If You Can Succeed in Managing Your Morning, Then Nothing Can Stop You From Succeeding in Life

If You Can Succeed in Managing Your Morning, Then Nothing Can Stop You From Succeeding in Life

Are you a person who keeps finding ways to kill time or wishes for less than 24 hours in a day? Then I guess this article is not for you! If, however, you’re a person who wishes you had more than 24 hours a day or wished that you were a mutant who could survive without sleeping, then this article is the right fit for you.

Life for a busy being starts at night, as opposed to the common belief that a day begins at sunrise.

  1. To organize and manage time effectively throughout the day, you must be able to manage the first few hours in the morning efficiently. Here’s the catch: for a well-managed morning you, have to plan during your last couple of hours awake at night.
  2. Plan your breakfast and take care to ensure that you have all the ingredients ready to cook.
  3. Discuss the following day with your spouse/partner and share your duties: i.e. who is cooking breakfast, who is packing lunches, who is getting children ready for school or dropping the baby at the creche, etc. so that everyone starts their morning without any arguments or time-wasting.
  4. Set aside all the clothes and accessories required by every member of the family for the next day, so that everyone can just grab them and get going without freaking out about misplaced items.
  5. Schedule every activity, from teeth-brushing and bathing to getting your car out of the garage. A solid to-do list and effective prioritization is a surefire stairway to success.
  6. If either of you have to do any work-related tasks in the morning, make it a point to keep your partner informed about it so that the other one can plan accordingly.
  7. Set your alarm to make sure you don’t miss a minute of your day, just in case your body clock fails to wake you!
  8. The last and the most important thing to do at night is to tuck your children in bed on time, and give your spouse a goodnight kiss to make sure you all wake up on time, fresh and rejuvenated.

Good morning! Hopefully you slept better after that nighttime planning!

Now your day is bright and ready for the real action to happen.

  1. The first thing to do in the morning is to turn off the alarm and not fall asleep again! Yes, it rings to wake you up and you have to do exactly that: waking up on time is the most important task of the day.
  2. Start with your routine, and aim to finish off your morning hygiene session in half an hour—including bathing. Make it a point not to read in loo unless you are using your smart phone or tablet to answer your email, and avoid that too if you have scheduled it for later in that to-do list you made the previous night.
  3. Monitor your time and stick to your planned task of either cooking the first meal of the day or getting your children ready. Scheduling is nothing but allotting every task a chunk of time, so try not to lag behind schedule as every lag would add up to a collective loss of time. Multitasking is good, but only if you can handle it effectively, and without stress.
  4. It’s your time baby, freshen up! Before getting dressed, wash your face and rinse off all traces of the morning’s stress. Good perfume will definitely revitalize your senses, so be sure to pick the right one. Dress up and feel good about yourself: love yourself and realize your worth.
  5. Relax and take about 10-15 minutes to finish your breakfast with a clear, unoccupied mind. This will go far in keeping you in a cheerful mood throughout the day.  Never skip breakfast or eat it standing on your toes or running around—when you can earn your bread, why not enjoy every bite of it?

Once you start your morning by managing time holistically, then there is nothing that can keep you from being happy and high-spirited throughout the day. You will be able to keep up with your plans, and remain productive all day long.

Are you feeling as though this is like preparing for a battlefield? You can stop wondering—morning hours are no less than getting ready for the war called “the office” and facing a boss who is all set to fire bullets of annoying facial expressions straight at heart for arriving at the office late.

Every human being deserves to feel good and calm, and both can be attained by never again fighting with yourself in the morning. By sticking to a schedule, you’ll finish your morning chores and reach the office on time, where you’ll get the chance to impress your boss each and every day.

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
