Saying no

One of the most important lessons we can learn in life is how to say no. Although this sounds (and might come) easy to some, many of us struggle with it. This means that we often find ourselves agreeing to things that we shouldn't or don't want to do. You will face situations like these often in your life, whether that be in your private or professional life. And the sooner you learn to say no, the sooner you will be able to focus on things that you actually want to have time for.

It always helps.

Thankfully, my flatmate is an amazing cook so she has taught me a few tips and tricks. With the current quarantine, many of us are forced to cook at home more because most restaurants are closed. There is no better time to learn how to cook!

Feeling at a loss

Everyone feels at a loss every once in a while, especially when big events happen or big decisions have to be made. How are we supposed to stay sane and move towards our goals when everything that we normally do, everything that defines us, can’t be done? It’s in times like these that it is especially important for you to reflect on yourself and on your life, figure out what you really want and what you should probably stop spending your precious energy on. Here is a list of things that I have found helpful during this lockdown when I’m feeling lost or overwhelmed. I hope that these will help you too.
