The lifestyle we lead nowadays is nothing short of luxurious..the things that were considered as a luxury in earlier times are blatantly considered as commodities..be it a car, a mobile phone, a laptop or anything except food, water, clothes, and house have become an indispensable part of our lives. The pressure of having a high-class lifestyle has increased to great heights which has led to a substantial increase in pressure of earning a high income. In fact, despite having everything people feel the drive to compete with their peers and family members.
This lifestyle chase has led people into a whole new world of depression, anxiety, and sadness as people are unable to live happy life because of this uncontrollable desire. Isn’t it better to live a life free of so many worries? Isn’t it better to relax a little while you earn your way through life? So what can you do to lead a happy, fulfilling, and decent luxurious life?
1. Manage money: The money you earn in a year should be diligently managed in order to have a decent life and savings or the future. Then, you need to prepare a monthly budget that includes groceries, daily items, EMIs or rent, bills, etc..then, the money left can be used to either make investments of your choice or it can go into savings or a fixed deposit. In this way, you will be able to figure out how much you need to save more and how much excessive spending you need to control.
2. Be satisfied: Always remember that whatever you do, whatever you buy..there will always be something better in the market or there will always be someone you know in a better position..so do not compare your lifestyle with anyone as it would only make you jealous and tense. You should always be satisfied with what you have because in this way you would be able to maintain your inner peace and would be able to truly enjoy your life to the fullest.
3. Do not hoard: You might need some luxuries to carry on with a smooth life, but every luxury your peers or your friends have might not be necessary..so, buy those things which are absolutely necessary..like, a car or air conditioner, a television, etc but certain things are not that important which should be avoided so that the money you can save is invested on something that loses value very easily.
4. Assets: Try to invest in assets that have appreciating assets like gold, property, etc rather than depreciating assets..like buying a car or furniture, etc if you already have one in a good condition.
