How you can improve your health, manage stress, and take back control of your life.
It's 8am, your alarm just went off. Instead of standing up and stretching properly, like they do in those mattress commercials, you hit snooze and roll the cover over your head and curl into what feels like a is going to be a dreadful, long work day. Sound familiar? Now, imagine yourself for a second with a completely different scenario. This time, same alarm goes off, but you smile. You turn the sheets over, sit there to gather yourself, and pick yourself up and start your day. The difference? Actual contentment with waking up, because you know you have a great day ahead of you. That’s the key. The secret is to have something to look forward to the next day.
This is the part where i'm sure you're asking, this sounds great and all but this ain't no fairytale! Well, truth is... life is hard, sure, but it doesn't have to be resentful. Below are the tips and tricks that will help you prepare for your work day.
1.Get yourself excited for the next day
Throughout each day, pay attention to what excites you. Don’t do what I did. I used to work for a large corporation, where I really had no time to think about what my plans were for the weekend or where I was going after work. Heck, I barely ate lunch most days because we were so busy meeting deadlines. My point is, if you knew me, you'd know I preach about living a balanced lifestyle. You can have all the money in the world, but if you're not enjoying your time, what are you really living for, right?
2.If your schedule isn't full, you're not doing it right.
That's right. For you to be able to completely relax, you have to know all your ducks are (somewhat) in order, right? And I mean to be able to really relax. That feeling you get when you're lying down as if in a canoe, floating in large body of water, with nothing there but large mountains.. a slight breeze, and maybe, just maybe the sunrise if you're lucky. As the sun is setting, birds are gathering, and everything and everyone gets ready to wined down. So, don’t let your mind get busy. If there’s a lot going on, write everything down. One pro tip is to break up tasks throughout the week. Obviously you cant get everything done in one day, so no sense of freaking out about it. Make a list of 3 important things and make them a priority to finish. This helps you manage your work load and be able to reject any future commitments you don't have time for.
3.Hold it Down
So by now you have an idea how to start. This is how you keep the momentum: remember that the flow will continue. Whether you decide to
10.Now, time to get into it!
If you're not completely in it - Get out of it.
You know that feeling when you have an exam the next day, and you know you have to study. You've made time for it, you have your book out, open on the first chapter. You’ve been staring at it for 30 minutes, so of course... you deserve to pass, right? No. Staring at your textbook doesn't mean you're actually absorbing all of the information. Unless you have photographic memory, there’s no sense in just staring. So, if you aren't completely in it, get out of it. Leave the textbook aside and either meditate by sitting near a window, making you able clearing out your thoughts, or get some exercise. Both are ways to alter your current state of mind and clear any roadblocks you may be having from access boredom.
