5 RANDOM, YET LIFE CHANGING TIPS
Keep a digital grocery store list in your Notes app on your cell phone. If you are not taking advantage of your notes section on your phone, you are missing out! Whenever I go to the grocery store, I edit the list so that I do not miss anything. There is nothing worse than forgetting something at the store and having to go back! Utilizing your notes section is a great way to make a tedious errand more enjoyable.
The One Minute Rule. I recently was listening to a podcast called Happier with Gretchen Rubin and was introduced to The One Minute Rule. The idea is to immediately do any task that comes up if it takes one minute or less to complete. For example: answer an e-mail, put a mug in the dishwasher, hang up your pants…and so on. It’s an easy rule to follow and helps build momentum in your life by completing easy and small tasks which produce long term results.
Call a loved one. Carving out time each week for your loved ones is so important. Although our lives can get busy and hectic, taking a breather and having a conversation with someone you love can relieve stress and put your priorities into perspective.
Sleep with your phone in another room. I talk about this a lot, and it has been such a game changer for unplugging and recharging at night. When you sleep with your phone in another room, you aren’t tempted to scroll through your news feeds late at night and get pulled into the social media vortex. By keeping your phone outside of your bedroom, you can truly live in the moment and unplug effectively.
Get up 15 minutes earlier. Your morning sets the tone for your entire day. By giving yourself 15 extra minutes, you will feel more in control, focused & eager to take on the day. You’ll also notice that the energy of having more time will keep you less frustrated and more relaxed.
