We all strive toward happiness in our lives, but that doesn’t mean we don’t make a few mistakes once in a while. If you want to live your life with fewer regrets, consider adding behaviors that help enhance happiness. There are several simple changes you can make to the way you approach your everyday life, at work and at home, that will make a big difference today and in the future.
Be of service.
Did you know that helping others is good for your overall wellbeing both physically and mentally? Being kind costs you nothing, so when someone earnestly asks for help take the time out of your day to be of service. Of course, you also need to understand when helping others crosses a line and make the healthiest choice to assist within reason.
To that end, it’s also important to set boundaries. Busy-ness is not a terminal condition, but it can lead to stress and even physical repercussions if you’re not careful about what you say yes to. Learn to say no when appropriate and allow yourself to only select the activities which are important for your happiness and wellbeing.
Learn from mistakes.
Mistakes are not a sign of failure. Even the most successful people make mistakes. The difference is how you react to them and learn from them. If you don’t allow your self to make mistakes or spend your time beating yourself up over them, they become obstacles rather than learning experiences.
Don’t forget about your friends and family. If you want to have fewer regrets in your life, make time for the people who are important to you throughout the course of your life. Don’t skip mealtime with your family. Don’t miss out on social activities with your friends. Cultivate those relationships to foster a sense of community in your life.
Learn the art of compromise.
Lastly, you want to learn how to compromise without leading to regret. Always getting your way is unhealthy, as is allowing others to always get theirs. Good relationships thrive on compromise where healthy solutions are found for dealing with an impasse. Be willing to compromise while also standing up for the goals you have for the future.
