We are living in a world where everyone is in a race to make it a smaller place, to make things easy, to save time. This gives us lots of free time but sadly majority of us waste this time on Netflix, weed, alcohol, pornography, and many other useless things. And therefore, most of us live a mediocre life wishing we had more time. If you want to beat mediocrity and live a life of your dreams, you need to start doing these 4 easy things that will transform you. 1. Read Reading means getting unlimited supply of knowledge that can transform any area of your life. Stuffs that you read in schools and in colleges are crap. The don’t teach us anything about the life areas like – health, relationships, finance, and spirituality. If you are the one to mock someone for reading any self-help book, or think these books are not cool enough, then my friend, you are missing intense powerhouse of knowledge. All the great self – help books are written by expert authors from their experiences and knowledge after doing an intense research in that subject and they want to share with you. Use it to your advantage. If you are not an avid reader, start slowly. Start with reading 10 pages. Reading does not only help you in getting knowledge but it also reduces your stress by 68%. 2. Meditate Meditation means silencing your mind. When we do not have anything to do, we worry about our past or about our future. In your free time, instead of worrying and useless overthinking, you need to control your mind. Meditation is easy and it is the best way to control your mind. Start with doing it for 5 minutes every morning. Just cross your legs, sit straight, and close your eyes. Start deep breathing and focus just on your breathing. Lot of thoughts will enter your mind, you just must acknowledge these thoughts and they will go away. Meditation will free your mind from compulsive thoughts of past and thoughts of future. It will be little tough at the beginning but it will get easier with practice. This way you will control your mind rather than letting your mind take control of you. 3. Exercise What is a better use of your free time than to use it to work on yourself, work on your body. Most of us are far too lazy to even think of exercising. The benefits of exercising are too many to ignore. From enhancing your mental clarity, to helping you sustain higher levels of energy throughout the day, exercising can improve your life in many ways. You can hit gym, go for a walk, or do yoga. Do whatever that suits you but make sure you exercise even if it is only for 10 to 20 minutes. 4. Keep a diary Write down your thoughts in your journal. You can write about your goals.
