Hoping for a life upgrade this year? There are many ways to make it happen. If you want to improve your life in 2019, here are some top ways to make it better:

Set big goals

Often, life becomes about going to work, coming home, eating dinner, and watching TV. Weekends disappear in the blink of an eye, since they’re full of errands, resting from a big week of work, and trying to catch up with friends.

If you want to improve your life, the best way to do this is to set big goals and work on achieving them. Maybe you want to learn a language, perhaps you’d like to learn to cook, or maybe you’ve always wanted to own your own home. Whatever it is, make a list of your goals, and the steps you plan to take to achieve them.


Start a business

Have you long had a great idea for a business, and you’ve just been waiting to make it happen? Maybe 2019 should be the year that you stop waiting. If you’ve got a great idea, you owe it to yourself and your potential customers to hit the ground running. Whether you’d like to start freelancing, or you want to sell physical products, set up an online business, or anything else, make a list of what you’ll need to get started. This could include mascot costumes, a website, a business loan, and more.

Focus on health

Are you currently your best self when it comes to your health and fitness? If not, you’ll likely benefit from making 2019 the year you focus on your health. One way to do this is to take a few hours on a Sunday, shop for some healthy food, and prep your meals for the week. This makes it easier since you’ll be able to reach for a healthy, prepared meal after a long day, and won’t be tempted to get food delivered when you’re too tired to cook.

If you’re someone who has to sit down for long periods of time at work, consider investing in a standing desk. Take plenty of breaks so you can walk around the office, and consider walking or biking to work if you live close enough. If you have a friend who is also planning to focus on health, consider signing up for a gym membership, some fitness classes, or even a 5 or 10K so you can train together.
