Facing adulthood? When was the last time you actually sat down and peacefully breathed? It’s time you understood the importance of time and life. We’re all so busy that we forget how beautiful the world outside is. And you know what’s more important? The way you live your life.
Kids have a brilliant perspective of everything around them and there’s so much to learn from them. If you’re thinking left, they’re thinking right (see what I did there?) No matter what age you are, things can be really simple sometimes, but we never fail to complicate it every single time.
So here are 10 things that you can definitely learn from kids:
10. HOW TO NOT HYPERVENTILATE!
This is the most important thing you can learn from your kids. I understand that we’re all very stressed and tensed in life about how we’re going to go about it. But, having the time to listen to others, to your own kids will make you realize your real worth. Don’t take everything to another level. It makes no sense sometimes.
Kids don’t make a big deal out of everything. That’s for sure because what they have to do and what they think is right, they do it anyway. It has its own flaws, but at least they’ll learn it the hard way and understand life.
9. LAUGH WITHOUT LIMITS.
There’s no limit or boundary for laughter. Be open about everything and laugh when you get the chance to. Laugh as much as you can. Have you ever noticed how kids don’t even care if its the right time to laugh, but regardless, they still do?
8. ENJOY THE LITTLEST OF THINGS!
No matter how hard time gets, you should realize that it takes a lot to be happy in life. We all want to be happy and successful but that doesn’t mean we forget everything else. It is a beautiful feeling, to appreciate and to love what already exists.
And who teaches us best? Kids. They’re always happy and cheerful with every little thing there is. There’s so much to do in life and they make sure they cherish all there is to do so.
7. BE OPEN ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS.
We often curb our feelings because we feel that we’ll be putting in more to the argument or fight. It isn’t that. There’s a difference between understanding your view point and fighting. We all think differently about different things which aren’t incorrect at all. Be able to express how you’re feeling because that’s where the truth lies.
Kids, no matter how bitter they maybe, always express their emotions. Their ways of showing them might be really different from yours, but trust me, this is something we should for sure learn from them. We’re sometimes scared of consequences, they aren’t.
6. PREVENT HURTFUL FIGHTS!
We as adults sometimes take things very seriously. No matter, its human nature. However, sometimes we take it to another extent. We get really hyper and drag the littlest of things into an argument. Everyone makes mistakes but this is something you can change. Don’t make it a habit.
We don’t realize, but sometimes we get really rude. We hurt our kids and what we’re trying to say just doesn’t come out right. Not because we want to, but because we can. Kids don’t purposely fight. They don’t create issues at home just like that. There’s so much more to life than just dragging an argument.
5. BE RESPECTFUL TOWARDS YOUR BODY.
Oh most of us love compromising. And if not compromising, then we love being busy. We’re so busy sometimes that taking out time for probably a nap is too difficult. Our body has needs too. And if you don’t fulfill those, how are you ever going to achieve success?
Kids are always truthful and very concerned about their bodies. When they’re sleepy, they sleep. When they’re hungry, they eat. There aren’t any restrictions on basic body needs like this. So, even you can do the same. No one’s forcing you to not eat or sleep (they can’t, I’m telling you. Bed is the most beautiful thing mankind has ever made.)
4. DO THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY.
And again, sometimes we wonder what we’re missing out on. We aim so big that the little things in life just remain where they are. There are SO MANY things out there that make you happy. Just a smile on your kid’s face can make your day. Then why shy away from doing what you want to do anyway?
Kids understand the vitality of life. It is imperative that we understand this from them too for there’s nothing better than staying happy with whatever we have and whatever little we can do.
3. DON’T STOP DREAMING!
There’s no age limit for dreaming. Dreams aren’t only for kids. You should dream too and you can. Take advantage of your imagination and go as high as possible. It is an amazing feeling to be in a different world. Not all dreams are to be fulfilled. Some are just to sit and remember for the rest of your lives.
Kids do this best. Dream, dream and dream away. They daydream so much, they dream even when they’re doing something. And so what? What’s the harm? Some dreams come true and some don’t. It is beautiful, really.
2. BE PROUD OF WHATEVER YOU’VE ACHIEVED.
You surely have achieved a lot in life. Even if it’s just a job or a promotion, you have worked really hard to be where you are right now. Don’t forget how much you’re capable of doing. If you have the zeal to do something, you also know you’ll do it perfectly.
This is a prime thing you should learn from them. Because you know, you’ll always see that they’re motivated by whatever little they’ve achieved in life. Even if they scored really well in a test, they wouldn’t ever forget it for the rest of their lives. Or when they won a match, cooked really good food etc. They’ll always be proud of themselves.
1. NO MATTER WHAT, ENJOY.
Even if times are bad, things aren’t working out or if everything is going haywire, don’t forget to appreciate the good times you had. Kids love making themselves happy with the tiniest of things. It doesn’t matter how bad circumstances are. Once you believe in yourself and you know that what you’re doing is going to be alright, then why keep depressing over bad issues?
Life is short and there’s a lot we can do out of it. Kids teach us so much and honestly, their lives are amazing.
