If you really want to be happy and get more enjoyment out of life, then you do need to put a little effort in. These things don't come automatically, and all of it is down to you.
It doesn't matter how busy your life is, you should always find the time to enjoy it. Without doing this, you will end up depressed and feeling as if your life is lacking in almost every area. Sound familiar? But this is simply not true. Everyone has the power to enjoy their lives to the fullest. Let's find out how:
Mindfulness is all about enjoying the moment more by becoming completely present in the now. It is about learning how to stop regretting the past and worrying about the future. Most people do not live in the present. They live in one of these other states, and that is not how you enjoy life. Life is lived in the present, and if you can live here, you will be more focused, relaxed and happy. One way to become more mindful is to start meditating. This is a way to focus your mind on the present to stop concentrating on distracting thoughts. You could also do this by taking up a hobby or taking a walk in the countryside.
Time to Rest
If you are tired, then you aren't going to be enjoying the moment much. You'll be struggling to stay awake and alert and possibly drinking a lot of coffee. If your fatigue is chronic, then you will end up stressed, and your health will begin to decline. So, you need to find some rest and relaxation time. Some people even struggle to unwind when they are at home and are supposed to be relaxing. There is always some form of distraction, and your mind can be in overdrive. Relaxing is actually an art form which you need to learn to enjoy life better. First, you need to sleep more, and maybe you could fit a nap into your schedule for you. Perhaps a long bath or spa day would help. Maybe you need to plan your next holiday for some sun-soaked relaxation. Why not do a little research and discover some great relaxation ideas?
Minimalism is about decluttering your life of all the stresses and toxicities and living freer. You can do this in the physical sense by decluttering your home of all the things cluttering it up. Clutter can actually cause you to feel more anxious and stressed and can even make you sick. It does this by allowing mould, dirt and other parasites to thrive. By decluttering, you are not only making more space but you are getting rid of attachments too. Objects hold memories for you, and these memories can keep you in the past. This is not ideal for enjoying life and can prevent you from moving on. Becoming more minimalist also means getting rid of those toxic people and 'friends' and stopping all those toxic habits that prevent you from living life to the fullest.
