The concept of becoming one’s “best self” means different things to different people. For some, it may mean getting in physical shape and having a more healthy diet. For others, it may revolve around calming an anxious mind and finding balance.
Whatever your idea of being your best self is, here are six tips to help you achieve your goals.
Make Time To Meditate
Meditation has so many great health benefits! Just 5 to 10 minutes daily can improve mental clarity, balance emotions, and improve life outlook. This can also relieve stress and help clear your mind. It is just what you need when you have had a rough day. Best of all, meditation can provide a holistic approach to what some experts today are calling “inner engineering,” the process of aligning all levels of our self towards our highest goals.
Include Fitness In Your Daily Routine
For many people who lead time-crunched lives, it can feel impossible to get fit or stay that way. Exercising and eating right just takes a lot of time and effort. It is a well known fact that fitness is good for your body and mind, however. New research shows that engaging in exercise in micro bursts is actually one of the best fitness practices. You can get all of your wiggles out in just a short period of time and really make yourself physically fit in little time.
Improve Your Eating Habits
Your body can only support you to the same level that you support it. One of the best ways to support your body is by selecting pure, nutritious foods to eat for meals and snacks. Make sure to plan out your meals in advance so that you have time to make something healthy and delicious.
Get Better Sleep
Research shows that the higher your quality of sleep becomes, the better you will feel during your waking hours. Sleep is actually really good for your body and can help give you the energy that you need. If you don’t get enough sleep you can’t go through your whole REM cycle. That essentially means that you wake up more tired than you were before you went to bed.
Nurture High Quality Relationships
The science of social interactions shows how the people we keep closest to us, tend to shape us in major ways. It’s vital not to undermine the importance of cultivating and maintaining high quality, inspiring social relationships. It is definitely the people you love the most who can really lift you up and lead to become your best self.
Write It All Down
Whether you use a vision board, a journal or a phone app, writing down your goals pays off in income and in the quality of life. Once you have written down your goals, be sure to put them somewhere you can see them regularly. That way you can be reminded of your goals every day.
By trying each of these 6 tips on for size, you can begin your own process of inner engineering to transform your awareness from the inside out. Before you know it, you will be on the way to becoming your best self.
