5 Ways to Make Your Life More Exciting
Are you bored with your life? Are you not satisfied and feel that your life is miserable? Do you want to make your life more exciting? No worries, I have got your back.
Often, we get frustrated with life and blame others for making it worse. We develop bad habits and then slowly destroy us. We may worry about our future and get stressed about it. Life is an adventure that we should enjoy and live every moment of it to the fullest. So here are five ways to make your life more exciting-
1. Do what you love
If you are bored with your life, it is probably because you don’t love your work. So, you have to find something which you love doing and spend more time with it. It could be anything like- drawing, poem writing, story writing, singing, dancing, cooking, or photography. If you get better at it with time, you can convert this passion into a profession and make your living with it.
When you do what you like, you would completely immerse yourself in work and feel immense satisfaction. This work will not be work anymore; it would be fun. And ultimately, your life would be colorful, and you would live an exciting life.
2. Laugh every day
Have you not heard the famous saying- Laughter is the best medicine? Laughter is one of the best ways to make your life more exciting. It is proved by science that laughing every day can reduce your stress, anxiety, depression and improve your mental health condition. Laughter helps you to forget your worries and enjoy every little thing. One of the world’s best comedians, Charlie Chaplin, said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”
So, I would highly recommend laughing every day. You can do anything which makes you laugh- you could watch comedy shows, read jokes, read a funny story, or laugh with your friends. You can also laugh at your own mistakes and weaknesses, which would further help you take everything lightly and not get stressed.
3. Express gratitude
If you have food to eat, water to drink, clothes to wear, and a roof over your head, you are far luckier than millions of unfortunate people out there who hardly get anything to eat, don’t have a house to live and wear tattered clothes.
But still, we feel that we are not lucky. It happens because we take what we have for granted and focus only on those we don’t have. The trick here is to remind yourself of everything you have and express gratitude to the universe for it. Say thank you for every small thing you have- food, water, clothes, parents, good health, freedom, the device you are holding now, internet connection, etc. Expressing gratitude will make your life more enjoyable.
3. Accept everything
Often, we build strong expectations, but we feel the real pain when things go against our expectations. For example, you expected good grades in your exam, but somehow you scored less marks and got terrible grades. This would stress you and make you feel low. You would get stuck here and won’t be able to move ahead in life. Expectations are the cause of most of our pain and misery. It is expectations that make our life gloomy and sorrowful.
The solution here is to accept everything as it happens and expect nothing. This is one of the most powerful ways of living an exciting life. Accept your bad grades, find your mistakes and accept them, learn from them, and next time make sure you don’t commit the same mistakes again.
5. Overcome your fears
Do you have fears? Fear to get criticized, fear to lose money or fear of failure? We all have fears, and it is pretty common. But the problem arises when we become so afraid of our fears that we get paralyzed by them, don’t take any action, and run from facing them.
Running from your fears would lead to a highly limited and miserable life. To live an exciting life, you have to stand up and face your fears. Whatever your fears are, just face them, and you would realize you are far more powerful than your fears. Every time you defeat your fears, you make your life more exciting.
The five things you can do to make your life more exciting are doing what you love, laughing every day, expressing gratitude, accepting everything, and overcoming your fears. Eleanor Roosevelt rightly said, “The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” So, enjoy every moment of your life and live it to the fullest.
