There are SO MANY THINGS that we can each be doing to make the most of this season!! It’s a crazy time. I literally say “What a crazy time to be alive!” ? every single time I leave my house, because, well – it IS! It is fascinating, and interesting, and weird – and it makes for great people watching….and an opportunity to study human behavior ✔
I’ve seen quite a few posts around “if you come out of this and haven’t bettered yourself in some way, you never lacked time, you lacked discipline” ? and while I think there’s some truth to that (because we all have this opportunity), I would like to open up some different versions of what “bettering yourself” can look like ?
Here are a few examples of some things that can contribute to a stronger you! Take your pick. Start with one and grow from there!
?Do your nails
?‍♀️Practice a new hairstyle
?‍♀️Try a new makeup routine
??Practice your “smize” (smiling with your eyes, per Tyra Banks) – see these pictures as an example…just imagine there’s a mask on so all you’d see is my eyes
?Have an impromptu photoshoot (I invited my neighbor over to take part and we had a blast – while safely 6+ feet apart the whole time)!
?Rearrange furniture
?Go through your closet and get rid of things you haven’t worn in the last year
?Set your bills up on auto-pay
?Get your calendar organized and finally block out some “me time” where you can focus on learning something you’ve been wanting to learn about
?Shop in your closet and plan your outfits for the next week (bonus points for setting them out with shoes, undergarments, accessories, etc.)
?Read that book
?Write that book
?Start that business
?(re)Connect with that person
?Ask that person out
?Make that fancy dinner
☕craft that perfect cappuccino with that perfect foam
Whatever you choose to do, do it with intention ? Make it count. Don’t do it just to check the box. Do it to change your life!
And if you’re thinking to yourself “doing new makeup doesn’t count” or “those first few things won’t really better you!” then I’d challenge you to read this vulnerable post from a few years ago about bettering ourselves from the outside in, and how external adjustments can totally impact internal state.
