A friendly reminder may come in handy for any tough days ahead. In today’s fast-paced world, many of us don’t have enough time in the day to get everything on our to-do list done. We have almost endless responsibilities and pressures. But, if you want to find success in both your personal and professional life, there are certain things that you need to make time for. We’re talking about everything from what to do after opening emails, tasks that arise from video meetings, or even doing household projects. And to function at a high level, we need a reminder of those things.
In today’s article, we’re sharing 5 friendly reminders everyone should set throughout their week. These reminders will help you slow down and focus so that you can better prioritize your personal and professional responsibilities. Everyone, no matter how smart or rich, needs to take a step back every once and while to reflect on what is important in their life, and remember that everyone needs to take time for self-care so that they can be the best version of themselves in their home and work life.
1: Difficult Times Make Me Stronger
Sometimes it can feel like the world is working against you and everything is going wrong. When this happens it’s important to keep it as a friendly reminder that the hard days are what make you stronger. As you navigate through trials and tribulations, you learn and grow. It might not feel that way while you’re going through it, but in the end you will be stronger as a result of working through difficult challenges. You will learn new skills, feel a sense of pride and you’ll have another life lesson under your belt. You’ve got this! A friendly reminder might just be what you need.

2: Inhale The Dream. Exhale The Failure.
We all experience failure. In fact, we probably fail at something at least once a day. These might be small failures or large ones. No matter their size, don’t let failure get you down. It is through failure that you find the biggest successes. If you never fail, you also never succeed. Rather than looking at a failure as a negative, remind yourself that each failure leads you one step closer to success. A daily reminder of this will help you feeling strong even when things don’t go your way.

3: It’s Not Selfish To Love Yourself.
How often do you prioritize your own happiness? Whatever your answer, it’s probably not enough. The happier you are, the more love you have for yourself, the better. You will perform at a higher level in both your personal and professional life if you are in a good place. If you feel confident, happy, and fulfilled, you will see that reflected in your projects, family relationships, friendships, and love life. This reminder should be set every single day. There’s always time for self-love!
4: Go For It.
You’ll never know what you are truly capable of if you don’t go for it. Have faith in yourself and your abilities. And, remember, you will never know what you can do unless you try. You might be surprised at what you learn you are capable of.
If you struggle with having faith in yourself and your abilities, check out our blog article on creating a morning routine. Routines are a fantastic way for building confidence.
The final, and arguably most important, reminder is to make time every single day for relaxation. Your brain and body need rest in order to work at full capacity. If you don’t make time for relaxation, you will soon find yourself burning out. If relaxing doesn’t come easy to you, work at it. Try a few relaxing hobbies, take a yoga class, or try an evening walk. There are almost endless ways to relax and what works for someone else might not work for you.
Setting daily, weekly, and monthly reminders can help improve all areas of your life. It’s a fast-paced world where personal and professional lives meld together. There’s pressure coming from almost everywhere and we often neglect ourselves. Setting reminders will help you stay on track, reach goals, and live a happier and more fulfilled life.
