Audio On Having An Ideal Day Contributed by Our Friends at Brendon.com

In today's audio Brendon Burchard talks with us about designing an ideal day.

The Ideal Day Checklist: How Many of These 10 Things Are You ACTUALLY Doing?

1. Get at least 8 hours sleep

According to Healthline, sleep deprivation can lead to obesity, stress, and cancer. Rest is an area that has alluded me for years. I’m a content junky, so I’m always thinking and plotting ideas before going to sleep.

I probably average 5–6 hours of sleep each night, which isn’t good enough. If you’re in the same boat, try sleeping at the same time each night and create a bedtime routine to relax you.

2. Rise early

This point has a direct link to item #1. If you’re getting to bed consistently at a decent hour, you give yourself every chance to rise early and own your time.

Between work, school and family, it can sometimes seem impossible to find time for yourself. One of the best things you can do for your health is waking up 30–60 minutes earlier than everyone else so you can focus on self-development.

3. Exercise and stretch

We all know the importance of moving and stretching your body, but still, for many of us, it’s not happening enough. Try to take away any objections by performing low-involvement activities, such as walking, yoga, and pushups. The more steps you have to complete to exercise, the less likely you are to stick to the habit.

4. Eat well

What does eating well mean exactly? It means eating as many whole organic foods as possible and listen to how your body responds to certain foods.

How you digest certain food is a good indication of whether your body likes it or not. But you know the drill—eat more veggies, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and you’ll be fine.

5. Do one thing that you love

If you’re getting enough sleep and rising early, you should find some extra time in your day to do one something that you love. This could be playing with your children/pets, reading a fantastic novel, or watching your favorite TV show. Whatever it is, make sure it’s something you genuinely enjoy.

6. Accomplish one important task

Mistaking trivial tasks for essential tasks is easy. Unimportant tasks are things that add little value. This typically includes emails, meetings, cleaning, web browsing.

Essential tasks, on the other hand, create breakthroughs and are often much harder to do. That’s why we put them off. This could be having a tough conversation with a family member, a friend or colleague. It could be writing 1000 words for your report, essay, journal or book. Or it could mean to finally finish building the deck which is now two months overdue.

Quick note: I find that when I accomplish at least one big task for the day, I sleep much better.

7. Be present with others

Turn off your phone, stop what you’re doing and focus on being present with those around you. Look in their eyes, listen to what they have to say, go deep in whatever you’re doing. We live for connection, let’s not gloss over it.

8. Give to someone else

How can you be of service? Ask this question every day. This could mean helping someone with an errand, paying it forward at the gas station, or simply being there for a friend who is in need.

9. Practice gratitude

Spend time each day, appreciating the fact that you can still breathe. You can do this in many ways; whether it’s journaling, looking up at the stars, meditating, whatever it is, build this into your daily routine.

10. Reset

So you’ve been blessed with another day of life. You’ve put your mind and body through a lot today, and now it’s time to reset and wind down. Switch off electronics, put things back in their place and start your evening routine.

What’s your score?

Great motivation podcast

I listen to a few of these 7 min pods casts every morning whilst I’m getting ready for work. I feel like it really motivates me for the day and keeps me thinking positively. Definitely worth a try!

Must Listen

Everyone needs this podcast. No matter who you are, how old you are, or where you are in your life, these are principles that everybody needs to be reminded of and it is a perfect way to start your day off and set that positive vibe. This is easily my favorite podcast for self-development.

airamat - from United States of America

I was surprised...

I was surprised that 7 minutes of excepts of speeches could have anything new to tell me about personal development. But the value is in the curation, something that is highly undervalued. The host has a knack for picking something of value for me. My next step is choose a little 7 min job every day to do while listening ... maybe even sort out my garage ! Now THAT will be a triumph

KitKat4130 - from United Kingdom

Great podcast

This is awesome. Is exactly what they say it is.

Kena161975 - from Australia

I needed this

Ever have one of those middle of the day meltdowns? But you still have hours of stuff to do and you can’t leave the office and medicate for two hours. Breathe. Headphones. 7 minutes. It works for me every time.

Make my morning, every morning

Always something insightful and motivating in every podcast! I have listened to many more and none come close to the value I get when listening to 7 good minutes!

Amber Romulus - from United Kingdom

Succinct and sweet... not to mention information-packed and very motivational episodes. Sometimes I don’t have an hour to listen and watch to motivational audio or videos, this podcast is all I need. Big thanks and more success, Clyde et al.!
