The Perfect Day

The Perfect Day

How would you describe a perfect day? I think getting the best out of it HAPPILY.

Getting the best out of it = Its different for everyone + “The Happily Part”

LET’S DIVIDE THE DAY IN 16 hours, which is what is left once you subtract 8 hours of sleep. Now, let’s divide every 4 hours into 4 stages. And now we have 4 stages with random schedules.
So, in the next four stages, I will show you tips that I think work for having a perfect day, along with some habits that will help to get the tips accomplished.

STAGE 1 (6 am — 10 am)

A) Waking up

This part of the day is one of the most important ones. I think part of waking up defines the mood you’ll be having throughout your day.

TIPS:

  • Drink a glass of water right away: this will help you feel light and have an easy digestion.

  • Set up a nice alarm tone: The one you think will make waking up easier. 

  • Plan your day: Set priorities for your day.

B) Getting ready for your day & breakfast

TIPS:

  • Try getting ready for your day in a relaxed way. Your day should feel like the following graph.

Your day should start easy, reaching its highest point of activity at a certain point throughout the day, this will be different for everyone. Then it should return to a chiller mood as the day comes to an end.

STAGE 2 (10 am — 2 pm)

A) Focus Stage

This would be the part in which each person performs a different activity depending on their age, passions or hobbies.

TIPS:

  • Be Neat. I found that being neat is one of the best ways to get things accomplished. Too much stuff in different places creates distractions that can affect productivity.

Keep a list of tasks to do. This will help you keep track of pending tasks. When you finish a task, cross it out. You will feel motivated when you see how many tasks you've accomplished

  • FOCUS is the KEY to being productive. With focus we can improve the quality of our activities. Many people manage to concentrate while listening to a certain type of music. If you are one of these people try to be on the lookout if someone needs you.

  • Do not leave for tomorrow what you can do today. This is the key to productivity. If you can do a task it is smarter to do it at that specific moment than to wait and do it later. In the course of this wasted time, other tasks may arise and this would cause a stack of tasks, resulting in a domino effect.

STAGE 3 (2 pm — 6 pm)

A) Lunch

TIP:

B) Afternoon

During the afternoon some of us feel that our ability to focus diminishes.

Almost everyone experiences a mid-afternoon lull: a dip in energy levels, alertness, and concentration as part of your natural circadian rhythm, explains Michael Kerr, an international business speaker and author of “You Can’t Be Serious! Putting Humor to Work.”


“The timing, extent, and intensity of the afternoon lull varies from person to person, and although our lunch diet can affect it, the №1 influencer is how well you slept the night before,” he explains. Other factors, such as sitting for too long or spending too much time on the computer, can also contribute to a decline in energy.


And, perhaps one of the most surprising causes of afternoon fatigue is having too little work to do. “If you don’t have a clear plan of action and don’t set priorities for your day, and especially for the afternoon, it’s that much easier to lose steam and feel a dip in energy,” he says.

TIPS:

If you’ve got a flexible job or you work from home, the mid-afternoon slump is a great time to work out. Exercise is energizing, and when you return, you’ll likely be able to focus for another few hours. If you’re not able to do a “full-on workout,” taking 10 minutes to stretch, do some yoga, or walk around the office can help, too.
  • Eat a snack. this will help you keep your energies up. Try to avoid snacks that are too high on sugar. Nuts are a great example.

STAGE 4 (6 pm — 10 pm)

A) Relaxing Stage

I try to consider this stage as if it were free time. In it, we can take advantage of doing the things we like most, such as spending time with family, reading, exercising or simply watching digital content.

TIPS:

  • Read. Reading regularly can help make you smarter, and it can actually increase your brain power. Just like jogging exercises your cardiovascular system, reading regularly improves memory function by giving your brain a good work out. Reading also helps you relax before bedtime. 

  • Start planning for your next day. How we spend our time is a key strategic decision.  Make a list and order things you have to get done by priority.

  • Try to go to bed early. Going to sleep early will help you feel more rested for the next day and therefore help you do your tasks more happily and efficiently.

“Succesful people are masterful at managing their time and priorities, and to do that effectively you need to plan effectively ahead of time for the afternoon slump: getting a good night’s sleep, maintaining a fitness regime, and eating healthy will all help”.
