5 Ways To Wake Up Early, A Training Guide To Implement

While some of us are early bird risers, most of us dread waking up early especially at the start of the week. I closely associate myself to the former category and so is my husband which makes mornings at our home less stressful. I have no secret to share but I thought today I would like to write about guiding you to transform into an early morning person. 

Those extra few minutes in the day that you get in doing this puts your day into perspective and lets you reap the advantage of waking up early. Waking up early is rewarding in many ways, the best outcomes for us is the fact that we spend time with each other before we begin our day.

People try all sorts of things to find an excuse to stay in bed. The entire process starts with a bit of effort and some determination to convince yourself that it is truly worth waking up early. 

Alarms are helpful, but if you are the kind that enters the snooze mode then you are bound to lose out on making valuable time. The most annoying habit people develop is to snooze beyond "fair time" and end up rushing through morning routines with little or no time to eat a healthy breakfast. Yes, this is an excruciating way to begin the day which in most cases ends up setting the mood for your productivity.

When you make the effort to rise and shine early, a ton of things fall into place. Let's look into a few super clutch tips that should help you rise and shine earlier than you ever imagined possible.

Train Yourself.

No one agrees that waking up early is easy, however the effort is to start training your body to be welcoming of it. Anything that you practice religiously for a period of fifteen days is bound to become a habit, so try to train your body and begin by drinking a glass of water. 

Motivate Yourself

If waking up early is considered depressing, a little motivation the previous night will ensure you feel good about the act. Make reminders and notes the previous night so that you know you have reason to wake up early the next morning.

Place the Alarm Clock Across The Room

Wow! it would make you feel so cranky and annoyed for the first couple of times, but placing your alarm clock across the room ensures you have to wake up to turn it off and once your on your feet, there is no reason to fall back asleep. This trick is useful for people who cannot afford to be late and let me assure you, it is not going to be positively received for the first couple of days. Gradually, you will thank yourself.

Get Your Dose Of Vitamin D

Vitamin D deficiency or hypovitaminosis D is a real deal. People who do not get exposure to 30 minutes of more of sun time end up with lack of calcium in the body. The best time to exploit sun exposure is during breakfast. Having breakfast by a window is the finest way to guarantee the maximum advantage of Vitamin D released by the sun.

Morning Stretch

To wake up and energize your full body, a little stretching goes a long way. A gentle stretch will elongate the muscles and wake you up. Follow this video for tips and tricks to get yourself energized and up on your feet.

You see, nothing seems difficult. A bit of determination will have you calling yourself an early riser and then you can see yourself shine throughout the day.

Have A Great Weekend!

DIY Yoga Mat Cleanser

Ever since I started working out 30 minutes a day on Yoga regime, I am always conscious about my yoga mat swelling up the funk after a session. It is important to clean the yoga mat regularly and let it air dry before folding it away. 

Yesterday's post was about all the poses that a beginner must know and learn to begin a yoga practice.If you missed it, here is a link to that post.

24 Yoga Poses For Beginners | FITWIRR

For a Yoga practitioner, you must always have a clean environment every time you set yourself up to practice Yoga. There are many products for yoga mat cleaners, but the best one I have is a DIY home cleanser that does the job just as effective. Here is the recipe below, a quick and easy way to clean your Yoga mat.

Purchase a spray bottle from the dollar store (if you can get a glass one that would be great). Fill the bottle with 1:1 filtered water and witch hazel(alcohol free). To this mixture you can add a 10 drops of those aromatic essential oils that you prefer. You may choose a combination or just one, its perfectly fine. I am a huge lavender buff so my preference is lavender and tea tree oil. Give the bottle a good shake and spray onto yoga mat. Wipe clean with a warm damp cloth and allow to air dry. Always store the spray away from sunlight in a dark, cool place.

24 Yoga Poses For Beginners | FITWIRR

At the dawn of the week, it is important to stay motivated to get through another repetitious  week.  Life at work may not always be peachy, but we do the best we can and it is important to reward ourselves for all the strain we undergo during the day. 

At the end of each working day, it is wonderful to find an activity that stimulates the nerves to stay calm and relaxed or unwind into something unknown. If you like taking walks, then nature welcomes you with open arms. A nice relaxed bath soothes anxiety and calms you down or reading a book is also another healthy practice. However, I would encourage you to embark on Yoga practice. 

Ofcourse, you must have heard from so many people that Yoga and meditation is a great stress reliever, so I am not emphasizing on anything new. I encourage you to follow this field and let your body and mind unite under this practice to reveal incredible results in your life.

Yoga is my stress reliever. I like to spend 30 minutes on meditation and yoga every day. Yoga is a powerful means of psychological integration that reunites the mind and body to bring balance to your life. Governed by true moral principles of embrace, self discovery, awareness and unity with one and all, the practice is proven to increase the flow of energy in you and around you. It is amazing what 30 minutes of yoga can do and I encourage you to give it a try.

As a yoga practitioner or 'yogini', I suggest you learn the beginner poses and postures to warm up and get the body into a rhythm. The other thing you need to do is commit to practice daily. It may be intimidating at first, but gradually you will be impressed with the results. 

Here is one great article to read for beginners in Yoga posted by fitwirr.com that clearly breaks down the poses that you must learn when you practice this art. Make sure you read and understand the requirements explained.

4 Top IT Skills That Hire

The business oriented social networking service,LinkedIn, has published its results on hiring and recruiting activities of 2015. The hottest skill sets interpreted by LinkedIn that contracted employment in 2015 were in Cloud and Distributed Computing, Statistical Analysis and Data Mining, Marketing Campaign Management, SEO/SEM Marketing and Middleware and Integration Software. 

If you are looking out for new job ventures why not consider four other influential skill sets which LinkedIn has also analysed and studied to decipher the top recruitment jobs till date. These career options are steadily growing and employing workforce across the globe.
Here are four other trending jobs in the market that you should know.

Mobile Application Development

It is not surprising with the growing need for mobile applications usage, this is one of the top recruiters. With developers swaggering in ios, Swift or Android development, the need to hire mobile developers has never been this great. 

As with any product,  the development to production requires upgrade, maintenance and bug fixes that adhere to technology standards in a growing market. Here the developers are hired to ensure the product is satisfactorily delivered. If you have first-rate interest in this field, a career in  mobile app development maybe apt for you.

Network and Information Security

Network security allures promising professionals to be hired to ensure safety and security of network-accessible resources. Securing an organization's network to keep interconnected systems and data safe is of prime importance to most companies. Procuring a job with this skill set is an incredible advantage for individuals and start-ups alike.

User Interface Design (UI)

This is a fascinating career option, but one of the most intriguing jobs to pursue. As a designer, it is not only imperative to code, edit and assemble, but also add value, meaning, simplify and modify existing UI structures. When the design is successful, the user focuses on usage instead of the interface. If you have the patience and skills for good product design, the market is open to hire you.

Integration Software Development

In most company profiles, several software programs, often disparate subsystems, are integrated into one large comprehensive system that easily shares data when required. When they have to build an in-house software program to combine systems to cohesively function, developers are hired to execute the task. These developers mediate between separate programs to ensure functionality is met. For someone who loves coding and is keen on developing software for integration, this is the profile you need to apply to.

Today, companies are not seeking professionals  that are text-book smart but rather street-smart individuals that are passionate to improvise solutions and creative enough in a hyper-competitive market. The above four career options are to expose those lesser known lucrative technical jobs that are favoured in today's world and to guide the reader to choose his/her subject of learning based on the above analysis.
