Quality Life as the New Year resolution
The appreciation of life, I guess, comes from a simple practical comparison of lifestyles.
Say, loving a social lifestyle full of events and meetings with people makes you appreciate quiet weekend day dedicated to just yourself: no people, no worries.
On the other hand, having too much down time drives you crazy: where’s buzz, people, energy?!
Regardless of the chosen style, it should make you happy and should have some value behind. Bringing the quality to your life is your personal choice:
People you allow in your life – are they negative, judgmental with limited self-development or positive who love to identify beauty in people and things around?
Food you eat – eating healthy and fresh is your own preference or you can simply chuck a couple of fried tasteless chips – whatever makes you happy. The only condition is the outcome you receive is based on your choice so don’t be surprised…
Lifestyle you choose – you may do some sport, kinda fun and active. You may prefer have “sofa life” with biggest effort you do is changing your Netflix channels.
Look after yourself or “well, I got good genes” – good genes are a gift that is great to nourish. At the end of the day, for example, ageing quicker walking in the Australian sun every day or event worse – getting cancer from direct unprotected sun lights, genes are not responsible here. You are.
Travel and explore – travelling around is cool and expands your inner horizons. Sometimes you don’t have to physically travel – Australia is blessed to ‘collect the whole world’ in it; one of the best Australian experiences I had is meeting people from all over the world I am grateful to call my friends. What stops you to say hi to that smiley Chinese coming to the same coffee shop you come every morning?
Knowledge you get – we learn something new everyday when we want to learn and grow, just think about it…not sure though about “sofa life” people.
Challenges you go through…or don’t go through. When something stops you from going and doing something, just remember one day long long time ago, you couldn’t walk…
