Making better days

We only have a finite amount of days in the world, how do you make the most of every day?

My favourite days don’t necessarily have a routine but they do tend to include all these things:

Making time for curiosity and inspiration

This one is integral for me, it can be reading, watching, listening, talking or doing something that inspires. Anything where I can be curious and explore something new, interesting or deep.

Making time for reflection and introspection

I try not to encourage overthinking in myself but I do like to reflect on the day and think what did I learn today. Sometimes Ali and I do what three things we’re grateful for from the day, its a fun way to find nice things even on the hardest or most frustrating of days.

Make time for play and fun

This is a must! A day without playing is a dull day indeed. Playing could be anything that feels fun, moves the body, is creative and perhaps brings laughter or a surge of energy. Silliness isn’t just for kids!

Make time for nothing

I wrote another post on this, but making time to relax, be idle and not be having to move anywhere or think about anything, really helps me centre myself. It’s where new ideas come and where peace resides.

Getting all of these into one day makes the best days, but a day with just one of them in is still better than none at all.

I’m curious, what do you need to have the best day?
