How do you define your lifestyle? You probably think about things like fashion and profession. You think about where you live. You think about the things that you do. When it comes to lifestyle choices, it’s much better to be aware of the fact that there are conscious and subconscious things going on, and then try to hack into them, then it is just to let your life go on autopilot. That’s why you should develop a list of do’s and don’ts so that you gain a proper understanding of how your lifestyle fits into the context of the broader society in general.
Take a few examples to get yourself thinking. First of all, you should have a lifestyle that focuses on good exercise habits. It’s also imperative that you always decide that you don’t drink and drive. On the positive side of things, your lifestyle should include being surrounded by good people. And on the negative side again, lots of men are getting lost in social media, and that gives them a warped sense of reality.
Focus On Good Exercise Habits
When you focus on good exercise habits, that will automatically improve your lifestyle. Even if you don’t make more money or own more things, having a fit body can make all of the difference in the world regarding how you think about yourself and how you feel. You don’t have to go overboard and get obsessive about exercising, but daily and weekly routines go a long way into giving you a better standard of living.
Drink and Drive
A big lifestyle negative spiral that many men get caught in is that they feel like they can drink and drive. You go to a bar or restaurant to hang out with your friends and have a few beers or a few shots. If you feel like your ability to drive is impaired at all, or if you feel like you’re blood alcohol content is above the legal limit, you should not drive! If you do, then you risk inviting a bunch of unfortunate circumstances — you could hurt someone; cause vehicular or property damage; or worse, get convicted for a DUI or DWI. In case of the latter, it would be prudent to know of the monetary costs that might follow and therefore the legal expert you’ll need to seek out (for more on this, view here). Of course, you could always skip the unplesantaries, and just NOT drink and drive!
Surround Yourself With Good People
A big lifestyle decision is to surround yourself with good people. You will notice that for the interactions that you have with your friends and cohorts that some people give you energy and other people take it away. If you slowly but surely surround yourself with people who have positive energy, you’ll be amazed at how much better your life feels in general. It might be hard to cut negative people out, but the fact is, they are bringing you down.
Lose Yourself In Social Media
Social media brings a lot of good things to the table as far as technology and connection go, but it’s easy to lose yourself in the negative aspect of it as well. On the one hand, you see lots of people spreading negative news, which should be avoided. And on the other hand, if people are broadcasting unrealistic positive versions of themselves, that can make you feel bad about your own situation. Only use social media as much is you have to, and you will be better off for it.
