Hello. I’m Brian Tracy and
today I want to talk to you
about how to take care of yourself when you’re always working.
Brian Tracy Success Channel
We live in a fast-paced world and
sometimes succeeding in a fast-paced world
requires you to be a fast-paced person as well.
Unfortunately, being in a constant state of hustle
often leads many people to neglect their own needs.
In this message, I want to take a look at
some of the things you can do to take care of yourself
when you’re always in a state of hustle, always working fast and hard.
If you are struggling to take care of yourself due to the fast pace of your life,
consider following these tips.
1. Eat in a healthy way.
The unfortunate reality is that
food which is the most convenient is often the least healthy.
In an attempt to save time,
people will often resort to fast food,
and other quick but not so healthy options.
One of the most important things you can do to take care of yourself though
is to not fall prey to this tendency.
At least once a day
take the time to prepare and eat a healthy meal
or go to a restaurant that serves healthy options,
drink plenty of water and keep around healthy snacks,
such as fruits and yogurt and vegetable trays.
In the end, eating healthy doesn’t have to be a major time commitment
and the benefits to your well-being are well worth the effort.
Remember, your body is a machine and
food is the chemical that runs your machine.
The better the chemicals, the better your machine will run.
Next, get enough sleep.
For busy people, a solid night’s rest is
often one of the first things that is sacrificed.
The reality is though that without enough sleep
not only will you have a hard time taking care of yourself,
you’ll also be less productive
and more likely to burn out.
It’s recommended that everyone get around 8 hours sleep each night,
and sometimes 9 or 10.
Multi-millionaires, self-made millionaires,by the way,

sleep about 10 hours per night.
Poor people sleep 6 or 7 hours a night
and watch television all the time.
If you make the commitment to getting plenty of rest,
you’ll almost certainly find that
those extra few hours of sleep are worth it
in the long run.
They power you with energy and
enable you to go longer and better.
3. Learn how to deal with stress in a healthy way.
Stress and hustle most often go hand in hand.
This makes it important for anyone who lives a fast-paced life,
to learn how to deal with their stress in a manner that is effective and healthy.
How you choose to deal with your stress
is ultimately a personal decision.
But some methods are better than others.
One great stress relief method that is a favorite of mine
allows you to clear your mind and relax,
serving as a sort of reset on any stress that may have built up over the course of the day.
Whichever stress relief method you decide is best for you,
it’s important that you have a healthy outlet for stress relief if you’re living a fast-paced life.
4. Spend time with the people you care most about.
A common theme for those who are in a constant state of hustle,
is the fact that many important things are often sacrificed for the sake of time.
Unfortunately, one of the things often
sacrifices time spent with family and friends.
For the sake of your own well-being though,
as well as for the sake of the people you care about,
it’s essential that you take the time to be around your friends and family.
Maybe this means having a family breakfast or a family dinner.
Or maybe it means taking a Saturday off to go out with your friends.
Whatever, spending time with the ones you care most about looks like for you.
Be sure to find a way to
consistently fit it into your schedule.
There’s no overstating how important this is
when it comes to taking care of yourself and others.
5. Schedule time for yourself.
As important as it is to spend time with friends and family.
Spending a little time alone is important as well.
This doesn’t include time spent alone working.
But rather it entails time spent alone
relaxing or enjoying an activity to yourself.
I just read about Winston Churchill,
the most important statesman of the 20th century.
And he would spend time painting.
He would go out in his garden and
spend an entire day just painting flowers
to relax and to depressure.
So, you may wish to spend this time
reading and writing in the journal
relaxing in the hot bath or anything in between.
What matters is the fact that
everyone needs a little time to themselves, every now and then,
in order to maintain their mental health.
And those who live hectic lives,
often get very little time alone.
As with most tips on this list,
spending time alone doesn’t mean that
you have to sacrifice hours out of each day.
Even just 20 to 30 minutes
before bed or in the early morning
can make a world of difference for your well-being.
Before we wrap up,
I’d like to leave you with a thought
to share it with your friends and followers.
“Resolve that you will
respond with a positive, optimistic and cheerful mental attitude in every situation.”
Make it a habit.
Now, I love to hear from you.

relax or calm down during the day or the week?
