Do you think about ways to improve your life for the better but don’t know where to start? It doesn’t matter how old you are and where you are at in life; the following two habits will help you change your life for the better:
Take Care of Your Appearance
Your appearance tells a lot about how you feel on the inside and vice versa. In fact, any defect or shortcomings in your appearance can directly impact how you feel and behave. For instance, if you have a broken tooth and haven’t opted for dental implants; yet, there is a great chance that you might be too shy to socialize and smile. And since you might have stopped smiling, it must have made you depressed, sad, and melancholy. Also, perhaps a bit of a loner.
You get the point – you must care for your appearance to feel your best.
Make it a priority to take care of your skin. Usually, our confidence takes a hit when we are upset about our dry skin in the winter. Or, you might have a bad breakout, preventing you from going to a school party in the evening as you don’t want to be judged.
Your skin looks are directly linked with your feelings and vice versa. Thinning hair, brittle nails, and inflamed skin are directly linked with one’s mental state. In other words, your skin is the physical manifestation of your mental state.
Any unwanted physical changes can hurt how one feels. The subsequent bad feelings only worsen the skin, hair, and nails. A vicious cycle is created, and you feel trapped in your own skin.
Taking care of your skin is crucial as it helps you foster a positive and strong emotional state. Once you improve your appearance, you will feel your confidence shoot up. Besides, you improve your socialization skills and develop a much more positive and strong outlook on life.
So, taking care of your appearance is a crucial habit to have for a better life.
Declutter Your House
Your immediate surroundings directly impact how you feel, which is why a cluttered space can cause mental (and in some cases physical) agony. If you are not someone who likes cleaning, you might feel a bit overwhelmed in the beginning, especially if you have been neglecting things for so long that they have gotten worse to the point that extra effort is required, such as in the case of mold removal.
However, you can try out the ten-minute trick. First, you will have to make a list and break down the tasks that you need to do by dividing them into smaller portions. Doing so will make the tasks look more manageable and doable.
Next, you may set the timer and devote ten minutes to cleaning. The underlying reason for setting ten minutes is that they will inspire confidence in you and make you feel that you are in control here and you can do it in ten minutes.
By setting a timer, you are also least likely to procrastinate. In fact, you can turn the task of decluttering your space into a game.
