4 Things Everyone Should Know About Self-Improvement Image

National Self-Improvement Month
 
Sometimes BIG changes start with small shifts.  Here at National Staffing, we’re incredibly passionate about personal growth, and the pursuit of exposing our team to ample opportunities that expand their horizons.  In honor of National Self-Improvement Month, here are some simple changes that you can make today, to improve your health, productivity, and happiness.


 

Self-Improvement Walking Image

Shift #1 – Start Walking:

Instead of watching Netflix during your 15-minute break at work, start going for a walk around your building complex instead. You can do this alone, or invite a friend. Immediately, your mind will feel a lot less cluttered, and a lot more energized. After a couple of months, you’ll be surprised at how your body-shape changes, and your energy level increases, even with small amount of exercise.



Self-Improvement Goals Image

 Shift #2 – Set New Goals:

Setting new goals will make you better, and stronger. Often times, we settle into a comfort zone, and while this has its benefits, being too comfortable never helped anyone grow much. Set some time aside to ask yourself questions like: “What haven’t I done that I’ve always wanted to do? What would my ideal life look like 5 years from now? Would it be the same as it is right now? What kind of person would I want to be? Where will I have traveled?...” Self-reflection is incredibly important for self-growth. Answering questions like these makes setting new goals a much more expansive, and rewarding process.

Trick: Write a letter to your future self about what you’d like your life to look like, why you’re setting these goals, and how they’ll benefit your future. Post the letter in your home, or store it in a safe place, and read it whenever you need a little motivation.

 Shift #3 – Give Your Refrigerator a Makeover:

Before you start panicking, this is much easier than it sounds. First, grab a few clear containers to put all of your fruits and vegetables in. Next, place these colorful, healthy foods on the very top rows of your refrigerator, along with your yogurts, jellos, and salad fixings. Now whenever you open the door, those options will grab your attention. As a result of this new system, you’ll unconsciously start making healthier meal choices, and your body will thank you for it.



Self-Improvement Smile Image

 Shift #4 – Smile More:

Whether this to comes from watching comedies, spending time with family, friends, and co-workers, or looking at hilarious memes the Internet; be sure to take the time to smile each and every day. Ample studies showcase how smiling and laughing positively impact your mental, physical, and personal health by boosting your mood, strengthening your immune system, and lifting the mood of those around you. If you want to improve your life and the lives of those around you, smiling is one of the easiest, and most pleasurable, ways.
