Have you noticed the game I have been playing on Instagram this week?
I’ve been posting a photo each day that represents a Rule I Live My Life By. I’ve joined in with 14 other bloggers to promote the new Appletiser “Get Your Sparkle On” campaign, and we’ve all been posting photos and life mantras on Instagram. (See them all here via my Facebook page, just click on the #appletisersparkle hashtag)
Don’t worry if you missed my photos – they’re all here today in this blog post! Some of them have been so funny and quirky, but mine are a bit more serious – so without further ado, let’s get into them.
This is something I like doing, but I know many people don’t. Pushing yourself just that little bit every day makes you such a stronger person, whether its exercise, meeting new people, eating something new or wearing a different coloured lipstick. It all adds up.
Work hard sounds, well, like hard work. It is! Staying in touch with people even though our own lives are chaotic can seem like a full time job, but if you find small ways to show people you care it makes them and YOU feel great. Go on, call or text a friend now.
Yay for vegetables! If you work a rainbow of colours into your diet everyday then you’re being healthy without even trying. Then the important part – eat slowly. Give your brain time to register the food and give yourself time to indulge in a little bond-forming conversation at the dinner table :)
It’s a bit cheesy, I know. But you get the point, right? Positivity, always! Shitty stuff happens, that’s true for every person on the earth. Just try and turn the situation around or look at it differently to make the best of it. That’s what I do.
Last but not least, nurture yourself. Do things just for you so that you are happy in your own skin. You will be a better parent, sibling, wife/husband and human being. You will radiate happiness and that’s contagious (in a good way).
Those are my rules. What are yours? I would really LOVE to hear them!
