I read an article the other day that seemed to chime with my thinking about looking after yourself by developing rituals (and routines).
“Every day I need physical energy, mental clarity, and emotional balance to tackle everything that comes my way. Self-care is the secret to performing at the highest level.”
Mike Del Ponte
You can read the whole (short) article here, or simply read the headlines below. It’s your choice. If you choose the shortcut, you could use the time saved to begin implementing one of the rituals – or post a comment suggesting alternative rituals.
6 Simple Rituals To Reach Your Potential Every Day:
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up. Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning.
2. Define your top 3. What’s your “Top 3” today?
3. The 50/10 Rule. Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between.
4. Move and sweat daily. Regular movement keeps us healthy and alert.
5. Express gratitude.
6. Reflect daily.
