I feel truly blessed to be able to wake up healthy with true love, great family and amazing friends. I am my own boss and get to run the days instead of letting the days run me. Today I turned 31 and decided to just relax. Mentally, its been a tough couple of months adjusting to a lot of new things in life so I needed a break.
The day started with an amazingly delicious Carrot Cake on the bed and a well needed Thai Massage (thank you Lilli who arranged all of this). Then I just relaxed and did nothing but eating, drinking coffee and enjoying a beach walk in Venice.
I was so relaxed and realized that I need to do this more often.
Why do we wait to our birthday to celebrate life?
Isn't it enough being healthy, having a great friend or to celebrate a small victory?
Today I will give you 3 small tips that you can use to zoom out and actually enjoy life more.
3 Tips To Celebrate More In Life
Tip #1: Go Offline
The best thing I did today was to don't check my email, don't go on Instagram and Facebook. Instead of looking down (on my phone) I was looking up and was amazed of what I saw. I saw interesting people, smiles, laughter, birds, waves and even the clouds and the blue sky. As an entrepreneur the borders between work and leisure are non-existent if you don't create them yourself. By resting you will perform better and enjoy life more.
Tip #2: Celebrate at least one small victory every day
Today I turned 31. But make no mistake I am far from done. I have a lot to do in this world before I kick the bucket. I bet you are pretty similar to me, you want to do a lot of things and accomplish some big goals. That's great, but and this is a BIG BUT =)! Celebrate every day. Let's say you have a businesses, enjoy the small things (even though you are looking for bigger things). If your son or daughter almost speak their first word, celebrate that. No moment is guaranteed in life and make sure to acknowledge that and celebrate a small (or big) victory every day.
Tip #3: Recovery time is power time
Some people say that they don't have time to rest and enjoy. Take at least one day every week to reload you batteries. Life is not a sprint, it is a marathon and to be able to perform your body needs rest. Treat your body like a temple and know that the rest will make you perform better when its time.
Go out and celebrate!
