Yesterday was a challenge of a day as I struggled to find positivity. I vowed to myself and everybody that I was going to hydrate, I was going to meditate, I was going to exercise and be selfless. Today I can say I’m holding my head up high. I ‘m proud of what I’ve accomplished to get back on track. During the day yesterday, I drank about 100 oz of water. Every time I drank a cup of water I could feel myself feeling better.
Are you drinking enough water to stay hydrated? Today drink eight glass of water and see how you feel.
After work, I went straight to the gym. I decided I was going to go for an hour walk on the treadmill at a pretty vigorous pace. I walked for 60 minutes at 4.4 mph. While doing this I listened to classical music and read a book. Now I was hydrated and I was working on mind and body. It was all positive. I knew I had to work extra hard today to get back to where I need to be, but yesterday didn’t seem like work. It seemed like pleasure. Doing these things made me feel better because it was making me happy. I was changing myself in front of my eyes. I was experiencing the tools that help me be better in action. I was regaining my presence of being.
What tools can you use today that can make you feel like a better version of you?
Earlier in the day, I decided that my wife should take the kids trick or treating so I can have her enjoy the moment with the kids. She works really hard and doesn’t have many opportunities to do things on her own with them. Additionally, I was worried my negative energy was going to affect them. When they were ready to go trick or treating I believe I transformed my energy. I decided I was going to be selfless and just do as I planned. I dropped them off at the event and I went on my way. I headed to the grocery store and then came home to start dinner. Before bedtime, I attempted to apologize to my kids and wife about not being my best version of myself the day before. My daughter was confused, She said: “daddy you weren’t grumpy.” The kid’s bedtime routine is a stressful time especially after eating tons of candy. I almost didn’t get through the evening. I was on the brink of losing my patients. I knew after the fact I would have some time to reconnect with my breath. I was able to visualize the feeling of letting go and it worked for me. After tocking in my kids with my wife I proceeded to go a meditate. I took 20 mins to be with myself and my breath. When I was done I regained my energy. Today I woke up rested. I worked hard on myself and enjoyed it.
Today work hard on yourself and enjoy it.
