You know we love the simple things here at Fittbe. So, we’ve come up with a quick list for you of ways to simplify your life. When you really make these a priority, you’ll be amazed at how much head space you free up for fun and enriching things that you love, like Hygge coziness, cooking and baking, barre and pilates, painting? Whatever those passions may be!
Declutter paper. Take it online you guys!
Set reminders in your phone or on your computer for things you know you need to remember. Set your bills on autopay and keep a spreadsheet of them. Then, unsubscribe from receiving notifications by mail. All those mailers do is create clutter in your home, and eventually fill your recycle bin. When I do get something I need in paper form, I usually snap a pic of it and keep it in one secure folder. Then, I make sure to audit this folder often!
Keep up your fitness and health.
Workout at least 3 times a week! Balance with different types of exercise, or an all in one balanced program like Pilates or Barre. Remind yourself that you are the type of person who enjoys exercise and healthy behaviors. Affirmations are so powerful, and doing so will help you to form great habits that will support you in a big way!
Put yourself first. We all know that term “you can’t pour from an empty cup,” but do we really put it into action?
You guys… as my sister always says… “we must!” take care of yourself first because that frees you up to attend to others. This has to be done in a “guilt free” way. Really look after yourself. Don’t skip meals, go with your gut, if you feel to busy, turn down some invitations or engagements. It is ALL ok!
Do an hour of tidying a day.
When you tidy up, you immediately feel a great feeling of productivity. Turn on some music you love while you do it and enjoy making your space somewhere you love to dwell!
Wear (and keep) clothes that fit well and make you feel great! Just because it may have value, doesn’t mean it has value to you right now.
Set a morning routine that you look forward to.
This morning routine might include a hot shower, a steaming cup of coffee, luxurions stretching. Maybe even getting up a half hour earlier so you have some quiet time to enjoy yourself
Declutter your mind.
If it’s not actionable and important for the present, let it go, let it go, let it go!
Enjoy the now.
There’s never been a better time to bring your attention to what is right in front of you! Focus on your senses. See the beauty around you.
Foster Good Relationships!
Put time into good relationships and notice how they come back to you. Don’t put time into unproductive, unfulfilling or negative relationships. Remember, number 3. Look after yourself.
Make time for your hobbies.
If you need too set an alarm to make sure you spend time on your hobby, do it! If you want to practice piano because you haven’t since you were 15, do it! If you want to learn to play a sport, or a game, go for it. Hobbies are important for fueling your creativity and happiness.
