A wise soul once told me, there is always room for self improvement. This is incredibly true. In months like this when the ever changing weather has me so incredibly uninspired, I find myself lost and confused. It is important to use this time to figure myself out.
What would I change about myself? What do I want to do? How could I be better? Consumed by my own thoughts, I am desperate to seek answers. While scouring the pages of Google I stumbled across this self help page, ‘Life Hack’, here there was a comprised list of 42 practical ways to improve yourself. Over the next year I plan to follow this guide, picking up a few ways each month. Now as I said above, there is always room for self improvement…. I am happy with what I have learnt and implemented into my life so far, and that is really the important thing isn’t it… feeling happy with ones self.
Here are a few ways I plan to improve myself over the month of April:
Now the guide asks you to read a book everyday, and for as much as I wish this to be possible it just isn’t. It also mentions some great self help books, which again unless they can also be used as a pillow I just can’t. I am however already an ‘avid’ reader, my bedside table is lost under piles of books (maybe my problem is, is that I’m a hoarder). I read as much as possible and have always found that, for me, getting lost in a good old mystery novel is the perfect ticket to inspire me.
Number 2 out of 42 is to learn a new language. Now although I already have trouble with the English language, and I’m born in England, this is something I have wanted to do for a loooong time. I did once know another language, German actually, back in high school I was in the top of my class in German… but ask me anything now I will reply ‘guten tag’…, that’s all I got. For now I plan to learn French, why you may ask?, because I’m a huge fan of French cinema and I’m sick and tired of having to read subtitles.
Lastly for the month of April, I plan to pick up a new hobby. When it came to this one I was left confused, there are soooo many things that I am bad at. I mean if my hobby could be watching Netflix, I would be great at that, but the thing is it’s already a hobby and I already excel at it. So for a new hobby I plan to pick up cooking. I figured this would be a good hobby to have, not only am I learning a new skill but I might actually be able to serve something other than cheese pasta. Mmmm cheese pasta.
