The year 2020 taught everyone a great lesson. 2021 is no different. We have learnt that living in lockdown is hard. In the past we used to go for a sunny holiday to get away from things. We have had to learn new ways to deal with lifes pressures. Taking pleasure form a simple walk in the park was one of the things we have re-discovered.
Here are 5 Tips to easy living.
1) A clutterless home is a clutterless mind
We get it – when life gets busy, sometimes our home comes second to everything else. But it doesn’t take much time to add a little Marie Kondo decluttering magic to your house each day. Split your home into sections and dedicate a specific day of the week to tidy it up for 10 minutes. By staying on top of the little things, you’ll feel productive and accomplished. Place unused items that you still need in moving boxes and store them in a shed or storage unit.
2) Getting on a sleep schedule
Your body deserves more than just a great night’s sleep here and there! Getting in the habit of a consistent sleep schedule is one of the best things you can do. A routine helps increase your focus, energy, and productivity. Remember to put that electronic device out of reach from your bed.
3) Master the art of mobility
We run, bike, surf, play sports and move our bodies all day long. In order to continue doing the activities we love, we have to place the same amount of importance on recovery as we do training. Mobility work maintains the health of our joints and muscles. It’s basically a big THANK YOU to your body after a big day on the water, bush walking, exercising or wherever your adventures take you.
4) Make your diet a priority
Keeping up on nutrition, fuelling your body, and making food a priority can make all the difference in your mood, productivity and your fitness. To make sure you’re not scrambling for the easiest options or skipping meals, find a day for shopping and meal prep. Use grocery or meal prep services to make cooking a breeze. A clean kitchen reset after use will be more inviting to prepare your own meals than a dirty cluttered kitchen.
5) Take time for yourself
It seems to be all about the grind these days – working at full capacity day in and day out. When you choose to dedicate time to yourself each day, you’ll notice a huge difference in the quality of your work, your motivation, and your mood. It doesn’t take much – maybe it’s listening to your favourite podcast at night, planning for your next weekend adventure or even a simple walk around the block. Whatever it is, give yourself some intentional time to decompress, dream and relax.
