Life gets HARD sometimes. We've all felt it and it's hard to get motivated. I know I've been through many slumps myself and it can be extremely to pick yourself up and be happy sometimes. But hapiness is SooOoooO important. Life is way too short and days, weeks, years... They all just fly by.
I try to implement these 4 steps into my life as often as possible and I wanted to pass them on to you because if you make them part of your lifestyle, I think you can become a more productive, content and happy person.
1) Stop Procrastinating and Go After Your Goals.
You can spend hours procrastinating when it truly only takes you 2 minutes to start whatever you have to do. If you have a goal go for it! Turn off the TV, stop looking for excuses to do something else and just START WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. It doesn't necessarily mean you always have to finish, but people truly underestimate the power of just starting! It's a powerful thing! Once you start you're closer to what you need to finish.
2) Try Something New.
Life is too short to not Try Something New. Within the last few years, some things I did were skydive and swim with dolphins... Not saying that everything you have to do must be extreme but you get the point. Think of something cool to do like a dance classes or an open mic poetry. Push your limits and do something a little out of the ordinary. The experience will be rewarding.
3) Be Healthy and Eat Right.
Go to the gym regularly or work out at home. Also, cut back on the junk food and eat more lean food and add some vegetables. It's proven that people who are healthier feel better naturally. Get enough sunshine, do some yoga. Be active!
4) Make more time for YOU.
This one could tie in a little bit with #2, but when I say time for YOU I mean make sure you're sleeping right, read a book, listen to music, go out with your friends and have a coffee or a drink, go on dates, watch a movie, make time for you to do regular everyday things. If you feel like you're just work-work-working all the time, life is going to start feeling miserable. As long as you're still productive for a good amount of your day, there should be no problem to make a little time for YOU.
I hope these steps work out a bit for you. Take it a day at a time. Try to practice these into your lifestyle daily and I promise you will start feeling like a better you before you know it.
