10 Ways to be a Better Human

10 Ways to be a Better Human

Whether you are seven or seventy, it is never too late to better yourself as a human. A few ways to do so is:

1. Don’t Make Excuses
It is very easy to point fingers when things start to go south. Being able to take the blame for when something you have done backfires encourages you to learn from the things you have done wrong. Whether you are in a workplace or a relationship, being vulnerable and putting yourself out there to learn from your mistakes will make you a better person.

2. Be Helpful
Whenever you are at an advantage you should consider offering your help. You never know what other people are going through and what position they are at in their life, and your help could possibly make their day.

3. Open Yourself up to Change
Change is inevitable. When you open your mind and accept it, it will cause less stress and make you an overall happier person.

4. Educate Yourself
Knowledge is power. When you are intelligent you are able to open yourself up to new conversations, relationships, viewpoints and so much more.

5. Be Accepting
Nobody likes to be told they are wrong. However, sometimes it can be a good thing to recognize that your beliefs or values are not the only ones that exist. Opening your mind to controversial things will make you more secure in your own decisions along with respecting others.

6. Be Creative
Being creative and making art allows a person to make mistakes and grow from them. It focuses the mind on a topic which can help relieve stress and help build a more positive attitude.

7. Show Compassion
Showing compassion reflects your ability to care for others. Not everyone can always be in a positive mood and when you are sincere and compassionate it often allows for people to be more receptive to help.

8. Commit Yourself
Commitment shows determination and a person’s willingness to complete a task. Deciding what is most important to spend your time on and devoting yourself to that task will empower you when you finally are able to cross it off of your (or someone else’s) to-do list.

9. Set Goals for Yourself
It is very important to set goals for yourself. All goals are helpful, whether they are small goals like making your bed or even bigger goals, like graduating college. Goal setting is a very crucial part of someone’s day-to-day routine because they allow for you to check off and congratulate yourself on the small things you have been able to accomplish throughout the day.

10. Compliment Often
Compliments can make someone’s day. Whether you are complimenting yourself, or someone else, it is very important to lift spirits. Everyone is dealing with their own anxieties and stresses, a simple compliment could shift a person’s mood from sour to amazing.
