A Complete Guide on How to Live a Great Life

Living a great life is hard. It requires a lot of care and attention. Not only do you have to take care of yourself, you need to take care of others, too. We live in a society, and because we live in a society we need to look out for each other. We need to understand and love one another. Living a great life is sharing our happiness and our success with one another. Living a great life means starting from the ground up – it means taking care of yourself and being prepared for the dangers. It means helping others. It means always trying to be a better person. Follow this guide to help you begin your journey to a wonderful and fulfilling life:

Prioritize Your Health

 Before you can help anyone and before you can take on the world you need to be healthy. Good health means having a strong immune system. It means having a body that feels good and has the energy to do everything that you need it to. It means living a long time. Eat a balanced meal, drink enough water, and make sure to exercise to feel good. You don’t have to look like a person in a magazine – you just need to love the way you feel in your own skin.

Mental health is the second part of yourself that you need to take care of. By ensuring that your body stays healthy is a great place to start maintaining your mental health. Illnesses, however, like depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses can be very difficult to overcome on your own. Don’t be afraid to ask for help to seek out treatment options when your own efforts are not working. You can’t be you when your mental health is not at its optimum.

How to Be Safe and Still Take on the World   

Being aware of danger and being able to respond promptly and correctly is not the same as never taking risks. The world is a big, beautiful place and there are many incredible sights, people, and experiences to enjoy. You shouldn’t lock yourself away in your home because you’re worried about any danger that could befall you. There are many dangers that could befall you in your home as well. Instead of fearing the dangers, be prepared for them.

  1. Be Aware of Potential Dangers

Recognizing and noting dangers is not the same as fearing them. Most of the dangers you will spot won’t harm you. A hot stove, for instance, is a danger. Open flames should not have flammable objects near them. A knife might be too close to the edge of the counter. A car might be driving too fast to comfortably stop at the pedestrian crossing. These are just a few examples of potential dangers that you can see and register before they become harmful. Act accordingly to either negate the danger or be prepared to act in the case of an accident. 

  1. Use Proper Safety Protocols and Precautions

It’s been said before, but with good reason: always follow the safety directions. These directions are there for your safety and have been advised after rigorous testing. When you are dealing with chemicals, for instance, it is always important to look at the warnings – whether the object is flammable or corrosive will depend on how you deal with it and what precautions you should take. Similarly, simple solutions like riding a helmet when riding a bike can save your life. You shouldn’t hide away from possible injury, but you should be prepared for it.

  1. Watch Out for Others

When you see someone about to walk into danger, help them. Stop them from walking out onto the street when there is a car speeding down the road. Catch something if you can and if it is going to fall on them. These simple things don’t just make you a good Samaritan, they can save someone’s life. 

  1. Don’t Take Senseless Risks

There are some things that are bad ideas. Jumping from a bridge to prove something is never a good idea. Injuring yourself for fame, or for attention, will only give you pain and the potential life-long disability. In the worst-case scenario, you could even die. Don’t take risks that do nothing but put you in harm’s way – your life is more valuable than that. 

  1. Be Prepared

You can’t avoid every danger, but the second-best thing to being proactive is to be prepared. Know the basics of first-aid response, like what to do for each kind of injury, and even how to perform CPR. Knowing what to do in the case of an emergency is how you will best be able to do what needs to be done. Panicking helps no one, and usually makes the situation worse. Being prepared means staying in control and responding promptly and correctly. 

  1. Seek Medical Help for Injuries

When you or someone else has been injured, you need to seek out professional help. There is only so much first aid can do, and even if you think you are fine after an accident, there could be many underlying, internal problems. For instance, if you have hurt your hand, you should always get it checked out. We rely on our hands so much for everything from day to day tasks to complicated actions. To ensure that you recover correctly, you will need to contact an orthopedic hand specialist. The same goes for any kind of injury – get it checked out and always follow up with a specialist when the injury is serious. 

Be Mindful with Others  

This next section deals with how to nurture and cultivate the relationships with those around you. Humans are very social beings. We need communication, love, and support to thrive. You need to be a good friend and loved one if you want to have a close-knit circle of people who truly love and care about you. Relationships take work. They require constant attention and a strong bond. Here is how to make sure the relationships in your life thrive: 

  1. Listen to Those Around You

No matter your relationship with the person, you should try to listen more. Listening, instead of talking, grows out understanding of the world. It lets us hear others – their needs, their wants, their desires, and their opinions. Even if you don’t like a person, listening to them will help you better understand where they are coming from. Once you know that, you can better communicate with them. Too many people talk instead of listen – be one of the few who does listen, and find that you can be a better, more empathetic person to all. 

  1. Remember Their Needs

We humans need to help each other out. When someone is struggling, offer your help. Share their struggles with them so that you can both be stronger and better for it. Remembering their needs is a great way to show that you care for them, and to help them.

  1. Be Thoughtful and Appropriate

Being thoughtful goes a long way. It can be something as small as giving your sick coworker some flu medicine while you are both at work, or it can be something as sentimental as a personal message on a card. As social constructs are complicated, you will want your thoughtful actions to be appropriate. Match the action with the relationship, and make sure that your thoughtful action will be appreciated. If said thoughtful action is not appreciated, it was not very well planned or thought out at all.

People appreciate it when you help them out. They appreciate it when you remember things that they have told you. When you put care and consideration into your relationship with them. 

  1. Be Honest

Lying rarely benefits any relationship. A good policy is to be remain as honest as you can be. If you don’t feel comfortable divulging certain information, inform the person that, and that they need to respect your wishes. Lying gets messy, it hurts others (especially when the truth comes out) and it can ruin relationships. 

Take Small Steps Towards your Goals

Your dreams are what drive you in life. They are what will keep you going. They are your purpose. To achieve these dreams, you need to turn them into goals. The smaller the goal, the more manageable it is to complete it. Knowing how to achieve your dreams is the only way to reach them. Set out small stepping stones that mean even the smallest action is another step forward, and one day you will fulfill your dream. 

Our lives are a series of moments. Sometimes these moments are terrible, and other times they are wonderful. The best we can do is try. Try to be a good person. Try to live healthy. Try to make it through life without a serious injury. Try to realize our dreams. Living a great life means doing your best and actively trying to be better.
