One truth that we all know is that one day you will die. All of us will die at some point. And while it’s a sad truth, what’s sadder is that not everyone is able to make the most of their time on there.
According to a study, many people lay on their deathbed with regrets. Regrets about bad decisions they made in the past or living a life that someone else gave them. The list of regrets could go on for a while.
But the beauty of life is that you can still do something about it all.
Living Life to the Fullest
Lifehack’s CEO, Leon has written an article about how to live life to the fullest. Living life to the fullest comes down to improving the six aspects of your life:
- Physical health – eating better, exercising, strengthening yourself mentally too.
- Family and relationship fulfilment – the friends that we make and retain along the way.
- Work and career prosperity – having a job you love and encourages growth.
- Spiritual wellness – being able to tap into a world beyond logic.
- Mental strength – being able to focus, have drive and discipline.
- Wealth and money satisfaction – living within your means.
Having a balance of those six things is essential to living life to the fullest. However, life often demands more from us in order to achieve those things. At Lifehack, we teach people how to grow the following eight core skills in order to fulfil all the aspects of life:
- Self-empowerment – having motivation and confidence with what you want to achieve. Ensure your purpose is made clear and know how to stay positive in the moment of adversity.
- Self-control – setting clear goals and plans for yourself. Build constructive habits and routines that support these goals.
- Renewable vitality – being physically fit and healthy and getting proper sleep.
- Mastery over emotions – reframing negativity with positive actions you can take.
- Conscious communication – understand other people’s ideas and express and deliver thoughts and feelings clearly.
- Smart focus – completing tasks in the most effective and efficient manner you can.
- Learning and adaptability – you want to be able to learn and adapt to any knowledge or skill.
- Constructive thinking – having a clear and uncluttered mind.
Living life to the fullest is not easy, but as long as you keep in mind that one day you’re going to die, you will not waste another second in life. Though as human beings, we sometimes forget about what to live for when we’re too busy surviving. A gentle daily reminder would be nice for us all.
Your Gentle Reminder – One Day You’re Going To Die
We recently uncovered the company – more specifically a Youtube channel – OLOGY.
The purpose of the channel is to provide gentle reminders that one day you will die. But from that information, the channel is going out of its way to teach people about three core aspects: mindfulness, re-invention, and play.
From those aspects, it provides reminders to make every moment count for something. That everything that you are doing is progressing yourself in some way shape or form.
OLOGY is running a Kickstarter campaign that pledges to deliver pins, pendants, and visual wall art to remind people that life is fleeting and that it’s important to make the most of it.
The proceeds will be going towards this project to make it the best that it could be. And it’s had an overwhelming amount of support, raising over $22,000 at the time of writing this – having reached its target donation goal within the first five hours of it launching.
These three tools are simple but invaluable as the constant reminder that you will die will push you to make better decisions overall.
If you know that you will die eventually, it makes sense that you will strive to make the most of what you’ve got, to make smarter decisions about who you spend time with and what you’ll do every day. Having these little reminders only encourages that way of thinking.
Furthermore, these tools will be more helpful once the channel starts expanding and developing. Thanks to many people’s support for this, the Youtube channel will only grow and be able to provide invaluable information. Even if the content isn’t coming from trained professionals, the fact this information is coming from everyday people has a level of authenticity and relatedness to it.
If you also want a gentle reminder to seize every moment in life, back this campaign as these simple tools can help you now and in the future. They’re well worth the investment as the pendants, wall art, and pins are worth more than the donation you spent to receive them. Though you’ll need to be acting quickly as donations will close on February 1st, 2021.
If you want to learn more about OLOGY, take the time to watch some of the videos posted by this channel in the future. You’ll receive plenty of information on how to live a better life and to make every moment count.
