We all know alcohol is used for socializing and caffeine is used to keep us awake and alert.  However, there are individuals who do consume an excessive amount and it can lead to health issues.

6.  Take a Break From Social Media and Gadgets

Life can be filled with distractions and obstacles.  With the increase of technical gadgets, games, social media sites, etc… Each one of these interruptions conspire to draw our attention away from what we need to concentrate on.

In fact, our daily social media frenzy routine  is causing us to miss out, without even realizing it.  Our focus is shifted, we start to procrastinate, even though we know the task is important to us. 

Even though social media is a great tool to stay connected with family and friends, don’t make it a full-time job. It’s about taking back your life, relaxing, and having gratitude. 

7.  Keep Your Home an Workspace Organized

Removing the physical clutter around your home and workspace will help you stay focused and bring clarity to your surroundings.    When your space is cluttered your mind becomes cluttered.  

This clutter overwhelms your mind from the extra stimuli and forces the brain to keep focused on the mess around you.  It also signals the brain… that there is always something else needing your attention.  When you begin to de-clutter your space, the mind will follow and you will feel a sense of relief!

8.  Make a Daily “To Do” List 

The most powerful thing you can do to take back your life and manage your time is to create a “To Do” list. You should create this list every day and let it serve as a blueprint for the day.  I truly would be lost without my list. It keeps me on track knowing what I need to accomplish throughout the day. 

A typical “To Do” planner is all you need to stay organized.  Before you begin your day, jot down your tasks, prioritize each item and if you don’t get everything completed that day  – it’s OKAY!!   Turn the page and write it down on tomorrow’s To Do list!  It will all get done in due time.

9.  Exercise To Increase Your Energy Level

Regular exercise is an important part of maintaining a healthy mind and body. It can make you feel energized and motivated helping to boost your confidence and mental strength.  An exercise program doesn’t need to be super complicated to provide meaningful benefits. Even a 30 minute walk, three times a week can significantly help combat depression and improve one’s self-worth.

10.  Learn To Say “NO”

Learning to say “NO” to things or people who don’t resonate with you can be very empowering.   Taking command of your life means getting honest with yourself about who you hang out with and what activities you participate in.  Engage in those activities and friends who serve your best interests and elevate you as a person.

Remember, you do not have to justify to anyone why you are saying “NO”.  You can respond graciously, “Thank you for asking, maybe next time” or “Let me look at my schedule and I will get back to you”.  Once you start using this technique, it gets easier each time.

You cannot expect to reach your peak unless you are willing to put the time and effort into completing any task.  Taking back your life is important not only emotionally but physically.  Remember to visualize your plan and to think positive thoughts… but if there is no action behind your plan, it will always remain a possibility.  I believe in YOU, but I want YOU to believe in yourself!!

Love and Hugs, XO
