5 Secrets to Living an Exciting Life
Life can be mundane and often draining a majority of the time, but it doesn’t have to be! Nonstop responsibilities coupled with the indecisiveness of what to do when you finally get a free moment can make life feel more like a chore and less like an adventure, but why keep trudging along like that? At Live Lethal, we want you to live your life to the fullest right here and now so you never have struggle with regrets later. Here are 5 secrets to living an exciting life:
1. Write out your bucket list. In case you aren’t familiar with the term “bucket list,” it’s a list of all the things you want to do before you (ahem) die. Taken at its face value, it doesn’t seem to be the most romantic or positive exercise. Yet, as you start writing your must-do’s, it does put life into the perspective that you have only so much time to get the things done that you want in the limited free time you have available.
2. Plan ahead. There is something to be said for the rush gained from spontaneity, but many of us do not have the luxury for last minute excitement. So, pick one thing from your bucket list and do it. If you don’t, the days, months and years will slip by without you experiencing anything new. Then, after you check off one bucket list entry, make plans to check off another.
3. Let your mantra be, “There is no tomorrow; only today and only now.” Procrastination is the surest way to live the same old life you always have. Start that new exercise class, sign up for the empowerment workshop, and broaden your horizons to infuse your life with newness.
4. Cut down on the spacing out. What happens when you use your one night out to go to your “favorite” restaurant or walk the same trail you have trekked for the past year? You space out. Your mind craves excitement for it to be healthy and engaged. Go somewhere new as often as you can, even if it’s to the new grocery store in your neighborhood or driving across town to meander around a park.
5. Be good to others. To truly create an exciting life, you must also feel fulfilled at a deeper level within yourself, which is achieved through being good to others as well as being good to yourself. If you shirk the opportunities to be benevolent to others, you will feel a sense of disconnection with life. Do your one good deed a day and your life will brighten as you spread the happiness.
At this very moment, set your goal to integrate new experiences into your life as much as possible. Then, share this article with your loved ones. After all, happiness is found in the company of others!
Yours for More Confidence, More Often,
