Hustle Bae Blog/Personal Development/ How Smart Bulbs and Other Hacks Can Transform Your Productivity

Picture this: it's 5:00 am and your alarm is blaring. You had a super late night, and all you want to do is hit snooze and go back to sleep. But you can't - you have a busy day ahead of you. As you sluggishly get ready for the day, you realize you don't have time for the gym or to make breakfast. So, you run to Starbucks and grab an impossible sandwich and some coffee to keep you up. Your friend calls and unloads her problems on you, while you're thinking about everything you have to do with not enough time to do it. To make matters worse, you finally get to eat something solid at work around lunchtime, you grab some fast food and a soda to keep you going (because Chick-fil-a was the best option today). And by the time you get home, you're so drained that you don't want to do anything - whether it's working on your passion project or just relaxing with a good book. Sound familiar?

But here's the thing: we often overlook the impact that our energy levels and emotional state have on our productivity. We've all been there, and then we beat ourselves up about being lazy when that's not the case. The truth is, our productivity is closely tied to our energy levels and emotional state, and it's essential that we learn how to manage them to reach our full potential.

As a woman who wears all the hats and does all the things, let me tell you, managing your energy and emotions can make all the difference. In our fast-paced society, we are constantly searching for ways to maximize our output and get more done in less time. The problem is, we often overlook the importance of managing our energy levels and emotional state in order to improve our productivity.

So, let's explore how we can take control and maximize at this thing called life.

✅ THE POWER OF MUSIC

Now, I know it's not always easy to manage our energy levels, especially when we're juggling work, family, and everything else life throws at us. But trust me, it's worth it. Whether it's through regular exercise, taking breaks when we need them, or simply taking time to recharge, there are plenty of ways we can boost our energy and stay on top of our game. I know firsthand that managing my energy has helped me achieve my goals and find success in my career. Besides the basics, sleeping right, eating right, and exercising here are a few others that I use on a daily.

First up, let's talk about the power of music. Research has shown that listening to music can increase dopamine levels in the brain, which can lead to increased motivation and focus. So, experiment with different genres and playlists to find what works best for you. Whether it's r&b, hip-hop, or anything in between, find the beats that help you stay focused and energized. I love to listen to lofi-beats when I’m studying or getting work done.

✅  MINDFULNESS

Another strategy to try is mindfulness. Mindfulness is all about being present and fully engaged in the current moment. By incorporating mindfulness techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or visualization exercises, you can reduce stress and increase energy levels. Give it a try, girl - it might just change your life. I do deep breathing every morning and It’s been a game changer, I feel so much lighter when I’m done. Don’t knock it before you try it!

✅  WORK ENVIRONMENT

Now, let's talk about your work environment. Did you know that your environment can have a big impact on your energy levels and productivity? Experiment with different lighting, colors, and temperature to find the optimal environment for your productivity. Maybe you work best in a brightly lit room, or maybe you need a quiet, calm space to stay focused. I use Smart Light Bulbs that are dimmable and change colors. and let me tell you, it has made a huge difference in my productivity. By adjusting the brightness and color temperature of my workspace, I've been able to create an environment that's tailored to my needs. For example, I use brighter, cooler tones in the morning to help wake me up, and warmer, softer tones in the evening to help me wind down. The ability to adjust the lighting in my workspace has really helped me stay focused and energized throughout the day. If you're looking for an easy way to boost your energy levels and increase productivity, give smart light bulbs a try. Trust me, amazing product! You can even schedule the time. Whatever it is, make sure your work environment is working for you.

And then there are Candle-lite scented candles, specifically the Vanilla & Sandalwood, not only do they smell amazing, but they also help me relax and stay focused. The soft, warm glow and subtle scent create a cozy atmosphere that helps me feel more centered and calm. Whether I'm working on a big project or just need to unwind after a long day, these candles have been a game-changer for me. Plus, they last for hours and are an affordable way to create a calming environment in your home or workspace. So, if you're looking for an easy way to boost your energy levels and stay focused, I highly recommend trying out scented candles like Candle-lite. It smells so good!

✅  BRAIN BOOST

And finally, consider trying brain-boosting supplements like caffeine, green tea extract, and omega-3 fatty acids. These supplements have been shown to improve cognitive function and increase energy levels, but make sure to talk to your doctor before trying any new supplements to make sure they are safe for you.Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier is another must-have in my energy management toolkit though. These powder packets come in a variety of flavors (I love the Lemon Lime!), and they're packed with nutrients that help you stay hydrated and energized throughout the day. Whether I'm hitting the gym, running errands, or just need a quick boost, these packets are a game-changer. They're packed with electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals that help me stay hydrated and energized, without the need for sugary energy drinks or coffee (and I love my coffee). Plus, they're convenient to carry with you on-the-go, making it easy to stay hydrated no matter where you are. If you're looking for an easy way to boost your energy levels and stay hydrated, give Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier a try. Your body will thank you! & trust me if nothing else, these are good to have on that drinking night out with the girlies
