If you want a kickass biz… you gotta be firing on all cylinders.
You can’t expect to have energy and drive if you’re exhausted AF.
Or pounding down sugar, Doritos, and fast food on the regular.
(Though pretty sure the rest of my fam would like to take me up on that challenge, LOL)
Which is on Wednesday, June 8th. And again, free when you show up live!
As strong as our intentions are to do all.the.things and show up as our highest and best self every day…
There are days when we all feel like throwing a big old adult-sized toddler tantrum and go “I don’t waaannnna!”
The (sad) fact is… that didn’t work then. And it’s not gonna work now.
So here’s what you get to do instead:
- Step 1: Accept that you’re human. And this ebb and flow is natural.
- Step 2: When that desire to kick and scream and be lazy hits (as it will), I encourage you to lean in.
Lean into your habits. Lean into your self-care. Lean into prioritizing your wellbeing.
Because for so many of us (espec women), we tend to throw out what we need for ourselves when sooooo many other things are calling for our attention.
Which impacts our productivity, drive, and motivation.
The trick is to create a wellness routine that works for your ACTUAL life. So you can *show up* professionally, as well as handle all your personal responsibilities on the daily.
You don’t want to blindly follow a wellness routine you heard about from some social media “guru”. Or just do what works for your friend.
And for the love of everything holy, don’t follow some celeb’s routine. They literally get paid to work out 5 hours a day.
So let JLo be JLo… and you be you. Run your own race, my friend.
This is about you. Your life. Your work. Your schedule. Your balance. And YOUR biz.
Give yourself grace. Show yourself some compassion. Treat yourself like you would your own bestie. And figure out what makes you feel and perform at your best.
Because wellness is not something you earn. It’s legit essential for you to keep going – and be successful long term.
So how do you create the perfect personalized wellness routine? So you can be productive AF and have natural energy all day long?
You lean into three key categories.
The 3 Pillars of Wellness for Better Productivity
1. Nutrition for productivity.
Food is literally what sustains us.
So why do I hear about people being so busy they forgot to eat lunch? Or there just wasn’t “time” for a sitdown meal so they pounded down snacks all day?
What you eat matters. Food is fuel. And if you wanna show up and rock your biz, you gotta fuel up like a pro.
This is why you need to create your own nutrition routine that’s built into your wellness.
First things first… get to know yourself.
Do you need a good hearty breakfast to start your day off right?
Does meal prepping on Sunday for the week help ensure you actually eat lunch everyday?
Do you perform better when you do intermittent fasting? (I do.)
Are you reaching for caffeine or sugar as a crutch?
Maybe what you actually need is more sleep. (And maybe some almonds – which are natural energy boosters. #nojoke)
When it comes to food, it helps to look at it from a nutritional POV.
Way too many people see food as comfort. As actual love.
Switching your mindset to see food as fuel actually helps you make better choices.
As does being mindful and AWARE of your daily habits.
If you haven’t done this before, spend 1 week creating a food diary – as well as how you’re feeling when you consume something.
Did you reach for chocolate because you’re feeling drained? Or stressed? Or annoyed?
Tons of us are emotional eaters. Pay attention to your current patterns… and write them down – without judging yourself.
Once you see what your current reactions are, you’ll be able to make conscious shifts that actually help you feel better in your body, mind, AND emotions.
2. Movement for productivity.
Are you someone who has an emotional reaction to the word “exercise”?
After the last couple of years, A LOT of us are feeling the pinch of getting out of a daily movement routine.
Guilt, shame, and poor self esteem have been coming up for a lot of people.
So I wanna offer this bit of advice if that’s your headspace right now.
Commit to a daily practice of movement. Not “exercise”.
It doesn’t have to be a 30 min jog around the block. Or a sweaty ass spin class. Or a HIIT video on YouTube.
Getting up and moving around could mean:
- Standing up from your desk and stretching once an hour.
- Going outside to walk your dog.
- Parking farther away from the grocery store to get a few more steps in.
- Doing laps in the pool.
- Surfing, paddleboard, or some other activity you enjoy. (Can you tell I’m mentally at my house in San Diego? LOL)
Rather than thinking specifically about exercise, I want you to focus on movement and its role in your wellness routine.
As necessary to the success of your biz as hitting deadlines. Networking. And attracting your ideal customer or client consistently.
When you move your body, your body releases tension – and endorphins.
Here’s a hack you can steal from my personal playbook… schedule movement time into your calendar. At least 30 minutes daily.
By putting it on your calendar every day – and doing something FUN that you enjoy – you’ll create a consistent routine.
And help clear away mental fatigue… boost those happy hormones… and let your body flush out toxins effectively.
So you can hit that peak performance state consistently… and level up your biz with way less struggle and effort.
3. Mental health for productivity.
Your wellness is not just tied to the physical aspects like nutrition and movement.
Mental health is a HUGE factor. Probably the most important one actually.
Because when it comes to finding balance and feeling good, your mind is 100% involved.
In fact, your mental health is the #1 factor that determines whether you stay the course… or slip back into unhealthy patterns.
And it’s also the hugest (and most undervalued) aspect of what separates those who are “successful” from those who struggle with the grind day in and day out.
What lights up your soul? Helps break the tension when you’re feeling anxious… depressed… stressed out… or whatever emotion is holding you back from performing at your peak?
Do you have a list of hacks you can reach for? Activities that make you happy and bring you balance.
Maybe it’s watching The Office for the 20th time. Or diving into a “so crazy I can’t stop watching” show (hello, new season of Stranger Things – talk about so crazy LOL).
Maybe you find baking to be cathartic. Maybe you find peace restored by snuggling with your pup. Or other people’s pups. LOL
The truth of the matter is… emotions are temporary. I know it doesn’t feel that way in the moment.
If you have recurring, swirling thoughts… journaling is a wonderful tool to get your feelings out on paper.
I’ve often noticed that recurring thoughts go away when they’re written down. It helps the brain relax. And the little voice inside you feel heard.
You get to come up with your own mental health toolkit.
You get to take care of yourself… put yourself and your own needs first. And you get to NOT feel bad about it either.
You are the foundation of your biz. You are the author of your life. You are the hero of your own story.
You have everything in you already to manifest anything you desire.
And if you’re ready to align your body, mind, and spirit for a healthier, wealthier life… and unleash your full potential…
Then I’m inviting you to be part of the ultimate wellness revolution.
In the On the Edge Summit (Wednesday, June 8th) you’ll be part of a full day of conversations, biohacks, and holistic wellbeing strategies to manifest your dream life.
