Living a truly enjoyable life is something that many of us strive for – and it’s possible! Life is full of uncertainties, but there are many things we can do to increase our chances of feeling a sense of satisfaction, purpose, and joy.

Achieving a balance between work, rest, and play is often a critical piece of this puzzle. In this blog post, we’ll explore some tips for achieving this balance, and for cultivating an overall sense of wellbeing and personal fulfillment.

We’ll cover strategies for finding meaning and purpose in a busy life, for managing stress, and for taking time out to focus on the things that bring us joy. With patience, dedication, and the right set of tools, it is possible to enjoy life to the fullest. So let’s get started!

1. Take time for yourself

In the busyness of everyday life, it can be hard to remember to take time out for yourself. But it’s an essential part of enjoying life.

Taking time for yourself doesn’t mean you have to go on a vacation or a spa retreat. It can be something as simple as taking a walk, getting a massage, or taking a few deep breaths.

It’s about honoring yourself and your needs, and taking moments for yourself to just relax, reflect, and recharge. Taking time for yourself can be the gift that keeps on giving.

2. Prioritize your relationships

One of the best things you can do to enjoy life is to prioritize your relationships. Too often, we focus on our own ambitions and goals instead of nurturing our relationships with family and friends.

Taking time to connect with people you care about is essential to emotional wellbeing and can bring a great deal of joy to your life. Developing genuine relationships also helps you to feel more supported and connected to people who have your best interests at heart.

Make sure to set aside time each week to check in with your loved ones and to set aside special time for quality conversations.

3. Prioritize your health

It may be tempting to put your health on the backburner, but it should actually be your top priority. Taking care of your physical and mental well-being allows you to enjoy life to the fullest.

Eating nutritious meals, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly are essential for a healthy lifestyle. In addition, it’s important to set aside some time for yourself to relax and recharge.

Investing in yourself will have a positive effect on all aspects of your life.

4. Challenge yourself

One of the best ways to enjoy life is to challenge yourself. This can mean anything from taking on a new hobby or trying a new activity to learning a new skill or pushing yourself to reach a goal.

Challenging yourself can help you grow and develop, and it can also help you to appreciate the little things and find joy in the journey.

Push yourself to be the best version of yourself, and you’ll find that you’re able to enjoy life more.

5. Show gratitude

One of the best tips to enjoy life is to show gratitude. Gratitude is the recognition and appreciation of the good things in life. Being thankful and expressing gratitude is a powerful way to boost your happiness, improve your relationships, and find more joy in your life.

When we take the time to recognize the good things in our lives, we're more likely to be present, more patient, and more resilient when things don’t go as planned.

Make it a habit to express gratitude for the people, experiences, and things that you’re grateful for. You’ll be surprised how quickly your life will improve.

6. Laugh more often

One of the simplest and most enjoyable ways to enjoy life is to laugh more often. Laughter is a natural medicine that can help reduce anxiety and stress, while increasing happiness.

It can also help to boost your immune system, lower your blood pressure, and improve your overall mental and physical health.

Laughing with friends or family is especially beneficial because it helps to create a sense of connection, trust, and belonging. So, don’t be afraid to laugh out loud and make life more enjoyable.

7. Take risks

Taking risks can seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. When you take a risk and it pays off, you experience a feeling of accomplishment, joy, and pride that far outweighs any negative feelings you may have experienced.

Taking risks can also lead to new and exciting opportunities, so don’t be afraid to take a chance.

Remember, the only way to find out what you’re capable of is to step outside of your comfort zone and take a risk. Who knows – you may surprise yourself!

8. Appreciate the small things

One of the most important tips to enjoy life is to appreciate the small things. Too often, we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget to pause and appreciate the beauty of the world around us.

Even something as simple as taking a walk in nature can give us a much-needed perspective and help us reconnect with ourselves.

Take the time to appreciate the little things in life, like a beautiful sunset, a cozy blanket, or a cup of hot tea. These small moments of joy can add up to a lifetime of happiness.

What Makes People Successful

What Makes People Successful

Strategies for Success

What do successful people do that others don’t?

What motivates them to keep going?

Can anyone be successful?

What makes them different from others?


Successful people are confident, honest and driven.

These are attitudes, not skill.

Our attitude can improve our skills so we need to change our attitudes and become more focused and driven.

Our minds find it impossible to store all the information it receives in a day and so it deletes the unnecessary detail.  So you need to change your attitude to your business or your life.  You need to set goals, concentrate on knowing what you want to achieve and work towards achieving your goals.

But your goals need to be SMART goals:

Specific – know exactly what you want
Measurable – be able to follow the progress
Achievable – be within your capabilities
Realistic – be possible to do
Time – you must make the time to do it

You need to know exactly what your goals are, be able to set a plan and follow it, be achievable for you (e.g. don’t attempt to be a brain surgeon if you can’t stand the sight of blood), be possible to do (e.g. don’t try and think you can fly) and you must be prepared to put in the time to achieve your goals, or have the time to do it.

Seeing Things As They Are

Some days start off great and just get better while others start off bad and get worse.

Why is this?

It all depends on your attitude and what you’re focusing on.  If you’re in a bad mood then everything will seem bad because you’re focusing on it.

It’s just the same with your goals.  If you focus on missing them, then you will.

You see, our brain never hears the word ‘wont’ or ‘don’t’.  That’s why children always do what you tell them not to.  They never hear the word ‘don’t’.

So if you focus on not missing your goal by thinking ‘I won’t fail’, then you will.  Instead, tell yourself, ‘I will succeed’.

Forget Failure

Children learn faster than adults because they have no fear of ridicule or failure.

Children always look on the bright side:

Kids are curious - Adults are cynical
Kids love puddles - Adults hate rain

Babies learn to walk by setting a goal and working towards it.  When they fall down they adopt a different strategy, such as holding onto the furniture, and then they keep going and learning.  We should take a leaf out of a baby’s book, so to speak.

Never say ‘I can’t do this.’  Just take notice of what’s not working and change strategies.  This will move you closer to your goal.

What else stops you from achieving our goals?


Your beliefs can hinder you or help you, but they can only help you if you understand that they are only beliefs.

Events don’t shape your life.  It’s your interpretation of these events that shapes your life.

Your beliefs and certainties have the power to expand or destroy your true potential.

Beliefs are limiting, so it’s important to understand that they are only beliefs and not reality.

The past does not equal the future.  Just because you haven’t achieved something in the past doesn’t mean you can’t achieve it in the future.

You need to question your beliefs and where they come from.
Remember, you can change – but not if you believe you can’t.

Focus on what your limiting beliefs have stopped you from achieving. Change whatever is limiting you.

If you believe you’ll win, then you will.

Remember that you don’t have to be 100% successful in everything you do to be successful.  Every step you take to achieve your goal is a success.  And if something goes wrong, just chalk it up to experience – we learn from our experiences.

Things You Can Do Right Now

Always ask yourself:

What did I do well today?
What did I learn today?
What am I going to do differently tomorrow?

Never avoid failure.
Stride for success.
Keep trying different strategies.

We slump when depressed and sit tall when we feel successful.  Adopting these postures can affect our attitude and state of mind.

How you feel on the inside can affect how you look on the outside and this can influence people around you.  What you focus your mind on affects your body language.  Therefore you can change your state of mind by changing your posture.  So when you feel depressed, adopt the upright posture of a successful person.

People and circumstances can also affect your state of mind, but this can be controlled.  Instead of giving up letting external factors control your state of mind, adopt a positive attitude, stand tall and refuse to be influenced by negative things around you.

This is easier said than done because our responses are learned and our unconscious mind cannot always distinguish what is and isn’t real.

For instance; if you raise your hand to your mouth and imagine you’re sucking a lemon, you’ll wince.  The lemon may be imaginary, but your mind has a conditioned response which makes you wince.

Therefore, never forget:

If you think you can’t achieve something, then you wont.

                If you think you can achieve something, then nothing will stand in your way.
