4 Lifestyle Improvements You Can Put in Place This Year

Written by Jimmy Rustling

You don’t have to wait until the new year or for any other special milestone to make a big change that will enhance your life now. Before the year is over, you can make any number of big or small changes that can lead to long-term satisfaction.

Pick Up a New Hobby

Have you always wanted to learn how to paint, kayak, or do woodworking? Maybe you want to learn a language, get into wine tasting or build computers. Whatever that thing is that you’ve always wanted to do there’s no time like the present to start it. Look for classes, clubs, online videos, meetup groups, organizations or ask a friend to join you in pursuing your new interest. This may turn out to be a great way to pass the time, a wonderful way to meet people or a life’s passion.

Install a Home Lift

If you or someone in your family is getting older and worried about going up and down stairs in your home, if someone has mobility issues or if you’re just tired of carrying items up and down the stairs dozens of times each day, consider a home lift. This might seem extravagant and you may even wonder whether one would fit in your house, but these real-life stories from home lift customers can convince you otherwise. For many, a home lift can make a real difference in your quality of life and can even make the difference in remaining in the house that you love and having to move to a place that’s on a single floor.

Volunteer Your Time

Volunteering can be beneficial for many different reasons. It feels good to help others. It gets you out of the house, and it gives you the chance to meet new people. It can also give you the opportunity to explore interests or use abilities that you don’t get to in your everyday life. The scope of volunteer opportunities is vast, so whether you love animals, people, nature, computers or just about anything else, there is probably an organization somewhere that would welcome your contribution. If you’re looking for a career change, this is also a great way to try out some different positions and get to know those who may be able to help you with the switch.

Prioritize Sleep

It might sound boring, but if you’re as sleep deprived as nearly everyone is, it’s anything but. Actually improving your sleep quality most nights can truly change your life, giving you more energy than you thought possible, helping you think more clearly and just making you feel better all around. New parents may have to postpone this one, but for nearly everyone else, it’s possible to arrange your lifestyle so that you’re getting adequate or at least more rest. You probably need to go to bed earlier than you currently do, and you should start winding down with relaxing activities at least a half hour before that. Shift workers will face an extra hurdle since your schedule is irregular, but by making sleep an important part of your life, even your job will be easier.
