Ever feel like no matter how hard you try or how much you seem to be doing, its just never enough?
Your always after that next big thing whether it be a new car, house, holiday escape etc.. which is fine because it gives you something to be excited about and a reason to why you are working so hard all the time.
Remember to be careful. You see, we live in a society of always wanting more and if we are not careful or aware, we fall into the trap of wanting that next big thing for all the wrong reasons and it can eventually drive us into a place of deep unhappiness and unfulfillment. It puts us in a state where no matter what we end up having, it will never be enough because there will be always someone else you know who has more and it can become toxic, stressful, and mentally draining over time.
Now don’t get me wrong, wanting more in your life can be a really good thing and there is nothing wrong with it. In fact, it can be the key to being happy, content, and successful in your life.
It’s when you start to feel like you have to have that next materialistic thing because someone else has it and until you get it, your not going to be good enough, happy, or content with your life. That’s when it becomes a problem.
if you’ve read this far, I thank you and promise you won’t be disappointed because I am about to let you in on the 3 things that personally changed my life when it came to overcoming the stress and worry that was really having a huge negative effect on how I was living my life! Before I let you in on these 3 things though, I want you to develop a perspective that after all we are only human and stress is only natural. It’s about managing it when it does come along so you can reduce it and therefore live a much happier and fulfilled life! Hope these can help you abundantly !
- Focus your attention on things that only you can control in your life. This will free you up a lot from wasted and bad energy as you will find that most things that happen to you in your life you cannot control. Simply do and bring your best with what you can control and leave the rest up to fait. This will make you a lot more happier I promise !
- Exercise on a regular Basis. I know this one sounds simple but believe me when I say it can change your life in so many positive ways. Have you ever noticed how good you feel the moment you finish up a run, gym, or training session? It’s because when you exercise your body releases a whole heap of dopamine and serotonin which scientists call “the happy drug”. There are hundreds of case study’s proving the countless studied benefits of what exercise can do to not only make you happier and think clearer but help those who also suffer from anxiety and depression as well!
- Smile and do good deeds for others. Just By smiling our subconscious brain automatically takes us to a much happier feeling and state believe it or not! And in doing good for others, not only will it take your focus off yourself and what may be happening to you on a particular day but it will also make you feel a large amount of pride and joy for having a real impact on someone else’s life therefore doing just as much good for you as it is for them ! Everyone wins and is a lot happier from this at the end of the day.
