If you want to lead a less stressful, happier, more productive life, continue reading to discover a few life changing lifestyle tips.
Lifestyle tips to transform your life:
1. Get into the habit of purchasing high-quality items instead of cheap junk
If you want to declutter your home and as a result your mind, it’s a great idea to get into the useful habit of saving up to purchase high-quality items that will last you several years. Rather than purchasing fast fashion or low-quality furniture or homeware related goods, which you’ll end up needing to replace several times a year.
2. Set alarms to control your social media use
If you find that you rely on your smartphone and social media as a crutch and that you suffer from a slight or serious social media addiction, it’s a great idea to set alarms to help control your social media use. As an example, before you hop onto to Facebook or Instagram, set an alarm for 15 minutes time.
When your alarm goes off, stop scrolling through your feed and messaging your online friends and log off all of your social media accounts. Once you’ve logged off your accounts, set yourself a challenge of staying off your accounts for a minimum of 3 hours.
If you believe that you’ll be highly tempted to log back into one or more of your accounts, simply place your smartphone in a drawer for a couple of hours. As if your phone is out of sight, you’ll be able to keep it and social media off your mind.
3. Stop being fooled by clever marketing campaigns
Next time you want to purchase an item which you’ve seen advertised either on a traditional ad or by an online influencer, think twice about why you want the item on your mind. Remember not to be fooled by clever marketing campaigns, which are designed to convince you to part with your hard earned money in favor of purchasing items which you probably don’t’ really need or want.
4. Don’t be tempted to multitask
The truth is that no one who multitasks is actually able to complete all of the tasks which they perform to the best of their ability. So instead of trying to multitask, instead try to focus on one task at a time. Which should actually be more efficient than trying to cope with managing three or more tasks at once.
5. Don’t say yes to every social invitation which you receive
If you find it hard to say no to your friends and family members, you’ll end spending way more money than you’d like and may become tired and worn out. So before you automatically respond with a yes to a social invitation, it’s well worth thinking twice about your budget and energy levels before you commit to attending an event.
6. Watch movies instead of TV series
If you want to free up time in your life watch a short 90-minute movie instead of watching a TV series. While most TV episodes are under 60 minutes long they are designed to be highly addictive and before you know it you may have binge-watched a whole new series!
If you take the tops listed above to heart, you should be able to notice a positive difference in your life.
