    • I'm also hoping to start sewing clothes for myself again.
    • I'd like to finish several more of the goals on my 101 Things in 1,001 Days list.

INFJ

  • trust your intuition : choose according to your gut feeling, not convention.
  • bring in art : hang art, others or your own, on the walls. Display other items that show your love of the arts, music, etc.
  • create orderly chaos : there can be conflict between expressing yourself and a need for order. Set up systems that keep mess in order but show off your creativity.

  • be more curious ... ask questions. Be open to new ideas, people and places. Try to look at things from a different angle.
  • don't be afraid ... even the most innovative artists let themselves be inspired by what already exists. Let go of the fear that your work may be derivative but rather see it as being inspired by what you see and hear. Build on it and make it your own.
  • change your routine ... if you start to feel like you're in a rut, change your routine. Even small changes like trying a new kind of coffee can open your eyes up in a new way.
  • give yourself quiet time ... you need to allow yourself time to absorb all the things you've seen and heard. Stepping away from social media and the internet also makes you less prone to comparison and self-criticism.
  • try something new ... try a new art or craft. Work in a different medium or combine materials that you normally wouldn't.

  • When you work to accept your body, that does not mean that you're "giving up" on your body or being healthy....
  • It makes me sad that our society has this idea that to accept your body means to throw in the towel and not care about yourself. I find that offensive, not to mention grossly damaging to all of us. I understand why it exists, though, because without it, how or why would we spend billions of dollars on diets, beauty products and whatever else we're sold in an effort to become a supposedly better version of ourselves?
  • Here's the real truth, though: there's absolutely nothing passive about accepting your body. Because to truly accept your body means to be attuned to its ever-changing needs. You don't just figure out your body's needs one day and then, check!, mark that off the list.

  • be patient!
  • drink lots of water
  • take Omega 3s
    • e.g. salmon, avocado, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, mangoes, eggs, spinach, sweet potatoes
  • wash your hair as little as possible; use dry shampoo instead. This helps prevent oily scalp.
  • a few hours before washing your hair, apply coconut oil to approx. the bottom third of your hair. Make sure it is:
    • cold-pressed, extra virgin
  • or try olive oil, honey, mayonnaise, or an egg mask before washing.
  • when washing your hair, only apply shampoo to your roots.
    • try using conditioner only.

  • Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning. We often don’t get enough water in our systems, and get so busy throughout the day that we don’t think about stopping to replenish our supply. Or we replenish with soda or coffee or tea but not water. Trigger yourself by leaving a big glass out on the counter or table. Or do what I do, and get a big travel mug with a lid. At night, I fill it up with a lot of ice and a bit of water, and in the morning it’s waiting for me: a nice, cool cup of water. Flush the toxins, kickstart your system, wake yourself up.
  • Park as far away as you can from the door. Fight the effects of a sedentary lifestyle by getting more steps into your day whenever you can. In fact, simple things like a longer stroll from the car to the door might be more effective than a vigorous work-out at counteracting the effects ...

  • Do not cold drinks with meals. Tea (e.g. green) is suitable, but not too much, and preferably half an hour before the meal.
  • Eat soup often. Soup is filling and the warmth stimulates the digestion.

  • Use small serving bowls and eat with chopsticks.
  • Eat rice, and ensure to mix it less processed versions such as brown, black or red rice.
  • Eat fruit for dessert, or skip dessert some nights.
  • Eat fish with healthy oils every day.
  • Choose Asian snacks such as seaweed snacks, nuts, dried fruit and seeds.
  • Eat according to the seasons: warming foods in winter and cooling foods in summer.

  • Be positive

Positivity makes you more attractive and resilient, with lower blood pressure, less pain, fewer colds, better sleep. Increase the number of positive emotions in your day, however fleeting. One can lead to another and so on, until we're in an upward spiral of positivity. Take a moment to find the good in a situation. Don't over-generalise ('I can never hold down a relationship'), jump to conclusions ('I'll never finish this job') or ruminate endlessly. Any healthy distraction - a run, a swim - that lifts your mood is good.

  • Be brave

Studies show people regret not having done things much more than they regret things they did. Why? We can rationalise an excess of courage more easily than an excess of cowardice, because we can console ou...

  • Only eat until you are 80% full. This is called Hara Hachi Bu in Japanese and goes back to Confucian teachings.
  • Avoid eating 3 hours before bedtime. If you are hungry, eat a small light snack or meal that's easy to digest.
  • Drink a glass of cold water when you first wake up. This kick-starts the metabolism in the morning. Optionally add some lemon slices for their detoxing effect.
  • Eat smaller meals more frequently.
  • Swap larger plates and bowls for smaller ones.
  • Stop drinking fizzy sugary drinks. Drink water and green tea instead. If that's tough, then slowly wean yourself off them, switch to fruit juice or cordial and slowly transition to water.

  • Every time you moisturise or apply sunscreen to your face, do the same to your neck and decolletage.
  • Remove makeup before exercising to allow the perspiration to flush out the pores.
  • Exfoliate regularly with a BHA and go to a dermatologist to for any ingrown hairs.
  • Treat wet hair very carefully. Don't twist up in a towel. Use soft cotton to dry it (e.g. an old t-shirt).
  • Use an eye cream and pat it on gently. Don't ever rub your eyes. Use eye drops to keep eyes from being dry if this is the reason for rubbing.
  • Rub a drop of moisturiser into your hands and then pat it onto your face to bring back a dewy look.
  • Dab a little clear lip balm on your eyelids over your shadow to make it look more three-dimensional.
