Ever have one of those moments, where a wave of happiness hits you?
This happened to me this morning whilst driving to the coffee shop.
Maybe it was the rush of endorphins from the mornings exercise, or even the daily caffeine spike.
Either way, all of a sudden whilst stuck in traffic, I realised that I was smiling from ear to ear.
Grateful, excited and motivated.
I appreciate it is not like this every day, but I also feel we can craft these moments intentionally.
It starts with the fundamentals.
Healthy amounts of sleep, consistent training in the gym, eating a well balanced nutritious diet, spending time in environments that bring you motivation, and spending time practising gratitude.
I have found that excluding uncontrollable bad instances, if you are feeling low and not at your best, it is typically a string of bad days and bad habits in a row.
Maybe, you have stayed up late for 2-3 nights in a row.
Maybe, you have been eating crappy fast food on repeat.
Maybe, you have been sitting still for too long and not exercising.
Maybe, you have over spent your monthly budget.
Or, quite possibly, you have been watching too much of the news.
The bad habits stack, and before you know it, your headspace is not where we want it to be, and this begins to affect your relationships, your performance in business and feels like a hole that you cannot get out of.
Even worse if you’ve been doing this for years and not days.
With all this in mind, I want to remind you that it is ok to not be at your best.
But, I don’t want you to stay there, and I am sure you don’t either.
Start being intentional with your efforts to implement the fundamentals.
Seek help, guidance and mentorship.
Decide on, and action change.
You don’t need a traumatic event to decide to be better.
By doing so, you’ll reap the benefits and internal happiness that comes from discipline with your positive habits.
Stack these days, weeks and years on end, and your life will change, your relationships will improve and your business will thrive.
I’ll be praying that you get hit by a wave of happiness soon.
Thanks for being a part of my journey.
