Social Jetlag

Social Jetlag

Just like normal jetlag, we all experience social jetlag. Weekends and holidays result in partying, staying up, or eating and drinking at odd hours.

One needs to keep up the body schedule in order, waking up in the morning at a regular time, while keeping decreasing stimulation the night before, to provide proper rest to the mind and body.

Key Ideas

The Time You Eat

When we think of our diet, our focus is mostly on eating right, cutting down on processed food, and consuming organic produce.

What we normally don’t think about is when the eating activity is done, and eating at the right time, when our bodies expect it, is the key to good health.

Body Clocks and Cycles

Everything that we check in our bodies like blood pressure and heart rate, has a circadian rhythm.

Our round-the-clock lifestyle, when light, food, and life is available and thriving 24 hours a day, leads to circadian disruption, resulting in many ailments like heart disease and diabetes.

Social Jetlag

Just like normal jetlag, we all experience social jetlag. Weekends and holidays result in partying, staying up, or eating and drinking at odd hours.

One needs to keep up the body schedule in order, waking up in the morning at a regular time, while keeping decreasing stimulation the night before, to provide proper rest to the mind and body.

Time-Restricted Eating

.. is a way to balance your circadian rhythm. You eat only within a 10-hour window, and then only the next day after you get adequate sleep. Do not eat anything for three hours before going to bed. You can drink water.

Even if you fail a few days, just get back on track. This is a great way to improve glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity and has other benefits like weight loss, and lower blood pressure.

Learning a new skill

Wanting to learn something new comes from the curious part of us. But then we have to put in the work. Many feel discouraged during this early learning period which may lead to soon giving up.

Break the skill down

Decide what you want to learn, then break it down into smaller, manageable pieces. Identify the tools and skills behind each step.

For example, if you want to bake your own bread, the pieces would be making dough, letting it rise, kneading it, shaping it and putting it into a pan, and then baking it in the oven.

Learn enough

Get three to five resources about what you're trying to learn, be it a book or a YouTube video. Set a limit on the number of resources to prevent you from procrastinating.
Then jump in and do it.

4 questions for your to-do list
  1. Can I eliminate this task? Anything that we say no to today creates more time for us tomorrow.
  2. If I can’t eliminate this task, can I automate it? Online bill paying is one example.
  3. Can it be delegated, or can I teach someone else how to do this? We can find ourselves more resistant about delegating duties at work.
  4. Should I do this task now, or can I do it later? This strategy is called  “procrastinate on purpose.

What puts an audience off
  • We indicate that we are feeling threatened when we take a step back or we show any sign of a closed body language.
  • Crossing our arms also shows nervousness and it puts our audience in a defensive mode.
  • Your end up showing that you feel superior to the rest of the room if you tilt your head backward.
Match your gestures to your message

Match your gestures to your words.
We are visual creatures, and any movement used in the right way in this direction will spark the attention of your audience. Just try not to abuse this rule.
