4. We don’t pay attention to things happening around us.
It’s really important to not just to pay attention to what we do but also how we do it. For example, let’s imagine 2 girls. One of them is angry because she has to clean her house: she’d rather be on a date in a fancy restaurant, but no one invited her. Another girl is just washing the dishes and she’s glad she has some time to herself to clean the house.
In the first case, the girl will feel exhausted and in the second case, the girl will feel more relaxed. Our ability to live in the here and now and never let our fears, regrets, and memories disturb us makes our lives more interesting.
3. We only consume.
To make our life meaningful, we have to not only take but also give. Acts of kindness make us satisfied and feel significant.
Here’s some good news: even the tiniest good actions can cheer us up. Buying someone a present, writing a note, or even painting a wall are all things that lead us to believe that we have a purpose in this life and that someone needs us.
