SIT BACK STRAIGHT! NO SLUGGISH POSITION.

Your posture sends a signal to your brain as to how active or lazy you feel.

So sit back straight while doing your work.

A good posture creates an active mind and an active mind creates a productive YOU!

EXERCISE AND GET MOVING

Yup, just a morning exercise is not enough!

Take 5 minutes of walking or stretching breaks in between your work.

Sitting for long hours can lead to back pain which is not healthy.

READ MORE BOOKS!

Books with better structures encourage us to think in sequence — the more we read, the more our brains are able to link cause and effect.

You’ll be surprised at how much focused you get. Losing yourself in a book is the ultimate relaxation.

MEDITATE!

And not just once a day. But at regular intervals. Mindfulness is a practice...So during your breaks or whenever you get the free time...go ahead practice some breathing exercises and focus on the rhythm of your breath.
