How do you manage to stay upbeat and positive with all that you encounter in the course of the day? Being a cosmetologist is truly a challenging position. Your day is filled with other people’s emotions, physical labor, and sometimes even mental stress.
How do you stay healthy with all of this stuff going on?
You must learn to take care of yourself first. If you don’t make the time, then you will resent all the energy you put out and won’t be able to be the best in your daily work. It is essential to a healthy lifestyle and the success of your attitude when you carve out personal time. It is the fuel you need to sustain energy from the inside out.
Upon rising you need to create a conscious mindset to prepare your energy level for the day. This includes providing “your temple” with the proper rest, exercise, nutrition, mental awareness, and spiritual guidance. Taking this time to care for yourself is imperative, so that you may serve your clients with 110% effort. Learn to place enormous value in “me” time and you’ll maximize all other aspects of your life.
In this business you have to realize that you are a caretaker. In fact, that’s the core service you’re offering. You take care of other people’s emotional needs along with their beauty services.
“My Time” Ritual…
Get Up! When your alarm goes off, you must get up! If you want to have time, you must make time, or time moves on without you. Then you won’t have room to complain that you didn’t have any time to yourself.
Get Moving! Motion equalizes emotion. If you want to maintain a balances day you need to jump-start your body with a little movement. Run, jump, dance, walk, or do anything that makes you sweat. Do it for at least 20 minutes and as you build endurance try to continue moving for at least 40 minutes.
Feed Your Mind! Feed it with the food, the clean, the pure, the powerful, and the positive every single day. Learn to love to read! Educate yourself by reading something enlightening everyday so that you can empower your thoughts and transform your spirit.
Fuel Your Temple! Eat Right! Start your day off with a healthy breakfast choice, such as an energy-packed protein drink and multi-vitamin. This helps to boost your level of performance and get you ready to embrace your care-taking day!
Focus On Today! Tell yourself that it is going to be a great day! Be grateful for another day to serve your clients. Vibrate with enthusiasm! Your clients will appreciate all you did for them this morning!
