One important reason WHY I will not quit is, our future leaders are watching us. If we quit, we give them permission to be quitters. Yes I know people can do what they want, but I don't want to ever hear. How you going to tell me to keep going, and you gave up! #ItsNotJustAboutYou#portugal#GuestSpeaker
Are you one of those people who hit the snooze button every morning?
You plan to wake up at 6 am either for a morning run or work. But when the alarm goes off, it is always the same;
You hit the snooze. And it is not just once. You hit that again and again. And now it is 6:30 and you don't have time to exercise or you are already late for work.
Waking up late does not only cause you to skip training but also gives you unnecessary stress because you will be in a hurry to catch up.
So what is the solution?
1. Obvious reason, obvious fix. You don't get enough sleep. Do you really think watching hundreds of cat videos on YouTube at night seems like a good excuse to sleep late? Go to bed earlier than you normally do.
2. Bad sleep. Is your bedroom dark and silent? If you are not sleeping deeply, it is normal to be sleep deprived in the morning. So, shut down any electronic devices in your bedroom and make sure it is completely dark.
3. Bad food. Too much carbohydrate consumption may be the reason you are feeling sleepy. Swap the carbs with healthy fats. Remove sugar from your diet.
4. Eating late. If you are eating close to bed time, chances are you are going to bed with a full stomach. While your body is trying to digest the food you eat, your sleep quality will drop down. Stop eating at least 2 hours before bed time.
5. Bad habits. Hitting the snooze is a bad habit. You just need to replace that with a good one. In fact, if you just get out of the bed when the alarm goes off, you win the battle. So, put your alarm clock or phone away from you. Now, you have to stand up. And when you are out of your bed, it is less likely to go back to sleep. Just jump into shower or wear your running clothes and get into action. If you do this again and again, you will form a new habit of waking up on time.
Starting the day on time is the first step for productivity. Don't miss the opportunity.

I started the week so focused and calm knowing my goals and what I wanted to achieve.
Today I started to go a little crazy I noticed my focus was drifting, I had lost sight of my end goal and started searching for a "quick fix" of happiness I knew I was slipping and I just started feeling real shit about myself.
These are thought patterns that lead me off my path next minute I'll be down the pub looking for more temporary joy and in the past even worse habits.
I'm grateful that my brother explained this to me in such a great way when I got home from work 👊
He reminded me that my brain is not used to getting satisfaction from tasks that take a long time to get happiness, I've always gone for a quick hit haha
It has really helped me re focus 💪
