Self Improvement Tips That Will Make Your Life Better (Health and Relationships)
1. Create a meal plan.
Planning out your meals ahead of time will help you spend less money and stick to your health goals. A great meal plan is the $5 Meal Plan. People love this one!
2. Stop eating fried food.
Fried food makes you feel awful for ~24 hours (not to mention it lacks nutrients). You’ll feel better if you cut out fried food.
Don’t go more than 3 days without exercising. Exercising gives you energy, helps relieve stress, and helps you get fit. It’s too hard to squeeze it in every day sometimes, but don’t go more than 3 days without it.
3. Eat minimal dairy.
If you have a sensitive stomach, try cutting out dairy. For some people this can eliminate digestive problems.
4. Cut out one of the following: pop, coffee, alcohol, or sugar.
If you could cut all these, then even better (but I would think you are a superhero)!
5. Get enough good sleep.
This may be 5.5 hours or it may be 8 hours – whatever it is for you, make sure you get it. The quality matters just as much as the time spent sleeping. Sleep allows you to regenerate and gives you greater concentration.
6. Focus on building strength more than on being skinny.
This will create positive goals that are attainable and healthy for you.
7. Make sure you get enough Vitamin C and D.
Both of these can impact your health in a positive way if you get enough (and can have the opposite effect if they’re lacking). Check with your doctor which vitamins she recommends.
8. Drink enough water every day.
A good rule of thumb is to divide your body weight by 2 and that’s how many ounces you should drink.
9. Keep track of your annual, routine doctor appointments and don’t miss any.
Put a recurring reminder on your calendar for things like dental checkups, skin checks, and physicals so you don’t miss any. Take your preventative care seriously.
10. Take fitness classes or hire a personal trainer.
If you struggle to get fit, classes or a trainer are great ways to go. Just make sure you can afford it!
12. Subscribe to a health blog.
Learn about healthy living as a lifestyle practice little by little every day. Here’s a list of 10 of the best health and wellness blogs.
1. Be your own best friend.
Learning to love yourself will create a centeredness that everyone deserves to experience. You’ll be happier in every area of your life.
2. Set relationship goals.
You wouldn’t start a business, career, or anything else super important without setting goals, so why skip relationships? Start small and come up with goals together.
3. Put as much effort into your relationships as you do into your work.
This is hard for type-A, achievement oriented people. However, it’s absolutely necessary. People matter the most. Prioritize your people.
4. Give people the benefit of the doubt.
If you make this a practice, you’ll be happier. You won’t question people as much, and you’ll find that you’re less judgmental.
5. Have family meetings.
Discuss how things are going, including your personal goals, financial goals, and anything else. It’s good to have a time to check-in with each other.
6. Call one friend or family member once a day.
It’s important to stay connected to the people most important to you. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the need to stay in touch, simply call one person you care about every day. This way, over time, you’ll stay in touch with everyone.
7. Don’t be a victim.
Whatever your circumstances are, take ownership of them. Then, take action. If you feel like your situation is someone else’s fault, you’ll never change it.
8. Learn to argue productively.
Arguing is part of any healthy relationship. Learn how to do it constructively and respectfully. No name calling or yelling.
9. Say sorry the right way.
Don’t use “ifs” in your apologies (e.g.: “I’m sorry if I upset you). Address your apology head-on and take responsibility for your actions.
10. Don’t put your partner down in public.
This is one of the worst things you can do. It’s disrespectful and harms the relationship.
11. Stop negative thoughts about other people when you begin to think them.
This practice can become a habit, and when it does, you’ll get out of a negative mindset. You’ll be happier and less judgmental, too.
12. Commit to playing with your kids regularly.
It’s not enough to provide for them financially. They need your time (and quality time at that).
13. Prioritize your kids over your work.
This is hard for the breadwinner of the family, but it’s worth it. Your regrets at the end of your life will be about people – not work. Prioritize your people.
