Recently, I’ve gone through many changes — new place, new job, new social circles, and approaching mid-twenties — which means many adjustments to my lifestyle and many shake-ups to my identity. The first month on the new job was tough. I was excited but at the same time, I started questioning every choice I’d made. I didn’t…
Right now I am asking you to take a breath. Just one, simple, deep breath. Breathe in, then out. Okay. Here we go. Picture who you were. Four years ago maybe. How different you looked. How you felt. Where you were in your life. What has changed? What has stayed the same? Were you happy?…
Feel on top of your day with these easy tips to simplify and organize. You’ll be less stressed, enjoy a healthy lifestyle, and get more of your important tasks done each day.
Life does seem overwhelming and confusing at times, isn’t it? There’s no reason you cannot do some organizing to make it simpler!
After all, having too many small things to worry about does take the fun and enjoyment out of life. You have plenty of slack in your life that can be taken out if you know where to look.
Get the maximum out of each day while leaving enough time to relax. Simplify your busy day to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, and smile more, with these strategies:
Make a short list of things to do.
One of the things that wears us out is a super long list of things that probably runs a mile long. It is stuffed with too many things that look intimidating and impossible to finish.
It’s best to write out or make a short list of things that you can actually complete by the end of the day. Prioritize your tasks and you’re halfway there to feeling a lot better by the end of the day!
Create a morning ritual.
A morning ritual is important since it ensures that things get done before you leave the house for work. There’s no room for unnecessary clutter or confusion. Simply follow your morning routine for meditation, fitness, yoga, breakfast or other and you’ll be set for the day.
Control your time.
Too many demands on our time makes the day seem confusing, chaotic and unduly stressful.
A simple day contains relatively few tasks and obligations. Do not feel bad to say a “no” if strapped for time or otherwise. Only agree to something if you genuinely believe that doing it is wise.
Keep off other tasks till after work.
Avoiding stuffing tasks into your daily routine. However, make sure that they’re attended to after work.
Putting off tasks will create unnecessary hassles. Your morning ritual should be the only thing you do before work.
Probably there’s something that’s causing you a good deal of irritation and gives you a lot to complain about. Try fixing it and if you can’t, then don’t let it bother you too much.
You’ll feel better if you complain less. Try it for a month.
Carry a water bottle with you.
Staying hydrated is important, and water is the best thing for you.
You’ll be less tempted to drink something unhealthy when carrying a bottle of water with you. Try the same idea with healthy snacks.

Someone I know is only happy living in a white house, and he always paints the ceiling of his bedroom a perfect sky blue. He said he enjoys being in bed and looking up. The blue ceiling reminds him of when he was young and lying in a haystack on his family’s ranch in Texas… Continue reading Bedroom – Making it your Own 10/20/18
