In order to fully enjoy the outstanding feeling of success, you must first have good health. And success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
The daily grind can sometimes be too exhausting and it’s totally understandable if you want changes in your life. There’s nothing wrong with wanting an extraordinary lifestyle. In fact, you can go further in life with that.
But if you’re going to do it, it should include a healthy balance of physical, mental, and emotional self-care routines. Here are 9 ways to create your extraordinary healthy lifestyle:
Spend more time outdoors for mental clarity
If you don’t enjoy going out too much because even the thought of it already makes you feel exhausted (picking your clothes and doing your hair or makeup), that’s totally fine, but only for a while.
Depriving yourself from socialization and the outside world can cause burnout. So travel more not just because you want to, but because your mind and body have to. Just think of it as an escape for mental clarity and a reward for your hard work.
What consumes your mind controls your life, because your thoughts are the seeds of your actions and habits. Therefore, you must practice daily mindfulness and positivity to maintain a quiet mind and healthy body.
Always remember that your life is a reflection of your thoughts. If you change your thinking, you’ll change your life. And if you think extraordinarily, you’ll breed extraordinary results.
Make appointments for your health check-up
It’s easy to make appointments with your clients or colleagues.
It’s easy to make schedules for your trips and bondings with your friends.
But are you setting appointments for your regular health check-up?
Do you have regular visits with your physician and dentist? Because if not, you may want to adjust your checklists and priority lists.
It will be very difficult to live your life to the fullest if you’re having problems with your health. And with that being said, medical and dental check-ups are a must.
Don’t work on your day off/vacation leave
Sometimes, even on your days off, you’ll be tempted to check on your emails to see what you’ve been missing at work. Or maybe even work a little so you won’t face the overwhelming tasks as soon as you get back. But whatever the reason is, don’t do it – unless you really, really have to.
Days off and vacation leave are your time to rest, recharge, and rejuvenate. These days will also prepare you for the coming work week again.
It’s better to catch up or face piled up tasks when you return, than not enjoying your rest days. Besides, you’re fully recharged by then. But if you have strict deadlines that you have to meet, finish them before your vacation break.
You’re doing an awesome job of attending to your priorities. You deserve to relax and have your own time to do the things you love.
Make swimming one of your habits
Swimming is fun, why not do it often? Not only is it enjoyable, but it’s also a great aerobic exercise. It’s low impact but can do wonderful benefits to your body, like helping you stay fit and have an amazing physique.
Plus, it can help strengthen your back muscles to prevent you from slouching at your workstation.
Try the power of mental health coaching
Your mental health is just as important as your physical well-being. And it must be looked after and prioritized, just like everything else.
Think of the smart ways to look after your mental health, and protect it no matter what.
Commit and invest in yourself more
If you can commit to other things, you can also commit more to yourself; if you can invest in material things, you can also invest in your physical and mental health. These can be done through simple daily self-care activities.
Have regular exercise, meditate, and nourish yourself with delectable, yet healthy meals. Don’t worry about spending money on your frequent salon or spa schedules. You can also have a weekly massage to improve your blood circulation and ease muscle soreness.
These simple self-love activities will help reduce your stress levels so you can extraordinarily feel better overall.
Touch people’s lives
Our world is not perfect. You are given the right to choose which side you’re going to take - the good and the bad, because you have your own freewill.
Actions are contagious, so it’s just right to choose the good ones. Touching a person’s life can encourage them to do the same to others. Show appreciation to one, they can do it to another. Show respect, and you will be respected too. Inspire, and they may change for the better.
Be extraordinary by allowing people to remember you for the good things you have done. Because in a world full of adversities, you can be part of the solution.
Be bold and brilliant
Do you have a lot of ‘should haves’ that you’re afraid to do because you’re considering a lot of things, or overthinking what other people might say to you? Well, this could be one of the reasons (or the only reason left) why you haven’t achieved the extraordinary lifestyle or result you’re waiting for.
Now’s the best time to be bold by turning your ‘shoulds’ into ‘musts’, and your ‘fears’ into ‘faith’. Don’t be afraid, because you’re stronger than you think. At first, it will be difficult. But if you stay strong and committed to turn your life around, the results will be exceptional.
Dare to stand out and be extraordinary. Because success is given to those who are brave enough to stand from the crowd.
