Once in a while everyone has thoughts of changing their life or redesigning their current lifestyle to be happier.
Why do we have these thoughts? Where do they come from?
We believe that these thoughts come to our mind when we compare ourselves to others or when we do something we don’t like (job, tasks, commitments). Or perhaps living in the suburb area and wishing to live closer to the city instead or vice versa.
Since we were young we’ve been asked the same question all the time: “Who do you want to be when you will grow up?” The majority of boys would probably answer – a firefighter, a police officer, doctor. At the age of 15-20, you probably don’t have any idea what you like to do, and yet this is the time where you decide what you want to study based on what you see in your community or the internet.
Right now, If you would ask the same question to any student or anyone who is already in their late 20’s who already graduated, the majority will still don’t know what they want from their life. Perhaps you are in your late 30’s and still trying to find some sort of purpose in life? Well know this, you are not alone.
We gathered the top 5 tips to help you find your lifestyle and how to potentially change your life.
As we are right now in the third lockdown, you can now deliver almost anything to your home. Look for an online cocktail masterclass event and spend time with your partner learning new cocktails and bar tricks. Some of them are offering a delivery box with all the ingredients beforehand. If you know what you are doing, you can always go to a nearby grocery store and get all the ingredients and liquor yourself.
Sometimes it’s hard to find “what lifestyle I want”. However, there are ways to find it out by answering honestly to these questions yourself:
a) What did you love doing as a child?
b) What would you do if you won’t need to earn any more money?
c) What makes you angry?
Write your ideas down and you will discover yourself and what you love. Also remember this formula of purpose: “What you love and what you are good at + what others need = your purpose.” Now return to the first point and plan your next steps to make a change, because you already found the time in your routine when to do it.
Ask yourself what are the next steps you need to take to be closer to the life you want? Perhaps you need more education to make the next step? Maybe you need a qualification to progress in your job? Perhaps you need to make a connection to expand what you currently do? Maybe it’s just a simple phone call to your family member and organising a gathering?
Rome wasn’t built in a day. Everyone has a big vision, but it will take months and maybe years to get to it. It all depends on how big it is and what consistent steps you are taking every day. Remember that discipline and a consistent routine will make the best out of you. Your new endeavour will become a habit and will feel less like a chore and doing it consistently will add up within months. You will realise that you are now a more productive and happier person than yesterday. Always remember, lifestyle is not a destination, it’s a journey.
Stay motivated, push forward, and be inspired. Don’t chase too many goals at once. Pick one and stick to it. Also if the task seems too big, break it down into small subtasks, that way it won’t look too hard to accomplish. Surround yourself with people who will support you. Introduce your second half to your new routine and perhaps embrace it together. Join an online group or find other ways to connect with people looking for the same support as you. Nowadays it is easier more than ever to connect with someone anywhere in the world with technology. Keep your new tasks as a routine and we promise you, you will find more time in your schedule for “additional activities”.
As the title says you should always have a long-term goal in mind, otherwise you will feel like you are only sinking day after day. Having a goal in mind keeps you motivated and prevents turning into a squirrel in the wheel. Also, remember that this goal should always be a step ahead of you. This way you will never stop progressing, and will always be better than you were yesterday. Visualise it and live towards it.
It doesn’t have to be the trip around the world which you probably don’t have the funds to. A one day trip to the nearest town or hike with a backpack will already broaden your mind and will make you see more. Doing the same things in the same place over and over again will not make you wiser. Read our article why travel is important for you.
There are so many health benefits of having an active lifestyle. It doesn’t have to be long hours in the gym. You don’t have to spend your time in the gym at all, there are plenty of alternatives that you can squeeze into your daily schedule. For example, 20 minutes of full-body cardio every morning when you wake up. Just 20 minutes!
We are sure you heard the phrase before: “All the opportunities are outside your comfort zone”. And it is true. New connections, new skills, new experience – they are all outside your current lifestyle bubble. Embrace your fears and make the first step, what can go wrong?
You and only you are responsible for making your life happy. No one will present or give it to you on a platter. Everyone is busy with their routine and they only think about themselves first. It is time for you to start thinking about what you want. Don’t expect things to happen on their own, they won’t. You are the builder of your dream and only you can build it. Choosing your ideal lifestyle is on you, so don’t ask others. Of course, there will be people who will open the door, perhaps show the way, but you are the one who will be walking it.
