As a brand, Yea.Nice is constantly searching for ways to better itself. Whether it’s product quality, customer support, or faster service, there’s always room to improve. With the beginning of the school year right around the corner, we provided some suggestions that we think would make life better for you.
How much time do you spend awake, actively doing things? For most, the majority of the day is taken up by fulfilling responsibilities. So how much time do you spend resting? Recent statistics have shown that in the past decade, the average hours people spend sleeping has decreased by almost 25%. That means the staple 8 hours of sleep has now shrunken to 6 hours. Today’s society has us going “0 to 100 real quick” (Drake), and many of us aren’t making up the time we’re losing. If you think of humans as batteries, we’re expending most of our energy throughout the day. Which, in itself, isn’t a bad thing. It’s the “recharging” that’s causing the issue. People can only go so long before they get burnt out. Don’t let that happen to you this year. Rest, and remember rest doesn’t have to be sleep. Rest can be reading, spending time with friends or family, or it can be something completely different. Whatever it is that brings you energy and gets you going, make sure you set aside time from your day to do it.
“Never stop exploring.” For those who haven’t heard that saying, I’m sure you’ve heard of the company who coined the phrase – The North Face. As people, I believe we are meant to explore. It’s also important to realize that exploration cannot be limited to a single category. For example, at Yea.Nice, we explore new ideas, product designs, and color patterns. Basically, all things can be explored. So what has stricken your curiosity but hasn’t been acted upon? Maybe it’s culture. Maybe it’s art. Maybe it’s another country or people group. The point is exploration never stops, and neither should you. Experience life, and answer questions by discovering them yourself.
The dictionary defines passion as “a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything.” When I think of passion, I think of what it is that brings me joy, the thing I’ll gladly wake up for, even if I only got 2 hours of sleep. Spending time doing what you love is essential to life. I think it’s just as important as rest, because it’s another form of recharging. Whether it’s work, school, or just dealing with life, we all have things we need to do. If we only spend time taking care of the necessities, the lack of doing what you love will slowly eat away at your happiness. For that reason, I encourage you to join Yea.Nice and dive into your passions this school year. Do what you love, and enjoy every minute of it. Over time, your passions will develop and transform, and the more time you spend pursuing them, the more you’ll grow to love them.
Lastly, I want to highlight the importance of sustainability. Living life to the fullest is a great philosophy, but if you can’t sustain your lifestyle, it can be counterproductive. Balance is key. At Yea.Nice, we’re focused on making the brand grow, but we’re also focused on having fun at the same time. There are too many times we get caught up fulfilling one aspect of life and neglect others. When this happens, I think we need to take a step back and reevaluate. Steadiness and consistency are key components that lead to a sustainable lifestyle. Life moves fast, so find your pace and ride it out.
Here at Yea.Nice, we like to say, “It’s a nice life.” We want all of our customers and supporters to think the same and take full advantage of what life has to offer. The 4 habits mentioned above are only some ways we think people can improve their lifestyles. Find what makes you happy, and make yours “a nice life.”
