5 Tips On How You Can Change Your Life!

1. Wake up early:

Waking up early gives you a chance to be productive while everyone else is asleep. It gives your mind the boost of creativity it needs, it gives you more time to plan out things and waking up early means that you’re serious about your work/business/job/career. It’s not an easy task to wake up early but those who do, they always climb the ladder of success.

2. Look Good:

Yes, this may sound strange but taking your time to look good will help raise your self-confidence, motivate you, and will trigger your mind into thinking that today is an important day; a day you shouldn’t miss out on.

3. Make time for yourself:

I believe this is the most important aspect of our lives as we get so busy with our daily life/work that we forget to make time for ourselves. Selfcare is truly important if we want to reach our goals and fulfill our dreams. We must take at least 10 minutes every day to journal, to smile, to do something that makes us happy and you will soon see a change in your life because you’re not just working your butt off but you’re rewarding yourself for it as well.

4. Make time for workouts:

I am a fitness freak and if I don’t work out even for a day, my body literally breaks down and I feel stressed, bloated, and unhealthy. As a result, I am unable to work properly and I tend to get a lot of writer’s block (apparently, I always have to resort to caffeine for that which is very unhealthy) So, get your body moving; be it for a walk, jog, or just going for grocery shopping. Do not be lazy because a moving body gives you a productive mind. Working out is beneficial for your body and not only will it make you look better but feel better too.

5. Identify Your Goals:

This is another crucial step you must take every single day. Knowing your goals and dreams is significant if you want to see successful results. You need to plan your day, week, month, and year accordingly, you need to adjust your lives and you also need to tend to your daily needs without making others frown. How are you going to do that? by planning and by having a strong and positive mindset. You can’t just break down because you chose this path and you must reach your destination. How long will you stay in a hotel or Airbnb? Not long right? Think of your life that way and pursue your goals. Recall why you’re doing what you’re doing and trust me, you will be in charge of your mind, not the opposite.

I hope you will use these 5 tips daily in your life and won’t give up because giving up means you’re losing the opportunity to make a name for yourself, to stand out from the crowd, and to make people realize that they can’t just look down upon you. So what’s it gonna be? wake up early and work? or sleep and watch your dreams fade away?

It’s your choice.

World Health Day – Let’s All Become Healthier!

This year’s World Health Day’s tagline is to support nurses and midwives. It’s celebrated to remind the world leaders and people like us of the important role the nurses and midwives play in keeping the world healthy. Moreover, WHO will launch the State of World’s Nursing Report 2020 for the first time ever.

Because of COVID-19, the nurses and midwives have been giving their all to keep us all in a healthy and safe environment. They are risking their lives just being out there and therefore, we must do everything in our power to acknowledge their hard work and appreciate their services to the wellbeing of the society.

How Do We Observe It?

  • Thank the nurses and midwives.
  • Invest in nursing and midwifery education and employment.
  • Listen and engage nurses and midwives in decision making and explore their ideas.
  • Spread awareness about the importance of healthcare workers.
  • Educate others, sign up for a charity run and check out WHO website for campaign materials.

How To Make Healthy Choices?

  • Eat a balanced and healthy diet.
  • Workout and drink more water.
  • Take some time to de-stress yourself; read a book, watch a movie, drink hot chocolate or just put on an eye mask and go to sleep.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking.
  • Consume less salt and sugar.
  • Get your vaccinations.
  • talk to someone if you’re feeling blue. This is the best time to call your friends and family!
  • Always wash and sanitize your hands before eating.

Although we are all self-quarantined, let’s not forget to stay healthy, avoid eating junk-food and be as active as possible. We are all in this together and if we follow the rules and stay safe–without unnecessarily going out–then we can end this pandemic quicker and people can get back to their repetitive lives.

Once again, a big round of applaud for all the nurses and the midwives!

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!

Letter Of Advice To My Last Year Self

Dear last year self…

I know that you have gone through a lot, but you held on. You were patient with whatever came your way and you stayed strong. Most of them can’t do what you did. You are such a brave and wise person and I’m so proud of you.

I just want to say that you keep doing what you’re best at and leave everything in God’s hands. God is the best of the planners and He won’t ever make you feel sad. He knows what’s good and bad for you. He knows everything.

Just be patient and keep hoping because that’s what you’re good at. I know it hurts and sometimes you just wish things went your way, but remember; good things comes to those who wait.

I love you for having a strong mind and heart and never forget your Creator. After all, you’re living for Him and only for Him. These worldly things are nothing but play and you must work hard to please your Loving Lord.

Pray for every small thing and never give up. Even if your Imaan gets low, don’t worry because the devil will sometimes whisper unimaginable things to you. You must fight back and repent to God. You musn’t let the devil play with your mind. I know you can do it. You’ve done it before.

Pray. Hope. Trust in God. Repeat.

From, Your 2019 Self.
