I now use Sundays as a Reset and it really gives a kick start to the week ahead. I am not a massive fan of cleaning and so it does take a long to get myself to do it, but feel good once done and seen the results.
I use Sundays and Mondays to reset and that is clearing rubbish, go through lists not completed and just go through what I have done and what I do next.
It revaluates your life, as you can see what area of my life you need to work on, example for me I need to fit in time exercise more, and so I will go for a walk each day and once I get the message “Do a workout” that is exactly what I will do, and you can use exercise to reset your life.
Exercising has so many benefits. Example I find it gives me a good boost of energy and feel good about my body and how I feel about myself. I will make sure I give myself time to look after my skin and going through what I have that I still love and what I don’t.
I will vacuum my bedroom each week and do a bit of dusting, and just getting things in shape. I like space and allow myself time to gather my life and keep growing.
Spend time to journal and gather my thoughts and fears. Have time changing my bedding and just spend time working and building on different areas of my life.
It can be anything that is making you feel overwhelmed and you need more shape in your life.
So have time to reset your life and help you be in a positive mindset.
Hello! So I have just filmed a new video to go up about setting goals, and the one thing I do to help achieve my goals is map out of the things I want to grow and to help improve my videos and blogs. Life is about growing and continuous learning. This video will go up onto my Main Youtube Channel, in the next couple days, and I did upload a video yesterday about Summer Anxieties: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUDFIqjVKLy7NhtcR6Hy0Tg
I love to learn new things and keep building and building. This is why I will with each notebook I use create a map of the current things I am working on, and helps to workout where I need to do to market my videos and blogs, and need to share my videos more via my social media, and I have not been doing so. This is helps find the cracks in your life that could do with a bit of attention.
So get a piece of paper or a note and begin, and I have written about this in a book that are on Amazon, under the names, Carrie Challoner, Carrie Lee Holmes and Carrie Holmes.
It is like a more structure brainstorm and I did write a book about this too Called Brainstormind and again keep them together with your map and focus on one area at a time.
I am now going to work on putting my 3rd Quarter goals and I use One Note to do this but going to change it to put it up on my Notion account and would recommend. Not sponsored at all, it is just what I need to keep myself up to date with important and less important lists.
So go on create those maps and colour code if it helps and make it your own.
There will always be events in our lives we have no control over like today in London there was a bus crash and I travel by bus most days, and it questions “Is life worth living when it can be soon be taken?”
I watched a video of Meat Loaf his last ones he made before he died, and in it he was already planning his future and see that even when life can be fragile it can also be a huge lift of “I need to live my life now”
Often we can feel like the world is on our shoulders and that there is no where to go that will lift you out of the feeling of “Is this really my life?” and so we get stuck in that bubble, but you can feel good about your life by making gradual steps, like changing your daily routine and get away from the norm that comes to life.
I remember once when it was my friends birthday and was on a Tuesday, but we met knowing we had work the next day, but we got into a huddle and went clubbing and was such a good night, so doing something to your norm can bring back the life in you. The next day after that Tuesday though, I didn’t go into work and slept in, which I would not promote, but doing the everyday routine can bring us down, and wanting a bit of a change from what you do every single day can make a huge difference to your wellness and health, in terms of how you wake up the next day and want to have more days and nights to do one thing different that you don’t always do. Like when I was up in London would arrange a meet up with friends last minute and staying over at a friends afterwards unplanned.
Never stop planning life and if you fancy meeting someone for an afternoon tea for example then save up, set a date and contact to see who will be able to go with you and have that luxury. It is something I really want to do again and so going to schedule it for it to happen.
I am really want to go and watch a football match again, with my son and have it in my planner on OneNote to have this booked and wanted to take Henry to another show and we are, we are going to see a play about the Gingerman at the Polka Theatre who do a lot of shows for kids and would recommend, oh I am not sponsored them but if someone who works there would like me to, I would say yes definitely.
Life can be full of surprises and if you are fed up in doing the same thing over and over again it can be boring and that is where it can lead you to feel negative about life. I love having things to look forward and it breaks up the days and weeks to come.
I write blogs everyweek and many things planned. If you like to see my first Newsletter I did starting this month, please click the file linked below:
I also have three Youtube channels and you kind find a lot of my content on Pinterest, plus I am on social media and so see all the links below, and I have written many books and these can be found on Amazon.com under the names Carrie Challoner, Carrie Lee Holmes and Carrie Holmes.
Hello and welcome! This is the last post as part of my 30 day challenge where I have been posting on this site daily and glad I did. This is it for my daily blogs and thank you for the follows and likes I have received and sorry to bombard your inbox of my posts I just wanted to see if I could do it and to grow my content more but now will go back to posting on this site once a week.
In this post I talking about Changing the Routes to your life from a brainstorm I did before I this challenge and I have already covered on this site about Changing the story of your life and journey which became an EBook check out Amazon.com and under the name Carrie Lee Holmes and making small changes to your life and to do that you do need to make decisions on the route to lead you to having a better life and build it up to an everlasting change.
I have taken different routes in my life like a complete career change to working in Butlins Bognor Regis, temping and then returning to work in London and Chessington etc, and glad I did because it what worked at the time. Now I am ready for a new set of challenges by taking further routes and expanding myself I am glad to have found writing again.
I am able to look at myself now and think “Your doing okay and stay on this route it is heading onto more good things and keeping my spirits high”.
Sometimes it means sitting down again and going back to the drawing board to take a different route and setting new goals.
Scrapping goals is okay as unplanned events can take over and so changing goals is not failure it is re-routing your plans and adapting them to unexpected avenues that have cropped up, and develop new skills and changing the view of your situation.
I have been lucky that I have worked for many organisations and now ready to expand even more and because I was in a Mentalhealth hospital for a month, it really made me re-order my life and made me more guarded and choose my next route to grow myself even further.
