|Tips to Enjoy Life|
Life is often thought to be a mindset, the result of reflection, action and gratitude.
And while most of us lack sufficient free time to escape to some mountaintop temple to follow our bliss, the best way to find happiness is to make practical, everyday changes.
Coupled with conscious choices to appreciate the people in your life and making space to do the things you're best at, small changes to your life soon add up to greater enjoyment in life.
Get a pet. Owning a pet provides love, companionship, and hours of entertainment. Pet ownership has health benefits, too, such as reducing your blood pressure and the risk of heart disease, increasing your feelings of well-being and teaching you lessons in empathy and nurturing.
Develop an interest in music.
Listening to music taps into your brain’s imagination and sense of self-identity, boosts your self-esteem, and lessens feelings of isolation.
Take a break.
A decent break doesn’t mean zoning out to the TV or going down the internet rabbit hole. It means setting some time aside and making it special.
Spend time with interesting people.
It is well known that people with a wide circle of friends tend to live longer.
Of course, birds of a feather flock together, and it’s also been shown that your friends’ behavior can actually have a big impact on yours.
You don’t need a clinician to tell you that stress is no fun, but did you know that even a mild stress-induced mood disorder like sub clinical depression can wreak havoc on your immune system? In fact, the duration of a stressful period has more effect on immunity than its severity.
Find a hobby.
Whether you choose stamp collecting or kickboxing, hobbies and extracurricular activities are necessary in the pursuit to enjoy life.
Hard routines are counterproductive to spontaneity and surprise leave a little flexibility in your schedule so that it doesn't become routine and humdrum.
Sleep is strongly linked to a person’s health, stress levels, weight and quality of life.
Moreover, while you sleep, your body produces cells that fight infection, inflammation, and stress, which means that getting too little sleep makes you more prone to getting sick and increases the time you need to recover from illness.
Eating well has a huge variety of health benefits.
