10 Ways To Be More Satisfied With Your Life Now – Part 2
“People’s life satisfaction has fallen gradually during the past 10 years, from an average of 7.3 to 6.9 (measured on a 0-10 scale). This is twice as large as the OECD average decline.”
We all experience highs and lows, but if you feel a disconnection to your essence, wonder what your purpose is or feel that you are just not satisfied with life, here are the last five reasons and suggestions that may help you create a more positive outlook, increase your life satisfaction and love your life: (See part one for the first five):
Feeling Dissatisfied With Your Physicality:
Getting healthy and fit is a challenge for many of us. We don’t dedicate the time or make the best health choices. It doesn’t have to be so difficult. Start where you are and make small changes. Can you eliminate a toxin from your diet? Toxins are more responsible than you may be aware of contributing to overeating, retaining weight and feeling sluggish and much more. Educate yourself on making healthy choices about what you are consuming. What is it? Where is it sourced? Can you incorporate more exercise? Do something you love to do! Play with your pets, go for a nature walk, attend a class and meet new people while you are getting fit.
Feeling Like You Are Never Enough:
You are. You were since you were born. Know this. You are a miracle and know that. Implementing actions that reinforce self-love and gratitude rituals will help you to ease into your role of feeling grateful, loved and enough.
Overwhelm can come from internal as well as external factors like overpromising, perfectionism and clutter (mentally and in your home). What can you release? What no longer (and maybe never did) serves a purpose? People, thoughts and objects, all of it, release what doesn’t serve you. Organizational specialists and Emotional therapists can help if you don’t know where to begin. You will see, changing your environment and thoughts will release the feeling of being overwhelmed, and more often than not, these go hand in hand.
Feeling Like There Is Never Time For You:
When we don’t give ourselves time for us, we can end up feeling lonely, lost and depressed. Sounds contradictory? Isn’t being alone or ‘me time’ lonely? It is so important to get your ‘me time’ in as it’s your self-love time. Get some good healing and pampering in by going within for your ‘me time’ with meditation or prayer. Re-connect to your heart and spirit through self-expression like creating something, art, cooking or by spreading time out in nature. Spiritual experiences as well as a bit of pampering, like a massage, are great ways to spend ‘me time’. Wake up early, create a routine or schedule and most of all, promise yourself you will make time for you.
Feeling A Lack Of Purpose:
“Researchers believe that adults begin to feel a diminished sense of purposeful pursuit and experience due to the gradual changes in social roles that accompany increasing age.” Source: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/making-sense-chaos/201404/the-pernicious-decline-in-purpose-in-life-old-age To remedy the feeling of lack of purpose, take action. What can you do, daily or at least often enough that makes you feel great? Getting up and moving, volunteering your services, writing, getting a part-time job that gives back, etc. These are just a few suggestions along with defining what you wish to achieve or give to the world and create a personal affirmation or mantra from those desires. For example “I am Love and Kindness and share it freely.”

The Wellness Universe vision is, quite simply, world peace. We believe this is achieved by supporting, empowering and celebrating wellness professionals and World-Changer leaders around the globe. If we systematically and practically support leaders, provide them with a community and a platform through which to share their passion, message and expertise, they will be positively and profoundly affected and this in turn will increase their reach, impact and ability to educate and inspire true and lasting whole health in people the world over. The Wellness Universe is a catalyst for this.
