How to Improve Yourself, Live More, Use Coupons, and Find Deals (The Complete Guide)
Take a Few minutes Everyday to Chill Out
Life comes quickly, it doesn’t mean you should have to live quicker.
Know Your Long Term Goals
How are you going to enjoy yourself if you don’t know what you want to enjoy.
Work Toward Your Goals Everyday
Tell your kids you love them before they go off for school. Tell your partner how much they mean to you when they get back from work. If you have a business make a goal to achieve a given number of customers every week.
Achieving your long term goals doesn’t have to be an exhaustive ordeal. It is something you can do everyday.
Set Up a Price Alert
You can use a price alert system to help you save time and money.
With a price alert system you don’t have to continually sit around waiting for product prices to drop, but instead you get an email when they do. Also, because you are not stuck constantly checking prices it helps to combat excessive materialism . Here is one for amazon and here is one for flights. [for kayak.com you have to search for the flight and then the price alert button will appear just below the "change your search" button]
Today Stare at Something Beautiful
Beauty can be found almost anywhere, it is just that we as people can become so self centered that we only look at ourselves. When we end up becoming infatuated with our own egos then we can become so engrossed in our own failures and successes that we forget to view the beauty that is right in front of our faces.
“Money is Like Manure, If You Don’t Quickly Spread it Around it Brings Death and Stenches to Everything It Touches.”
Money is a resource that needs to be used. Invest some of your cash, save some of your cash, figure out what those necessities are and buy them.
Figure Out What You Need Then Look for Coupons
Walmart, Amazon, Target, and a host of other companies use coupons to try drive sales. With the existence of Google and the easy at which we can find the latest coupons there is no reason we should be stuck paying full price all of the time. Just make sure you don’t use coupons to buy extras that you don’t need, only go for that which you would have bought anyway.
Live A Little! Go to An Art Gallery or Find the Latest Interesting Place to Visit
Life is so much more enjoyable when we can go off and be creative. Pick some latent interest of your’s and go off and enjoy yourself!
Realize That the World is Malleable. Nations Come and Empires Fade Away. Don’t be Suprised if The Sky Falls from Time to Time
We can’t control everything. Look at the great Chinese empires, the dominance of the Persians, or the glory of Rome. All of these great empires rose and fell. If you hear on the news about how the world as we know is ending don’t be surprised. Change is the normal course of action.
People tend to get bent out of shape when major world events change some aspect of the modern system. It is much healthy to approach life with the perspective that change is guaranteed, the unknown is what type of change will occur.
Love Someone Today
Love is demonstrative, love is powerful, and yet love is subtle. Reguardless of the size of your chequing account you can make a pointed effort to love someone today. That extra kiss or unexpected $5 gift card to Starbucks can mean the world to someone. We don’t know if today will be our last, so we ought to live as though it were.
If this touched you or could help someone that is close to you I would really appreciate a stumble/tweet/link/facebook share.
[Remeber, life can get better. Look at this positive note from a Penn State Student.]
