To thrive in the current environment, you need the energy and focus to show up as the best version of yourself—for your family, your community and, yes, your business.

We’re using MEDS as an acronym for four key health-related disciplines that will play a huge role in how well you succeed in the “new normal” market.

Here’s a breakdown of each:

MEDITATE

Like it or not, all of the best and brightest do it. Meditation can impact both your mental and physical well-being through elimination or reduction of stress. It will also help you sleep better and achieve greater focus. If you’ve never done it, try it!

Here are some of our favorite meditation apps and experts:
Kelly Howell – free guided meditations
Calm – free app for guided meditations and sleep stories
Waking Up with Sam Harris – mediation course from a neuroscientist’s perspective
10% Happier – app for guided meditation and practical teachings
Headspace – meditation exercises and community

EXERCISE DAILY

This market will likely test you more than anything you’ve encountered over the past seven to 10 years. You are going to need energy, physical and mental toughness, and an outlet for your pent-up stress. Exercising on a daily basis checks all those boxes. Find the time and make it happen!

DIET

Stop stress eating and start eating for energy! Choose your foods based on the nourishment they provide.

SLEEP

Studies show that getting eight or more hours of sleep with four deep sleep cycles reduces stress and increases your ability to manage. We’re all going to need all the rest we can get to overcome the stress of a changing market. Go to bed earlier and make sleep a priority to ensure you’re operating at peak performance in your waking hours.

Here are some great sleep apps:
Sleep Cycle – Tom has been using Sleep Cycle for 2,263 nights (at the time of this writing) to track the number of deep sleep cycles. He’s currently averaging 7-8 hours of sleep. And as Tom always says, when you measure performance, performance improves!
Pzizz – App with sounds and voices designed to help you fall asleep.
My Sleep Button – For those of you who get stuck on a thought that keeps you awake, use this app!
Relax Melodies – Just like it sounds, music to lull you to sleep.

Use the weekly trackers to stay on course with your MEDS so that you can face each day’s new challenges like a lion/lioness, not a lamb. Lead, be focused, be adaptable and thrive in your business and in all areas of your life!
