All of these things are required at some point. Whether it's your house, your car, your business, your relationship, your health, your mindset or your life.
Sometimes you need a quick fix to get to the finish line or make your destination.
However, that quick fix is often just a bandaid for what really requires a quality repair and would need to be addressed later.
Maintenance, on the other hand, can often avoid the need for quick fixes and quality repairs.
The key is to know when you need each of these items.
For life, I believe there are a few regular maintenance items we should all be doing, just like fluid changes on our cars.
Do these 5 things daily, or even weekly, and let me know how your life improves.
Not sure how to start? Pick one to focus on this month, turn it into a habit and then start the next one. If you do none of them right now, it will be too painful to do all of them at once.
If you need resources for inspiration, motivation or accountability, here are a few items that have helped me:
Hopefully this blog is inspiring you, however, I pulled my inspiration to start this blog from Seth Godin's Blog.
When I meditate at home, I like to use Calm but have also used Headspace. For a deeper experience, if you are in Ottawa, I recommend you swing by Younion.
For myself, I tried many things but have realized that I need accountability to stay on track for exercise. Right now I'm doing adult gymnastics courses with Alex Kazam Gymnastics.
The Power of When is the best book I have read on understanding sleep and you can also check out The Power of When Quiz.
There are plenty of books, blogs and podcasts out there and I believe you need to find what works for you. As a rule of thumb though, if it comes in a box or is made in a box (factory) it's likely not healthy for you.
