The Best Tip You Will Get Tonight to Make Tomorrow Night Fabulous
You made it through another work day, all you want to do is relax and empty your mind. But you can’t. You keep thinking about all of the things you need to get done tomorrow, this week, by a particular deadline. Then you ask yourself if you did everything you needed to finish today. Did you forget something?
Meanwhile, as you are going over your list of all you need to do tomorrow and trying to give yourself a pep talk to tackle it, you are also thinking of what you could do right now to make the evening complete, since the day has been so stressful.
If you have problems with over-filling your head exactly when you should be emptying it, then I have a tip for you and then a few other suggestions.
One of the most common habits of successful people is to complete their plans for the next day at the end of their work hour. This could be hard for entrepreneurs, since they rarely work 9 to 5, but there is something that triggers the end of the day, whether it is when you stop to eat, to workout, or your close your laptop.
The point is that not at the end of the night, not at the start of the day, but at the close of your work day when you’ve spent hours upon hours engrossed in your responsibilities is when you should review your plan for the next day. It is then that you re-plan, adjust, add, and clear items that must be addressed tomorrow, this week, and by a particular deadline.
You can review not only your professional schedule and responsibilities, but your personal one as well.
Then you are done. You are prepared. You are ready. Your mind need not go through things step by step throughout the rest of your evening in an attempt to discover what you may have missed, forgotten, or failed to notice. Your mind is free to be relaxed, creative, find joy in small things, and reboot.
This one habit will do wonders for your stress level. It will help you value your time and do more with it. You will, day after day, find that the habit is helping you become more productive and therefore more successful in your pursuits.
Another tip for helping you free your mind from burdens is to exercise. The physical movements will get your body working the way it is supposed to work. It will destress you, clear your mind, make you feel happier and empowered. Over time it will make you feel good in general because your body works and feels better when you exercise.
A study recently revealed that you can get the benefit of exercise in a very brief minute. That’s right, you can get up, move intensely with the determination to boost your body’s fitness and it won’t take the amount of time you spend watching your favorite sitcom. Although, if you set a goal that would equal that same amount of time, it would give you tremendous benefits.
So, let go of your thoughts. Free your mind the best you can, because tomorrow you will start a new habit. Make notes throughout your day and put down details in your schedule and to-do list. By the end of your work day you will be ready to review your schedule and adjust it as needed. Then you are free to live for things of your heart and not for the things of your work. It will bring you balance.
Have a great day tomorrow. Make it happen.
