Being a better person
If there were no constants in the universe, it would be in chaos. In fact, possibly, the world as we know it would not exist. That existence of constants also applies to human relationships. That is, if we did not cultivate habits like that of a good education, society would be much worse than it is now.
We are in the field of ethics and morals, and we wanted to launch a decalogue of advice or tips to be a better person. Achieving this, unfailingly, also helps to achieve a better society.
Be nice be happy
This is our first tip. It is enough just to get into the habit of saying “good morning” and “good night” to improve as a person both internally and in relationship with others. As the habit requires practice, so that you do not forget, we recommend these images of good Christian days that you can place at the bottom of the screen, your mobile or computer screen and thus remember how important it is in human relationships The education.
Know what is right from the hand of the wise
Education can become just a wrapper if it is not accompanied by good deeds or good faith. In other words, good ethical reflection and good morals in interpersonal relationships.
In this sense, another interesting habit to add to the day to day may be reading texts on ethics. Each one has his own preferences. They may be of a Christian, Buddhist, Jewish character or originating from some Greek thinker.
With these texts on the good being, you can discover reflections that help us illuminate doubts we had about how to behave.
In short, it does not hurt to know what is the correct attitude according to the great sages.
Whoever has a friend has a treasure. It is an old saying, but it still has validity. And is that loneliness is not good. It can make men and women sour and suspicious. And what is worse, make them lose the perspective of the good and the bad.
In addition, as Seneca said ” Friendship is always helpful “, both for those who seek it and for those who find it. Going through life knowing internally that we have friends makes us better, friendlier and disposes us to help others.
Know how to forgive and forget
There are serious offences. Of course. But generally, on a day-to-day basis, most are issues that can and should be forgotten. Accumulating small hatreds can make you a bad person. While being flexible before the mistakes and offences of others allow building more optimistic and benevolent morale.
Also, scientifically, forgiving is good for your health. Since stress can cause tension caused by resentment, freeing yourself from it through forgiveness allows:
- Reduce heart rate.
- Lower arterial pressure.
- Decreased brain stress.
- Improve sleep.
- Facilitates digestion.
Never stop playing
In the game, there is the illusion and also the ability to know the best of other people.
Freud, Aristotle, Plato and even Jesus of Nazareth himself gave much importance to the game. In addition to the illusion, innocence, trust in the other person and, very importantly, laughter, gather around him. Three essential aspects of a good person and that, generally, are forgotten in maturity.
Be flexible with yourself and with others
Perfectionism has two faces. The good news is that you can create things well done. The bad news is that if you are not flexible with yourself or with others when things do not go well, relationships will be blurred.
It is often said that what is important is the good intention that one puts to any company. Regarding the results, there are many factors involved. When something goes wrong, it is not all the fault of the person in charge of carrying it out.
So it is important to be flexible. Because not doing so can lead us: first to be badly educated, and second, to mistreat the other person or ourselves.
The balance between education and freedom
It is a good person to respect the freedom to others. However, when those people are children, the fear that someone will harm them or educate themselves incorrectly can turn parents into authoritarian beings, which is not a typical virtue of good people.
Those who find themselves at that crossroads can turn to experts to teach them how to find the middle ground between educating and granting freedom to people.
Trust people more
There are people who are initially suspicious of others because of past negative experiences. It is what is called Pistantrophobia. They distrust as a defence method to suffer again. They have come to the conclusion – from a negative experience with someone – that it is better and safer to distrust everyone.
There are other people in the pole since they act in a contrary way: they trust people at the first change. They do not prejudge them and prefer to start a personal relationship on the right foot.
The second group of people who move away from that “think badly and you will be right” are usually happier and have many more friends.
Encourage positive thoughts
Sometimes managing the emotions and thoughts that go through our heads is a difficult task. But it is important to cultivate emotional intelligence and turn negative thoughts around and make them positive and optimistic.
Failure to do so can distort reality or think badly of other people. This last bad habit can be the cause that we end up treating them badly. Sometimes, for things that have not been said or done.
Watch your health
Sport and taking care of yourself in general greatly help you feel good, eliminate stress and sleep well. This positively affects mood and promotes optimism. From there, from the conviction that things can improve is where the essence of good people comes from.
Play sports at your own pace, without suffering. And eat well so that your body and mind work better.
