Do you remember when you were younger you felt like you could do things forever? You could stay out late and jump up and be to work on time? And do it over and over again? Then, when you started getting a little older, you found out that plan doesn’t work like it used to.
Here are a few things some top producers at National Agents Alliance do to re-charge the batteries and increase their energy.
- Garbage in, garbage out: You probably can’t eat the way you used to, and you’ve realized that when you eat crummy food, you feel crummy. When you eat better…healthy lean meats, veggies, fruits, more natural foods…you’ll look and feel much better. Most people who rush through the drive-thru actually feel bad later in the day and get tired in the middle of the afternoon. What you put in your body will determine how you feel!
- Get some exercise: Just moving your body gives you energy. It doesn’t mean you have to run a marathon; just get some light, regular exercise. Cardio activities that get the blood flowing create endorphins and you’ll feel great. This can really carry you through the lulls in the work day that once upon a time would make the day seem like it would never end. Lots of options…walk, jog, bike, lift weights, play tennis…get a plan and be regular with it.
- Recharge with rest: Not getting enough sleep can really throw you off…your body temperature is off, you tend to eat more than you need, and you tend to lose focus easily. Mature adults need 7 or more hours of sleep to function optimally, and it too needs to be regular. Four hours one night and nine the next does not work as well as a consistent sleep pattern. Give your body a chance to regenerate.
- Control your thoughts, control your mood: If you find yourself in a bad mood stop and check your thoughts. You’ll soon see why your mood is bad. Remember, thoughts are things, so you need to put good, positive thoughts into play. You control your thoughts; you’re in charge, so replace negative thoughts with empowering and energy-creating positive thoughts.
- Make a to-do list: Prioritize your list and tackle the most important items first. Keeping track of all that needs to be done will keep the stress away. Don’t make the list too long, but a little bit every day whittles the list down, and you’ll never have to worry about forgetting something important.
- Reach out and touch someone: Like the old telephone commercial says, give someone a call, especially someone you have not spoken with for a long time. Association is big in NAA, very important, and Andy Albright teaches this all the time. Try to hang around with successful people, and remember it works both ways…so make the effort to keep in touch from your end. You’ll get a charge out of it, just like when someone calls you out of the blue.
