Lifestyle is the way in which a person lives.
My day starts early, early to what or whom. Early by my own standards at 05.55. It starts with a walk along the lake front with my best friend – not as often as I would like but at least 3 times a week. Starting the day with walking towards sunrise, along the lake front with my best friend next to me – what else can one ask for. I thank my stars and my life every time this happens. waiting for tomorrow morning as I haven’t walked for 4 days now.
We refresh ourselves with a dose of fresh carrot+beetroot juice at the entrance of the market before shopping for veggies and fruits. The day has started with planning lunch and making sure all the required ingredients are there.
Back home by 8.30, turning on my laptop and checking on what’s happening in the world while I slept, I simultaneously fix breakfast and clean the veggies for lunch. I am not a great cook and do not enjoy my time in the kitchen. I cook because I have to and I spent no more than 1 hour in the kitchen. By 10 am, the kitchen is cleaned and closed for the morning.
Depending on the schedule for the day, I then work, think, work, make phone calls, work, check face book, work and have fun till its time for lunch. Lunch time is at 1.30 and since I have the luxury of working from home, I enjoy a relaxed lunch and a wee bit of lie down and catch up on YouTube.
With a cup of refreshing tea at 3.30, I wear my creative hat and spend time building. Building for me making something from scratch, be it based on an idea in my head or stringing up beads to match an outfit, or sketching an outfit, or writing a blog on WordPress.
My evening are governed by the TV schedule. not much drama happens in my life and I don’t want to miss out the drama on TV. By 8.30, all the things I have planned for the day needs to be finished as its drama time on TV. Not the best of scenes, but dinner is with TV. 8.30 to 10.30 – my phone and computer get charged at this time too.
I also fit in visiting my parents every 2nd day, window shopping, trying a new dessert recipe, day dreaming, learning to let-go of the small things that would bother me, burning calories, teaching myself to get out of my comfort zone and try new things, catch up with friends (at least 1 everyday).
This daily routine reflects my lifestyle.
I see Lifestyle as the style with which one enjoys life. Everybody has a different life and a different style. Some people would say that I’m having it good and some others would say I’m having it bad. Everybody has their own ways of going about life in their own style. My style reflects on my life and my life reflects my style.
