Our memories are made up of our day to day experiences in life. Some of these experiences come to us, on their own and some we create on our own, based on our choices; We can choose to stare at an excel sheet through out the day and come back home and further choose to stare at it, by working late night, to cite an extreme example.
What are the various option we have, in addition to our work at the office or at school or at home?
Here are a few of them:
- Listen to music
- Watch a movie
- Write a story
- Spend time with our family
- Walk our dog
- Indulge in our hobby
- Prepare a budget
- Organize our house
- Read a book
We need to pack in a variety of activities into our days and we need to do this consciously; For most of us, our day gets packed, by chance and not by our choice.
The best way to begin, is by listing all activities that we enjoy and all the activities that are useful for us. Once we have such a list, lets call it the "experience list" for want of another name, we can then plan an entire week filled with varied activities that give us fun and are useful to us.
Without such a plan we will tend to do the same activities again and again while we could have done something else that would have given us immense satisfaction or joy.
As of me, I am putting this idea to work on a priority basis.
What about you? Try it out!
You may have, at the most, an experience of a Lifetime or an experience of a "Life week", at the least.
