Being a internal sportsperson, I am also well-versed in the art and science of long-playing. More than that, I’ve developed an unhealthy love for playing games of any kind. I’m something of a night owl (around 3 in the morning most days), so it’s no surprise that my favourite past time is to have fun before bed. Especially when there are activities involved, such as card games or board games, it’s always good to have something to do. And, as a member of the internal sports family myself, I know how important it is to have time to ourselves. In order to keep my energy up, focus and be productive all day long, I’ve developed a few tips that can help you get more done during your off hours and save you plenty of time on pickups nights.
Games are a great way to pass the time before bed. Whether you’re looking for a quick stress-relieving activity or something completely different, gaming is the perfect way to clear your mind and get your creative juices flowing. Whether you’re an avid card player, a strategy game fan, a board game expert, or an entrepreneurial Types I player, there are plenty of games that can be used to clear your mind and get you moving. Even if you have an hour to kill during the day, it’s still a great idea to have a few minutes to play. Whatever you choose, it’s a great way to clear your mind and get ready for bed.
Write Something Different
With so many options out there when it comes to where to focus your energy and what type of game to play, it can be hard to know which games are right for you. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help you make this selection easier. First, make a list of the things that focus your energy and move your mind. It’s important to have this list written down so you can refer to it when needed. Then, sit down for a short 15-20 minute meditative exercise to help yourself focus. This can be at home or on the couch, and you can enjoy the peace and quiet of your couch while you do it.
Learn a New Skill
Learning a new skill or finding a new way of doing things can be a great way to clear your mind and get moving. It can even be a way to improve your social ability. There are a number of different types of games that can help you learn new skills, such as airplane and ocean (flight) riding, card games, and even Suduko (the Kanji for “I”). These games can help you understand the movements and strategic uses of various animals and objects, as well as teach you various administrative skills. There are plenty of different types of games you can choose from, so you can find one that works best with your style of personality and preferences.
Staying alert is a key factor in any active lifestyle. It not only keeps your body hydrated, but it keeps your mind free from thoughts about the negative things that can be happening around you. It can also help with focus, as well as prevent and manage mood swings. If you’re able to stay alert all day, it’s less likely that you’ll fall into a routine that doesn’t work for you. It’s also been shown that people who are more alert are also more likely to achieve productivity gains. There are plenty of ways to stay alert all day, so whether you’re sitting at the computer, on the couch, on the train, in the park, or on the airplane, there are lots of ways to stay on your alert side all day long. Some people find they get a goodnight’s sleep while others sleep normally the next day. Either way, it takes a lot of work to stay alert, so it’s a good idea to put some time into it at least some nights.
Have a snack break
Sleeping for 8-12 hours every day can be very exhausting andeven stressful for the body. It’s no secret that we all have different needs during our off-hours, so it can be hard to know which time off you should take. The key here is finding a time that works best for you, while still being able to get a goodnight’s sleep. One way to do this is to make a list of the things you want to do that night. This will help you stay focused and on-task.
Get out of your comfort zone
Staying in the same routine you’ve been in for the past couple of days can lead to a difficult situation in the long run. For example, you may find that you’re getting more sleep during your off-hours compared to other times of the day, so you decide to continue with the same routine the next day. If this continues, your body may end up adapting to your new way of sleeping by stimulationizing all the receptors in your body. This can lead to increased heart rate and blood pressure, as well as increased risk of not getting a good night’s sleep. It’s best to break out of your comfort zone once in a while to see if there are any changes that can be made.
Ultimately, the best way to get more done during your off hours is to be active. Getting up and getting moving is the key to extending your energy and achieving focus and balance. Whether you’re a solo traveler or a traveling partner, there are ways to stay active and clear your mind. Whether you want to get something done at work or home, or stay active at school, there are plenty of ways to stay on your path to productivity.
