15 Signs You’re Still Enjoying Your Youth

15 Signs You’re Still Enjoying Your Youth

Being youthful means you are experiencing a time of vigor, energy and zeal. Through this period of transition we learn a lot and discover ourselves in so many amazing ways. As a youth you live your life through moments and sometimes get lost in them. Being a youth means happiness and laughter. It is never about your age or your gender or even your marital status, being a youth is more of a mindset rather than a form. I have met 15 year old boys living like old men, and I have met 65 year old men who live like 19 year olds. This is how to know you are still enjoying your youth.

1. You follow your heart

You don’t care about what people say. You love the adventure, the risk, and the fire of life. You want to have a taste of new things and nobody can stop you.

2. You live in the moment

It is not about making plans for retirement or seeking to get stuck in a particular place. You live in the moment. You are in the present and not in the future.

3. You love yourself just as you love where you are

You are not uncomfortable in your body or feel out of place with your appearance. Just as you have the energy to focus on your surroundings, you also have the same with yourself.

4. You have companions who have the same opinion

Married people have married people as friends and rich people have rich people as friends. People who are enjoying their youth have the same type of people as friends.

5. You keep to fewer rules

The older you are or become, the more rules or boundaries you have to limit yourself to. But this is not so for the youth – they live life with fewer rules.

6. You have a burst of emotions

As a youth you find it difficult to manage and deal with all the emotions; from love to anger to fear and worry, it all keeps rolling at you and you just roll with them too.

7. You follow the fads other youths are following

Enjoying your youth means you dress like one who is enjoying his/her youth. Your dress and fashion style is the same with the fashion trend for youths.

8. You enjoy alcohol and being with women

Being a youth comes with so much energy and excitement. Alcohol and women sort of adds to the excitement and the pump.

9. You are focused on the memories

It is not about the mistakes or the regrets; you are focused on having new experience and establishing memories.

10. You cannot spot differences

You cannot spot differences between yesterday and today or possibilities and impossibilities. You are so consumed with the moment you do not consider these things.

11. You have so many dreams

You do not know what you really want, you are not specific. You want to be a chef, a dancer, a basketball player, a comedian and a politician all at once.

12. You do not even know the time

You rarely check the time, because it doesn’t serve you much purpose. It is like every day is endless and is simply a continuation from the previous day.

13. You are innocent

With enjoying your youth comes innocence. You are really not an expert on a lot of things. In fact you are only an expert on few things, such as the kind of alcohol that will trigger more excitement. You really don’t have a concrete answer to many things; you just live with what others offer.

14. You are being taken care of

Enjoying your youth doesn’t mean responsibility. You will always have someone there who is interested and who takes care of you, your friends, your love…

15. You are free

It is about mental freedom. You are free with your senses and mind. It is about imagination, it is about discovering you in the process.

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

1. Spend Time with Positive People

If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

3. Contribute to the Community

One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

Some recommendations for you:

5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

8. Offer Compliments to Others

Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

10. Practice Self-Care

Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
