Feeling Stressed? Then Set Boundaries And Create Habits
MAYBE I HAD A TAD TOO MUCH PROTEIN IN MY DRINK!!
Well I done good. I posted my 1st blog article in a couple of years on Wednesday and folks actually saw it!! That’s always the first step in having a successful blog. At least that’s what they say. Not sure who “they” are but I’m sure it’s the truth because I read it online.
Anyway this article is not about blogging. It’s about setting boundaries in your business and your life. It’s about taking care of yourself first so that you are your best to be able to help others. We can only give others what we have.
So it’s important, at least to me, to be as strong as I can be in all aspects of my life.
My goal everyday is to take steps forward, spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally and to cause others no harm. If I do this, then I know from experience, that everything else will take care of itself.
In order to do this we must have boundaries, form habits and eliminate stress.
A few examples of the boundaries that I have set for myself are:
I shut all phones and internet devices off at 6pm Monday -Saturday. On Sundays I go off the grid completely.
My work hours are 4:30 to 7am and 10:30 am to 6pm Monday-Saturday.
7am to 10:30 am is my time for meditating, praying, working out and reading. This satisfies my goal of “take steps forward, spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally” and gets my day off on the right foot.
I do not let toxic and negative people into my life. I’m too old for this crap :) These people create stress in my life so I wish them well and move on.
And this is the most important thing I do…..I live in the present. I have no regrets from what I may or may not have done yesterday and certainly I don’t worry about what tomorrow may bring. I know for a fact that our entire world will be different tomorrow so why worry about it today?
These things seem simple but really aren’t. All of these require practice, difficult decisions and faith.
So folks put yourself first today. Create a life. Don’t just blindly take whatever comes your way. If you don’t want buyers and sellers to steal your time then don’t let them. Set boundaries and stick to them. Strive to be your best everyday.
And always remember it’s not about making money. It’s about helping folks and finding peace and happiness while doing so.
I guess that’s it for today. I hope this all makes sense and helps someone to get their life in order.
Until next time…...
I admire your routine and commitment to adhere to personal time..Im working at it.
