I read a Nerd Fitness article and I learned good stuff.
When I was a child, I was reserved and I was full of nonsense. I let go of thinks in my bedroom and I was doing everything at the last moment.
Few years later by doing research on internet about personal development, I found 3 words that help me to build health habits, improve my strength training, prepare meals in advance and pay my bills.
It’s very effective and simple. These 3 words are : Do it now.
Often after using something , I left it there and there were tasks that I would leave aside to do the when I was less busy. Do you do that ?
When I came home, I played video games. I bought preprepared foods to save time in the kitchen. And of course, I had beers in my rucksack.
Looks at what was going on :
I went looking for a plat but all plates were dirty in the sink
After cleaning a plate and eating, I left the dirty plate in the sink.
After playing video games, I wanted to sleep but there was a bunch of clean clothes to put on my bed. Bam, I put my clothes on the side and I sleep.
I woke up and all my clean clothes were on the floor.
I went looking a plate for my breakfast and I saw a bunch of dirty plates in the sink, Bam, I shouted insults in the kitchen.
Every morning, I had a negative state of mind. I was a lazy dumb
When I watched it I said : « Shit, it’s me. It’s sucks ! ». When I wanted to change, I found some tips of Leo Babauta and this motived me to :
Buid new healthy habits
Put my clean clothes in the closet instead of throwing them on furnitures
Clean plates immediately after eating. Now in the morning, everything is ready for my breakfast.
When I receive a mail, email or a message from my social media, I answer immediately instead of doing a reminder and responding later.
It’s my responsability
Do you noticed when you put something aside, you should manage it some day ? But I noticed when it happen, I must manage a lot of stuff in the same time that I had set aside.
Be indifferent to things
When we put something aside, it means that we’re indifferent. The problem is the day where we should manage it, we’re too tired.
Without knowing it, we accumulate mental stress by seeing things that have to be done. By exemple when I see a bunch of dirty plates in the sink. I know I need to clean them but I don’t do it.
Wait the deadline
A great exemple of a time when indifference and mental stress reach the maximum. I need to have more time to make my tax return and I have some hours left. Watch this beautiful Homer Simpson’s video , you’ll like it.
Wait, I’ll show how it went. It’s funny because my brother to the same thing now :
Clean clothes on my bed
It was always a problem before sleep, especially when I brought a girl back to my bedroom.
Train later in the day
Somedays, I was able to train in the morning but I didn’t do it. All of a sudden, it’s 23h (11pm) and I still don’t train. I trained at home because the gym closed.
Don’t write an article
Somedays, I didn’s write an article on my blog because there were a lof of cool stuff on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat ou this on Youtube . I had to write 2 articles the next day.
Do it now
By putting things aside, we find ourselves doing a lot of work because everything ends up at the same time. « Do it now » allow us to do 3 importants things :
We can work less and have the same results. Why work more and have more stress ?
Anyway we have to do this task so let’s do it now. In this way, it’s done.
Less mental stress
Each time we make procrastination, we worry more about this task in our subsconscious. Improve our subsconscious, it’s improve our lives.
Do you know the 3 seconds techniques to talk to a girl ? it’s the same to do a task, more you wait and more doubt will make you become lazy.
If you do your training at the end of the day, do a micro train when you wake up. Do pushups and abs to be in mode « I’m in good shape ». This is will help you to stay motivated to do your training after school/work.
Cook meals for all the week
If you cook all your meals for the week, do it on Sunday. Prepare all your meals in advance to avoid to eat unhealthy during school/work. You don’t have excuses.
If you want save time with your emails, read and answer immdiately or archive.
If you want clean plates everytime, clean your plates after eating.
When your laudry finished, immeidately put it in your closet.
Open the letter and manage it immediately.
Do you have a funny story and the conclusion is « I can’t believe I was so lazy » ?
