Last week after writing to you about the need to take care of ourselves in about my Meniere’s, believe it or not, I got sick that very same afternoon. In it did it presented is Meniere’s severe vertigo and all.
After getting back home, I spent the rest the weekend rest and recuperation. Along with the Meniere’s, I was also fighting high blood pressure. I started reading articles about what successful people do and what leaders do with their morning routine.
I even started doing those things myself. By Friday I felt better. My blood pressure was lower, and the dizziness was gone. What did I do? I made some rules.
Rule one: bedtime is bedtime, not a time to read, and not the time to watch all the shows I cannot view during the day. Not the time to write or plan. I will do all that in the morning.
Rule two: I get up an hour later than I used to in the morning. Instead of five, I get up at six. I always get up at the same time every day.
Rule three: I immediately make my bed. I remember my mom always makes her bed when she gets up in the morning, and she is a person who gets things done. It gives each of us the first accomplishment of the day. And it sets the boundary between sleep and a new day.
Rule four: I take time to be grateful. I am thankful for all that I have been given, and all I have been allowed to accomplish.
Rule five: I take time to plan. I review what I have to do today and what I want to do today. I plan out both ongoing and significant accomplishments to be done, and the todos, which when done makes life better.
Rule Six: Showering and grooming help to make everyone feel better and can both soothe the and energize for the day ahead.
Rule seven: I enjoy a good breakfast with both carb and protein, and not overdoing it, fuels the body. And, proper hydration keeps everything afloat.
I am not saying that my rules are right for everyone. I just know that since I started following them, I have felt better and grown stronger.
Have a great day
