vLog 1 of 30 – My experience using a standing desk

 

 

The standing desk fad is based on a very considerable amount of research. Statistics show that, we spend more than six or more hours sitting down; shared between driving, watching TV and working at a desk. What’s also great is that standing desks provide you with the opportunity to stand and move about, and also leaves you a chance to get some of that activity that we all desire- standing desk or not.

Studies show that the accumulative effect of sitting all day for years is associated with a variety of health issues, like obesity, diabetes and cancer. Reading the research, I now know that sitting on my ass all day is the worst thing that I’m doing to my body, especially when I discovered that every minute I’m sitting, I burn a single miserable calorie. I got my first standing desk six months ago, and I’ve never looked back.

 

To stand or to sit? That is the question, are you working on a standing desk? Click To Tweet

 

So, to help you get on the standing desk bandwagon, I’ve put together the top four health reasons to get a standing desk.

1. Obesity

A lack of constant movement is the main cause of obesity. Research advocates that the key to decreasing the risk of obesity is constant, modest levels of activity throughout the day.

2. Diabetes

The harmful health impacts of sitting and the benefits of standing seem to go further than just obesity. Some studies have found that sitting for lengthy periods of time is connected with reduced efficiency in regulating levels of glucose in our bloodstream.

3. Cardiovascular Disease

Research shows that sitting is bad for our cardiovascular health, and these studies go all the way to the fifties. British scientists compared the ratio of heart diseases in London bus drivers that sit all day, and bus conductors that stand all day- they found that the drivers experienced more heart attacks than the conductors.

4. Cancer

Several studies have stated that longer periods of sitting is linked to a higher risk of different types of cancer. Colon and breast cancer seem to be more predisposed to this problem.

 

Although there are numerous situations apart from the office in which we sit for long periods, spending most of your time at a standing desk is one of the best solutions. If you’ve decided to get a standing desk, then I recommend that you share your time between sitting and standing, you need to find what works for you. It’s also very vital that you take the time to ease into this new lifestyle to avoid extreme body pains or total disinterest. (something that I did not do, but I did not experience any major pain) They say that standing for a few hours daily at first while your body adjusts to the strain will help you ease into it. But once you have become accustomed to it, you’ll never go back!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

I made it! – 30 Day Blog Challenge

Day 30 of 30 Day Blog Challenge – Done!

Hi Friends,

WOW! The end of this Challenge has come, and what a Journey it has been. I answer some questions about the experience, if you did not do the challenge then I hope you join me on some of my upcoming challenges.

Was the challenge what you expected?

No and Yes, I actually thought this challenge would be about writing blogs, so this part was as expected. What I did not expect to learn is how much my blog would evolve of the 30 days to have more features. What I found is this while I was writing different types of blogs I was thinking of new features to add to my blog, like image light boxes, sign up forms and cool plugins like tweet this. The more I blogged and shared the more I learned.

What did you learn from the challenge?

The main thing I learned from this challenge was that you need to plan ahead and be organised. Towards the end I started to be less organised and I ran into writers block and had no idea what to blog about. I also learned that I hate writing. lol I know that sounds strange given that I have a blog but I am not designed to blog daily. Moving forward it will be weekly or even a few times a month, when I have something solid to share. I also learned that I enjoy doing videos and recording more, in fact I even thought about speaking my blogs and have someone transcribe them, but I think video is the future so stand by as I start vlogging! 30 Day Challenge vLog style is coming!

Who would you recommend this challenge to?

I would recommend this to anyone who has just started a blog or someone who has stopped blogging, the 30 day challenge hands down got me off my ass and doing work. One night I was in ben and was like SHIT i forgot to blog. So up I got and got blogging. This challenge is great to get into the habit of not only blogging, but also being at the shops and have a blog idea coz you just saw or heard something random. I use trello to plan my blogs, so when I had these moments I would add it to my ideas list.

What did you struggle the most with? 

The biggest struggle for me was coming up with ideas that I wanted to write about, see I can talk about business and tip for hours, but when it comes to writing about it, different story.

Did you find any part of the challenge easy?

Setting up on wordpress was the easiest part, the rest takes work and commitment. If you really want to make this work for you, you will find a way. It is ok to quit if you find that it is not working, only thing I would suggest is find something that does work. Like maybe guest blogging, video blogging or something simple like a photo a day with a quote.

Did you ever want to quit?

I will be honest, in the last 7 days, maybe 14 times. The last 7 days was by far the hardest, it was the last stretch but was easy to say to myself “well I did most of it, go me!”

Any last tips?

Do this challenge with a group of friends, it is much easier when you are accountable in a group, I guess that is with most things.

Will you do more challenges?

YES! – Head over to my 30 day challenge page to see more and keep up to date.

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Are you a Multipotentialite? Yes, it is a real word, the video explains!

Day 29 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

Today I would like to introduce you to a new word, Multipotentialite.

I became rather excited when I watched Emilie Wapnick TED Talk, video is below for your enjoyment. I was excited because for too long I was under the thought that I needed to be one thing when I grew up. Why is that? Why can you not be a farmer and a digital marker?

I often would read that you need to find your one true passion and then do that to be successful, but for me I had passion for more than one thing and the things I was passionate about were not closely connected, and to top that off, they all made me happy!

If you read my CV you would think I had some split personalities going on, Self Employed, Web Designer, LED Lighting, Caravans, Business Owner, GM! Arrr! stop too much!

After watching the TED talk and discovering what a Multipotentialite was I felt at home and relaxed. I knew that there were others in the same boat, I also realised that I am a Multipotentialite, the best things about the talk was when Emilie talks about intersections. My mind blew up and the ideas started to flow. The though of getting multiple passions, finding their intersections and creating a career in that! Truly a Ah ha moment for me.

Enough from me, watch the TEDTalk below!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Get a mentor – They don’t even have to know.

Day 28 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

I have to say that in every book I read, every webinar I watch or seminar I attend, a tip that is always shared is to get a mentor. I would even go as far as saying why stop at 1, you can have many mentors and in fact they don’t even need to know.

While the best outcome would be to have a mentor that you can sit in a room and have a one on one chat with, another option is to find someone who inspires you so much that you just would like to be like them. An example of this would be that many people who want to be a great basketball players would have just wanted to be like Michael Jordan (MJ). In a way people who become obsessed with MJ and watch all his games and know his moves would have been indirectly “mentored” by MJ.

You can apply this in the business world too and these days with social media and google you can find everything about someone who inspires you, for me someone like Gary Vaynerchuk (aka Gary Vee) would be someone I aspire to and I watch and read everything #GaryVee. I have all his books, watch his videos, read his blog, follow on social and he does not even know it however he is someone I hands down refer to as a mentor. (well he knows now, if he reads this!)

So be sure to find someone you are inspired by and copycat what they are doing, watch and read all their content and chances are you may just turn out like them!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Here is an idea… Manage your energy, not your time.

Day 27 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

So you work 60-hour weeks, grab something to eat when you can (usually something processed and pre-packaged that you eat while you’re working or driving), rarely exercise, and are sleep deprived and exhausted. Sound bloody familiar? It’s the way of life for many and it’s leaving us distracted, unengaged, and unhealthy. That’s because we are trying to accomplish as much as possible in a certain number of hours.

What if I told you it doesn’t have to be this way? What if I told you that there’s a better way? I’ve found that by managing my energy instead of managing my time, my productivity and my quality of life has improved.

I made life changes that give me more energy, and I’m accomplishing more in less time believe it or not. I also feel better. There are so many things you can do to increase your energy. A big one is to improve your sleep and also start doing meditation.

You also need to know when you operate at your best, if you are a morning person then you need to do the important tasks first and do them in the morning, and if you work better after 9pm then this is when you need to do your important work. Get it?

Next time you need to increase productivity, manage your energy and not your time. Click To Tweet

Most of us are sleep-deprived. There is a lot of information on the internet about how you can improve your sleep. Developing a nighttime routine, cutting alcohol out or back, and turning all electronics off an hour or two before going to bed are a few of the things I learned about that are easy to do. Simply improving your quantity of sleep will increase your energy, allowing you to more fully engage with friends and family and accomplish more in less time. I am not saying you need to sleep more, you just need to sleep better.

Long stretches of work without a break drains your energy as well. Take a break a couple of times a day. Set an alarm on your phone or computer if you have to so you don’t forget. When the alarm goes off, get up from your desk, go for a walk, get a drink of water, go outside if possible get some fresh air. Your head will be clear again and the movement will get your blood moving again, giving you that energy boost. On a plus side the extra exercise a couple of times a day will help you sleep better too!

Managing your energy also benefits your workplace, whether you work for yourself or someone else. Studies show that companies whose employees manage their energy are more productive and have less turnover than other companies. Their employees take fewer sick days and accomplish more through the day.

Taking steps to manage your energy instead of your time benefits you, your friends, your family and your workplace. So next time you need to increase productivity, manage your energy and not your time.

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Have you discovered the power of deep breathing?

Day 26 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

Did you know that your brain consumes over 20% of the oxygen that you breath in?

The quality of the oxygen you breath is critical to the health of your blood and your brain function. If you are not getting enough oxygen in your lungs which oxygenates your blood and flows to your brain you will not perform at your best, your thinking will be cloudy and you feel tired.

A great way to get more oxygen into your blood is to exercise so your breathing increases and you take deep breaths which fills more of your lungs with oxygen. It is your lower lungs that has the ability to absorb more oxygen into your blood.

You can also force your lungs to breath in more oxygen. I recall being at a Tony Robbins event where he asked us to breath in, hold it, then he asked us to breath in a bit more and hold it, a bit more and then a bit more. Try it, you can always breath that little more. You doing it? Go on.

Doing this three times a day will energise you to a level that will be surprising! Click To Tweet

Happy deep breathing and a toast to more energy and feeling better!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Do Rocks first, then pebbles and play with sand LAST.

Day 25 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

Do Rocks first, then pebbles and play with sand LAST.

What the hell am I talking about? You need to watch this video and it will all make so so so much sense.

It seems so simple yet hardly anyone is doing it. Doing this alone will make you kick MASSIVE goals.

Moral of the Story? Do the important tasks first and then fill the gaps with less important tasks. I know this sounds so basic but I really think the video gives everyone a powerful visualization of what you are doing if you fill your life with stupid sand tasks.

So before you go anywhere, work out what your BIG rocks are and work towards getting them in your bucket of life!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Day 23 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hi Friends,

Today I want to quickly share something that I did, that I know will instantly gave you more time in everyday.

This is not some ground breaking news. This is not a high level pro tip. This is not rocket science. It really should be common sense.

All you have to do is delete every time wasting app off your phone, uninstall all the games from your computer and cancel your netflix subscription. And maybe stop with the game consoles while we at it.

Let me tell you, if you want to gain more time than others around you this one discipline alone will give you a competitive advantage. While they play, you hustle!

if you want to gain more time than others around you this one discipline alone will give you a… Click To Tweet

I can not remember the last time I watch live TV with time wasting Ads, I have never owned a game console and Angry Birds… what the hell is that. (the FB invites were enough to waste some of my time) You need to use your time wisely, every bloody second matters.

Time is the one thing we all have equal. yet we all use it so differently. We all have 86,400 seconds a day and you should spend it as wisely as you do with money. Unlike money, this time bank account fills up with 86,400 more every day. make every single second matter.

So think about it, what are you doing right now, is that getting you closer to your goals and dreams?

Night, I am off to hustle.

30 Day Blog Challenge Network Marketing Together Help Wealth Creation

Business card networking is DEAD, you need to be SOCIAL networking. Are you ready?

Day 22 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hi Friends,

I have some bad news today, the traditional way of networking is DEAD, that is right, you can not longer expect to go to a networking event and hand out business cards or collect them and see your business grow.

We live in a time where everything is high-tech and people are looking for high touch experience when they meet with you. They need to know that you care and you have their interest at heart.

Of late I have started to connect and network using social media and other alternative way.

Here is what I do, when I am at a networking event and people ask me for a business card my response is I don’t have one, let’s connect on linkedin or FB. This enables us to be in contact a lot easier then emails, because let’s face it, email is the new snail mail.

Using SOCIAL media is the new way of networking, over the past 4 weeks I have been revving up my social activity and the amount of like minded and amazing people I have meet via comment chats or direct messages is unreal. The amazing thing is that I can be doing this kind of networking 247, while I am on the train, while I am multitasking and for the hell of it, even in bed in the last hours of hustle.

I 100% still go to networking events as you need to be see to be heard, in fact these days when I go to networking events I try to be more involved with the organization of the event or even be a speaker at the event. If you really want to be noticed then hands down you need to be on the stage, that gives you the best possible chance to meet the most amount of people in the room, with the least amount of effort. Sure that makes Tim Ferriss very happy.

Listen more than you talk, use your ears and mouth ration 2:1 Click To Tweet

My networking tips in somewhat order.

  • Be clear on who you would like to meet and why?
  • Your goal is to have people, Know, Like and Trust you!
  • Be the speaker of the event or host, if that is not possible be the one person in the room that people want to meet.
  • Start conversations by asking simple but open ended questions.
  • Networking is like dating, don’t ask for marriage on the first date.
  • Listen more than you talk, use your ears and mouth ration 2:1
  • IF and only IF you have enjoyed the chat, thank them for their time and ask if they would like to continue the chat after the event.
  • Add on social on the spot! if you have to, get a business card. (Read below what I do when I get a business card)
  • The next day follow your new friend around on social, not stalker style either, DO NOT like old photos that is wired)
  • Then you Jab, Jab, Jab and then Right Hook! (If you don’t know what this is then you need to subscribe to be alerted of my podcast, i’ll be covering that off soon)
  • JV, Partner, Guest Blog, Do lunches and help each other grow & win, win, win!

What I do IF I happen to get a business card

In fact, I often don’t even take the card from them, I simply take a photo. Why? Great Question, not only is it more environmentally friendly, but it enables me to email it to my VA who will try to find the person on social, send friend request and then types all the info right into my iCloud contact so just like BAM the details are in my phone! hey presto! Surly as business owners our time can be used to solve greater problems. right?

Hope you have enjoyed this, please comment below your networking tips, tricks and success.
