How to Change Your Life in 10 Minutes
Today we’re sharing three things that only take 10 minutes of your time — maybe even less. The great thing about them is that they have long-lasting benefits. Some of the items on this list might seem simple, but you’d be surprised how your life can improve by them. Take time to meditate, work on your average performance, and improve your reading speed. These three things can change your life forever. Read on to find out how.
Meditation. Learning to meditate is a quick-to-learn skill that can affect the rest of your life. Take 10 minutes to calm your mind and breathe; don’t think about work or responsibilities — this is your time to relax and focus. Meditation has many benefits, some short- and some long-term. Many online videos teach how to meditate. Some people will even find their own way to do it. To read up on some of the many benefits that 10 and even 20 minutes of meditation can bring into your life, see these 8 ways meditation can improve your life.
Improving Performance. Learning to improve your average performance is something that can be done in short stretches each day. While we are often taught to improve our peak performance (a term here which usually means the maximum ability that a person can perform), we must not overlook our average performance. Whether you want to work on your average speed on your bike or an average number of assignments you complete at work, commit 10 minutes a day to work on them. As you work consistently day after day, you’ll begin to see your peak performance rising as your average performance improves.
Reading speed. Working to improve your reading speed is a great skill that can come in handy during work or leisure activities. Since we are reading every day — subtitles, signs, restaurant menus — it can be beneficial to learn how to read faster. A great way to improve your reading speed is by listening to audiobooks. Many audiobooks have a function that reads through a book at a faster speed. While this might be hard to understand or confusing at first, it won’t take more than 10 minutes for your mind to adjust.
Whether you’re relaxing inside your Liv Ahwatukee apartment or enjoying the evening somewhere in Phoenix, AZ, take a few minutes out of your daily schedule to try at least one of these three items on our list.
