How to Savor Life, Stress-Free and In Style

Written by: Angela Kim



Time to read 2 min

In the past three weeks, I’ve shared how I structure my days: Be, Do, Savor. 

Mornings are dedicated to "Being" - this includes meditation, Kundalini fusion yoga, and planning. 

The "Do" is my workday, where I focus on manifestation and productivity.

The "Savor" segment is for evenings and extends into weekends and vacations. This is when I savor time with loved ones and friends–whether we're cooking, watching movies, going out dancing, or simply chilling.

Today, I'm sharing a concept that has helped me to "savor life" stress-free. Everyone talks about saving for a rainy day or retirement savings (both are very important), but it’s rare to talk about saving for a sunny day. 

Why is that? Isn’t it just as important to save for things that we can’t wait to experience?

Think about what it conveys to our soul, mind, and spirit to put so much energy into only saving for a “rainy day.”

What about saving for a “sunny day” to celebrate and savor life?

This energetically opens up the channel to receive more abundance, fun, and laughter. 

Whether you want to go on a magical vacation, eat at a Michelin-star restaurant, buy that coveted handbag, or have a spa day, savoring these moments with cheerful abandon can be both revitalizing and refreshing.

However, sometimes the guilt of indulgence, especially when we feel we don't deserve it or can't afford it, hinders us from fully enjoying these restorative moments in life. And then we stop doing the things we love because guilt blocks our bliss. 

In my 20s, I established a ritual that I do to this day, and it has become one of my favorite practices: every paycheck, I transfer some money into our Sunny Day fund to savor life experiences. This fund is a tool to enjoy the “savor” entirely guilt-free.

This Sunny Day fund has funded beach trips to Thailand, memorable camel riding adventures in Jordan, meaningful dinners, and more.

Your Sunny Day fund is a symbol of abundance; you can indulge in your heart's desires, free from judgment. You've earned it, you deserve it, and it's yours to savor fully. 

To build this fund, I transfer about 5% of my paycheck weekly. Even if you start with 1%, the key is consistency. This ritual is not just about saving money; it's about cultivating a mindset of abundance.


Imagine the rejuvenation you'll feel when enjoying a treat fully funded by your Sunny Day fund, a tangible representation of your commitment to savor life. ☀️
