With our busy days getting more and more crowded everyday, it’s easy to get sucked into the “morning, afternoon, evening–repeat” routine. During these days, we often cross many things off of our ‘to-do’ lists. But at the end of a busy day, what have you actually accomplished? Does completing these tasks make you feel more accomplished or more successful? Or does completing that list leave you simply tired and run-down?
What if you took a chance on a change? How might you feel at the end of the day if you threw your list to the side and simply focused on yourself?
Start slowly, choosing one thing to take off of your list. Replace it instead with a restful evening or a silly conversation with some friends. Feeling a bit more refreshed? Replace another chore with something that rejuvenates you. After a week of swapping energy-draining chores with those that lift you higher, notice how you feel. Be aware of how you smile and the way you interact with those around you. Are you feeling lighter, happier, freer?
Take a chance on a change. Take a chance on you!
