    10 ways to relax this weekend

    10 ways to relax this weekend

    When was the last time you took a break? Not a vacation but a break from your regular routine. Here are 10 ways to unwind and enjoy your weekend:

     

    “There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Gandhi

    Read a new book

    Walk into your local library, grab the first book you see and sit down or simply purchase a book online and commit to finishing it this weekend.

     Be offline

    Turn off technology or unplug from your phone for at least 24 hours.

    Go for a walk

    Going for a hike or a walk can be a perfect way to get some exercise while enjoying the serenity of the outdoors.

    Spend time with family and friends

    You could take a small road trip to the lake or simply go out for a meal. Being surrounded by loved ones can be rejuvenating.

    Sleep-in

    Foster the art of doing almost nothing. Just lie in bed and enjoy the moments.

    Create something

    Let your imagination be your guide. Create art, crafts, words, photos, movies, or stories with no deadlines.

    Cook a meal

    Often meals made during the week are rushed due to time constraints. This weekend treat yourself to a home made 3 course meal with your favorite bottle of wine.

    Plant something

    Here are tips for staring a herb garden. 

    Declutter your space

    Get most of your cleaning, jobs, and errands done during the week. Resist over-scheduling your weekend by leaving pockets of time to unwind. The less you schedule, the more you can go with the flow.

    5 steps to achieve your goals

    5 steps to achieve your goals

    Whatever it is YOUR heart desires, you can achieve it by working hard and changing your mindset and energy to match your dreams. Here are five steps to follow to achieve any goal:

    Step 1:

    What do you want to achieve? Think about what you’re putting off for the “right moment.” What holds you back? What are you afraid of? Write down the worst things that might happen if you fail.

    Step 2:

    Now that you have a clear vision it’s time to create SMART objectives:

     

    Write down how long you think it will take, how many hours each day you will need to set aside to make it happen and what will the financial commitment be. What do you need to do every day to reach these objectives.

    Step 3:

    Get Organized and make an action plan - Write down the steps you will follow that will get you to your goal. This will help ensure you don’t miss any important steps. Think of this as creating mini-goals, breaking bigger objectives into smaller steps, until you have “bite-sized” chunks.

    Step 4:

    Be consistent. It’s important to focus on and take responsibility for the process, not the potential results. When you focus on the process , you will be a lot more relaxed and prone to continue than if you stare yourself blind on the potential results that never come as quickly as you want to and puts you on an emotional roller coaster from day to day.

    Step 5:

    Take accountability and accept feedback and use it to improve. Remember, it’s important to find and do what you love or like to do.

    Real success doesn’t come from the outside but from within. There is no shortcuts. Taking greater personal accountability is the key to succeeding in everything you do.
