How to stay content in life?

Are you content in life or are you a complainer? 

We all want to have an easy life, but unfortunately that is not the case sometime. Undesirable things happen and unwanted circumstances occur, so we end up facing the challenges in life.

Life challenges impact many folks in a negative way causing us stress and anxiety. As we are not sure of what is to come, we tend to start worrying over the future and we stop being grateful and thankful to what we have.

Focusing on what we have is the key during these rough times. When we are thankful for the current situation, we avoid unwanted stress. This doesn’t mean we need to accept whatever life throws at us, what this means we are trying to keep a positive state of mind.

How to stay content in life

1. Watch your self talk

When you are in the mid of chaos or stressful event, it is easy for your mind to lose its positive state and it is easy to start talking negatively to yourself.

What you need to do is remind yourself of all the achievements that you have accomplished. You are a strong person and worth of all that is good and beautiful.  Overcoming mental laziness is crucial if you need really want to become content and winner in life.

2. Focus on daily successes

Most of us tend to forget our daily successes and only focus on the big ones. What you need to do is learn to appreciate the daily successes as well. The more you focus on your current accomplishments, the more content you will become.

3. Be grateful for your blessings

How many blessings you have that you take for granted? People tend to focus on what they are missing in life instead of being thankful for what they currently have.

As I mentioned in my previous article “How to be grateful in hard times” that being grateful is a major key to being content in life especially when things are not going your way. 

Take a few moments and go over some of the things that you currently have and trust me, your mental state will change.

4. Learn to forgive

Nothing affects you worse than holding grudges and being resentful against someone. Holding bitter feelings against someone not only hurts you in the long run, but it also affects your current mind set.

Forgiving someone does not mean you accept what the person has done, it only means you are letting go of the resentful feelings so you stop experiencing unwanted and negative emotions.

5. Practice meditation

I have talked a lot about meditation in many of my posts that is because meditation been proven to help you clear your mind from all the stress that you tend to accumulate. Many folks think that meditation is some weird activity, but when they start understanding practicing it, they begin to appreciate the benefits of meditation.  (For more info, see how to start practicing meditation)

Meditation not only makes you relaxed, but it also helps you stay content free from worries and anxiety.
