Happy Monday Guys!
Last week I came to a realization that on my everyday life I don’t put myself as a priority. Usually my day looks like this – “Emails, Film, Shoot, Plan, Work, & More Working”. I noticed that because of that I got irritated easily & got stressed out all the time & everyday seems to be more stressful and more overwhelming. I am being 100% honest here, not everyday is amazing and easy, for me lately my days have been full of comparison and not about me, I am putting social media first than cleaning, reading, working out like what! YIKES – Yes, this is my job but sometimes it feels like I can’t put a stop to it. Another thing I realized was that I can hardly do things by myself because I don’t like being alone, and that is not the way I want to live life so I had to really put a stop to it and write down things I see myself doing and prioritizing before me and setting the record straight!
I want to share some of the things I’ve been doing and adjusting to my everyday life to you guys so maybe you can put some of these things in your routine. I know I am not alone in this, as a reminder it is really important to take a look at your life and point out what is important to you and make that a priority above anything else!
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.”
One thing I’ve been doing everyday is Journal. If you are not the type to be vocal about how you feel and much rather work things out on your own, definitely journal. Journal how you feel, journal ways to bring happiness in your everyday life, journal your prayers, journal your moods. Journaling has been a game changer.
Definitely do this in the morning, before grabbing the phone, checking your emails, checking your group chat. When you do that first before spending time with yourself, you will feel overwhelmed and out of place.
More Reading or listening to POSITIVE PODCASTS than grabbing your phone when you are bored. Why is it that when we are bored or have nothing to do, the first thing we do is grab our phones?? It is very alarming and instead of picking up your phone to scroll through IG at 4:00pm, how about going to the park with your favorite book or going to your balcony to draw while playing your favorite music? These are the little things that will bring joy to your day!
More spending time ALONE. When I shared with you guys that lately it has been more difficult for me to spend time alone is because whenever I want to do something I always ask people to do it with me because I don’t like being alone. But that is something I want to improve. I want to be able to go for a walk around my neighborhood by myself and not be “afraid” This is something I am definitely trying to improve on.
Make a MORNING & NIGHT routine! let’s be honest, everyday is definitely not the same. Yesterday me and Rudy were planning to spend the day inside and have a “Lazy Sunday” Around 1:00pm my sister called me to ask me if I wanted to go to the beach so the whole lazy Sunday went out the window – But one thing that doesn’t change is how you start your morning and how you end your day. Building a morning routine and night routine brings peace in my soul because it something I actually have control of.
Have personal Challenges. I am currently on a 2 week no sweets challenge and I can tell you, it has been the most difficult thing I’ve done in a while because it requires so much discipline but I can tell you that I love to see how it challenges me. You can start your fitness journey, Not go on social media for 3 hours or drink a gallon of water a day. You name it, As long as you are challenging yourself it will make your day more fun & it will give you a reason to wake up everyday.
Always make time for God. Jesus is my rock. whenever I don’t read the Bible or spend time with him, It feels like my world falling apart. Never forget to pray & read the Bible, to have a lone time with God it is very important because at the end of the day, everything is staying on this earth. & eternity is forever.
Have an amazing week guys and hopefully you will put some of the things I said here on the blog in practice! It’s okay to not have everything figured out and “perfect” just know that your time is coming and you have to be patient. Never put yourself second.
