to great music or taking a walk.
And just remember baby steps I find it helps to just make one small change at a time.
I use an app called Woodland Alarm Clock. It wakes you up to the sound of birds. I love it. It gets louder gradually and sounds incredibly natural. I set it for the exact same time every day (9am is good for me). This will put your body in a rhythm.
Maybe check with your doctor to see if you struggle with depression or, if you aren't getting good quality sleep. There are medications and therapies for that. I had undiagnosed ADHD and since getting on medication I'm doing a lot better.
Sleep with a weighted blanket and use essential oils like lavender to help you sleep. In the morning, I find frankincense energizing and use it as part of my morning routine.
Before you go to bed, set up your office area to work. Whatever you need. I like to sit on an exercise ball, and again, that essential oils…they help me get in the mood to write or get boring computer work done. Maybe you have a bluetooth speaker you use or find your favorite pen. Whatever.
Also. Put on your shoes. Don't wear your pajamas all day. Sounds nice but I find it sabotages my productivity.
For me for instance I wake up early to be able to read the morning news in order to make advantage of it and trade stocks accordingly during the morning. Some times I miss the morning wake up, but the days that I feel like I don't want to wake up I just remind myself that I am doing to trade stocks. That if I don't wake up I won't be able to trade.
Maybe your reason is to make more time in the evening to do other things you want to do, so remind yourself of that every morning. That you are waking up so that you will get this and that, etc.
- What is the best lunch break?
- Is yoga harmful?
- What types of things do you do or say to motivate yourself to get started on a workout? That’s my biggest struggle!
- How do you prepare for an exercise in advance?
- What do you do for your exercises?
- What exercise is best if you’re just starting out?
- How do you treat the days that you miss your goals?
- How do you build up your workout knowledge ( what to do and how to do it )? Too many information makes procrastinating easier
- Do you do the same exercise every day or do you mix it up?
- How much exercise do you do in the morning? A short ten minutes to wake up the body or a full workout?
