It seems that I have way too many passions!!
There is a time where you are able to say:
”This what I love and this is what I want to do” and by clearly defining what that is its important to take the next step of actions.
For example, people may write a Bucket List of passions, pros and cons, a schedule to finish a goal and find a win each day. Occasions where you can find yourself doing what you love doing are the opportunities that everyone dreams of when they are growing up. However, it's not the only thing we must focus on, its not the only thing that matters, love or not - we must be SMART!
Fortunately, years ago I had a passion to be a singer, it took me my whole life to accomplish the goal of being recognized as a singer and yet that goal is still not completed.
Therein lies the problem.
Goals are great and passions are wonderful but if within that pursuit of a passion we tend to neglect everything else, was it worth it?
There must be an understanding that although we may not want to do something, because it's not something we enjoy or love doing, it must be done if it is a necessity of life. Yes, you are only one person and you may also know that it is difficult to do these task as an individual, without a team. You must mentally shift your passion and be careful of being overly passionate.
There is never going to be JUST ONE passionate thing that you need to find and do and then magically once its done everything will be better.
You are a human being who can make their own decisions.
So do not define yourself by your passions, define yourself by your accomplishments and pursuits. The joy comes from doing those things that you love and scheduling time to do everything your body, mind and spirit needs.
Establish a routine or habit in order to grow both physically and mentally.
Consistency is the key. Through this process - overtime - you will provide yourself with opportunities both physically and mentally that you never thought were possible.
Each morning of each day there is always a choice about what to do. However, what seems to take over whenever we try to put our best foot forward is trepidation. Establish these small habits to accomplish big goals.
Habits take up 40% of our day - YES 40% !! It seems crazy to think that we are controlled by what we do daily more than what we decide to do, this is in part because our mental pathways are triggered to do what is the easiest path possible to do a task (like the simple chores we are inclined to do everyday)
In order to complete the necessary tasks it's important to establish a morning habit. The Miracle Morning written but Hal Elrod is an amazing book that chronicles the tasks necessary to provide a productive morning that can produce a productive day. I highly recommend to adopt a morning practice in order to feel more accomplished, alive and ready to take on the tasks ahead. Here are a few tips in the morning chores that will kick start your day and re-start your habits toward a more productive and happier you:
Once you wake up in the morning there are many benifits to working out. Some of which are because of our bodies metabolism usage once we are awake after a good nights sleep but the few that are important is time management and happiness.
The morning workout guarantees your to feel accomplished right away as well as provides endorphin to kick start a happier you before heading off to work and other obligations.
“A bout of exercise increases your focus on the next activity, because your body is aroused. What follows a morning workout? For most people, it's the office or school. Hence, one of the advantages of working out in the morning is that you're more alert during those later hours.” - Bodybuilding.com
There are many benefits to showering at night, such as if you have dry skin or have a hard time getting to sleep but a fresh and clean body is always a great feeling to have, especially in the morning after a sweaty workout. Also, it is best to wash up in order to provide your body with a re-start to kick-start a productive and exciting day.
In fact, Hello giggle.com states that if “you work out in the early morning. Wouldn’t make much sense to get a shower at night, only to hop out of bed and hit the jogging track at 6 a.m. If you’re a morning gym rat, grab a quick shower after your workout.’
This one reason alone especially sold me the idea of the morning wash-up because if “you are a creative person (or need to be creative for your job). Taking a shower is a lot like meditating, because you enter a relaxed-yet-alert alpha brain wave state — a state that’s perfect for coming up with good ideas.”
Eating breakfast has long been considered the most important meal of the day because it provides better health benefits, greater energy, and provides cognitive function advances through the waking hours.
However, the main benefit is that if breakfast is eaten within two hours of waking and provides the calories of 20-35% of your guideline daily allowance (GDA). This means that we are less likely to compensate for bad habits later in the day.
Which means as long as “our body is provided with calcium, iron and B vitamins as well as protein and fibre we would be able to worry or think about those choices throughout the day. Freeing us from the guilt and shame and setting us on the course to give the body what it needs like Fruit and vegetables since they are a good source of vitamins and minerals.”
So try to include a portion of your daily five at breakfast, whether that be a banana or glass of fruit juice.” - www.shakeupyourwakeup.com
Not into sitting still and mediating? Just hear me out, meditation activates your parasympathetic nervous system for relaxation, so if your mind races and worries then meditating helps delegate the “noise” into clearly defined places to process them. I
It also doesn't hurt that even a few minutes of silence the emotional energy boost is enough to provide “wake-up fuel” for the start of day, which can save you from relying on the usual morning ritual, like having a coffee.
Also, since “daily meditation helps to release stress, it can make you more compassionate — and in the process, you become less judgmental and critical of others.” - www.mindbodygreen.com
Create habits that will create a better you is a passion we should all aspire toward.
