It’s so overwhelming how many people today live their lives emptily profound, without feeling any joy but constant apathy, when actually we must all be in love with our lives.

Remember one thing – apathy is your worst enemy, because it is what eventually messes up with all of your childhood plans of one day becoming abundant in all aspects of your life.

When we are young, we are innocent and joyful, living our lives to the fullest and enjoying every single instance as if it was the last one. But once we start growing up, it seems, we enter a new era of darkness unknown to us yet. And we get stuck as we see no light at the end of the tunnel. We panic, try to fight, see no resolution, and eventually decide to get used to it, therefore welcoming indifference and apathy into our lives – as if we were destined from up above to live a miserable life.

To make it even worse, we continue hurting ourselves by getting into toxic relationships, subjecting ourselves to stressful situations and doing things we don’t really like.

But even so, the possibilities of the human mind are phenomenal. You might have never known it, or if you have, you might have not believed it yet hoping for someone to prove you wrong, but there actually is a way to reignite your life and reclaim your happiness. The path is not paved with gold, but once you pass through it, you graduate with flying colors.

So if you are searching for ways to fall in love with your life once and for all, and stop all that hurting, indifference and apathy from ruining your life, here is what you can start doing now:

How to Fall in Love with Your Life

1. Break Toxic Relationships And Meet Like-Minded People.

One of the worst things you’re doing to yourself is entering toxic relationships with people who are not on the same wavelength as you, and around which you don’t feel comfortable and at peace.

This is the kind of bad you’re doing to yourself with your own hand. It makes no difference whether it’s your best friend or colleague who makes you feel miserable. You want to surround yourself with people who make you feel good so that you can have a happy social life.

Meeting new people always does wonders and recharges your batteries. So instead of locking yourself up in the room you should start enjoying the world behind your wall. Practice it more often than never, and your quality of life will surge.

2. Stop The Hurt And Let Out The Smile.

This is more of a psychological way to fall in love with your life once again, and this time forever. It involves you calling off all of your negative feelings and emotions from filling your mind and ruining your day. This is when you can incorporate the self-talk and mirror techniques.

For those of you who are not familiar with the power of the mind, you’ll want to dive into some books on achieving self-love and using affirmations to direct your thoughts to become more positive and optimistic.

Self-talk – including such steps as reading positive affirmations aloud – will certainly be of help. While the mirror technique, in which you give yourself some loving while talking to yourself in the mirror, will certainly help you rethink your life and choose better thoughts.

3. Escape to a Relaxing SPA Retreat.

Sometimes, the only way to reignite your life is to escape from your daily problems to one of the most perfect places to regain control of your life and bring back the happiness.

SPA retreats are now available all across the world. And even if you might find them pretty expensive, they do bring value for your buck and do make a difference in your life.

You can spend as little as 3 to as many as 10 days in a spa retreat of your liking, and once you come back home you are going to feel energized and enjoy every moment of your life.

4. Psycho-Analysis Works.

Psychologists recommend psycho-analysis as the most efficient way to eradicate the cause of your distress. Even if it might take a while until you reach your goal and reignite your life, doing psycho-analysis on a daily basis will definitely be of huge help.

You will be able to take a look at your life from a different angle and figure out what’s the root of your problems, whether or not you have some false ideas about it and how to eventually fall in love with your life once and for all.

Psycho-analysis is some good stuff, but you better don’t play with the mind. Let’s say that it is safer to practice it with an experienced psychologist who can lead your mind into the right direction.

How to Look and Sound More Confident

How to Look and Sound More Confident

We associate confident people with success. But does confidence lead to success, or does success lead to confidence?

It’s a bit of a chicken and egg scenario. But there is plenty of evidence to suggest that working on your confidence levels will indeed boost your achievements in the workplace.

The thing about confidence is that it works two ways.

On the one hand, exude confidence and your clients and colleagues will have confidence in you – self-belief is very reassuring to others!

In fact, for better or worse, the mere appearance of confidence can be more likely to get you a promotion than your actual ability! When you think of some of the dubious phonies who’ve leapfrogged you in the past, it kinda makes sense, right?

And on the other hand, confidence builds confidence within yourself. When you adopt the look and the sound of the self-assured, you begin to feel bolder on the inside. You take risks and put yourself forward for opportunities you might otherwise not have. You begin to work with clear, bold strokes rather than inching ahead in half-measures.

Great – so how to create that feeling? Well, in the long-term, you can use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to deal with the underlying causes of your indecisiveness and lack of confidence. But in the short run, getting the aforementioned look and sound of self-belief is a fairly simple matter of adjusting the way you speak, listen, and move.

If you’re particularly shy, try starting with your hands.

Keep them out of your pockets.

Burying your hands in your pockets instantly gives the (possibly correct) impression that you are nervous or uncertain.

And even the (hopefully incorrect) impression that you are dishonest or lazy. Keeping your palms open and faced upwards is a way of opening up to those around you and exuding trust.

Likewise, a firm handshake of around two-five seconds communicates warmth and self-assuredness. A limp handshake, on the other hand, might create the impression that you feel out of your depth. And an over-strong handshake always feels like the giver is trying to prove something!

The next steps are to work on your eye contact and the way that you intone your sentences.

This can be a bit much to think about when you’re struggling with what you actually want to say. Which is why it’s best to start with the other stuff first.

But take it one stage at a time and you can gradually build a confident manner that will start to perpetuate itself by making you feel strong on the inside. For a full guide to the remaining tweaks, you can make to get that feeling, run through this new infographic from Poundplace.
