If you’re dying to make some major changes in your life but don’t know where to start, then worry not because we are here to help. It’s so easy to get carried away with the fast pace of life in the 21st century, and sometimes, all we need are a few reminders to come back to the present moment and enjoy the now.

Here is a five-day challenge you can follow if you’d like to feel more grounded and present in the moment.

Wake Up Earlier

By waking up just one hour earlier for a week, you will find that you have some extra time to slow down and practice a few grounding exercises.

Try to avoid going on your mobile device or watching TV and use this time to practice a few mindful activities such as deep breathing, meditation, or simply writing down your goals for the months and years to come or even just your intentions for the day ahead.

Do More Journaling

For the next week, try to journal a little bit each day.

There are no rules with this practice, and you can simply just write whatever comes to mind or how you are feeling at this stage of life. You can even write down the struggles or resentments that you feel you need to get off of your chest. Journaling has a myriad of benefits, including reducing stress and processing emotions, to name a few.

Become More Curious

One of the most wonderful things in life is the fact that we can keep on learning new things for the rest of our days. It’s so easy to just put the TV on in the evenings, but we could benefit so much more from using this time to learn something new.

We’re not saying you need to change professions or buy into new and expensive crafts. There are tons of ways to learn new things, and they don’t have to cost anything. From reading new books to listening to podcasts and even learning new languages. There are so many things out there to be learned, and they don’t have to cost you a dime, either.

We spend so much time in our living spaces, so if we want to keep our sanity in check, it’s best to keep our homes tidy and organized. It will in any way be difficult to change your life if you can’t manage to sort out the areas where most of your living takes place.

Get Moving

Moving your body has so many physical and mental benefits that you can’t expect to change your life if you’re not at least going to try to get moving. We’re not saying you have to sign up for the gym or buy expensive workout equipment.

It’s possible to reap many benefits just from doing a 10 to 15-minute walk outside. If it’s raining, then you could always just rock out to a few of your favorite songs.

One could say that bathrooms are equal parts utility and sanctuary. Essentially, they’re the place where you can light a candle and wind down from a long day, but at the same time, it’s the exact spot where most of your grooming and getting ready for your day (or bed) happens. In terms of aesthetics, we do want our bathrooms to feel welcoming and serene, but, at the same time, they need to be functional.

The home design trends that are so popular today will be out of style tomorrow. The “in” styles usually start at the designer level before trickling down to the public. It’s helpful to look ahead at the next trends when having work done for your home. What’s in today among the public may already be on its way out and no longer be used by designers.
