The Ability To Relax And Rejuvenate is Critical To Your Results.
In fact, when we don’t take the time to relax and rejuvenate, our stress levels can increase and productivity decreases.
Having just returned from my annual trip to Kauai, Hawaii, it is easy to understand why so many of us think we need a vacation in order to wind down. And yes, there is certainly something to be said about getting away.
The secret, however, is to incorporate a practice of rejuvenation into your daily routine. This practice provides the framework needed to operate consistently at peak performance and avoid the burnout that comes from overworking.
Understanding the importance of downtime is critical for your ability to unwind so your mind and body can recharge. It is also a vital secret to becoming a millionaire, a top earner, or highly successful at achieving anything.
In my second book, The 7 Principles of Becoming a Fulfilled and Wealthy Millionaire, I publish my 30+ years of research on how millionaires create amazing lives. In addition to having significant wealth, these people also have excellent health, great relationships, and peace of mind. Part of how they achieve such an amazing life is by taking time to recharge on a regular basis.
Research shows that incorporating downtime regularly is just as important for achievement as the action we take!
A big part of refueling and rejuvenating includes getting adequate sleep. Experts agree that you need between seven and eight and a half hours of sleep per night. Rarely will less than seven hours of sleep be adequate enough to feel fully rejuvenate.
The result of not getting enough rest is often a sub-par performance. People who brag about getting by on four to six hours of sleep per night are fooling themselves. They are also dramatically increasing their odds of developing obesity, cancer, diabetes, and other health problems.
Another important habit for rejuvenating is to stay properly hydrated by drinking plenty of water. While expert opinions vary on the “right amount” of water intake, a common recommendation is to drink 50% of your body weight in ounces each day.
For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, then drinking 75 ounces of water each day would be ideal. If you participate in physical activities, you may need to drink more water. Always check with a qualified advisor before changing your diet or exercise routine.
Your mental state is also essential to your success, including the way you think about things. Strategies to control your thoughts include focused breathing, meditation, chants, and yoga. Walking, reading a personal growth book, or taking a power nap can also do wonders for re-energizing your focus and motivation.
Adding some quiet time into your day provides you with a moment of peace and clarity in your own space. This will allow you to get clear and attract what it is that you want regarding your money, business, or overall life.
While we each need to figure out exactly what works for us, taking time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate on a regular basis will do wonders for your overall health and life.
On your journey to financial freedom, becoming a millionaire, or achieving whatever your heart desires, make sure you include a ritual of regular rejuvenation – you will be so glad you did!
