Tips To Become The Best Version Of You

There are many reasons you might not be feeling like the best possible version of yourself. You could be going through a stressful period in your life and haven’t been getting enough sleep. Perhaps you have been away on holiday and eaten and drank a lot, or maybe you’ve been feeling anxious and let your self-care slide. No matter what the reason is, if you think you could be doing better, it’s never a better time to start than now. Here we’ve put together some top tips to help you feel the best version of yourself.

Why is it important to be your best possible self?

There are many reasons it's important to be your best self. When you are doing so, you will perform better in all your daily tasks such as your job performance, socializing with friends, and looking better. You will sleep more, feel less anxious or depressed and be more interested in hobbies and other activities. When you’re feeling happy, the people around you are also likely to pick up on this and feel happier themselves too.

SO how can you be the best version of yourself?

Ensure you have enough sleep each night

The amount of sleep we get each night is imperative for being healthy and happy. Our bodies need that time to repair and refresh, enabling us to wake the next day feeling rejuvenated and much better. Try to aim for between seven to nine hours each night. Any more and you could end up feeling tired from having too much sleep and any less and you’re likely to not have had enough. It’s important to establish a good bedtime routine in order to have enough sleep. Do things just as not going on your phone for at least an hour before bed and ensuring your room is sufficiently dark and at the right temperature.

Watch what you eat

If you’re feeling low you might want to turn to comfort eating as a way to get you through. While things such as chocolate can give you a short-term rush by releasing endorphins, they won’t help your body in the long term. Instead, try to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables and drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Don’t deny yourself treats but try to make sure you’re not indulging in these too often!

Limit your alcohol intake

While alcohol can be fun at things like parties or if you’re wanting to wind down at the end of a busy week, it is very bad for you. Alcohol can lead to anxiety, depression, weight gain and so much more, negatively impacting your life. If you find that you rely on alcohol to get you through the day or drinking it is more of a habit than for fun, it could be an idea to look into a rehab facility to help get you through. 

Get plenty of exercise

If the idea of working out is one that makes you want to run in the opposite direction as fast as you can, then don’t worry. To most people, the idea of the gym or going for a job is the worst thing they could possibly imagine. To avoid this, try and find an exercise that’s right for you and that you enjoy doing. When you work out you look better and feel better, meaning it’s great for both your physical and mental health. You could try heading to a class such as a body pump, yoga, or circuit class. Or why not try playing a sport such as tennis or squash? These are all forms of exercise that you could bring a friend to and have some fun with, while also getting fit at the same time.

Try activities that enrich your life

If you find that you don’t really do anything with your life it can get you down. If all you do each day is wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner and go to bed, you can feel depressed pretty easily. Instead, find time to fit in things that you enjoy such as seeing friends, creating artwork or going for scenic walks. No matter what it is, if it makes you smile, make some time for it. Remember that we work to live and don’t live to work, so don’t let it consume all of your life.

Push yourself out of your comfort zone

While it might be scary thinking of pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, it’s a very important thing to do for personal growth. Find new things that you’ve never done before to try, such as pottery or taking on a project that you’ve always wanted to do but have been scared to do. By doing this you will soon feel proud of yourself and see just what you can do when you put your mind to it.

Don’t be afraid to take time out

In life, it can be hard to take time out, but it’s important to do so. Whether it’s taking an hour in the morning to head to a coffee shop and enjoy your favorite drink and a book, or booking some time off work to just do nothing. If you’re busy all the time it can get overwhelming which is why it’s so important to allow yourself some time to just be. Where you can relax, recover, and feel refreshed. This will avoid burnout and enable you to be the best version of yourself in no time.

These are just a few top tips that should help you become the best version of yourself. By improving just a couple of areas of your life, you will soon find that others improve too. When you can feel and be proud of yourself, you will be much happier and find more joy in life again. Have you recently tried to improve yourself as a person? What top tips would you give?
