There are certain habits that we have that do not contribute to our well-being, unlike others, that play in this favor. There are practices that help us make the most of our time and have a happier life, with health, resilience and success.
Here are the last ones on my list:
Live according to the time you have – Do we have as much time as we believe? Maybe not. Considering that, per day (if telecommuting), he works eight hours, spends seven hours sleeping and still spends some of his time doing meals and other mandatory tasks, he only has about five or six hours left to dedicate to what really gives you pleasure to do. And in the midst of it all, you still have to take care of your relationships or take care of other mandatory matters.
If you think about it this way, you quickly understand the need to make the best of your time, expending energy on what really matters.
Virtual reality – Yes, your phone puts more information at your fingertips than you could get from the world’s great libraries. The question is, does he make you happy? Science proves the contrary and shows that we are happier when we spend more time away from our phone and, also, when we spend more time in contact with Nature.
Give meaning – Many of us believe that the best life is that which is achieved when the job is done and, finally, we can go to the sofa or the lounger. However, some research shows that we are more likely to be happier when we face some kind of difficult and significant challenge. Try to have more space for this exit from the comfort zone.Practice activities that awaken your altruistic side and that, instead of separating you from others, connect you to them.
Unusual experiences – Plan “peak experiences” to live after these times of social isolation. Something new and unusual, that gives you a sense of wonder, like enjoying the view from the top of a mountain or watching the stars at night.
