10 Healthy Habits To Transform Your Life…๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

#wellnesswednesday

1. Complete this sentence to start your day.

โ€œI love myself because I ___________.โ€

2. Do housework as much as you can. (Yes a clean house soothes the mind)

3. Have an evening walk with your family.

4. Park your vehicle farther away from the destination. Walking more means burning more!

5. Spend time in Garden and Yard Work.

(I promise this is relaxing and soothes the mind as well)

6. Take the stairs instead of elevators.

7. Your brain also needs exercise. Play some brain games

8. Start journaling.

9. Join classes like dance, tennis, yoga, aerobics, scuba diving or anything you love.

10. Take a break to yourself whenever you stressed out.

A lot of these I have personally done, except for number 9๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ…think I might have to try some yoga ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

Tips for Confidence….๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

#tuesdaytips

#confidence

๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธI have lost count how many times I’ve read and heard of celebrity marriages failing. Not that I care , it just seems unusual that we frequently see movie and TV stars as unflawed individuals, living the fairy tale life of riches and glamour. I guess we all have to quit sticking our heads in the sand and confront reality.

There are a lot of ways to lose your sense of confidence despite of how trivial it might be. But whatever occurs, we ought to all try not to lose our own sense of self.

So what does it take to be a cut above the rest? Here are a few of the things you are able to improve on:

๐Ÿ”นKnow your passion.Are you drifting through life with little direction – hoping that you’ll come across happiness, health and prosperity? Identify your life passion or mission statement and you’ll have your own unequalled compass that will lead you to your truth every time.This might appear tricky initially when you feel you’re at a dead end. But there’s always a way to turn things around and you are able to make a big difference in your life.๐Ÿ”นUnderstand your values.What do you value most? Arrive at a list of your top five values. A few examples are security, freedom, loved ones, spiritual development, and learning.As you set your goals for this year – check your goals against your values. If the goal doesn’t line up with any of your top 5 values – you might want to reconsider it or revise it.๐Ÿ”นUnderstand your needs.Unmet needs may keep you from living genuinely. Take care of yourself. Do you have a need to be acknowledged, to be correct, to be in command, to be loved? There are so many individuals who live their lives without realizing their aspirations and most of them wind up being stressed or even depressed for that matter. List your top 4 needs and get them met before it’s too late!

๐Ÿ”นUnderstand your loves.

You know who you are and what you truly like in life. Obstacles like doubt and lack of exuberance will only hinder you, but won’t derail your chance to become the individual you ought to be. Express yourself and honor the individuals who have inspired you to become the very individual you wanted to be.

๐Ÿ”นLive from the inside out.

Better your awareness of your inner wisdom by regularly reflecting in silence. Commune with nature. Breathe deeply to calm your distracted mind. For most of us it’s difficult to even find the peace and quiet we want even in our own household.

In my case I frequently just sit in a dimly lit room and play some classical music. There’s sound, yes, but music does soothe.

๐Ÿ”นObserve your strengths.

What are your favorable traits? What special talents do you have? List 3 – if you bog down, ask those closest to you to help describe these. Are you inventive, witty, and good with your hands? Discover ways to express your genuine self through your strengths. You are able to better your self- confidence when you are able to share what you know to other people.

๐Ÿ”นServe other people.

When you live genuinely, you might find that you develop an interrelated sense of being. When you’re true to whom you are, living your passion and giving of your talents to the world around you, you repay in service what you came to share with other people -your spirit – your essence. Sharing your gift with those close to you is so rewarding.

Confidence is indeed one type of work that’s worth it. It shouldn’t always be inside the confines of an office building, or in your room. The difference lies inside ourselves and how much we wish to change for the better.

Tuesday Tips….๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

#tuesdaytips

Sometimes you are so overwhelmed with endless work or studies, family and friends. You find that you donโ€™t have the time to do anything. So how exactly, do you organize your life and create more hours in a day?

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพGet yourself a planner!

Write down everything that you need, your groceries list, your phone, your appointment dates. Write everything down inside there. Then in your planner, make a to-do list for your day. Donโ€™t make a list that you canโ€™t achieve. Like for instance, you would like to complete a paper by today. That is impossible isnโ€™t it? Break your large tasks into small actionable tasks. Then make a to-do list for the week. This is an extension of your daily list. What you canโ€™t do today, you can do tomorrow for that week.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพBe effective with your activities!

Do all your shopping at one go. Donโ€™t go to the store to buy your milk now, then in the evening, drop by to buy toilet paper. You are wasting your time. Compile a shopping list and do all your shopping at one go. Another example will be to pay your bills all at one time instead of paying them at different times.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพMulti task

Do you have to wait at the dentist for an appointment and at the same time you have to write that important paper? So whilst you are waiting for the dentist, bring your piece of paper and brainstorm about the ideas you use to write in your paper. Load the washing machine and whilst waiting for it, send some emails, or do your calls.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸพAssign a time frame

Set a timeframe for your tasks each day. Give a time slot for each item and plan your day properly. For example, you have to go to the dentists at 11 and you also have to buy groceries. So while you are out of the house, put your groceries shopping at 10 in the morning and then you can go to the dentist after that. Then you can go straight away home. You are saving time and saving on fuel too instead of two trips out of the house.

So what are you waiting for? Get your life organized and you will find that you have more hours in a day to do everything!

Morning Prayer…

Father, I ask You for a fresh vision for what breakthrough will look like in my life. Help me to pursue healing while I wait for my miracle. Show me how to rest right in the middle of the storm. Help me to enjoy the feast You prepare for me, right in the middle of the battlefield. I want my whole life to testify that thereโ€™s a God in heaven who knows my name and who will get me safely home. Fill me afresh with the wonder of Your love and power. I am determined to win this battle with anxiety. Help me to discern when to rest, when to feast, and how to actively engage my faith as I wait for You to breakthrough. May my life display Your power. Do the impossible in and through me, I pray. Amen.

Have a Terrific Tuesday friends….โ˜บ๏ธ

Prayer To Keep Going….

Dear holy Father,

When the pressure mounts and the troubles of this world begin to close in, give me the grace to return to you. I donโ€™t want to be a hero. I donโ€™t want the easy way out.

All I want, all I need, is your loving mercy. Never leave me Lord. Keep me under your wing. Even if I donโ€™t feel you there, at least let me understand that you are there.

Give me the strength to take up my cross and fight the good fight. Let your grace allow me to believe in the only one that gives me truth and clarity despite the pain and struggle.

And if it be your will, fill my heart and soul with the overwhelming joy that only your Spirit gives. For in the Messiah, I find my resurrection. In Christ almighty, all things are made new again.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Happy Friday…..

Quick Ways To Build Your Self Confidence….

#thursdaythoughts

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ The very first step is to accept yourself โ€“ lovingly. No person in the world in perfect so why bother to shed tears over your imperfectness. This is how God wanted us to be โ€“ Imperfect! We might have something that someone else may lack and someone else might be endowed with the qualities, which we lack. This incompleteness makes us go out and seek companions who make us feel loved, wanted and complete. Oh what a great feeling! Would we experience it if we were inside the cocoon of our perfection? Never! So accept yourself the way you are. It will free your mind of a heavy baggage of unnecessary worries. You will instantly feel light and cheerful.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸพLiberate yourself – Go out and do what you like! – How long it has been since you last went to have a walk among the pines โ€“ something that you loved as a child? How long has it been when you walked hand in hand with your friend to the bakery and tossed a coin to decide what to buy? These might seem very simple things but these simple things have the power to add on to build great confidence and fulfilment. Life if see is actually quite simple. What gets a bit too complex though is to remain simple. Isnโ€™t it? Just as small drops of water make the mighty ocean, the little things you enjoy doing have the capability to turn you into a storehouse of confidence. When God made you, He put a desire in your heart and bestowed onto you the capability to achieve it. However, in the process of growing up, you forgot what exactly your purpose was, what is that you liked and what is that you enjoyed doing. It does happen with lots and lots of people who do feel like breaking free but are too tied up in their day to day responsibilities that it gets impossible for them to spare even 10 minutes to reflect on their lives, their direction, their dreams and goals. Itโ€™s our duty to clear the mess that prevents us from hearing to our heart. The conversations with your heart should keep getting clearer and the best way to do it is to find time to do what you enjoy. And since you enjoy doing that activity, it straightaway means that you have all the aptitude and intelligence necessary to do the job effortlessly even though you may not realize it.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸพFind your flock – Birds of a feather flock together. You must find out people with whom you enjoy being. They are certainly the people of your frequency and the energy flow between you and them is natural. Life becomes easy when you are among the people who are more or less on the same plane of thought as you and itโ€™s easier to relate to them. They seem to understand you and vice versa thus creating conditions for healthy conversations. A good conversation is a very healthy exercise and an important need of our mind. We all want our ideas to be heard and appreciated and a good company provides platform for the same.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพSet Achievable Goals and Go for it! – The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. The idea is to begin with a small single step that can then further developed into giant strides. Learn to do the work at hand rather than to overwhelm oneself by looking at the entirety of a mammoth looking task. Just like the soil underneath your foot, the top of mountain too would someday be under your step. The only way to do something is to GO FOR IT! No matter how small the progress is the focus should be on completing a task successfully even though itโ€™s a small task. A series of big uncompleted task is a sure shot way to depression. Break a big task into a list of small tasks to be completed. Tick off from your list each job successfully completed. A completed task no matter how small it is gives a sense of achievement that boosts our confidence and equips us with more energy to try a bigger task.

Good Morning…Start Your Day in Prayer

Lord, I donโ€™t know what lay before me today, but I commit it all to you. Please give me strength and courage to get through the joys, challenges and happenings of the day. I thank you for my life and for all that I have; I commit this day to you. No matter what happens, I know you have me in the palm of your hand. In Jesusโ€™ name I pray, amen.

“Lord, grant me tenacious winsome courage as I go through this day. When I am tempted to give up, help me to keep going. Grant me a cheerful spirit when things don’t go my way. And give me courage to do whatever needs to be done. In Jesus’ name, Amen.” –

Have an awesome day friends ๐Ÿ™‚
