I was out in Las Vegas this weekend for a business conference, so I am slowly recovering from the time change this morning…
One of the speakers at the conference, did a little speech on the BIGGEST things he learned in 2015 that improved his life.
It was eye-opening, and worth the entire price of the event.
Anyways, since people love to hear my personal insights and what I’m doing, I’m gonna share 2 of the BIGGEST things I learned in 2015 that are helping me to live a better life.
#1 – My morning routine has made me less stressed, more focused and less anxious
I have a 1-hour morning routine that I do every morning. Here it is…
– Stretch/yoga for 10 minutes
– Plan out my day
– Write in a journal for 5 minutes (mostly I write about things Im grateful for)
– Read for 10 minutes. I usually read the Bible, or some type of personal development book.
– Eat breakfast. I always have protein + fat for breakfast. Also a glass of Patriot Power Greens and any supplements I’m taking.
That’s the gist of it.
On days when I DON’T do this routine, I notice it. I have less focus. I’ll get stressed out, and just not have a very good day.
I’m usually up around 6:30, so this routine doesn’t cut into my day at all. It’s a natural part of my morning now.
#2 – Investing in my health is the best investment I can make
I was going over some expenses with my accountant at the end of December, and was quite stunned by the amount of money I wasted on things I don’t even care about.
Now I’m a minimalist when it comes to most things…
But even I still have problems spending money on things that don’t really matter.
So I’m pushing myself to prioritize those things…
Early last year, I got a few lab tests done from my doctor that I had to pay out of pocket for.
I cringed a little bit at the price of these tests, and really wondered if it was worth it.
But then I thought about it…
I would easily spend that much money on a new couch, or on a vacation for Karen and I and not even think twice about it.
Yet, for some reason when it came to my health, I had some resistance to doing it.
After realizing that, I’ve made it a priority to invest in my health. I know that if I want to still be moving around in 30 years, then I need to make this a priority.
And “investing” in your health doesn’t have to be money.
It can also be time.
Time is your most valuable asset.
That 30 minutes you waisted watching a TV show that you don’t really care about could have been spent walking around the neighborhood or cooking a healthy meal.
My friend Tim Ferriss has a saying that “lack of time usually means lack of priotities”.
And he’s 100% right.
Finding a way to invest more of your time and more of your money into your health is a no-brainer if you want to feel better and live longer.
Alrighty, that’s it for today…
Let’s have a good week.
