A million-dollar question. We all have wondered at some point of time in our life- what is it that we are doing wrong? No matter how hard we try, it might feel as if everything is going wrong around us. You might be struggling to get out your bed every day to go to work. This might be a vicious cycle you are trying to break, but failing. What might break that cycle is to restart your life…COMPLETELY!
Whatever your reason or issue may be, it might help to follow some of the tips below. Hopefully you'll be able to sort things out, and get on the way to fixing your life.
What’s wrong with our mind?
If things aren't working out the way they are now, then the first logical step is to go try something new. Not only will it help you discover other options in life, but it can actually feel really good. When we try something new, we activate new parts of the brain we do not normally use. These can trigger dopamine(1) and serotonin reactions, which can help improve mood and motivate you to move forward and try new things.
What’s wrong with our mornings?
Many of us find ourselves in a morning rut — the alarm goes off, we immediately feel miserable, and then we haul off to work. (Not the best routine, if you ask me.) While one may need to temporarily continue doing this, it can really help to try something new, and start the morning in a different way. Every morning, set intentions, go over what you are grateful for, meditate, workout and set goals for the day. It can help take your day in a different direction.
What’s wrong with our “space”?
Sometimes the easiest place to start is with the dishes. Scrub away, and then straighten up the rest of your apartment. Not only will an organized home feel better, but it can help you get some forward momentum towards change. "Cleaning your physical environment isn’t a fix-all; however, tackling some housekeeping is a good exercise in conquering tasks and gets a productive energy flowing," said life coach Diane Passage on HuffingtonPost.com.
What’s wrong with what we eat?
While you might not always notice it, we are one with our bodies and minds and we are fragile.
Whether you’re at work or at home it is very important to take care of yourself, but especially of what you’re eating. Remember the saying “You are what you eat”? That is entirely true.
By eating certain foods, our bodies assimilate proteins, minerals, vitamins and nutrients that have a great importance to us as an organism.
The cornerstone of a healthy diet should be to replace processed food with natural food whenever possible. Eating food that is as close as possible to the way nature made it can make a huge difference to the way you think, look, and feel.
While some extreme diets may appear to suggest otherwise, we all need a balance of protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals in our diets to sustain a healthy body. You need to select the healthiest options from each category.
One such category is non-vegetarian food. Problems that occur from the consumption of saturated fats (found in non-vegetarian food) like high blood pressure, increased cholesterol and obesity increase the risk of dying early in non-vegetarians. To be specific, the risk of dying from heart disease is less in the vegetarian people as compared to the non-vegetarians.(2)
Not all vegetarians are healthy – as it also depends on their lifestyle. If they don’t eat meat but consume high-fat cheese, junk food and perform no physical activity then they would be no better. Nevertheless, non-vegetarians can these days explore the vegetarian meat options – a latest trend.
Choice toward healthy lifestyle is a choice you have to make. Once you have taken that decision, it’s guaranteed that even if you don’t perfect it, you'll still come out of it feeling like a total boss, and maybe with a new skill under your belt.
