Did you decide at the start of the year that 2017 will be the year you are more focused, happier and healthier? To help you get closer to making those goals a reality, life coach and founder of Six Weeks to Sexy, Blake Worrall-Thompson shared with us his life hacks to boost your mood and wellbeing, stay focused and achieve daily balance.
Wherever you can, delegate and divide and conquer. Use your time to do what you do best and focus on your health instead of housework. For example, Airtasker.com is a service where you can offload your errands and pay others to help with menial tasks, from weeding to collecting parcels.
Every evening, sit down and review your day. Write down what did and didn’t work for you, and what you liked and disliked.
Divide your life into key areas: body (nutrition and exercise), balance (relationships) and being (meditation, personal development). Start the week with a checklist to keep these aspects at the front of your mind.
Start small. People want quick results, but doing one thing a day will help immensely. If you want to lose 20kg, start by getting your breakfast right. If you want to run a marathon, start by running three times a week. Hit your single goals every day.
Have a group of people you can check in with to keep focused and get you closer to achieving your ultimate healthy, balanced life.
