Most people are of the opinion that workouts are done mainly for weight loss, this is very wrong. A good simple workout, not only keeps you fit, it stabilizes the brain.
Drink a lot of Water
Since the brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are boosted.
Eat a Light Breakfast
Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day and it is a good way to start your day with an energy boost. However, if you pile on the food and eat heavy meals, they will become energy sappers, and defeat the aim of eating breakfast in the first place. So pick something light but also filling like an egg-based meal.

When you break your tasks down, you won’t have a problem of being under pressure to finish your tasks for the day, and might even have extra time on yours hands to do more tasks.
With the following tips, I hope you have a productive day. See you next week.
