How to win the day - the let's reach success podcast - lidiya k

This is episode 48 of the Let’s Reach Success podcast and today I’ll talk about what it takes to win the day, every day.

We all live different lifestyles, of course, our responsibilities vary, and we aim at different things, too. But the main elements of success and progress, in any field, are the same for everyone.

To achieve something, you need to be focused on it every single day, to take action in the right direction, to structure your whole day around this goal.

Also, you need to take care of your health, to have time for yourself so that you don’t get stressed out, and to do everything in the most effective and productive way possible to make sure you’re making the most of your time.

That’s not an easy thing to do. But if you organize your day in such a way that you can get a lot done in the first part, and then have time for anything else, plus to add the right rituals and use techniques to maximize your efficiency, you can become successful and win the day.

Just imagine waking up with determination not just tomorrow, or a few days in the month, but every day, and doing your best, chasing your dreams, and living life to the fullest at the same time.

Then, you’ll go to bed with a smile on your face, knowing it’s been a productive day, and will look forward to the next one.

I believe anyone can live this way.

So, I’ll now share with you how my usual day goes, and what elements you need to include in your everyday life if you want to accomplish the goals you’ve set.

9 Ways to Handle Change in Your Life [Infographic] 3

9 Ways to Handle Change in Your Life [Infographic]

When a big change happens in your life, it doesn’t have to be a negative change to have a huge impact on you.

Change causes uncertainty and our brains and bodies react to uncertainty by trying to protect us with the release of fight or flight chemicals and hormones.

The downside to this is that living with these for an extended time results in elevated heart rate and affects your digestion, immune systems and blood flow.

But there are ways you can regain control over your life even in the midst of big changes.

The first is to take a step back and reflect on what’s actually happening and what your involvement is, which will help you to understand and find perspective on the situation. Hopefully, this will enable you to find the opportunities that every change in your life brings, rather than obsessing over any short-term negative impacts.

It may also help you to allow yourself a transition period where you adjust to the changes. But with a firm deadline by which you expect to have moved on and settled into the new routine. Even if it doesn’t quite work out that way, it will still push you towards visualizing the end of the uncertainty, which will prepare you to make it happen sooner rather than later.

On a more basic level, you need to remember to look after yourself during this time of change and the related stresses.

It can be too easy to fall into bad habits like neglecting your own simple needs, like a good night’s sleep and staying active and eating right when you are going through something like this. Having a day in your pajamas eating ice cream out of the tub is fine. But your body needs sleep, exercise and nutrition to keep you healthy.

Routine can be a comfort when it feels like everything in your life is changing.

So try and stick to some simple ones like walking your dog every morning or going to a regular gym class to give your life some stability and consistency.

You also need the help and support of those around you. And having a strong support network is crucial when it comes to coping with big changes in your life. This means family and friends, but you could also seek out people going through similar experiences by looking online. There may well be communities who you can talk to and get helpful tips from.

Most importantly of all, you need to be aware of when you need more than just the love and support of other people to help you cope with stress and uncertainty. If you start to feel like your mental health is really suffering, or you have been feeling the symptoms of stress for more than a couple of months, you need to go and talk to a health professional to get the help you need to bounce back.
