5 Steps To A Better You

You can make huge strides to a better physical and mental well being by following through on some small resolutions. And if you know that you want to improve on say your health and lifestyle, you most definitely can be on your way if you follow these 7 steps to a better you.

You don't have to accomplish everything all at once, you just have to pace yourself and you'll get better results.

  • Today is a New Day

Would you like to be more social? Maybe you want to save more money, be a little more polite, less stressed or upbeat. Whatever your goal may be, simply set up a timeline and on that timeline create small steps that will take you to your goal. Don't get discouraged if you backslide a bit because nobody is perfect, and you have to learn to take the good with the bad, and keep looking forward to build a better you.

  • Family and Friends are Important

Being connected to other human beings can be a powerful tool for healing. When you spend time with people you truly care for, trust and confide in, you just feel instantly alive and happy.The people who are the most important to you, cannot be traded or satisfied with money or material things, because they are the true and genuine treasures in your life. Use any means necessary to keep those relationships strong. By email, social networks, or phone, do whatever it takes to stay in touch weekly.

  • Get some Me Time

With all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, its easy to get overbooked and overworked, and not get any time for relaxation. It is a must to find time to kick your heels up and unwind. Find an activity, without distraction, that you know relaxes you the most. Something quiet and comforting like gardening, reading or meditation. Anything that brings balance and calm to your mind, body and soul. Try getting a massage. Turndown social events if life gets overwhelming and basically give yourself a better you day spa. It will get you back in touch with yourself.

  • A Quick Spirit Booster

If you are feeling all stressed out by all the bad news you see on TV about what's happening in your neighborhood and around the world, here is a simple solution. Don't watch the news. Take a negativity break by not watching the news, reading the newspaper, or any other forms of negative reporting for a few days or more. The absence of depressing crime reporting will make you feel better about yourself and life.

  • Forgive and Forget

Holding a grudge will make you angry, depressed, anxious, have high blood pressure, and raise your heart rate. Learn to let it go and your mental and physical health will benefit. You don't even have to forget just control how it affects you and you will benefit.

Be a better you by changing your outlook and taking steps to begin seeing the improvements you want for yourself on your journey to a better life.
