Guest Post: Improve Your Daily Schedule

White Board Schedule, Markers, Eraser  Are you among these people who are constantly complaining that they are too pressed for time and therefore unable to run all the errands they are supposed to during the day. Don’t you think that improving your schedule, making it more flexible and easy to follow can greatly improve your ability to cope with all the tasks at your home, office, garden and even find some time for yourself? Make the necessary changes and start doing more things that make you happy.

  • Don’t underestimate the importance of the good sleep. An adult needs to sleep between 6 and 8 hours per night in order to be energetic and productive during the day.
  • It is a well-known fact that breakfast is the most important meal for the day. Under no circumstances should you miss it but you have to make sure it is healthy and nutritional. Having an abundant breakfast will save you time for snacks during the main meals and will undoubtedly have a positive impact on your body.
  • Do your best not to neglect your appearance and absorb yourself in performing the tedious daily tasks. You need no more than 20 minutes a day to look good and rest assured it will be noticed by your friends and co workers.
  • In general, there are two types of people – those who are more productive in the morning and those who get energetic in the afternoon. If your manager allows so, set your personal working hours. Always perform the most difficult and time – consuming responsibilities at that time when you feel in a top form. Prolonging and postponing the unpleasant tasks won’t do you a good favor.
  • Before leaving the office take your time and make a list of all the things you have to do the next day. It will enable you to go straight to the work instead of wasting time and getting distracted while planning the daily activities.
  • If you are the only one within the household who really cares about cleanliness and neatness, it’s time for changes. Ask your spouse or your kids help you do the weekly cleaning. Throwing the rubbish and wiping down the computer screen are easy cleaning procedures that can be performed by everyone. They don’t take more than 10 minutes but when you have to do everything on your own, every minute counts. However, when divided by PerfectCleaning, house chores take much less time.
  • Even if you are really busy, don’t forget your friends and family. They can help you overcome the stress you are exposed to. Sharing your issues and concerns with your closest ones and spending some time outdoors will greatly improve your mood and reduce the anxiety.
  • Minimize the time you spend in front of the computer. Don’t you think that there are much more enjoyable activities than spending the evening browsing in the social networks and reading nonsense? If you want to use them anyway, set up a meeting with friends, read the latest book of your favorite author, listen to your favorite music.
  • Find some time to workout. Concentrating on the proper performance of the exercise will help you be fit and forget about the daily worries for a while. However, if you don’t have to go to the gym sporadically. Set two or three days of the week when you can go and do some training and stick to your new schedule.It is never too late to start all over, rearrange and prioritize your goals. There is time for everything you want to do and you can undoubtedly find the happy medium between work, family and fun.

So, You Think You’ve Got No Superpowers?

Words

Bitch!
Beautiful!
Perfect!
Stupid!
Lovely!
Exciting!
Fun!
Boring!

Those are single words which ranges from 4 letters and more.
Those were short, yet, imagine yourself receiving those words.
Imagine your boss saying, “You are stupid.” or saying, ” You are Lovely!” or what if he’d say, “You’ve done a perfect work”. What do you think would you feel? Do you think those words can change your mood right from that instant? Do you think it will affect your whole day?

Imagine your office mate or classmate saying “Bitch!” in front of your face.
What do you think would you feel?
Rage?
Anger?
Fear?

But what if that classmate/office mate would say, “You are pretty today.”
What do you think will you feel?
Happy?
Inspired?
Loved?

Again, it’s endless.

See how words can transform one simple day to a day full of happiness and love?
Or those same words can make you feel angry and fearful?

That is the power of words.
Words can work like a magic wand.
Just say something good and the person receiving it will feel good in an instant and just say something bad, they’d feel down and weary thereafter.

See how powerful you are?

When you choose your words properly, you’d also choose the power you’d put into your hands.

You have the power to encourage or discourage, motivate or degrade or invite or reject.

words

Therefore, if you choose your words, you will also choose your own superpowers.

So, You Think You’ve Got No Superpowers?

Think Again. :)

Movie Suggestion: The Miracle Worker

What is this movie all about? And what makes this movie interesting?

This movie is an old movie that was recommended to me by my sister who is taking up BS in Education Major in Special Education. This is one of their assignments in school and just like her, I was moved by it.

This movie is about the story of Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller. Who wouldn’t know the tandem of those two most inspirational women of all time? I’ve been dying to read or watch a movie about them, especially Helen Keller because I want to know how did they become the two most talked about women in history.

At first, I thought that I will be moved by Helen but I was wrong. It was Anne Sullivan that has really touched my heart. Because of her patience, passion and dedication.

Teaching someone like Helen who is physically challenged was really difficult: physically exhausting and mind-blowing. A person like Helen needs a strong person to understand her and teach her the  things she needs to know about life. Through out the movie, Anne never treated Helen as a student but as her own child. She loved her more than any person could.

One thing I’ve learned, is the importance of discipline to a child. As parents, there are times when you want to indulge your children in every way or any thing that they want; to the point of spoiling them. I’ve realized that saying “no” to some of their “wants” may be the way for them to learn values that they have to know – patience, humility and respect to name a few.

Communication. This is the main gist of this movie. This is the key to a better relationship.

It seem’s like Helen is not the only one who should learn how to communicate.”

That is what Anne said to Helen’s bother and this has ignited his brother to speak up his mind and tell his parents what he really wants.

Anne Sullivan is indeed a Miracle Worker.

Dearest Heart,

dear heartDearest Heart,

I don’t know how to start this letter for you. Maybe because I know that you are vulnerable and I am afraid that I can hurt you – even more. I can’t bear to do that, because I know you had been broken a number of times.

I’ve seen you flourish and mature over time nevertheless, I’ve always seen you tear into pieces time after time.

Aren’t you getting tired of giving your all and in the end, you’d be broken and be left behind?
Why do you always trust like you’ve never been betrayed before?
Where do you get that courage to love all the way like you’ve never been hurt?
How come you still fight for something you are not even sure of?
How do you manage to stay when they have left you all alone?

Heart, why aren’t you listening to me every time I’d say no?
Why do you insist on doing or saying something even if I told you not to?
Why do you keep on beating for the wrong reasons?
When are you going to value yourself?
When are you going to know that you too, are important?

What enrages me right now, is that, you are getting used to defeat.
You confuses me too – most of the time.
You’d get scared and back off. But then, you’d feel bad after.
You’d wish you had not done what you did.

You too are inconsistent.
Heart, please learn to decide what is best for you.
If you are ready, then be it.
If you’re not, wait until you are.

Being with someone isn’t prerequisite to being happy.
Sometimes, it’s ok to back off if you know you are scared to be involved.

But please, don’t just hope forever.
Always remember, if that person doesn’t want to be with you right now,
it’s not about you. It’s about them,
who can’t see your true beauty.

Heart, please remember, someone will save you from these shit.

Someday, you’ll meet him. At the right place. At the right time.

From someone that truly cares

It’s Natural to be Critical About Yourself

 

Instead of looking at other things and trying to aspire to be someone else,we should just be comfortable with who we are and be our best self.

It’s natural to be critical of yourself.

Disappointments in Disguise

Do your bestWhy Shouldn’t We Expect For More

That was an article I wrote a few months back. Mostly dwelled about the difference of expectations and hope.

But today, not only will I delete “expecting for more” but I want to languish expectations wholly in my mind. As they’d always say and have proven as well,

Expectations are disappointments in disguise.

I want to stop expecting anything from anyone anymore – including myself. I already stopped expecting myself to do things I am not good at and at the same time, stopped pushing myself too much. I’d realize that what matters most is doing my very best in everything that I do. Be the BEST that I can be, giving my whole self to every situation and if that “Best” me isn’t enough to other people, it’ll never be my loss anymore.

In dealing with others, I don’t like to expect that they can be someone else and can be that someone I picture in my head. I have to start accepting, that every person is different. There can be similarities, but everyone is unique in their own way.

Expectations spoil surprises.

Some doesn’t like surprises because it can caught them off guard. But those little things can make you smile more and appreciate that very moment – surprise phone call, messages, greetings, gifts, notes; who wouldn’t love them?

Expectations on the other hand, let you create an imaginary situation that may either make you feel good (sometimes) in the end, but most of the time, can disappoint you.

Start looking at yourself the way it is, improve yourself everyday. If you notice something is wrong about you, try to work on it and do not try to become someone else other than who you really are. Appreciate the moment, the people you are with and start living in the present. Give every situation a fresh look and try to peek in a different perspective without prejudice and without expectation.

Life can be so much easier! (and happier!)
