Maybe it’s because I went for a run , or because the weather was so particularly nice today , but my head is just filled with creative energy and ideas today and I felt wonderful .
I got up , cuddled with my cat , went for a 20-minute run , had some breakfast , then cleaned my room and worked on my essay , had lunch , watched two documentaries , did yoga in the sun and had a wonderful dinner. Yet I know that not every day can be as flawless as this one , especially with school starting again in a few days and I will be stressed as always. Yet because I always strive to ameliorate my life and I love to try out new things I have collected a few ideas that I want to incorporate in my daily life .
1.Start doing a quick yoga flow in the morning right after I wake up instead of going on my phone for 10 minutes . I already do yoga a few times a week but after reading how beneficial it can be to your health , from a better self-image to reduced anxiety and stress, to bone and heart protection to increased flexibility , I really want to do it everyday even just for 10 minutes to kickstart my day.
2. Watch more documentaries . I love learning new things , especially about history and I keep forgetting how many great free documentaries are available to on youtube and also Netflix. I want to expand my knowledge in a lot of directions and documentaries and movies are one of the most enjoyable ways I imagine. So I plan on ( if I find some time) watch a few documentaries per week .
3. Work on my posture and my confidence . That starts with standing up straight and talking loud and clear and if necessary doing power poses in front of the mirror from time to time. The way we talk and present ourselves has such a great impact on our lives and I’ll try my best to feel more confident and strong in my body.
4. Meditate every night before bed for a few minutes again for health benefits and becoming more conscious of my body. I often tend to lay awake with negative thoughts at night and maybe it helps to meditate .
5. Increase my water intake . Even though I know how important it is to drink lots of water I rarely do it , so I just have to push through and do it . Tea would also be a grea alternative , because of it’s wonderful benefits.
So that is the plan starting from today on , because I am not a „starting on Monday “ kind of person at all.
What do you do to make your day a little bit better ?
