8 Things Every Person Should Do Before 8 A.M. – Benjamin Hardy
Do you always wake up tired and groggy? Do you always feel unmotivated and sick of the day even before it started? Do you dread the thought of waking up and preparing for work every morning? If so, I have a few questions to ask you.
Do you have a ritual every morning? Do you feel energised as you prepare for work? If your answer is no, then it is about time you start adopting rituals.
So, what are rituals? Rituals are basically daily practices that a person does every single day which begins from the moment they wake up. It can be super simple like having a shower, do some light exercises/stretching and having a hearty breakfast. It is a set of tasks that you do to keep you moving and motivated. It calms your mind and prepares it to tackle the day ahead. It has to be something that is familiar to you and does not require much mental effort. If you have problems thinking about what should be included in a ritual, you can read this article as it suggests certain activities that you can adopt and include into your daily ritual.
For me, I’ve adopted to have cold showers in the morning and darn is it refreshing!
Get Sh*t Done – Jasky Singh
The last time I remember being super productive is when I was editing a video a few months back and I’ve been trying to find ways to relive those moments of intense productivity. If you’re like me, you’ll be searching and trying out countless techniques that promise high productivity but to no avail. However, when I read this article just this week, it amazes me how a simple change in mindset can increase productivity.
I’m sure all of us tried the ‘removal of distractions’ method where we all chuck our phones, computer and any other forms of distractions from our working space. However, we retrieve those distractions back countless times. Why? It is because the distractions are easily accessible. However, imagine you’re on a plane to some far away land and with all your gadgets unable to function with only work left accessible, what would you do? You would do the work unless you’re able to withstand boredom. Therefore, this article introduces just that. A change in mindset from on land to on the plane.
I will adopt this technique and share with you guys my experiences.
How to Have More Ideas – Ben Noble
All of us experience moments of mental-block where we can’t seem to get new ideas for a project or a schoolwork that we’re working on. I experience that too. However, this article is here to save all of us from ever experiencing that block ever again. It is simple, just think and brainstorm of 10 new ideas every day even if it is a horrible one.
I am definitely adopting this on top of my all day every day writing.
