Thinking Of Your Future Self: What Can You Do?

Thinking Of Your Future Self: What Can You Do?

Sometimes we need to be aware that the things we do today, will have an impact on our tomorrow. Sometimes we can get stuck in the here and now and focus too much on how we feel today, and making sure that we feel good about it, but often, sometimes those things on a long term basis will not help us in the future. It is always good to feel amazing in the present day, but if you can, making wise choices as well for your future self. Here are some of the things that you can do.

Take care of your teeth

Your teeth are often one thing that you overlook, but in truth, we only get one shot at looking after our adult teeth. You may not be able to avoid accidents that cause your teeth to be damaged or fall out, but you can ensure that they are looked after, free from plaque and are in good condition. This is when things like a decent dental care schedule could work in your favour. Enabling you to go to appointments, have your teeth regularly checked and ensure that any treatment needed is done. It may sound like a simple thing, but we will all be thankful for decent healthcare in the future as we get older.

Work on your mindset

Your mind is a powerful tool, and so you should ensure that you work on this aspect of your life. The issue is that we can all develop habits of thinking. You may naturally go towards a negative outlook, think about the worst case scenario of generally feel not good enough. But this is your mindset, and it can be changed. Like anything habits need to be broken and made again, and you can certainly turn negative thoughts into something more positive. You could also work on other things like gratitude, which could also work towards helping you change your outlook on life for the better. Small steps can have the biggest impact.

Change your lifestyle

Your lifestyle is a big factor, and the things that you eat and the amount of activity you do day to day can also have a positive effect on your future self. You need to ensure that you nourish your body with the things that it needs to function more effectively. Activity doesn’t mean heading to the gym each day, but making a choice to be active everyday. This could be walking your dog, or even just taking the stairs instead of a lift. Changing your lifestyle is an ongoing thing, and takes work and effort to realise what will work for you and what won’t.

Becoming more aware of makes you feel good

Finally, you only get one life, and so it is vital that you become more aware of the things that make you feel good, and avoid those things that don’t. Of course, not all of us will have a job we love but yet we still need to do it in order to pay our bills. But the long term benefit of that is being able to live the life we want, so it’s an essential cog in the system. This is more about surrounding yourself with people you love and build you up, and also being able to do the things that you enjoy doing. Fill your days with as many good things as possible.

Let’s hope this helps you to think of your future self.

Ways of Implementing Order in Your Life

Ways of Implementing Order in Your Life

 

Growing up means learning how to navigate life in the best way possible and becoming a functioning member of society. At the same time, we all strive to achieve the feeling of holding all (or at least) some strings in our hands. However, it is not uncommon that most people didn’t grow into an organized adult, and they never learned the basics, which now affects their professional and private life. If you are one of those with an iron will, but without the skill or knowledge on where to start, read on as we present to you the four fundamentals of implementing order in your life.

Work on your mindset

First and foremost – start by finding a way to change your outlook. If you’re reading this article, chances are that you’ve struggled with organizing your life before and had little to no success. So perhaps the best way of going about it is to start from yourself. Figure out what stops you from keeping a timely schedule, from an organized room, from doing your chores, or prioritizing things in your life. The reasons can be of all sorts: from serious ones, like depression, to more easily manageable ones, like fatigue, or simple laziness. Take the time to dig in and find the root of your problems, as that is 80% of the battle.

To-do list

When you’re just beginning to organize your life, figuring out how to stay on top of everything can take its toll. More than likely, it’ll be tempting to quit under the pressure of remembering what needs to be done and when. At this early stage, you will want to have a to-do list. Buy yourself a planner, or a single pad if you prefer to keep it simple. Write down what needs to be done, then prioritize the chores. Start small by making daily lists, then gradually evolve to weekly and monthly goals. You will rid yourself of a lot of unnecessary stress.

De-clutter

This probably goes without saying, but the most common type of disorder we all struggle with is the one in our homes. Cluttered rooms contribute to the feeling of disorganization and loss in our own everyday life. The only solution to this problem is to sort everything out. Clear your wardrobe of old clothes, attic and basement of old utilities, unused furniture and unfinished projects. You can give them away to charity, sell them, toss them, or as experts from cheap storage Sydney advise store them until you decide. Don’t pressure yourself into knowing immediately what to do. Most things can have sentimental value and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Online presence

Oddly enough, time spent online can play a huge factor in the lack of order in your life. Take note of how many hours a day you spend on the internet, and whether it is social media, streaming videos, or doing something of substance. What many of us don’t realize is that, while informative and useful, the internet is a wonderful distraction. When we decrease our daily online activities, we find ourselves with a surprising amount of ‘additional’ time for other, perhaps more productive activities. This can be another good way to bring order to your life – eliminate all unnecessary distractions and time-wasting online activities.

Lastly

Take the process easy on yourself. The changes won’t happen over night, but they should be on a steady rise. Get yourself a notepad or a planner, decide on your priorities throughout the day, and clear out all the physical clutter to keep a de-cluttered mind as well. Having a semblance of order in your life is not something you earn once, but a skill used constantly. You simply get better at it, and learn to use your time in a more practical, economical manner.
