5Easy Ways to Make Your Life More Meaningful

Finding your life’s goal and your true passion will help you to find great satisfaction in everything you do, it will help you to live every day to its fullest and it will even help to inform who you truly are. Finding this meaning can transform your life in all the best ways.

But it’s not so easy to do that for most of us. Many of us don’t have a single objective or dream and this can leave us feeling a little listless and directionless.

But here’s the thing: meaning doesn’t have to come only from one goal or one life’s mission. Meaning can come from small things too depending on how you approach them.

Here are some tips to make everything more meaningful.

Find the Meaning

Meaning is really something we assign to things and nothing more or less than that. Activities in your life have meaning only if you believe they do.

And unfortunately, many of us go through a vast range of different activities believing them to be boring or unimportant. One trick is to always try to ‘notice the best bit’. Or at the very least, just focus on what it is that others might find exciting or important about the thing you’re doing.

Share With Others

If you do something and no one knows about it, then it has no lasting impact. You can’t discuss it and it will quickly fade away from your memory.

But when you share a moment or an achievement with someone, it gives it much more meaningful impact. Not only is this a powerful way to build a bond and become closer to someone, but it is also a great way to make sure that your moments impact more than just yourself and have a wider reach.

If you can’t share the moment then the next best thing is to immortalize it by writing about it: try keeping a journal.

Take Your Time

Things can have more meaning when we spend more time reflecting on them, taking them in and enjoying them.

You can make everything more meaningful and a better experience in this way; whether that means just taking the time to eat your food slowly and savor every morsel or whether it means looking around, listening to the sounds and looking at the sights. Take the time to savor every morsel of life and it will all taste that much richer.

Plus, you won’t get indigestion.

Flow States and Finding Meaning in Life

If you’re at all interested in self-development, then you may be familiar with the concept of the flow state.

A flow state is a state of mind that is characterized by a reduction in activity in the prefrontal cortex – known as transient hypofrontality. In this state our sense of self shuts down and we become highly engaged with whatever we’re doing, to the point where it just seems to ‘flow’ out from us without any conscious input.

In sports, this can sometimes happen in response to a highly tense situation. At this point, time might seem to dilate and slow down as everything moves in slow motion around us. We’ll find ourselves able to react with amazing speed and reactions.

When writing this can happen too. You can end up so fixated on what you’re writing that everything else seems to fall aside and disappear.

And it is said that many startup companies spend their entire time in flow states and that this is one of the biggest predictors of their success.

It is also said that flow states are the ‘ultimate state of human performance’, the key to amazing creativity and even the secret to happiness.

And how do you ensure you spend more of your time in flow? Simple: you start doing things that you absolutely love. You find your true life’s purpose and your passion.

Why Meaning and Purpose Create Flow

When you find your purpose in life, you have a single set goal and something that you feel highly intrinsically motivated to accomplish.

This comes from a belief that that thing is important or a feeling that it is exciting and fascinating. That then causes the brain to focus entirely on that thing going on. Because it seems so important, nothing else seems more important and so all of your resources are directed that way.

We attain flow states when we are snowboarding down the side of a mountain at breakneck speeds because our body knows it needs to promote flow in order to survive. But when we are working on something we love, the same effect is caused by our simple love for that topic.

The incredible motivation, focus and sense of fulfilment that can come from this is unmatched and that is why it is so important that you discover your life’s purpose and your meaning. The challenge starts now!

I wish you so much success and fun with your new way of living!

All the best for you,
