Focussing on my health and wellness is my second nature now. Every activity I undertake is in some way or the other linked to my health goals. Here are some things that help me:
The downside of technology
One of the key aspects that can disrupt a person’s healthy routine is constant exposure to messages and communications that create a sense of false urgency. My phones notifications are usually off and I only check my phone when I am expecting an important communication.
At home my phone is on silent, when I sleep it is kept in another room. Basically, I control my phone and don’t let my phone control me. I usually ignore unnecessary social media posts. While these steps seem simple, they can save us a huge deal of trouble and time.
All this effort leads to the making of a perfect day. For me the best day is when I have no plans and no agenda. The ideal day is one where I control what I am doing.
Job satisfaction and deriving satisfaction out of your actions is of paramount importance. Post selling my last company Indiagames to Disney, I had to overnight make a transition from a start-up to a being corporate executive. For someone who had never worked for anyone as an employee in my life, I was suddenly part of a corporate set-up making plans, reports and following process. This may be super normal for everyone, but I am used to working in CHAOS. I love chaos, ‘Organised Chaos’. So when I was put in a structured environment, I felt burned out.
My ‘good’ habits
You are a sum of all your habits, over a period of several years and I have incorporated several ‘good’ habits in my life:
These changes I have adopted have enriched my life and my individuality. When you let your mind, body and soul focus on the things which are important to you, your ability to perform increases 100x. You start seeing connections and are able to connect the dots. I believe my habits have helped me Level Up in the game of life.
