20 Pictures Of Small Tips To Live A Satisfying Life

What does it mean to live a satisfying life? It means living a life in balance. It means making sure that your emotional, mental, physical, and social needs are taken care of.

Daily Health Gen has come out with 20 small tips to help you live a satisfying life. Take a look and implement some of the following tips to your life.

1. Try to Make At Least Three People Smile Each Day.

Real happiness comes from helping others and showing kindness. When you make other people smile, you make yourself smile. Plus, would you rather surround yourself with happy people or grumpy people? Surrounding yourself with happy people makes you feel good, so start making people around you smile.

    2. Sit in Silence for At Least 10 Minutes Each Day.

    Your mind has been working hard for you the whole day at school, at work, or at home. Give them a break during the day. Taking a moment off your busy schedule not only helps you be more productive, but it also helps your mind process what happened during the day. Also, take a look around you and admire how beautiful the world is – it will make you happier.

      3. Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously.

      Don’t be too hard on yourself. Have a sense of humor. Humans makes mistakes. No one is perfect, so give yourself permission to make mistakes. Making mistakes might make you look bad in front of others, but it also makes you human too. Others will relate to that, so laugh it off instead.

        4. Dream More While You Are Awake.

        Dreaming gives you inspirations. All the things we enjoy now, such as electricity and airplane flights, are a result of someone else’s dreams. Someone has to conjure up an idea before the idea can be executed. Since most people don’t remember the dreams they had when they are asleep, why not dream during the day when you are awake?

          5. You Don’t Have to Win Every Argument.

          Most bad relationships are a result of arguments. Why do you have to win every argument? Winning an argument doesn’t make you or the other party happier. There is usually no right or wrong, just a difference in perception. Looking at the other person’s point of view and understanding where they are coming from doesn’t mean that you have to agree with them. It’s more important to show the other party that their view is valued.

            6. Spend Time with People Over the Age of 70 and Under the Age of 6.

            These two groups of people have different perspectives towards life. People over the age of 70 have a lot of experience and wisdom. Ask them to share what they have learned, so that you can apply these important lessons to your life. People under the age of 6 are innocent and happy. They don’t hang on to grudges. Learn how they let go of their emotions so quickly and you’ll be happier.

              7. Don’t Waste Your Precious Energy on Gossip.

              Your energy is better spent on yourself. Why waste your energy listening to things about other people that may not be true? Gossip doesn’t add value to your life. If you want to satisfy your curiosity, use your energy to learn and improve yourself instead. Read books and listen to inspirational talks or podcasts.

                8. Life Is Too Short to Waste Time Hating Anyone.

                You can spend the rest of your life hating someone, but that doesn’t mean that person will change. In fact, the other person may not even know that you hate them or realize that they have done something wrong. Get rid of those ill feelings towards them. Learn how to forgive. It will give you so much more freedom.

                  9. What Other People Think of You Is None of Your Business.

                  You can’t control what other people think about you. Your business is what you think of yourself. You can work on how you think about yourself. If people think negatively about you, but you have a strong self-worth, you won’t get affected. However, if you don’t think highly about yourself, no matter how other people praise you, you will still feel that you aren’t good enough.

                    10. Sleep for 8 Hours a Day.

                    Getting adequate sleep gives you energy and attention for the next day. Sleeping helps to repair the damage you have done on your body during the day. It also enhances the consolidation of your memory. Be certain to get enough sleep and make sure your sleep is uninterrupted.

                      11. Smile and Laugh More.

                      Endorphins are released when you smile. They make you feel happier and less stressed. Laughing helps you release emotions that have been bottling up inside. When you smile and laugh, you will attract other positive people to smile and laugh with you. That will help you to bond with other people easier and make you feel even better.

                        12. Forget Issues of the Past.

                        When couples argue, they like to bring issues of the past into their argument, making the argument worse. Learn to let go issues of the past go. It’s not fair to judge your partner with the mistakes they made in the past. Both of you should focus on the current situation or problem, and come up with a solution to resolve it.

                          13. Drink Plenty of Water.

                          Water keeps you hydrated. It is essential for the circulation of nutrients in the body. It also helps to flush out toxins, waste, and bacteria through sweat and urine. Furthermore, drinking water makes you feel refreshed and improves your moods.Therefore, it’s extremely important to drink at least 2 litres of water per day.

                            14. Read More Books Than You Did Last Month.

                            Most people read for two main reasons – pleasure or knowledge. Knowing your purpose for reading helps you read more books. It will help you select books you are attracted to read and eliminate books that you don’t need to read. Reading books also help you reduce stress. You either lose yourself in great stories or find solutions to your problems in books.

                              15. No One Is In Charge of Your Happiness Except You.

                              You are 100% responsible for your life. If you are unhappy, it’s up to you to do something about it. Don’t wait for other people to make you happy. Other people might not know what makes you happy or how to make you happy. More importantly, you can’t control other people’s behaviors. You can only control yours, so take charge of your happiness.

                                16. Your Job Won’t Take Care of You When You Are Sick. Your Friends Will.

                                Good friends are always there to support you and lift you up. They provide different perspectives to your life. Staying in touch with your old friends reminds you of where you came from. It’s difficult to keep up with everybody’s life, but schedule a time and plan something to catch up with your old buddies. It’s rewarding to listen to their stories.

                                  17. Call Your Family Often.

                                  Family is important. It’s your origin. It’s what shapes and defines you growing up. You can always count on your family during good and bad times. Even though you may be busy and have a very different focus in life from your family, call them regularly and find out how they are doing. A call to your mom and dad means a lot to them.

                                    18. No Matter How You Feel, Get Up, Dress Up, and Show Up.

                                    Woody Allen said, “Showing up is 80 percent of life.” When you make a commitment to yourself or a New Year resolution, show up and do what you promise to do. There will always be times when you don’t feel like doing what you promise. However, if you don’t show up, nothing you desire will get done.

                                      19. Take 10 – 30 Minutes to Jog Every Day.

                                      If you sit in front of the computer most of your waking hours, try to schedule 10 – 30 minutes each day to move your body. Jogging is a good exercise. It helps you to strengthen your muscles and improve your cardio. Plus, it helps your mind too. Exercise boosts your confidence, helps you concentrate, and relaxes your body tensions.

                                        20. Make Time to Practice Meditation, Yoga, and Prayer.

                                        Meditation, yoga, and prayer can help calm your mind and deal with anxiety. It can help you get centred and listen to your inner voice with better clarity. Sometimes, you get too busy and forget to breathe. Practicing these activities will focus your breathing and help you relax the body and the mind.

                                          Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

                                          Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

                                          The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

                                          If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

                                          The Need for Change

                                          Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

                                          Advertising

                                          We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

                                          Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

                                          This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

                                            Signs It’s Time to Redefine

                                            “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

                                            So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

                                            Advertising

                                            In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

                                            “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

                                            The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

                                            Advertising

                                            When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

                                              Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

                                              And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
