Living A Simple Meaningful Life. Part One.

Taking care of personal health

Healthy lifestyle is an essential thing in life. A healthy lifestyle equates to healthy living. It focuses on physical and mental well-being, increases energy levels, and makes people feel good about themselves. So, focus on,

Developing a good routine

Each day is a unique opportunity to learn and improve ourselves. To start the day with a good routine counts for the value of your time in your life, motivates you to stay organized, focused on yourself, and practice healthy habits. It increases growth and productivity in life.

Breath Consciously

Breathing is the sign of life, the act of living, and the function of exchanging gases. Post-Pandemic, it is high time to learn the value of each breath we take, each moment we live without any life-support. So please spare a moment to acknowledge and feel this beautiful gaseous exchange; it does not mean you need to be in a white dress, clean environment, and breath in free air. All it takes is a moment of consciousness to observe the so-called involuntary movements of our lungs, diaphragm, and airflow through the body. It is possible to do this when you are waiting for a bus, traveling, in a queue, or a moment before you sleep. Practice observing deep breathing and the process of respiration and see the magic of our body relaxing and regulating stress.

To Eat Mindfully

In the ticking hours of life, where time is money and money is life, we tend to forget to eat or at least rush through the process of eating, we behave as if it is the most time-consuming deed which fetches us nothing but some calories, but the reality has far gone faded in the absence of our mindfulness in eating.

A Good Night’s Sleep

The difficulties we face the next day of our improper and incomplete night’s sleep. Proper sleep of seven to eight hours each night is necessary for humans. It is equally important to take a nap or sleep or rest, the most required break for the physical body to function normally. Hence it is pivotal to improve the quality of your sleep by reducing your caffeine consumption late in the day, taking a melatonin supplement, or relaxing in a warm bath or shower before bedtime. And to make sure you have adequate rest before you start a new day.

Wake up Early

Since ancient times, it has always been advised to wake up early to improve your productivity and quality of life. When you wake up early, you will have time to dedicate to self-development, adding extra time during the day to soak up the morning tranquillity and absorb the early morning sunlight before the pollution sets in. It will help your brain switch into its active mode. Set up an alarm or make a wake-up buddy and make sure the mornings are fresh and clean.

To have an Exercise Routine

The importance of routine physical exercise goes without saying. A better self of us starts with a healthy body as it is the means to attain the physical forms and tasks.

To-do list

Setting a to-do list and starting the day with these lists of work to be done has helped me stay focused and finish the task in time without forgetting or delaying. The days I have not set the to-do list have turned out to be chaotic, cumbersome, and unproductive. In my experience, a to-do list helps me plan my day, allot a certain amount of time to a particular task, and handle it hassle-free.

Cultivate a New Habit

Starting a new habit is equally vital for personal growth. Good habits are to be taught from childhood but start at any age until it is yielding to improve oneself. Reading a book, waking up early, exercising, and meditating are good habits with no age barrier.

To quit a bad habit

As discussed on several platforms, continuing on a bad habit would deteriorate our quality of performance. So personal advice is to work on eliminating the practice of these despite the difficulty of unfollowing. Bad habits sometimes can also include oversleeping, binging, drinking, smoking, or even procrastinating. If found difficult to withdraw yourself from them, find comfort in reaching out to helpers and healthcare consultants.

Reduce screen time

No doubt our lives revolve around gadgets, screens, and apps but detaching ourselves from these tempting attractions would take a long way in improving ourselves. These not only affect our health by affecting our eyes and nerves but also kill our productive time. This time could be better utilized on self-improvement activities or in cultivating a new habit, a new course, making a new friend, and discovering our neighbors and surroundings.

Try a Digital Detox

It is very much appreciated if we can unplug for even a tiny amount of time, which will benefit our well-being. When you are with actually have nothing to do, instead of logging into social media, try to step away from your phone for at least a few hours. Instead, try walking and talking to family members, most importantly connecting with your thoughts.

Greeting

Although it sounds crazy to wish and greet everyone who passes your path daily, that communicates a lot about the individual and his effort to acknowledge every passer-by. It will help us know people around us, and in doing so, you will notice yourself feeling more present and connected to those around you, even if you don’t have a close relationship with them.

Get into Action

The best way to improve yourself is by action. Rather than living in imaginary thoughts, it’s always better to live the world of action, live your thoughts, take action, and try doing what you always have thought of doing. It will surely help us return to our inner self, reconnect internally to our thoughts, act according to our deep-seated wishes, and work towards our dreams.

Clean up

Let it be even a small line of dirt or dust; it’s always better to keep your place of work and home clean. Try to spend some time alone cleaning your own space. How you feel about your home can influence whether your time there is stimulating or stressful. So try to clear your desk, clean your mirror or arrange your kitchen, do it mindfully and keep it accessible and clean. Reward yourself by taking some time to enjoy your refreshed space — do a face mask in your newly clean bathroom, for example.
