As the year comes to a close, many people take time to reflect on the past 12 months and consider how they might change things in the future. Face it- now is the perfect time to consider what you can do to improve your quality of life!

I really enjoyed this! What you've learned from watching people as a cashier is so right on- and I experienced so many similar things when I worked in a cupcake shop. Attitude is TOTALLY a matter of choice!
Oh, this topic is just right up my street. I’ve just published a hub that fits it even without knowing what this week’s topic was! I hope it’s okay to post the link here, as I’d already posted it before I saw this, so can’t make it link to the question. http://melovy.hubpages.com/hub/A-NaNo-Adventure It’s about how questioning beliefs can help overcome writer’s block. I also have another that’s been brewing for a while, so it will soon be ready. I can see this week is going to be great fun!
I recently published a hub on 25 ways to improve your life. Trying to take giant steps can be overwhelming, so with my hub, I wanted to give people small actions items that are actually doable. There is enough variety to apply to anyone. Check it out!
This is a great example of a quality of life Hub! We just tweeted it earlier this afternoon Thanks for sharing it here, Matt! Sounds like a bunch of folks were already on this theme well before we made it official!
I had already published the first two hubs in "An Anti-self-help Self-help Series", when I saw this weeks 'Topic Of Inspiration' . . . so I'm attaching my third entry here. This one I've titled "Recognizing The Reality Of The Circumstance Of Your Life". For many simply thinking 'things could be worse' may offer no comfort or council at all - but it does for me and, it seems like it should.
Thank you both so much for your kind words, I genuinely appreciate it. Here is my latest in my "Anti-self-help Self-help" series . . . I honestly wonder if it will be as well received as my previous three ~
If you want improve your life - don't dramatize. Many people inflate lethal disaster from minor failures and react accordingly. The habit of making mountains out of molehills generates anxiety, which is either non-existent or so small that we don't worry about it. Why do we do it? Who knows? May be to look and feel more important. In any case, this is as silly as it is pernicious. Most of the problems are in our heads.
Very cool! I appreciate the more unique suggestions you include in this Hub- it's nice to read something about improving one's quality of life that doesn't hit on the same conventional wisdom over and over!
One thing is for sure, without good health quality of life is not possible, so I think it will have to start with a healthy lifestyle. That said it is not always that easy. You may have to work around some chronic illnesses, but it should be possible with a positive mind.
This is quite true, though one can still make the best of a situation even if one is not physically well. It really is a combination of multiple factors- physical well-being is an important part, but so is having a good outlook, having good connections with other people, engaging in healthy, fulfilling activities, etc.
This is a very good one. I just wish we didn't have to deal with this AT ALL!!! That said, I suppose losing people you love is part of living, and I think your suggestions are great ways to process such difficult events.
People make lists all the time. Do something different and make a Happy List just for you. See if you can list 100 choices as a way to help make you happy. You never know when you'll need your Happy List, so keep it handy. Everyone needs a lift now and then.
Wow, sleep is not what I expected to be reading about at all this week, but it is SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART of well-being!! Great Hub. Believe it or not, this is the first time I've read about sleep as a pain reliever, but it makes all the sense in the world.
This is my first Hub Forum Topics post, I hope I did ok on it. Being an Army Wife there is a positive attitude that has to be present in everything we do. Here is a little bit of how I keep that positive attitude going.
Yay! I love this! I was taught early on about mindfulness and am pretty good at living in the moment, but given how we live these days, it's so easy to slip out. Thanks for encouraging me to get back on center!
I did one on daily affirmations. I don't normally do self-help type stuff, so this is kind of a first. I actually did it because I told myself I'd write a hub a few days ago. (and it was done, I was just missing a picture to go with it)
Simone, I think you must have superpowers, or some ability to influence teenagers through cyberspace. We were out shopping earlier, and my 13 year old daughter bought herself 2 hair bands (Alice bands in the States?) and a hair clip - all with large bows!
What an amazing topic and thread. Where do I begin? So many awesome hubbers and hubs to read. Great job everybody...I'll work my way through these. Lord knows I can tweak my quality of life right now. Teaching can inadvertently cause you to place important family matters and self-care on the backburner.
I'm having one heck of a problem writing something for this. Ironically, I have a paper I have to write that's also on the same topic which I still have to start. I want to turn my paper into a hub, but I have NO clue what to make the topic. It has to do with locus of control. But WHAT about locus of control should I write about? I have no idea. I don't want to just write a survey of the topic.
And on top of that, I'm super pressuring myself to make it something really good. This massive amount of pressure I've put on myself has turned regularly writing hubs into pulling my hair out over finding the perfect, fine-tuned topic.
Hi Melbel, try just writing, no matter what it is, or even what topic - have the topic loosely in mind, but don’t try to focus too much. Just sit down and allow what comes to come, and as best you can accept that much of it will be crap, but that by doing this you will get something worth while that can then be developed. A tutor once told me to think of it as the scaffolding, which is required for building, but gets taken once the building is finished. If you check out my NaNo Adventure hub (link is among the first few posts of this topic) you will get more on how this method works, and also there are two books listed that I found hugely helpful in getting past writer’s block.
Hey Melbel! If that doesn't work out, may I suggest a Hub about whether or not it is possible/easy to shift an external locus of control to an internal locus of control, and why one might wish to do that? I think that'd make for a very interesting paper.
