    Top 10 Easy Ways to Grow Your Career

    When I was little, I used to envision myself as the boss of an office space. Never a specific office–like Nabisco or anything–but always somewhere in a successful role at the office. And I secretly still hoped that I’d get to be a top dog at an office when I graduated college. But I learned quickly that you have to grow your career before you can step into a leadership role. I know that waiting something like 10 or 15 years, sounds like forever when you’re 22. But what I’m realizing now that I’m in the “real” world, is that there’s still a lot to learn.

    The #1 Thing I Did to Increase My Productivity

    Now that I’m working from home, I’m responsible for my daily actions. This means if I take a nap or spend an hour on social media, instead of writing like I should, then the only one that’s mad is myself. When I made the decision to leave my job, I had to learn how to increase my productivity. We are all responsible for how we choose to spend each day. And it SUCKS when we have a long to do list, but barely scratch the surface. However, if we’re being honest, the list wasn’t too long, we just weren’t disciplined. Am I right?

    The Morning Routine You Need to Win Your Morning

    Feeling Tired all the Time? Here’s How to Fix It

    Lately, I’ve been waking up in a fog–or at least I feel that way after a few hours of being awake. It’s as if a sheet is pulled over my eyes and I can’t seem to fully wake up. It’s the hardest when I’m feeling tired, but can’t take a nap since I’m at work. Knowing that I couldn’t let this persist, I’ve been doing some research. There’s a condition called Sleep Inertia that persists during the transition of sleep to wakefulness, which can lead to feelings of prolonged drowsiness. Essentially it’s the state of feeling tired all day long. Not something we want to deal with when we still…

    How to Use the 5 Second Rule Every Day

    I’m a notorious snooze button person. No matter what I tell myself the night before, when the alarm goes off in the morning, I will roll over and immediately tap the snooze. It started out as a conscious decision, but now it’s become more of a reflex. Until this week, when I learned about the 5 second rule. At first glance, I thought the rule was about quickly eating something I dropped on the floor. It’s not. The 5 second rule is a simple countdown in order for you to take action. And apparently, it’s a major factor of how our day will turn out. My post contains affiliate links.…

    Why Gratitude is Important to Change Your Life

So I’ve started researching more into how being grateful changes your life and shapes…
