Drink more water and less coffee (I used to hate coffee, but now I fear I am somewhat addicted).
Eat less chocolate (which has crept back into my 'diet' like a stealth bomber). It was a 'treat' - just a square or two from a big block of Lindt a day, but then it became half a bar... and then....
Push harder at the gym (I'm there, so I might as well put my back into it). I'm much fitter now so there is no excuse to keep at it. No pain: No gain.
Any time I lose gym motivation I will visualise Olympic athletes standing next to me in a mirror
I will plan each day the night before. I will see their washboard stomachs and finely tuned muscles. I will get inside their heads and feel that motivation and desire. I will steal a bit of it.
I will prioritise and stick to it. That's right. This might also involve setting a timer and definitely deadlines.
I will ask The "boat" question every time I get distracted. (I have been very inspired by the boat question!). The boat question is the difference between getting there first and leading or sitting back thinking "I could have done that".
Meditate for 5 minutes every day to help calm and organise the crazy thoughts spiralling through my mind. These germs of ideas deserve this. I have lots of thoughts every day and some are very good ones, but they get lost in the maelstrom of distraction. They need to be nurtured and I think a few minutes of calm might be just the ticket.
Write in my gratitude journal. I have plenty to be grateful for.
Say "I am an Artist" every morning. Seriously, how difficult is that?
