We all want to be the best versions of ourselves. But are there really concrete ways we can do this? Yes, we’ve outlined ten (10) ways you can become a better person.
How to Become a Better Person
Self-care is not passive, nor is it selfish.
That’s why you need to actively start taking care of your own needs— physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We know it’s not easy because sometimes our busy lives get in the way.
Lend a helping hand
Is there somebody in your life that needs help? Help that person. It doesn’t have to be grand but being kind to others makes you feel connected.
Also, it gives you a sense of purpose. You can do something to makes someone’s life better.
Research has shown that supporting others leads to good health and happiness. This is as long as we don’t get overwhelmed trying to help. Put your own oxygen mask on first.
I’ve always been fascinated by how kids are always curious about things. And that ever-curious attitude leads them to learn more new stuff.
As you learn, you improve not only the way you work, but your behavior and relationships as well.
It’s also a good idea to teach and share the things you’ve learned. Teaching someone not only reinforces the concepts but positively impacts the other person too.
Like the Dalai Lama said, “Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.”
Hypnosis can be key to breaking negative habits and adopting better ones.
If you feel stuck, maybe you just need a clinical hypnotherapist to help.
Acupuncture can help in becoming more grounded, centered, energized, and calm. By being more calm and centered, we help those around us to feel the same way.
Develop a Meditation Practice
Meditation is a powerful way to become attuned to yourself in a stressful world and become a better person.
Also, mindfulness stress reduction and meditation can keep the T lymphocyte count up and boost immunity. These immune response cells help our bodies fight infection and cancer.
In a long-term study published in the American Heart Association (AHA) journal, they found that African-Americans practicing meditation cut their risk of having a hard attack by a whopping 48 percent!
Using healing crystals can transmute negative energy and emphasize positive traits to become a better person.
Did you know that certain crystals can also be chosen based on your Zodiac sign? For example, for a Scorpio, aquamarine or amethyst might be good choices. Do you know the crystals that are the best match for your Zodiac sign?
As they say, cultivate an attitude of gratitude.
By forgiving someone who has done you wrong, you’re letting go of your anger and allowing that wound to heal.
It’s hard I know.
But the more you hang on to that pain, the heavier it feels. And that pain can spill over to other areas of your life.
So, take courage and take your time… then forgive.
Get a Life Coach
Can a coach really teach you how to become a better person? Yes, and they can guide you through the process.
Life coaches can help you define your goals and come up with ways to achieve them. They can show you things you can do to increase your self-confidence. Aside from this, they can assist in straightening out kinks in your relationships.
In fact, research has shown that one on one coaching is effective in reducing procrastination and goal attainment.
But you might think, “Oh I’m just going to talk about stuff, and then that’s it.”
Well, we offer integrative life coaching services. Compared to conventional talk therapy, in this approach, your integrative life coach helps you identify core issues and creates action plans to empower you in fulfilling your goals to live your best life and become a better person.
Best of all, integrative life coaching supports your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
Go out of your comfort zone.
It may be cliche, but doing something new allows you to experience growth. You don’t have to take big risks, but trying things you’ve never done before helps you better deal with change.
For instance, if you’ve never baked, you can try something simple like cookies. Who knows, you might enjoy it!
It’s like with kids tasting new food. How would they know that they don’t like it if they haven’t tried it yet?
So, taste life in all its flavors.
Push yourself towards the unknown little by little every day.
You just might surprise yourself.
Becoming a better person takes time and effort. The key is staying consistent in your path. Sooner or later, you’d notice changes in yourself and your life.
