If You Want To Improve Your Life, You Need To Follow These Three Easy StepsBy The DivaGals | April 19, 2018 | Lifestyle
As a fabulous and probably very busy woman, it can be a challenge to find the room (or time) to focus on your personal happiness and wellbeing. Women are expected to be many things, and you can often find yourself running around and taking care of other people’s needs over your own. Whether it’s a demanding boss you have to keep happy, full-on family life or social commitments that keep filling up your diary; your life can feel a little overwhelming at times.
However, the less you do to work on what you want to do and achieve, the less likely you are to find inner fulfillment and happiness. Before you know it, you’ll see yourself stuck in a rut, tired and stressed, and regretting the potential opportunities you may have missed.
Therefore, it’s time to step back for a moment and have a strong talk to yourself (a mirror is totally optional). There’s no time like right now to start making changes, trying something new and focusing on the things that will better your life. So grab your notebook and pen and start writing a list of the areas in your life that you feel need improvement or change. It’s time to take action and embrace change and the resulting opportunities that come with it. We’ve got some great ideas and inspiration for kickass women who need to remember that they should take priority.
Utilize Your Laptop
You might be using the internet to binge watch Jane the Virgin, shop online at Amazon, or read the latest celebrity gossip. And, while these are all valuable reasons to open your laptop in your free time; you could be missing a trick in what the internet can offer you in regards to your lifestyle and personal development. If you feel like studying for a qualification is something you can’t do due to your time and location; look into online courses. There are an array of sources of information and education available, and you can study and gain certificate online that can benefit you and your future career.
Perhaps you want to hone your skills in a particular area: learn a new technical skill like SEO. Become a yoga instructor. Teach yourself some serious kitchen skills to become the next MasterChef. Or maybe it’s just as simple as to take a driver improvement course online so you get to work easier. Don’t limit yourself to Netflix and online shopping; make the most of the great opportunities that could be sat in your lap!
Regularly Switch Off
Ok, we know we just told you that you can change your life by switching your computer on. Now we’re going to advise you do the exact opposite. It’s crucial that you switch it off (along with your phone and tablet) regularly to have a digital detox. Sometimes, you don’t need to waste time scrolling through loads of Instagram pictures. Missing a friend or family member? Don’t head to their Facebook account; arrange to meet up or head over to their place to catch up! Remember you used the Internet to find all those amazing courses? Now you have to shut it down and go!
You’ve done the research online. You showed up for your SEO/yoga/cooking/driving course. Now this is where things get interesting. Find someone in the room and introduce yourself. Keep it simple, say, “I’m so and so. So why did you decide to take this course?” Not only will you be putting someone else at ease who may have been hesitant to shut it down and go, they could become a great contact or a great new pal.
