How to Make Your Life Enjoyable

It’s really quite simple – your life can be filled with fun, love and enjoyment or it can crammed full of stress, anxiety and darkness. It’s a simple choice that you can make at any time.

Should you decide to make your life enjoyable the first step is to decide what “enjoyable” actually means to you. Does it mean lazing on a beach all day, or does it mean achieving a long held ambition, or does it mean playing with your kids, or does it mean watching TV all day long. The trick here is to think about what you would be doing every day for most of the day that would be enjoyable.

A word of advice; it may be that you don’t have to change a great deal about your life. It is possible, for instance, that simply by changing your attitude towards your work you could make it a lot more enjoyable. Or you might just need to renegotiate your contract of employment. In this context I should point out that work is one of the main areas where we can achieve goals and gain a sense of fulfilment, both of which are enjoyable aspects of life.

Once you have decided that you want to make your life enjoyable you need to create a vision of how you will behave in order for your life to be enjoyable. “What are you like when you are enjoying life? What do you look like? How do you feel?”

Then, when you have created your vision of how you want to feel and behave so that you can enjoy your life, you need to take charge of your mind. First you need to be constantly alert, aware of what you are doing and how you are doing it. Being aware of your actions allows you to make the constant corrections to your behaviour that will keep you in the correct groove.

Over time, as you do these simple things constantly and consistently, you will form the habit of enjoying your life.

This is just a short article you can get a lot more detail of how to make your life enjoyable from my book Feeling Groovy.

No. 4 – Awareness of Your Behaviour

Your behaviour is your body language, your gestures and your speech. It is what you do and the meanings you convey to yourself and others by your actions. It is how you move around and get things done.

The movements of your body are generated by your thoughts which dictate what your body does. Your feelings dictate the level of energy that you input into your actions.

Once your thoughts have sent instructions to your body telling it what to do they then monitor your actions to make sure that you are carrying out their instructions correctly.

Therefore your bodily actions feed into your mind and can influence your thoughts and your feelings. More on this in a later article.

Groovy people are very aware of their body actions. They check whether their facial expressions and body language are conveying the meaning that they intend by watching and listening to the feedback that they receive from their audience.

Today’s Exercise: at regular intervals, tune in to your behaviour. Watch what you’re doing. Notice your gestures. Notice your body language. Listen to what you are saying and the tone in which you say it. Being aware of your of your body language and speech is an important skill to have. It will help you to become whatever you wish to become. Groovy people pay close attention to their what they are doing and the way in which they are doing it so that they can always improve on their behaviour. Groovy people are sensible of their bodily actions.
