To get the max from your day, you have to learn how to self-manage, and that is notoriously a challenge for most of us. And there isn’t any cookie-cutter plan that everyone can follow because we’re all different.
What works for your co-worker won’t work for your neighbor and neither one of their plans won’t necessarily work for you. Why? Because we all have different energy levels to start with as well as different daily responsibilities and routines.
But one thing that we can all do to get the most out of our day is to improve our energy level which will improve our productivity. How can we do this? By tweaking our morning routine and our bedtime routine until we find what works the best.
The Morning Routine
If you don’t have a morning exercise routine now, then you should establish one. Start with some stretches and slowly work up the reps and time you exercise. Add some yoga into this new routine and if you already have an exercise routine, start adding some yoga in with it.
But before you start the exercise or the yoga, take a few minutes to meditate. Use this time to listen to music, read a book, pray, or whatever can help you ease into the day. During this quiet time, you can begin your yoga which will help you prepare for your exercises.
If you can get your exercise routine up to where you’re burning as much as 500 calories a day, you’ll lose one pound a week. Exercise will also help firm and tone your body too. But exercise and yoga alone aren’t enough. You’ll need to get your diet in shape too. The following schedule will get you at 3,500 calories a week loss.
Ending each day with 15 to 20 minutes meditation will help you relax and wind down for bedtime. The above is a suggested routine that you should arrange it so that it fits your personal schedule. Every week, add a different cardio and mix them up throughout the week. Always remember to stretch before and after exercising too as well having a day of rest every 2 or 3 days. This gives your body time to recover and rest.

Yoga and the sound of “Ommm” have long been associated. It is the sound you hear when you enter a yoga class. But does it have any true meaning? Some people call it “the sound of the universe”, but is that really what it is? Just like most spiritual things, “Ommmm” is something that easily […]
Yoga is an ancient spiritual science that offers the way to still the body’s restlessness and thoughts. It is believed that the natural turbulence of our body is what keeps us from really knowing ourselves and what we’re capable of. Because ordinarily, we direct our awareness and energies outward in regards to the world, relying […]
