6 Reasons why you should do things for yourself

Reasons why you should do things for yourself and how to do more things for yourself

If you're always doing things other people want you to do then are you really happy living by someone else's rules? You only get one life, don't waste it on living a miserable life that you're not happy living. Start taking chances and doing more things for yourself; things that you really want to do. Don't live your life on someone's terms. It's your life. Not someone else's. Other people have their own lives to get on with. Here are six reasons why you should do things for yourself.

1. Happiness 

The biggest reason to do something you want to do is because you’ll gain happiness from it. If you’re always doing things for others, then what are you getting out of it? Yes. Making others happy may make you happy too but... you need to and should do things you want to. If you’re only ever pleasing others, then when will you make time for yourself? You have to take care of yourself and take your happiness into consideration. 

2. Confidence

When you start doing things for yourself, you’ll become happier, and in turn, you’ll also gain more confidence. You will gain more confidence in yourself and your choices. You’ll have confidence in making decisions for yourself. You'll build the confidence through all of the adventures you decide to take.

3. Peace

When you do things for yourself, you’ll gain inner peace. If you're living life on someone else's terms then that's most likely to make you miserable. It’s really important to look after yourself and your wishes! Don’t neglect yourself. You'll feel much better once you start making the decisions that you feel comfortable with. 

4. Self-worth

When you start doing things for yourself, there’s no doubt that your own sense of self-worth will increase. There's no doubt that you'll have low self-worth if you're doing everything someone asks of you and has a set of rules for you to follow. Once, you start making your own decisions and taking control of your own life, then you'll feel great! You'll start to recognise what you're worth and how much you're capable of.

5. “Feel Good” 

There's no doubt about it- when you start living life for yourself and start doing things for yourself then you’ll “feel good”. You’ll feel good about yourself, your life, and your decisions. What’s better than feeling good?

6. Growth

When you start doing things for yourself, you’ll automatically grow from that experience. You grow from each experience and learn new things. The main reason to do something for yourself is that you’re most likely going to learn something from that experience and be able to grow from it. Even if an experience wasn't as you had anticipated, you'll still learn and grow from the experience. Each time you do something for the first time, you will complete the activity with more experience and knowledge than you started with. 

So, what are some things you want to do for yourself but you haven't had the chance to do yet?

Thanks for reading!
Until next time, take care, and keep smiling.
