If we tried to do all the things that the media, bloggers and even friends and family suggest we do to live a healthy life, it would be a full-time job and even then we wouldn’t keep up.

Quite often the mere thought of the number of things that this entails is truly overwhelming – with the end result being no action and you not doing a single one of them of any given day.

There is nothing more frustrating than getting to the end of that day and wishing that you had been able to do all the stuff you really wanted to. It’s not nice knowing that we have not managed to make the most of every day.

So how can you make the most of every day?

Be as fresh as a daisy!

After breathing, sleep is our most fundamental need.  It is also the first thing we are willing to give up in an effort to get more done. The fact is that even small amounts of sleep deprivation makes us vastly less efficient.

If you are not currently sleeping at least 7 hours each night, look at what you need to do to make that a reality, and then start pushing your bedtime earlier by 15 minutes until it becomes natural.

Make getting 7-8 hours sleep your highest priority and your desire to make the most of each day skyrockets.

Be like a postage stamp – stick to one thing!

In our often time poor world, it is so easy to get caught up in trying to do 20 things at the same time, aka multi-tasking. Hordes of us believe that this is a prized skill and do the proverbial octopus dance every day.  Clinical research shows that the reality of multi-tasking is quite different.

We are not wired to juggle several tasks at a time because we just can’t concentrate and focus on any of them, resulting in lacklustre performance and complete lack of effectiveness while at work or home. Focus on one thing at a time and you will be amazed at how quickly and effectively you can complete a task or job and actually get them done.

 

Weave movement ‘moments’ into your day

Motivation comes and goes just like the tide – it is something that we need to practice, cultivate and develop every day. Exercising regularly releases those lovely endorphins, which enhance our motivation with other healthy habits like eating well.

As a bonus, research shows that we are more productive in the two hours after exercise with a 24-hour improvement. The best type of exercise is the one that you will actually do.

Lets make it easy though.  What about 5-minute bites like: skipping, trampoline, stairs, legs up the wall or a walk outside the office for lunch?

 

Write out your top three for the day

One of my clever friends, also CEO of a business, once gave me some very valuable advice; “Before you finish up for the day, write your to do list for tomorrow”.

If you start your day without a list in front of you, walk out of the room and don’t come back until you have one.

What are your top three for the day? Organise this and you will stand a much better chance of making the most of every day!
