Super U Podcast | Flourishing in 2023 with Amy Eddy
“Okay, well, I am not just brown-nosing. I really have learned a lot and have a lot of new perspectives over the last couple of years because of you and what I’ve learned from you. And it’s funny because this answer would have been very different in 2019. But in 2023, I will have had a successful year if I reached my goal, my number goal, but at the same time, you know, exercise regularly get those mental breaks regularly have positive relationships with every one of my family members, and have a social life. And like watching TV once in a while, wish I can get a little bit of time for some entertainment. But it’s basically all of it, right? And we can’t, we have to sleep, we only have 24 hours in a day. So that’s the trick is figuring out how do I have all of those things without, you know, losing sleep and losing my weekends? And it’s hard and it’s a constant, you know, reshuffling and a balancing act to try to figure out. Okay, I can’t do everything today, but what are those two or three things I can do today? And to answer your other question, I’m going to say best-case scenario, right? Because we all have those days, like usually, for me, it’s on Thursday, I sleep in and I don’t work out and I just roll out of bed and get the kids out the door and then sit down to the computer in my pajamas and worked for a couple of hours. But I feel like that’s okay to you know, to have those places where you can give yourself a mental break or a physical break.
But on my best days, I’m up about an hour before the kids, I will do a 10-minute yoga stretching video, I will read something positive, and get on the foam roller for a few minutes. And then you know, start getting the family ready for the day, while I’m listening to something positive, a positive podcast like yours. And so by the time the kids are up, I’m lucky because they don’t get up too early. But by the time they’re up, I’ve already you know, had my reading time and got my body to feel good after the kinks from sleeping. And I just have found that I’m much calmer, but that first hour of the day with a family can be so stressful. And I generally, do not always, but generally, I’m a lot just calmer and have more patience, when I’ve had that time to myself first. So we get kids out the door. And then you know, it’s sitting down and grinding for a while. Whatever, I think you might ask me this, and I’m going to just beat you to it. But one of the best pieces of advice I’ve learned was actually from my husband, and I don’t remember where he learned it, but it was sprint and repeat. And I think Brendon Burchard talks about this some too, like, we can all focus and I know we’ll talk more about focus for about, you know, 45 to 55 minutes, the average person can stay focused on a task. And then we need a break. And even if it’s one minute or five minutes, or 15, like give yourself that mental break to come down. And think about whatever you need to think about and get something to eat or whatever it is and then go do it again. And we can do that right. All of us can get better at that. And it’s just being willing to practice and fail and practice again. And those are the best days when I’ve I mean, I feel like I shouldn’t say but those days are when I’m still you know, sold to bookings. But I feel like I feel the best. After a day where I was able to get into that get into the zone. You know, we when we can get into that mindset. Those are the days when we feel the most fulfilled because we were mindful about what we were doing.”
