Fixing Problems In Your Life
“Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum” I Smell a Problem!
Lately I have been on this “finding myself” mission.
It all started with me feeling unsatisfied with my current career path.
You can read more about that here:
No matter how hard I tried to be a, “good” employee, I was miserable and started to lose my lust for more.
It showed in my work; also, my personal life.
“Everything is connected. Being stressed in one aspect of your life can affect all. Find the root of the problem and destroy it!” – jaycooltips
Then I made the bold decision to change my hours at work from full time to casual status.
I was nervous and afraid at first because I didn’t know how I was going to create income for myself.
But now, it has been almost 2 months since that decision, and I am completely happy.
I have more time to focus on the things I love and I get a lot more work done.
I am definitely not saying,
“Hey, you, quit your job now!”
But at some point, you need to figure out what it is that you want out of life, and go for it.
Fixing Problems in Your Life!
The moment I stopped focusing so much on money, and simplified some things in my life, it made a significant difference in my mood.
· I made my grocery bill smaller by only buying the things that I needed for the week.
· My utility bill has been reduced because I only use my lights when desperately needed.
· I started bulk cooking my meals so I only turn my stove on twice a week,
· and I walk to places more instead of drive.
Not only are you reducing your carbon foot print and getting a good workout in, you also save on gas money!
Even when it comes to fitness, I went months without working out because of stress, but then found myself complaining about the weight that I had gained.
I need change in my life!
I started to grow tired of my excuses for the things that I was unhappy about in my life.
Especially, because I was not trying everything that I could to change them.
It was either, “oh, I’m not going to start working out on a Wednesday, it’s the middle of the week. I’ll start on Monday.”
Then Monday would come, and because I messed up so much over the weekend, I would then convince myself that I will start working out the following week.
No, you don’t.
Stop lying to yourself and get moving; no matter what day it is or what you ate the following day.
Even if it is a 4-minute Tabata workout or 5-10 minute full body circuit.
Not sure what a Tabata work out is?
Yes, 4-minutes! Who doesn’t have 4 minutes?
Remember, EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.
Being more active and productive, may help relieve some stress in other areas of your life!
1 trick that I use is:
I start with 5-minute Tabata/circuit workouts 4 days a week.
Then the next week I increase them to 10-minutes, then the 3rd week 15-minutes, and so on.
By that 4th or 5th week, your body is prepped and ready to start hitting the gym again and incorporating some other workout routines into the mix.
Don’t over think things and just get it done the best way you can.
