You know what’s tough? Making sure that you take care of yourself first before anything else each day. I’ve read countless books and watched/ listened to hours of informational videos/ content about how to be the best person that you can be. There was consistency throughout all the content that I absorbed. Taking care of yourself first was the key from all the greats. I implemented this rule in my life. From experience, I can tell you that was the single greatest game changing life hack that I have ever done.
What do I mean by taking care of yourself first you ask? Well let me explain: In order to build a house, you need a solid foundation right? Your body and mind are most certainly the same way. Life is so much easier to win at when everything is working at an optimal level. When you make your mental and physical health a priority right away every day, your work, relationships, and happiness more easily falls into place. Let me lead you through what my mornings look like normally. I’ll wake up early. First I will go to the gym and focus on a different area of my body each day. When I come home I will have a healthy breakfast, followed by some light reading on a topic that I am trying to self improve on. Finally when, I feel that I have made adequate progress on those topics I will finally start on the blog. I make sure that I’m drinking plenty of water throughout the day. The party days are long gone now, and that certainly helps too. It is truly amazing what a healthy diet and lifestyle can do for oneself.
I am not saying that you need to steal my morning routine, however it does work really good for me! I am a creature of habit. That being said, it was very difficulty to commit to a new routine as it might be for a lot of you out there. There are so many that start and stop new routines. My advice for you, before you start showing signs of burnout, is to slowly implement these new tactics into your life so that they stick better. I was so stuck in my habits that it took me multiple tries over years to get that whole gym thing to stick. All that hard work payed off over time though as did the rest of my new found habits. Start with some small changes and work your way up. That was the only way that I was able to do it. Take care of yourself my friends. Your body will reward you.
