Recently, I’ve picked up a lot of audiobooks and I’ve been listening to them in my free time. It’s the best feeling when I have a book that I love and can’t stop listening to. You’ve ever had that feeling of not wanting to stop because it’s so interesting to read? I get so many new insights on topics. At the same time, I get to challenge myself to look at new perspectives and be prepared to change my thoughts. Other times, I am more sure than ever on my values and beliefs because of science studies. I feel like I grow a lot because of audiobooks! I really love to learn new things!
It’s important for me to set aside time to reflect on things. I always do this at the end of the year or when I’m on vacation in summer. I reflect on my days and what I want to do more of and what I want to do less of. I sometimes write a weekly schedule and try to follow it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it don’t work. I experiment, move around activities in the week, I try again. I listen to my body and mind. Do I feel relaxed? Does my body like it? Most importantly - Am I having fun? If I’m constantly stressed and feel tired and grumpy, then what’s the point?
It’s so easy to just go along with activities and not take the time to evaluate them. Right now, for example, I really think about all the good benefits of spending less time on social media and more time outside. To summarize it all, in order to do more high value activities, I need to spend less time on low value activities.
Will tell more about the high and low value activities some other time! ~ヾ(＾∇＾)
