6 Things You Can Do to Make the Impossible Possible
Expect the Unexpected and Become Limitless
We know that our Focus Rooms family (staff, clients, suppliers and more) are the kind of magical humans that always want to look for the light, regardless of what’s come on their path. We’re the kind of people that make the impossible, possible and we wanted to share this knowledge with you.
This one is all about the hope of supporting anyone looking for some great tools to set themselves up to expect the unexpected and make life more than you can imagine.
It All Starts With YOU
“As for believing things, I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible.” ? Oscar Wilde
Looking for something incredible to believe in? Look in the mirror!
It’s like the old saying; “Your only limit is you”.
Sure, there are always going to be outside factors, but how you power through is all up to you. We have learned this at Focus Rooms time and time again.
That’s why we focus so much on making sure we as individuals are living the best we can to make our team stronger and greater as a whole; THAT is where we have found our MAGIC!
Below are 6 science-based things you can do in your day to ensure you can make the impossible possible.
1. Make Your Bed
Remember when mom used to incessantly nag for this? Turns out she had a point!
In a Hunch.com survey of 68,000 people, 59% don’t make their beds, 27% do, and 12% hire a housekeeper. The surprising finding: 71% of bedmakers are happy, while only 62% of non-bed-makers admit to happiness. Bedmakers also tend to enjoy their jobs, own homes, exercise regularly, and sleep well.
On the contrary, non-bed-makers are less satisfied with their jobs, often rent apartments, avoid the gym, and wake up tired.
Now, although we don’t know exactly why, it seems bedmakers are happier and more successful than those who leave their sheets in disarray. So, why not get tucking, right?
2. Rise and Shine with the Sun
Ever heard of circadian rhythms? They’re your body’s internal clock and love a good dose of natural light in the morning.
Basking in the brilliant morning sunshine isn’t just about good vibes; it packs a punch for our body clocks! By soaking in those morning rays, we’re basically hitting the reset button on our biological clock and aligning it with the natural day-night cycle for better synchronisation.
So, throw those curtains wide and let the sun work its magic. Your mood, sleep, and energy levels will thank you.
3. Hydrate Like You Mean It
Water is your body’s best friend, especially after a night of rest. Start your day with a tall glass of H2O to kickstart your metabolism, flush out toxins, and keep your skin looking radiant.
It’s like a refreshing wake-up call that powers you from the inside.
4. Stretch Yourself
Yes, looking to do more and grow is good, but in this case, we mean that you should physically stretch!
Stretching has the cool superpower of boosting serotonin levels. Serotonin is like your mood’s best friend, keeping it steady, kicking stress to the curb, and making you feel fantastic. This happy hormone’s rise can help ward away depression and anxiety, or at least reduce it.
So, the simple act of fitting some stretches into your day (even from your desk) can significantly improve your resilience for when surprises come knocking.
5. Find Your Zen Zone and Connect with Gratitude
Take a few minutes for mindfulness meditation. It’s like a mental reset button that can reduce stress, increase your attention span, and make you feel as calm as a cucumber in a spa.
While you’re at it, jot down three things you’re grateful for. It’s a simple practice that can rewire your brain for positivity, making it easier for you to expect the unexpected and achieve what can feel unachievable.
6. Declutter Your Space, Declutter Your Mind
A tidy workspace can do wonders for your focus. Take a few minutes to declutter your desk or workspace and watch how it clears your mental clutter too.
Then, plan your day, don’t let it plan you. Create a to-do list for the day. Having clear action items listed can help you tackle challenges head-on and stay on top of your game. It also helps you to experience a sense of accomplishment for ticking things as done.
As a result, it will drive you to always keep pushing to achieve more, even when your environment might want to tempt you to wave it off as unachievable. When you do it for yourself; anything is possible!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” – Marianne Williamson
We get to put in less effort when we are searching for excuses. Being powerful takes work and consistency, but it’s more rewarding than you can imagine.
We hope these simple daily tools will support you in your mission to expect the unexpected.
