- How to reset your goals
We are technically in the middle of the year. The excitement, the joy of new resolutions might have simmer down at this point. The priority these goals had then might have subsided with new experiences gained. Hence, in this post we talk about how to refresh your goals for the next six months. These are what we have been practising and they seem to be working for us. So thought why not share it with you too! 1.Categorical resetting: Divide your goals into various aspects of your life - Social, financial, personal, career, relationships etc. Plan these categories for each month. This will ease you by lowering down the number of tasks and will help you stay motivated. 2. Routine mapping: At the beginning of the year, you might have made an ideal "IT Person" routine. From waking up at 5 AM to losing weight in 3 months! We all make great plans. We made too! Are we sticking to it ? Might not be. But we are getting there. How do you do it ? Take a paper and write down what you want your day to look like. be very precise. Put it down like an algorithm. Keep it in front of your vision to be constantly reminded. Guilt trip yourself. 3. Plan by quality not by quantity: We tend to plan by time blocking our day. We suggest you to plan by tasks with prescribed time. Our usual tendency is to create a time table i.e 8-8:30 (workout), 8:30-9:00 (reading). This time blocking can make you more focused on the time spent rather than the quality of time spent. Instead, set a list of tasks for the day and a prescribed time. Ex: I shall read for 30 minutes everyday. I shall workout for 60 minutes everyday. 4. Journal everyday: The need to journal your thoughts goes much deeper than you realise. As someone with whose gone through therapy, we understand how effective dumping your thoughts can be. This is an experience that we cannot describe. It needs to be felt. Write down your worries, achievements, failures and even the silliest jokes.
- Self care activities for all
Self care though today is a much used term, the idea of materialistic self care is over hyped. The thought that you need certain services to experience care is quite exaggerated. A spa day, a self date or a luxury purchase sounds all boojie and fancy. But is this idea of selfcare affordable and accessible to all ? Definitely not.Do they have an impact? An instant one. Here are few self care activities that you can do everyday without burning a hole in your pocket and are sustainable practises. #1: Take 5 minutes to decompress everyday. Put your phone away for 5 minutes. Sit down and observe your thoughts. Write them down. This brings your certain clarity of thought. #2: Move for atleast 30 minutes everyday. You don't need HIIT workout or circuit training for this. All you need is to simply walk , dance or jog. Whatever suits your body. You don't have to do it all at once. Do it intervals through the day. Physical movement releases endorphins that help your mood. #3: Read everyday Reading is a low dopamine activity that helps in maintaining the dopamine sensitivity . Since a majority of activities from playing game to watching movies include high dopamine production, its essential to balance it out. At the same time, books help you with a better imagination and a wider perspective from an expert. Set a time to read, not the pages you need to complete. #4: Journal your mind Dump your mind, Do creative journaling, write a letter to someone, make a gratitude list . Totally upto you. Set a time and fill your heart out!
- Hacks for a productive life
All of us has 24 hours in day. It all depends on how you utilise it. Being busy doesn't necessarily mean that you are being productive. Productivity has nothing to do with working for hours long. Ever wondered how giants and geniuses do it? Here are 7 hacks that can help you being productive. #1 : Categorize your tasks for the day When you know where not to spend your time, You can focus your energy on the required ones. Categorize them as : Important but not urgent, Important and urgent, Not Important but urgent, Not Important and not urgent. #2 : Procrastinate productively You know that feeling one gets after scrolling for an hour aimlessly browsing through Instagram reels? Yeah, quite a guilty one. Right? So if you want to procrastinate, do it in a productive way. Look for something that doesn’t have to do with your work, so your mind can relax. My particular favourites are new books or organization videos. Do something exciting that’s outside of what you would usually do -- for instance, check out a DIY youtube tutorial or read the finance column in a newspaper. Set a tiny goal for what you want to get done with your procrastination time and you’ll feel energized and focused afterwards. #3: Do the easiest task first What you do in the morning will likely set up your flow for the rest of the day. If you have trouble starting out, you can start your workday with the easiest tasks first. This way you are able to tick some items off of your to-do list and build a flow. You can then gradually move onto the not-so-easy tasks. #4: Group Similar Tasks Batch similar tasks so you can complete them with the same zone of mind. This will make your work progress smoothly and help you do more in less time. #5: Identify the ‘Why’ Behind Your Job Ask yourself why you chose to go into the field that you did. Make sure to keep those reasons in your mind while working so you stay motivated to be productive and successful in your job. #6: Put your phone on DND mode In this era of smart phone and social media, we often tend to get distracted by the notifications and buzzing. Put your phone on DND mode and away from the space you are working. Treat your to social media break only after you complete the set goal. #7: Set one goal for a day Do not break your goal into smaller tasks as that can overwhelm your brain into thinking you have lot of stuff to do. Instead on one single goal for the entire day.
