A day in the life of…

You have trained long and hard, and there’s no way you’re not making it to the finish line. Years of hard work and training are not about to go in vain. You cross the finish line and the crowd goes wild, cheering for your great accomplishment. The greatest joy you feel is from within. Why? You set out to do something you’d never done before, you took a chance, gave it all you had and finished strong. That great sense of accomplishment comes because you finished what you started. You went for the challenge and made it happen.

That, my friends, is exactly how I will feel when I complete The Suitcase Entrepreneur 30 Day Blog Challenge. And guess what it’s not too late to join. Challenge yourself!

Today’s prompt is:

Which key tools will you turn to regularly to maintain your mindset and how will you use them effectively?

I am a highly motivated individual already, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need external motivators. Here are the top ways I maintain my mindset.

20130812-123011.jpgEvery morning my alarm clock goes off with a reminder to workout, something that reminds me why I even made that commitment in the first place. Right now my alarm notification reads “Time to Run” since I’m training for a half-marathon and it’s also a song I love by Lord Huron.

When it’s time to head out the door to work I have another push notification scheduled, this one is just a reminder “Your attitude shapes your day. You’ve got this!”

I follow inspirational boards on Pinterest and check-in ever so often to find a beautiful quote of the day.

I read success stories of others who have been when I have been and want to go where I want to go (like The Suitcase Entrepreneur)!

I push myself a bit more each day to move forward and do what I have never done before. After all when I up the stakes and beat it, it’s winning my own game. And let me tell you, I like to win!

How do you stay motivated daily?

A couple of months ago my career transition as I went from a moderately busy marketing and production coordinator to an incredibly busy account manager. How can you not jump at an exciting opportunity and huge responsibility? I threw myself into my work and learned that, long hours, project management and short breaks for yet another cup of coffee might not be the best way to handle stress. Which is why I was thrilled to discover headspace only this afternoon. (Get some).

Headspace is an app for those of us who are stressed and need to find the time to practice mindfulness and meditation. I must admit, those first 10 minutes of meditation were…well…stressful. I can’t handle sitting still and doing nothing, even 2 minutes seems like forever! However 10 minutes later I felt relaxed, rejuvenated and ready for another round.

While my career is in health and wellness sometimes I forget its more than just eating right and staying fit, there is the wellness component which touches mind, body and soul.

What do you do to reduce stress?

Headspace. Get some.
