FOMO or JOMO?

FOMO or JOMO? Which one do you practice?
.
Nowadays people are so soaked into social media and Internet that it becomes hard for them to get off their phones. 📱 This habit got its name – FOMO – Fear of Missing Out.
.
Some of us can’t spend a day (or even an hour!) without the phone, without looking at instagram or checking facebook every 5minutes. Can you relate?
I used to HAVE TO check snapchat (when it was still on top 😅) everyday. I HAD TO see new stories before they disappear after 24h. I used to scroll whole facebook feed until I got to my last seen post. Same with twitter. I just had to see it all. What for? Don’t know. I just felt like I can’t miss out.
.
I had that problem not only with social media but with emails too. I could go on holidays, set an autoresponder and then check all the emails and reply to them straight away anyways. I just couldn’t let it go.
.
But luckily I changed FOMO into JOMO – Joy of Missing Out 😊. Now whenever I go on holidays I am happy to leave my mailbox full and let those unread emails wait for me. I go on instagram when I have time and feel like it, not because I HAVE TO see all the instastories before they disappear.
.
If you have same problem as I used to have just try (try really hard) to let your phone aside for 1 full day. Once you see that nothing happens when you miss out on the news and new posts on your social media it will be easier for you to do it next time and then another time and another.
.
Believe me, life is not all about social media! 😊
.
Enjoy JOMO!

Complimenting vs Complaining

Do you compliment strangers as often as you complain? Do you thank people who serve you a meal in a restaurant and say how happy you are with their service? Do you praise people who help you out on a helpline? Are you open to say a nice thing to a stranger when he/she does something extra for you? 🙏
🔅
I work in a contact center and I talk to many clients everyday and I’ve noticed that 90% of people either argue and complain 😡 or say nothing at all. It is honestly so rare when I get a phone call or an email from a client just thanking me and saying that he’s very happy with my services and that I’ve helped him a lot.
Why don’t people say nice things as often as bad ones?
🔅
It is same with reviews. People usually leave reviews on restaurant or hotel when they have some remarks to share and things to complain about. Can you relate? Have you ever written a complaint? I’m sure you have. But have you ever written an email/review saying „I have nothing to complain about, everything was perfect, thank you for your services”? 😉 I try to do it as often as sending those less happy emails. We all need to thank ourselves for being nice/helpful too! Not just complaining! 🤗
🔅
And it doesn’t have to be only about services and talking to strangers businesswise! Thank/compliment your friends or collegues on daily basis too!
For example, couple weeks ago I asked my boss for a one-on-one meeting. She was 100% sure that I want to complain about something whereas I surprised her and said „So as not to come to you only to complain and talk about injustices in our team or short bonus I actually wanted to come to you and to thank you”. She was shocked. Nobody has ever asked her for a meeting just to thank her for what she’s doing.
🔅
Do you know what I mean now?
Do you think you could do the same?
🔅
Please lets all try to compliment more than complain or at least to say nice things as often as bad things! 🤗

Free happiness!

Some people say you can’t be happy without money 💰.
Don’t get me wrong, money are much needed and useful obviously BUT don’t forget about happy things you can get FOR FREE!
1. Beautiful sunsets – it won’t cost you anything yet sometimes it can take your breath away! 🌅
2. Hug / kiss – hugging or kissing your friend / partner definitely won’t cost you anything yet it will make you feel loved, needed and happy 💏
3. Smile – smile at others! Even at the strangers. It will also go a long way and will make anyone’s mood better ☺
4. Long walk in the mountains or forest – long walks are very useful as you will clear your mind, relax and get new ideas 🏞
5. Appreciate the blue sky. Is it a pretty day? If so, head outside and enjoy the pretty blue sky. Allow yourself to give thanks for the beautiful day 🌝
6. Volunteer Your Time. Volunteering your time is a great way to help others and get enjoyment at the same time. Whether it’s a soup kitchen or an animal shelter, there are many places that could benefit from a helping hand 🤝
7. Meditate. Take some time to rest, relax, and center your mind to find happiness 🧘🏼‍♀️
8. Make A Grateful List. Writing down the things that you are grateful for can instantly make you happy ✒
See?
And there’s so much more of free things/activities that can make you happy!
You don’t need money to be happy, believe me! 😊

Past dreams

Remember what did you use to dream about? What were your goals once? 🤔
:::
Maybe you dreamed about a job you have now? Maybe you were trying to get a girl that is now your wife? Maybe you tried to buy that dream house that you call your home nowadays? Are you still happy about those things? Do you appreciate what you have? That you have what you dreamed of some time ago?
:::
People tend to forget to be happy about what they have. To be grateful for where they are.
You got your dreams! You won! 🤗
:::
Obviously once we get one thing we dream of another but don’t forget about the goals you’ve already achieved 🙏. Be happy about the job you got that you wanted so badly in the past, be happy about the girl of your dreams that is now by your side and be happy about every little dream you’ve accomplished!
Don’t take anything for granted ⚠️

Contradictory world

We live in weird times, don’t you think? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Times when everything is wrong and has it’s own haters. At least that’s how I feel.
▫️
I feel like whatever used to be good some time ago is now bad. I feel like we, as civilization, do circles when it comes to everyday rules. For example, 20-30 years ago people ate eggs and vegetables from their gardens/farms. It was all rural and eco 🍏🥦🌽🍅🥚. Then the technology moved on and somebody invented all this crap that we put into our food now to make vegetables last longer, be bigger, taste better, be more colorful etc etc. And it was hip. 🔝 People gave up on fresh food straight from farms and went for food made by big companies. „Because it tastes better!”, „Because it cheaper!” etc… And now we go back to point A. Fresh, healthy food is now on top, eating bio and eco stuff is trendy and food made by big companies is bad 👎. I feel like we keep saying that what we have is BAD and that we need something BETTER.
▫️
And it is not only about food. E.g. cosmetics too! There was a time when people used herbs and natural stuff to take care of their skin, then we had big companies make creams for us with all those chemicals inside that apparently made our skin more firm, glowing, younger looking and God knows what else. And now we are back to point A where the less chamicals cream has, the better. Obviously.
▫️
I feel like we no longer know what is good for us and what isn’t.🤷🏼‍♀️ There is such a a mix of various information on every subject that we don’t know what/who to listen to anymore 🤯.
▫️
Like some people say coconut oil is good for us and others are totally against it. Some specialists say silk is good for your hair and others say it isn’t. Some people say that motivating others and trying to make them feel better, to motivate them to reach out for their goals is great and some say that coaching is pure evil and nobody should listen to it.🤷🏼‍♀️
▫️
How do you find yourself in this hectic world nowadays? How should we react to all those contradictory opinions?

Getting up

YOU, not anybody else, decide in the morning what kind of a day it will be. 👊
It is you who wake up and set your mood on.👊
:::
Stop thinking „od damn, I woke up in a bad mood”. Who turned it on for you? You did it. You have full control over your mood and stop thinking otherwise. 🚫
:::
If you wake up feeling sad or tired just quickly think of some good things you have planned for that day. Try to learn to quickly find those things you can be excited about on that day. Maybe you have delicious dinner prepared? 😋 Or you’re meeting with your friend in the afternoon? 👬 Or it’s Friday and you’re so close to weekend? I get up excited even on Mondays as new week is always new challenges for me and I love that. 😉
:::
Believe me, your first thoughts in the morning and the attitude you put yourself in will have HUGE ⚠️ impact on the rest of the day so choose it wisely.
:::
Do you want to get up smilling and have a good day or do you want to start your day cranky and full of anger? It is YOUR CHOICE to make. 😉

Failures

Many of you say that nobody is real on Instagram. That people tend to publish only photos from their happy momments and talk only about highlights from their lives.
This might be true but I am different. 😅
.
I already showed you a picture of me looking unattractive some time ago (remember that all those instagram models pose in their finest clothes and perfect make up), I already talked to you about my bad days (cause we all have them!) and now I’m gonna talk to you about my last failures.🤪
Because we all fail from time to time and it’s OK!
.
Failures are good because we get a great lesson and learn from mistakes but also we appreciate success more after couple obstacles! 🤗
.
One of my latest failures was that I was supposed to lose 5kg in July. It was my goal and I started July with a diet and working out routine. But then i got busy and stressed (in the contrary to most people – when I’m stressed i EAT!). And…instead of losing weight I gained 1kg 😅 It might be a small failure but it still is a failure to me.
.
Another one – I told you about a new project that I’ve been working on lately. I told you that I’ll tell you by the end of July if it worked or not. Well…it didn’t. I wanted to go back to University and start studying psychology but I didn’t get a scholarship and I can’t afford it. So no new University degree for me. At least not this year…
.
And now biggest of my latest failures. As some of you know I published a book in February 📕. I’ve been writing it 1.5 year, looking for a publishing house next 3 years…Whole process lasted over 7 years and you know what…? I sold only about 400 copies… Out of 5500 copies we printed… Hardly no one buys it…It’s been heart-breaking for me as I really wanted this to work and this book to be read by plenty people but this happens I guess. It’s sad but it’s ok. I need to move on. It was still a big adventure and a dream coming true for me. I had plenty interviews and signing meetings so it was fun!
.
So next time you fail remember to keep smilling! 😉 We all fail from time to time. The key is to learn your lesson and not to give up! 😊
