Time is the one thing that cannot be changed. It will always come, it will always harm you and it will always take away from what you have to give. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t change when it comes to how you handle it. Time is nothing but a river; whatever path you choose, it will follow. Therefore, how you choose to deal with your time really shapes who you are as a person. Do you see the irony here? You can either go around being controlled by time or do whatever makes you happy and enjoy every moment of your life. In this blog post, I would like to share with you 5 ways on how to successfully enjoy time and not let it steal your happiness:

Don’t overthink your decisions:

One of the most common problems that people face when it comes to enjoying life is overthinking their decisions. You don’t have to decide what to do next, when to do it or how to do it. All you have to do is follow your joy and find what brings you joy. There is no need to analyze or think about every single decision that you make. If you have a choice between doing this and that, just go with your joy and choose what brings you joy. In fact, this is the first way on how to successfully enjoy life.

Set goals:

When it comes to enjoying life, there is no such thing as too much. You can have everything in the world that you want and still be happy if you set goals for yourself. Whether it be having more money, having a better relationship, having the body of your dreams or having more time for your family, set goals for yourself and then work towards achieving them. Setting goals is a great way to get yourself motivated and focused on what you want to achieve instead of what you don’t want to do.

Network, Network, Network:

You can’t connect with the world and expand your horizons if you don’t have anyone to talk to. Whether it be friends, relatives, or people in your industry, connecting with people from different walks of life can enrich your life and give you valuable insight into different cultures, life experiences and ideas. Whether you choose to meet people in the comfort of your own home or a coffee shop or restaurant, there is value in meeting people where you are the most relaxed and at ease. You can learn a lot from others and get a lot out of just listening. Whatever setting you choose to talk to people in, always remember to be genuine and share your thoughts. People appreciate this, especially if they are interested in what you have to say.

Be yourself:

Everyone has their own unique and particular way of being themselves and showing their personality. Everyone has their own taste in music, food, friends and more. However, you should never mix these things together with your looks. You should never try to look or act like someone you see on the show “Shark Tank” or in a fashion magazine because that is not you and you should stay true to yourself. When it comes to your appearance, don’t be afraid to wear what you love and forget about the rest.

Exercise regularly:

We are told that exercise is good for the body, the mind and the soul. However, the most important benefit that you can get from exercise is mental. It can help you to relax and clear your mind. When you exercise regularly, it helps to build healthier muscles thus helping to tone your body. Having a good body image is something you will grow fond of as you get older.

Don’t be afraid to try something different:

As we get older, our bodies tend to get dull and muscle memory takes over. We don’t always think about how our bodies are feeling or how they are performing. Therefore, it is important to try different exercises and choose exercises that you feel comfortable with. You don’t have to go to the gym every day or do sit-ups in your pajamas while watching “The Big Bang Theory”. There is value in trying new things and trying something different.


Well, time is something that can’t be changed. It will always come and it will always harm you. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t change when it comes to how you handle it. You can choose to be a victim of time or you can choose to be a survivor and enjoy every moment of your life. Which one would you choose?
