What is the first thing you do when you get up?
Check emails / social media?
Make breakfast for someone else?
Get other people up and ready?
Running this, serving everyone else whether it’s your family, your customers or boss/colleagues, YOU need to be the first person you look after.
Start your day with power.
Serve yourself first.
Whatever that is to make sure that you are the priority in your own life.
Workout, meditate, take time for yourself before you serve anyone else.
Think about the safety instructions when you are on a flight, make sure your own mask is fitted before helping anyone else.
Burning yourself out for everyone else is not productive.
It’s not productive for you, your family, your work, your friends or your future.
It is time to make you a priority.
You might need to get up a bit earlier in the morning to get it done.
You can do a 10 minute meditation.
You can do 10-20 minutes of Pilates or yoga.
You can go out for a walk or run to give you some time, clear your head and get some exercise in.
Taking this time for yourself gives you a better start to the day, it gives you power, it gives you more headspace and energy to deal with the day ahead.
Your challenge this week.
Take time for yourself, get up a bit earlier and do something JUST FOR YOU.
Let me know how it goes.
I am working down in Birmingham this week at Leisure Industry Week.
I will be getting up earlier to take my time for myself.
It’s going to be a busy few days working with Team ICG which I am really looking forward to.
This week, make it about you.
