No hangover from yesterday’s one-glass-of-wine-with-the-sun? Funny how those little moments, where you simply decide to enjoy that exact moment and to cheer to it, can feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. I, too, often forget how nice it is to just sit, enjoy what I have right there and let it be for a bit.
9. Call someone you haven’t called in too long
Now, you can take this as far as you like and make it as challenging as you choose. But today, pick up that phone to call someone you haven’t spoken for longer than you’d wish. Be it your nanna, your bestie, your mom, your ex-neighbour, or a random friend. Just call them to say hi and ask how they’ve been. That’s all. It’s so easy to get caught up in your busy life and put social contacts on hold, especially the ones with people you do not run into on a regular basis. It’s so easy to come up with things like ‘I’ll do that when this project finishes’, ‘I don’t have time to meet up with them the coming weeks anyway’, or ‘they’re probably just busy’, but all it takes is between a few minutes to half an hour (or more?), with no strings attached (no pun intended!). It doesn’t mean you have to go visit, it doesn’t mean you’re imposing yourself on them. It just shows you (still) care.
