“Block time for yourself and put it on your calendar or to-do list. Review your daily habits and create rituals for yourself that provide you with a grounding sense of peace and calmness”, Mimi Ikonn advises. It may be listening to an audio book, being close to nature, going for insightful walks and letting your mind wander. Or simply going out for breakfast with your partner, having a quiet moment while enjoying your favorite tea, or doing some breathing exercises.
“Regardless of what you do, the point is to have fun”, Mimi admits when talking about her values. Having fun is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Take some time to be playful, laugh, dance, engage in light-hearted pleasures, immerse yourself in creative activities, and enjoy the process—this helps you break the tension, which positively affects your well-being and productivity.
