30 Day Life Improvement Plan - Day 21 Have a (1/2) Spa Day!

We've made it to Day 21 of our plan.  For today, we'll continue our weekly process of decreasing technology.  We'll also end this week's focus of renewing our energy by giving ourselves 1/2 of a spa day.  If you can manage an entire spa day, then you're definitely encouraged to do so.

Here's the plan:
1.  Reduce technology habit - Watch less TV, have the cell phone on "Silent" for a couple of hours or limit your computer usage.  Do whatever works best for you.

2.  1/2 spa day - Create your own 1/2 spa day or if you can only "spa" for 10 minutes during the day, then that'll work as well.  This is a chance to renew your energy by relaxing and doing something special for yourself.  Here are some ideas of what you can do for a spa day:
Drink hot lemon water
Meditate for 10 minutes
Read an inspiring book/your favorite magazine
Eat a light breakfast
Have a leafy green salad for lunch
Do a deep breathing exercise
Try some of the flexibility stretches from Day 19
Soak in the tub
Deep condition your hair
Massage scalp and/or feet
Write for 20 minutes
Describe your Ideal Day (again)
Use your senses to be conscious of what you're doing, your environment
Practice nature awareness during a walk

3.  Review Success Tool Kit - Review your tool kit for inspiration and as a reminder of your strengths.  Can you add any inspiring quotes/affirmations about energy or health to your tool kit?  Is there anything which needs updating?

4.  For 2 minutes, visualize yourself as having more energy

---Remember to do something from your enJoy List (Day 10) today, if you didn't get a chance to do so yesterday--- 

For tomorrow, we'll....
Rate our life and commitment to the 30 Day Life Improvement Plan
Review "Renewing Our Energy" 
   How has our energy changed this past week?
   How can we begin to eat our ideal way?
   How did some foods affect our energy?
   Which people/interactions gave us energy?  Which ones strained our energy?
Update Completed List (of projects/priorities)

Before we transition into our next theme of managing time, we'll spend a few days reviewing what we've worked on so far.  Almost every day we've been doing a different activity so I think it'd be wise for us to pause and review.  ; )

...and our daily routine so far-
Continuing to work on our 4 projects
Increasing our sleep, if needed
Deep breathing
Scalp Massage (optional)
Proper posture
Eating more energizing foods
Tracking how people affect our mood (energy level)
*If you're doing a daily affirmation, that's also great!

Of course, use common sense on this program and the standard of checking with a medical professional before beginning a health/fitness program applies here.
