Why Quality Matters to a Life Well Lived
Posted by jlkropf on April 14th, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many of us are spending MUCH more time at home.
It's given us a rare look at a slower existence. And with this unique experience, we have the amazing opportunity to question the overall direction of our lives. Where are we headed?
For many of us, it can be a wake-up call.
Too often, we get caught up in the race of life. Work, kids' activities, and obligations eat up our time. Instead of savoring the day, we forget our goals and passions. As we sprint to an unknown finish line, we forget the things that light us up.
In short, we disregard the journey. Yet, there is exceptional joy in the process. If we only stop to look.
So, today, we're taking a short look at why quality matters to your life and how to get more of it.
Contemplate the End
First, consider the end of your life. Everyone wants to leave this world behind knowing that they did something meaningful in it. How empty would it be if you spent all of your time running a race to nowhere?
So consider these questions:
When you die, will you have left behind something that is positive and impactful?
Did you improve the lives of others in your life? Did you embrace your purpose?
If that answer is no, then it's impossible to have a marvelous quality of life. Some self-examination is required before moving forward.
Improve Your Daily Living
Second, implement small habits that help you enjoy even the mundane of life. Like many, I'm a bit of a workaholic. It can be excruciatingly difficult to slow down. So, focus on small, routine habits that bump your outlook on life and the way you embrace each day. Try one of these:
-Keep a gratitude journal
-Make a list of what makes you happy
-Get out in nature
-Do something daily that scares you
