3 Changes Worth Making To Feel More Content

We get used to doing certain things, behaving in a certain way with certain people and we rarely take a step back and take stock. The problem with this is that you can absently drift along without really enjoying and making the most of your days. Which is why today we wanted to offer up a little inspiration for you with our 3 changes worth making to feel more content. Do let us know if any of them ring true for you and how you get on making those changes. 

Pay attention to the little things

The little things can very quickly mount up to be the big things. This applies in all areas of your life, so we would suggest that the first thing that you do is look more closely at those parts of your life that make up the everyday.

For example, are you getting enough sleep each night? Are you drinking plenty of water? Are you getting outside into the fresh air regularly? Are you enjoying exercising? Do you take time out to relax and recharge?

Many of these things can be relatively easily rectified, you just need to focus on them one at a time and form new habits around them. Choose the one that you feel will make the most difference first and it should then give you a boost to make other small changes. 

Make a career change

Could this be the right time for you to make a career change? Have you been feeling dissatisfied in your work for a while now?

In some instances, it might be that you need to reach out to your manager and ask for extra responsibilities, new skills training or a transfer to a different role. If you love the company that you work for and you feel valued for all that you do but are simply bored in your role, this is probably the best route for you. 

In other cases, you might want to move to a different employer or switch careers. In these cases you might be looking into finding a career in cardiology, you might be building connections within your industry or perhaps you are already sending your resume out there. To ensure that you get this move right, take the time to drill down on exactly what it is that you want from your new job, the role you feel you would be ideally suited to and the type of company that you would be proud to work for. 

Revise your relationships

The relationships that you have in your life should make you feel good about yourself. If spending time with any of your family and friends makes you feel in any way ‘less’ or unlike your true self, then the chances are that they are not healthy for you. 

You can meet these challenges head on by raising it with loved ones or you might need to take a step back from them altogether. 

In addition to the people you have around you, one of the most rewarding relationships that you can form can be with your pet, so it might be worth committing to spending more time relaxing with your cat or walking your dog. 

Your free time should be spent with people, or animals, that lift your spirits.
