Personal Development for Life - Simple things you can do now to love the life you live

Simple things you can do now to love the life you live!

I'd love to write "simply; choose to be happy now" the end.

But as powerful and possible as that is, we often require a little more detail. Not too much so as not to get overloaded, but just enough so it can be easily applied without being tossed into the too hard basket or not enough time slot.

So here are 7 simple things, easy, short and sweet!

1. Smile as much as you can. To yourself and to everyone you meet.

2. Find your power song. A song or instrumental that really lifts you up, gives you goose bumps of excitement, enthusiasm and inspiration. You can add it to your phones playlist to play at-least once a day to let your spirits soar.

3. Meditate every day. For 5 minutes or an hour, you choose. But at least do it. A simple breath meditation will help you quiet your mind and bring you peace and renewed energy. All you do is sit comfortably and focus on your breath. If your mind wanders (it probably will to start with) just gently bring it back to counting and focusing on your breath, in and out, in and out, slowly, deeply, consciously. You can do it anytime, anywhere.

4. Find your own personal mantra. A word or phrase unique to you that lifts your spirits, keeps you motivated, focused and affirms how you want to feel, be and live. Repeat it MORNING, NOON and NIGHT. My first one over ten years ago was simply “every minute of every day my life gets better in every way. Pin yours up so you can see it every day and memorise it. You can even carry it in your wallet. Add it to the printable below.

5. Say I love you in the mirror every day. Love and embrace you. For all that you are, all that you do, all that you can do and can be. Because whether you believe it or not right now - you are fabulous, worthy and capable and don't let anyone make you feel otherwise.

6. Be in the present moment as much as you can. Your now. Catch yourself when your mind wanders off down the path of the past or fly’s off into worry about the future that hasn't even happened. This moment is where change takes place and miracles happen. Not yesterday or tomorrow - today, now!

7. Feed your mind every day with words, thoughts and information that lifts your soul, helps you to grow and fills you with purpose, meaning and love. Use books, audios, positive and inspiring quotes, videos, blogs and newsletters, your own self-talk.
