I hope that you guys enjoyed this post and that it was helpful to you in possibly putting you on to some new things to watch on these streaming services.

I also realized as I was doing this, that a lot of the movies and TV shows I’ve saved to my ‘watch later’ playlists are throwbacks from when I was a kid haha. What can I say? Those were simpler times that I miss so much. Plus, those shows and movies were and still are freakin’ classics, so they never get old!

Also it’s worth mentioning that, in the lists, I mentioned a ton of different movies and shows but some that I’ve watched already, currently am watching or going to watch soon when I get a chance to.

Leave me a comment below of anything that YOU guys would personally recommend for me to watch whether it’s a new TV show or new movies. I’m always open to new suggestions, and now you have a feel for the taste I have in shows and movies to be able to recommend things to me haha.

If you enjoyed this post always remember to drop a like and please don’t forget to follow if you haven’t already.

I’ll see you guys in the next one!

How to be Productive at Home

Hey guys,

How’s everyone doing? Happy Wednesday!

By now it’s been quite a few days/weeks of us being in quarantine and working from home here in New York because la Rona (I’m actually coming up on 2 weeks this Friday), and people are definitely starting to get antsy.

Personally, the more I do it, the more I enjoy being able to work from the comforts of my own home AND do everything on my own time (for the most part).

However, the reality of the situation is that working from home can be both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because who wouldn’t want to be able to work and make money from the comforts of their own home, right? But also a curse because being TOO comfortable at home could lead to not getting  a whole lot of actual work done. Which is why I wanted to put this post together of ways to (try) staying productive while at home during this time.

* * * * * *

  1. Wake up early

The HORROR, right? I don’t even like waking up early on regular days, so why would I want to these days that I’m home all the time?

Well, because I am technically working from home and obligated to, but the beauty about it is that I start at 9 and don’t have to worry about waking up 2 hours before to get ready, get on a train and head to work. I can get up comfortably at around 8:30, which gives me enough time to brush up, make my coffee and something to eat, feed Nala and start work.

If you don’t have to work like I do, I by NO means am suggesting for you to wake up super early at the crack of dawn, but I think waking up at like 9am is a pretty decent time to be able to get yourself going for the day and start whatever work may need to be done. Give yourself a few days of doing this to REALLY get used to it and I promise it’ll become part of your daily routine in no time. After all, the early bird gets the worm, no?

2. Create a work space for yourself *NOT in your bedroom*

For me personally, this space is my dining room. The table is large enough for all of my work stuff (laptop, paperwork, etc.) and I’ll have everything I need to get stuff done throughout the day. It’s a place comfortable enough to work, but not super comfortable to the point that I’ll get distracted with other things like I would if I were in my room.

I actually don’t even step foot into my room until I’m done with work for the day, which is after 6:30 or so. I bring everything I need downstairs so that it avoids me having to go to my room and run the risk of getting lazy/comfortable up there.

Also, I know that not everyone may have the luxury of going to a whole other floor or room of their house, but surely there is SOME type of space in your home that you can claim for a period of time to get work done. Find it, claim it, and get to work!

3. Set certain work hours for yourself

Since I’m working from home, technically my hours are still pretty set, 9am-6pm. Your hours don’t have to be nearly as long, so long as you give yourself enough time to be able to get everything done that you need to for the day. Even if it’s an hour (although hopefully it’s not that short either lol). Regardless of what it is, make those hours your permanent work hours Monday through Friday moving forward and make sure you actually put those hours to good use.

4. Create a ‘to-do’ list of things that need to get done.

I’m sure this one sounds cheesy and super obvious, but it really is true, whether it’s for schoolwork, your job or just personal errands around the house, make sure you create a to-do list of things that need to get done for the day. I personally would advise to do it the day/night before so you’re not scrambling to remember what needs to get done on the day of. This way not only are you keeping organized, but you’re also *hopefully* going to manage to keep yourself busy for a while as you’re getting things done. Also, don’t forget to try and spread certain things out so that you have a little something to do everyday to keep yourself busy since there’s no telling when all this quarantine stuff is going to be over 🤕

5. Don’t forget to set aside some free time for personal stuff that you need and/or just want to get done.

Recently for me, my “me” time will be in the morning right before I start work as I’m having breakfast and drinking my coffee, in the middle of the day at some point when I do my home workouts and after I get off work at 6-6:30pm. Those are all my personal times to be able to take care of myself, work on blog posts, new videos, IG content, etc. I take care of the necessities that I need to for work, but I’m also finding time to be able to take care of myself and get my own PERSONAL work done. If I’m not being taken care of, how can I expect everything else to be taken care of? It’s all about balance.

* * * * * *

This was a requested post so I hope you guys enjoyed it and that it was helpful to you in some way, shape or form if you’ve been struggling to stay productive at this point in time while at home.

Keep in mind that this is and will continue to be a learning experience for us all, so if you don’t happen to be or feel super productive in the beginning of trying these things, try not to be too hard on yourself about it. Just keep at it and eventually, you’ll get yourself into a routine where all of the things I mentioned will end up becoming second nature to you.

If you did enjoy this post please make sure to hit the like button and don’t forget to follow if you aren’t already!

Continue to stay safe, stay healthy and I’ll see you guys in my next post!

PS – Please always feel free to comment below or email/message me any post ideas that you guys may want to see from me now or in the future!

6 Things I Want To Let Go Of This Year

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you guys all had a great weekend and are having a great start to the first week of March!

For today’s post, as you read from the title, I want to talk about things that I’m trying to let go of this year (as many others may end up agreeing with me on). I realize we’re already 3 months into the new year, but better late then never for coming to certain realizations like this, right?

A question I want you to ask yourselves before I begin: How do you expect this year or any day/month/year now or in the future to be different if you don’t take it upon yourself to make the necessary changes and remove as much of the negativity in your life and/or the things that tend to weigh you down in life as possible?

I’ve thought a lot about all of the things I’m going to talk about, and none of them are necessarily ‘ground-breaking’, but I think they are all definitely necessary for being able to live your best, negativity-free life (to some degree anyway).

* * * * * *

These are in no particular order:

  1. Grudges

unnamed

You gotta end up asking yourself what does holding a grudge really end up doing for you?

I’ve learned that holding grudges against people/things does absolutely nothing for you other than add unnecessary stress, anger and negativity to your life. Sure it may seem logical and justified in the moment of the issue, but eventually all you can and should do is try addressing the situation as best as you can and just let it go regardless of the outcome. Life is too short to be living with anger in your heart and stressing yourself out with unnecessary grudges.

2. My Aggression

screen_shot_2019-03-24_at_11.49.00_am

I have a tendency to be aggressive when I’m trying to be vocal about certain things I want and/or am feeling, and it’s not necessarily because I’m an angry person, but more because I feel like at times I’m not actually being understood or REALLY heard in what I’m trying to express to the person at the time.

I’ve learned that although it may come off as aggressive, it’s more just the fact that I can be really passionate when I’m trying to express myself and unfortunately, more often than not, it tends to come off as aggressive (I mean hello, I’m a freakin’ Leo).

I’m learning to slowly but surely let that go and train myself to think before I speak a little more and realize that there are ways to express how you feel without seeming like you’re angry all the time.

3. My Shyness

shyproblems

This one is hard because it’s literally something that I’ve dealt with my ENTIRE life. Being shy isn’t necessarily a bad thing in general, but when it comes to the work that I’m trying to do and the goals I’m trying to accomplish, it can definitely hold me back (as it unfortunately has before).

I’m sure that I’ve missed out on SO many networking events and opportunities due to my shyness, which really sucks, but this is why I’m trying to break out of this in 2020. I’m trying to put myself out there and be more transparent with you guys, and go to more networking events to meet more people and connections to hopefully move me further along in my career endeavors. This is definitely a goal of mine this year, so hopefully I can get it done.

4. Procrastination

mindfulness-procrastination

Seriously, if I had a dollar for every single time I’ve EVER procrastinated on my work, school stuff, house chores, etc., I would be freakin’ rich right now. I will say this, however that although I don’t necessarily take pride in always being such a procrastinator, I had found that (and yes this “theory” was tested SEVERAL times before), pushing to do any sort of work until the last minute, more often than not always ended up making me throw out my absolute best work in any type of papers, projects, etc. Of course now I’m no longer in school so really the only things that tend to get pushed back are things like cooking, cleaning and/or laundry, but nonetheless!

Ultimately this is a habit that I’m trying my hardest to get rid of altogether, because it really does just tend to hold you back and throw you off track.  I understand being and feeling lazy in certain instances, people feel like that all the time, including myself, but I promise you that in almost anything and EVERYTHING, it’s better all around for you to get shit done early and/or as soon as possible to get it out of the way so that you won’t have to worry about it later AND you can make time to do other things that you’ve been wanting to do.

5. Unsupportive/Fake People

94f3f7a5df7a5ed29641cfbc150c9751660220c137e729537a77b64f9dfa2a7c_1

Read this back again if you need to because it’s definitely one of the most important ones.

I have a ‘toxic trait’ where I’m so prone to cutting people off without thinking twice about it recently, and that goes for anyone, whether your family or friends, I have no issue with doing it for anyone. And it’s nothing personal, I just feel like I’ve gotten to an age where I have no time for people or things that aren’t doing anything to motivate, support or just generally be there for me. This is why I always say that my circle is SO small, because it really is.

I feel like people tend to get it confused where they think support means they constantly have to talk about, watch, or promote your work, business, etc., and it’s really not like that at all. Support can be any one of those things, at any given time. It doesn’t have to be ALL the time and it doesn’t HAVE to be every single thing that I put out there, but once in a while, support especially when you know the person is just starting out and can use all the support they can get, really does mean the world. Support can be shown in a variety of ways like reposting your name/video/song/business, etc., giving feedback to you about your work (whether it’s publicly on social media OR privately via DM and/or text), it can be simply asking you how your work is doing in general whether they actually know what you’re doing or not, or even just little words of encouragement every so often, the list can really go on and on, .

And I’ve found that there are SO many people that tend to claim they’re “friends” or “supporters” of mine but I’ve never heard a single word from them about ANY of my work. Also, let’s not confuse what I’m saying, I’m not hurt or anything because of this, I’ve learned to make my peace with the fact that that’s just how some people are and they would rather support absolute strangers as opposed to supporting people they actually know, but this is why I think it’s just easier for me and my well-being to cut them off altogether; or at the very least, just not trust them with knowing important/valuable information about the kind of work I’m doing.

6. Doubts

blog_77faq_doubting-300x200

I tend to struggle with doubting myself and my work a lot. I know the kind of work I’m capable of doing and putting out, but there’s still always something in me every so often that manages to let doubtful thoughts slip throughout my mind.

Having doubts about anything can be SUCH an annoying and shitty thing because it ends up making you second guess every little thing/detail imaginable to the point where you may not even want to put out what you’ve been working on for days/weeks/months, etc.

I’m learning to slowly let go of all of my doubts because I feel like as long as I’m doing things right, I have pure intentions and know what I’m trying to make the outcome out to be, then everything else will end up falling into place the way that it’s meant to be.

There is no use stressing about doubts and/or the outcome of things when you have no real control over how things are going to turn out. You gotta leave it up to God (or whatever superior being you believe in) and trust that He/She will not steer you wrong, and what’s meant to be, will always find it’s way.
