Ever wondered how to get the most out of your day. Well, it all starts with your mornings, yes thats right the first 2 – 3 hours of your day can affect how productive you are for the rest for the next 8 – 12 hours.
I am fairly interested in becoming as productive as possible. Getting the most amount of work done in the least amount of time to allow me to spend time with my family and friends on weekends.
Recently Travis Bradberry posted an article on qz.com that explains the best morning routine in one of the finest ways I have read.
Researchers at the University of Nottingham recently published findings from their exploration of 83 separate studies on energy and self-control. What they found will change the way you start your day.
The researchers found that self-control and energy are not only intricately linked but also finite, daily resources that tire much like a muscle. Even though we don’t always realize it, as the day goes on, we have increased difficulty exerting self-control and focusing on our work. As self-control wears out, we feel tired and find tasks to be more difficult and our mood sours.
This exhaustion of self-control kills your productivity, and it makes the morning hours, when self-control is highest, the most important hours of the day.
But the trick isn’t just to spend your morning hours working; it’s to do the right things in the morning that will make your energy and self-control last as long as possible.
