Life satisfaction is being happy about your life as it is right now. Being content and feeling fulfilled are what we ultimately strive for. It does not preclude ambition. It is simply gratitude, appreciation and acceptance. True contentment is a deep-seated sense of accepting who you are.
If you hope to cultivate more satisfaction, here are some ideas to help you on your journey.
Figure out what soothes you. Find a hobby that quiets your mind. Make a point to take time out of your busy schedule to practice this activity.
2- Have Goals
If you can identify a goal that is worth pursuing you will be more likely to be satisfied with where you are and you will be more positive about yourself.
If your thoughts remain positive it gives you the strength and commitment to continue. You must master seeing the good in every situation.
Offer kind words and actions. The more good you put out in the more you will receive back.
It’s more productive to continue developing your current skills. You will live a more fulfilling life if you emphasize the parts you like about yourself.
Being compassionate and helping others will improve your self-esteem. It is fulfilling to bring a smile to someone else’s face.
All emotions can be positive in some contexts and negative in others. It doesn’t help bottling them up.
Regular exercise, the right food choices and a consistent sleep schedule can reduce stress and anxiety while boosting your self-esteem and happiness.
Regardless of what you achieve in the pursuit of stuff, it’s never going to bring you to an enduring state of contentment.
10- Ditch Your Phone
Turn off all electronics. Let your mind wander free for a change. Read. Meditate. Take a walk and pay attention.
Aim to visit a new place. Experience and enjoy new activities. Your experiences belong to you.
12- Stay Mindful
Sometimes you want to escape, but by practising mindfulness, you experience all aspects of life more fully and you are more engaged.
Satisfaction is simply a mind game you play with yourself. You have complete control over the outcome.
