Read on to find out Rhea’s Top 5 tips for living your best life!
1. Know who you are
“What are your core values? What makes you tick? What makes you happy?” said Rhea to Jennifer Hudson and her live studio audience. She stressed the importance of “taking the time to know who you are, what you like and what you don’t like,” adding, “The foundation of all relationships starts with you.”
2. Assess, prioritize, and plan
First, acknowledge everything you have to get done. “Assessing: when you think about every hat that you wear,” she said, whether it’s your parental duties, work duties, or anything else. “Write everything down, all the things you have to do.”
Next up, put everything in order of priority. “Prioritize: What needs to be done right now?”
And finally, get to work. “Planning: planning your work, working your plan,” said Rhea. “Handle all of those things in priority order… You’ll start noticing that burden lifting.”
“Your yesses are your yes. Your no’s are your no. People will treat you how you treat yourself,” she said. “Keep your word to yourself.
“You know if something is serving you or if something is kind of depleting you,” she continued. “We battle in our minds, we battle with guilt because of who it might be… At the end of the day, you have to set healthy boundaries. It’s okay to say no.”
4. Cultivate healthy friendships and relationships
“Relationships are classrooms. You don’t just all of a sudden fall in love and learn to communicate,” said Rhea. “Our friendships provide us that opportunity to speak up, or guess what, to confront, to challenge something.
“We all know what it’s like when people don’t have truth-tellers around them,” she said, adding that speaking up helps you build confidence.
