Building Your Personal Life
10:52:28 2024-02-13 273

1- Make time for your family. What will you remember when you grow older? Will it be nailing the Krimsley account? Or will it be seeing Ben ride a bicycle for the first time? Make a conscious effort to separate work and family time and be “all in” with your family when you’re together.

  • Discuss your work hours and expectations with your boss so that you can set some boundaries to prevent work from leeching away at family time.
  • Spend time with your spouse and children even if it means getting everyone together in the morning to exercise or stretch for fifteen minutes before leaving the house.
  • Institute a "no electronics" rule at the dinner table so that the family will pay attention to each other, rather than to their screens.
  • Take regular family vacations. This is a good way to focus solely on family without the worries of the workplace that follow you home.
  • Discuss childcare with your spouse. If you’re both working you’ll want to come up with a firm and fair plan with specific responsibilities for both parents.

 

2- Create a circle of good friends. Lifetime friendships enrich your life. Friendships add texture to your connection with the world because you're sharing experiences, reliving good moments, making bonds with people upon who you can rely.

  • Make a list of people in your life who you feel close to. Invite them to your home for dinner or tea or to watch a movie. Your home environment allows for less self-conscious conversation.
  • Volunteer for a project or group for which you have conviction. Strong friendships are more easily made when you work together on areas of mutual concern and interest.
  • Use your current contacts to make friends. If there are people who you've met briefly through friends and liked, try getting in touch with them through your mutual friend.
  • Join a book reading circle. These circles usually meet regularly. Many of them last for years. Lifetime friendships are formed over a shared interest.


3- Get involved in activities for which have conviction and to which you connect. What is it that you like to do? What activities are you drawn to that seem the most authentic and richest in terms of the experiences they provide? Make a list.

  • Take a class that focuses on an area of interest. Cooking, coding, painting, archery . . . there are numerous classes available.
  • Sign up for a hiking or nature club if you like the outdoors.
  • Volunteer to be a big brother or big sister.

 

4- Take good care of your body. The physical state in which you arrive at your future can be like a payoff from a good investment. Take care of yourself so that you'll benefit in later years.

  • Maintain a healthy diet that includes fresh produce, lean protein sources, dairy products, and whole grains.
  • Eat wholesome meals three times a day. When you don’t depend on one big meal daily, your body will reach a level of nourishment that diminishes cravings and helps you to naturally eat less.
  • Make regular visits to your doctor. Think in terms of “preventive maintenance.” Vaccinations, screenings and regular check-ups can prevent serious illness that adversely affect your future.

 


5- Exercise regularly. Exercising has countless benefits including reducing the risk of heart disease and prolonging life. Exercising will help you to maintain normal weight. It will tone your body, strengthen muscles, keep bones strong and improve mood and sleep.

  • Try for 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise.
  • Begin by walking 15 minutes or so every other day and gradually increase the time and pace until you're jogging 30 minutes every other day.
  • Alternately, try aerobic exercise, 25 minutes of vigorous activity three days per week.
  • Build muscle and maintain bone density through strength or resistance training. You can join a gym or work with weights at home.

 


6- Take care of your mind. When your state of mind is good, you make good decisions about all aspects of your life. You feel better about your life.

  • Get enough sleep. Try for a regular sleep schedule. Choose calming activities before bed. No electronics in bed. Being sleepy makes concentration more difficult, raises stress levels and increases mood swings.
  • Steer clear of drugs and alcohol. Keep your mind sharp.
