Hi lovelies! It’s Monday, and the Diva is journaling. Today I’m attempting to empty my brain and myself by doing a mid-year (late mid-year) restart. I’m doing this with the assistance of Marc & Angel Chernoff, who are authors, (1000 Little Things Happy Successful People Do Differently) bloggers, teachers and professional coaches who were recognized by Forbes as having “one the most popular personal development blogs around.” They have a blog called Marc and Angel Hack Life and I’m a subscriber of their daily/weekly inspirational advice/ideas that can help jump start and get you over the hump.
For me, one of the most helpful bits of information they’ve shared is an article called 30 things to start doing for yourself. Usually two or three ideas might jump off the page at some people, but I must admit there were several things on the list that attacked the hell out of me and were absolutely vital in order for somewhat of a transformation to occur in my life. I keep this beside my bed on my night stand. I pull it out regularly.
#24 on the list is start working toward your goals every single day. One of my goals is to turn my home into a total tranquil environment, calm, serene, free from commotion.
I’m a highly organized person, effortlessly. Now I’m not the person who finishes everything on time with time to spare, nor am I the person who never misses deadlines, (some of mine have to be extended), however most of the time I can find exactly what I’m looking for. I live my life in an organized manner, with my work routine as well. Productivity is important to me. It’s my mindset. However, because I’m away from home more during the week that I am home, sometimes my life there needs a little adjusting. It can be something as small as placing a vase of flowers in a particular place to jump start me in the mornings to getting rid of furniture, clothes, or clearing away “hot spots” (you know…those areas that pile up quickly, like mail piles). This weekend I got rid of a huge piece of furniture that was quickly becoming an eye sore, and I rearranged my bedroom. It feels like life is already flowing freely throughout my space. I’m eager to get home and just be there. I’m going to be getting into aromatherapy soon to help boost my productivity, and to calm me as well.
So if you’re feeling stagnant, check out Marc and Angel Hack Life. Also there are many, many more blogs, activities, apps, books, personal counseling, etc. that can assist in moving you from a to z.
Until next time, Ciao!
