As a self-proclaimed addict of self-improvement, I am always on the lookout for new studies, methods, or tools to help me reach my fullest potential (or at least just not feel like an unproductive zombie throughout the day). So when I came across an The Science of Success podcast, all about the importance of timing and the value of taking mental and physical breaks throughout the day, I was sold.
We all can't anticipate for our vacations or retirement. I'm sure all of us are hard workers and push ourselves every day. That's why we look forward to days of rest and relaxation. Don't get me wrong, I love vacations and relaxing like the next person. It's just that my thought process was a little different this time around.
It’s the holiday season and time for us to make New Year’s resolutions and set goals for the year ahead in order to improve our health, business, relationships, and our overall well-being. Have you ever made New Year’s resolutions a bit too ambitious, just to give up somewhere around February? Now let’s skip on those crazy big bites we might struggle to chew on, like writing a book or traveling the world, and let’s talk about resolutions you can make to live a better and healthier life.
I started suffering from insomnia around January of this year. I had a lot of personal things going on (going through a tough break up) and sleep became scarce. Unfortunately, this followed me to Florida. I love living in Florida, and my mental health has been in such a good place, but I just couldn’t seem to shake the insomnia. I’m learning to live with it pretty well, though. As long as I can find some way to keep myself occupied during a bad bout, eventually sleep finds me and I sleep for as much time as I can before I have to start my day. I’ve also gotten pretty good at functioning on little sleep and catching up whenever I can.
Instead of spending endless hours watching TV, scrolling social media try a few of these calming artistic activities that will clear your mind and relax your busy brain. Sometimes it’s nice to turn off the wi-fi and enjoy the company of me, myself and I.

Living with Less (Minimalism)
Today it seems everything is done over your cellphone. Many times I come across a website that requires a verification code through a text, to which I sigh and exit the page. I live down a dead-end road with my only contact points being the internet and a house phone. Cell phones are now almost required to survive in the modern age. This can be very troubling for those who choose to live without one.
You often hear the phrase “declutter your life” tossed around when listing ways on how people can be more creative, less stressed, and more organized. It does help in all these aspects of our lives but many of us struggle to achieve this because we are not clear on exactly how to proceed. Clutter is unnecessary and can stifle our ability to function at our highest capacity. Clutter is chaos and disorganization. It is what happens when there is mindless and continual accumulation without making room or organizing things in a way that adds value to our lives. Clutter does not only exist in the form of objects and possessions. Our social lives, physical spaces, relationships, and nutrition can be cluttered. We often do not realize this because, after a while, we become one with our environment. We adapt to the conditions around us and often times become comfortable or trapped in a quagmire of our own making. Here are some tips on how to begin creating space for the things that matter.
