FOUR THINGS YOU SHOULD DO MORE…
FOUR THINGS YOU SHOULD DO MORE OFTEN!
- SPEND LESS TIME LOOKING AT SCREENS
OK, so this isn’t actually something you should do more, its something that you should do less. I could of course just re-word it to: spend more time, not being on your phone or something like that, but ultimately the message is the same. Put down your electronic devise, look up! I think its so sad, going for dinner with the girls, and every 10 minutes someone is looking at their phone. Just don’t, in moderation guys. MODERATION. Stop hiding in the pretend world of electronics, of edited photographs and dull conversations dragged out over text. Life is still happening whilst you’re looking at your smart phone, or watching your second hour of BORING television. screens, screens, screens.(yes mum, you too!)
- GET OUTDOORS, ENJOY MORE NATURE
weather permitting (I usually live in the U.K) we like to eat outdoors!
go for walk in the forest, sit outside in the garden.. hey even have dinner in the garden, or breakfast or anything. Take your shoes off and do handstands and cartwheels in the grass. Make a daisy chain, go camping with your best friend, go to the beach, build a tree house (ok, that might be a bit far fetched for your average working girl) but you get the message. Being in the fresh air is healthy, and fun so do it more!
3. DO SOMETHING NEW
Life drawing art class
I recently went to a live drawing class with my family, completely new to me, and to all of us. And great fun! The experience inspired creativity in us all. Try a new class, or start a friendship with a stranger. Just do something that put you a tip-toe or more out of your comfort zone, rather than spending another saturday night in the same pub, with the same people and the same problems and conversations.
its a humbling way to expand your mind. novels not magazines, you might even just enjoy it.
Ofcourse there are hundreds of things we should do more, or that I think everyone should do more including: SMILE MORE, ENJOY MORE, HELP MORE!! (give a homeless person some lunch? help out in your local animal shelter? chat to a friend who needs a friend?) but I decided only to write four.
