Why are we, as humans, always waiting for some crisis or major unexpected change to decide we need to have a better lifestyle or routine?
It is within our conditioning, socialisation and education system to love a cure, rather than a prevention. Only when we lose something do we realise its worth, as it may ring so true for some, if not most of us. Well, it was exactly what happened when I realised my life as a wellbeing practitioner in London needed to come to an end for greater and better things to happen.
I was completely disconnected from my long-term vision of happiness, and whilst I had read that we should begin with the end in mind, and that we should work backward, I felt as if I was not proactive at all. I did not do half of the things that would bring me the success I wanted to have, and I definitely was not being true to my core belief, that psychologists needed to share their tools before a crisis occured.
So here I am almost 3 years later, writing about my techniques for the lay-man, communicating psychological jargon for the general reader.
Here are some of the routine changes I made in order to feel more connected to my vision of success and desire to reach thousands more people, with my life-changing techniques.
Start your day with something special for you. Drink something green, healthy and non-fat. I challenge you to start your day without caffeine and go to bed earlier if needed.
Exercise and workout until you sweat, and your heart is beating. We have heard it before, I am sure, that happy hormones help us acheive focus, clarity and improve our moods.
Schedule activities into your diary/calendar directly. I do not think to-do lists are as effective because they do not deliver the sense of commitment we need to achieve our day to day objectives.
When we are connected to the activities we accomplish on a day to day basis, we are mapping out the direction to our weekly, monthly and long term goals. Our long term goals, should be more easily aligned with our visions, but if we can remind ourselves of them daily, that’s even better.
Psychologists have designed techniques such as vision boards, mantras and personal favourite mindfulness to help us connect our daily routine to our visions, and essentially our goals. This helps us to maintain the momentum and mindset to accomplish anything we desire, deal with setbacks and be consistent.
