We tend to say the word busy most of the time. We tend to give our friends that answer when they ask us how we are doing, like busy is an emotion and not a word. There are times we use it as an excuse to delay certain tasks that we find unpleasant. However, you’re never too busy for a mere 10 minutes, which is all it will take to improve yourself just a tad bit every day. You can do yoga and meditate to release stress, track your not-so-healthy spending habits and even learn a new language. There are limitless possibilities. It is important to make for the more important things in life, such as continuous development of your mental, emotional and mental well-being. Below are some ways on which you can improve yourself in as little as 10 minutes or even less.
Take a Guilt-Free Nap
If the afternoon tends to drag you, skip the coffee and simply have at least a 10 minute guilt-free nap and you can dramatically improve your alertness, accuracy and clarity.
Take a Selfie for Yourself and Not to Share on Social Media
Take a simple selfie without filters or hashtags which you can appreciate and enjoy the stuffs that make you different from others and makes you uniquely you. After taking a selfie, write down at least three things that you like about yourself, place them on your mirror to boost your self-confidence when you’re down or struggling with a negative self-image.
It can be overwhelming to commit to a daily workout routing in a gym. It can be that it does not fit your schedule or there are other more important things you need to prioritize. What you can do instead is to try and download well-known workout apps and you can exercise while at home watching TV.
Do Some Yoga
Yoga can reduce your stress and anxiety levels. It will also help to improve your overall well-being. A study also shows that 20 per cent of individuals who do yoga are more likely to have a positive self-image.
Keep Track of What You’re Spending
It can feel a little guilty when you look at your bank account after a long weekend getaway with friends. Most of the times we tend to promise ourselves that we will save more and spend less on frivolous things. It can be a bit overwhelming to start tracking our everyday purchases to try to stay accountable. What you can do is to begin by tracking three of the major areas and focus on those.
Take the Time to Learn from Others
You can read a financial blog post a day from individuals who have gone through huge mistakes on money similar to what you are going through right now. You can ask for advice from those individuals from investing to insurance.
It is smart to have a budget and it is necessary to stay accountable. But make sure not to get too caught up in tracking your finances that you don’t indulge and live a little. Take a bit of a break from budgeting and splurge on little things like your favourite dessert or snack. Find a place that is not crowded and simply enjoy and cherish the moment of indulging yourself.
