Especially thinking about yourself and the world.And sometimes just not thinking, but moving, “to oppose the sentences”. Indeed, We consist of body and mind. They must both be fed and practiced in order to be able to live well.
Still, if you have to choose then the mind is more important.Just look at someone like Stephen Hawking. Few walks of the body but great travels of the mind.
Listen to yourself, constantly.So far, that has been the best thread for me and has ensured a healthy balance between body and mind.
Every day hiking.In nature at preferences and put your gaze at infinity (so don’t look down). Tip: Take a dog that forces you to go out every day.
Whatever pressure we have, we can all use some time to improve our lives.
However, some people soon feel overwhelmed when they start an interesting book or an extensive course.
Others had intended to be more sports and noticed a few weeks later that nothing has come of the house.
Whatever good intentions we had, there’s just not enough drive to carry out the huge tasks we’ve imposed ourselves on.
That’s why it’s often a much better idea to give yourself just very small tasks that help you in the course of time.
Because such small goals become habits and habits become second nature.Before you know it, you have improved yourself with nothing more than a few minutes per day.
Many experts recommend taking ten to fifteen minutes daily to improve yourself or your life.
This can take any form.Below you can find seven suggestions that you might find useful, or at least help you think of your own ideas.
1.Learn or read something new
Learning something new every day is a great goal, and very easy to do.Newsletters, podcasts, websites and groups are ready to provide you with knowledge.
Tip: I also love services like Those Of Getabstract: A library of more than 15,000 summaries of the best non-fiction books, which you can read or listen to on a dozen minutes.This way I read the essence of 7 books per week!
2.Take a mini-sport break
Did you know that you can burn a few hundred calories in just ten minutes?There are mini workouts on the internet (like from Sparkpeople) to find that help you to do it.
But taking these active breaks has many more benefits.They help you to keep yourself healthy, increase your energy, support your sleep cycle, relieve stress and tension and improve your mood, all in just ten to fifteen minutes a day.
One of the best things you can do for yourself is just slow down and breathe.That’s essentially what meditation is: the chance to soothe your mind, concentrate on your breathing, and find the peace in yourself.
Take a few minutes and meditate every time you feel stressed, or as a regular routine in the morning.
4.Speak with a friend or acquaintance
Much of our communication has become dependent on technology that hides us behind a computer screen.Instead, take ten minutes to speak face to face or over the phone.
Connect to who you’re fond of and make it a priority.Not only do you feel great afterwards, but it will also reinforce your relationship with that person.
5.Write what you think
I don’t mean a professional article, just write something for yourself, whether it’s shared or private. Talk about something you’re passionate about, something you enjoy.
Write a letter that you never want to send, to read back later.Write a poem or a story. Write about what bothers you, or what makes you laugh. Just write something.
6.Go for a Walk
Sometimes a little fresh air is all you really need to improve your day.Walking once every day, even a little bit, can help to purify your mind and eliminate stress.
It gives you the chance to organize your thoughts, or solve a problem.What’s more, it’s just a pleasant activity that doesn’t charge your body (for most of them anyway). Try to use one of your breaks at work for a short walk, and see what difference it makes.
Only ten minutes per day can make a lot of difference in a room, whatever space it is. Even if it is disastrous today, clearing up in small pieces will have effect in the coming days.It will improve your mood.
Bonustip: Do something you love to do
Ultimately, it comes down to doing something you love.Whatever it is, it might be the best way to self improvement. Even if it is only ten to fifteen minutes per day.
