Making big choices to make you happier
Life really is made up of a series of choices which lead us in the direction we want to go.
In truth, we never truly know what is around the corner, but ensuring you're healthy and making the right and balanced choices is important to your happiness.
There will be times you need to make bigger, more important decisions that will have a lasting impact on your life.
Let's chat about some of these big milestone decisions...
Are you ready for marriage?
Marriage is a big decision for anyone to make, so it might be time to really consider your options and ensure that you are going into it with your eyes wide open. Marriage is a big commitment, and no one wants to enter it thinking that it will end in divorce. It can get extremely messy especially when there are assets and children involved.
So it's worth ensuring that you're taking the time to consider what your options are. Make sure you feel settled and happy with your partner.
Are you ready for kids?
Starting a family is also a very big decision to make, not just for your happiness but also your health. After all, it is a life-changing experience both mentally and physically.
So, are you ready? Some people know when the time is right to start a family, and they realise that these things can take time. Others might be caught at a time when it just isn’t the right thing to do, and may need to consider all of their options.
YOUR body = YOUR life = YOUR choice
You are entitled to make a decision that is best for you. Whether that includes looking into adoption, an abortion procedure in your area or keeping your baby. There is no right or wrong answer. Do what is best for you.
Is it time to change your career?
Are you feeling stagnant? Unmotivated? As if you're plateauing? It might be time to start thinking about your career and whether it's right for you.
We spend a big chunk of our days working, so it's important for your happiness that you do something you feel passionate about. You may also want to go for your dreams and start your own business! The better work and home life balance you have, the happier and healthier you will feel.
Are you physically healthy or can you do more?
Finally, let’s talk specifically about your health. Do you do all that you can to ensure that you live a healthy lifestyle? This means eating the right things and living actively. A healthy lifestyle is a choice and while you are entitled to have fun and indulge, it is also important that we take care of ourselves and do what we can to be healthy.
