6 Ways To Become A Better Person

*Collaborative post.

Let’s face it: we’ve all made mistakes in our lives. There isn’t a single person on the planet that can claim to be perfect. Still, one thing we can do is learn from our mistakes and hopefully avoid repeating them in the future. At some point in our lives, we’ll sit back and reflect on what we’ve done, and ponder the things we are yet to accomplish in life.

The thing about achieving goals in life is that we can only do so if we are true to ourselves, and we carry out our actions to the best of our abilities. Sometimes, though, we might need to re-evaluate what we do. You might not realize it, but there are some things you could change in your life to help you be a better person. By making a few small changes in your life, you’ll find empowered to achieve almost anything! Here’s what you can do:

Be content with what you’ve got

While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve things in your life, some folks get carried away and aren’t happy with what they’ve got. They always want more, and when they get more, it’s still not good enough for them.

You should be more content with what you’ve got in life because there are many individuals that don’t have even a fraction of what you enjoy daily. Life isn’t about keeping up with your neighbors, being the trendiest person in town, or earning millions of dollars. Many of us are guilty of being very materialistic. We sometimes forget about the things we’ve got that we should be thankful for in life. It’s important to be thankful for what we’ve got and to not feel dissatisfied with all that we’ve achieved.

 

Do things that make you happy

The last thing you want to do is be a person that is always unhappy with their life. You may not know it, but many unhappy souls out there feel the way they do for one reason in particular. They only devote their time to making other people happy, and rarely do anything that makes themselves feel the same way!

It’s important to have a balanced work and personal life. But, it’s even more crucial to devote some time to yourself regularly and do the things that make you feel happy in life. We all have hobbies and pastimes that interest us in our spare time. Make sure you aren’t forgetting about yours, or rather devoting time to them each day or week.

 

Keep your health and appearance in check

Following on from the previous section about happiness, the only way you’ll have a chance to do so is if you’re feeling in good spirits. If you’re always feeling fatigued, ill, or have a lack of interest in doing anything, it’s time to get a medical check-up.

On a separate note, you’ll also feel good about yourself and more inclined to do things if you’ve got a lot of confidence. The thing is something that can often cause low self-esteem is when we aren’t taking pride in our appearance. So, if you want to give yourself a new you with a dental makeover or a change of hairstyle, go for it. You won’t just feel better about yourself, you’re also making yourself a better person!

 

Set aside time to cultivate your religious connections

It’s likely you are here on this website because you are religious and find strength in God. Of course, life has a habit of getting in the way of maintaining our spiritual and religious connections. With that in mind, another way you can become a better person is by cultivating your religious links with God.

There are many ways where you can strengthen your bond with God. For example, you can spend more time praying, reading Bible verses, and reflecting on how you can be a more kinder, caring person.

Also, one of the most common themes across all religious, irrespective of whether you are Christian or not, is love. It’s important to love both your friends and enemies alike. Hate is a negative theme and never brings the best out in people. As such, if you spend part of your life hating others, you can’t easily let the love inside of you shine through.

 

Listen to what others have to say

Something that many of us are guilty of is spending most of our time talking and very little of it listening to others! It’s no secret that the way we learn about anything in life is from listening to what other people have to say.

When we wish to learn a new skill or more about a particular topic, we listen to a teacher or someone knowledgeable on the subject. And when we wish to understand and empathize other people, we listen to what’s troubling them.

Giving other people a voice in life is one of the best things you can do as a person. It’s also one of the foundations of being a good person. If you’re guilty of talking too much, give your voice box a rest and let someone else do the talking! You’ll discover and learn all kinds of interesting facts and stories, both about people you know and the world around you.

 

Help those less fortunate than yourself

Many people in the world end up in desperate situations for various reasons. It’s easy for us as humans to judge one another. But, it’s sometimes challenging to recognize when we should help those less fortunate than ourselves.

There are many ways that you can help other people in your daily life. For example, the simple act of giving up your seat on the bus for a frail and elderly person. Or you could volunteer in a local community center to help those in need by offering practical help. The more that you help other people, the better a person you will feel and become.

Product Review – Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment

*Affiliate link.

I used this Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment for Itchy and Irritated Skin on the kiddies when they had chickenpox in the summer. The chickenpox was severe for my daughter and it was a horrible experience. I remember browsing the web endlessly, looking for a product that would help relieve the discomfort. In my search, I found this Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment.

For those who have never heard of this product, here is a brief product description from the brand –

Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment relieves dry, itchy, and irritated skin with 100 percent natural colloidal oatmeal. This dermatologist- recommended treatment helps temporarily protect and relieve itch and irritation due to poison ivy/oak/sumac, rashes, insect bites, and eczema. Professionally recommended to temporarily help relieve itchy, irritated, dry skin. When dispersed in water, this fragrance-free colloidal oatmeal powder forms a soothing milky bath that works as a natural cleanser, provides temporary skin protection, and relieves irritation and itching.

We used this Aveeno Bath Treatment a few times. I decided to stop using it because I didn’t want to mess around anymore with the chickenpox spots. Here are the pros and cons I found when I did use the product.

PROS
  1. I like the fact that the products comes in 8 individual sachets. The packaging made it easier to use and store.
  2. This product is fragrance free.
  3. It did provide some relief. My daughter’s chickenpox was a lot more severe than my son’s, and she found this oatmeal treatment really soothing.
  4. It is quite affordable at £11.23 on Amazon.

CONS
  1. The product didn’t dissolve in water quickly. I had to use my hands to break the large blops in the bath.
  2. It does leave a messy bath tub as should be expected. A bit of cleaning is required once the bath water is drained.

 

Overall, I like the product but I cannot see myself buying it again. It works but there are more effective products to use, and these products are easier to use as well, which is why I won’t be buying this again. However, if you are struggling with skin issues like eczema, chickenpox, hives, prickly heat and others, you may want to try this Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment. You can shop this product via the Amazon link below.

Travelling is an adventure. There is no doubt about it that no matter where you choose to go or how you choose to do it, travelling is going to change your life.

  • Don’t Forget Your Chargers – Or Adapters

Wherever you end up in the world, you need to be able to charge your devices. This means bringing the wires, and bringing adapters so that your chargers work in those countries! You need to make a list of the devices that require charging, and then make sure that you tick them off.

 

  • Copy Your Travel Documents

It’s so important that you have everything when it comes to your travel documents, from an updated passport to your visas from E Visum Services. Without these essentials, you can be refused flight, and this is why it’s vital to have copies. If you did somehow manage to lose your paper copies, you can still get onto the flight! Hard copies and digital copies are a must if you want to be taken seriously by the airlines.

 

  • Know Where To Get Money Help

You’re on a holiday in a completely different country halfway around the world. Your bank card suddenly stops working and won’t let you draw any money out or pay by card for any goods and services. You are stuck. However, if you are smart and make a note of your banks’ customer service and helpline numbers, you’re going to be able to get some help. The same is true if you lose your bank card!

 

  • Get Insured

It’s an added expense, it’s not nice to pay out for, but without travel insurance you could lose a lot of money in adverse weather that cancels your flight. Or if you lose your luggage! You don’t want to fall ill on your trip and then end up with nothing. You need to get a good travel insurance policy so that you have backup in times of trouble.

 

  • Check Your Health

You may need to get vaccinations for the place you are travelling to, so get an appointment with your GP so you know whether or not it’s a necessity for you. You can also use the time to get a printout of any prescriptions that you have to bring with you.
