I was feeling swamped and chaotic recently.
So I started thinking about guidelines I could follow, to help me handle things as they came up, and feel more in control.
I wrote down a list of “Rules for Life”.
I don’t mean things like “be nice to people”, “say please and thank you”, or “treat others as you’d like to be treated”.
It’s more a personal list of what makes my life easier, and helps me in the day-to-day.
They’ll change as my situation changes. But right now, these things keep me on track:
Bonus tip #11: Go away every January.
Starting the year with a trip makes me feel AWESOME! :)
I met a friend in New York one year on January 4th, as she was there for work. It was the BEST way for me to start a new year; I felt super inspired for ages afterwards.
And now over to you: What would YOUR rules of life be?
What makes your life easier... and what do you know deep down needs to change?
As time goes on, my list will change. (Notice there’s nothing on my list about working out – which I’d like to start doing regularly again.)
But for now, it’s keeping me sane and on track.
And that’s good enough for me! :)
Here’s to rules that work for us.
PS – I should note that I don’t do all these things every day, without fail. I’m a work in progress! But when I do, life is that much sweeter :)
