Your mindset sets the tone for your day. A calm and peaceful mind is something we all want, and with a bit of practice, you won't be far from reaching this destination.
Here are a few things for you to consider, if you want to extract the best out of daily life:
1. Don't sweat the small stuff. It is easy to get caught up feeling annoyed, anxious, and impatient with daily life. Try to take a step back from your immediate state of mind and ask yourself whether negativity is worth your energy.
2. Be grateful. Take a moment each day to be thankful for what you do have; family, friends, a home, your health etc.
3. Know the difference between what you need and what you want. Ask yourself whether you truly need what you desire. Remember that material goods and social status does not equate to happiness.
4. Be kind to yourself and the world around you. Forgive yourself for your mistakes or shortcomings and allow others to learn from theirs. Practice self-care daily.
5. Focus more on time than money. Do more of what makes you happy: socialising, me-time, spend more time on that hobby that makes you feel fulfilled, humble and alive.
