Effective habits to make your life easier


You know life can be hard, right?
These 4 habits will make it a lot easier.

So let’s get started,

1. START A MORNING and EVENING ROUTINE.
Grab a pen and a notebook. Set a time when you get to bed (This doesn’t mean you are going to sleep). Than lists things down that you want to do before going to sleep. Avoid screens and focus on getting in sleep mode. For example I like to read a book about things where I want to improve in ( just get in your near library and take some interesting books) . I also like taking a show , this makes my body go to sleep mode.  The same concept for the morning.
This ensures that the important things get done. And also gives you your well needed 8 hour sleep.

2. ASK YOURSELF DAILY QUESTIONS
I start the day by asking me 5 questions. And each day I learn from them.
1) What did I learn from yesterday?
2) What is your goal for today?
3) Do I like where I am?
4) Where do I want to be?
5) What can I do today to get closer?
Grab your phone and type them into your notes. Then copy and paste them everyday in a new note. Start answering them. It will give you an overview of your life. And you will learn from your mistakes.

3. GIVE SOMEONE A COMPLIMENT
Just pick a friend, a family member or even a stranger. Say something nice like: “What a great dog” or “Hey, I like your eyes”.
In the beginning it seems a bit strange. But it is worth it. It makes you smile.
There reactions are priceless.

4. ORGANIZE YOUR ROOM
It makes everything looks clean. Your head isn’t such a mess anymore. It is efficient to give everything a place so you don’t have to look for it.
Just start by grabbing your clothes from your chair or from the floor. Fold your clothes. Than divided them in two groups : 1) Getting back in your closet, 2) Getting in your washing-machine. You can do the same with your books and other stuff. 1) Getting back in your storage or 2) Give it a good spot.
This will make your life some much easier.

Having these habits is going to get things done, give you an overview, make you smile and organize
your life. 

We become what we repeatedly do.

Recontextualization; a change in framing

One day, about two or three years ago, my little brother stole my bar of chocolate. I was mad and lost my respect towards him. Later on that day I asked ‘Why did you steal my bar of chocolate?”. He said “Because it is mine”. I said “No it isn’t”. “Yes it is” he kept saying. Then my mom came in the room and asked why I didn’t eat my chocolate bar. My perspective changed; I couldn’t find my bar and I said that he stole it, which he didn’t. My facts didn’t changed but the way I looked at it did. This is called recontextualization.


The importance of Recontextualization


When we get the inside in this phenomena we learn how we can change or perspectives. It also opens up the possibility of radically changing your understanding of a situation or facts without changing the facts. In my opinion, reality can hide the things that are in our reach. It helps us to put the right things in the proper context. Another example, ‘a man is jumping’. Think for a second about what you are picturing before …

The importance of reading

Today we are going to discuss the importance of reading. Reading has been in our lives since the middle ages but it faded away in the begining of this century. Mainly under teenagers it isn't popular anymore. Therefore I wanted you to show the importance of reading. Because a lot of people don't see the use in books nowadays. So let's get started,
Reading has a lot of benefits to the mind. The first benefit is that the mind needs the practice of reading to sense the words it sees. It develops the ability to connect the words to images in the head. So how more you read how faster and better you will read. And it will give you a bigger arsenal of vocabulary. Further reading create the ability to focus better and really listen to people in general. Because you train your brain to concentrate on one thing at a time. It also improves your memory because when we read, we are using our memory muscle. Joseph ones used a great metaphor, which explains it all;
Reading is to the m…

Psychological evolution; the way people work

Hey there! Today we are going to discuss spiral dynamics. What are they? And how can we use it in our daily life? For this blog post I studied several lectures and videos to get to know this subject. And I found it so interesting that I want to share it with you guys. It is about the psychological evolution of thinking. How we think but also our perspectives which change through out our lives. Which will help you to find your blind spots. Which you don’t want to see. But once you see them you will see the need to develop in those blind spots. Besides that, it will help you to see the world from all life perspectives. You will get to know how to talk to certain groups of people. And it will be a really open-minded experience once you understand this concept developed by Clare Graves. Let’s dive into the concept!

Before I am explaining all levels I am going to let you know how I am going to do that. Each color is a level of a perspective on life. The first three aren’t really relevant be…
