Ways to invest in yourself do not always need to be expensive. When we hear the word “investment” we immediately think of dollars and cents, offshore accounts, interest rates etc. That is a rather narrow way of looking at investment, in my opinion. I prefer to think about self-investment in a wider way: every single thing we do in our daily lives can be an investment.
What am I talking about? Well, here are five of the most valuable ways to invest in yourself and get great returns for life!
1. Treasure Your Friendships
It takes time and effort to build good long-term relationships with friends. So, why do it? Studies show that people who have at least five people they can confide in, talk to and who’ll listen to them are much happier than people who have no one or people who have a lot of superficial relationships. Deep, meaningful friendships mean that you’ll always have the support of people who don’t judge you, and who are there when things are bad… and good. Friends are an invaluable investment. Treasure them.
