Wanting to get more done in the day is what many of us are looking to do, but doing it the right way is what we are here to cover. Keeping your health in check and on track is what makes our dreams happen! Here are 10 ways health fuels your hustle.
Anyone who is financially successful knows that exercise is detrimental to their hustle. Think about anyone you admire. They most likely add exercise into their daily routine. Some of them, they do it because that’s their job, but others add it to achieve more out of life.
When you start exercising you are creating new neurons in your brain that help you stay focused and sharp at any task at hand. Eating healthy is also a huge contributor to your hustle. What you eat affects how you will feel for the rest of the day. If you are drinking loads of coffee and eating sugar you may have a spike during that point of the day but you will crash harder later on. Take the time to think about what you are putting into your body before you do so.
2. Stress Levels
Life is stressful in general, but it doesn’t get any better if your health isn’t where it needs to be. If you want to work hard and start earning a living that is worth your expectations, it’s time to stop eating the candy. Your stress will increase based on what you indulge in. Your gut is linked to the brain and without the proper foods, how do you expect the brain to work the way you want it to! Eating healthier and exercising will also improve any symptoms of anxiety and or depression also, so think wisely the next time you are about to grab that donut!
Investing in your health will even increase your intelligence. Now, who doesn’t want that! When you exercise, you are increasing the blood flow and oxygen levels to the brain. By having more oxygen and blood flow, means your brain is more receptive to learning new things. The great thing about learning new things constantly is that nowadays, knowledge is the new money you need to have to become successful. The more you know, the more you will be better off in the future!
4. Positive Mindset
Remember the memories you have where you were so happy and positive during the day? How did that day go? I’m guessing it went actually extremely successful. Now think about if you could be like that more often. You would get more tasks done during the day, you could meet more people, perhaps meet the right people, learn more, etc.
Looking out for your health means that your viewpoint on who you and who you want to become increases in a positive way and you learn to take the time to be nice to yourself. Eating the correct foods and exercising helps maintain that positive mindset and any successful person could tell that health is by far one of their most valuable key performance indicators to a successful life.
5. Sleeping is Essential
Although exercise and eating right is essential to your health, you can’t assume that is the only thing you need. Sleeping is just as important to maintain that hustle. When you sleep you are regaining the energy that you used up throughout the day. Your mind needs to rest to connect the things you learned from the previous day. If you don’t take the time to sleep, you will become more stressed and exhausted by everyday tasks. Things that should be easy, will become harder to do. Your goals will be achieved, but with twice the time attached to it if you don’t start pushing yourself to become more healthy.
6. Eat Breakfast
Of course, every meal is important but there is a reason why breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It fuels everything. When you wake up, your body hasn’t eaten for hours, and for it to fully start working properly, it needs breakfast to get it started. You do not need a buffet in the morning to feel good and get things done, but it does help to eat a couple of items in the morning to help the brain work the most efficiently. A great breakfast is a couple of eggs and some avocado toast. Before you know it, your energy will be at an all-time high!
Drinking water is probably something every one of us has heard growing up way more than we should have. The importance of water is that our bodies are made up of around 60% water and when you deprive yourself of water you will start to feel it in your productivity. Especially if you are a coffee drinker. If you drink coffee on a regular, you need to drink more water in fact because coffee dehydrates you. It may be confusing since coffee does give you energy for the time being but by the end of the day, coffee can really make you crash harder and even more if you don’t drink enough water.
Water helps flush out all the toxins that build up in our bodies that prevents us from working our hardest. When you are hydrated you can physically feel the benefits all around. Your brain will work more efficiently, and you will be able to finish tasks a lot faster since your brain will be able to think faster from all the hydration it’s retaining.
By eating healthier and exercising more frequently you are building self-discipline. Self-discipline will in return build your self-confidence as well. When you feel good about yourself, you are more likely to want to go achieve goals you normally wouldn’t want to go achieve if you didn’t feel as confident.
For instance, you might go up to a person asking them to be your mentor so that you can learn and gain knowledge from how they achieved success. You may not do this if you don’t feel that great about yourself. Achieving more is what you are trying to accomplish and taking care of yourself daily can help you start to understand that self-care means you have and are creating self-respect. When you have respect yourself more you want to make sure that everything in your power will only improve your life standards rather than damage it.
If there is one thing that can be extremely hard to keep going, it’s motivation. Getting out of bed can be one of the last things you want to do if you don’t have the motivation for the day to do so. Checking in on your health, helps you stay more motivated because you are creating healthy habits that you are gaining benefits from. When you start to notice these benefits, it starts to spread in all areas of your life, leaving you wondering what else could you achieve with all the energy and excitement you have.
10. Saving Money
Many people think that being healthy costs more, but it actually costs less. If you are eating bad every day, you are more likely spending more money on sugar and caffeine to help you stay satisfied during the day, and in the long run, really ruining your health and well-being on the inside. By not taking care of yourself you will start to gain problems internally which means more money will be spent trying to fix the problems that are happening. No one likes that bill to show up in the mail! Take the time to be kind to your body, and your body will thank you in the future.
