We can all agree investing in our futures, through education or managed funds for example, is good, but we often don’t invest enough in our state of mind.
Here’s four investments I think you should make for your current self:
- Invest in candles – your home will smell nice and there’s something great about having a tea or dinner and a conversation by candlelight
- Invest in flowers – buying a bunch of flowers every second week makes your home lovely and welcoming. Flowers don’t need to be expensive – there are plenty you can find for $5-$10 a bunch (if you’re really stretched for money you can pick some from your garden or find some)
- Invest in a magazine subscription – having a magazine regularly delivered to your door full of thought provoking articles is a reminder about the benefits of reading and eduction. I’d recommend The Big Issue and The New Philosopher magazines which are both available as subscriptions.
- Invest in a nice fragrance: having a nice cologne/fragrance that I can wear immediately uplifts me. I stick to the one brand I know won’t give me headaches though.
