How to better yourself maybe a vague phrase, but it’s something that everyone questions at one point in life. The question is what do you want to be better at? Do you want to just be a better person in general? What defines a “good person?” While opinions vary on answers to these questions, here are the top three tips on how to better yourself overall.
Change Your Mindset
It’s no lie that positivity seems to be harder to come by today. It’s not a natural reaction to all of the negative things in life, but it can truly change your outlook. Changing your mindset to a more positive outlook will help not only brighten your day but also brighten the day of those around you.
Try replacing every negative thought with a positive one! Especially when it comes to thoughts about yourself. We tend to be our own harsh critics. This really makes our motivation and happiness drop! When you don’t feel like you’re worthy of being a good person, then you won’t feel motivated to truly make steps to better yourself.
Upgrade the Golden Rule
Everyone has heard the golden rule. “Treat others as you want to be treated,” right?! NO! You really need to upgrade the golden rule.
We shall call this the diamond rule – treat others BETTER than you want to be treated. I know, when the person pulls out in front of you while driving, you don’t feel like greeting them with a smile. The good news is, the more you treat others well, you will generally be a happier person. Kind people are better people all around!
Here is your challenge for today: find something kind to do for someone else. It doesn’t matter how big or small!
Care For Your Body
It’s no secret that when you feel good you can do more! Taking care of your body should be a priority so that you can be the best version of yourself. Caring for your body looks different for everyone, but here are a few tips of ways you can care for yourself:
- Try some type of daily movement – walking, biking, swimming, weightlifting, etc.
- Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet
- Drink more water
- Aim for eight hours of sleep each night
- Try to stay on top of your wellness checkups with your doctors
- Try stress-relieving practices such as yoga, meditation, stretching, or walking
Becoming the best version of you looks different for everyone. This could mean getting in shape, becoming more productive, getting a raise at your job, or even just treating others kindly. Whatever this looks like for you, it doesn’t matter! The goal is to be clear on your desires and create an action plan to get there.
This is where a professional may come in. If you have trouble with goal setting, achieving your goals, or making life decisions, then you might consider a life coach. A life coach will help you gain clarity on where you want to go, provide actionable steps to get there and push you far past your limiting beliefs to achieve true transformation.
