How long should you sleep?

The actual amount of time depends on your body’s needs, but your goal is to wake up feeling refreshed. While you’re sleeping, your body is doing the essential maintenance required. 

Your cells are repairing, your brain is processing information and your sympathetic nervous system is relaxing.

When you shortchange your sleep, you shortchange yourself.

If you enjoy waking up early, try adjusting your schedule to go to bed earlier. 

If you want to stay up late, start allowing yourself to sleep in.

Take lots of breaks

Take lots of breaks

It’s easy to forget about what’s best for your brain when you’re battling a deadline. 

You might think pushing through is what you need to do, but a 2011 University of Illinois study found focusing too long on a task actually decreases productivity.

Doing something as simple as taking a quick walk can increase your creativity and energy. .

The Pomodoro technique has individuals taking breaks starting every 25 minutes, but other methods could have you working for a full 90 minutes. The key is to find what works best for you.

Do nothing

Do nothing

It’s important to take time to get quiet each day.

Meditation can be an effective way to rest your mind, while increasing your creativity and focus. It can also help lower your stress and reduce negative emotions.

Also, it might be helpful to start with only a couple minutes at a time and then increase the amount as you get more used to doing it.

If you’ve been under the pressure of constantly trying to do more, let me encourage you to try doing less. 

The key to finding the ideas your business needs could be as simple as taking the time to take care of yourself.

Laugh

Laugh

Several years ago, the WHO named “stress” as the “The Health Epidemic of the 21st Century”. Since then, the pandemic has increased the amount of stress individuals are feeling at work and home.

One way to help combat stress is through laughter.

When you laugh, your body releases endorphins that reduce stress and improve your mood.

Studies have also shown that laughing can help reduce blood pressure.Each day, try to seek out ways to laugh more. 

It only takes a few minutes to watch a quick video or chat with a funny friend, and you’ll start to feel the benefits immediately.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
