5 Ways To Live A More Free Life

Untitled Our lives fly by at such a fast pace that sometimes, to feel more free, we need to take a step back and slow down. If you're feeling snowed under with lots of little things, here's five ways to live a more free life.





1. Say Yes

If you're lacking in a little positivity, change it. I'm not saying you have to walk around with a smile tattooed across your face - that's not natural, but where you can, turn that frown upside down and starting living a life where you say 'yes.' From a hike at the weekend to pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, switching things up can do you a whole world of good.


2. Write It Down

It doesn't have to be anything lengthy, but jotting down anything bothering you, or simply documenting your day can rid your mind of any worries. You don't have to ever re-read it, but it can put any niggles aside and let you focus on the good.


3. Be Selfish

I'm not saying be horribly selfish, but a certain amount is needed to live your best life. Obviously you'll have responsibilities: your job, friends, family, partner, children etc, but remember to look after #1 too - and yes, that means you. Want to go on holiday? Book it. Don't want to go to that networking dinner? Don't go. Sometimes going along with decisions or a life that you're not enjoying or you don't wanna do will make you feel trapped, and is damaging to your life.


4. Be Thankful

You should live every day with a thankful heart. Whilst I'm proudly British, one holiday I'm envious of is Thanksgiving, and it's a celebration we should all take note of. Because there's always, always something to be thankful for. And if you ever struggle finding what 'that' is, start from the very basics - you've got a roof over your head, people who love you and you're simply alive. We used to write down three of these positive vibes once a week and it always cheered us up.


5. Make Time For 'Me Time'

Being with people is great, but it's really important to take time for you, and even enjoy your own company. It can be something as small as 30 minutes reading alone or taking a jog, or something as big as taking a vacation solo. It gives you chance to recharge your batteries and clear your head.
