5 Self Improvement Tips to Help Build a Better You

Many of us have self-improvement goals, whether you set them as a new year’s resolution, or are just looking to improve your life. However, it can be hard to know where to start, and some bad habits can be hard to break.

If you’re looking to start taking better care of yourself, and improve your mind and body, then here are just five fantastic tips to help you to build a better you and reach your self-improvement goals this summer.

1)    Take Control of Your Time

If you find that you’re struggling with stress and often feel overwhelmed throughout the day, then your problem could be your time management.

Time management is a skill, and one that doesn’t come easy to all of us, however, there are things that you can do to improve your time management skills.

Consider utilising an app such as Todoist to start tracking your tasks on the go. And, when you have a better visualisation of the hours in your day, you’ll be able to find time for some much-needed self-care.

2)    Get More Sleep

Sleep is one of the most important things we can do to aid our self-improvement; not only can it improve our mental wellbeing, but it can help with our physical wellbeing too.

Of course, getting more sleep can be easier said than done. However, there are things you can do to help improve your bedtime routine.

Something as simple as cutting out caffeine after lunch or even reducing your screen time before bed can help to improve your quality of sleep.

3)    Advance Your Education

If you’re looking to grow your career, then returning to education and building up your qualifications could be just the step you need to take.

We understand that not all of us can uproot our lives to return to the traditional campus environment. However, with a distance learning provider such as Anglia Ruskin University, you can study on a schedule that suits your needs.

By choosing an online learning course, you can fit your study around your existing career, or your responsibilities as a parent.

4)    Eat a Balanced Diet

One of the most common avenues people journey down when seeking self-improvement is changing their diets.

However, strict diets aren’t only difficult to maintain, but they can be boring too. Instead, focus on ensuring that you have a balanced diet, you don’t need to completely cut out the unhealthy foods that you love, just consider reducing them.

And, with meal subscription boxes such as Hello Fresh, you can have the ingredients you need to make tasty and balanced meals delivered to your door.

5)    Practise Positive Thinking

Positive thinking can make all the difference to the way you see yourself and the world around you.

Sometimes it can be hard to look on the bright side, so every evening, get into the habit of writing down a few things that went well during the day.

You can then look back on your successes whenever you need a pick-me-up.
