“Is it seriously time for me to get up right now? How is it already the morning. I don’t know if I have the energy to be alive today.”
Let me tell you a story about my life two years ago. Every morning my alarm would go off and I would hit the snooze button at least four times. After finally deciding it was time I wake up, I’d lay in bed for a couple minutes staring at the ceiling thinking something along the lines of the above quote.
After that, I’d check my phone for ten minutes reading things that didn’t matter. Finally, I’d look at the clock and realize I had to leave for work in fifteen minutes and wonder how the hell time had gone by so quickly. I’d rush around trying to make sure I didn’t forget anything and head off to work.
The rest of my day at work was pretty similar. Rushing around wondering where all my time had gone and why I was so tired.
When I got home from work I’d watch TV for a few hours, eat a piece of toast or some nacho chips for dinner, and then lay in bed and watch TV for a few more hours until I could finally fall asleep. Because by then, I wasn’t tired.
Only to repeat it all over again the next day.Does this sound similar to your day at all? Do you spend a lot of time wondering why you feel so tired and crappy?
I spent a lot of time wondering that and I finally decided to do something about it. Now, I wake up before my alarm goes off, jump out of bed, make myself a delicious breakfast, and have time to hang out a little bit before I go to work.
Every other part of my life has transformed as well but I’ll spare you the details.
So how did I do it? Well, if you’ve been reading this blog a while…I’m sure you have some idea. But I’ve managed to sum up my philosophy in three words.
Study, Savor, Simplify
A while back, I decided to make a shift in the way I write blog posts. Maybe you read about it in the post where I introduced it or maybe you’ve noticed a change in titles. Either way, I never fully explained what these three words mean to me and how to apply them to your health.
In the coming weeks, I’m going to post about these three words, what they mean to me, and how you can apply them to your own life to improve your spiritual and physical health.
These posts will essentially sum up my entire blog so you won’t want to miss it! If you aren’t signed up for my Email List you’ll want to get on that to make sure you don’t miss a post in the series. Or you can always follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest because I always post my newest stuff on there, as well.
