So often we look at our lives and feel like we’re stuck in a rut doing the same things over and over again. It’s good to have a routine and know what you’re doing, but sometimes you need to have a little bit of a change to make life interesting. There’s lots of small changes you can make to make life better, but here’s my top favourites.
Decluttering your life is a massive stress reliever and it’s something I wish I did more often. Go through your clothes, books, DVD’s and everything else and donate to charity all the things you don’t use or need.
This is such a typical thing to say, but you’ll see a massive difference within yourself when you start exercising. The most important thing is to find something you enjoy, rather than what will make you work the hardest. I found that I enjoy swimming the most, but it might be something different for you. Explore the different options available and try different things.
Watch a comedy
Laughing is definitely the best way to feel better, so stick on a good comedy and laugh as much as you can. It’ll reduce your stress levels and if you watch it with friends, it’s another bonus to have people to enjoy it with.
Learn to manage your money
Money can really get me down when I’ve realised I’ve spent more than I should and it can be massively stressful. Get in the habit of being stricter with yourself and learn to manage your money to avoid getting stressed about it.
I’m absolutely addicted to my phone. I have to reply to messages straight away, I’ll watch loads of Netflix to avoid doing work and of course, scroll through Instagram to see what everyone else is up to. I’ve decided I need to give myself some rules to avoid being on my phone all the time. Things like turning it off, not going on it at a certain time in the evening and keeping it out of sight when I’m meant to be working. Time flies when you’re scrolling aimlessly through social media, but imagine what you could do with that time if you put your phone away.
