Brad Roemer knows a thing or two about stress, working his own small real estate agency and his side project of interior design. He also has kids and a wife to go home to, in which he places great importance in getting enough family time. How does one balance stress when it seems as though business overrides the rest of your life? There are a few ways to think about it, but one of them is inevitable: Roemer works out a little bit every single day. It may sound daunting at first, but he completely understands that the physical well-being is connected to your mental state of health.
He has become a morning person by default, waking up sometimes at the crack of dawn (5:00 AM in Oakland) to get ready for a long run in his neighbourhood and then lift some weights in the comfort of his own home. It doesn’t take much to get physical. A few weights, your own body and 30 minutes of cardio and you’re in for the long-haul. During the winter months, he notices a shift in his energy because of the lack of sun despite it being so-called sunny California. So what does he do to curb his deficiency in energy? He has a Seasonal Affective Disorder lamp that he makes sure to put on for at least 15 minutes every day when he’s working at his desk. This will give Brad Roemer the Vitamin-D that he isn’t receiving from the natural sunlight—boosting his energy levels and allowing him to keep on hustling through his work load and projects.
Brad Roemer has taught his associates and realtor managers to take advantage of what works best for them. The body tends to be more alert and concentrated in the morning, making it a better time to do writing tasks such as proposals or reports. During the afternoon, it’s best to do admin work when your body is on the low-down. Structure your time accordingly to the way your mind and body functions.
Although it may be overrated, Brad Roemer believes greatly in the power of sleep. When he sleeps between 8 to 10 hours, he notices a great shift in his sparked energy. He is quicker at getting the job done at work, and more efficient when it comes to leading meetings.
