I know it’s been a while since my last post, but unfortunately my mind decided to go on a vacation for a bit… Happens right? 🙂
Anyway, my post today is about surviving our regular routine day to keep our sanity (if any).
The followings are pure suggestions tested by me on me 🙂
So if your work starts at 9 like mine and you need 30 minutes to get there from where you live, then do we live together??? 😛
I suggest setting your alarm at 6 am, take 10 minutes to contemplate the wall and get your aura all together, try to remember the dream you had, think about what you would like to accomplish today then get out of bed, got to the toilet, well you know what you need to do there.
Find a quiet place with no one around, put on some music, do some Yoga sequence for 15 minutes, (Try this one, you’ll love it http://vimeo.com/8045412) and 30 minutes of some stretches
Finish all this with an energy boost, take a shower for more energy, get dressed and off to work.
The secret not to get frustrated while stuck in traffic is to put your earphones and turn some music on. Detach yourself from other drivers, from the morning honks and wander in your own musical world.
Now that you’re at work, start your computer, prepare your coffee and breakfast, keep the music on do your work till 11h30.
Take a break, prepare a cup of green tea, walk around the office, talk to your colleagues, surf the web then back to work until it’s lunch time. The best thing is to have health food (I suggest vegetarian food: guilt/cruelty free). Take half an hour break, prepare another cup of green tea and finish the work you have.
It’s 5h and you haven’t noticed it!
Now what to do after work: (the activities I’M involved in)
-Monday/Wednesday: Spanish courses till 9
-Tuesday: Jogging with a friend
-Thursday: TEDxSKE / Donner Sang Compter
That’s a full schedule I intended to have to keep myself busy and worthy 🙂
After all those finished, I go home sit with my family, talk about our day, drink some tea with them, cuddle my cat Bruce and play with him after not seeing him all day, shower and read a book.
Now for the Week-end, well we all know those 2 short days are for going out with friends, partying and having fun (but please always be safe and drink responsibly, or don’t be the one driving).
Now for breaking the daily routine, think of something creative, nice, environmental friendly, cruelty free and try to accomplish any everyday. Something like in the movie “Pay it forward” which I recommend everyone to watch, do something nice to someone and tell them they have to do something nice to someone else and so it goes on and on… Spread Positivity, Love, Awareness…
As you may have noticed, music plays a big role in my everyday life because this is the only thing that helps me get through everything, music is an amazing tool to help you relax, think, focus, and wander in your own world. (I’m actually listening to some music right now while writing this post).
And I also mentioned Green Tea many times, because I recently read that it is “The Natural Secret for a Healthier Life” (http://chinesefood.about.com/library/weekly/aa011400a.htm).
So this is me & my daily routine! It hope it might reach someone looking for a healthy routine and help them 🙂
