20 Self Improvement Tips That Will Make Your Life Better
20 Life Changing Tips:
“Work on yourself more than you do on your job.” – Jim Rohn
I’m a HUGE fan of self improvement because I love the learning aspect. Life is so much more fun this way.
So, I’ve come up with list of tips that you can use in your life that I use and love in mine.
Create a meal plan. Plant your meals ahead of time and you’ll stick to your health goals!
Stop eating fried food. Fried food makes you feel awful for 24 hours. You’ll feel better if you can cut it out.
Don’t go more than 3 days without exercising. Exercising gives you energy, helps relieves stress, and helps you get fit.
Eat minimal dairy. If you have a sensitive stomach, try cutting out dairy. For some people this can eliminate digestive problems.
Cut out one of the following: soda, coffee, alcohol, or sugar. If you could cut all these, even better (but I would think you are a superhero)!
Get enough good sleep. This may be 5.5 hours or it may be 8 hours – whatever it is for you, make sure you get it!
Make sure you get enough Vitamin C and D. Both of these can impact your health in a positive way if you get enough. Check with your physician as to which vitamins he/she recommends.
Drink enough water every day. A good rule of thumb is to divide your body weight by 2 and that’s how many ounces you should drink.
Keep track of your annual, routine doctor appointments and don’t miss any. Put a recurring reminder on your calendar for things like dental checkups, skin checks, and physicals so you don’t miss any.
Subscribe to one health blog. Learn about healthy living as a lifestyle a little every day. Try Coaching Connector to get a list of 10 blogs you might like.
Do work that you LOVE. This will make every day fly by. You’ll be happier and content with your life. Don’t give up until you find it.
Quit your job if you hate it. Life is too short to spend it doing something you hate.
Find ways to work from home. There are so many ways you can make money from home. If you can with your full time job, that’s great.
Dress for the job you want. It pays to be well dressed for the job you want. People will see you in that roll.
Remember that likeability matters to work. There are studies that show likability is one of the most significant factors in getting hired and promoted.
Take constructive feedback positively. This can help you grow and become better at your job.
Give praise to people you work with. Doing this publicly will make people feel appreciated, and they’ll like you more for it!
PERSONAL / SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT
Don’t be too busy “doing” to think, explore, and experience life. Practice minimalism. Guard your time. Set boundaries. Make sure you have room to reflect on how you want to live.
Find a way to express gratitude daily. This is one small way to be happier every day.
Get comfortable saying “NO”. If you don’t , other people will decide the course of your life.
