During Lockdown I have had plenty of time to reflect, refocus and reset.  Let us press the reset button and reprogram our mindsets.

Research conducted April 2020 suggested,

Poor sleep and increased risk of exhaustion are also on the rise with the majority of the 500 respondents (64%) reporting a lack of sleep due to worries with a similar increase in symptoms of fatigue. Some 48% also admitted to working long and irregular hours.

Mental health was also found to be suffering, with half saying they were unhappy with their current work-life balance. A third admitted to frequently feeling isolated, while a fifth are worried about job security.

Our mindset matters, we need to feed our minds with the correct fuel.

A positive mindset means that you have a positive expectation that things will turn out well and that you will succeed. It gives you more courage to try and persist to make changes than if you have a negative mindset. Making positive changes in the way we think is necessary for our health and well-being. It also makes us more productive and focused.

Benefits of a positive mindset

  • Increased life span.
  • Lower rates of depression.
  • Lower levels of distress.
  • Greater resistance to the common cold.
  • Better psychological and physical well-being.

What we feed our minds, that becomes our mindset

In these uncertain times we may find ourselves wondering what is going on.
Schools are shut.

Working from home.

More free time.

Restrictions on going out.

You made plans, but now they have been put on hold.

Not sure what to make of it all.

How do you remain positive when there seems to be chaos all around?
Here are a few things that I have been doing to stay focused, I SMILE.

S– Start a gratitude journal or continue writing in your journal.
Write down each day, two things you are grateful for. This will shift your focus and allows you to see that there is always something to be grateful for. You can do this exercise with your children. Members of your family. Call a friend and share your gratitude.

M– Mediate on positive affirmations.

Recite a positive quote in the morning. Think about what it means to you at this time. Share your quote with someone. This is a great exercise because it can transform the way you think and view things

I– Inject some fun into your day.

Dance to some music like no one is watching. Reconnect with old friends. Sing in the shower. Combat boredom and add some fun into your day.

L– Lend a helping hand.

Think about who you can reach out to. This will help you to focus your mind on other things. There are people that need your support. Be that person that extends a lending hand.
I am offering FREE one-hour coaching sessions for individuals who need to refocus and take action. Schedule your call with me today.

E– Enjoy the down time.

We may never get this time again. What is that thing, or in my case the things that you have not got around to do? Don’t overexert yourself. Take one day at a time.

Here are a list of some of the things that I am doing:

  • Decluttering the house, one space at a time.
  • Enrolled onto some free courses.
  • Working on new offers for my business
  • Spending more quality time with family

Reconnect with the things that you have been too busy for.

Remain positive and don’t forget to SMILE.

Share this with someone who you feel may benefit from hearing these tips.

What strategies are you using to remain positive in these uncertain times?

It is approaching the end of 2018 already.

At this time of year, I like to reflect.

Self-reflecting helps you to look at what you have carried out so far.

Thought provoking questioning goes round and round in my head.

These are some of the questions I have asked myself over the last few weeks.

Image result for question mark

What have I accomplished?

What have I not accomplished?

How can I do things differently to produce different results?

What else do I want to work on?

How will I go about doing that?

How will I navigate the challenges?

Personal development helps you to make improvements in your life.

Creating an action plan is all part of the personal development process.

Remember personal development is a lifelong process.

Four benefits to personal development.

  1. You will be able to make crystal clear goals
  2. You will be motivated
  3. You will have a better work-life balance
  4. It will improve your prospects

What areas do you want to work on?

Do you have a personal development plan?

Why not work on it TODAY!
