Keep an energy audit is something that is incredibly powerful. When you become aware of what is draining you and what is energising you, you gain control. Continue to implement the things that work and eliminate the things that don’t.
1. Don’t rely on motivation. Rely on habits.
Motivation can come on strong and then slowly fade away. Focus instead on building habits. As strong habits will help you through those days when motivation is lacking.
2. Stay clean.
It’s easy to eat rubbish, binge on TV, stay in your pyjamas and drink excess alcohol all of which may help you feel better momentarily. But once the dopamine hit is gone and the body responsed you will feel 100 x worse. Instead double down on your health and take control of your well being.
3. Find the lesson in the struggle.
Pain and hardship can bring some of the most significant breakthroughs and lessons. Constantly ask yourself; what’s the gift wrapped up in this disguise? Seek opportunity in every obstacle.
4. Delete the apps.
They’re are literally designed to keep you engaged and consuming for as long as possible. You will be amazed at what happens to your mind when you stop consuming and start thinking freely.
5. Write down your thoughts.
Clean the mind by getting it all down on paper. This makes it easier to figure out exactly what’s going on and the best way to work through it all.
6. Take a break.
We live in a society that’s obsessed with go, go, go. If you’ve been non-stop, you may just need a good old fashion rest. Reconnect with yourself, take care of yourself and focus on building your overall wellness. Mentally and physically.
7. Fuel your mind.
Audit what you are fueling your mind with and switch it up. Start listening to audio books, podcasts, reading and videos that help you grow. What you surround yourself with, fuels your thoughts and governs your actions. So choose your mind food carefully!
