Clear your mind and clean up your life with these 5 small changes you can start making straight away
We all know the key to creating a life you love is to start with yourself – to recognise that larger, external change begins with personal, internal transformation. In other words, everything changes when you do.
In theory, this sounds great, but how do you actually go about making these shifts? Here are some key ways to clean up your inner world in order to make real steps towards creating the life you want.
Treat yourself well
If you take care of yourself, it’s much easier to maintain a positive outlook. It all really starts by carefully considering the different aspects of your lifestyle – the food you eat, clothes you wear and the way you treat your body all have an impact.
You don’t need to earn a fortune or own a palace to be happy. Respecting what you have can make you feel infinitely richer and more fulfilled.
Passion fuels passion
Finding joy through activities that are meaningful to you, and which contribute to others, is a great
way to boost your energy. Use positive feelings to guide your choices and actions towards the life
you truly want – following the ‘right path’ will naturally benefit others, too. Being selfish is okay in this sense, because you can’t fully help others until your own life is in disorder.
Give to get
It makes sense to focus on what you want rather than what you don’t. Start by recognising and appreciating all the things you already have. The universe is unlimited and similarly, your own potential to create the life you want in a way that honours others is also unlimited. Don’t forget to ‘give before you get’. After all, if you want something, you may need to give something first.
Learn to like the unexpected
Letting go of old situations can sometimes seem difficult, but unexpected change can often lead to exciting opportunities you hadn’t even thought of. So be prepared for circumstances to work out in new ways and look for the chances they give you. Embrace change with a positive attitude and trust your instincts and intuition to guide you; the more you use them, the stronger they become.
Spread a little tenderness
Even if others are behaving in ways you don’t approve of, negative behaviour is often a disguised cry for help, so try not to take such conduct personally. What goes around comes around. The ancient belief of karma really makes sense, so try to be friendly and giving wherever you can, and trust that all good things will come back to you
