How Early Birds & Night Owls Tap into Productivity Differently!

They say that most people have more energy and focus in the morning. For some that may be absolutely true! But for others, you may be peering through at the text, bleary-eyed, wondering… “what in the world are they talking about.” Some of us actually do feel more productive later in the day. A very small group of us are actually true night owls, in that, if we were going to pen the great American novel, we’d hop to it at 9 pm and go all night long. The truth is that most of us land somewhere in the middle, so here’s what you can do to make sure you make the most out of your body’s natural schedule when it comes to tapping into productivity.

If you find yourself to be more of a night owl when it comes to productivity, then being aware is the first step to maximizing your productivity. In order to get a few more things done mid-morning, you may want to set more than one alarm. Did you know that 80 percent of us don’t hop out of bed easily? That’s right! You’re not alone, friend who hits the snooze button! Note, this is not an article about how to wake up earlier, it’s an article about how to maximize your productivity based on when you have the most energy and focus!

If you feel more energized later in the day, then choose a mildly early wake-up time, and set those two alarms. You don’t need to rise with the roosters. Start that wonderful morning routine that you love, and even throw in a few push-ups, arm circles, and easy jumping jacks when you get out of bed! This will get your blood flowing, make you start to feel more alert, and jump-start your endorphins. Who doesn’t want to feel positivity and hopefulness first thing in the morning! You may want to consider tackling your most difficult task around 11am. If you do it well, you can celebrate that feeling of accomplishment as the day continues on. It’s much like a snowball of productivity. When we feel good and satisfied with what we have achieved, we actually want to achieve more. We’ve shown ourselves that “we can do it!”

If you are a true morning person, we’re talking about natural risers who wake before the sun, then you really do need to make sure you are getting enough of those restful and rejuvenating zzz’s. Try for over 7 hours which is what most adults need in order to properly refuel. You might have a ton of energy early on, but the trick to maximizing productivity throughout the day is to make it last. Get your most critical projects done at a time when you feel most energetic. So early birds, go on and conquer the day straight away, but do incorporate some methods to stay calm and dial it back a little bit. If you go all out with those lofty goals you may crash later on. So, after you have checked off a few things you want to do, be sure to give yourself an enjoyable self-care-based break. Eat a favorite mid-morning snack or treat yourself to a yoga session.

Regardless of whether you are the early bird, the night owl, or some delightful creature in between, make sure that you stay nourished, and mindful throughout the day. It’s up to you to make it productive, but also, fulfilling, uplifting, and beautiful!

Choose your method.

10 Ways to Simplify Your Life

10 Ways to Simplify Your Life

You know we love the simple things here at Fittbe. So, we’ve come up with a quick list for you of ways to simplify your life. When you really make these a priority, you’ll be amazed at how much head space you free up for fun and enriching things that you love, like Hygge coziness, cooking and baking, barre and pilates, painting? Whatever those passions may be!

 

Declutter paper. Take it online you guys!

Set reminders in your phone or on your computer for things you know you need to remember. Set your bills on autopay and keep a spreadsheet of them. Then, unsubscribe from receiving notifications by mail. All those mailers do is create clutter in your home, and eventually fill your recycle bin. When I do get something I need in paper form, I usually snap a pic of it and keep it in one secure folder. Then, I make sure to audit this folder often!

 

Keep up your fitness and health.

 

Workout at least 3 times a week! Balance with different types of exercise, or an all in one balanced program like Pilates or Barre. Remind yourself that you are the type of person who enjoys exercise and healthy behaviors. Affirmations are so powerful, and doing so will help you to form great habits that will support you in a big way!

 

Put yourself first. We all know that term “you can’t pour from an empty cup,” but do we really put it into action?

 

You guys… as my sister always says… “we must!” take care of yourself first because that frees you up to attend to others. This has to be done in a “guilt free” way. Really look after yourself. Don’t skip meals, go with your gut, if you feel to busy, turn down some invitations or engagements. It is ALL ok!

 

Do an hour of tidying a day.

 

When you tidy up, you immediately feel a great feeling of productivity. Turn on some music you love while you do it and enjoy making your space somewhere you love to dwell!

 

Clothes.

Wear (and keep) clothes that fit well and make you feel great! Just because it may have value, doesn’t mean it has value to you right now.

 

Set a morning routine that you look forward to.

 

This morning routine might include a hot shower, a steaming cup of coffee, luxurious stretching. Maybe even getting up a half hour earlier so you have some quiet time to enjoy yourself

 

Declutter your mind.

 

If it’s not actionable and important for the present, let it go, let it go, let it go!

 

Enjoy the now.

 

There’s never been a better time to bring your attention to what is right in front of you! Focus on your senses. See the beauty around you.

 

Foster Good Relationships!

 

Put time into good relationships and notice how they come back to you. Don’t put time into unproductive, unfulfilling or negative relationships. Remember, number 3. Look after yourself.

 

Make time for your hobbies.

 

If you need too set an alarm to make sure you spend time on your hobby, do it! If you want to practice piano because you haven’t since you were 15, do it! If you want to learn to play a sport, or a game, go for it. Hobbies are important for fueling your creativity and happiness.

 

We hope you try out these simplifying ideas!  Be sure to follow along with Fittbe on Instagram and Pinterest! And if you don’t have your apps yet, you can download Fittbe Pilates here, and Fittbe Barre here. Looking for something a little slower? Opt for Fittbe Yogalates!

Good posture looks great and feels great. It enhances that balanced body and is habit-forming! 

Keep your spine tall

Keep your spine tall when you are sitting and standing as well. When you slouch, you really put strain on your back, and you throw the balance of your body out of wack!

Work your Core and Abs

Your core is more than your abs. It’s the full array of wrap around muscles supporting your back. Having strong abdominals and a strong core is vital for great posture and preventing back pain too!

Align your ears with your shoulders

Make sure your head isn’t reaching forward. This is awful for your neck, and it looks poor too. Instead, make sure you align your ears with your shoulders. Keep your head up. Always!

Select a Firm Mattress

Choose a firm mattress that won’t have you sinking in! If you’re a napper, try napping on something more firm than an easy chair!

5 Habits of Successful Wellness Entrepreneurs

5 Habits of Successful Wellness Entrepreneurs

The habits of Successful wellness entrepreneurs

Ready to embrace your own success story!? Here are some qualities that wellness entrepreneurs share! 

  • They are authentic and their authenticity shines through in their brand 

There’s a fine line between self promotion and gracefully infusing your wellness business with your own style, tastes, and personality. Great wellness entrepreneurs are forward facing, but their tone is genuine. They allow you to get to know them and therefore develop trust and comfort. You have to be able to trust the personality behind the brand, so be brave, and put your best face forward. 

  • They give first!

If you want someone to purchase your product, or program, we think you need to spend some time giving. The best wellness entrepreneurs use social media to offer advice and guidance. Imagine a feed full of calls to action like “buy, buy, buy.” It’s an immediate turn off. So, as you cultivate audiences, give them something they can enjoy or learn from. 

  • They ask questions

Have you ever been at a dinner party and it seems like a one sided show? Of course you have – we all have… The most interesting people are inquisitive and interested. They ask questions and they genuinely want to hear the answer. Good wellness entrepreneurs share the same quality. They ask their communities about what their concerns are, and they find a way to help!

 

  • They are always growing

Opportunity is everywhere, and successful wellness entrepreneurs know it! They see opportunity all around. They don’t mimic, but they are inspired by the good work of others. They are supporters and cheerleaders and they are always pushing themselves further with fresh ideas and innovative solutions.

  • They Believe in Themselves

As a wellness entrepreneur, belief is 9 tenths of the law! There are always going to challenging moments. Really, really challenging moments. As a  wellness entrepreneur, you’ll have to get over the setbacks quickly and keep moving forward. If you exhaust an option, find another. At the end of the day, a good wellness entrepreneur has belief in the value they provide, and the uniqueness and valued offering they bring to the world!
