Lately I’ve been on a mission to come up with a few ways to lead a healthier lifestyle. Just a few simple things to make life a little more enjoyable and to really just be in the moment- you know?
So in light of this I have come up with 4 little lifestyle changes to help inspire those who would like to do the same!
1. Switch Off – Most of us these days suffer from mild anxiety and stress which contributes to so many of our ailments. I stress so much sometimes I start to feel ‘old’ and tired despite the many hours I may sleep, my mind is always switched on. I am challenging myself to switch off by at least 9pm every night. It may seem crazy but the life of a full time employee, blogger and all that’s in between means you’re always calculating ways to earn more money or create more content to keep yourself going, this can be so stressful! Switching off means putting my phone away, putting my notebook down and just enjoying my own company, the company of my fur babies and the company of someone I love.
2. Less tech more books – I spend 99% of my time on my computer or phone scrolling through various apps, articles and creating scenarios for new business ventures. When I am not on my devices I love parking in front of the TV catching up on my latest series and/or documentaries. I have always been a reader and just love the feeling of a book in between my hands, not a kindle (which I do not even own) a real life book. There is nothing better so I will definitely make an effort to read more!
3. More meaningful conversations – I crave meaningful conversations. Most of my conversations revolve around me telling people what it is I do and more often than not ‘pitching’ my latest venture. I want to challenge myself – and I’ve already begun this – to have more conversations that leave me thinking, contemplating and slightly more enriched. Its easier when you put down your phone and get off social media for the duration of the conversation. We will be surprised at how many members of our generation have discussions with their friends while scrolling their instagram feed at the same time.
4. Less Clutter – Being a neat freak I somehow manage to collect alot of stuff, I find I collect so many things. Whether its makeup, clothing, shoes or cute gadgets from Typo (It will be the death of me!) there’s always so much lying around. Clearing clutter can be somewhat therapeutic. So i’ll be spending alot more time cleaning out clutter and giving it to someone less fortunate.
