How to Change Your Perspective

How to Change Your Perspective

How to change your perspective – There are times when life can get you down or throw challenges your way. It would be easy to hide under your duvet and hope everything has changed by the time you decide to get out of bed but that isn’t really practical. The best way of dealing with life’s curve balls is to try and turn every negative into a positive. You can do this by changing your perspective and looking at life in a completely different way. Here are some tips:

Write Down Your Goals

When there are so many things to do or so many problems to fix, it can seem like there’s no way out. However, when these problems are stacked up in our heads, they seem a lot worse than when they’re written on paper. Writing your goals down will allow you to free your mind and tackle each one, one at a time. Writing things down may make you realise that things aren’t as bad as you initially thought, changing your perspective and allowing you to find solutions.

Change Your Surroundings

A change in the atmosphere can change the way you think. People are often lighter hearted in the Summer because the sun is out and the days are longer. If you’re looking for a way to change the way you think, why not change the things around you first? For example, some home maintenance can do wonders. Anything from a fresh lick of paint to new furniture could encourage a more positive outlook, especially if you spend a lot of time at home.


There’s nothing like travel to broaden your horizons. Travelling can really change your perspective on your own life when you see how other people live. In the western world, we tend to develop a sense of entitlement, but nothing will change your views on life more than being guided through the South African Cape. Here’s a list of place to travel when you want to change your perspective.


Whether you choose to volunteer at a charity, work in a food bank or help feed the homeless, or even answer calls from vulnerable children and adults who need help, it will certainly be an eye-opener. Sometimes, what we consider to be a problem, is barely a problem at all to some. Volunteering your time may give you the opportunity to see what it’s like to live in someone else’s shoes and you may come away more grateful for your own life.

Boost Your Confidence

When you feel like you’re stuck in the mud, it’s easy for life to get you down. Losing your confidence can be a big hurdle that you have to overcome, but once you do, you’ll be thrilled. If you’re around people who constantly put you down, consider spending less time with those people. You could also get a new haircut or buy a new outfit if it makes you feel more confident. When you need a huge boost, why not try something radical, like a change in career or moving to a different area?
