When you are full of everything and you feel that nothing is working for you you want to try something different. You want to escape the mood you have fallen in and to try to motivate yourself. You want to try new things, to make something you like. Think about things that make you feel good and try to put them into practice from now on. They help you to escape where you feel that you are free from stress, monotony, bad thoughts and moods.

For everyone of us the list should look different according to hobbies, free time, personality, tastes, gender.

For me the list with such things would sound like this:

  1. I plan my holidays, my birthday party or another event from my life.
  2. I buy myself a new fragrance.
  3. I go to the hairdresser and change my haircut.
  4. I go to the pool.
