SMALL CHANGES YIELD BIG REWARDS


This year is all about restructuring the way I do business, fitness & personal care. Now that I've created a strategy to pursue my long term goals for 2019 (Check out this blog if you haven't), I've decided to focus on small changes that will improve my mood & overall health in my day-to-day operations. I want to share three habits I've modified & transformed into more effective routines to ensure I am at my best 99.9% of the time.


Productivity: Plan my weekends ahead of time.


I used to do whatever I felt like doing Friday's & Saturdays. But, as 2019 came in, I analyzed my weekend habits & understood I was not taking full advantage of my free time. Now, I sit down on Thursday & make a list of everything I would like/need to do. Mostly having to do with creative projects: writing blogs, recording videos etc. Think about it: you have two days where most people aren't working, therefore, you can focus on your creative projects without having to meet up with anyone or going to your job.

Nutrition: Coffee once a week


You may be thinking: coffee helps you get sh** done. Of course it does, but I surveyed my expenses & realized I was spending too much on a stimulant I don't need. Therefore, I'm limiting it to once a week & preparing tea in my house more often. I make sure the occasion is special by sipping an espresso with someone I haven't seen in a while. My digestive system is thanking me.


Fitness: Scheduling my workouts.


You would think fitness is my top priority. It is, however, this year, I'm making sure I plan my workouts ahead of time. By Monday I have the routine written in my agenda: which day I'm resting, when I'm doing strength training, cardio, yoga, etc. This way, I can plan out what I will eat that day & I can schedule meetings after I set my workout schedule & not the other way around. Last year, I would get caught up in #workmode & sometimes sacrifice my personal workouts AKA my "me" time for working. Working out is essential for my well-being & mental health. I will not sacrifice it this year.


These are not drastic changes in my routine, but rather, behavior modifications I have found effective through meditation & analyzing how I can improve my life. Two weeks into the new year, I feel positive changes in my health & focus. Find out what small changes need to be done in your routine. Focus on the three most important aspects of your life (ex: productivity, nutrition & fitness) & see if there are some minor tweaks that can be done to make your days more delightful. :)
