You Snooze, You Lose - It’s As Easy as 5,4,3…
’5 – OPEN YOUR EYES, 4 – DUVET DOWN, 3 – FEET ON THE FLOOR, 2 – GET READY, 1 – GO!’
Hundreds of people all encouraging me to get up an hour earlier to take control of my day obviously made an impact as here I am at 6am writing this. After two days of intensive training with Ed J Smith at the Ibis Hotel in Earls Court, it is time to commit to daily habits that will allow Phanyard to get to the next level. Ed’s positive feedback on the product and my passion to make it work is a good start but…what else am I going to change?
Delicious and Nutritious
Anyone who knows me knows that cooking is not my forte. However, I have a child who is avoiding meat and I actually quite enjoy healthy food so I am going to pick a meal from my numerous cook books with the kids and we can learn to cook it together.
Getting Outside – No Excuses
I know for sure that my mental health suffers in a big way if I don’t exercise regularly so that has got to be one of the changes I make. Even just a brisk walk outside for ten minutes can do wonders for my perspective on the world and turn a negative brain cycle into a positive one.
Groovy People – No Excuses
Surrounding myself with positive people, preferably on a similar journey, is a massive deal and something that I have been working on for a while now. Everyone has baggage, everyone has stuff they can whinge about but spending 3 minutes every day focusing on what you are grateful for can make all the difference. I like to document 3 fantabulous things a day on my phone so I can refer to the list anytime.
Choosing important over urgent is difficult when there is housework to be done, coffee to be drunk and telly to be watched but it is vital to stay focussed on the task in hand. Time is our biggest asset and wasting it is just not an option for me at the moment. I am lucky to have people around me that believe in me and will push me when I need to be pushed. Being accountable to these people is vital to keep me on track and consistent.
