6 Significant Changes You can Do to Refresh your Life and Routine

What is the first thing you think when you first wake up?

If one of your first thoughts are “What time is it? I’m getting late for work” you need to take a little break and refresh your routine.

Sometimes we are so busy living our lives and following our established routines that we do not stop and realize how the fact of making some changes in our lifestyles and incorporating new experiences can benefit our lifetime (and especially, our mood).

To avoid the situation of being stuck in a rut, here are some simple changes we can make to let benefits come with a big change:

1. Have a new adventure or exotic travel

Big changes include exotic getaways and new adventures, and our world is full of beautiful places waiting for us to be discovered and to create stories. You can probably think that this kind of plans requires a big amount of money, but reality is that some exotic destinations are pretty affordable as well.

Some travelers opt for visiting Asia destinations, because as Myanmar tours says: “This place remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. Those kind of destinations are good options for finding adventures  full of  rich cultural heritage.

2. Remodeling and decorating your space

When we are talking about changes, our environment is an important part of it. Regardless if you live alone, in a house, apartment, campus, etc. a simple movement of furniture or getting new home appliances to decorate and improve your space.

You probably can’t imagine how a small decoration or a simple furniture movement can make an impact in your life and mood. The guys of Carpet Installation Austin, TX say that a quality flooring and home decoration gives any home a more beautiful and lively look so, you better start changes! There are many low-cost redecorating ideas to turn your space into a healing home.

 3. Give yourself a makeover

This might sound expensive for you, but there are many ways you can give yourself a makeover and stay on a budget.

Have you heard the quote “Looking good and feeling fine”? That’s exactly what you need to project, you can just go simple and change your hairstyle or color, or maybe go shopping and get a new outfit.

4. Start writing

Writing is one of the best ways to purge emotions and liberate our mind. Certainly, there are many benefits of writing that will give you more than a reason to start doing it. Besides it is a fun way to maintain and expand your vocabulary, writing (regardless the way) let things that are stressing you out to leave, so anxiety levels decrease and you will enter in a relaxed mood.

It is easy to get a pen and paper or to start a blog, and if you think you might need to get a little more inspiration or maybe help on grammar, take support with writing-enhancement platforms like Grammarly or with preparing speech ideas online

5. Use music as a power

Music is life and certainly making some activities accomplished with music can improve your mood and development. You can have a different playlist for each activity you have, and there are many sites that offer pre-established playlist regarding your mood like Spotify or this simple mp3 music downloader that shows you the best apps for your mobile device without any trouble.

Nowadays it is almost impossible not to have music access, there are people walking around not alone but with their earphones, you may pass cars on the road with its passengers happily singing out on a road trip? Just fun and joy. Try new rhythms, and remember that behind every great song there is a big story.

6. Enjoy your hobbies

To be happy you need to always follow what your passion and likeness are. If you like yoga, take your time for that activity and enjoy the moment! Create a specific area for yoga and meditation, it could be an especial room in your house or a space in your backyard where you and your yoga mat fit.

If you like online activities like movies, video games, music set and specific area of your house as well! We know your consoles, screens and games need their own space so take a time decorating and adapting furniture but always making it comfortable (yes, you can have the best gaming desk, your bed or even a sofa).

Join a new group, meet people, practice new activities and find what makes you happy every time.

You need to always make changes that can refresh your habits for the better. Set new goals and get them; having a target to work towards keeps you motivated and helps prevent you from just drifting along and falling into a rut.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
