How to set goals?

Hello! I wanted to share a few questions that help me realize where I’m going in life and what I want to work on right now.

The most powerful question is:

What would you do if you have only two years left to live?

I feel like it just puts things in perspective. If my lifelong dream is to visit Japan, what am I waiting for? There will be no right time. I could die tomorrow.

Other questions I also really like to ask myself are:

How would you spend your days if you had 1 billion dollars in your account?

What would you do if it were impossible to fail?

What area of ​​your life requires more attention? Work, relationships, health?

A little bit about self care

Hello. I just wanted to remind you how important self care is. At the end of the day – your body, your mind, your relationship with yourself – that’s all you have. Let’s be real, you can lose everything tomorrow and anyone can betray you. In 20 years from now you won’t live on the same place, you won’t be around the same people, the only constant in your life is you. You won’t even be a good parent if you don’t know how to deal with yourself.

So you really need to love yourself and take care of yourself. Take your nighttime skin care routine slow. Exercise. If you are a mess journal the hell out of it. Never ever let anyone make you feel bad.

“The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the relationship with yourself.” – Steve Maraboli

I’m kinda in the mood for more chill posts like this lately. It just feels so cozy in this little community, you are all so kind.

Stay awesome

Cozy weather checklist

Heyy, I haven’t been posting lately. I have a lot going on right now because of the university, so I made a checklist of things that I can do this fall to actually enjoy it and make it a little bit more special. Here it goes.

How to reset your life

1. Declutter

I suggest decluttering by categories:

  • clothes
  • towels, sheets
  • kitchen
  • books and papers
  • everything else: cosmetics, decorations, etc.
  • your car/garage
  • digital space – I treat it like any other space

Just take everything out, on your bed or floor. Declutter and find a nice home for everything that’s left.

2. Clean everything

Deep clean your home room by room.

Spend more time with the most important people in your life!

3. Rethink your goals and priorities

It just feels so fresh to have a new goals. I would even start a new planner if I already did all of these things.

4. Declutter your days

It may sound weird, but how are you spending your days? Who are you spending your days with? Stop doing stuff you don’t want to do and start doing meaningful things that makes you happy. Break your bad habits.

I would like to hear your opinions. Have a great day!

Productivity Tips That Actually Work

Stop doing busywork. If you have to work, it’s not time to do the dishes. Work on the most important things first.

Do not multitask. Focus on one thing at a time.

Find out when is your most productive time. If you are a morning person plan your work in the mornings and vice versa.

Don’t have more than 3-5 items on your to-do list. You’re just going to disappoint yourself.

Done is better than perfect. This one is very important for people who are never finishing their projects.

If you are tired take a break. You can eat or go for a walk – both will give you energy. Don’t go on social media.

Take care of your health.

Make good habits and break the bad ones. It’s hard in the beginning but it’s totally worth it.

Use the Pomodoro technique – set a timer for 25 minutes, turn on “do not disturb” on your phone and just work. Take a 5 minute break and repeat.

Structure your days and weeks – have a morning routine, have a cleaning routine, etc.

Write down nagging thoughts. If you are doing your homework and something came to your mind – write that down and think about that later.

Set a deadline. If you give yourself a month to deep clean your home it will take you a month. If you give yourself a week it will take you a week.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I would like to hear your opinions!

My Sunday Routine

I started doing this about a year ago. I was always so busy and never getting things done and this saved me.

1. I deep clean my apartment, so I don’t really need to clean during the week. If you want to know my cleaning routine check this out.

2. I put a face mask on, shave my legs and paint my nails. All the beauty things that I don’t really have a time to do, or even if I have, I just forget.

3. The third thing that I do is my weekly planning routine. I write down what I have to do next week and then incorporate goal-related stuff in that plan. It kinda keeps me working on my goals all the time which is great.
