A Sneak Peek at the Episode
[5:00] It can be very helpful to do the same thing each day to help train your brain to know what is coming next.
[6:45] Nicki and Kate discuss how getting out of your house (even if you work remotely) can be beneficial. Drawing on the experience of Sara Blakely, the founder of SPANX, and the importance of her “fake commute” each morning.
[9:00] Nicki talks about how beneficial organizing her tasks for the day with a list can be for her. And the powerful feeling of accomplishment when she gets to cross an item off that list! Kate mentions how much of a mental drain it is to scroll her Facebook first thing in the morning.
[12:10] What works for you may not work for everyone else. But ask yourself, “Is what I am choosing to do beneficial for me physically and mentally?”
[17:45] Nicki and Kate chat about how to plan ahead to make your morning flow smoothly. Consider what the ideal start to your day looks like. What helps you?
[21:30] It is so easy to get distracted or lose track of your goals. Nicki and Kate both agree that their phones are often the culprit, so setting them to DO NOT DISTURB (blocking the fun stuff while still allowing potentially important calls—Hi, Mom!—to come through) is a game changer.
