When I first thought about minimalism, I thought it was a pretty neat concept. I thought it was about possessing very little but making the most of everything you got. The pictures always seemed so clean and neat… also very little. To me, minimalism is what hones the idea of keeping the things that hold importance and value and it’s one of the definitions of the term that I follow:
So being that yesterday was officially day one of my redundancy, it doesn't count. This was all brought on by the COVID-19 strain of Coronavirus.
We have a crisis of epic proportions on our hands. Humanity is under siege like never before. Our very ways of living are under threat.
So, I am one of the lucky ones you could say with this. My work has made it so that I am working in self-isolation. Now to be clear, I do not feel sick, I have been tested and am negative for the COVID-19 virus, but I am still isolating myself and it is a choice. I may be one of the 97% who will be fine even in getting this virus as I am young and healthy and have a strong immune system. But I am doing this for the elderly, for people’s grandparents and old family members who may not be so lucky.
In today’s fast-paced world, most people are taking health for granted. Nobody seems to value their health until the illness hits or the body is too tired to do anything. This sort of behavior sends an open invitation to many ailments and diseases. So, it becomes extremely important to understand that nothing in life can be more valuable than health itself for enjoying life at its best.
On November 2011, I was finishing my first semester at Drexel University, and I decided to celebrate with a group of friends, eating brunch at a restaurant near Locust Square. We were eating like nonstop like it was the Last Supper, just enjoying the moment that classes were over. As we walked out, we heard a lot of commotion near the walking path of Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Hard work is the key to success in every field of life. To make anything successful, you need to work on it with great passion, to make it worth it. Running a successful business and managing everything is very tiring and stressful for both newbies and professionals. It is true that to make your business successful, you need to give in your time and efforts, but entrepreneurs forget to take care of their health. In the long run, it will be a disadvantage as they will miss workdays because of illness. It is very necessary to take care of your health to run your business successfully.
Wowee – what a week! I’m not naïve enough to believe this prep was going to come without challenges; I knew life would throw some stuff at me because that’s what it does, I didn’t expect it to come so quickly though. I’ve said it a thousand times, and I’ll say it until the end of time, with whatever you are doing, you have to know your ‘why’.
There are two types of people in the world: the risers, who hit the ground running at the first whisper of their alarm clock, and the snoozers, who prefer to hit their favorite button a few times as they slowly wind themselves up for the day. I am a riser. I always have been. For me, mornings are delightful, the rising sun a source of boundless energy and optimism. My boyfriend on the other hand is a maximum snoozer. He has a tendency to delay the inevitable moment of awakening to the last possible moment, working his alarm to the point of exhaustion, when the whispers become shrieks so loud that I wonder if he is the only one in the neighborhood left to acknowledge them. I often give him a hard time for this lifestyle choice he seems so attached to but, if I’m being honest, mornings can actually be a struggle for me too, albeit in a different way.
Ok so the weekend is here and it’s going to become increasingly harder to maintain that healthy habit and a lot of times, on the weekends at least, we tend to pick up an extra bad one. I know the voices in your head are telling you, “one, day, one day won’t make a difference.”
