Are you still happy? I asked. She just stared at me blankly, as if waiting for me to answer my own question. We both knew it was over, we just couldn’t admit it. But secretly I was hoping she would lie, and then we can pretend everything’s ok again.
It’s been 10 days since I started my journey to self-improvement. #Project365 has been successful so far, but yesterday I missed one post on this blog. NO, I didn’t miss it on purpose nor did I procrastinate. I have a very good reason. I normally stick to my routine but yesterday was an exception.
It’s 10:30pm and I just got back got home. With only 2 hours of sleep, I could barely come up with a decent paragraph for this post. I’m fighting the urge to reach for more caffeine. I initially thought that working longer hours will get all my task list completed, but, to be honest, I feel defeated. Your body can only take so much and no matter how you force yourself to be productive, your mind and system need to recuperate. Here’s the lesson I learned, it is possible to get more done in a day without feeling overwhelmed. Here are some tips:
- Be grateful. Sometimes it’s easier to focus on what we don’t have, rather than what we already have. Take a time out and remember all of the things to be thankful for that many of us take for granted. You’re alive today, that’s more than enough reason to be grateful.
- Smile and say “Thank You” as often as you could. When someone holds a door for you or when the lady at the coffee shop serves your drink – just say thank you and smile. Do it always and you’ll make that person’s day a little bit better.
It’s been a week since I started #Project365. I can’t believe I have written 7 blog post in a row, and never missed out on my daily exercise (pat myself on the back). I can’t even finish one post in two months before this project happened.
You see, the main purpose of doing this project is to motivate me and you to do and create something each day. But sometimes sticking with a goal is never easy. No matter how hard you try to change something in your lives or habits, there will come a time that you will get side-tracked. Life sometimes gets in the way and disrupt your goals. Remember that new year’s resolution you created? Did you complete it? I know I didn’t. So if you’re like me and you find yourself easily distracted and out of focus then read on.
Magandang Umaga! (Good morning)
Are you ready for the day ahead? Not yet? Still sleepy eh.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a morning person or not, we all start our day at some point. And we all start it differently. I usually have problems sticking with my daily habits because I don’t follow a morning routine. So I listed some hacks that will help start my day right. Hopefully, this will help you too, to get a little more productive, creative and happier person for the entire day. Here’s my Top 5 Morning Routine to Boost Up Your Day:
Do you know what successful people have in common? It’s reading. They read, a lot.
Rich people like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Oprah Winfrey – all of them practice the habit of reading. Even Warren Buffett said that the key to success is a stack of books – “Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”
Last week I read something on Facebook. It’s about a lady passenger expressing her dismay (more of a rant actually) on a guy who refuses to give up his seat for her. I just silently watched as comments poured in. Different opinions were thrown out. It was quite (
funny) entertaining and it got viral, but amidst that a question haunts us all – is chivalry dead?
It’s the weekend again. For most of us, this means it’s time to unwind and relax. I usually just do that, I just lay on the bed and pretend I’m a carrot. But I think it’s time to put my weekends to better use and so should you. They say that how you spend your weekends can define the outcome of your entire week. So we need activities that will rejuvenate, rather than exhaust or disappoint us. We need to feel a sense of accomplishment even on Sundays so that we’ll be motivated to tackle the next challenge which is the dreadful Monday.
Have you heard of P90x? If you haven’t yet then don’t research about it – unless you’re really interested in getting into some serious shit. This post is about that, it’s an exercise and I hate it. If you despise exercise too then just don’t bother reading the rest of this post. But if you’re already into deep with your relationship with food & you’d like to get fitter and healthier then stay on brother/sister.
