10 Pieces of Life Advice That I Follow

Were still in quite a weird time right now, and making the most out of life probably looks a-lot different than if I was writing this a year ago. But none-the-less I think its still so important that we make the most out of life. Not to get morbid here, but we don’t know when our time will be up. We don’t know when we will die, so why do we always put these off for a later time or not appreciate the time we do have here enough?

I’m writing today’s post as a reminder to you and to me too. That we must do all we can to appreciate and love the life we are in now. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so live your life today. Here are my top 10 pieces of life advice that I follow, that allow me to make the most out of life.

1. LIVE WITH NO REGRETS

Everything happens for a reason. Im a firm believer that we have our path laid out for us already.

2. TREAT YOURSELF

In moderation of course. You can treat yourself in many different ways, one way being through self-care, take yourself on a spa day or take a day off, do nothing all day. Its your choice! I always remind myself I cant take my money with me when I die. This is my motivation to always book holidays! (This was when we were allowed haha)

3. TREAT EVERYDAY LIKE ITS YOUR LAST

Who knows how long we are here for, everyday is a blessing. Live your life to the fullest and have no regrets in doing so.

4. NEVER TAKE THE ONES YOU LOVE FOR GRANTED

Life can slip away so quickly. Tell your loved ones you love them, daily. Appreciate and spend time with the people you love like your friends or family. You can learn so much from others and they can learn so much from you. Don’t let the small things we cannot control get in the way of your relationships.

5. DO THINGS NOW RATHER THAN LATER

I try to not make plans too far in advance, live for now. Don’t wait until the weekend to enjoy your life, I think we should all appreciate the present more than we do.

6. MAKE THE EFFORT, EVEN IF YOU DON’T WANT TO

You should do this, especially when you don’t want to. Don’t miss out on the precious time you have. Sometimes it’s okay to say no when you don’t have the time or energy. But I think we miss out on a-lot of life experiences because were so caught up in doing something else.

7. DON’T BE AFRAID OF FAILING

Failing is a part of life, without it we wouldn’t know what success was. We need to learn to get out of our comfort zones and do the things that scare us. This is what helps us to grow as people.

8. ITS OKAY TO CRY

Happy tears or sad, let it out! Sometimes its just about mindset, you have the power and control to get yourself into a more positive mindset.

9. LOVE WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART

Have a heart thats so big you can see it from space. Fill it up with people you love and experiences to cherish. Don’t forget to love yourself too, thats just as important.

10. ALWAYS BE YOURSELF

Be authentically you. And learn how to accept who you are and the body you are in.

What do you think of that list? What is your list, or what would you add to mine?

  1. Some great advice Olivia! #4 and #7 really resonate with me. Which one the 10 is closest to heart for you?
    Another one for me is to be optimistic at all costs. And to be kind – always.

    1. Thank you Jan!
      I think they are all equally important but if I’d have to pick it would be number 4. I think we often forget how fragile life is and how it should be cherished everyday💛

      I love those two you mentioned. I think so many people lack optimism and just think the worst all the time, which doesn’t help with creating a positive mindset!
      And yes, being kind always is a must!

  2. Wonderful advice. Especially those of taking care of ourselves and adding value to our lives because we can only offer as much value as we have.

  3. This is a great way to live your best life! I totally agree and follow most of these same practices, but no.1 I can’t say, unfortunately. While I absolutely appreciate my life and where I am today, there are so many things I wish I had done differently! I’m constantly trying to learn to get over that feeling, but it isn’t easy for me. I said one day I’d write a post about living life with regrets, since a lot of people say you shouldn’t. Maybe soon. 🤷🏽‍♀️

  4. Those are pretty amazing tips!! I try to live by the fact that it’s the effort that matters more than the outcome, and it works a lot in preventing procrastination 😂 So, I really loved how you included the ‘Do it Now…’ tip! Amazing post as always!!

    1. Thanks for reading!

      Yes I love that tip! As long as you started and tried your best who cares about what the outcome is! The whole fact you tried is amazing 🙂

  5. Such a big fan of the ‘treat yourself’ as I always think if we don’t fill up our own tanks how can we give out to others? Im also continually working on ‘making the effort even when I don’t want to’ 😊 such a great list! Thanks for sharing 😍

  6. Advice #3 #7 & #8 are absolute must.

    Life is so fragile. It’s only when we have so much time in our hands (lockdown) we realise just how granted we take life for. Xx

  7. Beklenen – Necip Fazıl Kısakürek

    Ne hasta bekler sabahı,
    Ne taze ölüyü mezar.
    Ne de şeytan, bir günahı,
    Seni beklediğim kadar.
