If you have a busy day ahead of you, it’s smart to prepare thoroughly beforehand. This allows the day to run smoothly, while you remain feeling comfortable and completely confident. To slay the day, there are a few things you can do before you leave the house (and afterward too). Let’s take an in-depth look at what they are so you can begin 2018 the right way while stepping closer towards your goals!
Hi my loves! I hope you all are having a wonderful start to a New Year. I know this is the time many are ambitiously working on new goals. As a kid, I would dread January. But as an adult, I’ve grown to love how this month feels like a fresh start. Last night, I was thinking about the goals and dreams I have for 2018. The biggest point that stood out was, how important it is to invest in one’s self.
So what does that mean?
You may call us a little eager, but now is the perfect time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolution. Think back to the last three years and what you promised yourself you would do more of. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred we focus on improving our physical health. But what if this year you focus on your mental wellbeing? What if your new resolution is to find ways to improve your mind and thoughts, or find a way to better manage stress and your mental health.
Emotional wellbeing is a priority everyone shares or at least one we should share. Just look at the stats. 25% of people will suffer from some sort of mental health issue at some point in their life. Twenty-five percent. One in four. The odds are too high to ignore this part of our happiness and wellbeing.
Making your mind the priority next year isn’t just reserved for those that are battling depression, bipolar, cyclothymia, anxiety and everything else that falls within this bell curve. That’s because emotional wellbeing also affects day to day life such as stress, decisions, social events, how we connect with others, the kind of confidence we uphold.
So, if you find your head is subtly nodding as you read this, then here are our top tips on how to make your mental health the absolute priority going into 2018:
I am writing this while laying on my hardwood floors drinking my second cup of coffee after spending two hours doing accounting and the morning deep cleaning the apartment. Looking through other drafted articles I had ready to go for this Friday, I realized let’s just begin with where I am today… Adulting is tough, man, but I rather learn that now.
Hi my loves!
I cannot believe it is September already. This Summer went so fast, I blinked and it is almost over! We still have a few more weeks before it is officially Fall (aka my favorite season). This year though, I am kind of sad Summer is ending. I actually had a really nice relaxing Summer. I didn’t travel or do much of anything, but it was a welcomed treat to stay still. I mentioned in an earlier post this week, last summer I moved three times! Which I guess is why staying still and not running around too much is a dream! Keep reading why.
I wanted to write this article after reading a fellow blogger’s real life experience. It made me laugh so hard and I could relate to every piece. Just like every industry, there is a lot the goes on behind the scenes that you probably wouldn’t even think about. It may shock you how ridiculously REAL it gets being a blogger. After all, we are just humans. Have a look!
There’s one thing I do consistently that has proven to be the trick to success. I’ve done this thing every single day for 10 years. I’ve heard other successful leaders vouch for the practice, and deemed it as their reason for success as well. The one trick you need to be successful is…
Wow, that is a loaded title!! I mean dang, but this idea and topic came from the conversation that formed under the article, ‘ 5 Defeating Actions Keeping You From Success‘. What a powerful conversation that was and a great way to bring the community together. Thank you to everyone who shared!
I noticed a majority of comments touched on the idea of not taking on other people’s problems. The messages ranged from having a hard time with this idea to completely seeing how it has changed lives, and others spoke about how they really want to implement this idea into their current life. I found this fascinating and was really moved by each one.
Whether we realize it or not, we often get in our own way of success. Sometimes it is a habit we formed over the years, other times it is a mindset we inherited from our environment. Here are five defeating actions keeping you from success.
