Being a business owner and a mom can be overwhelming, to say the least. From managing the daily operations of a business to raising children, it can be challenging to keep up with everything and still find time for self-care. However, I have found that by doing one hard thing a day, I am able to accomplish more and feel better about myself. In this blog, I will share my experience of juggling business, motherhood, and self-care and how I have found success in doing one hard thing a day.
The Power of Doing One Hard Thing a Day
- What is a hard thing?
- Why is it important to do one hard thing a day?
- Benefits of doing one hard thing a day.
A “hard thing” can refer to any task or activity that requires effort, discipline, or courage. It could be something that challenges you mentally, physically, or emotionally, or a task that you have been putting off because it seems daunting or boring. Examples of hard things could be exercising, studying, tackling a difficult project, having a difficult conversation, or learning a new skill.
It is important to do one hard thing a day because it can help you grow as a person and achieve your goals. When you challenge yourself to do something difficult, you expand your comfort zone and build resilience, confidence, and discipline. By consistently doing one hard thing a day, you can develop a habit of taking action towards your goals, instead of procrastinating or avoiding difficult tasks. I push myself to do this constantly, and have an accountability partner – Chelsee our gym Manager. She helps me constantly by giving me encouragement, and kudos when I accomplish my one thing! It is great to find an accountability partner to help you along the way, maybe a friend, spouse, co-worker or even a pet!
The benefits of doing one hard thing a day are numerous. I have definitely seen these results in myself! Here are a few:
- Improved self-discipline: By pushing yourself to do something difficult, you can develop greater self-discipline and control over your actions.
- Increased productivity: When you tackle a difficult task early in the day, it can give you a sense of accomplishment and motivation to tackle other tasks.
- Boosted confidence: When you successfully complete a hard task, you can feel a sense of pride and confidence in yourself.
- Personal growth: By consistently challenging yourself to do difficult things, you can develop new skills, knowledge, and perspectives.
- Reduced stress: By facing your challenges head-on, you can reduce stress and anxiety related to procrastination or avoidance of difficult tasks.
As a business owner and a mom, it is important to find a balance between work, motherhood, and self-care. By doing one hard thing a day, we can accomplish more and feel better about ourselves. Additionally, instilling the values of hard work and dedication in our children can help them succeed in the long run. So, take the first step towards balance and try doing one hard thing a day.
