How To Start Journaling And Make It A Habit

Aug 02, 2018

Many people find it easy to start journaling.  The difficult part is making it a habit.  After a couple of journal entries the pages go blank.

 

Here are the top five questions asked when you are considering to start journaling.

 

Why should I journal?

Journaling takes away the overwhelm of what you’ve been thinking about and actually addresses some of the difficult decisions you have been trying to make.  Get everything out of your mind and written down that you’ve been thinking about.  Use journaling as a stress reliever to organize your thoughts.  Journaling your thoughts on a topic can clear your mind and allow you to focus on what you need to accomplish.

 

What should I write about?

Start writing about what’s going on in your life.  Write down what you did that day, decisions you’re struggling with, things you’re grateful for, what you’re reading or listening to, and what you’ve...

The Power Of Music

Jul 26, 2018

Have you ever heard a song and all of a sudden you’re singing along, transported back in time to when you first heard that tune?  You can remember hearing Taylor Swift for the first time as you as you drive down the 101 on a hot, sunny day.  Soon you’ve got all her albums and memorized the lyrics to put on your best performance as you sing into your fist microphone.  It takes you back to when you were a child and dreamed of being a singer.  Where you were holding live concerts in your bedroom and honing your vocal skills.  That is the power of music.

 

Music is a transformational outlet.  Today I find myself singing along in the car or in a store when a tune comes on that I can’t resist lip syncing too.  Music holds a deep personal connection for all of us.

 

What you decide to listen to will often depend on your mood.  If you’re feeling nostalgic you may choose something from your younger years like a boy...

5 Steps to a Successful Day

Jul 18, 2018

A successful day starts the night before!

 

A lot of us have a daily routine.  We wake up, have some coffee, get ready for work and then come home have dinner, go to bed, and do it all over again the next day.

 

But, is your routine setting you up for success?

 

A successful day starts the night before.  Prepare for tomorrow before you go to bed.  This will allow you to wake up with initiative and know exactly what you should be doing instead of sleepily muddling through a boring routine.

 

1. Water

The first thing I encourage you to do is to start your morning with at least 18 ounces of water.  I love Swell bottles.  I fill a 25 ounce water bottle up before I go to bed.  I keep that water bottle next to my bed at night so when I wake up I can easily rehydrate.  After hours sleeping we are extremely dehydrated when we wake up.  Start your day with fresh water to hydrate and wake you up.

 

2. Breakfast

A successful day...

The Strong Why Behind Achieving Your Goal

Jul 11, 2018

Setting a goal and going for it is not enough.  You need a strong why behind achieving your goal.

 

Why is it important to achieve your goal?

 

If you were to keep going and doing the same thing right now with nothing changing in a year, would you be okay with that?

 

The thought of being in the same place next year is very scary for a high achiever.  You want to learn, grow, and improve your life.  This is why goals are so important to you.

 

You know why goals are important but of all the goals out there, why did you set this specific goal?

 

A goal with a low level of reasoning behind it is rarely achieved.  There has to be a meaning behind your goal.  It’s not enough to simply set a goal to lose weight or save money.  You need to have a strong why behind achieving your goal.

 

When you start working on a goal without a strong reason why, we often stop part way through to ask why am I even doing this in the first...

How To Stay Motivated Toward Reaching Your Goal

Jul 07, 2018

A question I am frequently asked is how do I stay motivated toward reaching my goal?

 

Here are the top 10 ways to stay motivated toward reaching your goal!

 

1. Have Goal Clarity

In order to stay motivated toward reaching your goal you must first have goal clarity to know exactly what is you want to accomplish.

 

Write down your goal where you can see it daily.  Use the home screen of your phone as a daily reminder of what you need to be focusing on.

 

Add measure to your goal, as in, an amount and complete date.  For example, lose 5 pounds in two weeks or graduate with my masters degree by June of next year.

 

Anyone will be able to tell when you’ve achieved your goal based on these parameters.
