4 Simple Tricks for All Day Energy

By Tasha | Uncategorized

Having Trouble Staying Alert?

Stay Awake

 

It happens to the best of us. Everyday around the same time, we fall into a slump. Some of you might wake up tired! That sounds crazy right? You sleep all night and then wake up thinking you’ll be alert and ready to take on the day. 

Do you run out of steam midday? 

I have put together 4 Simple Tricks for All Day Energy! 

Problem 1: What’s going on in your bedroom? I’m not talking about anything kinky. Studies have shown that a large percentage of people spend their time before falling asleep in bed on social networks, and some say the last thing they do before closing their eyes is check for texts. That’s a huge NO NO! The bright lights from gadgets may stimulate brain activity and reduce melatonin levels, which may make it difficult to both fall asleep and perk up the next day. 

Solution: Make your bed a NO GADGET ZONE! Put your iPad, notebook, and phone chargers in another room. We all want to start the day fully powered, including your gadgets. 

Problem 2: Are you hydrated? Cut back on fruit juices, sodas, and also flavored water. All of these contain loads of sugar and can cause fatigue. 

Solution: You can never go wrong with water. Be sure you’re getting 8oz. a day or more. Not to favorable of water, add your own fruits i.e.: blackberries & mint, peaches & cinnamon, strawberries, just to name a few. 

Problem 3: Look around…. What do you see? Are you surrounded by clutter? Clutter has a negative impact on your productivity. 

Solution: Make it easy on yourself, clean up and get organized. It is good to put things away as you use them. Wash dishes as you cook. File papers back after you use them. This will save time and the clutter will not accumulate. 

Problem 4: How’s your health? How have you been feeling lately. Have you had your thyroid checked? 

Solution: If you’re dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s, have a great organized clutter free area, no stress, and get a full night’s rest, then it may be time to call your physician. Explain to them how you’re feeling and get the proper tests to make sure you’re in good health and living your best life. 

Do you have any energy boosting tricks? I’d love to hear how you stay energized all day.

Be Like Nike And Just Do It

Take A Day Off

Hi,

When was the last time you took a day off only for pleasure? 

There are so many people in your shoes. They can’t remember the last time they took a day off unless they were sick. Delegating tasks isn’t hard to do, and it isn’t as expensive as you may think. Let’s take Mary for an example. Mary is married with children and on a very tight budget. She wanted to go on a weekend trip but knew she couldn’t leave her business unattended. She decided to contact a virtual assistant. After discussing what she needed, like email management, phone call maintenance, and social media management, Mary hated that she had waited so long. Talking and explaining her needs weren’t as hard as she had thought. Mary didn’t have to micromanage anyone, she left it in the hands of the VA. Mary checked in here and there while she was away to make sure things were going smoothly. When Mary returned she was provided with an analytical report, and time assessment for the time spent on her projects. She was also provided with social media stats showing engagement and what was and was not working for her business that weekend. Not only was Mary in awe, she was rested, her family loved that she wasn’t working while away, and her business didn’t suffer. 

Do you ever get overwhelmed with “work”? 

I wonder if you ever find yourself thinking of work after work? 

Contracting with a Virtual Assistant is not hard, it will not break the bank, and it will free up your time to spend with loved ones, and also allow you time to focus on your product or skill. 

Can’t wait to serve you, 

Tasha

How To Outsource Effectively

By Tasha | Uncategorized

Need a Virtual Assistant, but don’t know how to get one? 

Outsourcing Your Dream

No one knows your business the way you know it. You know the vision, so therefore you know how you want it to look and work for you. With that being said, it’s okay to want to make sure that everything is always done the way you want it. 

In order for you to make sure your business is running just as you want, you’ll have to add project manager to your title. With your new title, you’re farther away from focusing on the profitable side of your business. 

Why Not Team Up With A Virtual Assistant?

Steps to Outsourcing effectively:

  • Create a guide of what you want done and share your vision. 
  • Set aside time for Skype, email, or some form of contact with your VA. This is just a quick check in to make sure things are flowing as scheduled.
  • Be sure to provide various ways of contact – in case of immediate questions. Social Media won’t wait. 
This is your business. Virtual Assistants are there for you and help to carry the load. 
Don’t stress, get out of the mess, call a VA! 
The end result is that you run a happy, stress free, profitable business.

Time Management Anyone Can Use

By Tasha | Uncategorized

Stress is Everywhere! 

Stress in the office

When stressed, your work will show it. Stress is an energy eater, and will stop production in its tracks. 

Minimizing stress will lead to better focus and increase time management. 

Let’s look at some steps to help you manage your time and keep you on top of your schedule. 

  1. Make to do lists (write down everything). When you can see what needs to be done, there’s a greater chance of getting them done and then scratch them off. Something as simple as ‘brush teeth’ should be written down. 
  2. Put a time on tasks. An example of this is: If you know it only takes 5 minutes to brush your teeth then you should write down 9:00-9:05 brush teeth, scratch it off. 
  3. No interruptions. Interruptions and distractions are of the devil. They come to kill time and productivity. Turn that cell on mute, write down a specific time to check email, and get to work. 
  4. Use “extra time” wisely. You’re probably saying, “I never have extra time.” Anytime there are a few extra minutes in your day where you find yourself waiting, that is when you can complete some of the smaller tasks on your list. Extra time may come in the form of: doctor visits (waiting room), sitting in traffic (remember to lock your doors), or even at the salon or barber shop. 
If you follow me on Facebook, you know that every Sunday I tell you to grab that “to-do list” and get to planning. 
I hope today’s article has been of help to you. I look forward to helping you and your business with your time management skills and to do lists.
Serving in Excellence,
