Work will always be there. It will be there when you leave the office and will still be there when you get back. Don’t be busy creating a life that you actually forget to live it. So we are brining you a few ways that you probably know, but it will be a helpful reminder for you to not forget to live your life today..
1. Take your time to eat!
Don’t grab that sandwich in the car, or eat your salad while your face is stuck in a computer screen. Food is a great daily opportunity to experience life’s simple joys. It is one of the few things that can stimulate all your senses at once. Just don’t forget to enjoy quality food; low-fat, high-fiber, carbohydrate-rich meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables. They will soothe you without sapping your energy and give you the nutrients you need to boost your immune system.
2. Take your time to connect!
Withdrawal from a social life because you are busy at work or stressed with all the tasks you have can be a temporary solution, but it tends to make for a somewhat lonely and limited existence. Opening up to a wider space of awareness and connection, can make your life a lot less cluttery and claustrophobic. Connecting with friends, family, god, or yourself.. Each and every connection is important and has a role in keeping you emotionally stable when you’re about to fall apart. So do find time to hang out with friends, attend family gathering, to pray or meditate, and to just be with yourself.
3. Take your time to see the world!
Between budgets and busy schedules, it’s not easy to set aside time and plan a getaway. But getting away, even for a short period, can do wonders for your well-being. Traveling is a good method to release stress because it gets you away from your problems. Just planning a vacation keeps your mind off things that can stress you out. Dreaming about where you’re going to go and what you will do when you get there can take your mind off pressing issues that cause sleeplessness, high blood pressure, and tension. Stress is like vertically climbing a mountain with boulders strapped on your back. Ultimately, when you unwind, you free yourself of the load on your back. With your mind off the obstacles, your attention gets focused on reaching your objectives.
4. Take your time to be wrong!
Take your time to pause every now and then. To re-assess your life decisions and alter your life paths if you think it is necessary. Don’t think it is too late to take a career shift if you don’t feel happy with what you’re doing. Do quit that job if you don’t feel it is getting you where you really want to be. Yes, you can think you are too old or too successful to change now. But remember, if you start today, you will reach your dream way sooner than if you start in 5 years (or if you don’t start at all).
5. Most importantly, take your time..
Apologize if you’re wrong, change your mind, say no if you don’t want to do something, say yes if you do.. Do whatever you feel will make you happier, even if that’s not what logic tells you. Just remember that there are a million habits that, when applied on a daily basis, can really transform the way you live, in a positive way.
