Day 32

What I love the most about reading, is that it can let your mind wonder into a new place, perhaps a place where you have dream of going to. Or perhaps the book you are reading, is inspiring you to be a better person, or perhaps you’re reading a book to help you learn a new language. Whatever your reason as to why you love reading books may be, it’s important to make an effort to read every day. Whether you make 15 minutes, or a half hour to read a day, you will begin to notice the amazing effects of reading. Your vocabulary might strengthen, because you may have learned new words, or phrases from your books. Your problem solving skills will improve as well.

I love reading because right now, there are so many travel restrictions where I am not able to travel to anywhere I desire. Mind you I wouldn’t really feel comfortable to travel to somewhere new, in the middle of this pandemic. But I love being able to use my imagination to discover something new.

Today, I will try to read every day. It can have a lot of benefits on our brain, and lifestyle. Reading can help heighten our imagination. I will read and use my imagination to help me escape with what I am currently dealing with. Reading is like feeding your brain, mind and soul. Today, I will make an effort to read when I can.

Peach Ginger and Dandelion Tea

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s another edition of Tea Tuesday! Today’s tea is Peach Ginger with Dandelion. It is infused with vitamin B6, which helps boosts your metabolism. It has other benefits such as prevents cancer, helps unclog arteries, helps with eye diseases, and promotes brain health.

This tea is a herbal tea, with no caffeine. It is super healthy, too. What I like is that you can taste more of the peach, and the ginger isn’t too powerful.

Here is my mug, well actually it’s a tea cup, for the day. What I love about this tea cup, is that it is yellow, which is my favourite colour. I love the flowers, and how elegant it is. It reminds me of a tea cup from Alice In Wonderland, or a tea cup from Great Grandma.

Day Seven

I feel like what will help me create better results about achieving goals is by writing a blog post about my achievements every seven days. Every month I will be working on new resolutions.

In the past seven days I was able to keep up with some of my resolutions. Although one of my hardest resolution to do was going to bed early and creating a calming oasis before I went to sleep. I have been on my phone playing games or watching TV. The way I want to fall asleep is by tiding up a bit, writing in a journal, preparing a Most Important Tasks (it is a list of three things that I want to achieve before I leave the house) and then by reading for a bit Then say good night and I love you to my loved ones.

But on the positive I was able to get on the right track with eating better. I now drink tea with cinnamon and honey instead of sugar. My boyfriend and I used to add two teaspoons of sugar which definitely added up with all of the cups of tea we would have throughout the day. I read that consuming honey and cinnamon there are several of health benefits – strengthens immune system, helps with weight loss, boosts memory and energy as well as other health benefits.

I stretched this morning which is good because I stopped stretching for the longest time.

I am working on decluttering and getting rid of the things I no longer need. Last night I tidied up a bit before I went to bed. I’m slowly starting to do that more often that way I can start my morning more serenely.

I am also to change myself without wholly changing myself. I often say; “It’s okay.” after someone has said or did something hurtful to me. The same goes for when someone asks me if there’s anything wrong and I sometimes say; “Nothing.” even when there is something wrong. Some of the times it isn’t okay it’s just something I say to either deal with it on my own or because I feel talking about it would make the other party feel guilty about it. This is really something I am on working on because I have been saying that for almost the past two years now. It’s part of my codependent nature – which is something else that I am trying to work on. But I figured it would be best if I do it in baby steps.

So far, I  feel like I am on the right track but I just need to focus on my goals and not let distractions get in the way of my accomplishments.
