Your life is the most important thing that you have. Every minute and every second is important. Wasting it away is definitely not a good idea, but there are some people who keep wasting their crucial time and that too unknowingly.
Let’s have a look at some of the signs you are wasting your life away.
1. Nothing seems fun anymore
Yes, we do accept the fact that life can be boring and predictable sometimes. It’s never fun when you are doing something repeatedly. It becomes monotonous and soon you lose your interest. It’s your job to make your life interesting and fun enough. Do not just survive; live, for the sake of your life.
2. You feel trapped or lost
This is something we all face at least once in our lives. It seems like there’s no door left open for us and whatever path we are choosing is not correct. Remember, you still have to move forward and you can’t get stuck in one place for the rest of your life. Maybe your time has not come yet, it doesn’t mean it is never going to come. Just keep hustling and everything will be fine.
3. You always feel tired
When your enthusiasm dies, it is normal to feel lazy and tired all the time. Sometimes it is not just the lack of sleep and that extra beer – it could also be the fact that you are not enjoying your life as much as you should. You are not doing stuff that makes you jump out of your bed. Do things that bring the electricity within you.
4. You always have the same new year resolution
We all fall into the trap of making an unrealistic new year’s resolution. You continue making it every year and hence it remains unfulfilled every year. Instead, promise yourself to do something more realistic. Things that are easy for you to do and which are achievable enough.
5. You are finding escapes
Finding escape is sometimes okay, but escaping from things you know will do no good in the long term could be dangerous. The very common way of finding escape is by indulging yourself in some kind of bad habit like drinking too much, drugs, etc. Let me tell you, you are simply wasting your life away and nothing else.
6. You have no friends
Friends are undoubtedly the best part of our life. Not having a good friend on whom you can rely is very painful. Sometimes you become friends not out of choice but out of circumstances like your office colleagues, classmates, etc. Change this thing and try making friends out of your circle too and see how interesting your life will become.
7. You waste your time in repeated activities
This is the biggest waste of time when you are spending your valuable minutes on doing something repeatedly – things like watching your favourite TV show hundreds of times only to have that nostalgic feeling, or stalking your ex, your crush, reordering the same food, etc. Make your life more interesting and take a moment to acknowledge the things that are new in your life.
8. You aren’t able to focus
When your mind is tired of the constant useless thoughts that have been coming the entire time, it’s normal for your brain to lose focus. The inability to let your mind focus on a thing for some time is costing you way too much than you can ever imagine. Stop using your phone the second you start feeling distracted. It is just going to make you even more distracted and nothing else. Practising meditation can also help you to enhance your ability to focus.
9. Your life is a mess
Your life is a reflection of you. If your life is messy then it’s because you are messy. If your life has no direction, the most probable reason is that you don’t know what to do with your life. The good thing is that you can always change your life. It is in your hands and you can turn it the way you want to.
10. You are willing to trade your life
The first and the best thing you could do for yourself is to build a life that you don’t wanna trade with anyone. The moment you realize that you don’t want to trade your life with anyone else is the moment that will bring you happiness and inner peace. It will take you years to build a life like that for yourself, but in the end, it will all be worth it.
