You only have a short time on this Earth to live your life. Although it feels like time moves very slowly when we are younger, we realize that as we age, it seems like time will not stop. Each year goes by faster than the last and it’s hard to soak in all of the precious moments that we are creating because we are so focused on work, school, or other more challenging aspects of our life. We need to cut this out and instead, focus on what is in front of us. This is hard to do because we live in a world that is so centered around work, social media, and technology, but it is possible. If you want to know how you can live your life to the fullest, keep reading!
Let go of bad vibes
Say no to negativity and focus on happiness, love, and healthy relationships. Huffington Post says: “We’re attracted to negativity because it entertains us, and it does so by allowing us to delight in misfortune — a thing no one would bother doing if they were happy. It’s not that happy people walk around in bubbles of ignorance; they just know what a mess of self-loathing is involved with all that outwardly projected hate and they avoid it by not participating — which makes them seem uninteresting.” All this does is drag us down and make us unhappy. Let’s find a way to spread positive and happy vibes, to make ourselves and the rest of the world a happier place!
Don’t let anyone hold you back
I cannot stress this enough – do not let anyone hold you back from doing what you want to do. Do not let their fears get in the way of your success when it comes to a happy life. If you want to jump off a cliff in Jamaica, do it. Don’t let someone tell you that there could be a shark waiting for you. If you want to skydive, do it. A lot of the time, people hold you back because they are jealous. With social media being in the front of our lives, people constantly play ‘keeping up with the Jones’’ in everyday life now. Ignore those telling you no, or giving you horror stories, and do what you want to do, when you want to do it.
There are so many unique opportunities for you out there and the only way you will get to experience them is by saying yes. A lot of the time, saying yes will get you out of your comfort zone and that is a good thing, in my opinion. According to Forbes, “Fear is a valuable thing. It keeps people safe and encourages caution when caution is due. But it’s also a limiting thing: Not everything you’re afraid of deserves fear or caution. And sometimes, moments of bravery are what is needed to make your life better.” Saying yes opens more doors for you, creates a more fulfilling and colorful world for you to live in, and it also promotes positivity in your life and others’ lives around you.
Take care of your body
Just like we only have one life, we only have one body and if we do not take care of it starting at a young age, we will pay for it in the future. This means: eating healthy, working out, getting sun, drinking enough water, limiting sugar (especially artificial!), drinking less caffeine, keeping up with appointments, and more. I once heard that your mouth is the starting point for health. If you don’t take care of your teeth and gums, you are failing your entire body. If you are by me, Metro Decatur Dental Group PC is the go-to dentist! Dr. Simms is not only gentle but cares about you as a whole. They offer cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and general dentistry, as well. They have a state-of-the-art office, offering safe dental treatments, so if you need wisdom teeth removal in Decatur GA, you can rest easy knowing they have you covered.
Do what you love
When it comes down to it, the only way you will live life to the fullest is by doing what you love. That is what it all stems to. Gone are the days when you have to sit at a desk for 10 hours straight, to pay your bills. While I believe technology can put stress on our lives, I also think there is a huge benefit to using it daily. There are so many ways to work remotely now and I believe that everyone should take advantage of them. Businesses do better when their employees are happy and employees are most comfortable when they have the freedom to do what they want and need in life.
Put down your phone
Put that phone down and focus on the moment that is in front of you. Being a blogger is very hard, but when I do it successfully, I have found that I am less stressed, create better memories, and I have enjoyed my day more than when I constantly video my day. Having our noses on our phones (looking at other people’s days), is limiting how great our day can be and we are not forming the connections with our family and friends like we used to. Put the phone down and spend much-deserved time with your people.
