Self-Improvement Month: 6 Ways to Build a Better You

September is Self-Improvement Month, and although it has already passed by, we need to continue striving to improve ourselves every day of our lives for our own good. It doesn’t matter whether you are making big changes or taking baby steps on your self-improvement journey. Everything you do counts towards building a better you.

Here are six ways of pursuing self-improvement.

  1. Eat healthy food.

You need to take care of your body first before anything else. You can eat everything you want, but if your body is not keeping up with what your mind tells you, then achieving your goals would be impossible.

You only live once, so make the most out of it by not just living for today. You got to live for tomorrow as well. Evaluate your health and make healthy changes.

Eating more vegetables and fruits will help you avoid diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, and certain cancers. You can also start doing simple exercises such as walking after lunch break. Gym membership is good as well.

  1. Travel and go out of your comfort zone.

Take the time to relax and travel. It helps widen your scope. It can be a small trip or a big adventure. Traveling to other places helps you to acquire a bigger perspective of things and step out of your comfort zone. Through it, you will be able to learn more about your own capabilities.

  1. Pick or find a new hobby.

Do you have something that you always wanted to do? It would be a good way to start improving yourself since finding or doing something you haven’t tried before requires courage and pushes you to your limits.

Having a hobby will help you relax and make you happier. Whatever you may choose, make sure it is a good outlet where you can freely express yourself and test your creativity. You can also enjoy meeting tons of new people.

  1. Put the phone down.

Detox yourself from endless emails and texts. Put your phone down and engage in face-to-face conversations with the people around you. This will make you feel more comfortable about yourself and your relationship with others.

  1. Be a mentor.

Why not be a mentor and help someone reach their goals? Mentoring another person doesn’t mean that you are only helping them since you’d be reaping benefits as well! It helps you grow as a person by being a giver and not just a taker.

  1. Be yourself.

Pressures coming from peers and social media tend to make us feel inferior. Today, start to accept who you really are and be yourself no matter how much pressure you feel. You can always tell and convince yourself that whatever hardships, pain, and difficulties you have gone through, you can still achieve whatever your heart desires.


Help Improve the Lives of Others, Too

Self-Improvement Month is not only for ourselves but also for others. Unfortunately, some are stuck and can’t seem to improve due to difficult circumstances they face such as disabilities, lack of education, poverty, and unemployment.

If you want to give these disadvantaged people a hand and the chance to improve themselves, regain their dignity, and become self-reliant and productive members of society, then contact us at Goodwill Car Donations and turn over your old and unwanted vehicle to us.
