It’s all about how you start your morning.

You need to take the first couple of minutes of each day to nourish your mind, body and soul. Make yourself feel loved and taken care of. Then, and only the will you feel like you can conquer the world.

Here are a couple of things that I usually try to incorporate into my mornings:

1. Start with gratitude.

While still under my blanket, I whisper a little prayer that’s mostly all about how thankful I am for a new day, personal blessings and new opportunities.

2. Good music.

My kind of morning-music is a mix of Gospel and Afro-Pop! 🙂

3. Break a sweat.

I love jogging. But since it’s winter right now, I kinda skip this part. *hides face*

4. Freshen up.

Nothing feels as good as a warm shower in the a.m.

5. Never forget your breakfast.

And lastly, fill your belly with some healthy energy-packed meal. Cereal is always a good idea! 😉

Always be kind.

How To Maximize Your Vacation Days.

ll;p

If you are a full-time student or have a full-time job, then you’ve at one time or the other felt like you need more vacation days. It’s so easy for you to feel like you are always working or studying since you only get a month or two or, if you’re lucky, three months off annually to kick back and relax.

Well, lemme help you make those couple of weeks seem more than just that:

1. Study or work abroad. 

By abroad here, I mean any place that’s not your hometown or even home country. There’s always opportunities to take a course or go for a conference someplace new to you. Grab that. This automatically gives you a chance to explore a new environment either temporarily or long-term.

2. Travel to new destinations.

There are places that we’d love to visit over and over again. But then that restricts us from experiencing what other destinations have to offer. So as much as you love that sandy beach, or that rocky mountain, book yourself a ticket to a fresh new location every once in a while.

3. Maximize your weekends and public holidays.

Use these days to travel to places that are close to where you live and around your country hence saving your vacation days for further destinations.

4. Work from the center outwards.

Explore your hometown first. And the neighbourhood. Then work your way around your country and region because those will be way cheaper to travel to. And I’m pretty sure that there are a bunch of gems close to you that you take for granted. Find out what attracts tourists to the place you live and then go find out why. 🙂

5. Plan out each vacation day.

Having an itinerary helps you organise your time. Also, having a bucket list for each town/city prior to your visit enables you to make the most of your time there.

Always be kind.
