One of the first few things to do – if you’d like to take your blogging seriously – is to purchase a domain name.
What is a domain name and why do you need it?
Oh, and why is it better to have a domain name purchased separately from your web host?
I address all that in this post. Come on in!
If you’ve been into the Law of Attraction (LOA) long enough, you’d have come across articles on the net written by people bemoaning the usefulness and authenticity of the Law of Attraction and how it doesn’t work for them, thus it’s all hogwash.
Well, I was one of them. Once upon a time.
I first discovered LOA back in 2012 when I chanced upon The Secret (both the movie and the book). That led me to Abraham Hicks’ work (whom I adore and follow the most now) and a deeper exploration of the LOA and spiritual field.
I would write up affirmations, create vision boards and use all sorts of LOA ‘tools’ to get what I wanted.
Sent out my messages to the universe and then waited and waited to see if I got anything back.
And did I get everything that I wanted?
No I didn’t.
At that time I was so frustrated and angry. Declaring the LOA a bunch of nonsense, I discarded it from my life. Fast forward to 2017, and through various other spiritual paths (meditation, crystals, chakras etc), I found myself with a renewed interest in LOA teachings.
This time around, I delved into the teachings with an open mind and greater sincerity to apply the methods to my life.
And I’ve finally come to an understanding of its teachings, what it really is about and how to apply it to your life.
So in this, I am going to reveal the reasons why LOA did not work for me back then and why it might not be working for you right now.
Let’s dive in!
Some of the best night-time habits help you do several things:
- Signal to your brain that it’s time to unwind and get ready for bed
- Put you in a relaxed mood so that sleep comes easily
- Prepare for the next day
If your pre bed-time routine consist of falling asleep on the couch watching netflix and then waking up at 2am to wash up before really going to bed… then, um, sorry to break it to you, but you’re probably getting it wrong.
Do you have morning habits? What does it look like?
Wait, before we even talk about that – how do you FEEL when you get up in the morning?
Are you usually snoozing your alarm too many times and scrambling to get things done before rushing out of the house?
Want to know how to start our mornings feeling fresh, positive and enthusiastic and ready to slay the day?
The answer lies in having a an effective, productive and amazing morning routine. A morning routine consisting of effective habits that ensure you start the day right.
Do you know what does it take to be rich? Do you have a habit of saving money or do you spend everything you earn?
Financial planning, setting financial goals, finding the right insurance plans, investing…Do you know how to go about all that?
Actually, why didn’t the schools teach us all these?
Anyway. If you’ve read up on millionaires and their lifestyles, you will notice that many of them – barring being born with a Golden spoon in their mouths! – actually have cultivated great financial habits since they were younger.
Many of them started taking an interest in financial planning or searching up investment in their 20s or even earlier.
But most of us in our 20s are usually saddled up with student loan debt, aren’t in high-income jobs (yet!) and have no idea what to do with whatever money we’ve saved.
Lots of 20 somethings are also all like “I’ve just started tasting financial freedom, so, YOLO, I’ll spend my money on whatever I want”.
Which is great, I’m all about spending money on experiences. But the 20s is also a great time to lay the groundwork for good financial habits.
Stumped and not sure how to begin? Here are 5 tips to get you started. (more…)
If I asked you to sum up your 20s in one word – what word would you pick?
For me, the 20s = Navigation. Transitions would be another word.
There’s just so many things going on – trying to find yourself, your own identity, how that matches up to the rest of the world. Peer pressure, societal influences… Romance, relationships, figuring out what you want in a partner, breakups… Death, weddings… Career, what’s an ideal career. Finances – savings, should you start investing… Travels.
SO. MANY. THINGS. TO. FIGURE. OUT.
It’s probably also the best time in your life – health-wise and looks-wise. All the late nights, parties and copious amounts of alcohol and junk food probably won’t have any effect on your waistline or your looks – yet!
I turned 29 recently. It will be the last year of my 20s before I move on to the next decade and a whole new phase of life.
I get pretty nostalgic about things like that. And as I look back on the 10 years gone by, there were all sorts of memories – happy ones but lots of regrets as well.
So I’ve compiled a bucket list to celebrate the last year of my 20s! This list is filled with 29 things that I think all 20 somethings should experience at least once – before they hit 30.
