As essential doctors working and living during a pandemic, we need to serve our patients and communities to the best of our ability.
It is important to remember that we are the leaders and set the example for others to follow. Especially during times of crisis, we must be more vigilant to protect and elevate our thoughts, habits and behaviors.
The thoughts that you think are linked to your vibration. When you start having ‘doom and gloom’ thoughts you will lower your vibrational frequency and start to attract more of what you do not want. When you lower your frequency, your staff will lower their frequency, your patients, your family, and your community. Maintaining positive thoughts is one of our pillars to success.
It takes 30 days to make a habit. Most people are staying home and making new habits. If you are also making new habits because the gym is closed, your kids are out of school, your spouse is home now, it is time to evaluate the habits that you are creating in your life.
Most people have been under a stay at home order for over 30 days. This means new habits are forming.
During times of crisis it is easy to slip back into bad behaviors. If you used to smoke a little, you might start smoking more. If you were a casual weekend drinker, you might find yourself having a drink on the weekdays now too. If the gym and healthy eating were a main part of your routine and now, you are eating chips and not doing home workouts. You might be falling into some bad behaviors.
Top 5 Tips for Maintaining Focus
Tip 1: Hour of Power
Start your day with the hour of power. It will set your intention for the day so that you can focus on what you want to happen and make sure that you are future focused. Do your hour of power at least two times a day. Once in the morning and once at night. If you are not sure what the hour of power is, then head over to my podcast and take a listen.
Tip 2: Cut Out Social Media Surfing
It is good to post uplifting and positive messages on your social media platforms like twitter, Facebook and Instagram, but do not linger. Cut out the habit to surf on social media. Everyone has an opinion, and everyone is turning into an expert. Do not get into bickering matches or think you can educate everyone on your social media pages. Let the small stuff go.
Tip 3: Get Outside
Everyday make it a habit to get outside and take a walk, do some gardening, or just soak in some Vitamin D. We tell our patients how important it is to get fresh air and we need to take our own advice. Take some time everyday to get outside.
Tip 4: Practice Gratitude
Did you get a PPP loan? Did you get a Medicare stimulus? Have your patients continued to show up for their appointments to support you? Is your family in good health? Are you in good health? There are so many reasons to be grateful today and every day. Practice being grateful every morning when you wake up and at night before you go to bed.
Tip 5: Think Expansion
If you have been complacent in the past. It is time to break that complacency and start to act. There is no better time than the present. Other practitioners are going to be looking to rent space and make changes to help lower costs and you could take advantage of that. Find a naturopath, an acupuncturist, a massage therapist, a young doc who needs space.
The most important tip is to do your hour of power every day. The hour of power sets your intention for the day and can make the difference between getting everything accomplished and nothing accomplished. You should be working on making this a habit everyday of your life. If you get away from it, then start back up the next day.
The hour of power will raise your vibration, increase your good habits and help to decrease bad behaviors.
