It’s been ages.

"
  1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise.

    2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable.

    3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it.

    4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else.

    5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything.

    6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

    7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small.

    8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full.

    9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle.

    10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

    11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog.

    12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through.

    14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything.

    15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends.

    16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you.

19 REASONS TO LOVE SUNDAY
1. Brunches that last a good few hours and contain at least a few tomato juice or champagne-based alcoholic beverages.


2. The kind of conversations that only happen over a slightly-hung-over brunch with friends, because you’re all just a little too achy/out of it to care about pretenses.


3. Knowing that your errands are done for the weekend and you can just sit on your ass all day and not feel guilty about it.
4. Taking long walks that go absolutely nowhere, and which allow you to just discover parts of your city you’ve never seen before.
5. Farmer’s markets, and actually getting to see the people who bring your food to the table.
6. Spending a whole afternoon reading over old letters and messages and emails with people and remembering how you felt about them at one time in your life.
7. Sitting next to the window when it’s raining and watching the drops form against the glass, only to fall in long streaks and run into other drops along the way.
8. Meeting up with someone for coffee that lasts for several hours, because you realize you are always talking during the work week when you have someplace else you need to be.
9. Spending all day preparing a meal for no reason in particular, just because it’s nice to slow-cook food and being in the kitchen is something you don’t get to do often enough.
10. Tea. Tea. And then some more tea, but mostly just tea.
11. Spending the day outside with friends, slow-cooking stuff on the barbecue and watching the sun move across the sky with a beer sweating in your hand.
12. Sleeping until way too late, and then still being tired enough for a nap (which you don’t even feel guilty about taking).
13. Calling someone and spending the whole day just listening to them talk, remembering how much you missed hearing their voice.
14. Watching a marathon of your biggest guilty-pleasure show while eating snacks in bed and not even being remotely aware of what time it is.
15. Making a batch of cookies for yourself, and eating them while they’re still warm.
16. Laying out in the sun all day and reading a whole book, which is something you do so rarely you forgot that you are able to finish it in one sitting if you don’t have anything else to do.
17. Dedicating a whole afternoon to really cleaning your apartment, the kind of cleaning which you don’t often do but which always makes you feel like a much better person when it’s done. (The kind where you just sit back and admire how clean and fresh and organized everything feels.)
18. A glass of wine by yourself while watching a movie near an open window.
19. The feeling you get when you realize that, yes, you’ll have to go back to real life tomorrow, but you still have a whole day ahead of you that is exactly what you want it to be.
