Elevate Your Environment
Elevate Your Environment
Your Environment has a far greater impact on your health, performance and quality of life than you probably realise.
If your surroundings aren't supportive everything can seem to work against you! Instead, be proactive about improving your Social and Physical Environment!
Choose a couple of the habits below and experiment with them for at least 30 days before saying they don't work. Some won't stick, but some will make ALL the difference!
First - A Thought on Behaviour Change
When we set out to change our habits, we tend to set our goals and expectations unreasonably high, setting ourselves up to fail in the process. Instead of being attached to the goal, be committed to consistent actions that will take you to your goal. Focus on the journey and let the destination take care of itself.
How do you do this? Determine how much time could you realistically spare for your new habits each week. It may only be 5 minutes a day, or one 30 minute block. Whatever it is, make this the absolute minimum time commitment to developing this habit every week! And if the time you chose initially is too much, then revise and commit less time.
Whatever time you do commit to, it wants to feel totally manageable and achievable. If you do more you'll feel MORE successful and accomplished, view it as a bonus! The alternative is trying for too much, and feeling like a failure because you can't meet this the majority of the time. And give yourself a break, 5 days a week of a 'daily' habit will still make a huge difference in your life!

Why do you need to start TODAY?
The social and physical environments you live in contribute a huge amount to your overall health, a fact often not discussed.
You are a social creature, and do MUCH better when you're with others. But we're all busy, frantically rushing from one activity to the next! Social media can be as destructive as we feel it's beneficial, and the humble conversation is giving way to more leisure time with technology (often done alone).
Did you know your physical environment can cause conditions like stroke, cancer, asthma, or depression? Not only this, it can also negatively impact your behaviours and motivation. You have limited control over some things (ie air and sound pollution) so it's essential to act where you can.
Make improving your ENVIRONMENT a priority. Be more aware in your social life, and more intentional in your physical spaces, to have the work performance and better health you want.
What do you need to know?
A sense of belonging offers us comfort and safety, so look for ways to come together and connect with other people. More importantly, find YOUR people, connect with YOUR tribe.
Also, think about the people you spend most of your time with. Do you aspire to be like these people? If not, you may benefit from being around those that inspire you to grow yourself.
Reflect on how safe and at peace you feel in your home and work spaces. If you don't feel safe and can't relax, you'll likely have increased stress levels and impaired performance.
Air quality is one of the most important aspects of your physical environment, but also can't be managed by behaviours alone. If required, consider using an appropriate filtration system.
I can assure you, that any effort to improve your social and physical environments will result in a healthier and happier you!
