DETROIT, February 7, 2014 — There are a lot of factors that go in to living a better life. Eating well and getting more exercise are obvious. Those habits should be easy to keep up. Everything is connected. Reducing stress, having more energy, a fulfilling sex life are all related.
Here are some best tips about living a better life.
Stress can not only cause health problems but it can cause relationships to suffer as well. Find time to relax. Set goals and mange your time. That said, sometimes stress is impossible to avoid. Then it comes down to how it is handled. Develop a system for dealing with stress and getting back to state of calm.
Stress can cause performance issues in the bedroom and being relaxed before engaging with your partner leads to greater enjoyment.
Expressing what you want and need in relationships (business or personal) is vital to getting where you want to be. Listening is equally vital to developing relationships.
Your partner cannot read your mind. Guessing what they want or surprising what you want leads to tension in a relationship. There is nothing wrong with asking what your partner wants and certainly nothing wrong with telling them what you want. The better you know someone and they know you the better your life will be.
Get out of your comfort zone
Go on a trip, jump out of a plane, walk up to someone at a bar. Do something you wouldn’t normally do. Doing the same thing all the time, no matter what it is, can and will get boring. Create fun and adventure simply by stepping outside of your comfort zone. It doesn’t have to be crazy, just different.
For some this easier than others. Communicate with your partner and find a common ground on what might be worth exploring. Again, the better you communicate the better it will be.
Live in the moment
Our daily lives have more screens, more distractions, more reasons to be distracted. It’s not hard to get lost in a email or even a game of Candy Crush. Making time to put down the screens, interact and enjoy the moment can and will lead to more happiness.
Leave distractions at the door and concentrate on your partner. Get lost in the moment.
Read, watch a great movie
Both for knowledge and relaxation watching a good movie or reading a great book is perfect. Learning more and being well read helps in communication and how someone sees the world. Watching a great movie is great for relaxation. As mentioned before, making time to relax is important in reducing stress.
Knowledge isn’t bad in the bedroom either. Learning and trying new things can make things exciting again.
