Have you ever felt the same? Sometimes we find ourselves stuck as if there is nothing in this world that we could do. We feel so worthless and can’t find the purpose to live. We are humans and we need something to wake up for. We need something to excite us when our routine is boring.
This could happen at any stage in your life (especially when you are in your twenties), whenever you find future to be a blur. You were too young when you picked a career, a career to be happy with for the rest of your life, but generally, that doesn’t turn out to be true.
But, nothing happens by remaining anxious and there are few things you could realize to make your life better:
You can never plan your whole future.
You might be able to make plans for what you want to do next, but it isn’t possible to know what life will throw your way in the coming days.
There are too many twists and turns in life and you should embrace them while keeping in mind that you should always find time to do what you enjoy doing.
If you don’t have a job that you love but are still stuck with it, look for better options or you can simply indulge in your hobbies as a happy past time. You never know when your hobby turns into a successful business venture.

There is always discomfort but adjust to it.
Life isn’t a bed of roses and it would get uncomfortable from time to time. Sometimes we are broke and can’t even pay for the Big Mac that we want to have. Similarly, when you are out there pursuing your goals, you would need to get out of your comfort zone and that’s what you have to adjust to.
Don’t give up only because it seems too hard or doesn’t let you get eight hours of sleep.
Don’t give up because you have to move to new surroundings leaving your friends and family behind.
When you don’t seem to find a purpose in life, it is always a good idea to join some volunteer work.
If you get an opportunity to intern for something which is your hobby, you must take it. You have no idea where it might take you. When you turn out to be good in what you do, it’s going to open new gates and take you to new heights. Sometimes we think we are going to like something, but unless we try it, we don’t realize that it’s not of our interest. Gain experience in different fields before we figure out what dream we want to pursue.

Even minor goals could also give you a sense of purpose. Have an aim to wake up next morning and go on a 8mile run. Next day make it 10 and so on. If you do 50 pull-ups the first day, set an aim to complete a 100 over the next few days.
Motivate yourself to be active in life and work on your body. And I don’t mean only exercise, but you should also include a healthy diet in your routine.
Avoid having junk food and unhealthy snacks which contain trans fats, but rather indulge in fruits and vegetables.
Try to enjoy the present.
Relaxation is crucial if you want a happy and healthy life. Isn’t that the most important purpose of life?
When your 10-year-old self sees you in the present, what would it not appreciate? When you were young, maybe you had big dreams but the biggest was to be satisfied with whatever you had.
You can’t take over the future by consistently planning for it, but you might make it great if you work on your present. Get back in touch with what you loved as a child.
Social pressures might have ruined your present but it’s always good to keep the little kid alive in you and do what your heart wants. Even if you are in doubt, deep inside you always know what you like to do.
If you don’t, then start experimenting different things and you’ll soon figure it out.
