1. Make Time For God
We all have the same amount of time each day, so we need to choose wisely how we spend our time. Also, we have the choice to decide what we do with the time we are given. Do we spend our time only working and focusing on the next promotion? Do we spend our time only playing and not being wise about finances? Or do we manage our time well and have a balance of work and play? Do something good with the time God has given you. Start the morning off well by thinking with a grateful and positive mind about the day. Thank God for the day and ask Him to help you use your time wisely. Choose to spend quality time with God to build your relationship with Him. You will greatly benefit from it and your relationship with Him will grow.
If we aren't growing, learning, and improving then we are just stuck in a stagnate stage of life. Enjoy all God has created for us and meet new people! If you can't afford to travel to another country, there are many affordable ways to travel within your own country. If you can afford to travel to another country and experience another culture, make the most of it and do so. See more of God's beautiful creation and learn from others. It is such a soul enhancing experience. You learn more about other cultures and are able to experience something different than you are used to. Get out of your comfort zone and explore! Just go and experience something new!
3. Volunteer/Help Others
When you volunteer or help someone in need, you are blessed and your spirit demonstrates Christ's servant characteristic. When you care for others and do something nice for others then you gain joy and love. We can all learn something from others and can be a benefit to someone's life just as others are a benefit to ours, either for the good or to teach us a valuable lesson. Help those less fortunate than you and be a humble servant as Christ was a humble servant.
4. Be Productive
When you are active and accomplish things, you gain a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. Don't you feel great and get a restful night's sleep when you have been busy doing good things and are able to mark items off your list if you keep one. Also, making something with your hands is very therapeutic and enriching. We are made to be outside and take care of nature, build, create. Therefore, start a garden, build something, or create something beautiful. There are numerous options to choose from, so find your interest and start a project. Don't sit around and just waste your life, be active, be adventurous, be productive and do good work.
As mentioned in the other points, we need to be constantly improving and growing. Therefore, reading Christian books that are written by godly men/women, we are able to learn and grow in knowledge and also see what areas we need to change. Self-reflection is necessary to do once in a while, it does not mean being self-absorbed, it means to think about ways you can improve and grow. We should be living vertical lives not horizontal lives.
Live life to the fullest by being present and living each day well! Focus on what you can do today to be productive, help others, and grow. Just as a seed needs sunlight, water, air, and good soil, to grow healthy, we need God, people, nature, a firm foundation, and exercise to continue to grow healthy spiritually, mentally, and physically. Therefore, turn off the TV, put the phone down, put away the game console, and spend more quality time with God, others, yourself, and nature.
