Peak State of Mind – three hacks

 

Managing a skin and hair care company takes a lot of energy. Given my advancing years (now 68 years old), people ask how I manage. In fact, it’s all about maintaining a peak state of mind.

I’m sure you have experienced days where you feel highly motivated, energized and have the energy to crush your day. Then there are those other days when you feel sluggish and unmotivated. Days where you tend towards procrastination. And the result, nothing gets done.

The fact is, that from a peak state of mind, where you are energized and motivated, you will achieve your goals. It transforms procrastinating into productive.

My days are long and active. I’m usually at my laptop by 4:30 am for two hours of uninterrupted writing and answering emails. Next, a healthy breakfast and catch up with the world news. We arrive at our production facility at 8:30 am. Then it is full on until 5:30 pm, with a short vegetarian lunch from home. Back at home, I will break for a meal between 6:30 and 8:30 pm. Then back to the laptop. To tidy up and plan our next day. Usually, I’m in bed by 11:00 pm.

To maintain my daily energy, I use three-morning hacks to get me into a peak state of mind.

Hack#1

A quick workout. A 30-minute workout is not necessary. I opt for 10 push-ups, one minute plank, 20 posture exercises against a wall, squats, and touching my toes (not quite, but I’m trying).

Hack#2

A 30-seconds cold shower. Try it. You will notice how awake, energized and fired up, you feel when you leave the shower. This instant boost of energy feels amazing. And it’s worth the initial struggle. I incorporate this into the last 30-seconds before getting out of the shower.

Hack#3

Use carefully chosen energising and mood enhancing skin and hair care products. No secret, I choose Indochine Natural.

For years I have used various essential oils in my skin and hair care formulations. These ease anxiety and improve focus. If you check through our Indochine Natural product range, you will see these. A favourite is Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea). Others include Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Rose (Rosa damascena), and Orange (Citrus sinensis). Also Bergamot (Citrus aurantium), Lemon (Citrus limon), and Geranium (Pelargonium spp.). These are all reviewed scientifically.

Make the change. Reap the personal benefits. Become the person you really want to be.
