The Idea of Living A Care-Free Life
How does one become care-free? What must be done in their daily life to feel at peace and accepting of whatever comes their way? Allowing yourself to focus on the positives in your life and calm your worries will lead to days filled with less stress and more happiness. The guide to practicing a care-free life isn’t easy and doesn’t happen overnight, but with patience and perseverance— it can be done. Below are some practices and thoughts to consider when wanting to manifest a care-free life.
- Don’t just revolve your day and plans around school or work
Make time for the things you love to look forward to throughout your busy day. I have a countdown app on my phone where I put any exciting event or activity coming up. It gives me something to look forward to more often.
- Identify what’s stressing you out
If you take a moment to realize what is causing you stress, you can better combat it. If possible, figure out what you can do to ease this stress or get rid of it completely. If it’s something more out of your control, find ways that’ll best help you to conquer through it.
- Practice self-love and stop worrying about other people’s opinions of you
This is not easy - the journey to self-love is a long and patient one. However, it’s worth it. Allow yourself to be confident in who you are and forget about what other people may think. This will cause you to really live a life free from worries or cares. A post all about self love coming up soon btw.
- Do things because you want to do them
This can relate back to point 3, with self-love and confidence. Don’t just be a follower - create your own path. Do the things that you love and enjoy, not solely the things that your best friend or boyfriend loves and enjoys. It will be so incredibly gratifying and fulfilling to immerse yourself in your passions and hobbies on your own.
- Take things less seriously
Have fun!!! Let go of the feeling of needing to be serious all of the time. While there’s definitely the time and place to be serious (often out of respect), don’t let it turn you cold. Let yourself be happy over the simple things in life.
- Let go of the past
Never think of the past. It’s done and it’ll never happen again. Learn from them and move on. Thinking of the past constantly can really bring you down and change the current path you’re heading towards. As mentioned in #1, 1 make countdowns to exciting events, think about a brighter tomorrow.
The journey to true happiness is never easy but it can be incredibly rewarding when given the effort. Strive for a care-free life and get excited about the little things that bring you joy. I get it, we all go through a lot of ups and downs, but at the end of the day we shouldn’t be stuck on the negatives. If you have one little thing to be happy about— put your mind on that for the time being and focus on that happiness.
