- Live in the moment. Many people today have multiple things happening around them and on their devices all at once. Take a moment to breathe and focus on what you’re doing. You can usually answer an unimportant text or an email later, but you won’t be able to get this moment in time back.
- Decide on your values. Everyone values different things, but defining your values helps what makes you, you.
- Don’t put things off. The longer you are holding things off the more time you spend worrying about when you will actually do the thing you are putting off. Try to get it done so you can do something you enjoy doing.
- Do something that makes you happy each day. Many times you will have to do something you don’t want to do in a day, but try to set aside some time in the day to do something you enjoy doing.
- Follow your passion. While not every passion will lead to money nor does it need to, spending time working on your passion is always something to help motivate you.
- Dream. Having dreams is crucial in life but just as crucial is acting on those dreams to turn your dreams into reality.
- Expectations have reality in mind. While it is always good to shoot for the moon with your dreams, it is also equally important to make sure that expectations are grounded in reality. It is not good to beat yourself up over huge goals that you can’t accomplish in one day.
- Volunteer. There are many different ways to volunteer. Whether you volunteer yourself to help out those in need or volunteer your skills to help someone accomplish something. Volunteering is a nice way to help others.
- Strengthen yourself. Your mind, body and soul are what makes you you. It’s important to try and keep all of you healthy.
- Form relationships. Whether you make new friends or start dating a new partner, new relationships always bring new experiences.
- Spend time with family. As you get older sometimes with new things in life it gets tough to see your family. Try to make time to see or call your family members once in a while.
- Hold yourself to higher standards. Everyone has different ideals of what standards should be, but strive to make yourself live up to higher standards.
- Map out your goals and how to accomplish them. It’s great to set goals, try to map out ways to accomplish them so you can start your journey to completing them.
- Take action on your goals. After you have set and mapped out your goals, try to start actually working towards them.
- Come up with a bucket list. While the actual purpose of a bucket list may not always be delightful. Creating a bucket list lets you think of fun and exciting things that you want to do in your life. Whether it’s learning to surf or visiting a new country. It’s good to have a list because the opportunity to cross something off the list may not always come at a time you expect.
- Learn from mistakes. Mistakes will happen and you can only move forward and correct your mistakes after they were made. It is important to learn from them so that you do not make the same mistakes again.
- Take in constructive criticism. It is not always something you may want to do, but asking close family members and friends for some things you can work on may help you realize habits or things you didn’t know you did.
- Self reflect. Take some time to reflect on what others may have said about you and what things you think you may need to work on.
- Find ways to improve on criticism. Now that you have an idea of things you need to improve upon you can start to act on those things and begin improving yourself.
- Help others. Whether you volunteer in your own community or you’re helping a family member or friend, it’s important to give back.
- Don’t treat others poorly. Known as the golden rule, treat others how you want to be treated. While you may not particularly like everyone you meet it is still important to hold yourself to a higher standard and be kind to others.
- Show compassion towards others. Everyone is living a different life, you never know what kind of weight someone is carrying on their shoulders, or what kind of problems or issues they have been dealing with. While you may not be able to comprehend, show compassion towards them to help comfort them.
- Find a hobby that you enjoy. A hobby can be a great way when you have free time to distress and disconnect from the world for a few hours.
- Don’t weigh yourself down with material possessions. We live in a world where you are shown new products and services practically wherever you go. Don’t let the idea of material possessions take control of you. There are many things you may want in life but there are fewer things that you actually need. Don’t let the idea of something you can’t have make you unhappy. Instead try to enjoy and make more of the things you do have.
- Rethink the meaningful relationships in your life. While it is important to self reflect on you as a person, self reflect on the kinds of relationships you want in life.
- Stop spending time with people who negatively impact your life. There is a saying that you are an accumulation of the 5 people you hang out with most. If you are hanging out with people that are constantly bringing you down or putting you in bad situations, you may need to rethink who you should be spending your time with.
- Start spending more time with people who are a good influence on your life. Whether it’s spending more time with family or friends, there should be people that bring positivity to your life. Try to spend more time with those kind of people, to help uplift your life and theirs.
- Jot down notes on your phone or in a notebook about life events. Keeping a journal can be an amazing way to remember some great times, outside of taking pictures.

- Think about where you want to be 5 years from now. Try to think of where you see yourself in 5 years, and what you can do to achieve that.
- Find a job you enjoy. Working, while not always what everyone wants to do, can provide a lot of valuable skills to growing as a person.

- Remove unnecessary clutter. Cleaning out the old helps make way for the new.
- Keep developing yourself. Whether you want to learn a new skill or how to do something there are many resources online to help you.
- Try new things. You won’t know if you like something unless you try it. There are many things we are scared of trying because of the thought of failure. Every professional started out as an amateur at one point.
