Steps to Help you Live 100 years
For most people, living happier or living longer seem like completely separate sections of life. Some of us might think about making it to 90 or even 100 years old. On the other hand, some we might be thinking about how to just feel happier from day to day. What most people do not realize is that living happier and living longer can go together hand in hand. Here are 6 simple tips that you can apply right away to make your life happier and help you be healthier.
Do not start smoking or break your already existing smoking habit if you have one. It is never too late to quit smoking. Quitting will have immediate impacts on your health and help you live longer. Your mood might not be the best directly after quitting, but you will notice a huge difference in your happiness in the long run.
Growing up, we’re all told to never give up or never quit! These sayings are the furthest things from useful advice. Quitting isn’t so bad sometimes. It could be quitting your terrible job, giving up on a terrible relationship, or ending a project that isn’t going anywhere. Some people know exactly when it’s time for a change and other don’t. Don’t fret about it though, we’re here to give you some useful tips.
You need to stop underestimating yourself
Being successful always involves being confident. Sometimes all it takes is being and showing that you’re confident to get that job you’ve been wanting or getting that important promotion in your company. You need always think “I CAN!” instead of “I can’t”. Believe in yourself!
Stop delaying things
Life isn’t always easy. As a matter of fact, it is hard A LOT. When the going gets tough it’s easy to put things off until tomorrow, next week, next month, even next year. Telling yourself that you will do it tomorrow is just a way for you to get out of it without feeling as bad. To get results you have to work for them, so do what you need to do today!
Being consistent isn’t always the best
They say practice makes perfect. Well it does make perfect, but perfect at what? If you’ve been doing the same thing over and over again without getting results, then it might be time to consider a change. Even if making a change is going to be hard for you, do it. You’ll thank yourself somewhere down the road whether it be tomorrow or later on.
Things don’t happen on their own
Telling ourselves that everything will be okay is an easy way out to make ourselves feel better, and sometimes that’s okay. However, thing’s don’t end up okay on their own. You have to make them work out as best as you possibly can. You have to take action and make the things you want to happen real. Don’t expect a promotion without asking for one, don’t expect a better relationship without dealing with the problems in it, don’t expect people to treat you better if you don’t bring it to their attention. Your life is what you make it.
It’s better to say “no” sometimes
Every time you say yes to something, you are giving up something else. Research shows that people who have more trouble saying no to things end up being more stressed and unhappy. When you learn to stop saying yes to things that you can’t take on, then you’ll find yourself with more free time for your existing responsibilities and other things that are important to you.
