Enjoy life more! A quote from Deepak Chopra says: The future is a mystery, the past is history, NOW is a gift, that’s why it’s called the present.
Going on that note, I recommend treating your present as a gift. Here are 5 ways you can enjoy that gift of life now!
- Do you love television/movies? Binge-watch your favorites. Do it alone or invite friends/family over. Ask everyone to bring some favorite food to share if they can.
- Enjoy your interior space. Redecorate. Maybe bring out some things you’ve put away and exchange them with what’s been on the shelf. I’ve decorated my fireplace mantle with each passing holiday! Repair what you dearly need to be repaired. Throw out clutter.
- Enjoy your exterior space. This means going for a walk whether it’s in your yard or down the street. Develop a new habit like buying something small at your corner store every day. When I was in Glasgow, Scotland for a week, I went into the convenience store around the corner from my B&B and bought the local newspaper and a soda. It was the same every day, but I met the shopkeeper and talked to a gentleman walking his Scottish Terrier who told me that the local museum I intended to visit was closed for repairs. He recommended other places of interest.
- Create a sacred space even if it is a chair, small cabinet or desk, and a light. Make it suitable for writing, artwork, crocheting, knitting, quilting, coloring, or a reading nook where you keep your current books and magazines.
- Do something new. Some people learn a new word from the dictionary every day. Take an online class. Watch a documentary. Plant flower seeds in cups!
Have fun with this! Stay safe, my friends! Keep warm.
