Be friends with routine!

I remember how I was scared of routine. Doing the same things day by day scared me. Little did I know that those movements help your body be in a rhythm.

Routine helps you overcome depression and feeling out of place. It helps putting your daily life in structure. It helps you plan your days. You don’t have to live in the unknown.

Reasons why routine is important:

1.You can create your own To-Do List 

Checking things off a list never felt this good before. No, really, try it. It’s as if you’re proving yourself that you’re capable of anything!

2.You will be in rhythm!

And your health will be thankful to you. Daily routine takes away the stress from the unknown. You don’t have to run around, thinking what will happen and when will it happen, if you’re in routine.

3. Say goodbye to bad habits

Routine leaves no time for bad habits. It’s that simple. Following daily tasks, you will notice that you won’t have free time for habits that weren’t good for you. You will be your own priority.

4. Relax time gets more amazing!

It really does. After a hard day of working, you’ll feel in heaven when you leave your work for home. Also, you’ll find that the time you spend doing what you like will feel 10 times better!

5. What is procrastination?

It’s in the past! Since you won’t have much free time, you have to plan your free time! And tasks, that are burning, need to be done in time! No more blank space in your planner. No more space to use for your lazyness.

6. Good night sleep!

According to the National Sleep Foundation, going to bed at the same time every night, and waking up at the same time each morning  can help regulate the body’s internal clock.

Get ready to feel fresh and good at 8 AM!!

So, what are you waiting for? Be friends with routine! It can be a good thing!

London Book Fair 2018 – Latvia as Guest of Honor

In 2018, Latvia will take a part in London Book Fair with national literature and Latvia’s best selling books. Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia will accept the title Guest of Honor from Poland.

Latvian authors will go with the slogan #IAMINTROVERT.

The campaign includes several activities, one of them being a series of video-stories exploring how the world looks through the eyes of an introvert. These video-stories will feature the Latvian writers attending this year’s London Book Fair – prose writers Gundega Repše, Nora Ikstena, Osvalds Zebris, Pauls Bankovskis and poets Semjons Haņins, Artis Ostups, Arvis Viguls, Madara Gruntmane.

“The world is the perfect place for extroverts. For the kind of people that know how to start a relaxed conversation with a stranger, perform in front of an audience, say something kind about themselves, or hug someone for no reason at all. But we are different. Latvians can feel deeply confused when kissed on both cheeks. Or when suddenly talked to on public transport. Should you compliment a Latvian, they will turn red-white-red. Latvia is one of the world’s most introvert nations. And so are our writers, of course. And we are proud of it. We allow our books speak for us since literature is the perfect world for introverts.”

Learn to be wrong

You’re wrong.

Yes, you heard me, you’re wrong. Don’t look at me with that confused look. Don’t look at me with your large eyes. You’re wrong. It’s hard to admit it. You don’t want to be that person because who wants to be wrong? Nobody.

But sometimes you have to admit that you’re wrong.

Maybe the person you identify as “easy-going” is a hard working person who doesn’t leave the room until they are done with their main tasks? Maybe the person who looks like he work hard, is just drinking coffee while people, lower his rank, do all the work for him?

You never know. There is no right anwer. Learn to be wrong. Learn to admit that you’re wrong. It’s not bad to be wrong. It gives you a chance to learn and find different truths.

The Law of Attraction and Manifestation

I have been going through YouTube videos that teach you how everything is possible in this world.

You have to make a wish. You have to write it down and not tell anyone. You need to put out the energy of what you want. You have to think about that in details.

Give out positive, loving energy! It’s a “give and take” with universe and “give and take” with people!

Take your time to understand yourself. Find your self-love. Practice and put effort over not beating yourself up on little things. Stop comparing yourself to others and embrace yourself! Be amazing for yourself!

Stop putting out blocks if you want something! Stop saying “I can’t have this because…”!

How can the universe give you what you want if your hands are in your pockets? You need to believe in yourself 100 000%!!!!

Life is magic and wonderful. Don’t waste your energy on negative things!

Life is special. World is special. Enjoy every day! Live with open mind!

The art of being stuck.

It’s March.

Oh my god, how time flies. But with time comes also the realization that something is missing. There’s a piece with you that’s not following the rhythm.

And that’s when you know that you’re stuck. I have no idea how it happened and why it keeps happening, but I often get stuck with things. With the flow of life. Over and over again. I’m one of those who shouts, how much they hate being on the same place, yet, I’m not moving.

It seems like everyone is moving but you’re the one who’s missing all the fun.

So I have created a plan. Every week this month, I will do something out of the box.

I wish myself some luck! 🙂
