Life Lesson #6

Be creative for you.

In a world set up for result we often forget that there are some things we can do without seeking validation through it. Creativity is one of those things you really should only be doing for you. So try to take a moment every now and then to be creative with no ulterior motive then to simply be creative.

It’s good for you and it’s something fun.

You’d be surprised how creativity can help you work through things you didn’t even know where bugging you. I call this the process of de-cluttering your soul. Being creative de-clutters your soul.

Life Lesson #15

Drink a glass of water the moment you wake up.

While sleeping your body goes 6 plus hours without being rehydrated and it’s bad for you. So start your day with a glass of water.

This works in your health’s favour and it wakes you up. It jumpstarts your metabolism which will get you ready for that breakfast you need to eat and it gives you a reason to get out of bed.

Life lesson #14

Go outside as often as possible.

Going outside is not the strong point of the people on earth right now – after all the WiFi is inside.

But going outside is actually good for you. It helps keep your head clear and I’m certain it’s good for your soul, even if all you’re doing is sitting outside for five minutes.

Go outside as much as possible. Breathe in the fresh air. Feel the sun on your face. Let grass tickle your feet.

 

Just take a moment to go outside everyday – as much as possible.

Life lesson #13

Sleeping in is not going to kill you.

I know a lot of people who push themselves until they have burn outs or panic attacks – because they fear either deadlines or judgement.

If this is you then my life lesson to you today is: one day of sleeping in is not going to be the end of your life.

If you’ve been working to 12 pm every night and then gotten up at 6am every morning then you are starving your body of the sleep it needs. One morning of sleeping in is probably good for you in this case. You need rest and missing a couple of hours from your day is not going to be the end of everything.

Sleep in and then forgive yourself for it.

Life lesson #12

When you are cold go put on a jacket and shoes.

 

This seems obvious advice but I want to point out that we as people have a tendency to ignore our needs. Especially if we think it’s minor.

My grandma gave me this advice actually. She says that the moment you feel cold you make sure you get warm again because otherwise you get sick – you don’t wait until you’re shivering and your nose is dripping snot.

I think this is great advice. Thank you grandma.

 

Life lesson #11

Don’t be afraid to get dirty.

There are some kinds of messes that are okay to get all over yourself.

For example at the end of a good day I normally have dirt on my feet, paint on my arms or pants, small handprints from little kids on my face and a smile on my lips.

These are the kinds of messes that I love to be covered in and I wish to tell you that it’s okay to not look perfectly clean if these are the sorts of things you’re covered in.

In fact I suggest you go search out days like that where you can get dirty and just enjoy it, instead of worrying about anything.

 

Life lesson #10

Before you simply pile food onto your plate remember to check how many people still need to get food.

This is just basic manners that I think is a good lesson to learn, especially if you’re an only child who’s not used to be restricted in this sense.

It’s good manners and quite frankly it keeps people happy because who wouldn’t be upset if someone else ate all the food before they even had a chance to get some?
I don’t know if this is the same everywhere but the specific foods I’ve experienced this should never happen with is:

Cheese, bacon, scrambled eggs and flapjacks.
