Things To Do For Myself Today #7

Being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure. – Bob Marley

Hey there!

I’m Matt, Lucie’s boyfriend. I tried to convince her for a while (yeah, he really did) to let me write one small post for the series (because I think it’s a good idea). Now, I finally did it!

I hope you never mind and you’ll like these three things I do for myself today.

So, let’s get dive into it.

1| slow down

I don’t know about you, but I’m completely exhausted by all this hurry for increasing my own productivity. Are we robots? Let’s say STOP to this constant rush and give a chance to the creative procrastination.

Sit down on a bench, close your eyes and let your imagination run riot. Don’t think about anything today. Try to just sit and enjoy that “being” – time spent with yourself.

You will see that a lot of ideas will come to your mind just because you give yourself some space to think about it. And what about making them real?

2| cut yourself off from negative people/thing

…from things or people who don’t make you happy and take the energy from you. And how to do it?

Unsubscribe from dozens of newsletters you delete every day and keep only those you really enjoy.

On Facebook, stop following people who permanently share millions of post and status that don’t make any sense. Trust me, you won’t miss anything.

You don’t want to meet that person who always needs your attention? Then don’t go. Spend less time on computers and mobile phones. It’s too exhausting even if we don’t realise it.

Go to the forest, the meadow or where you feel most alive and draw that energy.

3| reward yourself properly

There is nothing better then give yourself a BIG break after the challenging week. I have been doing this for two weeks now and it’s great – energising.

Actually, it doesn’t matter which type of reward it will be. Personally, I think it should be something small – like dessert or ice-cream. But if you don’t like sweet, choose something else. However, I think the food is a good choice (in case, it’s not too much).

Okay, that’s all. I really enjoyed writing this post and I hope you too! Let me know in comments what will you do for yourself today.

    I think that desserts are the best reward, too. Wonderful post! 🙂

      Right? Thanks for stopping by Ellie!

  2. Claire

    Hi Matt & Lucie, I really enjoyed this post! I agree with you on all of the things and can’t really choose one thing that is better than another. These days everyone is so busy and want things fast, that keeping things slow really matters. Like reading a good book by the water or something!! I recently graduated & wrote the things I have learned from my college years, and your #2 was same as mine hehe. And yes, #3 I like rewarding myself with some fine dining ☺️☺️ Thanks for sharing this informative post!!

      Hey Claire, firstly, thank you for your nice words. Also, congratulate to your graduation! 🙂 Reading books are our favourite thing to do and we enjoy it also by a good cup of tea hehe. Have a nice day!

  3. Tami

    Wonderful post! It’s nice that your boyfriend wanted to write one – I wish my husband was into this sort of thing, haha. 🙂 Great ideas and thanks for sharing!

    • Lucie

      Matt thanks you. He is very glad for your comment. 😉 I think you should try harder (as my boyfriend) and maybe you’ll convince him too. Have a nice day, Tami
