3. Believe in Yourself
“In work, it’s important to remember that the body achieves what the mind believes. Say it to yourself the next time you think you can’t do something. It works.”
By day, Leah Simmons is a Pilates instructor and mom to her 6-year-old son; by night, she is a popular DJ known as The Dollhouse.
She spends half her time in Sydney and the other half in Bali with her fiancé. With such a busy schedule, Leah knows how important it is to take care of your health.
She credits her active lifestyle for keeping her mental health in check too. It’s her own fusion of wisdom and workout advice that has accrued Simmons a loyal online following of over 38,600 people who seek advice and inspiration.
4. Meditation Is the Key to Happiness
“Since I have so much travel in my life, it’s really important to me that my mornings are stress-free. Engineering them correctly always puts me in the right mind-set for the rest of the day.
I have found that a 20-minute meditation every morning has had enormous positive impact on my daily mood and interactions with other people.”
5. Focus on One Task at a Time
“In my life, I don’t use the ‘one day at a time’ mantra: I say ‘one task at a time.’ With a 2-year-old and an 8-week-old, two dogs, a husband, a home, and a business, I can get super overwhelmed. But I have learned to focus on one thing, check it off my list, and then keep it moving on to the next.”
