It happens to the best of us – life can start to drag on. Many of us have so many responsibilities in life that we don’t even notice when it happensWe’re living through strange times and when our day-to-day routine starts feeling like a never-ending chore, it can be all too easy to forget that our lives require our active participation to stay fresh and exciting. So, when you’re feeling disheartened, here are four simple methods for falling in love with your life all over again.  

Falling in love with your life means learning what you love, what you desire, what you need and putting all those things into action. It means focusing on your own goals and achieving them. Romanticizing your life allows you to embrace changes, learn new things and helps you grow into yourself. 

When stuck at home with nowhere to go and your usual routine now redundant, the days can easily blend together and get boring. Instead of trying to control every aspect of your life, change it up a little. Maybe give your life the chance to surprise you from time to time. Say yes to something you usually say no to. Sometimes the things we’re most unsure of end up being the best things for us. You’ll just never know unless you give it a shot. 

Falling in love with your life means putting yourself first. So, put aside an hour or two a week to chart out some personal goals. It’s easy to become your own life coach and work on self-improvement when you put your mind to itTeach yourself to engage in positive thinking and push yourself forward. Truthfully, there is no one size fits all approach to self-improvement, so you may need to engage in a bit of trial and error to find what works best for you. You should actively pursue a life that supports your dreams, goals and purpose.  

Just because physical social interaction has been put on hold, it doesn’t mean that all your social connections should! It’s hard to find reasons to love your life when you are disconnected from your friends. Everyone still needs a good chat with those we love to feel complete. Whether or not you are all by yourself, be sure to check in with loved ones on a daily basis 

Most importantly, make sure to incorporate plenty of simple pleasures into your daily routine. Falling in love with your life is all about enjoying yourself after all. Your options might be more limited than usual right now when it comes to the ways you usually have funbut all it takes is a bit of re-organization and some creativity to reimagine how you can still enjoy your days. From a hot bath, a daily coffee, taking the time to read or catch up on your favorite shows or spending a few minutes outside, punctuating your days with little lifts like these will keep your positivity going and remind you in the midst of all this madness that there’s so much joy in the world and so much to still enjoy.
