3 Signs You’re Not Living Your Best Life & How to Improve

living your best life

At some point in your life you will feel like you’re not living up to your potential or start to question “what is the point of all of this?” Great news is that you’re not alone! And that doesn’t make you strange.  It would be amazing for everyone to always be living their best life but that is not reality.  So how do we know we are in a rut and how do we get ourselves out of it?

You are constantly negative and complaining a lot:

We have all met the person who seems to always have a black cloud over their head. They are always always surrounded by drama.  Is that because they are the unluckiest person in the world? Or are they creating this negative cycle?  I firmly believe we can create our environment and choose to have our world be positive or negative.  Does that mean it will always be rainbows and sunshine?  Of course not, but I do believe negative energy feeds off negative energy and positive off positive energy.  So be mindful of your thoughts as they affect your attitude. And remember your attitude affects your words and your words affect your actions.

You are surrounded with people who don’t bring value to your life:

This is the way the universe works in that you attract what you are bringing to the table.  Misery loves company and your closest group of friends would have been negative as well.  One of the hardest exercises to do is to look around at your 5 closest friends. Then realize they are a direct reflection of who you are.  Are you proud of that reflection? Or is it time to make a change and find a more positive group of people who will inspire you to live your best life?  This doesn’t mean you can’t keep your friends around that are negative. But it may be time for a group decision to lift one another up. I constantly ask the question: Do they lift me up or bring me down and how am I showing up for them?

You are not taking care of your mind and body:

It is extremely difficult to eat right, sleep enough, workout, meditate and read. Especially if you are questioning you are not inspired and excited about life.  The good news is that it is all connected! By simply getting that solid 6-8 hours of sleep, then you have a much better chance to want to exercise.  Once the body is moving then you want to give it good fuel and eat the right things and now we are creating a positive routine that is building momentum in your life.  Start with the small change of getting a solid night sleep and commit to moving a little bit and next thing you know the only time you are a bit cranky is if you didn’t get to the gym.

The small changes make all the difference and you and your loved ones deserve the very best version of you.  Take time to reflect on where you are in your life and if you want to improve it, just start by verbalizing that you want to make a change.  That is the first step to living your best life!
