Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

5 Valuable Life Lessons

It only seems like yesterday that the year started but here we are, already a couple of months into the new decade! As you grow older, you go through so many life experiences, whether they are positive or negative – they teach you valuable life lessons. Your wellbeing should always be your first priority and incorporating these lessons will not only bring happiness into your life, but peace as well.

CREATE RULES

Establishing rules can bring a lot of balance in your life for instance determining what you will do and will not do & what you will allow and won’t allow. Not only will you feel your life more structured but you will feel much happier as well. For example, don’t try to look at your inbox after 7 pm. You pretty much have worked all day long so it’s a reasonable time to take a break. Anything after that time can wait until the next day.

Don’t work during the weekend except in a case of an emergency. You will feel much more productive and motivated since you had two days to disconnect. You can spend those two days spending quality time with your loved ones, doing something that you enjoy and by relaxing.

PLAN YOUR DREAMS

Instead of thinking about your goals and dreams, why don’t you take an action about it? If your dream is to become a writer, write every day. If your dream is to travel, take some time off from work and buy that plane ticket. It may seem abrupt but life is too short.

Dreaming & having big goals is amazing, but keeping your head in the clouds will never bring anything. It’s simply not enough. This lesson about taking action instead of dreaming will keep you motivated and on the right track in terms of your dream path. Take action every day and it will be a huge part of your success.

IT’S OKAY TO SAY NO

Everyone wants to avoid confrontations and conflicts as much as possible. You want to be loved and appreciated by your loved ones which means that most times, you avoid difficult conversations thus suffer in silence. Sometimes it can be much easier to say no to opportunities than to the toxic people in your life.

You might lose friends and even dearest ones but it’s important that you say no with ease when dealing with uncomfortable situations or environment. Difficult conversations are sometimes necessary for your personal growth and well-being. If those people truly love you and want to be with you, they will accept your decision.

BE CONFIDENT IN YOURSELF

It’s very important that you take time to focus on yourself. In order to face the day with determination, you have to channel your confidence. A great way to do it is by standing like Wonder Woman. Yes, we are talking about the pose you imagine: hands on hips and legs shoulder-width apart. Why? Because Wonder Woman is confident about who she is. She believes in her abilities and we should be too. Do it from time to time and you would be surprised of how much it will make a difference in your daily life.

DON’T FALL FOR OTHER PEOPLE’S PERFECT LI(F)ES

Sometimes you shouldn’t believe what you see, especially from social media. Everyone has their own struggles, flaws and weaknesses. Everything is not as rosy as they want us to believe and developing insecurities for things that might not even exist in the first place is just a waste. Concentrate on your own journey & path in life. You don’t need to look at, let alone compare with other people’s life.
