Fall and winter can be a dark, cold and depressing period. The temperature is dropping and the days are getting shorter fast. It may sound extreme, but I actually haven’t seen the sun in a while now, and it won’t get any better until after the new year has started. Moving to Norway has definitely forced me to implement some extra self-care and apartment hacks to make the dark and cold season feel warmer and brighter. I’m sure these tips will make the dark winter days less depressing, and even more enjoyable, for you as well, no matter where you live.
After an incredibly busy week, both at work as well as with regards to my personal projects, I decided it was time to share some of my productivity tips. At work I rocked three projects this week, all with a lot of features and tight deadlines. And after hours I’ve been blogging, promoting my blog, finding guest bloggers, coding my second app and following several e-courses. This is how I managed to complete all my todo’s and stay productive, even on days where I felt tired and just wanted to give up!
Sleep is one of the most important things in our lives. While we’re sleeping, our brain processes information from the past day. But that’s not the only reason sleep is good for us. It also has a positive impact on our creativity, focus and even our weight.
Unfortunately, we often don’t take sleeping seriously enough, or just fail to achieve a proper night’s sleep. During my college years I rarely had more than 6 hours of sleep and often had to pull all-nighters. My habits didn’t really improve after I graduated and a few months into my first job I started noticing the bad side effects of my unhealthy lifestyle.
Luckily my habits have changed by now, and I figured out how to improve my sleep quality. These days I feel less tired, more focused, more productive and most of all, I feel way happier. Here’s a list with tips on how you can improve your sleep as well.
