1. Move your body. Even just a 10 minute walk has the power to reset our brain. Don’t want to walk? Lift weights, do yoga, go on a run, play basketball… Whatever works for you. Just get in motion.
2. Eat real, whole foods. You don’t have to be extreme (unless you’re doing 75 HARD), but a good rule to follow is… “Are 90% of my foods real?” “Real” means does the food comes from the ground or an animal? If your ancestors wouldn’t eat it, you probably shouldn’t either.
3. Say “I love myself” 10x/day for one month minimum. Say it. Feel the love for yourself. Imagine giving yourself a hug. Do the exercise religiously. See if it works for you. What your brain believes will get reflected back to you in the external world.
4. Journal. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Get all your thoughts on the page. Don’t judge whether it’s a good thought or a bad thought. Just write it down anyway.
5. Do this Tony Robbins exercise. Takes 10-15 minutes.
6. Remove the news. The news creates fear. High energy is about producing love. Unless your job relies on tracking the markets or the news in some way, it’s not worth it. Too draining. Avoid.
7. Speak to someone who has high energy. Energy is contagious. If you interact with someone who is always in a good mood, you’re going to be in a good mood as well.
8. Read a high energy book. Look for a story of someone who’s overcome the odds. Or someone who has achieved greatness. You’ll feed off the author’s energy… Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins, Chasing Excellence by Ben Bergeron, 25 Hours A Day by Nick Bare, Relentless by Tim Grover.
11. Talk to a stranger. Ask them questions. Try to get to know them with pure intent. Learn about their life story. It’ll probably make their day a little brighter. Which will make your day a little brighter as well.
12. Laugh. Laughter is two people becoming one. Particularly when we’re laughing “with” someone (as opposed to “at” them). How to laugh? Point out the absurdities of life. Watch standup comedy. Hang around a funny person.
13. Do what you liked to do as a child. Before you thought you had to do X to make money. Or you you had to do Y because it was cool. Return to your roots and ask yourself what you were doing when you had no judgment or fear… And do that.
14. Do something you’re good at. It sucks to lift weights when you first start. But after you’ve been in the gym long enough, you start to enjoy it. Why is this? One reason is because you’re starting to get good at the activity. Mastery feels good.
15. Teach something. Teaching makes us feel good because it reminds us we are useful and valuable. When we are teaching what we love and are passionate about to someone else, we naturally feel high energy.
16. Remove all inputs for 15-20 minutes. Meditate. Take a shower. Close your eyes. Return back to nothingness to gain energy from it.
17. Get into nature. You are nature. In the modern world, we’ve drawn boundaries to help us survive. It’s useful but we must return and expose ourselves to trees, animals, and the physical world. When we spend too much time inside, we forget who we truly are.
18. Spend time without your devices. When you’re getting into nature, remove your phone. Separate yourself from your phone. Get off your laptop/iPad. Just take time to see the world as it really is.
19. Do something difficult. Doing difficult things gives us energy. Could be a cold shower. Could be a long run or 75 HARD. Could be doing that task you’ve been putting off. You’ll feel energized when you overcome the challenge / resistance.
20. Take a cold shower. If you can’t hop into freezing cold water… turn the water on room temperature, and then slowly decrease to the point where you reach your threshold of pain tolerance. Work to make the water colder and colder. Cold showers are great for body and mind.
21. Be in alignment. This is something @ComedicBizman talks about all the time. When what you’re doing aligns with the person you want to be, the natural result is high energy. You’re so enthused by what you’re doing, it gets reflected in everything you do.
22. Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while. There’s a good chance you read that and have someone in mind. So pick up the phone. They’ll appreciate it. You’ll appreciate it. The conversation will likely leave you with high energy.
23. Go create a Mentality Folder. Print it out. Review it 3x/day religiously. How can you get it? Sign up for @ComedicBizman‘s email list. You get it for free.
24. Think about your own progress. If you’ve had success in *any* area of life, think about your progression. Think about how you’ve gotten better. Really meditate on it. The result will typically be a feeling of deep satisfaction.
25. Join a group of likeminded people who are trying to achieve a similar goal. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to… Quit drinking alcohol (AA), get better at a sport (join a team), improve biz (mastermind). We become better by linking up our journey with others.
26. Meditate. Sit alone with your thoughts for even just 5 minutes. Focus on the breath or nothing. When you get distracted, simply come back to the nothing. Commit to the daily practice with 0 expectations.
27. Go to a therapist. Simply talking out your problems to a trained listener can provide a weight off your shoulders. If you can’t afford a therapist, call up a friend. If you don’t have a friend, you can shoot me a DM. 🙂
