10 Things You Can Do To Make The Most of Your Morning

The morning should be a productive time, joyous and an important part of the day to make you become a better person. The morning is a vital part of the day. To make your mornings more inspiring and worthwhile, perhaps you have to consider some things you need to do to get the best out of it.

1.Start early

To get the best out of your mornings, it is best to start early. This means making the most of your previous evening and going to bed early. Resting well offers you more energy, productivity and clarity. You are also less stressed and less irritable.

2. Know and practice what triggers your most creative state

You cannot get the most out of your mornings if you really are not familiar with yourself. You have to know what makes your morning rituals easier to accomplish. This could mean what time you need to wake up and what position will set your creativity into motion.

Do you need to set your alarm clock or turn it off? Or do you need to set your easel, I-pod or running clothes next to your bed, or is it simply listening to a particular song? Find what will get your day in a perfect mode.

3. Imagine the perfect morning

Many people may not know this, but imagining how perfect your morning will be like tends to excite your senses and offers you the intensity to reach your goals for the morning.

So have a clear picture of how you want your morning to be like. Will you spend it having a hearty meal, taking a jog, reading a book, engaging with other family members or having a period of solitude?

4. Exercise

According to studies, people who engage in regular exercise are calmer, happier and better equipped to deal with the stress or anything the day throws at them. Integrating an exercise into your morning will boost your productivity and get you in the right mood for the day. It doesn’t have to be an intense physical activity, perhaps biking or taking a walk around your neighborhood or taking some yoga will be what you need to get your day going in the right direction.

5. Get through a plan

Have a morning schedule that is well mapped out to help you direct your energy positively. Have a detailed plan that has a time frame for getting your important morning tasks accomplished.

6. Prioritize

It is better not to crowd your morning with so many activities, but rather stock it with what is most important. This means prioritizing, and most times the arduous tasks may be what get your creativity going. Many successful people call this eating the frog first.

7. Manage your energy and time

Most times it is not simply about managing your time but managing your energy as well. Track what you do with your time and energy in the mornings. Make sure you are getting a return for the use of your time and energy. If what is unnecessary seems to envelope you and leaves you fatigue before the day begins, try rescheduling it for a latter part of the day.

 8. Eat right

Make sure you have a decent meal in the morning. This could mean eating healthy and avoiding fatty meals that would quickly burn out and set you up for a fatigued day. So eat right; try eating a diet consisting of proteins, carbs and fiber. Eat enough and make sure your food sets you up for the perfect day.

9. Dress well

Dressing right keeps you in a positive state to meet your day. It adds to your self-esteem and builds your confidence along the way.

10. Build a habit

Make sure what applies successfully for you should be repeated daily. It takes effort to build a habit and stay consistent with it. Yet the effort is worth it if you can keep up with it.

How to Use Travel Time Effectively

How to Use Travel Time Effectively

Most of us associate travel and time with what we’re going to do one we get to our destination. Planning and mapping out what to do once you arrive can certainly make for a more pleasurable vacation, but there are things you can do while you are on your way that can make it even better.

Sure, you can plan for the things you’re going to do on your vacation while you are travelling en route – but what about making use of that time for other things that you don’t usually do when you’re at home? You don’t need to have your gadgets with you to do it, and you can really connect with yourself if you take the time to manage your life while heading towards your vacation destination.

Here are some great tips to help you with your time management while you travel, some of which are more conventional than others. Nonetheless, you can find out what works best for you and apply them accordingly depending on when and how you are travelling.

1. Take Your Time Getting There

As I write this, I’m on a flight to San Francisco. Flying is the fastest way to get from place to place, and for many people it’s really the only way to travel.

But I’ve often taken the train or ferry on trips so that I have extra time without distraction to get more done. I’m not worrying about navigation or lack of space to do what I want to do. Instead I’m able to focus on getting stuff done during the time I’ve got without feeling rushed. For example, when I took the train from Vancouver to Portland, it was an eight hour trip and I managed to get a ton of writing done and closed a lot of open loops. It also was less expensive than flying, which was a bonus.

Sometimes taking the long way to get somewhere on vacation can be the best thing for you to get somewhere with your life.

2. Go Gadget-Free

This is going to be a tough one for a lot of you. But why do you need to bring your gadgets with you when you go on vacation? It isn’t be a bad idea to leave all but one of them behind, and only pull out that one when you absolutely need to do so. In some countries, you’d be wise to be discreet with them anyway since flaunting them in front of those that are less fortunate than you isn’t a good practice. While it may not seem like flaunting to you, in different cultures it can definitely come across that way.

If you can’t go gadget-free, then at least go Internet-free. If you use a task management app that requires syncing across your multiple devices to be effective, remember that if you only have the one device with you then it can be the “master device” for the time being and will store your data locally anyway. Just sync up when you get home.

3. Reflect and Prepare

Finally, going on any sort of excursion gives you the perfect opportunity to reflect on where you’ve been. The fact you have removed yourself from where you usually are can give you a perspective that you simply can’t get when you’re at home. You may want to journal your thoughts during this time – and by taking more time to get to your destination you’ll have more time to dig deeper into it.

After a period of reflection – however long that happens to be – you can then begin to not only prepare for the rest of your travels, you can prepare for the rest of what happens afterward. The reflection period is important, though. You need to really know where you’ve been in order to properly look at where you want to be. Time away from things gives you that chance.

Conclusion

Traveling isn’t always about where you’re going and how quickly you can get there. In fact, it’s rarely about that at all.

More often it’s where you’re at in your head that will dictate how much you benefit from traveling. So don’t just go somewhere fast. Instead, take your time on the way there and take the time to connect with not only where you are but who are while you’re there.

If you do that, you’ll have a better chance to be who you want to be when you leave.
