You may have heard <a href=” rel=”nofollow”http://www.motivationalspeakers.net.au“>motivational speakers</a> talk about being motivated every single day. A motivational speaker may give tips as to how they spend each morning preparing for the day ahead and what works for them. Whilst every single person is different, and everyone will have a different approach that works for them on an individual basis, there are certain habits that can be started and developed to help you reach your goals each day. There are certain tactics that can enable you to make the most out of each day and not feel like your day is set out to be a trainwreck from the get go. If you want to be your best every day, you really need to consider the way you start each day and how you react as the day goes on.
Hit the Ground Running
When you wake up in the morning, what do you do? Do you hit the snooze button on your alarm for the following twenty minutes after it started waking you up? Or are you out of bed straight away and getting ready for work? The way you wake up and what you do as soon as you wake is a good determinant for how the rest of your day is going to pan out.
If you are awoken by your alarm clock and you hit snooze twenty times, you’re already in a “put it off for later” mindset. You’re already being sluggish and letting the beginning of your day start to reflect how you’re going to react to situations as the day goes on. If you set an alarm for 7a.m, make sure you’re getting up as soon as you’re woken by that alarm.
What’s the best way to clear the cobwebs and wake your body from its sleep? Exercise. You don’t need to do an hour of cardio and strength training for this to be effective. How much you exercise and what type of exercise you do will very much depend on you as an individual. They key is to undertake an activity that you actually enjoy. If you hate running and force yourself to run for half an hour because you read somewhere that it’s good for you, you might see yourself give up that habit after a few days to a week.
If there’s a type of exercise you know you enjoy (or at the very least, can handle doing each day) then that’s a great option to choose. Even if it’s something as simple as yoga, swimming or walking, the fact is that it’s an activity you enjoy so you’re likely to keep it up. Try the activity each day and determine which amount of time works best for you. If it’s an hour walk, then stick with it. Just because a 20 minute running session works for your friend doesn’t mean that it’s the optimal exercise or time for you. Each individual is going to have an activity that works best for them.
Get Your Brain Working
Everyone has a certain activity or “thing” that gets your brain working and stimulated. It doesn’t matter what it is, so long as it works. You might find that reading a book gets you going. Or, perhaps listening to a motivational podcast or watching motivational videos on Youtube on your trip to work helps. Maybe, it’s as simple as listening to some upbeat music as you get ready. Whatever it is that starts to get your brain working and thinking should be completed each morning.
If possible, set aside 30 minutes in the morning each day to do that thing. Depending on the activity, you may be able to do it whilst getting ready for work, eating your breakfast or travelling to work. Wherever you do it, ensure that you can focus on it and allow it to get you thinking.
Don’t feel like you need to listen to a podcast or watch a video from only the most popular motivational speakers in the world, either. Find someone that inspires you, for whatever reason. There are <a href=” rel=”nofollow”http://www.motivationalspeakers.net.au“>celebrity speakers</a>out there who are completely different from the next. Some offer business motivation, while others will help to inspire you with family and love life. The best thing to do is to search around for what interests you and which public speaker you feel like you can relate to most.
Every day, there is literally a plethora of things to remember and keep track of. How do you ensure you’re not forgetting anything? The key to staying focused and motivated throughout the whole day is to plan ahead. If you know at the start of the day what you’re going to get accomplished, then you’re already one step ahead.
You can plan your day either the night before, before going to sleep or you can do it during your morning workout, if that suits you. You need to know what works for you. If planning the next day the night before makes you wide awake, then clearly this isn’t the best strategy. Instead, do your daily planning at the start of your day.
The key to planning your day is determining what you need to do and how long it will take to complete. This will get your day in motion and will help you to work out what tasks are more important and what ones can wait. If possible, you can delegate tasks to other people that can complete the tasks for you. How long this takes depends on you, your personal scheduling and how you work.
These three actions are the keys to a productive day. The idea is to keep it consistent. So, if you can do these things each day, day in and day out, without almost a second thought to it, you’ll notice that you’re always ready and prepared for each day with better focus and the drive to do well each day.
