Do One Thing: Find Your Hidden Energy

This month I’m challenging you to do one thing every day. It doesn’t seem like much if you look at it on a daily basis, but a continued focus on doing one thing will lead to amazing results.

Make Reasonable Goals. I love lists and think they make life easier, but I’ve also seen how creating endless to do lists can start to seem overwhelming.  Keep your tasks reasonable – about 1 task per hour – and you’ll see how much better you feel.  If you can’t get it all done today, don’t sweat it.  You’ve got more time tomorrow and the next day and the next day.  Only do what you can manage today.

Eat right, especially in the morning. My God, I love donuts. One day a few years ago, I ate 5 donuts one morning (yes, I know how that sounds too – yikes).  I was on a sugar high for hours.  And then I came crashing down.  It was so bad, I had to leave work just to take a nap.  If you are going to have a treat, eat a reasonable amount (learn from my mistakes) and don’t choose it first thing in the morning.  You’ll set yourself up for success by starting each day with the right blend of good energy food.

Letting your lazy days take over your life.  I’ve been pretty stressed out.  The weather has been terrible, I’ve had too much to do and I hadn’t been able to work out regularly. So, I’d spend my days watching TV in bed.  I did this every night for two months.  It wasn’t good or healthy.  I’d let my lazy days take over my life!  Relaxation is important and necessary.  You need to re-charge.  But if you get in a situation like me, think about what you’re really doing and make changes to deal with the real issue.  Luckily, I had a TV intervention, the weather is beautiful and I’m back to my running routine.

Your hidden energy isn’t in a magic potion; it’s being honest with yourself and what you can accomplish.  When you are kinder and more reasonable with yourself, you’ll find you had the energy you needed all along.
