I’m super stoked to share this email with you today. I packed idea #4 with a lot of simple shifts you can use to turn your life around this month. Lemme know if you have any questions!
Also, if you don’t feel good enough or are feeling lost, my new ebook + workbook was designed just for you. It’s coming soon, but I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the cover (I haven’t shown anyone yet…). Click here to take a peek.
Thanks for reading this week!
Question of the Week
One – last week’s results.
Last week, I asked you, when you think of changing your life, do you think you need to make big or small shifts and changes?
81% of respondents said, “small,” while 19% of respondents said, “big.”
While most people are overwhelmed by thinking they have to make a massive shift to change their life, that’s not the case. Changing your life can happen through seemingly insignificant shifts. Although you may not see immediate results, those small shifts will compound into big shifts over time.
Be less worried about the discipline success requires and more worried about the pain caused by regretting not doing the work.
Changing your life follows a 3-step framework:
- Be curious about new experiences
- Take action on experiences that interest you
- Follow through and make a plan to incorporate experiences/discoveries that resonate most
How to become unrecognizable in 30 days:
- Develop a recurring morning routine (15 min to 1-hour min.)
- Ideas: Journaling, movement, exercise, stretching, meditation, prayer, sunlight, morning walk, coffee, tea, self-care, skin routine, etc.
- Develop a recurring evening routine (15 min to 1-hour min.)
- Ideas: Journaling, stretching, tea, reading, mediation, prayer, sunset, even wind-down walk, self-care, skin routine, etc.
- Write down or repeat 5 positive daily affirmations every day as the first thing you do when you wake up
- No TV, phone, social media, news, texting, or email for at least the first hour of waking up (the longer the better)
- No TV, phone, social media, news, texting, or email after 9 PM
- Turn on Do Not Disturb mode during deep work and priority tasks
- No sleeping with your phone next to your bed (in your room is okay in case of emergencies)
Habits and Goals
- Make a list of bad habits to break and good habits to build
- Make a list of three goals you want to achieve in the next 30 days
- Use a habit tracker to track your morning/evening routines, building good habits, breaking bad habits, reduced phone usage, and monthly goals
- Plan and schedule your week in Google or Apple Calendar every Sunday before the start of the week; this should include all tasks/responsibilities, such as morning/evening routines, work tasks, breakfast/lunch breaks, etc.
- Make a list of people who surround yourself with and put a + or – next to their name to identify if it’s a positive or negative relationship
- Set boundaries between your negative relationships and surround yourself with positive people
