As the saying goes “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift…that’s why they call it present.” We need to live our lives fully so that at the end of life we feel satisfied with what we have done and don’t have regrets about relationships, not accomplishing things we wanted to achieve, or not living the way we wanted to. Here are some ways to live your life fully and without regret. 

1. Take Action to Accomplish Your Dreams
As we live life, people have many expectations of us. As we get busy fulfilling these expectations, we may forget to pursue our own dreams. So make a list of your dreams and take action on accomplishing them. This can give you more excitement in life and help you to reach your potential.

2. Manage Your Time Well
Avoid overwork, which can keep you from living life fully. It can cause you to miss important moments with your family and friends and can keep you from enjoying activities you love. So take time off from work and enjoy vacations. You will be glad that you did. 

3. Laugh More
Don’t take life so seriously. Laugh more. Laughter instantly makes you feel happier. Each day, do something fun that brings you joy. Worry robs you of your happiness and the things that you worry about are usually not as important as you think they are.

4. Keep Relationships Alive
As we live our busy lives, we might lose touch with great friends. Often, people later regret losing connections, so make enough time for your friendships. Also, practicing kindness and forgiveness creates better relationships and is also good for your well-being.

5. Try New Things
We get into the habit of doing things the same way every day. But this can cause life to become monotonous and unfulfilling. So regularly try new things. If you eat the same foods each month, try a new dish. If you always hike in the same spot, try a new trail. Just a little change can refresh your life. By trying new things, you also get out of your comfort zone which can lead to new ideas and accomplishments.   

6. Focus on the Positive
Don’t let bad experiences keep you down. They are often stepping stones or lessons in life. For example, entrepreneurs and inventors often
fail a few times before they achieve great success.

A coach can help guide you toward accomplishing your goals while also helping you to maintain balance in your life so that you live your life fully.
