Things to Start Doing for Yourself
“Enjoy everything that happens in your life, but never make your happiness or success dependent on an attachment to any person, place or thing.” – Wayne Dyer
You deserve to live a more balanced, harmonious and happier life, starting today and starting now. Today, not tomorrow, nor the day after tomorrow is where your life is, where your life starts. Take good care of yourself.
Focus more of your attention on yourself and pay close attention to all of these things for they are meant to help you create a more balance and happier life, because you deserve the best life has to offer. Are you ready? Let’s get started.
1. START BREATHING PROPERLY, SOFTLY AND DEEPLY
When was the last time you paid attention to your breath? Whether you believe it or not, we forgot how to breathe, and what we call breathing is nothing more than shallow breathing.
Take deep breaths throughout the day, pay attention to your breathing and know that by doing so, not only will you improve your health, but you will also train yourself into becoming more present in the now, more present and engaged in your own life and the life of others.
2. LET GO OF YOUR PERSONAL HISTORY – ENJOY THE PRESENT MOMENT
Let go of your past. Have a clear image of where you want to go, know how you want your future to look like but live in the present moment, for the present moment is all you ever had, all that you have and all you’ll ever have. Know that every time you identify with your past, you deny yourself the right to grow and evolve, the right to advance through life.
3. LET GO OF ALL THOSE THINGS THAT NO LONGER SERVE YOU
Find the inner strength and courage to let go of all those things that no longer serve you, of all those things that no longer bring joy and happiness into your life.
4. FORGIVE YOURSELF FOR PAST MISTAKES
It’s okay to make mistakes. If we don’t make mistakes we don’t move, we don’t grow, we are stagnating. Forgive yourself for past mistakes and know that forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself.
5. RELEASE ALL JUDGMENTS YOU HAVE PLACED UPON YOURSELF AND OTHERS
Whenever you catch yourself being judgmental towards yourself and others, repeating these words to yourself will help a lot, Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances. – Wayne Dyer.
6. EXPECT THE BEST FROM LIFE
Expect the best and you will receive the best. Open your eyes and see the beauty that is present all around you. Open your eyes and see yourself as the beautiful being you were born to be.
7. NURTURE THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOURSELF AND OTHERS
Love yourself, accept who you are and work on pleasing yourself before pleasing others, nurture yourself first before nurturing others. It is very important to start with yourself. You will not be able to help others if you don’t help and take care of yourself first. Nurture the relationship you have with yourself so that you can be able to nurture your relationships with others.
8. START TREATING YOURSELF AS YOU WOULD WANT OTHERS TO TREAT YOU
If you yourself are not being kind and loving towards your own person, you can’t expect others to do do it. You can’t expect others to do something for you that you yourself are not capable of doing. Start treating yourself in the exact way you would like others to treat you.
9. NURTURE YOUR MIND, BODY, HEART AND SPIRIT
Work on nurturing your mind, your body, your heart and your soul, because you will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more.
10. DEVELOP AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
Who you are right now, where you are and what you have is more than enough.
