Your body is literally the most important thing that you own. Needless to say it’s very important to look after it. Having a low work ethic and performance is something that I suffered from for years. Every day I was sluggish, bored, tired, and didn’t want to be a part of society I did not know how to work hard. However, since then, I’ve turned that around and I am a work machine. Every day I wake up with a new goal or prospect and do whatever it takes to accomplish it.
Why you need to optimize your body to work hard?
It’s important to be energized all day long while working, and it’s very important to be mentally strong all day. If you aren’t, then it will lead to your work deuterating and your mental health along with it.
You don’t know me but believe me I have suffered from both of these problems. This day a few years ago I was sitting in my bedroom scrolling on Instagram and being isolated. This lead to me having a very bad headspace and it also took a toll on my school life. I was getting bad grades every day. This is not something that you need to deal with if you are running a business.
How to optimize your body for maximum performance
Eating healthy is one of the most important points of this list. So, listen up. Nothing affects your body’s physical performance more than what you put into it.
If you are used to eating junk food, such as takeaways, then your body is already under extra strain. Many people miss out on vital vitamins and minerals during the day. These little macros boost your body more than you good imagine.
The big question is, what foods are beneficial for your body? Well, there are a lot, so to make this quick and easy, you need to eat whole foods. These are foods that are not processed, such as potatoes, fruits, vegetables, rice, and more.
If you give a healthy diet a chance for a few days, then you are practically guaranteed to notice a boost in your energy levels. It will also affect more than just your energy levels. It will help increase skin clarity, concentration, and even your mental health. This is a huge factor that will help you work hard every day.

Writing stuff down
You’ve probably heard people saying write stuff down before, and you should. This is certainly a big plus for your mental health. I am going to use myself as an example.
I run my own website and I do it for a living. There is a lot of different things I must deal with during the day. All these problems and solutions are in my head. Not only are they easy to forget but they can also be very straining on my brain. After a while I feel very overwhelmed and all of my hard work starts to go down the drain.
After I write something down it leaves my brain, and I can then move onto the next problem or solution.
This will also help you to create a more direct approach to things. If you have created a plan and written it down, you then have a step-by-step guide right in front of you. This gives you the ability to focus on one solution at a time.
If you don’t write things down, your head will turn into a battlefield. Trust me, give it a go.
This point can also fall under nutrition, and it is very important in helping you to work hard every day. Being sufficiently hydrated affects your body in more than one way.
Here’s what will happen if you don’t hydrate yourself.
Firstly, you will lose concentration. The very thing you clicked on this article to try and improve.
Secondly you will start to get headaches or migraines. We all know how annoying a headache can be. Personally, I always get a headache after drinking coffee. This is because coffee has ingredients that actually dehydrate you. Unfortunately, I love coffee. So, how I attack this problem is by drinking a pint of water instantly after my morning coffee, this allows me to work hard during the day.
Just like having a healthy diet, if you give this a chance and put some effort into staying hydrated, you will notice a difference. Not only will any headaches be eradicated, but you will also just feel healthy and overall better.
Finding the motivation to get up and carry on isn’t always easy, and it’s even more difficult if there is something negative going on in your life. However, you being motivated is the reason why you will go on and work hard every day.
The first thing you need to do is decide what you want to achieve. This can be anything you like. Whether it’s just getting up earlier, starting your own business, or losing weight.
Once you decide your goal, write it down and create a plan like we talked about earlier.
