Manufacture Your Day by REMEMBERING TO REFILL YOUR CUP
Here is an interesting fact:
When I work with my coaching clients at the beginning of the week, they have noticeable more energy and are more focused than at the end of the week. That’s why you must refill your cup every day of the week.
Not too long ago I worked with a lady from Mexico. She works 12 to 16 hour days, and this has become her new normal. Is anyone surprised that she shows aggressive behaviour towards her co-workers?
How can her boss expect a person who is overworked, overwhelmed and under-appreciated to deliver top level performance?
This just shows a tremendous lack of understanding basic principles of human performance.
On the bright side there are more and more organizations that emphasize the importance of effective stress management and physical activity. This is a win-win for the employer and the employee.
Everyone is different and not everyone likes to work out, I get it.
However, if you are a person who likes to exercise, please lead by example and encourage as many people as you can to move. The beginning is tough but if you make it a habit, it becomes a healthy addiction.
I am a workout enthusiast:
- cross fit
- table tennis
are all fun activities that I enjoy.
In the past I have tried
- baseball and
with little to no enthusiasm.
Last weekend I tried paddle boarding, which is a great core and upper body exercise, and I will definitely do this again.
It is key to find something that works for you.
I am convinced children wouldn’t have to deal with all the diseases that label them (ADD, AHDD, anxiety) if they would engage more in outdoor activities and be less on their phones playing games.

As a friendly reminder, here are some workout benefits:
- Happier outlook on life
- Increased energy level
- Reduced risk of chronic diseases
- Great for brain health and memory
- Better sleep
- Incredible for stress management
Over the years I managed to inspire many people to exercise. Some joined a gym, others started to cycle, walk or to run. For me this is priceless.
Motivation is what gets you started and habit and discipline is what keeps you going. Find something to fill your cup.
