3. Spend time with yourself.
“Become totally empty. Quiet the restlessness of the mind. Only then will you witness everything unfolding from emptiness.” – Laozi
Instead of investing in unproductive activities and unhealthy addictions like TV, computer games, alcohol, and drugs look inside and just spend some quality time with yourself. Focus on what makes you feel excited about life. What your passions, dreams, and desires are. What you are afraid of. Sit with yourself and identify what needs you have how you can fulfill them.
Do things that you enjoy or used to enjoy when you were younger. Write, paint, exercise, cook, or whatever you may find interesting. Meditating can also help you understand your needs and refocus on yourself. This will help you find more meaning in your everyday life.

You will stop taking good things for granted and shift your mentality from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset. You will start focusing more on what greatness is already present in your life instead of all that you don’t have. Gratitude will help to reduce your stress and anxiety, enable you to enjoy the little things in life, and make you more open to receiving blessings from the universe.

According to studies conducted by neurobiologists, learning new things and engaging in new experiences can help you feel a lot happier and feel more motivated in life. It has almost similar effects as dopamine and can help you experience emotional arousal.

Love yourself to find fulfillment
“Emptiness is not a great loss. It creates a great opportunity to fill yourself again and again with great love.” – Debasish Mridha
The first step to start filling your emptiness is to love yourself. When you love yourself, you will be more kind and compassionate to yourself, you will find new interests in life, you will pursue your dreams, you will attract more people, you will build deep, meaningful relationships and you will find your own happiness. Everything great in life starts with self-love.
There is no need for you to carry on living like this where you feel a vacuum inside you. Build a better relationship with yourself and give yourself the love you truly deserve. Once you have this figured out, everything else will fall into place by itself. It’s not that hard to live a meaningful life filled with purpose.
All you need to do is believe in the universe.
