Good Habits for a great day

Waking up shouldn't be a pain
The first step to a life changing start should begin without snoozing your alarm clock. The urge to get up and kick start the day should be the only stimulus for you. If you are too lazy to move, try putting a terrible alarm clock in the next room. These days there are apps like video alarm clock that make sure you wake up on time. Now all you need to do is ensure you don't go back to sleep after performing the toughest task of waking up.

Breakfast Is a Must
Many people skip breakfasts. Do remember, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Before starting your day, you need to have a good meal. Even if you skip lunch, that isn't an issue. Try making cereal omelette, bread and jam or some porridge and fruits. This is easy and cheap at the same time.

Office hours needs to as per productivity
Many offices have regulations for 8.5 hours work shift, if you want to perform well, choose an office where you have flexible timing. Not everyone can work between 9am to 6pm. Some people perform well at 2pm to 10pm, while some can perform at 10 in the morning. So find out your time and talk to your boss. Your productivity is a boon for the company and if you aren't at a call centre or teaching, hours should be flexible to find the best in you.

Organize your day
Clutter ranks top amongst your performance disruptors. If you aren't getting proper kick to work, declutter your desk and day. There are issues that often clog our head preventing us from being committed. Get rid of all these. Set your morning priorities, day's priorities and after office schedules. These would help you to be more productive.

Your job should be alluring
You must have noticed that often the sweepers at public toilets laugh and singh while doing their job. Considering no job is low is the most important. Even if you are into a boring job with a horrendous boss, find other ways to stay chilled. The moment you start thinking your job as a difficult one, you are damned.

You should have a daily workout routine of your own. Initially you would feel tiring after day's work to hit the gym. Try working out in the morning. Make working out a habit. This would help you stay active throughout.

Sleep more
While waking up on time is a must, so is sleeping tight. Hit the bed at a fixed time. Read something before going to sleep and think of all good things. Let not bad and worrying thoughts spoil your sleep. Wake up to a new you. more

Dear Swapnil, Thanks for highlighting and reminding the ideal parameters for leading a healthy life. But what should be the corrected parameters for people living in a metro like Delhi/NCR? Spending 3/4 hours by travelling 40 to 80 Kms on crowded and polluted roads of East-Delhi-Gurgaon or West-Delhi-Noida Sector-62? Still working Senior Citizens who are virtually thrown out of ques while boarding Metro by lakhs of under- 35 indisciplined , so called future citizens of this country? Buying artificially coloured fruits,vegetables and pulses?or buying polluted vegetables grown in Yamuna waters from road-sides of NH-24, or grown in Polluted Hindon waters from Ghaziabad? Walking in environments(Anand Vihar,Punjabi Bagh, R.K.Puram) where RSPMs are 19 times more than the permissible norms? Happily working in Private Limited Companies under constant vigilant eyes of CCD cameras, reporting attendance through computer-recorded Bio-Metric attendance systems in the unhealthy basements where there is scarce ventilation, where medical leaves are absent from their dictionaries? ....... Thanks. more
