4 Easy Ways to Inject Fresh Satisfaction into Life

By Sandy Schroeder

It can be hard to be thrilled with life when one day blends into the next and the demands just keep coming. Sometimes we feel as if we are just getting by and we wish there was something more.

DumbLittleMan says a deeper sense of satisfaction really is within reach if we just take a few steps. Here are some ways to reach out and make life better.

Paint, Paper or Tile Your Home

Set aside a weekend and pick an area in your home that needs help. This may be a good time to redo the family or dining area for the holidays ahead. Enlist everyone’s opinion and assistance and make it happen. New colors, accessories and pieces of furniture can change the look and usefulness of a room. A new desk, bookcase, craft or game table might refocus the family room for the whole family.

Rethink Exercise Routines for Everyone

Most of us know we need to move more, but we may be plugging along with the same old exercises. Take a moment and review your schedule and that of your family to see how you can upgrade activities. Your kids may want to try a new sport and get out more on the weekends. You may need to get up a half-hour early to make that daily walk happen. Your spouse may be ready for a yoga class that eases the stress. Pick the things that are fun and find ways to make them happen daily.

Find Ways to Help Others

The satisfaction that comes from helping someone in need is hard to match. I think my kids and I enjoyed the holidays the most when we were out there helping others enjoy theirs. We baked cookies, and sang carols at our local children’s hospital and senior homes. We also spent time at the marine center donating supplies to save the baby seals. On other weekends we helped clean the park and the beach. Look around your community to see where you and your family can lend a hand.

Reconnect with Friends and Relatives

The holidays may be the perfect time to reach out to old friends and distant relatives. Invite them to Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, or plan a short trip to visit them. Emails and calls work, but it’s hard to beat one-on-one time in front of the fire. Call a family meeting and figure out what works best for you and your family.
