What Matters Most In Life: Here Are 12 Good Reminders
(This article originally appeared at perfect24hours.com)

What Matters Most In Life:

https://i.pinimg.com/474x/94/2b/eb/942beb7ccf31dae6f5b2445fdf3e55b2--integrity-quotes-colorful-quotes.jpg1. Every minute counts.
In one of her quotes, Blaze Olamiday says, “Don’t hesitate to live every moment out of your life in the best way you can because living is once, chances are rare, and nothing is certain.” Another important factor in life is the will to accept our mistakes and learn from them to create a better future.

2. Search your soul to find who you are.
Few people understand who they are. No one except yourself knows who you are. To help you with this, look at your principles, the people you love hanging out with, and whatever you enjoy doing most. The three will help you understand who you are. “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken’’ (Oscar Wilde).

3. Experience is what matters most.
Forget about what you read in books or what you learned from your mentors; the most important factor is the experience. It is said that experience is the best teacher—this is entirely true. Only a fool will not learn a single thing from their past.

Are you happy with the person you are now? A few people will answer yes to this question. If your answer is yes, you would not be interested in reading my article. If no, there is a reason behind it. The reason is your past experiences. It is, therefore, good to understand your past.

4. Know what counts most.
Look at this wonderful quote from Mahatma Gandhi: “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, and your values become your destiny.”

Are your values acceptable in your society? Through religious institutions, schools, or even family, values are instilled to us. Values are what guide us to living a good life, not only for yourself but also for the society we are living in.

5. Give and share with others with love.
https://i.pinimg.com/474x/89/18/20/8918200638826a8af4ad8479ebf8f946.jpgThis all begins by loving yourself. It is difficult to love others without loving yourself. Look at yourself every day in the mirror and say good things about yourself. At first, this will look weird, but trust me, it gives the much-needed confidence.

It is through self-love that we can love others. Loving someone gives you strength and courage. Coexistence is key here if you want to live a good life. Learn to live well with others.

6. Be happy.
Happiness is one of the most important factors in life. Happiness attracts happiness; it is through your happy moments that you realize the positive sides of your life.

Putting too many worries to yourself will not change anything. As you take note of the things that are pulling you down in life, take a moment to celebrate the good moments in your life. Think about your family or your accomplishments. Take time to celebrate this moment.

7. Remove the unnecessary clutter.
Clutter not only drains you physically; it is also an emotional factor. Every time you walk into your cluttered house or office, it kills your morale.

Have you ever felt uncomfortable in your own house or feel guilty whenever someone visits you? Its time you start cluttering the items in your house. Why is it important to remove the unnecessary things in your life?

Here is the reason: It takes away your focus. The unnecessary things in your house take away your focus. Instead of focusing on the real issues, your mind is diverted, hence wears down and your ability to focus.

Research done from Princeton University indicates that everything that catches your sight competes for your attention. It is, therefore, advisable to make your place as tidy as possible to concentrate best at your working place.

8. Remove clutter.
Scientists have proven that clutter spike your stress hormones. A study involved houses with abundant toys or household items and house without the mentioned items. Clutter has similarities with multitasking—both overload your brain. It makes you unnecessarily stressed and anxious.

A research study done about mothers indicates that their stress levels on the thought of an untidy home. They were more relaxed when the house was left clean and organized in the morning. Unclutter your house every morning, and your day will be better.

9. Clutter is costly.
Clutter robs you not only time but also money. Think about how your day has always been, looking for lost car keys every morning, a lost file in your computer, or even a misplaced paper in your office.

As if that is not enough, losing some items come with an additional cost of paying for the penalties involved.

10. Having clutter might lead to an increase in body weight.
A rise in the stress levels increases your body weight. This is not, however, the case for everyone; stress decreases the body weight of others. Families with clutter are more likely to consume more food than their organized counterparts.

It is because you are more likely to consume more food when exposed to them. Even though everyone has the urge to consume more food, people who are always exposed to more food will likely consume large amounts of food. The setup of your home or workplace is a reflection of your mind and body.

11. Clutter holds you to the past.
Clutter traps you in the past according to the feng shui principle. The principle states that through clearing clutter in your place, you release the negative energy and develop positive energy. Also, clearing clutter opens the way for new opportunities in life.

Keep only the things that are close to your heart. Discard other things. By doing so, you can reset your life. You can also donate them to others who may need those items.

12. No one cares about your stuff.
Are you feeling unwanted and lost? Does no one seem to give a damn about you? You are not alone; many people feel the same.

The only reason why you think you are alone is that few people will come out to express this feeling. Never spend any second of your time worrying about people who don’t care about you. They are not worth your time. By worrying about them, you are justifying their act of not caring about you.
