When you’re having a day where nothing seems to be going right and it’s getting you down, one of the best things to do is to turn it around with some quick action.
By creating a quick win via doing something that is under your control you can start getting some positive momentum again. It’s kind of like making your bed in the morning, no matter how bad your day is, at least at the end of the day you’re getting back into a nice made bed.
Here an example of 5 different things you can do, just pick one:
1. Message a client – Send a quick message to a client that’s been particularly good with their attendance, shown improvement or who you’re just grateful for.
2. Write a thank you note – Take a text message to the next level with a hand written thank you note. This can be for anyone you want to say thanks to, not just a client.
3. Get in a 20 minute workout – How often when things are hectic to we skip our own workout? Not today, get in just a quick 20 minute session.
4. Write a quick blog or social post and share it – Nothing improves my self esteem quickly quite like writing and releasing that writing to the world. It’s scary to put my writing out there, but feeling the fear and doing it anyway is how you build confidence and self esteem.
5. Plan a great workout – You always need new workouts to use, so sit down and plan out one out for next week. Make it as interactive and complete as possible with games, teamwork and variations for different fitness levels. You’ll get an added bonus with this one of having and awesome time running the workout when it’s done.
These are not the only quick wins you can do, just an example. Try to come up with a few of your own too so that next time you’re having a bad day you have something positive you can do.
P.S. I’m running a free masterclass next week called Fitness Is My Passion where I’ll be showing you the key skills and things you need to know in order to make a successful living with your fitness passion. I’d love to see you there.
