Let’s start the journey!
Remindmylife is all about starting fresh. Not starting again. Starting where you are right now and making it better! To start fresh, it’s helpful to clear out some of the old. Taking time out for a fresh clean of your house and going through your cupboards and donating clothes can be all you need to start fresh. However don’t get caught holding onto things from the past during this process. Its a trap! The idea is to clear the space and make room to grow.
How can I start my journey of creating a better life. By using Remindmylife you can start fresh through tracking your time, already you will have an established routine in place. One you may not even be aware of. Knowing where you spend most of your time and how much, is powerful as you can use this information to uncover what areas you want or need to work on. Remindmylife keeps things simple by only tracking six areas of life. How much time you spend preparing and eating food. How much time you exercise. How much time you sleep. How much time you work. How much time you meditate and how much Free Time you have for friends, family, games and or going out an about.
Some of your life will really work and some areas of your life wont and thats where you want to make the change. Its helpful to write both down, what works and what doesn’t, so you are clear. At Remindmylife we really understand that everyone wants more free time, to relax and have fun. However no body wants to do the work, have the conversations, make the tough calls or change anything. I can hear you pipe up and say thats not true. But here you are searching for an easy solution. Well the truth is there is no easy solution and you will have to make some tough calls and do some work. Breaking old habits takes consistant action and as you start to really look at where you spend your time it may really piss you off. So to avoid this you will really need to stay focused on what brings you joy, peace and love. And say goodbye to hopelessness, frustration and things that drain you.
Life is just now and only now and being present to that is key to accessing your joy. But you want more of it, I can hear you say, well you need to stop procrastinating and wake up. Wake up to where you are wasting your time and access your joy. You can use the remindmylife app to track your day and practice being present. Everytime you remember to press the timer is one step closer to being present. However, being present takes time, so tracking what you are doing is a great place to start.
Let’s continue to start fresh and maximise your experience of life, by focusing on just 3 key areas, 2 and 1/2 hours of your day as a piority to help you look after yourself and increase your overall enjoyment and wellbeing. Eating and preparing food, exercising and meditating. By being responsible for these three key areas as a piority, you will be able to improve your overall health and well-being and increase the time you have to enjoy and do other things.
Evidence shows that if you prepare your own food at home, you will tend to eat significantly higher amounts of vegetables, salads and fruits. This is great for weight loss and for getting the necessary vitamins and nutients for a healthy body. So all you have to do is simple allocate atleast 1/2 an hour twice a day to prepare food for the day. What’s also helpful here is making sure you have the right ingredients in your house to do this, so once or twice a week write a list, stick to your list and never shop when you are hungry.
Exercising for 45 minutes most days isn’t alot of time to stay healthy. Walking is a great place to start. Mixing it up with muscle strengthening exercises twice a week will also increase strength, bone desity and weight loss. It’s all about creating the habit of being active and getting the benefits from the release of the good hormones. Our bodies need a full work out, so make sure you involve all major muscle groups, but it doesn’t matter what you do. If you are exercising at a higher intensity you wont need to work out as long for the same health benefits but again its all about creating the healthy habit and routine. So work out your schedule at the start of the week and stick to it. No excuses, breaking your word to yourself is the easiest way to take you out of the game. Track your time with the remindmylife app and make the habit apart of your routine. Shift your focus from what you are doing to making the time to do it.
Meditation, what a scary word. Why would I want to sit still and hear the thousands of thoughts instructing me to do a thousand things on loud speaker when I could be doing them. Well, the good news is they are just thoughts, not all those things need to be done and with practice will have no power over you. Meditation can actually be used to achieve mental clarity and emotionally calm states. It is just a word to describe how an individual can use a technique, such as focusing on an object, a word, a thought or an activity to achieve a clear mind. Some of the other benefits include stress reduction, increase productivity, increased focus, increase creativity, emotional balance, decreased depression, pain reduction and improved sleep to name a few. That is why remindmylife values and encourages taking atleast 22 minutes everyday to practice meditation.
Today I’ve really focused on starting your journey, being present, tracking where you are and shifting the balance in your favour in three key areas. Imagine if you just mastered those 2 and 1/2 hours everyday. Imagine how you would feel! Imagine how much more time you would have to enjoy and focused on what brings you joy, peace and love. So let’s start the journey, what are you going to work on?
