40 ways to live a full life

1. Wake up with gratitude

The moment you open your eyes, you can be thankful you get to see another day. You can also be thankful for the good things you still have in life.

Your life may not be perfect, but it’s also not the worst it could possibly be. Focusing on what you’re thankful for early in your day can help you start your morning in a positive frame of mind.

2. Take a few moments to breathe

Before you get up and get going with your day, take a few moments to breathe and relax. Appreciate the present moment you’re in.

These quiet moments can be comforting before you have to take care of the tasks that are ahead.

3. Speak affirmations

Affirmations can help you to focus on what you desire in life and find ways to move towards that. Think of ones that fit with what you need now.

You can say ones such as, “I’m getting better and better with each day” or “My finances are constantly increasing.”

Always have that belief in your mind that things will work out the way you hope in life.

4. Treat the day like a fresh start

Whatever mistakes you made yesterday you don’t have to think about them today. It’s a new day and you have a new chance to be your best self.

Treat each new day like it’s a fresh start. Try to live with optimism for what great things may be ahead.

5. Maintain good hygiene

Medical professionals will tell you that maintaining good hygiene can make you feel good about yourself.

It’s often when we’re down in life that we tend neglect cleaning ourselves as much as we should. But deciding to practice self-care in bathing regularly will help increase your confidence in yourself.

6. Set goals

Having goals to accomplish can create a high level of satisfaction throughout the years you live. Set goals that you believe you can achieve and will challenge you in ways you haven’t been before.

You can read this article on personal goals to get some ideas.

7. Limit your complaining

It’s easy to find things to complain about if you choose to, but it’s better to not complain at all when possible.

Try to limit your complaints and focus more on the things that you’re happy about.

8. Enjoy a full breakfast

It’s important to have the energy you need to really get off to a good start in your day. Make it a habit to create a nutritious breakfast for yourself that’ll power you through your to-do list.

9. Drink some tea

Teas such as chamomile or peppermint can relax you after a long day of doing work. It’s important for your body to be able to get the rest it needs.

10. Get some exercise

Our bodies weren’t made to just sit all day and stare at a screen. Our ancestors were people that moved around and were physically active.

Find an exercise that you have fun doing and try to do it often throughout your week. You might find it elevates your energy levels and makes you able to do more in your days.

11. Complete daily tasks sooner rather than later

While procrastination may feel good in the moment, it only hurts you in the long run. The first way is it keeps you from moving forward from whatever you need to get done.

The second way is it only adds unnecessary stress to you as your deadline approaches and you’re running out of options.

12. Look for opportunities around you

We can sometimes live with blinders on in life. We don’t look around and see the fresh roses we can smell around us.

You’d be surprised how much opportunity is out there for you to get what you want if you just look around.

If there’s something you really want to make happen, do your research on what’s out there that could help.

Sooner or later, you could stumble on information that not many people take advantage of, and use it to your advantage.

13. Stand and walk tall

The way we carry ourselves can influence the way we perceive ourselves. If you walk around with your head down, people won’t view as having much confidence.

That can influence their decision about whether they want to offer you a job, become a friend, or just interact with you much in general.

Be someone that stands and walks tall. Choose to own who you are.

14. Be comfortable chatting with strangers

Often times people discover a job opportunity or a romantic partner just being comfortable talking to people they meet.

While it may seem unfair to introverts, it’s true that the people your connected with can largely influence your success in life.

It’s important for everyone to learn how to have good conversations with people. You never know what good it may lead to.

Here’s a helpful article you can read on how to be easy to talk to

15. Speak loud and clear

Along with standing and walking tall, practicing speaking loud and clearly so people respect what you’re saying.

You are an important person and you have important things to say and for people to hear.

16. Communicate honestly

Adding on to the point about speaking loud and clearly, don’t be afraid to speak what’s honestly on your mind.

People may not always understand you and that’s okay. It doesn’t make your thoughts any less valid if someone doesn’t agree or mocks you for having them.

As the old saying goes, honesty is the best policy.

17. Look within yourself for answers

We live in a culture that spends way too much time looking to others for answers rather than looking within themselves.

You may not have all the answers, but you can trust yourself to come to the best decisions for your life.

Spend time reflecting on what seems right for you to do rather than doing what other people think you should do.

18. Make time for your passions

Your passions are the things that you could do all day without anyone paying you to do them. You should find ways to allow yourself to enjoy the activities that make you happiest.

It’s these moments in life that can make us really feel alive.

19. Use criticism to improve yourself

People are going to say a lot of things about you. Some of those things might be inaccurate and should probably be ignored.

But other things might have some grain of truth in them that can be helpful to you. Try not to always look at someone criticizing you as a negative.

It may be just the thing you need to improve yourself enough to reach a new level of excellence.

20. Move on quick from negativity

Sometimes it can be hard not to dwell on negative things. Most of it may occasionally need to sit with a negative feeling for a time period.

But be sure not to stay stuck too long in whatever bad feelings you encounter. Practice moving on quick from hardship so you can get back to enjoying your life.

21. Be kind and respectful

Kindness and respect have become more rare these days, but it’s something that people still value from others.

A part of a full life is upholding a character that you admire and others admire. You can accomplish that by always trying to be kind and respectful to people.

22. Give back

Life is as much about helping others as it is helping ourselves. Taking time to be selfless will enrich your life in more ways than you imagine.

Spend time volunteering at a place where people are in need. Be generous in giving the resources you have to make someone’s life better.

23. Have a positive mental attitude

A negative mindset is only going to make life more difficult for you. Choose to have a positive mental attitude by believing the best can happen.

See your future as filled with endless possibilities that can make you happier than ever before

24. Forgive those who hurt you

You don’t have to let the pain of someone’s actions keep you from being happy. Letting what they did continue to hurt you is a disservice to yourself.

While some things in life may take you time to heal from, forgiveness can help you go a long way from moving past it.

Forgive the person that hurt you to help heal yourself from the pain.

25. Let go of the past

Similar to forgiving those who hurt you, there are things in your past that probably still haunt you as well.

Maybe you made a mistake that you’ve struggled to get over. Perhaps some things in life didn’t turn out the way you wanted.

Letting go of the past is important for you being able to have fullest life you desire.

26. Appreciate your loved ones

We never know when or where the time will come when the ones we love are no longer with us.

That’s why we need to appreciate the ones we love as much as possible while we still have them for a fulfilling life.

27. Let go of lost love

It’ll be difficult for you to have a full existence if you constantly live in regret about the love that you lost

Let go of your former lovers. Choose to believe you can fill your space with someone who loves you again.

28. Declutter and organize your space

Clutter can keep us distracted and unable to focus on the things we need to for a full reality. Take time to declutter the things that are no longer meaningful to you.

It’ll make room for the things that really bring joy to your life.

29. Spend time in nature

Nature can have a calming effect on us when we need it the most. With so much technology in our lives, we seem to forget the beauty within the world.

Spend time walking outside and breathing in the fresh air. Listen to the sounds of nature and take in all the greenery.

30. Plan for the future

While being spontaneous can be fun, it’s good to also have plans as well. Chart out the direction you want to go in.

When you put a plan together, it may not go exactly the way you planned, but you’ll usually end up somewhere that you feel grateful for.

31. Learn new things

The world is filled with knowledge all around us. Interesting stories and facts that can enlighten and inspire us.

Learning new things and skills will make you a more well-rounded person and give you more things to talk about with people.

32. Take chances

Don’t be afraid to take a risk if you think it might be worth it. Even if things don’t go so smoothly, believe that you can bounce back from it.

But when you take chances in life and it pays off big, you’ll be glad you were bold enough to do it.

33. Seek advice from knowledgeable people

It’s good to have someone who’s been on the path you’re trying to go give you advice on what to do.

They can help you move much more smoothly towards your desires. You could seek out an older person or someone within your age group who understands your situation.

34. Connect with something deeper

It can be very fulfilling to connect with something beyond yourself. Many people choose to do that through believing and worshiping God.

Find a way to incorporate a deep connection in your life to have deeper fulfillment.

35. Laugh often

Perhaps one of the things I’m most glad for in this world is humor. Laughter has the power to shake off negative experience instantly.

Laughing completely changes the mood of a situation and just makes things better. Find a way to make laughter a regular part of living fully.

36. Be spontaneous

Just as it’s good to plan, it’s also good to be spontaneous. Do something unexpected with your time every now and then.

Live in the moment and create amazing memories you’ll never forget

37. Accept that change is constant

Few things stay the same forever. Learn to be comfortable with the fact that sometimes things will change around you.

It may not be a change you like at first, but you can learn to get used it. You might even learn to like the new reality you’re in.

38.  Make a vision board

Vision boards can be both motivating and inspiring to you in the journey you’re taking. Determine what it is you really want in life.

Grab some pictures and a board, put the pictures together, and hang it somewhere where you can always look at it.

39. Spend less time worrying

Worry is often a waste of time. There are moments where we’ll feel concern in life for the outcome of certain circumstances.

But it’s best to just trust that whatever happens, you’ll be okay. Just watch how things unfold and deal with things as they happen.

40. Believe in yourself

Always do your best to believe in yourself. You are more capable than you give yourself credit for sometimes.

Believe that you can do amazing things. Have confidence in yourself that you can overcome the obstacles you face and come out better than ever.

The happiest life you want to live is ready for you when you want it. Start getting the best of life today.
