So I made a great video on FB live this morning and the connection cut off most of the sound. Boo.
Here’s the summary:
- When you wake up in the morning, focus on your thoughts. I try not to tell myself “you’re sore, you’re tired, you should sleep another hour” and instead tell myself “you’re sore, that’s awesome. Time to hit the mat and work out some soreness.” Your thoughts determine your attitude toward your day.
- Along those lines, are you a Manic Monday kind of person or are you a every day is an opportunity kind of person? Instead of hating Mondays, make it a Marvelous Monday, a Terrific Tuesday, etc.
- Related to yesterday’s post, it’s important to make your list of requirements to know what you need to hit your goals. Then pick something that satisfies most of the requirements and commit to it. The deciding phase is the hardest for me. Once I commit it’s about checking off those boxes. Focus on what you hope to achieve with the program and go all out.
In the midst of all this struggle and centering, I’ve also been homeschooling. Here’s my top tip as a “veteran.” Last year I worked out of our kitchen so I could cook and do other things while the girls were working. This year I “gave up” the office and we only do school upstairs. It’s helped with focus and having the map up at all times, but it’s also helped with being able to leave things as they are and close the door.
