Being a better person doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re in need of change, it can mean that to improve the quality of life for yourself and the people around you, that you strive to be a better person.

For many people around the world, self-improvement can mean many things, and if you’re looking to become a better person this year and for many years to come, you should check out these challenges to try this year.

Become a healthier person

The media is finally seeing the importance of being fit and healthy and thankfully, so are many other people around the world too. More people than ever are now signing up to gyms, eating more mindfully, and setting themselves health goals to smash, and you should too!

Even if you’re not ‘overweight’ or ‘underweight’ per se, being healthy involves a lot more than what the scales are reading.

So, turn your health around this year! Did you know that the relationship we have with food, in general, is actually a very misguided one?

Check out these multiple faux pas that you might be making so that you can make changes if needed:

Becoming healthier isn’t just about the food we’re eating and the exercise we’re doing either, as many people poison their bodies with alcohol, drugs, and even cigarettes.

If you’re struggling to give up any of these, there’s no shame in asking for help. The sooner you do it, the better your health will be!

Help others turn their lives around

Doing something to help others is possibly the kindest thing you can do with your time, and it’s very empowering knowing that you’re making a difference in someone’s life too.

Why not help others turn their lives around by doing selfless things like:

Helping others goes a long way with everyone involved and is a perfect way of becoming a better person!

Do something selfish

This may sound very backhanded considering we’ve just been talking about selfless actions to take. However, the whole point of life is to live it to the full, and what’s the point if you can’t be a little selfish every now and then?

Treat yourself to that massage, go on that holiday and yes, it’s okay to say yes to that chocolate cake every now and then! You’ll find that by doing things for yourself every now and then that you’re a much happier and more accomplished person in general.

Forgive

There are many reasons as to why people fall out and it’s understandable that sometimes, it can be difficult to forgive someone for their actions. However, no matter how cliché this sounds, life is too short not to forgive!

In the blink of an eye, someone could be gone from your life forever and you could spend the rest of your life regretting not patching things up. It’s easier said than done, but try and learn to forgive mistakes and move on with a positive attitude!

Remember to take care of your mental health

We’ve spoken a lot about your physical health and how important it is to take care of it, but it’s also important to remember that your mental health should be a priority too! It’s easy to become consumed in work and the people around you, and without even realising it, your mental health could deteriorate!

Take time for yourself to repair and relax your mind each day and if you are struggling with mental health problems, speak to your GP as soon as possible.

Set yourself a challenge

Finally, what’s life without a little challenge every now and then?

Something to work towards that you can be proud of is a great way of becoming a better person. If you’ve always wanted to skydive, then set yourself the challenge to do that this year! Live life to the fullest and never regret a moment of it!
