I am always thinking about this every day of my life. I have done many things over the years to try to make it better. I just cannot seem to find peace and happiness in it though.

I think we all do that, but the best way to do it efficiently is make a massive list! Maybe categorize it, such as having one subsection be Finances, and another be Health, and so on and so on. It really helps! Sorry this isn't so much about HOW to make your life better, but more or less a tactic of how to go about it. All the best of luck!

That is one way to do it too. Make a list, and do whatever to meet the standard of your list. I would do that too, if I were you. Also, try to make a goal for your daily life, and see if you can meet your goal.

I honestly believe that having money is the only chance to make my life better. We are always lacking of it. Eventhough I do have a regular job, my earning is not enough and I'm sick of it. What I am doing presently, is job hunting for part time job but it is still not my luck. Peace of mind, I don't have it now because of so many problems that comes along. I can't balance a normal life with peaceful life, because my normal life is with problem and If I don't have it maybe its time of dying. My life is not easy as of the moment and who isn't anyway? Waht I can do as of the moment is became thrifty. As much as possible to have savings. i don't spend much now, I only give the budget to my mother and the rest is just my transportation allowance. This is ranting actually. I am having a bad day, sorry for the response.

I have been on a mission to improve my life for the past few years and I have learnt how to prioritise and lately I have discovered how to get a handle on my depression by visiting my doctor and being prescribed appropriate medication which is something I have been meaning to do for years and it has improved my life tenfold. I don’t think we can ever stop trying to improve our existence, learn and grow.

I think about these things alot. Just getting by day by day seems to be getting harder than easier. Ive used blogging to hep organize my thoughts in the past and to set goals to be accomplished. Feel free to look at my blog its listed under my avi picture on my profile. These are blogs that are a work in progress but its fun to connect with other like minded people. Staying organzied with house cleaning and my responsibilities helps alot with making every day tasks easier. Making alot of money fast just dont seem like its within reach but working towards making alittle extra income is possible.

Hello Jugsjugs, I think of this all the time. Eat healthy, exercise, save your money, be careful of who you put your trust in, and just live life because no one will live it for you.

Everyday. Every single day I think about small things, big things, anything, that will make my life better or easier. I am still yet to find it. =/ Trying this online money thing. I know money doesn't buy happiness but. Eh, who the hell am I to say. Yes it does! When struggling with money, it puts a lot of stress on somebody or even a family. If I get my things in order and keep up the pace I'm at, me and my family will be doing some fun stuff in the next year or so.

I do the same things and at the same time keep all the household chores finish on time then go back to take a research on the computer then eat meal and then answer the call of natures and so on. Also keep a lot of control in the way water and electrical expenses. lastly avoid buying thing which is not needed most that is the way to saves a lot.

I have thought of the latter which is how to make a lot of money fast. Though our definitions of 'a lot of money' may be different. I've also thought of ways to clean, etc, that would be both environmentally safe, and cleans tough! Now, my husband and I don't have our own house yet but I still have thought of things about that, and researched so that when we do have our own house it will be a smooth transition from basically only paying for ourselves, and not paying bills to paying for our wants as well as our needs. We're hoping to step into it gradually.

Quentin Crisp, in The Naked Civil Servant, said something like, after the first year the dust doesn't get any thicker... Easier to not do housework when you live alone, though: no one else there to complain.

Who hasn't? The sad thing is you have people who say love makes the world go round, it's actually money. I know it can't buy all the happiness in the world but it sure takes away alot of stressors out of it. I've already got my loves, my hubby & my kids. Now I just need money to make it better. And that money will come slowly if I can work more hours as the kids get bigger OR wait to inherit it from my childless relatives.

Hi jugs, I have been thinking of getting better life since in my very young age I'm the type of person that would always try to simplify all those complicated works. It's not worthy to consume more time on tedious works such as those monotonous household chores and unchanged daily routine. It's a great pleasure if we could save some of or considerable time to do certain things which we are interested Yeah, I like doing things that could enhance or enrich our skill, knowledge, etc. I hope by doing so could enable me to earn more money. I’m not going to be a million or billionaire. I would feel content if the money I made monthly could afford the daily expenses. It would be much better if I could save part of them, so that I could use it whenever it is in need Have a nice day and happy posting!

My life would be better and alot easier if I lived in a studio apartment by myself. The rent would be lower and I would have more money for the month. I could make alot of money by getting a job but I can't work because of my disability. There isn't any real time saving way of doing the surveys, articles and discussions on here especially when my computer is beginning to freeze up after I just did a refrag on it and all was going well until I put AOL back on.

honestly im also thinking of things on hoe to earn extra money. in the house I wake up early in the morning to do all the house hold works, I only spend my money on those important things like food for me to have a savings. I use'd to have a list in order to be organize so that I could do all my works needed everday.

As far as I am concerned I am practicing the following to live a better life: stay healthy (eat nutritious food, practice healthy lifestyle and self-care) stay happy (attract and exude positive energies), appreciate little things (be generous in giving compliments to those who deserve it) and be thankful for big blessings. Always reach out to people and in our simple ways let’s create an impact in touching other’s life. WE CAN. Let’s maintain a good relationship, enjoy whatever we have and share our extrassssss.

Hi Jugs, I have been thinking how to earn more money in these days, but now I can not come up anything. Though I did not marry, I have a great psychological pressure for the future life. I am concerned that I did not have the economy source for my future life If I have a baby, I am worried that I could not provide the best for the baby if my future husband is not rich. I would like to rely on myself to make life better, that is the reason that I am getting on mylot daily. Nowadays it seems that developping the internet business becomes a trend that most of people would like to trade on the net. I am planning to it, but just confused what kinds of products would be popular in the near future, whether I can manage it if I have a daily career now. Have a nice day.

hello jugsjugs. yes, i have thought a lot of ways on how to make my life better. First thing in my mind is how to double my income, how to make a lot of money. Since money for me is one thing to fulfill my dreams that is why i have some sleepless nights thinking of the ways to have it. It is my dream to have my own business, basically more on hardware's or electrical supplies but i still don't have enough capital to even start it. For now, I just busy myself concentrating on my work and reading books that can enhance my knowledge in business and of course money.
