10 Tips to Be Your Best You

No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change, be a better version of yourself.

– Madonna

Are you looking for life-affirming tools to be and become your best you?

You are in good company!

This is a common desire felt by most if not all of humanity. Aspiring to do and be “x,y, and z” is part of our makeup. This drives us, and when denied or ignored, it can keep us in a sticky holding pattern.

What lies at the center of wanting to be our best? Happiness, more confidence, and the ability to navigate comfortably in our daily lives.

So, how do you begin to move forward into all that you desire for “being” your best version of you? Think of this as a positive thoughtful journey meant to shape you from the inside out; Body, mind, and spirit.

The process of becoming your best you is not “one and done,” but rather a thoughtful compassionate place of self-paced growth.

Here Are 10 Easy Tips to be Your Best You:

  1. Focus on Intentional Self-Care

It’s time for you to be the CEO of you! Notice how you care for your physical and emotional wellbeing. This includes eating foods high in nutrients such as fresh fruits and veggies. Staying hydrated, tending to your emotional needs for a genuine connection, and self-love are also important.

  1. Invest In Yourself

When you invest in your personal and professional growth, you flourish. This may be pursuing a degree, a certification, attending workshops, or personal retreats. This could be hiring a life coach, working with a personal trainer, or even taking personal lessons. Investing in yourself sends messages to your emotional center and to your group that you matter.

  1. Learn New Things

Is there something that you desire to learn, experience, or continue to learn about? Moving forward from being curious into active action opens new opportunities and also fosters fun.

  1. Challenge Yourself Beyond Your Comfort Zone

Push back on feelings of resistance to doing and sharing. Life-affirming growth will blossom when you move past doubting yourself and stop being fearful of what you are meant to experience, learn, and share. Fear is nothing more than your emotions requesting your attention.

  1. Don’t Quit

In trying times, quitting amidst or before things have started to take off will send an imprint to our brains for “safety and security,” at all costs. The cost of quitting impacts our best-self and will stop us from seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. Foster Joy and Laughter

Smiling is contagious and laughter brings joy to the surface for both you and those in your circle. Studies show that smiling improves your mood and lifts others as well. Find something daily that brings a smile to your face and laugh more.

  1. Exercise and Move

Exercising is a great way to be your best you. It improves your mood, releases feel-good endorphins, reduces stress, and fosters greater focus and productivity. Try a ten-minute daily movement session like going for a walk to get started. Bring on the feel-good energy!

  1. Do for Yourself What You Do for Others

Pouring your energy into everyone and everything, as if you have an endless supply of untapped giving, will sadly leave you depleted. When you feel physically and emotionally depleted, your best you is buried. Replenish and maintain your energy by giving to yourself kind words, permission to rest, and time to reset. When you bring this concept to life, your best-self shines and thrives. It begins with you first.

  1. Build Patience

Bringing out the best of you involves growing your “muscle” of learning to respond, instead of reacting to your thoughts and other people’s words and actions. This is an attribute that will greatly expand and enhance your life as you tend to and cultivate the art of being patient.

  1. Practice Gratitude

Practice gratitude by taking time daily to notice and reflect on personal things you are thankful for. Gratitude naturally increases optimism, positive emotions, and makes you feel more alive to what is in the moment. This is the “life stuff” that fuels you to be your best you!
