6 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOURSELF IN JUST 10 MINUTES A DAY
September has been designated Self Improvement Month, but if the thought of adding professional development on top of all your current obligations seems overwhelming, don’t panic — here are six ways that you can improve yourself with just ten minutes a day!
Learn something. Try downloading a “word of the day” app to build your vocabulary, or download a language learning app like Duolingo and tackle a simple lesson over your coffee.
Take a break. This may seem counterintuitive, but taking regular breaks has been shown to increase productivity. Though there are differing stances on how long those breaks should be, ten minutes is a manageable length even for busy people.
Check in with a friend. If you want to be better about building and maintaining relationships, a good first step is learning to check in. Whether it’s personal or professional, getting a quick message from a friend or colleague makes someone feel acknowledged and builds trust.
Exercise or stretch. You don’t have to schedule entire workout routines in order for your body to benefit from a little movement. Press pause on work for ten minutes and do some jumping jacks, take a walk outside, or do some stretches to relieve tension.
Journal. The list of benefits that journaling has been shown to have is almost unbelievable: Better sleep, better memory, better communication skills, and even a higher IQ.
Meditate. By this point, nearly everyone has heard about what a positive impact regular meditation can have on mental health. But if you’re still intimidated by it, try doing it for just ten minutes a day. There are even apps that can guide you through it.
Not every self improvement project needs to be a daunting undertaking! In fact, by choosing small habits to build into your routines, you may find self improvement easier to stick with.
