In This Moment I am... Taking Stock

In This Moment I am... Taking Stock

I was inspired by my dear friend Nikki, over at Nikki De Vet, to do a "taking stock" post. A taking stock post involves simply writing down a list of what you are doing, thinking, feeling, creating and dreaming up in the moment. I thought it would be an interesting "journalling" exercise to reflect on where I was at in this new year so far.

After making my list which I have shared below, I actually felt incredibly grateful knowing that I was living each moment to my fullest and that my day or moments were actually so varied.

It was also a good reminder for me to slow things down a little and to live a simpler life as I seem to fall head over heels with so many different things at once. But, on the other hand, being a multi passionate person can also mean that you constantly have a seemingly endless supply of ideas that inspire you to live bigger and dream bigger.

All in all - I guess it is about finding a healthy balance between keeping a steady focus and welcoming in the inspiration.

13 Reminders For Single Tasking

In my previous post on The Art of Single Tasking, I set a challenge for myself to practice single tasking rather than multitasking. You can read about it here.

I have now been on my challenge for about 2 weeks now and have noticed a big shift in my productivity and the way I feel throughout the day. I have been able to get so much more done by simply acting with intention. In addition, I have found that I now go about my day with more clarity, gratitude and a calmer demeanour.

One of the surprising things that has come out from this little experiment is that I have felt like I am able to let some things go - simply because I recognise how a lot of things can add complication and unnecessary stress to my life, which detracts my energy from doing the things that really matter.

So, in a way, single tasking is about creating a more minimalist lifestyle with more thought behind each action.

During my 2 weeks, I have noticed that there are a number of tasks where I would subconsciously default into multi-tasking mode. There were specific tasks (such as breakfast, commuting to work, etc) where I would always feel the need to multi-task because I had succumbed to this habit overtime.
