It’s challenging to be present in the moment. Some days I’m thinking of getting a safe or any box with a lock on it, to put my phone there and hide the key to my husband’s car for the day so I can’t get to it 😀 (I really should do that!)
People don’t have to have access to you all the time. It’s ok to say no and set up boundaries. It’s ok to put yourself first. This got me thinking – Remember those “good old school days” when you actually had a weekend. Nobody had phones so you didn’t necessarily hear from anyone during the whole weekend. You actually got a couple days off and heard about your friends again on Monday. Now it’s like we are in everybody’s lives at all times.
Listen and look around, like really look around when you go about your day!
Stretch and breath more deeply. We are made to move around.
Plan your day so that you don’t have to rush and hurry. Be realistic with the daily tasks what can be done and what can’t. Don’t set yourself up for failure getting too many things on your plate.
Be thankful, there’s always something to be thankful for.
Smile and quick hello is such a little gesture but it can make someone’s day – even your own.
Be aware and careful what and who you hang around with and what you let to influence you. Pay a close attention to that. You become what you surround yourself with. Again, boundaries <3
Concentrate to the things where you are good at and don’t swim into failure and feel bad about yourself all day everyday. Nobody is perfect. Other people can hide their failures and insecurities better than others.
Last but not least sometimes the most boring “nothing’s happening” days are pure gold, don’t be afraid to be bored once and a while 😀
Have a lovely Thursday!
