Make Your Bedroom Your Sanctuary
Once you become aware of proper order of your priorities, it will be a matter of working on one piece at a time, with simple strategies that I will mention below. Right now let me remind you quickly about it:
- Family and friends
- Your writing business
Now we have BOB saying, “How the heck am I going to get my priorities in order when the only thing I know is to write to make a living and dedicate my time doing that as my number one priority to support myself and the family?”
The big question is: How can we start making the shift and putting things in the right order?
First, consider the following rules:
- Must be easy to implement
The rules above must be applicable to your lifestyle, family, writing deadline, social life, and something that you love to do for fun not related to work.
This time I will mention SLEEP as one of the things that you can start working on for the next 30 days. Bob might be asking himself “how am I going to change my sleep when I have all these things I need to get done, plus family and work?” I totally understand that, I have been there myself; I was once married and also have three kids including running my own business, Dee Health n’ Fitness.
In this issue I will share with you some strategies that can help you improve your sleep which will lead to more energy, better digestion, recovery time and motivation to keep active and, exercise.
Here are some ideas, choose one and work on that for the next 30 days, master that one habit and continue to the next one.
CREATE A BEDTIME ROUTINE
- Consider putting your cell phone away two hours before your bedtime
- Enjoy chamomile tea to relax your body and nurture your gut
- Try journaling about your successes and gratitude daily to end your day in a positive state of mind
- Read a book. It is recommended a fiction book before bed instead of education. The reason is because you want to keep your brain away from thinking about work all the time
- Keep your phone away from you bedroom and get an old school alarm clock
Never watch the news before going to bed.
One key thing about what I am sharing with you today is:
Make your bedroom your sanctuary of love and passion instead of a place of working on your phone and distraction.
