Today’s post will be different from the fashion topic as I am launching my first lifestyle post! I will be still running my fashion blog, but I would love to share with you some ideas about lifestyle as I believe a certain style can only be achieved by mastering both.
Our lives are so complex these days, that we often find ourselves overwhelmed by daily tasks. But have you wondered why? Why are you feeling stressed about all these aspects coming together? In this article, I will share my own experience so far with managing my tasks including studies, work and other activities, highlighting key solutions to avoid stress.
- Take a step back
When you feel stressed, take a step back for five seconds and ask yourself a simple question ‘What am I doing?’. If you have a lot of things going on, my number one advice is to prioritise. Make a list in the beginning of the day with tasks to complete. If you want to see progress, write down things you wish to complete, focusing on sticking to a bigger (let’s say) monthly plan.
2. Use any spare time available to you during the day
This idea might not be to everyone’s liking, but it’s really worth a try. For example, you might have to shop online for groceries, tickets or you have to write a piece of work. Don’t wait until you get into ‘that mind set’. You can actually use any time slot you have available during the day. I find commuting or train journeys really useful for dealing with tasks on my list. You will notice that suddenly you will feel better for getting things done sooner than having to wait until you reach your destination (and usually ending up procrastinating again).
3. When you are working, make sure you only do so!
Ok, so you got your plan, but how to go about it? When you work, please do so! Don’t let other things distract you from it (mobile phone, social media, texts, other talking to you). And do not spend time thinking/complaining about the work, go ahead and do it! Be efficient and progress driven in everything you do.
- Live the moments for relaxation to the fullest
I cannot stress this enough! Don’t let deadlines stress you! Be confident! You know you’re good. You know that in the past you completed your tasks very well, so why stress this time? In my view, it is highly important that you create a ‘wall’ between your professional life and personal life. In the moment you feel you let them interfere in a negative way, such as when you might experience stress from workplace, outside the working schedule, you have to reconsider your priorities. As long as you plan out your workload and work productively, you will be able to feel more organised. However, training your brain into enjoying free time when you’re going through a hard time is an exercise to master. I am still working on it, but experience proves I did a good job, so I am confident for the future.
- Learn that everything is fixable
Made a mistake? Did something have a negative impact on you? Learn to deal with it patiently. There is nothing worse than becoming super worried because the solution can be just in front of you! Understanding that everything is fixable is key in achieving a positive and relaxed attitude that ultimately will lead to mind peace.
6. Create the perfect environment for you with beautiful flowers
A tidy nicely decorated room can highly help you be at ease. I feel more relaxed when I find myself in clear of clutter surroundings. Also, I believe that having flowers in my bedroom contribute to creating a peaceful atmosphere. I feel more productive and enthusiastic about everything that I am doing (even online banking!). There’s no room decoration out there that can recreate that atmosphere. They’re alive and make me feel full of energy. You should get into the habit of keeping flowers regularly.
This beautiful bouquet ‘Happy Harmony’ was kindly sent to me by the 123 Flowers company. The brand offers perfectly made flower bouquets for every occasion. I believe people might be afraid of their bouquet not actually looking just like the one on their website when ordering flowers online, but this is absolutely not the case. Their real-life flowers look exactly like the ones in the picture. Trust me, they won my heart with this one. This is a great advantage for them as a brand – meeting and even exceeding customers’ expectation is key. Have a look at their website to discover different bouquets they have available for you: https://www.123-flowers.co.uk
With every order you receive a free vase and you get the opportunity to add a cute bear to brighten someone’s day. I don’t know how really, but it’s the 6th day I’ve been keeping the bouquet in my room and the flowers are still lasting! I am really happy with the flowers and their constant care for the bouquet – it was sent in a big beautiful box so the product was not damaged at all. You can fully trust 123 Flowers with your order and they will not disappoint you 🙂
