Are you satisfied with your life?
I talk to so many fellow warriors who are not satisfied with their lives.
Not being satisfied is different than not being happy…
When you are not satisfied with your life it can be a roadblock that prevents you from feeling better, having less pain, less fatigue, and less brain fog.
Being unsatisfied gives you more of everything that you’d rather not have!
People that are unsatisfied in their lives have better blood pressure and heart rates.
People who are unsatisfied in their lives are grumpier and tend to have a weakened immune system allowing them to get more colds and other illnesses… like fibromyalgia.
People who are unsatisfied in their lives also tend to have more stress… a known trigger for fibromyalgia flares.
People who are unsatisfied in life tend to have more chronic widespread pain… the hallmark sign of fibromyalgia.
People who are unsatisfied in life tend to have more diseases and chronic illnesses… like fibromyalgia.
People who are unsatisfied in life tend to have shorter unfulfilled lives…
So, are you satisfied in life?
If you’re one of the many fibromyalgia sufferers who feel unsatisfied with their life… It's time to make a change.
It doesn’t matter if being unsatisfied or your fibromyalgia came first… either way, if you do not seek ways to improve your satisfaction in life you will have more problems causing more dissatisfaction in your life.
Top Three Ways To Feel More Satisfied In Life
Are you truly satisfied with your life? If not, you aren’t alone, as being satisfied with your life isn’t always an easy task for anyone. Below are the top three things you should do if you want to feel more satisfied with your life.
Exercise is great for you both physically and mentally. Exercise helps to keep you in your best shape while also releasing endorphins that make you feel happy. And if you do manage to exercise enough, you will be able to transform your body into the physically fit shape you’ve always wanted to be—which will also help you in the happiness department.
I know that exercise can increase your pain with fibro and increase your fatigue… but this is temporary (I’m not saying you need to run a marathon or work out 7 days a week).
Don't be afraid to start small. Just try to get your body moving in some small way each and every day!
2. Be Grateful
One of the best ways to feel more satisfied with your life is by practicing gratefulness for all the amazing things you have already. If you spend all your time wanting for the things you don't have or being jealous of others for the things they do have, this will make you unhappy with your life.
Learn to be grateful for your fibromyalgia and thankful for the opportunity to change your life.
To efficiently practice gratefulness, you should make a daily list. Take some time to brainstorm all the amazing skills, people, and things that you have in your life. Then when you find a moment that you are feeling down, look back at this list and remind yourself how good you have it.
3. Release Stress
You have probably already realized that stress is a major hindrance to feeling satisfied with your life. I know I preach on this often. This fact is why you should do everything in your power to lower the stress you feel daily.
Start each morning with some relaxing yoga or mindful meditation. Then make sure you are allowing yourself enough time for self-care each day. Ensure you regularly engage in practices that help you to release stress.
When you are faced with an especially stressful moment at work or your home, don’t underestimate the power of a deep breath, taking a break, or even reaching out to a friend for some help.
Feeling more satisfied in life is no easy task, and it will take you some time to accomplish it truly. If you exercise, practice gratefulness, and work to release stress every day, you may find that satisfaction with your life is right around the corner and well within your reach.
It’s also important to remember that you have the choice to find satisfaction. Nobody else can do it for you. You have the power.
