Walking challenge

Yours, O Lord , is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, 
and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, 
O Lord , and this is your kingdom. 
We adore you as the one who is over all things.
1 Chronicles 29:11 NLT

Lord Jesus thank you.
Wwwp5K - Day 2: 
Thank You God for the boldness to step outside
 
The journey continues, 
as I walk the streets to the park 
in the cold weather, 
I think to myself what have I done.
 
Can I, do I, well this is it
yes the taughts of quiting 
already sliding through 
the door that is close

The weather was definetly
not helping
as my hands starts to feeze
OK we need to walk faster than this 
So I started to run home

Wow not so bad now that I am in the 
house in the warmth
with a nice hot water

Come back tomorrow to find out 
If I did brave the outdoors again

For now thank you for stopping by. 
Have a wonderful day

“Nugget of Information”

Come to my home each day and listen to me. You will find happiness.

“How you feel about tomorrow starts with today”

Thank You God that You sent the light of the world to shine brightest in my darkest day and that no shadow is cast out. Amen.

Routines are not just for today but for life: We are a creature of habits and having a routine in our daily life helps so much.

Nuggets for today are really geared in the direction of having a work space and home space both in our mind and physical home.

Routines can be boring but it means we get to be productive daily and know that we have accomplished something.

Having a routine gives us a reason to get up:

The brain feels more motivated when it achieves something, even as a child we need that compliments from our parents for the accomplishment we have done. Everyone wants to be recognised or maybe just me. It all started when we were children looking for that approval from our parents. Like cleaning our room or finishing our homework or getting a good grade.

It is no different to now, we get motivated knowing that we have accomplished something. We look forward to a reward and how you get a reward as an adult, you make them and get your mind to look forward to it.

So as we go into a second lockdown in the U.K. it is now necessary to have a morning routine to our daily lives. Not just morning but the whole day routine.

Things that have helped me daily for years now. So whether we work from home or go to work, we need a routine to make it work and life to be easy on ourselves. The big bad wolf stays outside your home and you get to have peace in your life.

Morning Routine – Prepare for work:

What that means is:

Praying, journaling and exercise. No compromise on these. Journaling gives a sense of what the day ahead will be like, being positive at the get go sets the day for what lies ahead. It’s all about intentionally looking to the brightest light in front of us and knowing that God is our strength, the rock behind that we can lean on. Jesus is the focus of our attention.

One thing I have learnt is to just write or type until you finish, then you can go back and edit but don’t stop the flow.

Have a work space that is separate from your living space. Definitely a no no on the bedroom. Don’t work from the bed as it is not good for your posture and it also doesn’t give you that sense of waking up completely.

Get up and shower, make your bed, get dressed and go to work. You will be amazed at what it does to the brain, knowing that you have to go to work, you have to get ready. Shower definitely wakes us up and gets us ready, better yet have a cold shower that definitely always wakes me up and it feels so good. Even if you are working at home, making that effort does wonder to you.

Create the morning routine to include breakfast.

Never work before breakfast; if you have to work before breakfast, eat your breakfast first. ~ Caroline B Collney

This is definitely true, and also breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

This is for people working from home as most people are: Log in 20 minutes before you start.

Maintain a normal working routine not to feel isolated. Log in at the same time as everyone and that gives you a chance to speak to your colleagues within working hours without feeling guilty. Stay connected with them, don’t be shy to pick up the phone instead of emails. 

Be kind to yourself by making sure that you are always on time and don’t feel pressure or guilt to do extra hours just because you are at home.

Get a lunch break: use these time to self care for example mediate, relax and listen to your taught, spend time with your family to have lunch or friends.

If you are single and on your own: 

Take time to read a book that you have wanted to read for so long and haven’t got the time to. Now you have all the time to listen to music, read the Bible. Never use your lunch times to catch up on news, or listen to news at any time during the working hours. You wouldn’t do it in normal working conditions. Why start it now? If you have already then you can unlearn it and get back into a self care routine.

There are limits to what we can do around us and that is the spread of the COVID19, as individuals our part is to stay safe and listen to what the professionals say. 

Every person must submit to and support the authorities over him. For there can be no authority in the universe except by God’s appointment, which means that every authority that exists has been instituted by God. Romans 13:1 TPT
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

We often suffer but are never crushed, even if we don’t know what to do. Never give up, know that God is always with us. When we are knocked down, get up and let Jesus help you up. 

“Nugget of Information”

Ears that hear and eyes that see— the Lord has made them both.
Proverbs 20:12 NIV

BUBBLES:

According to google bubbles defination: “used to refer to a good or fortunate situation that is isolated from reality or unlikely to last.”

Bubbles don’t last but our Humanity will last. In the UK we have our little bubbles or not depending on what is said. 

How we react now will either be regret later or praise?

Things that you can do to change for the future and to know that it is never too late to be committed to the people around you.

We might be in a bubble but we can have a phone call. Sometimes a phone call is all we need. 

Things to do while it is getting darker and the clock has moved forward and you need that motivation to get out of bed, also knowing that anything outside the duvet is not welcome except a cup of coffee or tea.

Get a journal or book near you so that every morning you write one word that will set you for the day. 

Always think of one thing in the morning that you will do, write it down and that gives you a purpose and meaning to get up. Set the day with one word – ‘healthy’ that could mean physical, mental or eating. But it will be a word to set your day and your focus. It could be ‘worship’ but setting our mind on that word means we focus on one thing.

Call someone: One of the things I have learned is not to wait for someone to call you but be the first to do it. If anything COVID19 has taught us this year it is not good to be isolated. 

Listen: Listening is action and requires our full attention and also a very good skill to have and practice daily. “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” James 1:19b 

That also includes listening to what our body is saying to us, like you need to sleep now and we ignore it until we actually can’t function anymore and fall asleep on the couch. Yes that is bad and should be avoided, I know sometimes we think we cannot help it but we can intentionally switch off and have rest. My motto is “Work can replace me if I die, so why kill myself over it” give it your all and have a break as well and don’t fall for the trap that says I will take a break when I need to because five hours later that one email needs you more than the break and you are still sitting down. Take a break regularly especially if you are on the screen always. 

But be careful “Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare.” Proverbs 20:13 NIV

I have purposeful sets alarm for breaks because I was that person I will do and never did it, and this has helped me to focus and know that when it goes off it is breaks time.  Me time to just relax, eat or just close my eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by and below is a picture of my weekend of fun.

Hannah-Michaela. We can cannot change what happens around us but we can change our responses. Have a wonderful day and be blessed.
