Maybe you are generally an active person, maybe not. But during this quarantine period, it is more crucial than ever to remain active. Not just for your physical well being, but more focused on the mental state of your mind. Being confined to one area, or a small space can drive people insane, so you must have a movement schedule built into your day.
Stay active throughout the day, not just once, but make a point of it to keep moving.
3 times a day could be a lifesaver for you at this stage. Go for a walk, run, stretch, do yoga, or even a full-body workout. You can Google all of these videos and see them on YouTube. You honestly do not have any excuse not to exercise or be physically active. Needless to say, if you have any children confined to your space at this stage as well, everyone must do active movement during the day. This is one way to release some energy in those little bodies.
As an entrepreneur, it is very important to keep a healthy mindset during a time of crisis or worry. When you exercise, your body releases your happy hormones and you can achieve more during your day. You become more creative and you think more clearly. It also has been shown that you think faster and solves problems better if you keep a healthy exercise routine. Yes, if you are a couch potato, you will argue this with me, but I am speaking to those people who want to succeed in life.
There are many different types of people in the world and right now, you need to be the best version of yourself, no matter what. Do not allow the panic of the world to consume you. Do not let others fill your mind with more worry and uncertainty and learn to speak positivity into your life and the world around you.
I want you to use this time to educate yourself, grow and become a better person. Learn to use this time to clean house, and not just your actual house, but your business, sort out areas that have been giving you problems, check systems and processes in your business and do staff training. Even via video, you can educate your staff and your customers on products and more.
Do not see this quarantine phase as a shut down on your life. This is to protect us and help solve the problem. So use it to the best of your ability.
You can only have a healthy mindset when you keep yourself physically active. Wake up with a new outlook on life. Go for a walk, use it as a time to reflect of everything you are grateful for and YES, you can even walk around in your house. Listen to a podcast from a mentor or someone you look up to in your industry and get your mindset right for the day ahead.
Every step counts, so no matter how big or small.
Keep moving forward and keep looking for new ideas to improve on who you are as a person.
Remember, millions of people are going through what we are experiencing now, so maybe do something that could help others also get through their day.
Stay safe and remember, the more you move the better your thinking will be.
