9 Ways to Change Your Life

Are you stuck in a rut? Do you need to make some real changes to your life? There are several different ways to make your life a more positive one.

1. Appreciate your wins.

Celebrate your accomplishments, even the small ones like getting up and going to work or hitting the gym. When you have bigger wins, it will be easier to appreciate them if you already appreciate the small ones.

2. Play more.

Be childlike and filled with wonder. Play childlike games and have fun!

3. Master your moods.

Learn how to control your moods. If you feel like you are in a bad mood for no reason, learn how to reset and turn your mood into a good one.

4. Be present.

Don’t worry about the past or the future. You can’t do anything about everything that’s already happened, and worrying incessantly won’t change things in the future. The only moment you have control over is this moment. Now.

5. Honor your body.

Honor your body by feeding it nutritious foods, exercising often, and not smoking or drinking or taking drugs. This body is the only one you get so treat it with respect.

6. Develop a daily meditation practice.

We are most connected with God or Spirit or Source (whatever you want to call It) when we allow ourselves to be silent for a small amount of time each day and really be present in meditation with God. Starting your day like this every day is one way to ensure that you stay on track.

7. Create positive affirmations.

We are always creating affirmations. “I am tired.” “I am hungry.” “I am fat.” “I am stupid.” Make sure the things you tell yourself are positive and kind. Replace these affirmations with positive things that you love about yourself.

8. Count your blessings.

Be grateful! Start a gratitude journal and make a list of ten things you are grateful for every day. You will be amazed. Once you start the list, it’s hard to stop!

9. Learn from your mistakes.

We are on this road called life because we are supposed to be learning. If you don’t learn from your mistakes, you are bound to repeat them.
