How to get your mind right for maximum productivity.
Having worked as a Neurosurgical ICU nurse, I have learned that your brain is the most important organ in your body and the key to your success. Today I am going to share with you how you can use your brain as an asset in your life and business.
Your brain is your control hub and everything you do stems from thoughts you have, so its super important to cultivate your mindset, fuel your brain for success and protect it. By doing all of these things you will be more productive in your work and life as well as feel happier.
Here are some action steps that can help you to cultivate a mindset for productivity:
This includes affirmations around how you want your time to be. One that I like is “I have plenty of time to do all of the things I want to do in my life and business”
Doing daily meditation is scientifically proven to help you increase your productivity over time. A great place to start is with 10 minute meditations there is a great podcast called the Daily Meditation Podcast which gives you 10 minute meditations and teaches tons of different meditation techniques that you can use throughout your day.
Exercise decreases stress, improves mental clarity by improving the blood flow to the brain, helps to release tension and helps you to focus when you need to. Its a no brainer (no pun intended) that exercise should be a daily part of your mindset practice.
Fuel your body for performance
Have you ever had a big plate of pasta for lunch and by 3 PM you are majorly crashing unable to concentrate and needing that afternoon pick-me-up? That is exactly why as business owners we need to fuel our bodies for maximum performace. You wouldn’t put pepsi in your cars fuel tank and expect for it to run well. Same thing goes with what we put in our bodies. Choose minimally processed foods (the fewer ingredients the better and every single one should be pronounceable) to help your brain function at its best. What does that mean for you? Being a more productive, more focused and less stressed business owner. Ultimately leading you to sell more and make more money.
Protect Your Mindset
Do everything you can to stay positive and avoid negativity. This could be in the form of negative people, negative input (like TV shows and the news) and negative thoughts. Think of your mind as your sacred space.
If you notice what your favorite super successful business owner is doing you will find that they do all or most of these practices.
