Ok, so there’s no denying it, we definitely do make our lives harder for ourselves. One minute we’re rushing around doing one thing, the next we’re having a mental breakdown over something else. It’s the cycle of life that is being a human being… or is it? Of course it isn’t. There are so many little shortcuts in life that you could use, that could easily help make your life so much easier. Even if it only means making the smallest of changes to the way that you live your life at the minute, you could still make it that little bit easier.
Our top tips are going to follow this introduction, but first we want you to think about whether it’s the things in your life that are making it harder, or whether it’s just you making your life harder. If you always have people telling you, ‘you’re always working!’, or ‘you’re always out and about you are!’. Then you might need to take a look in the mirror and consider whether you’re the reason your life is so hard in the first place. If it is, then don’t worry, we’re going to solve that for you too!
An easier life is coming your way if you read the tips we’ve got for you below.
Don’t Be Materialistic
Being materialistic means that you’re more concerned with the physical comforts in life, rather than thinking about the things that truly matter. For example, if you had the chance to choose between being given a new Gucci handbag, or a free day out with your friends, you’d chose the Gucci handbag if you were a materialistic person. You prefer the fancy things, and the fancy life, rather than learning to take things slow. In fact, being so materialistic is one of the reasons why we end up living such an expensive lifestyle.
Yes, it’s nice to be able to drive around in nice cars, wear nice new clothes, and to generally just do what we want all of the time, but life just isn’t easy this way. Take something that we all can’t live without it seems, the humble mobile phone. If there’s one thing out there that has absolutely changed everything, it’s our mobile phones.
We literally do everything from them, but what’s the one big mistake we all make with them? It’s that we spend the most on them. We pay a contract of so much a month, and that doesn’t change, even though the cost of the phone does. It’s a total rip off, so why not think about a SIM only offer. You buy the phone, or keep the phone you have at the end of your current contract, and then you just pay for the SIM. It’s just so much easier and beneficial to do this. Your finances will feel better, and you won’t feel as though you’re being mugged off. So, to conclude this paragraph, we would just like to urge you to let go of things a little. Don’t focus on your next item to buy, focus on your next experience to have.
Life might pass you by without you being able to explore all of the wonders that it has to offer.
What Happens When You Look In The Mirror?
Some of you might say a high pitched scream, but then you really wouldn’t be doing yourself justice, would you. If you look in the mirror, it might tell a thousand stories as to why your life is just so damn hard at the minute. Remember back to the days where you used to come home from school, get a bowl of cereal of tasty food, and sit on the sofa and watch TV until you felt the need to have a nap, or go and paint your nails?
Those were the days, are we right!? But, who’s to say that your life has to change so much that you can’t just slow things right down now. You’re most likely the reason your life is so hard at the minute. You’ll pile plans on top of plans to try and get things done, or to try and see all of the people who you want to see. Before you know it, your week has flown by, and the most you’ve done for yourself is have a shower and eat some food!
If you look in the mirror, you might always see someone who has lost their way a bit in life. Perhaps you don’t have much money, you’re not happy with your home, or maybe you’re falling out of love with your partner. Everyone has their own internal struggles that they’re going through in life, it’s just important that you pinpoint your own, and focus on them. If it’s something so simple, yet so complex, as falling out of love with your partner, then just communicate. A simple talk might be able to put you back on the right path! There’s always going to be a solution to the problems that you’re having, you just have to make sure you’re working through them, and putting your life on the right path.
Is Your Job The Main Issue?
If your life is hard, one of the first places you should look after looking in the mirror, is definitely towards your job. We feel your pain if you’re stuck in a job that you can barely get up for work in the morning for, we really do! You’re not the only one who is suffering in a role that just doesn’t suit them. In fact, you would probably be the odd one out if you were stuck in a role that you actually enjoy! But, the matter of the fact is this, we’re stuck in our jobs until we finally get to that sweet old age of being able to retire.
Do you really think this is a life that you want to lead? Do you really think this is how you want to spend alllll of those years until you retire. No, it’s not, so do something about it! We think that the best way to find a job you enjoy, is to think of the things you enjoy. If you’re a massive animal lover, why not a career as a veterinary nurse. If you absolutely love being around babies, why not train to be a midwife. If you love to write, like I do, work hard and blog.
The possibilities are endless for a happy career, you just have to find one.
Remove Some Negative Energy
If your life is hard at the minute, we guarantee that one thing that will be making it harder is the negative energy that surrounds you. It’s usually going to come from your friends, or even your family. People are so quick to judge and to tell you what to do, it can often feel like all you have is people dragging you down. So, pick out all of the things that you feel are giving you some negative energy at the minute, and confront them. Whether it be your actions, or the actions of others, there’s nothing that a good old talk can’t solve!
Thanks for popping by today, I hope this has given you food for thought.
