How I changed my bad habits into good and productive habits


Two years ago, nearly today, I started this blog. I had all these great ideas I wanted to implement and information I wanted to share with the online community. Along the way, I lost my zeal.

I wrote a few posts and suddenly stopped. As a matter of fact, a lot of changes took place in my personal life, both good and not so great. I felt incredibly overwhelmed, and I just stopped focusing on what was important.

I took a step back to look at my life and the route it was taking. And I decided it was time I made a complete overhaul in all areas of my life. I started reading and absorbing messages from personal development books and listening to audios of my favorite speakers.

I have compiled a list of the steps I have taken in my life, and I hope they will somehow help you to have the best years of your experience from now on.

Divorce your toxic friends and family members
I don’t know about you, but I was surrounded by toxic friends, colleagues and family members who were consciously or unconsciously complaining, angry, frustrated and manipulative.

I was once the type to carry everyone’s problems and burdens. not to mention all the efforts and time I put to people who did not value me. I came to realize that sometimes it’s okay to put a safe distance away from all the drama and negative energy.

I now focus on me and dedicate my strength to those who value my input in their lives, time and love.

Okay, so this one I am still struggling with it. I know fitness is easy peasy for most people, but I am not in that category. I bought a rope, and I have a treading machine. I used to stare at it for close to 30 minutes and visualize I am exercising.

And then I would go about with other things. Silly right? Talk about taking visualization to the next level. Anyway, nowadays I try to do at least 30 minutes of exercise, and I am reaping the benefits.

I am not a religious person per say. I am not the type who will be all over your face with verses and judging your life choices and all the annoying stuff some religious people partake. Instead, I like to think of myself as a spiritual person. I pray to God. I speak to the universe.

I listen to Zen meditation music. I practice and believe in energy healing, reiki, and the likes, I meditate, and I just pick what I feel what works for me from this group of people or religion and work with it. I practice yoga; I love the energy and healing crystals. I am a sucker for candles. I just love creating a space where I feel at peace with positive energy and thoughts.


I recently got news of a very close family member of mine was diagnosed with a terminal illness. I was devastated. I would go to the hospital where she was admitted and see sick people all around, and negative thoughts clouded my mind.

I was bad energy and not helping the situation at all. But I started to meditate, clearing my mind, taking deep breaths, and being aware of my surroundings. I am now very good at it. I have the right mindset and I am at peace with any tough situation that might come my way because I know it too shall come to pass.

Set goals
I have categorized my goals in terms of big goals and small daily goals, and I have all of them written down. And I commit myself and time to deliver and achieve my goals. When I reach my goal and surpass my expectations, I am motivated to do more, and this gives me so much energy, happiness, and satisfaction.

Block social media accounts
This is the greatest addiction and distraction of all time. To me at least. I used to plan to do a task, and then I end up with numerous tabs open and watching YouTube videos (music) irrelevant stuff that is not related to my current goal or activity. I, therefore, end up wasting my time and energy for absolutely nothing. I would peep on Facebook or Instagram to catch on the latest news, friend’s posts, and then read the comments under the posts.

Being happy and loving myself
Am genuinely satisfied. After getting rid of most of the things keeping me back. Despite whatever may come my way, I am a happy person. I wrote a fun, motivating and accomplished letter to my future self.

Here is a link or, it’s fun, and you get to live with the reasonable and high expectations you have put or envisioned yourself to achieve. I love myself. I don’t compare myself and achievements with others. I take care of my body, I have enough rest. I am not fixated on solving all aspects of my life at one go.

Get away
Get away from your comfort zone, from your desktop and go outside for a walk or run. If you can manage to set aside a few days to travel, that will be a bonus. I travel a lot and meet interesting people and made good friends.  This has opened my eyes to the possibilist of achieving great things in life. And I have more inspiration for my dreams and goals.


I love paper books. But when I can’t help it, I log in to my Kindle or good reads and absorb myself in a great book. Also, I love listening to podcasts and audiobooks.

Delete social media accounts
I had numerous irrelevant apps on my phone.  I got rid of all the unnecessary apps. And my phone and mind appreciate me for that.

Positive affirmations
This is my favorite. Most people don’t believe in this kind of stuff, but it has worked out for me numerous times. The I AM affirmations.




I AM etc.…

Keeping a daily journal
I enjoy filling out my diary with details of my daily activities and achievements.  It keeps me focused and committed and some say it helps you become a better writer.

Vision board
Yep. I have one too. It’s kind of silly when I started thinking about it but when I read on the power behind having a vision board. I also made one for myself.  And every time I look at it I remember my WHY of doing what I am doing.

You need to ask yourself the following questions before embarking on the journey.

What is your life’s purpose?

Are you happy with your current situation?

What is the most important thing to you?

What do you want to achieve?

Who are you doing it for?

Life is phenomenal. Life is beautiful. Despite everything that has passed in my life all the good and the bad. I am grateful because they have all taught me great lessons on life.

Nowadays I smile to people more often, because everyone is going through their journey whether challenging or exciting. I am more aware of my surroundings. I have positive thoughts, and I always attract good circumstances and people in my life.



How to Develop a Routine that Works and Saves Time

Ah!!! This week has been a blessing. The weather has been fantastic! It was all sunny and warm temperatures, got to make new friends, learned how to manage my time and had successful jobs. All that has actually made me more productive and I got a few things done here and there.
Now, to tell the truth, I am one of those people who can plan for an activity or something and never follow through. I have had a problem managing my time for as long as I can remember. So trust me when I say I know I have missed a lot of opportunities because of that.

I’m sure some people are going through this terrible phase, or you know someone who has this problem right? So, I had to share with you what has transformed in my daily activities and how I have learned to manage my time. So read on how to develop a routine that works and saves time

Create to do List
You probably have a routine in place that you follow, but it might not necessarily be working out for you. In fact, you might discover you are not efficient and productive in your daily activities as you might think. It is time to reassess your habits and create a to-do list. Do it in the morning or the night before. Be realistic, and you will save time and get more work done.

Clean Out your Table
Trust me; I had the most untidy desk. I am not saying leftover food and clothes were lying all over. But I had a disorganized desk with books, disc, pens and flash discs sprawled all over. There was no space for me to work in comfortably. But now my office is spotless. I get positive vibes and work for longer now.

Getting Rid of Stuff that is Distracting You 
The internet! Yes. I know, I am also a culprit. Once I get on YouTube and Facebook, it’s impossible just to turn them off and concentrate. There is always something exciting happening or some sob story that drains your energy. So stay away from these social media sites until you’re through in doing the task you had set yourself out to do.

Getting Regular Exercise
If you work from home like me, you probably know how much that can take a toll on your body. Especially your back; hence invests in some training equipment. A simple skipping rope will do for starters.

Taking Time Off
You probably want to finish that task or that project in record time. But remember you are human by the end of the day. Take regular breaks, stretch, take a nap, walk or read a book. This will rejuvenate your mind and body and also give you time to rest.

Making Most of Your Productive Time of Day
So I discovered I am most productive at night. In fact, I can work and finish loads of work during that period. I am not a morning person. Doesn’t matter how many cups of coffee you force me to drink. Unless it’s something urgent or a deadline I have to beat. Then I will definitely push myself out of bed.

Create a Daily Plan or Schedule
I do make a list but hardly follow it up. But maybe it can help you out plan your day, week, month or the whole of 2017.

Having a Healthy Diet
Who I’m I kidding? No, I don’t eat nuts and salads all day long to stay healthy. I am not too ashamed to say I occasionally find myself in a restaurant getting myself a bag of chips or a salty snack, I have a “salty tooth” But hey, help me out here. Let’s eat more of healthy food stuff this year.

I can’t tell you much about it aside from the fact that I have read the benefits of yoga online. I recently bought myself a small mat, just a regular mat not those overpriced yoga mats. (My sentiments) I have just signed up for some excellent yoga classes on YouTube for beginners. I know! Right…? Everything is online these days.

So, this is my 2017 challenge; to improve my wellness and well-being by practicing yoga and eating right.

What’s yours? Please share. Oh and happy New year. I’m assuming it’s not too-too late yet.
