DIY Simple Life: How to Craft a Daily Routine that Uplifts & Energizes You

DIY Simple Life How to Craft a Daily Routine that Uplifts & Energizes You It’s that time of the year again, folks. People are starting to get the sniffles.

I was stuck at home for two days this past week fighting off a nasty cold myself.

And although I would have much rather spent that time getting some real work done, there is one tiny silver lining to a sick day stuck at home.  As I was cuddled up with 4 different blankets (no joke!), and a nose to rival Rudolphs’, I couldn’t help but realize how it takes catching a no-good virus to get me to slow down and rest a bit.

Sometimes, when you have a low-grade fever and absolutely ZERO energy, you can experience a serene sense of calm that’s hard to achieve during the hustle and bustle of a normal day. The other things just don’t seem to matter – all you are focused on is resting and feeling your best again. I always feel extremely connected to my body and spirit when I feel ill, my mind just isn’t up to the task of dealing with the usual worry and chatter.

In fact, I remember back in my acting days , I would give some of my best performances when I had a fever. I just didn’t CARE how I was doing, so the performance was natural and uninhabited.

Strange, right?

But living a direct and simple life doesn’t have to be a byproduct of catching a cold. In fact, it might be one of the greatest things we can do to help us stay healthy, sane, and focused on the things that matter most.
