You weren’t born to be so tired!
It’s honorable and all. You’re very strong, but there is a better way to life.
I know! I’ve been there – Worn out every day, tired…. just so tired!
Then I woke up and realized that I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life this way.
So, I stopped punishing myself and started living! Here’s how I did it:
1. Get Your Relationships in Order:
When you don’t have peace in your relationships, you won’t have peace in your life.
So forgive the people who have hurt you, ask forgiveness from the people you have hurt and move on! Life is too short to have animosity towards others and for others to have animosity towards you.
Just let it all go. Find the best in people. Surround yourself with happy people and enjoy your life! Make it a habit to make peace!
2. Stop Spending:
I hate being broke! Seriously… Wondering whether or not you can pay bills, working tirelessly just to get by and stressing out over finances is miserable! So, stop spending! Make it fun to save. Set a savings goal per week.
Whether it be $20 or $300, it really doesn’t matter as long as your saving.
You don’t need the Starbucks, the new shoes, the snacks and all the unnecessary purchases you make every day! You really don’t!
Reward yourself after you have saved a large sum of money, never spend half of your savings and make smart purchases.
It’s better to have money in your pockets then to have spent all your money on nice jeans! Make savings a habit you enjoy!
3. Stay Busy:
If you ever say “I’m bored” then you need to get busy! There is always something that you can do!
Wash your car, straighten your tupperware, work on perfecting your skill set, read a book….
Do anything productive! So many people fall into a slump because they become inactive.
It’s hard to get out of that slump once you’ve gotten used to being sedentary. So get into the habit of keeping yourself busy!
4. Stop Complaining:
Complaining doesn’t make the situation better; it doesn’t make you happy and it certainly doesn’t add any value to your life.
So, just stop complaining. Find something to be grateful for. The world has become a lot smaller, due to the connections being made via technology. Now more than ever, we are exposed to the reality of third world countries conditions.
Because of this exposure, I am always reminding myself that others have it way worse than I do.
We are blessed! Make it a habit to be grateful every day!
I have heard that the best way to pull yourself out of depressions is by giving to others. Whether it be time or resources, a hug or a smile, purposeful giving will help you develop a sense of purpose.
So, make it a habit to give, to add value to other people’s lives however you can!
