Feeling too drained for physical activity after work? Set the alarm clock to ring an hour or more before the usual wakeup call. Set out for a jog, jump some rope or lift some weights. Whatever you choose to do, the idea is to get the blood pumping early and your body prepared for the day ahead. There is an inextricable link between body and mind; jolt your body into activity and the mind will soon follow.
Forbes states that studies show early risers are optimistic, agreeable, satisfied and conscientious. Perhaps it's the lack of stressful rushing before work that attributes to these positive traits. The morning also provides an opportunity for contemplation, writing down daily goals and introspective meditation to place your mind in a serene state to deflect the inevitable stresses of the coming day.
Imagine not having to participate in the nine to five parade each morning in the endless bumper-to-bumper traffic. Not only would you get to work earlier, the stress of navigating through a mass of vehicles would be thoroughly eliminated. Cruise quickly to work while the late risers still slumber.
Working in quiet solitude before any coworkers start jabbering and click-clacking at their keyboards is a productive way to begin work each morning. Collect your thoughts in a silent space, let the ideas flow and find yourself exceeding the amount of work you used to accomplish.
Taking care of business affairs earlier in the day grants you more time with family in the evening. Anyone who finds themselves crunched for time wants more of that precious time to spend with family. Achieving extra work in the morning will strengthen familial bonds with your children and husband or wife.
