Do you need an energy boost in the morning?


Looking to put your coffee addiction on the backburner for awhile? Thankfully, there are other ways to energize during a workday. In fact, FastCo argues that the following six tactics are actually better for your productivity than a cuppa joe:
  1. Green tea
  2. Taking a break
  3. Power naps
  4. Hitting the gym
  5. Turning up the heat in the office
  6. Eating some chocolate and watching a funny YouTube video

Ignore No More

New York-area mom Sharon Standifird was fed up with her kids ignoring her phone calls, so she decided to do something about it. Eventually, Standifird developed an app called Ignore No More, which enables parents to effectively lock their child's phone from afar if they won't pick up. If a kid wants the password required to regain access to her usual array of smartphone accoutrements, she has to call home to get it. "Bradley needs to call me because I'm the person that has the unlock password," Standifird says, in reference to her son. "It takes away texting, it takes away the gaming, it takes away calling their friends." However, the child will still be able to call 911, should an emergency arise.

What would happen if you stood up for an entire month?

Have you heard that sitting is the new smoking? With some studies suggesting that those who sit 11 hours per day are 40 percent more likely to die within three years, more and more sedentary office-worker types have taken to "standing desks" and other gizmos that encourage them to spend more hours on their feet. But what would actually happen if you tried standing up for an entire month? New York writer Dan Kois embarked on such an experiment, allowing himself only to sit when driving or using the toilet (plus lying down to sleep). Here are some of his observations and findings:
 
  • His calves and heels ached like never before, but he lost five pounds in a month.
  • He no longer felt the need for a mid-afternoon nap, but felt wiped out by early evening.
  • He started taking short walks when he wanted a break from work, instead of sitting at his computer and surfing the Internet.
  • He found it more difficult to socialize and interact with his kids at meals, storytimes, etc.

When to do Stuff....

  • The Perfect Times of Day to Do Just About Everything

  • What's the perfect time of day to do, well, everything? Mental Floss has come up with precisely that list, grounding its calendar in physiological science. Following is a list of the best times of day to undertake various tasks, as well as the scientific explanation for why:

    • 8:30 a.m. Decide something. Researchers have found we make our best decisions right after we wake up.
    • 9:30 a.m. Update your blog. Many people check their favorite websites before 10 a.m.
    • 10 a.m. Take an aspirin. Mornings, particularly Mondays, are the most common times for both migraines and heart attacks.
    • 11 a.m. Send an email. Analysis of more than 200 million emails found that people are most likely to read their mail shortly before their lunch break. 
    • 1 p.m. Watch a funny YouTube video. Exhaustive analysis has shown that "the national mood" is lowest at 1 p.m., so cheer yourself up!
    • 2 p.m. Take a power nap. At around 2, your body temperature starts to drop the same way it does at night, and researchers have found that a 10-minute power nap is the most effective way of combating a mid-afternoon slump.
    • 4:30 p.m. Clean the house. It's best to clean when your hand-eye coordination is highest, which is between 4 and 5 p.m.
    • 5 p.m. Get some exercise. Your body temperature is highest from 5 to 6 p.m. The heat increases your stamina and strength, making your workouts more effective.
    • 9 p.m. Sell something on eBay. According to the site's experts, the best time to end an auction is 9 p.m.
    • 10 p.m. Solve the world's problems. Difficult problems require creative thinking, and studies show that people do their most abstract thinking when they are tired.
