Ideas for self-improvement
don’t need to change every aspect of your life at once in order to
improve your attitude and outlook on life. Self-improvement can feel
daunting if you try to change everything at once.
good way to embark on your journey of self-coaching is to make one
change and see what kind of impact it has upon your life. The following
tips are designed to help you improve your life and become your own life
coach. Try out one of the following tips at a time to positively impact
your attitude and daily life.
1. Find some ‘you’ time.
Everyone needs time alone to meditate and recharge. You may think you
don’t have extra time in your day. Start with 10-20 minutes to use for
meditation or silent reflection.
2. Ask yourself what
you truly want in life. Are you living your life according to your true
dreams and desires? You may be unaware of your desires that lie hidden
beneath your surface needs and wants, so take the time to find out.
Write everything down. Even if your thought seems silly, write it down!
You may be surprised by the inspiration and ideas you can come up with.
4. Journal daily, but with a twist. Instead of just writing about today, try writing about yesterday.
Keep track of the “happy moments.” Each day has potential for many
small moments that bring joy and happiness. If you don’t make a special
note of them, you may not even recognize the small joys in your day.
Choose one task each night to complete the next day. This way, you have
focus, and you accomplish at least one task. Tasking and taxing
yourself with effort is important in reaching goals.
Smile when you wake up. Smiling is contagious. By smiling you improve
your mood and can potentially improve someone else’s day as well.
Give thanks each night. Gratitude will improve your outlook on life and
help you see all the good and wonderful moments of your day.
9. Try something new. A new experience fuels creativity and your enjoyment of the day.
10. Create at least one memorable moment each day. Make each day unforgettable, even if in a small way!
of the most common complaints of clients who want life balance coaching
is that their plate is fuller than full. Many of us have so many
responsibilities in life that we forget to take care of ourselves. And
while it’s hard to prioritize something like taking a bath when you have
so many other priorities in life, self care is an important aspect of
stress management. A massage, soak in the tub or other forms of
pampering revitalize you inside and out.
