Productivity Tip for You

One quick productivity tip for you today!  One might think that since I work from home, running an online business, that I  just stay in pajamas or sweats all day.  For me, pajamas and sweats don’t make me feel like working.   My productivity tip for entrepreneurs like myself, especially those that work from home, is to dress for the occasion, meaning dress for work, even if you aren’t leaving the house.

This morning after taking my boys on a walk, I took a quick shower and put on a cute dress that I know makes me feel good and ready to work.   It was while working at Powder Blue Productions for Bret and Chalene Johnson that I learned firsthand about dressing for your mindset.  Even though we were a workout based company and rarely had other people come into the office, former owners Bret and  Chalene wanted us to dress nice in the office.  When you dress for business or work, you tend to be more productive than if you just put on something comfy like sweats.

When you are dressed and feel confident, the rest of your day will follow. Think about how different clothes make you feel and how different you carry yourself when you are wearing certain clothes.  Or how your confidence level changes in different outfits, we all have those certain outfits that make us feel good and ready to take on whatever the day has in store for us.   I have found that my work from home style definitely affects my productivity mindset. Author, Personal Development Speaker and mentor for me (from afar), Brian Tracy, believes in the idea that if you dress for success your mindset will follow.

Dress so that you feel confident and the work you do will exude the same confidence!

Have a great day!  Holly

How I Eat Healthy on the Go

I have a super busy day ahead of me, if you follow me at all, you know that I have been helping with the filming of Chalene Johnson’s new educational program called the One3One diet. I normally work from home, but I feel so blessed to be able to help with the filming of this new program.

The days have the potential to run long, so I have had to make sure I prepare myself so I can sustain my energy and health. So, when I made my shake today, I added a fiber boost along with a power green boost, knowing that it would likely be a long day. I also added a banana so I have my greens covered, along with fiber and fruits.

Right now, I am running a support group to help people with healthy eating. I often get questions about what to do when you are traveling or when you know you have a long day ahead. I’ve developed these practices throughout the years and wanted to share with you some of the ways you can eat healthy on the go.

A lot of time my husband and I attend personal development and business conferences and if you add up all the time it takes to get to and from the event, along with the actual conference, you are looking at being away from home like 14 hours. What I normally try to do is pack nuts, protein bar, dried cranberries, normally a banana.

I also carry a shake with me that I could mix up if I can’t find a healthy alternative. Pack things that don’t need refrigerated so they will last throughout the day. Eat a big breakfast and bring with you healthy snacks that will keep you from grabbing something unhealthy during your those long days. Always carry water with you.

Those are the tips I have for preparing for a long day ahead. I would love to hear from you what kind of tips you have. I’m super excited to learn more today about the One3One diet and I will share with you all the details in a later broadcast. For now make sure you follow me for more tips from me on eating healthy.

 

Productivity Tip

One quick productivity tip for you today!   For entrepreneurs like myself, especially those that work from home, get up and get dressed for work, even if you aren’t leaving the house.  One might think that since I work from home, I don’t have to worry about what I wear.  I have found, while working my home based business, that I am much more productive when I am dressed for my work day ahead.

This morning after taking my boys on a walk, I took a quick shower and put on a cute dress, not a big thing, but I know my mindset shifts to work mode when I feel confident in what I am wearing.  When you are dressed for work, your mindset is often different than if you were to stay in your sweats or yoga pants all day.

While working for Bret and Chalene Johnson at Powder Blue Productions, I really learned from my now mentors that you should dress for your mindset. Even though we were a workout based company, we were to dress nice in the office.

When you are dressed and feel confident, the rest of your day will follow. Think about how different clothes make you feel and how different you carry yourself depending on what you have on.  Or how your confidence level changes with different types of outfits?I have found that my work from home style definitely affects my productivity mindset.

I became a Beachbody coach in 2010 after the birth of my 1st child. I signed up solely for the amazing discount on Shakeology. I soon realized that the community of coaches is nothing like any other community I have encountered. The positive energy oozed everywhere and it truly was contagious.

 Zwart before and after

I was introduced to Beachbody back in 2008 when I saw my first P90X infomercial. I recruited my husband, Kevin, to do it with me after we were both at fitness lows and at weight highs. After 90 days, we were pounds lighter and inches smaller. I was hooked!

I have always struggled to stay at a healthy weight.  I was considered the big girl with a pretty face pretty much my whole life.  I would yo-yo with my weight but was never able to reach my goal. I would also just gain the weight back after I went back to business as usual.  I had hit a point in the spring of 2011 where I knew something had to be done as I was weighing in at 255 pounds!  I was tired all the time, grumpy, depressed, suffering from sleep apnea, and so out of shape I couldn’t play with my kids at the park the way I wanted to.  I was bitter and jealous of the other moms who seemed to have what I desired.
