Living A Good Life


An excellent life is something you design on purpose.

It also need not be large or expensive. The little things we do on a daily basis add up to something significant and significant. Often, it’s the little things that have the biggest impact. Rose Kennedy was correct when she observed that “Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments.” There are a variety of ways to build a full and meaningful life, from straightforward daily routines to modest deeds of kindness. Focusing on these modest yet significant deeds can help us live more joyfully, purposefully, and satisfactorily. These modest behaviours, such as spending a few minutes each morning in meditation, expressing our thanks for the people and things we have, or even just going for a walk in the park, can help us develop a sense of wellbeing and happiness that last.

Therefore, pay attention to the little things in life and see how they add up to a truly meaningful and rewarding living if you want to lead a good life Although there isn’t a universally applicable response to this question, small changes in our daily routines, habits, and beliefs can have a significant impact on how we perceive life. By concentrating on the things that make you happy and fulfilled and acting to pursue them, you may take responsibility for your happiness.

  1. Give experiences more attention than goods. When we have experiences, we make memories that we will always treasure. These recollections may be of the people we meet, the locations we visit, or the activities we engage in. They can be joyful, sorrowful, amusing, or even frightful. But each of them is a part of our story.
  2. Constantly ask yourself, “Is this necessary?” “The majority of what we say and do is not necessary. If you can get rid of it, you’ll have more time and peace of mind. Always ask yourself, “Is this necessary? “” Marc Aurelius.
  3. Establish and maintain enduring bonds with your family, friends, and the larger community. It can provide people a feeling of support, belonging, and purpose. The foundation of a good existence is a strong social network. — Robert Waldinger.
  4. Examine the things that give your life meaning and purpose. Finding ways to apply your values, talents, and passions in your daily life may be one method to achieve this.
  5. Accept that life is brief. “Don’t act as though you’re going to live forever. Your destiny looms over you. Be excellent right away while you still have the chance to live. It was Marcus Aurelius.
  6. Take chances: Do not be afraid to venture outside of your comfort zone and experiment. You can develop, learn, and gain a sense of purpose and excitement through taking chances.
  7. Produce something, no matter how small: Producing something, whether it be a work of literature, a work of art, or a new recipe, can bring about existential fulfilment.

  11. Be appreciative of the people, experiences, and possessions in your life that contribute to your happiness. Be thankful for what you have.
  12. Have fun with life and try not to take yourself too seriously. Being happy and lowering stress can both be effectively achieved through laughter.

  15. Work on reflection of oneself. You can learn more about yourself or do more of what brings you life by reflecting on your thoughts, feelings, and activities.
  16. Pick worthwhile experiences right now. The biggest waste of life is delaying things since it robs us of the present while promising the future. The biggest barrier to life is anticipation, which depends on tomorrow and ignores present. – Seneca
  17. Set aside time for your favourite pastimes. Outside of work or other duties, engaging in interests and hobbies that you enjoy can bring enjoyment and satisfaction. It might be anything, such as reading, listening to music, or being outside.
  18. Live with the principle of giving back. It might provide people a feeling of fulfilment and purpose. It can take many different forms, like lending a hand to a stranger, offering information online for free, and more. Organising your time and priorities can lower stress and boost productivity, allowing you more time to concentrate on the things that matter most.
  19. Look for novel situations that will stretch you and make you stronger. It could entail sampling novel foods, travelling to new places, or taking on difficult tasks in your personal or professional life.
  20. Live in harmony with your nature. “A life that moves smoothly and easily.” – Epictetus
  21. Accept and adapt to change: Being open to change and welcoming new experiences can help you improve personally and lead to a more satisfying existence.
  22. Actively look for learning opportunities. Discovering new interests can keep your mind active and advance you.
  23. Establish a connection with the natural world. Take a short or lengthy walk. go on a walk in the wild. Take a stroll around the woodland. Experiencing nature can make people feel happier, less stressed, and more well-rounded.
  24. Forgiveness and the practise of letting go of resentments can help you move past unpleasant memories and enhance interpersonal connections.
  25. Develop resiliency: Resilience is the ability to recover from hardships and failures, which can help you maintain your motivation and carry on in the face of difficulty.
  26. Make a decision today to be happy rather than waiting. Because right now is constantly present, if you can be content in it, you’ll always be content. —Willie Nelson
  27. Be very explicit about your boundaries with others. By setting clear expectations and boundaries, you may decrease stress and enhance your relationships.
  28. Be kind and generous to others: Doing small acts of kindness and generosity, such as lending a helping hand or a kind word, can make life feel more meaningful and fulfilling.
  29. Review your routines, behaviours, and habits every month or every three months. “The life without inquiry is not worth living.” The Socrates
  30. Develop a spiritual connection: Whether via meditation, prayer, or other practises, developing a spiritual connection can give life a feeling of direction and significance.
  31. Keep in mind to savour the present and recognise the wonder and beauty of your surroundings. Living in the present can help you make the most of each moment because life is brief.

  35. Go towards the easy, and live a life where little is more. Trim your life of the things that aren’t necessary. A hectic life can leave you feeling empty. — Socrates

Hello Everyone, finally published my new book “Focus”. In this book, I took a poetic licence in considering the spiritual aspect of focus, which has rarely been done. Other books focus on the practical aspect and tell you to do this and that, but in my book, I discuss how we can find focus within ourselves without relying on an action-oriented approach. Any purchases or KDP reads will be greatly appreciated. If you like my books, do leave a review. Here’s my author page on Amazon –
