Changing your life, requires you to make changes in your daily life.
It doesn’t have to be grade sweeping life disrupting change, like moving to a new city, quitting your job, or ending/starting a relationship.
Changing your life is more impacted by the small things that you do every day. It’s staying on top of the dishes regularly, it’s going for a walk every day, it’s adding a fruit or vegetable to every meal, it is making your bed every morning, it’s meditating for 10 minutes every day. All of this tiny consistent changes begin to stack up.
Whatever it is in your life that your are unhappy about, begin by changing you and your habits. Start with the smallest thing and do it consistently until it becomes second nature, then move on to the next thing.
If you are unsatisfied with your life, take a deep look at what it is you do with your time. Are you prioritizing Netflix over tidying your spaces? Are you eating out more than you cook for yourself? Do you prioritize your work over your family? Are you on your phone instead of engaging with the people in the room with you?
What can you change about you?
It’s time that we stop looking at the world around, the people in our lives, and our workplaces as the reason why we are unhappy.
If you are not capable of making your bed everyday, exercising regularly, eating healthy foods, and giving attention to your loved ones, then that is where you need to start.
Intrinsic change is far more impactful than extrinsic changes. Believe me.
I have quit a job, moved to a new city, ended relationships, sold a business, quit social groups, all in the name of I’m unhappy and this thing outside of me MUST be the reason why.
In reality, I wasn’t capable of taking care of some of my basic needs. My home is always a mess, I rarely exercise, I eat convenience foods constantly, I avoid my family and friends and I hide in my house.
My problem isn’t my job or where I live. My problem is myself.
And that is where it all starts to change, is with me.
