We are in the second quarter of the year 2019 and today is the 13th of May. When we begin this year, we had a lot of goals that we set out to accomplish, but as time goes on, we move on with our lives like we never had plans. It is not too late to pick up from where you left off in January. It is Monday and Mondays are for serious business. So, in this article, we are going to give you five ways you can invest in yourself this year.
Learning And Development
Make up your mind to invest heavily in your personal development this year. Take courses online, read a lot of books, talk to people who inspire you, follow people who do something closely related to what you do or even what you do on social media. You can also listen to an educative podcast; make sure you learn and grow.
Health is wealth might sound cliché, but it is a fact. Try to take care of yourself this year. Exercise as much as you can. You don’t have to go to the gym; there are a lot of apps that can help you stay fit and healthy if you are committed. Drink a lot of water, eat less of junk food, go to bed early and wake up early. No matter how much you have, if you are not healthy, you won’t be able to perform your day to day activity effectively. Try to stay healthy and fit this year.
A lot of people think that traveling is a waste of time. They feel those who take out time to travel have a lot of cash at their disposal, but this is not the case. Travelling opens your mind to a lot of things and cultures. You get to learn and unlearn a lot of things. If you are from a developing country, traveling makes you see things from another angle. You get to understand that there is another side to life; there is an environment where the leaders get things done.
Give Yourself A Treat
Whether is it a cup of ice-cream with all your favorite flavors or a trip to the cinema or even a spa date, you owe it to yourself to give yourself a treat this year. You probably have no idea what it means to spend your money on yourself. This remaining part of the year, try to give yourself a lovely time, you would love it.
If you love swimming, playing basketball, singing, playing volleyball or whatever your hobby is, try to make out time for it this year. It is not excellent that you forget to take care of yourself because you want to save some money. Saving money is good, but being happy is more important.
It is not too late to start doing something amazing with your life; it is not too late to start investing in yourself. Make a plan and stick to it today.
