Take your laptop or grab a paper and start planning because we’ve rounded up the best tips for you to start your week right!
Make A Note Guys:
1. The Checklist Manifesto
Start your day with a checklist. As small as it is, it can help you organize your thoughts with a clear focus on what you have to do with properly managing time. Start using the checklist to help keep you motivated to achieve success.
2. Don’t Skip Breakfast
Breakfast is a very important meal. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day. Stop making excuses for the shortage of time or resources. Kick-start your day with a healthy breakfast. Always remember there’s absolutely nothing you can do to make up for the mistake of not eating breakfast. Rise, Eat and then Shine.
3. Take The Stairs
We all have seen the ‘walk and talk’ advertisements and it’s time we implement it in our daily lives. Taking the stairs is a great way to get a little work out in each day. If your office building has an elevator or lifts, then try substituting it with stairs. Even if you just walk a few floors and take the elevator the rest of the way, you will gain a great deal of benefit.
4. Drink Plenty of Water
how much water is enough? The answer is that you should ideally drink 8 glasses of water in a day as water is the most important element that your body needs to function properly, remain healthy and fight off diseases.
5. Maintain A Balanced Diet
Incorporating healthy and balance food into your daily diet can help you stay active, healthy with being more productive throughout the week. Consuming fruits and green leafy vegetables can flush out fat and toxins, reducing fat deposits stored in the body, reducing bad cholesterol levels, and increasing immunity.
6. Create A Kickass Workout Playlist
One of the best sources of motivation is music. Create a playlist of motivational songs to keep you going through your workouts. Set after set, rep after rep let the music guide you. All that Music blaring through your headphones is bound to keep you going longer and harder towards your goal. Whether you’re running that extra mile or doing that extra rep, drown yourself in the music and let it pump you up!
7. Keep Trying New Things
It is obvious if you do a thing regularly you’ll eventually get bored of it and this same concept applies to your fitness routine as well. To spice up your fitness routine keep trying different workouts/activities. If you do the exact same workout forever, your body's going to get bored. Your body gets accustomed to the same old routine, that’s why executing well-written plans help you to go farther as weight lifting programs call for higher reps and more weight, boxing classes put together even trickier combinations.
8. Plan When To Cheat
A cheat day in a week is ok. You can allow your body to give in to the temptation once in a week. Cheat meals don't have to spell diet disaster. In fact, a well-structured cheat meal can help you surmount weight-loss plateaus! Remember to Cheat smart!
Starting your week without reviewing your calendar is like driving your car with a blindfold, you are surely going to hit on something. Understand where you are heading before the week starts. Review your calendar in advance and don’t wait until the end of the week to evaluate yourself. Set a daily or weekly personal reflection and be honest with yourself. Just plan it out to start your week!
