Well. I am going to be honest with you, beloved friends and followers. I think it is time for a change. My blog as it is now is a bit too less organized and too unstructured. Furthermore, I decided to only write in English in the future in order to give you more interesting facts about my life and some (hopefully) good advice.
In the last couple of weeks I asked myself: How can I get a grip? Not only when it comes to writing blog entries, but also to push yourself without any pressure from uni or work.
In fact, it is hard, because everything around you tries to steal your attention.
Get up early.
Of course you want to party on the weekend or relax in bed all day long, because you are too tired to get up. However, things won't get done. First of all, you need to force yourself and put your phone in the kitchen. So when the alarm turns on, you need to walk and are hopefully still alive.
Just think of all the people in your neighboorhood, your friends or your family, who are still in bed. But you are productive and try to get the best out of the day.
What I try to do: work off 10 things till 10 am.
For instance, get ready, iron the cloths, tidy up. Very simple things, that are easily forgotten.
After this I reward myself through ticking of points, reading an interesting article and drink a cup of coffee. Every second day I try to go for a run to clear my head - For a lot of people this sounds insane. If you are not into sports, just do something else that relaxes you instead.
Still no Motivation for the day?
Watch a documentary or a small video to push yourself. There is nothing more annoying than the fact that people (your age) have more discipline and success than you.
Try to give yourself 30 min alone. With or without music.
For me it is inalienable to do it on a regular basis. Try to think about yourself, who you are and what you want to become. There are people who know others better than themselves.
Moreover, ask questions
What was the last thing you wanted to do so badly, but never had the time or the strength to do it?
Just do it. Start something. Join a community, get engaged with things.
In the first moments and maybe days this is going to be hard and you need discipline. But it is the same as for example sports:
When you are used to it and you doing it on a regular basis, it is just going to be part of your existence.
It all happens in your head and this has an impact on your attitude towards the world and your life.
