It’s bitter-sweet here in NY to say goodbye to summer because Fashion Week begins, and that’s when the real fun starts in the city.
Now that we are all back to our normal lives, I decided to post this 1-minute mind hacks to try RN to get you through fall, winter and beyond.
Turn off your cell phones before bedtime
Arianna Huffington writes in her new book, The Sleep Revolution, that a big part of the sleep problem so many people have centers on and around the increased use of brightly lit screens at night — smartphones, tablets, and laptops — that keep our eyes and brains on high alert. Huffington says this makes it difficult to unwind and transition into a peaceful state of rest and slumber we need to be productive during the day.
Arianna is a serious sleep activist ever since collapsing from sleep deprivation and exhaustion nearly a decade ago.
Face your fears head on in full throttle
According to Oprah Winfrey, who is a self-admitting procrastinator, says to take a mindful minute every morning in quiet solitude to process what may be holding you back at the core of your humanity. By identifying, confronting, and conquering what you fear the most (which is a feeling, and we have the power to change it), the fear will disappear, and you’ll be able to move on to your next goal.
Simplify by reducing your choices to make a decision
Mark Zuckerberg says that decision-making over load is not good for the brain. Yeah, this is coming from a guy who does not believe in outfit planning as he wears the same outfit every day., which consists of jeans, sneakers, and a gray t-shirt. However, there is a method to his madness. He does this on purpose, so he has one less decision to make in the morning. Zuckerberg is known for eliminating unnecessary choices from his daily routine to help reduce “decision fatigue,” which is linked to impulsiveness and indecisiveness.
When asked about his wardrobe in 2014, he told the audience: “I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.”
If you’re bogged down by too many unnecessary choices in a day, reducing them helps you to unclutter your mind and focus on the bigger decisions that are truly important.
Maybe that’s the secret to Oprah and Mark becoming billionaires 🤔
