DO-RE-MI Newsletter: Use 80/20 Rule on Your Health ☀️

Hey friends 👋🏻

Here are Doable ideas, Reflections and Mindfulness to try out this week.

Doable ideas 💭

A recent discovery of my overwhelm management strategy: write a detailed to-do list with time next to each item so that I know exactly where I need to be and what I need to do at any given moment.



What strategies do you use to regain a sense of control?

Reflections 🪞

When’s the last time you felt calm and everything was under control?

Mindfulness 🧘🏻‍♀️

No amount of spending time with friends, on the beach or going to float therapy can untangle a chaotic mind. Real self-care applies to the mind too – whether that be finishing a project so you feel less overwhelmed, or doing a 5-minute meditation to create distance from what you’re experiencing.


A little summary of my chaotic January.


I wrote this advice for myself when I felt some early signs of burnout (is it possible to feel burnt out 22 days into the new year? Asking for a friend.)


I started off the year strong, but my sleep, diet and productivity became a mess after saying yes to more opportunities. Everything became “urgent” and “important”.


In times like this, all I could do was to acknowledge and accept: it’s just a season of life, and I will manage.


That said, I’m still keen to increase meditation next week. What’s your plan for mindfulness next week?

Ideas Worth Pondering 🧠

Our standard of living and level of technology have never been better: we are always only one swipe away from getting food, information, and hell, even love. All from the comfort of our couch. We barely move, go outside, or talk to a real person.

No wonder most people lack energy and motivation these days.


Most of our problems can be solved by going back to basic human needs:

  • Getting enough sleep and daylight → better mood, energy and performance level
  • Getting balanced nutrition → fuel/grow/repair our body
  • Getting daily movement → strengthen bones and muscles, improve brain health, reduce health risks
  • Spending time outdoor → lower levels of stress, anxiety and depression


These are the 20% of things that contribute to 80% of positive emotions.


Start bringing the good days back.
