7 Things To Do For Yourself This Week That Take 10 Minutes
There’s a misconception that investing in yourself and looking after number one has to take hours of your time. Leave those misconceptions behind. It only needs to take around ten minutes of your time to invest in yourself and make a huge impact on your life.
1. Count your blessings
With just ten minutes of gratitude, you can change your life, improve your relationships, and become more positive. With a gratitude journal, it’s so much easier to remind yourself to count your blessings. And rewiring your brain to see the positives will help you see more opportunities in the world around you.
“Count your blessings with gratitude no matter how small or big they are, and stop letting your lacks blindfold you from noticing how blessed that you are.”
2. Start a vision board
Start collecting images that reflect the life you want to live and create the life of your dreams. Don’t just choose photos that reflect the materialistic aspects of the life you want to live, choose themes that help you visualize the person you want to be. You can collect more images every week and then eventually, use your ten minutes to start gluing images on a canvas to remind you of where you want to be.
3. Learn a new skill
Yes, it does only take 10 minutes to learn something new. With a service like Skillshare, you can literally watch a video and learn something new in just ten minutes. There are so many other online course hubs that you can sign up for and learn skills from cooking to coding in literally ten minutes a day. You can actually learn so much, that new languages you’ve been thinking about, a skill you’ve always wanted to develop, the sky is the limit.
4. Build your network
Ten minutes of chatting with someone new is all you need to start off a relationship with them. You can use LinkedIn to find people that you want to network with, or even things like Bumble BFF can be hugely beneficial for meeting people and networking with like-minded women. It’s important to connect with people.
5. Forgive people
All throughout your life you’ve been holding grudges, it probably started in the playground or well before and can affect you throughout your adult life. When you take ten minutes to really focus on forgiving people who’ve wronged you, you’re actually taking the power back from them and allowing yourself to move on and become the best version of yourself. It’s one of the simplest things you can do with ten minutes a day.
6. Spread some kindness
Ten minutes is more than enough time to spread some kindness around. Whether you’re sending a smile to a stranger, buying food for someone, or simply lending motivation to someone who desperately needs it. Being kind will give you a huge mood boost, and spread the feeling around. We need more kindness!
7. Outline your goals for the future
This one is so important, not only will it give you something to work towards, it’ll help you create benchmarks of your progress now and where you are in your life. Outlining your goals takes a few minutes but helps to create a driving force pushing you forward and gives you something to work on. It’s important for finding your purpose and doing what you need to do in life.
