Better You: A Short Guide to Self-Improvement
| Eva W
If you’ve found yourself in a rut and you’re looking to progress forwards, it might be time to make some changes to your schedule and lifestyle. Self-improvement is never easy but, with the right strategies, it is possible - here are some areas for your consideration.
Statistics show that 35.2% of Americans sleep on average less than seven hours per night, which is below the recommended amount. If you’ve been feeling fatigued, anxious or unmotivated, a change to your sleeping habits could help shift your mentality. Start by reducing exposure to screens at least 2-3 hours before bed - a book or a physical activity like knitting will reduce any disruptions caused to our circadian rhythm. You can also try to ascertain your optimum sleeping temperature (this is usually between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit) and use fans, AC, blankets, etc. to simulate this.
Whether you’re boundlessly happy or going through a sour patch, your living space can often come to reflect your headspace and vice versa. For this reason, taking pride in your environment is an important step towards self-improvement. Start by removing clutter, organizing your possessions, and cleaning thoroughly (using the right products and tools). You may also find exploring new aromas can help to cleanse bad energy, changing the ambiance and, in turn, your mindset.
When the human body is composed of roughly 60% of water, it’s baffling that we think so little about how much of it (and the quality) we put in our bodies. If you’re not already, it could be worth taking some time to learn about reverse osmosis and the available countertop products that can increase the mineral content of your daily drinking water. With just one key purchase, you can reduce contaminants and enjoy safer, more beneficial H2O - contributing to a healthier, happier you.
For many of us, it’s our jobs that hold us back from reaching our potential. When you’re sinking hours into a career you’re not entirely passionate about, you may find you don’t have much time for anything else. Luckily, switching lanes is easier than ever - remote learning means you can pick up new qualifications and skills without having to travel to classes. You can also use a resume builder to create a stellar-looking portfolio with minimal effort, building on templates and adding your own copy, photos, colors, and images.
If you want to grow as a person, it’s important to surround yourself with people who inspire growth. This is easier said than done but a good first step is often to identify any negative influences in your life and work to distance yourself from these. As we get older, it’s common for our friendship circles to get smaller, and certainly when it comes to self-improvement, less can be more. If you’re unsure of where to meet the right people, it may be a good idea to leverage social media, joining groups that are centered on mutual interest or on personal growth.
When it comes to self-improvement, simplicity is key. Focus on what you want to achieve and try to nourish some of the areas mentioned here to facilitate the achievement of your goals. If you can spend just a little time each week tending to the previously neglected areas of your life, you’ll feel generally more positive and equipped to handle life’s challenges.
