5 Easy Ways to Change Your Life for the Better Posted: Saturday, 27 May 2017 Sometimes you don’t even need a lotto jackpot win to change your life! These 5 easy ways to change your life for the better just might be the key to adding a little happiness to your world– try them out and let us know how you get on. Do the things you’re good at as often you can Just as birds seem to be happy when they’re flying about and dogs are clearly happiest when playing in a big pile of mud, people tend to be at their most content when they’re doing the things they’re really good at. Above all, putting time into your talents builds self-esteem. Whatever you’re good at – juggling, swimming, singing, solving equations, or even doing origami with money – keep on doing it to give yourself regular reminders of just how great you can be. Everyone has different skills and abilities. Don’t worry if you’re not sure what you’re good at yet – take this as an opportunity to try out some new things and find out! It’s never too late to discover what you were born to do. Get some fresh air PlayEuroLotto operates from the gorgeous Mediterranean island nation of Malta – so it should come as no surprise that we’re big fans of fresh air and natural beauty! It’s easy to forget the restorative power of visiting wild or rural places, but you’ll soon start to remember once you leave the city limits. Above all, spending time in the countryside is precious for city dwellers as it provides an environment with less noise; where there is space to think and breathe. But what is you already live in the countryside? Well, you could always shake things up with a trip to the city! As they say, the grass is always greener on the other side. Have more neighbourly conversations Many people around the world travel from place-to-place without saying a single friendly word to the dozens, hundreds or even thousands of people who pass them by. That’s a great shame, as it’s a missed opportunity to make connections, to understand the people around you and to spread a little happiness as you go. Try being more talkative with the people around you – when you’re waiting for the bus, when you’re riding in a taxi, and so on. Some folk won’t want to chat, but many others will prove to you that there’s a big, wide world out there, and you’re far from alone in it. And hey, if you’re one of our lottery players, why not try one of these ways to make lotto more social? Try to maintain a positive mental attitude This is one of the simplest pieces of advice we could offer – and also one of the hardest to follow. Staying positive can be tough when you’re faced with adverse circumstances like repeated problems at work, a bad moment in your personal life or a string of lottery losses. Our recommendation is that you focus on the little things in life that you really enjoy; simple pleasures like the company of a good friend or watching an episode of your favourite sitcom. When you acknowledge the good that exists all around you, you set yourself up for success and happiness on a larger scale. Raise your organisational game For some free spirits, there’s nothing worse than the idea of mapping out your whole life, and that’s not what we’re advocating here. What we are saying, is that most people can benefit from bringing a little extra organisation into play in their daily lives. Thankfully, there are loads of techniques and technologies to help you do it! One method we’ve found really helpful when it comes to increasing productivity is the beautifully easy-to-follow Pomodoro technique. Just create a list of everything you need to get done; break it down into bite sized tasks; then work through it in 30 minute intervals of 25 minutes work, 5 minutes rest/reward. Structuring your work like this can help you be more productive, which will ultimately give you more free time and leave you with a sense of accomplishment.
