Top 3 Reasons to Invest in Yourself

Hello world!

At times, it can be hard to stay motivated to maintain your health and well-being. Here are some reasons to keep at it!

1. Your Future Self Will Thank You for It

BAD DAY

We’ve all had those bad days. The more we let bad days take control of us and our health and happiness, the worse we will feel. It’s easier said than done but learning from bad days while also moving on and maintaining control will help us be better prepared for the future and all the bad days still ahead. It’s important to maintain a healthy perspective! Instead of “This day sucked.”, think “What made this day suck, and how can tomorrow be better?”.

2. Your Friends, Family, and Coworkers Will Thank You for It


Maintaining your well-being by investing in yourself will no doubt have a positive impact on your relationships. Think of the activities (and change in activities) involved in maintaining exceptional health physically, mentally, spiritually, financially, etc. Investing in yourself will make you a better person to be around; your everyday decisions and conversations will all be based on a positive, healthy sense of well-being.

3. You Will Do More


If we don’t take time to invest in ourselves, we have a harder time staying motivated and pursuing goals. Inevitably, this will result in us taking more time to accomplish fewer things. Conversely, if we work to maintain our happiness and well-being, we will be more motivated and likely accomplish more things in the same or less amount of time. In other words, we have a better chance of making a difference in the world!

Change

Change. An idea that causes dread and turmoil in so many people and families, yet also sparks hope. The world, people, places, everything is constantly changing. Impermanence is one of the only sureties we have. Change can come in an infinite number of ways. Change often shows up when least expected and is processed differently by everyone.

Yet, with all the turmoil it can cause, change brings opportunity. Change is especially vital is this way. A new job, a new life, a new tree, a new family; all are opportunities invited by change.

Why do things have to change? They’re fine the way they are.

As noted before, change is one of the only sureties we have. There is no guarantee that what you rely on today will be here tomorrow. In fact, quite the opposite is true; ‘the way things are’ is always changing. With the exception of well kept-up items and property, nothing will stay the way it is. This can be very depressing and hard to accept but also brings hope. Good days pass, but so do the bad days.

In this sense, bad times can be somewhat an inspiration for great change. Take, for example, the Civil Rights Movement, a monumental step of positive change that has indeed changed America. The great progress seen in the Civil Rights Movement could not have happened without the seemingly endless years of mistreatment and discrimination. So, when change comes your way, thank it for the opportunity it brings to make something positive out of bad times, and know that those times will pass. Cheers to change!
