Do you ever think the grass is greener on your neighbor's lawn? Is there is always something else you need or want? If only you could get a new car or new, bigger home? But once you do get the bigger house or new auto you still feel something is lacking?
These feelings of wanting can leave you feeling less than satisfied with your own unique position in life and feeling less than satisfied. But it doesn’t have to be like this. You can change how satisfied you are with your life.
Have A Close Friend
Did you know having a close friend can change your outlook on life? Time magazine recently reported that people with a close friend are up to 20% more satisfied with their lives than those who do not have someone close to them.
Having a close friend also shows that you have people that you trust and people find you trustworthy. These are both elements that evoke feelings of satisfaction in yourself. Having someone to share your day to day successes with also help people feel more satisfied.

Get Serious About Your Health
Nothing is worse than being sick all the time. This is why staying healthy through proper diet and exercise is one of the easiest ways to improve your overall life satisfaction. Fox News reported that people living a healthy lifestyle had a greatly improved mental well-being.
Being physically able to care for yourself provides comfort and confidence as you age. The benefits of being physically healthy effect not only your life satisfaction by changing how you feel, but will affect your job satisfaction, your relationship satisfaction, and other facets of your life. You know there really is no downside to eating well and staying healthy.
Become More Positive
Positive Psychology Program highlights how you think about yourself and your environment is directly related to your life satisfaction. Establishing positive thought habits can help increase your life satisfaction. When you catch yourself viewing things in negative terms or through a negative experience, you should work to replace these thoughts with positive, life affirming thoughts.
Because life satisfaction differs from happiness, it can be changed by adjusting your point of view. It can be as simple as choosing to be satisfied with what you have. You can also choose to be satisfied by changing your goals and dreams.
Remember, life satisfaction is more about how you view what you have, rather than constantly seeking happiness.
