6. Develop Your Spiritual Relationship
Invest in yourself by taking time to meditate, pray, or do something that connects you to an emerging healthy spiritual relationship. When you understand who you are and what your purpose is, you’ll begin to live with peace and passion. It will become difficult for things to disrupt your spirit.
Letting go is a tremendous way to recharge your life by removing the heavy burden of pain, anger, and hatred. If you have someone in your life that hurt you and you haven’t forgiven him or her, now is the time to do so. It’s not as much about them as it is about you. They may not be aware that they’ve hurt you, perhaps they don’t care or they’ve already asked for forgiveness. To forgive means to let go of toxins that are destroying you. Accept the opportunity to progress in a healthy manner.
8. Give Back
Give of yourself as a reminder of how much you really have. Volunteer at a shelter, food bank, senior home, or anywhere that allows you to see your blessings. We are quick to point out what we don’t have but seeing it from someone else’s perspective can be humbling and bring appreciation.
9. Mix Things Up
Explore life by venturing outside of your comfort zone. Go to an art gallery, hiking, skydiving, or do anything that allows you to take in more enjoyable, educational, or peaceful activities. Infuse a little laughter and excitement into your mundane life and spread the enthusiasm.
10. Invest in Healthy Relationships, and End the Unhealthy Ones
Don’t continue on with a relationship that isn’t healthy. Seek counseling if you want to make it work or face reality and know when to let go. If the relationship is an unhealthy disaster, make changes the right way and with passion so that you can begin to enjoy life. Don’t be afraid to rebuild.
