When it comes to creating your future it’s important to remember that you need to invest in yourself too. It’s so easy to get caught up in the daily routines of life that we forget to take the time to invest in ourselves. In this post I am going to share with you the best ways to invest in yourself this year.
9 Best Ways to Invest in Yourself
Take the time to learn your passion
One of the best ways to invest in yourself is by taking the time to learn your passion. Figure out what your passion is and then work on that passion daily. The best thing I could have done for myself was figure out what brings me enjoyment and then turn that passion into income. I started my blog in 2017 because it was a passion of mine. It is now my full time job. Figure out your passion and go after it.
Listen to motivational podcasts
I think it’s important to listen to things that inspire you and fill your mind with positivity and motivation. Spending your free time wisely is important. You could spend it playing video games, or binge watching a reality tv show. OR you can listen to motivational podcasts that inspire you to take action in your life. Even if you are busy cleaning the house, multitask by listening to inspiring and motivational podcasts.
Take time to be alone and practice self-care
Another great way to invest in yourself is by taking the time to be alone and practicing self-care. I know on tough days that I love to practice self-care. It instantly boosts my mood. If you don’t take the time to focus on yourself and do things you love to do, you will lose that sense of motivation and feel good energy.
Invest in yourself by not settling
It’s so easy to find yourself in a situation where you are comfortable. You may not have your dream job but the job you do have is just enough to make it by. I have settled in the past and it has led to disappointment and “what ifs”. Why settle when you can go after more?
Read and write daily
I love taking the time to journal and read daily. I find journaling helps to relieve my anxious mind. If I don’t journal, I find myself staying wide awake all night tossing and turning with my thoughts. I put together a few lists of journaling prompts.
- Journaling prompts for goal setting
- Journaling prompts for self-love and confidence building
- Journaling prompts for personal growth
- Journaling prompts for self discovery
A huge way you can invest in yourself is by setting goals. It’s so easy to set a goal. You want to make sure you are also acting on that goal. If you set a goal and then never work towards it, it’s still just a dream. Set goals in every aspect of your life and work on them a little each day. If a task you’re working on isn’t helping you get closer to your goals, then that task is just keeping you busy, not productive.
Areas in your life to set goals:
- self (personal growth goals)
Invest in yourself financially
When it comes to investing in yourself, it’s important to invest in yourself financially. Work towards being financially stable. We all want to feel secure in ourselves financially. I put together a list of ways to feel rich in your twenties as well as tips for saving your first $1,000.
Take the time to learn who you are
It’s important to know who you are and what you want in life. Take the time to learn yourself. I put together a list of 50 questions to ask yourself to help you learn more about who you are and what you want.
Invest in your health
It’s so important to invest in your health. Whether it’s exercising daily, making sure you are filling your body with nourishing food, or filling your mind with positive thoughts. Take the time to invest in your health and see a doctor regularly. Making sure you are getting enough sleep is important too.
