It’s hard sometimes to focus on what it is we want to achieve. I know I always have so many ideas floating around in my head I rarely get around to settling on just one to work on. I guess I am the creative type in that sense. I need to have the productive type by my side to push me along! Who out there can relate to that?
There are many ways to try to focus our minds. Right now I am taking even as little as 5 minutes each morning just to think about what it is I want to achieve today. Maybe today’s the day you want to start working out? Then your intention today is simply to do that, if nothing else! I always find the earlier we get things done the better. Procrastination will get you nowhere! Especially when it comes to fitness….how many times have you intended to get to yoga at 6pm but can’t get off the couch? Happens all the time!
Meditating is also a great way to start the day. But sometimes you can feel pressured to meditate a certain way. There is no right or wrong way to meditate. It’s simply about experimenting and figuring out what works for you. We are all different. All with different bodies and minds. So don’t think that one person’s way of meditating is going to be the best for you. I am choosing to read one of my most inspiring books each morning before I even get out of bed. This sets my mind on the right pathway for the day, gets me in a good mood and keeps me focussed.
A great friend told me yesterday that everyday is an opportunity. That every meal is an opportunity for growth and if we are aware of self love then we can be the most incredible person you can be each day. So work hard, play hard, eat your veggies and live life to the fullest.
