If you could do just one thing to improve your quality of life what would it be? For me, it would be to have my dislocated rib fixed so I could be more mobile and not have to stop doing the activities I enjoy, it will heal in time, but it would definitely improve my quality of life, what about you??

My overall health. Although I could probably do that by taking better care of myself. It is just hard anymore to get into running or any activity. If only we could have a few more hours in the day in order to get everything accomplished yet if there were more hours there would probably just me more things that needed to get done.

Yes you're right and the older you get it seems it now takes me three times longer thinking about what to do next as it took me to just go do the darn job.

At least it is an attainable goal and one that you could work on to achieve. Thanks for contributing

I would have a much higher education. I have so much potential and a good head on my shoulders, but I lack the paper of education behind me to back me up. I have experience in so much and am a great asset to companies...I have even proven myself to many superiors many times over. But...because I do not hold a piece of paper in my hand that shows a collective amount of credit hours...I am not looked at or even enough credit for what I have learned through my years.

I understand exactly Tia, maybe there are some online courses you could take to further your knowledge in your field, just a thought. Thanks for contributing

I've already done a lot to improve my quality of life, during the past five years. Mostly what remains now, is to downsize my "life infrastructure" in such a way that I have to put less effort into working to support it-- so I can "enjoy it" more, instead. A lot of people tell me I just need to find work I enjoy more... but frankly, I have never really enjoyed working. I am, at heart, a "Creative Slacker." I've finally come to the conclusion that MY answer isn't about "more money," but about a "size of life" that can be supported by my working less. I'm not suggesting that works for ANYone else, just seems to be the right answer for ME.

Good for you Peter, I try everyday to make improvements to my life, just sometimes it feels as though it is not going in that direction, glad to see someone has. Thanks for contributing

for me it would be to be without my dyslexia. What a boon it would be to be able to express myself fully in the written word, blessed be

I'd just love to drop 100 pounds and have both my knee replacements for excately the same reasons as you've outlined in your post. Hip replacements and knee replacements have become a very routine surgery here in Canada. I hear of a lot of it being done.

I think for me, i would have the baby i have always wanted, and do something to heighten my energy... There's not a whole lot i would do otherwise.... I mean it would be nice to pay every bill every month, but it's not that important to me, happiness is, as long as we have a roof over our heads, food in our stomaches, heat, running water, and each other, we can live this life the best way possible... I think the only other thing i would do is see some of my most important friends in person, Because some of the most special people in the world to me, seem like their a world away....

the hard part for me, is not having good patience... I have to work on with my attitude, dicipline, pride, and way of thinking for me to improve my quality of life...

I would like to quit smoking to improve my quality of life. I cant do alot of things i would like to do as far as exercise and outdoor things because the smoking makes it hard for me to breath and i smother when i try to be active. So maybe i can quit and have a better life.

If I had health benifits I could and would do alot of thinngs, like get some glasses. and stop wearing these dollars glasses because they mess you eyes up. I would go to dentist and get my teeth fix. those are some of the things I would do. Move in a much bigger nicer house. have a good day off to work!

I'd rather learn how to save enough money wisely and try to think right decisions.I have done so many mistakes in my life, and if I could only be given another chance,I'll not do the same again.

Actually the only thing I can think of that might improve my quality of life seems petty next to yours but I would like to get a degree so I could provide for my family better than I have thus far. I don't need to be rich but it sure would be nice to afford a vacation or even dinner out someplace besides McDonalds.

I would banish my fibromyalgia or get my feet fixed (the dr says it can't be done.) If I could walk without pain & stand life would be very good!
