We all wish we could just add on a few more hours to the day right? Want to know how to get more things done during the day? If you are like me, then I always feel like my plate is full. Meaning, I never seen to have enough hours in the day. Running around in the am making breakfast, getting dressed, and quickly escape out of the door on time is how I lived for years.
How to get more things done during the day?
I have 3 ways to maximize your day. By implementing them, I was able to see almost instant results. I was able to gain knowledge, open up my chakras, and find more time for me. This is deep work. When do we have time for our personal needs? The truth is, we don't, we have to find it ourselves. If we wait until, next week, next month, next year, then we will never find the time. I know that modern day life is fast, but we have to find a way to use our time so that we benefit from it, not just our employer while we are at our 9-5 job. When finding time for me during the day, I not only felt in control, I actually looked forward to my new commitments. I noticed an improvement in my anxiety and better sleep. I personally used these three tips for years. The amazing thing is that it ends with us. We are taking back the power of our day.
What are 3 ways to maximize your day?
1. Incorporate movement
Do you currently move your body on a regular basis? According to Harvard Health, "Regular aerobic exercise can reduce anxiety by making your brain’s “fight or flight” system less reactive. When anxious people are exposed to physiological changes they fear, such as a rapid heartbeat, through regular aerobic exercise, they can develop a tolerance for such symptoms." I find time to incorporate movement into my day by doing 10-15 minutes of stretching in the morning. I stretch on the floor, roll on my foam roller, and practice deep breathing techniques.
2. Incorporate learning
You know, they say it's important to learn at least one new thing a day. This is so crucial for expanding our mind. When we learn new things, it keeps our brain active and new neural channels develop. Use your time in the car while driving to work, use your lunch break and listen to a podcast. Listening to an audiobook is also a tool.
3. Incorporate relaxation
Relaxation is crucial. On your lunch break (we all have to eat), read a book or meditation. John Hopkins University found that general mindfulness meditation programs helped ease psychological symptoms of depression, anxiety, and pain related to stress. Not only can books transport your mind to other places, it can even realize your body by lowering your heart rate.
Now if you could incorporate these into your day, would you? For the full guide head over to the freebies tab up at the top of the page. The freebie page was created by Christina; a mindset, manifestation coach who left her full time job as a dental hygienist to pursue her dream.
