My 7 Favorite Ways to Recharge My Energy Levels

At some point in our lives, we are all drained. We all need that little break, that little breathe in and out and some cold water to flush out the stress from our mind.

Below I’ve listed my favorite ways that I use to recharge my energy levels after a long day or week.

1) Exercise – I am a fitness freak and if I don’t workout for even a day, I feel unhealthy and my body and mind begins to some what crumble. I know it’s weird but if you’re a fitness freak too, you’ll understand what I’m saying. 

2) Eat a dessert –Desserts are love and even though I’m on a diet, eating some sweet is the only way I can sometimes forget about my stressful day and start a new and fresh one. Eating desserts gives me inspiration and though I feel guilty after eating it, I try to ignore that feeling and just be happy.

3) Journal – If nothing works, what I do is sit down with my colored pens and washi tapes and just doodle or write something in my journal. It really helps me to forget whatever tension I have on my mind. It’s kind of like a distraction and I really enjoy journaling. 

4) Dance –This is one of my favorite ways to recharge myself. I love dancing and at the same time sweating it out. Just grooving to my favorite music makes me happy and enthusiastic. Just a little note, I actually had dreams of becoming a dancer but…eventually, I became an author haha.

5) No phones –Just putting aside my phone for a day is such a relief. I get a little whacky if I don’t check my phone often but just to be on the safe side, I grab my gameboy or playstation and just play some games to pass my time and forget the worries of this world. 

6) Reading –Another great way I use to recharge my mind. Reading takes me to a whole other world and sometimes I’m happy to forget about this one. Currently, I’m reading Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix. 

7) Planning –At first, I thought this wouldn’t work, but when I started planning what I had to do the next day and the day after, my life got a whole lot of easier and some of the stress that I had actually left me for good. A kind of energy surged inside me the next day and I actually did what I wrote/planned I would do. 

So guys, these are some of my ways which I use to recharge myself after a long hard day. I hope you will apply these ways to your life as well if you still haven’t and I wish you all the best for everything!

I wonder what your way of recharging is? Let me know in the comments!

9 Things I Like About Myself

Everyone loves a thing or two about themselves. And they feel proud about it. It’s also good that you know what you like about yourself because then your true nature will automatically shine. The more you know about yourself, the more confident you will be.

There are so many people out there that have no idea what they like about themselves. They have a hard time figuring out and that’s sad because you are the only one who knows better about you. No one can tell you what you like about yourself and what you don’t. It’s up to to choose and if you still haven’t, then I suggest that after reading this post, you put down your phone or laptop, close your eyes and just think about this topic.

Ask yourself, “What do I like about myself?”

And if the answers don’t come to you even then, then God help you, kid.

Anyway, here are 5 things I like about myself :-

  1. I’m not Selfish
  2. I’m soft and kind (especially to old people)
  3. I’m passionate about the things I love
  4. I’m always thirsty to learn new things and to gain more beneficial knowledge
  5. I’ve a strong heart
  6. I try to be as positive as I can be
  7. I always smile even though I go through a lot
  8. I have a high pain tolerance
  9. Lastly, I’m kind of innocent which puts me in trouble from time to time

Try to get to know yourself because that’s what will shape you to become a better and confident person.

I hope you find your way and I wish you all the best.

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

My Ideal Morning Routine

So, my morning routine is a bummer. It’s not that great and its not a routine either. I just go with the flow and do what I feel like. Nonetheless, let me just tell you what I really do.

Step 1) I wake up (duh)

Step 2) I drink some water

Step 3) I go to bathroom

Step 4) I pee

Step 5) then brush my teeth

Step 6) Then drink lemon water

Step 7) Write a blogor sometimes practice a dance routine

Step 8) Then I eat or drink something (just a small snack like bread jam or just coffee)

Step 9) I watch T.V for a while (nowadays it’s just Netflix)

Step 10) And I get back to my laptop to write my novel.

See, Isn’t my morning routine simple? Being honest, I actually want to change my lifestyle because believe it or not, I wake up at 10 am or 11. It’s because I don’t have to go to University and stuff and I’m fine with that but still…But I’m not able to wake up at 7 or 8 because by the time I sleep at night, it’s around 2:30 am to 3.

Yeah, my routines aren’t really routines and they suck but now I’m stuck with it. So.

Anyway, what is your morning routine? I would love to know to get some inspiration and motivation to change myself haha.

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

There are just so many places I wish to travel! If I had the money right now, I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to book a flight to New York or South Korea.

Below I’ve listed a few places that I wish to travel before I get old. I won’t list the reasons because you actually don’t need a specific reason to see the world.

  • Japan
  • Hong Kong
  • Singapore
  • Malaysia

My 9 Favorite Book Characters

I love characters that I can sympathize and sometimes empathize with. I haven’t read many books in these 19 years but I will list down the ones I know and felt an attachment to.

  1. Cedric Diggory – Harry Potter – For some reason, I like Cedric very much. It might be because Robert Pattinson was Cedric in the movie…
  • Kaz Brekker – Six of Crows – Kaz is a cold but cool character which I fell in love with instantly.
  • Ginny Weasley – Harry Potter – I like her because she is this quiet yet bold girl who isn’t just intelligent but optimistic and caring too.
  • Hercule Poirot – Agatha Christie books – I always imagine Pierce Brosnan as being this detective because of the given features and manners. But I like the way Hercule Poirot’s mind works. It’s just super amusing.
  • Willy Wonka – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Tbh, Willy Wonka has been my favorite character since I was, what? 10? I don’t know why I like him, but I just do. He’s quirky, funny and he has quite an odd mind, don’t you think?
  • Edward Cullen – Twilight- Okay, I know many (most) of you all don’t like Edward Cullen, but guys, he’s a Romantic Vampire! He’s nice, caring, (slightly possessive) but once he falls in love with you, he won’t ever let you go. Isn’t that what every girl wishes for? I see no wrong in loving Edward Cullen.
  • Matilda – Matilda – And just like Willy Wonka, I have loved Matilda since forever. She is a powerful, clever and rebellious kid and she is basically like a role model to the other little kids who think they are too weak to fight.
  • Greg Heffley – Diary of a Wimpy Kid – All I have to say is that this kid is the funniest character I have ever bumped into.
  • Sherlock Holmes – Sherlock Holmes – I’m sure I don’t need to tell you why I like Sherlock Holmes. Everyone loves Sherlock, don’t they? I can’t understand his mind at all…How does he even notice such trivial and intricate things? How can he solve such mind-boggling cases with a snap of his fingers? Nope…I can’t believe him. He’s like another super human to me.

For now, these are my favorite characters. I am trying to read more books and let’s see if I’ll fall in love with the characters or not.

By the way, what are your favorite characters? Do comment to let me know!

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

7 Travel Tips You Need To Learn Now

Travelling is fun and also good for the health. When you’re sad or stressed out, the best thing to do is just book a ticket to your favorite destination and pack your bags because nothing is more beautiful than seeing a different view and connecting with diverse cultures and lifestyles.

So, to make your trip memorable from the beginning till the end, let me tell you seven travel tips that’ll make your trip composed and hasslefree.

1) Pack light – The heavier your bag gets, the more you’ll regret adding unncessary stuff in it. Hold back and take only what you think you’ll need. And no, you don’t need that big bag of assorted chocolates or that heavily studded denim jacket.

2) Make a list – Make a list of things you want to see, or delicacies you want to try. You can’t expect to find free Wi-fi everywhere you go. A list will make things easier for you.

3) Have patience – When you’re travelling, no matter how careful you are, bad things happen. Like for one, you missed your train, or your credit card isn’t working, or someone stole your backpack. But don’t fret, take a deep breath and think with a calm mind what you have to do next. “Anxiousness can lead to further disasters.” Travelling is all about patience.

4) Make extra copies of your passport and other important documents – Stuff them deep inside your bag or suitcase, just in case.

5) Always keep your phone charged and carry a powerbank – Powerbanks have made our life so much facile. Travelling drains the batteries quickly. But of course, don’t forget to charge your powerbank as well.

6) Carry a first aid kit – It’s a must. It can be small, but it’s a must.

7) Stay hydrated – Wherever you are, always carry a water bottle with you. Staying hydrated keeps your body active and mind focused. Keep taking small sips from time to time. Most importantly, keeping yourself hydrated will help you fight off that jet-lag!

I hope you guys use this beneficial tips the next time you’re travelling. And if you already know them, then kudos to you. But if you didn’t, then you’re welcome.

Travel safe!

11 Writing Tips That Will Make You A Better Writer

A good writer listens to others; they take each other’s advice, they lock their pride and they humbly reach out for help. Yes, we have ego, we hate suggestions and we stress over petty things and we get annoyed easily.
But, sixty percent of the writers are pretty good at taking good advice and implementing them.

Anyway, my point is, if you want to be a good writer, you don’t need to listen to others. In fact, you can do it yourself. Let me give you a few tips that’ll help you become a better writer (if you’re too shy or too narcissistic to take help of others) P.S. I’m talking about the majority of writers including me, so don’t hate me.

  • 1) 
  • Choose a book title that will not only grab the reader’s attention but will make them feel something. It should make the reader confuse, or sad, or happy!
  • 2) This is the most important point of all. Organize your ideas before you begin writing. I regret not using this point the first time I began writing my novel…
  • 3) Add your own style and voice to your writing. Sure, you like Agatha Christie or Roald Dahl or John Green, but you can’t be them to make a book of your own. You need to be you so that people can recognize who you are and not just some copycat or wannabe.
  • 4) Make sure you stick to the point. Don’t write unnecessary stuff that’ll take a page or two without it making any sense or point.
  • 5) Use your words wisely. Keep sentences and paragraphs short but make it meaningful. Like Poetry.
  • 6) Read a lot. Read. Read. Read. That’s what everyone says, and they say that because it’s the truth. The more you read, the more your writing will improve.
  • 7) Reread and revise your writing. Don’t be lazy. Edit calmly and gingerly.
  • 8) Don’t be afraid of what people will think. They will think a million things but it’s up to you how you’ll make change their thinking. Forget the comments, who needs comments? You just want to get your story on the page, right? so do it and don’t stop.
  • 9) Always remember the six senses. Describe your characters, your actions and your surroundings well.
  • 10) Add a little humor. Yes, even if it’s a murder mystery or a horror book. No one likes a serious novel.
  • 11) Last but not the least, dude, enjoy what you write because if YOU don’t enjoy your story, then you can’t expect others to enjoy your story. Write scenes that make YOU happy, that make YOU sad, that make YOU angry.

Use these tips and I promise you, you’ll write a best-seller in no time. It takes time and patience, but you’ll get there. Eventually.

Peace neighbors,

10 Important life lessons love has taught us

Love. You get this excitement when you hear this word, right?
When you think of love, you think of commitment, patience and endurance.

Love is something precious, something that every individual is gifted with. That’s something, okay? If there was no love, then it’s obvious there wouldn’t have been you and me.

Being in love teaches you so many things. You go through tough trials together, you motivate and inspire each other, you help each other.

But sometimes, it just doesn’t work for some people. Love is something you have to experiment with. You cannot know it unless you investigate it yourself. There will be heart breaks, sleepless nights and gloomy days, but in the end, you’re left with a lesson to learn.

Let me list ten significant life lessons that love has taught us; be it a small point or a big.

1) Empathy – When you love someone, you don’t and can’t see them cry or get hurt. If they’re happy, you’re happy. If they’re sad, you feel sadder. So you do everything in your power you can to make them happy because you regard their feelings just as you would regard yours.

2) Decide – It’s up to you to choose if you love that person or not. The controller is in your hand, you’re the player. You have to choose to love them, or leave them. Listen to your heart.

3) Feel good – There’s a huge advantage in being in love and that’s feeling good whenever you’re with them. Nowadays, it’s what we all need. To feel good, to feel loved. If you feel good, then you’ve found the right person to spend your life with.

4) No expectations – When you love someone till the moon and the stars, you can’t expect them to love you the same way. You can’t expect to get an extra slice of cheesecake just because you love it. No, it’s all about giving and acting whether that person recognizes your sincerity or not.

5) Acceptance – Love means accepting their flaws, their mistakes, differences and the list goes on. If you truly love them, you need to accept them the way they are because isn’t that why you fell for them in the first place? There will be differences, but you just close your eyes and accept them.

6) Commitment – Love is not temporary. You can’t use it and then throw it away as if it was an torn, stinky sock. Love is not chemistry or infactuation. You need to promise to stay by each others side NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS!

7) Attention – The person drowning in true love never gets bored of giving all their attention to that particular individual. They want to make them feel that they’re near them, watching, feeling, sensing and not just ignoring because you’ve done your job of confessing. It’s not a task, it’s just something you like to give.

8) Time – Love takes time to grow. You can’t presume someone will love you at first sight. No, you need patience and perserverance. You need to give it a little time for it to develop.

9) Selflessness – You make them your priority. You solve their problems first, you make them feel happy and cherished. Real love isn’t selfish.

10) Limitless – Love is unconditional. There’s no expectations or limits set. You just love them for they are. You don’t care about their background or their past. You just love them and that’s the beauty of it all.

P.S. Bonus tip, love also means letting go. If you truly love that person, then you won’t chain them up in your room or tie a rope around their waist. You’ll let them go, you’ll set them free and if they come back to you, then I guarantee that that’s true love. But if they don’t, then it was never meant to be.

“Love is freedom and deliverance not possession or obsession.”
