Finding time to explore options
This is the time to figure out how to do more of what you love. It’s like getting handed a clean slate and getting a do over. You must find time to explore your options.
By doing so you open yourself up to new possibilities. Feel like procrastinating? Ignore that feeling if you can.
What have you enjoyed in the past that you let go of? We all have that one thing that we used to do. So how can you revisit that idea?
Start with making a list of what made you happy. Did you do anything by yourself, with a loved one or with a friend? Think of one new thing that you would like to try.
Break up old routines
Are you going day by day by doing the same old things? If so, change that. Put a twist on what you normally do. Work out at night if you are typically a morning person.
Some of you work a day job, rush home to get dinner going or to catch up on household chores and/or spend time with a family. Then before you know it you are in bed drifting off. Only to wake up and do it again the next day.
Now is your chance to add value to your well-being. You get to decide what you can do for fun. Were you once an artist, a poet, a self-made chef, or a sports enthusiast?
The only way to break up old routines is by creating new ones. Take inventory of what you have to do daily. Now, see where you can include some time that allows you to doing more of what you love now.
Set a date for the fun stuff
You have had the chance to think about it. Now what will you do about it? Think about what you want your week to look like. Make time to do what you love with a family member, by yourself or with a friend.
Set a date on your calendar weekly to do these things. No need to wait for a special occasion. Your happiness is depending on you alone.
It all begins with valuing your time. It can be time well spent or time wasted. Why not make it memorable then?
