Always begin with the basics. We have heard this throughs or lives. So let's go through what i think to be the BIG 5 and the one we have the most control over.
- Breathing “our breath” Most people you and I included may not even think about breathing (I myself used to talk for many seconds at a time and forget to breathe and have to catch myself!). When you focus on your breath, you can count “one” and "two" inhale and exhale. When you get to 10, start over. I bet you'll start to feel better and more centered immediately. Those of you who follow my blog and periscope broadcasts know i talk about “keeping your breath”. The ability to keep a reasonable conversation while walking/movement.
- Body Language - "Body position and facial expressions" you can and will demonstrate more power and self-confidence by fundamentally changing the way you hold your body. For example, adopting a powerful stance—arms on hips - feet planted wide, causing you to take up more space— Actually can increases testosterone and decreases the stress hormone cortisol (don't worry lady's this will not cause any man like features...). The result? This "power positioning" will make you feel more, well powerfull.. Think about this before you meet with a potential client, go to interview, or even just before you leave the house.
- Sleep The Key Metabolic Balancer - Sleep is absolutely critical for health, anti aging and fat loss. As well as mental focus, concentration, job and academic and physical performance. As well as keeping your appetite under control, and a many other positive health outcomes. In order to “hack” sleep, you have to set a routine. Set a time to be in bed, mine is 9:30 p.m. and I wake up by 6:15 a.m. If your brain can't calm down while you're trying to fall asleep, here is a tip, tell yourself, “I'm proud of what I accomplished today, I'm going to let my brain and body rest now." Or try other trusted get-to-sleep-ASAP methods, including cutting back on alcohol.
