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 #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.
