No one can be perfect. But surely there are ways you can be a better version of yourself. Apart from the long term behavior changes, there are some quick ways to be instantly fresh mentally and physically.
The first thing you need to do is to love yourself. No one can love anyone completely and wholeheartedly if he has not learned to love himself. The basic thing to start off with is to love yourself; your body, your soul, your heart. No matter in which condition you find yourself in, you need to love yourself. Only then you can embrace the world and love your life to fullest.
2. Understand your self worth and never compromise
Never. You deserve much more than you think. Never settle for less. That does not mean you are allowed to become rude or proud. But you should set your standards according to your worth. Never compromise your self respect. It is better to be respected than to be loved. Self esteem should not be degraded ever.
3. Appreciate what you have
Only then you will be content and happy. There is no end to running after worldly things or happiness. Learn to appreciate what you have. Learn to cherish what’s in the moment. Let go of what has happened in past and what would happen in future. Live in present. Appreciate the things you have, the people around you before they are gone. Be thankful for what you have now. You will get even more. But if you will keep thinking and running after what you do not have or others have, that’s an endless chase.
4. Learn to let things go
Whatever is not in your control, stop worrying about it. There is nothing you can do about it. There are things that are in circle of your no control. So you cannot do anything except letting go. That’s a must for inner peace and contentment. Sometimes it hurts more to hold on than to let go. That’s one time pain and then moving on. Learn to let go of the things that are not meant for you.
5. Take care of yourself
You must take care of your beautiful self. Maybe your body isn’t in perfect shape but it’s yours. You need to own it. Maybe your soul is dead, but you need to keep it alive for your own self. You need to take care of yourself. Only then you can get your dream job, your dream house or spouse. You need to take care of yourself so that you can take care of others well. You need to be very kind and polite to yourself. Do not be harsh; as you are your best friend and will always be.
Good Day! 🙂
