#SelfLoveClub Part 4

The list goes on. These are the things that I jot down when I read or when that A-ha moment strikes me. Share with me if you have any and I promise to feature them too!

1. Go to sleep when you’re tired
With all the devices and the never-ending things to do, we sleep at odd hours and feel crappy the next day. It is a vicious cycle. You know what to do. I don’t want to be a naggy mummy.

2. Stop snoozing your alarm
Not only it will make you feel more tired but also find that a lot of time has just slipped away and finally, you will be in a mad rush. It is the truth. You really get more done by getting up on time. I am not even saying earlier.

3. Make someone happy
Happy energy is contagious, and nothing beats this feeling. I am always giving out flowers for random reasons, try it sometime and tell me why.

4. Spend more time with yourself
Sorry to sound morbid but in the end, we are indeed alone six feet under. Time to learn how to make the most of it and stop feeling awkward.

5. Start journaling
I take this blog as my journal, and it is reaping me loads of mental and emotional benefits. Some of the most influential people in history kept detailed journals of their lives. Time to start writing somewhere!

6. Put down your electronics
I have started charging my phone in another room since last year, and it really feels fabulous. No more waking up in the middle of the night due to those nonsense notifications.

7. Learn something new
Signed up for flower arrangement class. Just do something, it always makes me feel accomplished and having that brings a happy you.

8. Count your blessings
Learnt this the hard way with many many lessons. Even when I had to replace my cracked phone screen, I admit there was an ouch in the heart and pocket, I told myself that I am blessed that I can afford it. What a change of perspective can bring.

9. Be your own pom pom girl
Celebrate the little victories, and you will realise that every day is a celebration and there are so many things to be grateful for.

10. Cry if you need to
Somehow, it really releases those pent-up feelings, and now that I am older, it seems like the tap runs a little loose. I was just crying my heart out the other day after my Nepal trip with the bff because it marks our last trip out together from here before she travels for work for 4 years! The next moment was all laughter because we know that the friendship will never change and we will always keep these memories close.

That is it for this instalment. Signing off with loads of love. Till then.
