Self – love and mindset are so important and require daily attention. Recently I have started doing a few new habits that have really helped me become happier, calmer and appreciate myself more.
This is something I’ve started recently since every successful person ever seems to recommend it. At first, I thought it sounded a bit woo-woo but it’s actually a really good way to relax and learn how to be more mindful. I use the app Headspace which I really enjoy because there’s a whole library of meditations for different things including self-esteem, motivation and productivity. Also, students can get a headspace subscription and Spotify premium for £4.99 a month (click here for more info). I’ve got you covered! 😉
Journalling is one of the best ways to sort your thoughts out and reflect. There’s also so many different types, every evening I sit and write about my day, things that have happened, my thoughts and feelings. It’s the perfect way to get everything out of your mind before going to bed. I also write two pages in the morning about whatever comes to mind, this is called morning pages, you’re actually supposed to write three pages but I only do two because ain’t nobody got time for that! (you can watch this video by Lavendaire to find out more about morning pages). I also have a list of prompts that I use that are things like ‘Where do you want to be in five years?’ & ‘What does your ideal day look like?’ etc.
Let me know if you do any of these and what you do to stay happy in the comments.
