It’s so easy to get caught up in the flow of accomplishing tasks and getting things done. While constantly being productive is good, it’s important to have a good work life balance, so you can relax, too. We here at metro’s other woman® are big on having a healthy balance of success and fun in our lives. It’s important to work hard, but also equally as important to play hard. We want to provide you with 5 habits that will increase your quality of life. These 5 habits are things that each of our staff and most successful people implement into their lives. Here they are:
Schedule time for relaxing
If you don’t schedule time for relaxing, it will be put on the back burner and it might never happen. If you put it in your calendar and carve time to do nothing but relax, it’s much more likely to happen. Start scheduling time to sit and watch your favorite TV show, nap, or just sit and watch the sunset. You won’t regret it.
Journaling is one of the best processing outlets. It’s so relieving to get things out of paper. Whether you are an internal or external processor, journaling helps clarify your thoughts and feelings and in turn helps clear your brain and become more relaxed. It helps you know yourself better, reduce stress, and solve problems for effectively. You will feel much more relaxed once you write your thoughts down.
Meditation helps encourage a healthy lifestyle. It allows you to take time to clear your mind and to focus on breathing. Adding meditation to your routine reduces stress, improves concentration and increases your self-awareness.
Not only does going outside increase your happiness and peace, it also spurs weight loss, increases brain function, amps vitamin D, reduces stress and even helps you age more gracefully.
Make time for yourself
If you don’t already know what things you love to do in your spare time, now is the time to figure it out. Find a workout that you love, an art project that you want to work on, or friends you love hanging out with. Make time for you to relax and enjoy life and other people.
It’s so important to make time for things that make you happy, like your friends, family, travel and adventure. Following these steps will ensure that you live a more relaxed and happy life. You will never regret doing any of the above things. We wish you the best of luck as you embark on this journey of living a more relaxed life.
