I have always metaphorically been referred to as an 'Owl' as I stay up all night. Nights are the most productive time of my whole day. Ever since I am able to recall, I don't have nights, but morning to sleep. It feels as if my brain remains suspended in a limbo throughout the day, and only post dusk does it start functioning normally. This has been my student-life motto. And maybe that's where most of your hostel-life relates too! :P
Blogging has lately, got me into lots of reading, after completing a yet another productive book, I conducted an experiment on the success mantra recommended from all, since times unknown. 'Being up at 6 am'. Something that felt like only few moments of shut eye.
The initial days were more than miserable, I have been to work with sleepy-eyes, swollen enough to be noticed. Alarm ran at 6, even though my sleep pattern remained nothing before 2 am. Days went unproductive initially. It was a huge transformation for my system. Only Determination and the Desire for much more from my day kept me going. Within a month's time I had successfully tuned my body and my schedule.
Opening the windows to the twilight hues of the dawning sun and the cool breeze. A perfectly calm start to a kick-ass day. Often I sit up in the garden skimming through the news, drafting the day's to-do list, designing tactics for a better work-ideas. Before the traffic sounds, I am done with small chores which weren't practical earlier. The morning time is when I stay completely aloof from all connections; it is my 'me-time'.
Reading biographies, success stories and struggles has always been my passion. There is a typical pattern I have noticed with the successful ones, so I read about some more of them and some more. I drew some common conventions which almost all pursued, apart from stirring themselves to early mornings.
Exercising : Energieses you and makes you flexible for the upcoming day.
Making your bed : Leads to better productivity throughout the day.
Healthy breakfast : Fuels your body to the demands of the day.
Catching up with news : It is important to know what's happening in the world around you.
Prioritizing your day : Establish your objectives for the day and work accordingly to achieve it.
In a summary. A well spent day is a well managed day. A bounteous day. Make sure each day of your life is worth to be reviewed in the future!!
