In these two years of my life, I have learned several ways of making life easier.
You must have faced many problems too, like everybody and must have thought about making life easier, and that’s why I planned to write a blog post for you.
I have shared 15 ways to make life easier, and I hope this helps you.
Here are The 15 Best Ways To Make Your Life Easier
1. Don’t Have Expectations
Expectations can make your life harder. The best way you can make your life easier is to not have expectations, and that’s what I’ve learned.
When you have zero expectations, everything else is just a pleasant surprise. – Gary Vaynerchuk
It is just a universal law not to expect anything in return, and in fact, you will live a happy and easy life.
Often, keeping expectations from your loved ones, kids, friends, etc., disappoints you like hell, and that’s why it is much better to keep your expectations at zero and then every day will be easier.
If somebody lets you down, don’t punish yourself by overthinking being sad. Just be kind and accept that expectations make life harder, not easier.
Remember that not expecting anything is a strength, and expectation is an enemy.
2. Leave Toxic People
Do you want to make your life easy and happy?
Then here’s what I have done and I advise you to do the same. Just remove that toxic person from your life.
Whether they are your friend, relative, or lover, you should not make room for anyone who brings negativity in your life.
If someone is not happy in your happiness, always ignores, trolls you, then he doesn’t belong in your life.
If you want to make things right with that toxic friend or lover of yours, then give it a try, but not more than once. You are not a rehab. Just be kind, have compassion for that person, but don’t try to fix him/her.Mukund Kapoor
Just normalise leaving toxic people behind. Trust me, this will really make your life easier again, and this is something I have learned after a long time.
3. Leave Ego Behind
There’s a beautiful say which goes, “When the ego is lost, limit is lost you become infinite, kind, beautiful.”
This is really true because the ego is the enemy of your mind. We are program to think big, live big, become excellent, be better from others, be ambitious, etc. But this only grows our ego. Just remember that we are just another species and nothing more than that.
Be humble and kind. Kindness is what makes life beautiful, not only yours but others too. You only have an ego when you lack knowledge and wisdom. Someone with wisdom has no room for ego.
Ego is a poison that tastes sweet but makes your life bitter.
4. Learn To Say No
“No”, often treated as a negative word but trust me to learn to say no because it can save you from many things in life.
Yes, saying no can hurt your partner, your boss, your relative, or it might disappoint your parents but if you don’t feel something right, just say no.
Don’t feel guilty about saying no. It can be hard for you if you always accepted everything in your life without questioning but just learn this, this simple “no” can make your life 10x easier.
You have to learn to say no to anything that makes you feel unhappy without feeling guilty. Setting boundaries is healthy. You need to learn to take care of yourself.Mukund Kapoor
You believe something, stay firm on it, prioritise your own priorities, just learn it, and then you’ll be happy in life.
5. Follow Good Content On Social Media
Your mindset and your life depend upon what you consume and from where you consume it.
I made my life really hard when I was consuming so much political news on Twitter and negative stuff on Instagram and Facebook. It really affected my mental health, and my perception of life changed.
I became a blamer; this happens with many young kids who just stay active on social media for a longer period and consume content without being aware of what they are consuming.
To make your life easier, consuming good content is the best way to be in a healthy mental state.
Remember that what you consume either builds you or break you, so just be aware.
Give yourself permission to look through all social media platforms and remove anything which is adding noise, doesn’t help you in any way, doesn’t add value in your life to become the best version of yourself.
6. Be Grateful
Being grateful is the key to a happy life. If you have never tried being grateful, then, man, you are making a mistake.
Just try once; try to be thankful for everything you have, shelter, food, loved ones, parents, money, etc. The basic human nature is not to get satisfied; after one need gets satisfied, we desire more, which goes on.
Remember that if you are happy with what you have, you’ll be happy with what you will get in the future.
7. Do Hustle But Don’t Take Your Sleep For Granted
Many motivational videos stick to the point that good things happen to those who hustle, sleepless and dream more.
Do you know this doesn’t make sense? Sleep is as important as your hustle. You want to hustle and make your dream come true, then do it but do not take your sleep for granted.
Your life is miserable if you can’t sleep like a baby when you want.
Remember that if you do not take enough sleep, you will suffer from fatigue, mood swings, difficulty concentrating, and so on. So do sleep for 8 hours minimum.
8. Learn Investing As Soon As Possible
From our childhood, we have observed our parents saying “do learn saving“, save as much as you can but never heard them saying do learn investing. The fact is they were never taught about investing.
The word investing for them means property, FD, RD and a few more. But now, the world is changing, and with change comes new opportunities. There are many investments options like stock markets, mutual funds, cryptocurrency, and so on.
How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in savings accounts? I rest my case. — Robert G. Allen
The best part about being young is you have time, and in that time, you can use the power of compounding. So do learn investing; it will make your life easier in future by giving good returns on your investments.
9. Make Peace With Your Past So It won’t Spoil The Present
The best way to make your life easier in the present is to move on with your past. If you will not, it will spoil your entire life because people who cannot come out of their past become prisoners of their minds.
You cannot change your past. Just accept it and move on because life goes on. Just don’t repeat the negative situations of your past over and over because the day you forgive yourself and free yourself from its clutches, you build a wonderful future.
Painful experience comes to awaken you, not to punish you.
10. Practice Patience
Do you know why 90% of people in this world quit and fail?
They lack patience. Remember this one tip in life – everything takes longer than you think, because no matter how much you plan, sometimes things don’t work according to you. You need patience in life, no matter what you do. No big business, actor, content creator, athlete, or investor reaches their highest potential overnight.
Things take time, a lot of it, and you should accept it.
Fall in love with patience and success will fall in love with you.
11. Learn Cooking
See, it’s really impossible to eating out every day. You can survive on restaurants food for 2 days max, and then you’ll also get bored and screw your body.
Home-cooked food takes care of your digestive system, and a good digestive system takes care of your health, and as you all know, that healthy mind resides in a healthy body.
Both boys and girls need to learn to look because you will not always get home-cooked food.
What if, because of work, you went on a trip abroad without your family? What if that place is Thailand and you are a vegetarian? How will you survive? And that’s why knowing how to cook is important.
Learn to cook, and trust me, this makes life really easy as it made mine.
12. Be Kind And Humble
Being kind helps both emotionally and physically. When you be kind to someone, your body releases many stress-relieving hormones, which helps you in being calming down.
This doesn’t mean you fake being humble because your true nature will come out at the end of the day; just learn to be humble, and eventually, you’ll grow.
Just treat everyone with dignity and respect, leave your ego, start listening to others, apologize for mistakes and just be kind by helping someone.
13. Read and Read a Lot
Reading good books, blog posts like mine(haha) or reading good magazines can influence you and develop your mindset.
Reading good books opens another dimension where you travel some unknown worlds; it can influence you like no one.
By reading, you get exposed to many more perceptions, motivations, ideas and beliefs of people you cannot be exposed to in the real world. Reading books will definitely make your life beautiful and easier because you’ll grow mentally.
Books, especially good ones, make you wise but remember to apply what they teach you in your life.
14. Enjoy Your Own Company
Sometimes learning to be alone. It is not always when you feel like talking to someone or sharing your feelings with someone, and that’s totally normal. We are human beings; just enjoy your own company sometimes.
But how this will make any difference in your life?
You learn so much about yourself when you be alone; you become aware of your dislikings, what makes you sad, what brings your peace and much more.
When I feel unmotivated or sad, I just sit alone in front of a mirror and talk to myself.
15. Adapt Change
People who don’t adopt change are the ones who make life hard for themselves. You should not become a frog who spends his entire life in a well.
You know the people who win are not always the ones who are wise and intelligent, they are the one who adapts change.
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. – Stephen Hawking
People who don’t readjust themselves with changing times never grow; they just end their growth, making their lives boring and miserable.
Remember that the only things that are constant in life are change, nothing else, and how well you adjust your life according to your success.
So here’s what you should always remember: if you want to make your life easier, just be adaptable, kind, patient, read a lot, leave your ego and past behind, because if you do this, you will notice a drastic positive change in your approach to life.
Just remember that life does not suck, and it has much more to it.
You just need to be around some good, positive people, and then life will not only seem to be easy but also beautiful and simple.
