I’m on a Water Diet!

Over the past two months, I have been consuming what I consider to be an unhealthy amount of sugar for me and my body. When I consume too much sugar my body tells me by producing external results. One of those results being pimples! As annoying as pimples are, they are good in letting you know what is happening internally. This month I decided to go on a water diet meaning I will be consuming only water as a beverage. I am doing this in order to get my skin clear but also drinking only water is a good way to flush toxins out of your body.  I would be lying if I said I didn’t already fail, but I am determined to stay committed and continue my water diet through the month of June. I will be sure to keep everyone updated on my results and progress through the next month!

You are not Alone

Society places so much pressure on us to be perfect and live the perfect life. Nobody has the perfect life because nobody is perfect. Realizing that everyone has faults and everybody goes through tough times, will make you realize that you are not alone. For every situation you have faced or are going through, there is someone in this world who has gone through the exact same thing. Asking questions or confiding in someone during a time in which you feel alone can make you feel better. Some of the best therapy is to talk through your harvested energy. Through talking to someone, you may learn something about them you never knew and perhaps discover that they went through the same situation as you. As humans, we think we are different but we are more alike than we’ll ever know. We are made up of flesh and bones and though not everyone may look the same, we have some of the same experiences. When going through life, never think you are in it alone. Everyone goes through things, don’t let the exterior fool you into thinking otherwise.

The Lazy Effect

Lack of motivation can be the most frustrating thing in the world. You want to be productive yet your body is telling you to stay put. Your mind has ideas and plans it wants to accomplish, but the will to get it done just isn’t there. I too, struggle with this and I call it the Lazy Effect. I often wonder if it’s because I am lazy or my body is telling me to rest. I have days where I know I should be more productive than I am but also don’t make the effort to change anything about that. A big part of that comes from the trust I have within myself. Knowing that I can relax for a day or two without being productive and things will be fine lessens the stress I feel. However, it doesn’t stop the guilt. Being lazy is fun at times, yet you end up feeling terrible about yourself in the end. I wonder if we should try to do one productive thing a day or if it’s simply ok to just sit back and do nothing. Sure society makes us feel bad, but if being “lazy” is what’s best for the betterment of our mental stability, maybe we shouldn’t feel stressed after all.

Not enough time

We all go through life thinking their are not enough hours in the day. I feel that all too often during a time when I have the most time I may ever have again. Prioritizing what needs to be in your day can help in fixing the “not enough time” problem. I was once told that when you feel there isn’t enough time, you make time; You especially make time for things that are important. Whenever you feel like there may not be enough hours in your day, set a schedule. I often find that setting a schedule helps me stay balanced and completing what needs to be done. Waking up early and going to bed early are also things that help me stay most productive. The saying “the early bird catches the worm” works for those willing to catch the worm. So, what are you willing to do to allow more flexibility in your life? That, remains up to you.

Beauty in the Struggle

Why is it that we always expect our lives to be perfect wihtout acknowledging are hardships? Those we idolize didn’t always have it easy, yet most times we think if we copy our idols, somehow we think we can get to the top faster than they did. The idea that there is beauty in the success, can be false. Yes, it is great to bask in your hard work and have people admire your accomplishments but I believe it is always better to appreciate the struggle before the success. Whether you believe it or not, every struggle has helped you to be a better person or to get where you are today. Struggle can make you stronger, work harder, and grow as a human being. Although, we never think so in the moment, there is beauty in the struggle.

Give yourself something

Lately, I have been thinking of more ways to make my life more exciting, I am a person that needs change because it bring excitement. When there is nothing to look forward to, I can get bored so, I look for things that will add something different to my life. I believe you should always make an effort to give yourself something to look forward to. This could be treating yourself to a spa day, buying a new book, getting a new hair-do, or seeing a new movie. Planning different activities that bring you excitement can boost your momentum and make you happy. It also may give you a new hobby, or help you find new interests you didn’t know you would like. Being spontaneous about the activites you choose to do can also bring great pleasure especially thinking your day would be ordinary.  Giving yourself something to look forward to can bring about new changes, so give it a try!
