This is a collaborative post by Ellie Jo with tips on living a happy life.
If you are in a reflective mood during this Covid-19 crisis, you might be seeing your priorities shift. While you were relatively content in your corporate job and loved having the sporty set of wheels on your driveway, you may now find that all of this materialistic ‘stuff’ just doesn’t matter anymore.
Now you are worried about spending time with your nearest and dearest and doing what makes you fulfilled throughout your working day. Sure, your leadership role pays well, but you might be working a sixty-hour week in an office doing a job that you find boring.
To change your life, you need to find the courage to make some important decisions.
3 Easy Strategies To Change Your Life For The Better
We all cling onto relationships because we are scared of the alternative. The unhealthiest relationships in our lives can cause us immense pain, yet we put up with them. Now’s the time to make a change.
Don’t risk the possibility of felony domestic abuse because you stay with your husband even though he has a nasty temper. It can be difficult to leave because abusers are so manipulative and make you stay.
If you have a friend who demands a lot of your time to help her through her problems, but she is never available when you need a shoulder to cry in, maybe it’s time to wave goodbye to this relationship. You are worth so much more. While tricky, you will feel more free and confident if you can cut the ties of your unhealthy relationships.
Your Working Day
We tend to work for eight hours a day, five days a week. This might be in an office hunched over a laptop.
If you aren’t enjoying your work life and you yearn for something more, think about the passions you have. Do you adore designing jewelry? Are you a master baker? Or can you carve sculptures out of stone? While these might be hobbies at the moment, you should think about morphing these passions into a career.
Doing something that you love to earn a wage is the most fulfilling way to spend your life. Forget about working out the tax obligations of large conglomerates and enjoy making a living working for yourself designing gardens, making custom made tees or selling some authentic street food.
Step Away From Social Media
We have been surrounded by rolling news since the coronavirus crisis began. Understandably, people were hooked to their TV screens eager to know the latest statistics, data, and information about Covid in their area. This has led to an unhealthy reliance on news and social media.
Social media channels like Twitter and Facebook are rife with fake news and misinformation. Even if we can weed out the truth from the fiction, seeing the fake news can impact our mental health. Start to relinquish the ties you have with Instagram and Facebook, and do something more tangible in your life.
Learn an instrument, enjoy chilling in the park, or hook up with a pal at a social distance over coffee. This is so much more fulfilling than the screens within your home.
Follow these strategies and enjoy changing your life for the better.
