Start living life to the fullest by learning how to not take the little things for granted. You know, that 'stop & smell the rose', that's what I'm talking about. There are so many moments that are easily overlooked & the potential to optimise every day is there, you just have to know where to look for it. I've put together some easy ways to gain more satisfaction, seize the moment & take advantages of easy pleasures.
Stretch In The Mornings
Mornings can be the most hectic part of the day & people often don't take a moment to realise how much of a blessing it is to wake up with all the exciting potentials that await them. Instead of rushing out of bed, open your eyes & do some simple stretches. Start with your legs, then work your way up. Fresh off with a deep breath & start the day off on the right foot.
Stop For Coffee & Talk To The Person Next To You
If you make a coffee pit stop throughout your day at some point, it's likely you've routinely shuttled in & out with your coffee in hand on autopilot. Instead of rushing to your next destination, whether it be in the office or elsewhere, take advantage of the moment & strike up a conversation with the person behind you in line. Making that connection will leave you feeling great for the rest of the day.
Weather providing of course, I try & get outside everyday. Whether you live in a big city or a small rural town, there's inspiration all around you. We could always use a little more inspiration throughout our days so go crazy & get snapping at your surroundings. Once you get home, revisit the photos you took. You might surprised by the moments you've captured throughout the day.
Enjoy A Sweet Snack Break With A Work Friend
Steaming ahead all day long can be exhausting & you deserve a break between all your hard work. Stop what you're doing & encourage a friend to do the same. Go for coffee & cake or get outside for a walk.
