Those who are actively trying to better themselves - whether through counseling, (self help) books, personal coaches, you name it - are probably aware of true change starting with changing (small) habits in your (daily) life. One of the habits I try to incorporate into my life is to be efficient with my energy and time.
Believe it or not, I'm a bit of a scatter brain and my mind wanders off easily from one topic to the other. This also happens when I'm in conversation and I start to think ahead of possible (negative) outcomes, which could be beneficial in certain situations, especially if it helps to plan ahead. But sometimes it stands in the way of me being efficient, particularly when I'm busy doing a task and something else pops up into mind, which makes me forget what I'm doing or should be doing at the moment.
That's why I'm conscientiously making an effort to plan beforehand what I should be doing, so that I don't have to repeat it again. I start small at home - especially in the kitchen - by mapping out what I will do in which section and when and what I could take with me, so that I don't have to return and by saving some energy in the process. Same goes for when I arrive from buying groceries and me trying to carry as much as I could inside. What it boils down to is me being efficient, so that I have to spend less energy and effort.
That's what I was trying to do in the picture, when we were on vacation at Menimi Eco resort. I believe that our group traveled with the most luggage of the whole party, that needed to be carried all the way to the lodges. So we all gave a helping hand and knowing me I grabbed the most that I could, so that I didn't have to return to the pier. I was also hungry from the trip 😅, but don't tell anyone 🙈.
And to wrap up this story of starting with small habits, I would like to share Gentleman's song Changes with you. He sings about doing your best in bringing positive change into your life. We have the ability to change thanks to the most High, if we only look into ourselves, have faith and trust.
