We live in age where food which used to take us hours to obtain can be delivered to your doorstep in under 30 minutes. Never in the history of mankind have we had this much free time on our hands until now. Yet it’s sad to say that the majority of us waste it. We turn on our TV or our gaming console or medicate ourselves with alcohol or cigarettes just to burn time.
What should be really doing with all of this free time. Well if you are slightest a bit serious about becoming a winner in the game of life, here are the four most important things you need to start spending your time on.
Now this first task is crucial. With so much free time on our hands, we need to have the energy, to be active. A few centuries ago we used to move around and lift things. Almost all of our jobs required us to work out our bodies. Whether it be tending to the farms or creating tools in the workshop. But now, most of us work behind computer screens and registers. We aren’t getting the right amount of exercise that our body needs to function properly. Its actually been proven by studies that people who workout have more energy through out the day. If you don’t have energy you are going to spend majority of your free time on effortless things like Netflix and Gaming.
You’ve probably heard this advice a hundred times over but read what I am trying to say. The stuff that you are learning in school is outdated. The large majority of information you are learning over there will not be used once you graduate. This means that the large majority of people don’t know what in the world they are doing. Real life knowledge is like managing finances, social skills, dating, diet and fitness are basically not existed among the population. And in my opinion, this is actually a very good thing for you. This means that you can easily climb to the top, because well, your competition sucks. If you want to be successful in the game of life. You need to read the instructions manual, focus your reading on self-development books as they provide practical knowledge that can be applied in real life.
Meditation is one of those things that have been proven a hundred times over to be extremely beneficial. Yet nobody does it. Why? Its probably because on the surface, its one of the most boring tasks out there. You sit down and do nothing. Well, there’s lot more to it. When you meditate you are actually training your brain. You learn how to control what thoughts to focus on and which thoughts to ignore. This one skill is crucial to becoming a happier person. You’ll also have a lot more mental energy throughout the day. It’s so important actually, that if you have to ask me which one habit could change your life, I’d instantly respond with Meditation. Meditating for just ten minutes a day is more than enough to start reaping the benefits.
It’s my strong belief that everyone has a passion that triggers the inner child in them. It’s something that brings out a sort of excitement in you. The reason I listed this as the last task is because the other three supplement your ability to work on your passion. Reading gives you the knowledge to grow in your hobby. Meditation gives you the head space for creativity and exercise ultimately gives your body the energy to focus on this hobby even after a long days of work.
This hobby whether it’d be dance, art, writing, creating your own Make a Wish foundation. Whatever it is, its your source of fulfillment. Without it, you’ll not feel whole, you’ll feel as if there’s something missing in your life. And it’s my strong belief that if you work on your hobby long enough and own your craft, it can eventually be a source of income. Once you reach this stage, your life will transform that one you dread into one that excites you.
