Life at times can feel so frustrating, overwhelming, and if I were honest damn cruel. You sit back and wonder to yourself, how am I going to get over this hump? When will I be able to be happy and smile again? Sometimes the mere thought of happiness only seems accessible in your dreams.
#LuxeTribe, if there is anything that I want you to walk away from this article knowing it’s this; “You have the ability to change your state of mind and in return, your entire perspective of the experience.”
Most people think that to experience a happy lifestyle, you must change your whole life around. But the truth is the smallest changes in your daily routine can add up to the biggest transformation of your life. We want you to start living a Happier & Healthier life so here are our tips to make it happen!
1. Start your day with a Grateful Heart
In the midst of life, sometimes we forget to be thankful for what’s right in front of us. We become so addicted to the lifestyles that we see on social media and start to believe we are missing out on life. It is important to remind ourselves there is no life better than ours and comparing our life to someone else’s highlight reel; it’s just not fair to you and your spirit. So we recommend starting your day with positive and grateful attitude for all the blessings in your life, and that will automatically set your day in a positive motion.
2. Fuel your Body
Whether this is a healthy smoothie for breakfast or an evening workout make sure to take time out of your day to give back to your body in a healthy way. Not only does this provide your body with energy but you will feel so good about yourself! Stay tuned for a healthy smoothie recipe to get your day going with the right fuel!
3. Write down your Goals
Check out this quote straight out of Forbes magazine
“There was a fascinating study conducted on the 1979 Harvard MBA program where graduate students were asked, “have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?” The result, only 3% had written goals and plans, 13% had goals but they weren’t in writing, and 84% had no goals at all. Ten years later, the same group was interviewed again, and the result was absolutely mind-blowing.
The 13% of the class who had goals, but did not write them down was earning twice the amount of the 84% who had no goals. The 3% who had written goals were earning, on average, ten times as much as the other 97% of the class combined!”
Writing down where you wish to be in your life, and journaling about it will highly increase the likelihood of you creating your #LuxeLife – the life of your dreams! Whenever you get a chance, go back to your journal and remind yourself of your journey, so you don’t give up on your goals.
4. Live in the present
Allow yourself to be immersed in whatever you’re doing right now, and take the time to be in the present moment. Avoid replaying past negative events in your head or worrying about the future; just savor what’s going on in your life now.
5. Surround yourself with Positivity
Surround yourself with people who make you happy. Individuals who make you laugh and who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care about you and your wellbeing. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.
Positive people will inspire you to be a better person, provide you with motivation to achieve your goals, empower you to make the changes you need to succeed and cheer on your success. That’s the type of person that you need in your life.
6. Find your Passion & Pursue it
Take time each week to do something you are passionate about, and that brings you happiness! Maybe it’s something you used to do before life got too busy or maybe it’s a goal that you want to cross off your bucket list. Taking a moment for yourself will help you to recharge, decompress, and be more productive and happy.
