a short little journal entry and talk about what upset you and why it upset you, what was good about your day, and what you are thankful for. It has helped me so much to be able to let it all out and just be vulnerable for a few minutes.
I hope that I helped you learn a few things about how to enjoy your life! There might be things for each person that work better than others, but these are a few of my favorite tips. Love y’all!
