Your Most Productive Time of the Day ( At Your Best by Carey Nieuwhof )

  "Leverage your energy or lack of it. Don't fight the patterns, but fuel them". ~Carey Nieuwhof

We're going through this book, "At Your Best" by Carey Nieuwhof.

Are you a morning person, a middle-of-the-day person, or a night owl?

I'm asking because we are going to find out what your most productive time is... It could be in the morning, middle of the day, or in the evening.

We're going through the book "At Your Best" by Carey Nieuwhof. This book is about managing your time, energy levels, and priorities. If you feel like you need help with your time management, your energy levels, and your priorities, then this book is for you.

So over a year ago, I realized that mindset is so important for people when they're changing their lifestyle. Because if you don't believe that you can do it, you most likely will never do it. You have to work on your mindset and watch the words coming out of your mouth. The things you're thinking become your words, and your words become your actions, and those will be the results you will get.

So I read a book before called "The Miracle Morning". And based on that book, I would say my most productive times are in the morning and spurts in the afternoon. This means, I'm most productive in the mornings and then after homeschooling our four girls.

When are your most productive times?

"You've got times in your day where you're in the green zone. Sometimes you're in the yellow zone, and sometimes you're in the red. If you can identify your most productive times, you're going to get more effectively done in your day during your day throughout your life".

"Your energy waxes and wanes over your waking hours, because time feels different at different times during the day. At some point in your life, you probably slotted yourself into one of these two categories. You are either an early bird or a night owl. Some people actually say they're a middle-of-the-day people. But in general, you're either an early bird or a night owl".

Which one are you? I would love to know where you're at. I am an early bird now, but years ago when my girls were still babies, I was a night owl. They would go to bed and I would stay up as long as I could just to get some stuff done. And I do believe it comes with seasons. So I'm going to read you the overview of how this works.

𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝟮𝟰 𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝗱𝗮𝘆, 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗹.
"Most people have three to five deeply productive hours of the day. And oftentimes people will say that they don't have time"...
"It's an excuse used by so many people. But if you can figure out where your maximum time or you're most productive time of the day, then you will get the most done and be productive".

Green Zone: Your energy is high, your mind is clear, and your focus is sharp.
Red Zone: Your energy is low, you're struggling to pay attention and you feel it's very difficult to be productive.
Yellow Zone: Your energies are in the middle, you're neither at your best nor at your worst.

"Leverage your energy or lack of it. Don't fight the patterns, but fuel them".

Basically, the author will walk you through the best and most productive times of the day. How to utilize your time, how to get the most out of your day, and how to capitalize on your productive times. The biggest thing I tell people is, "If you know that your energy is low in the evenings, figure out your priorities and get the stuff done in the morning, or vice versa".

What does this have to do with fat loss?

Most people make excuses...

  • I don't have time to pack a lunch before I leave in the morning.

  • I don't have time to go to the gym.

  • I don't have time to plan my meals.

  • I don't have time to track my food.

  • I don't have time.

𝗧𝗵𝗲𝘀𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗼𝗻 𝗲𝘅𝗰𝘂𝘀𝗲𝘀, 𝘀𝗼 𝘁𝗿𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝗳𝗶𝗴𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗵 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲.

It could be in the morning or in the afternoon. You will do the things that you prioritize. It could be tracking your food, prepping your meals once a week, or going to the gym. If these are not a priority, then you won't do it anyways.

This book is about time management and how to help you on that journey. It's a great book, and if it's something that you need, go ahead and grab it.

I'm going to continue giving you the highlights of this book, and then we'll start a new book. If you have a suggestion for a book that you've been reading, let me know.

I want to help you with your mindset, your food, and water intake, moving your body, and making sure that you're taking care of yourself so that you can take care of others. That's the point of getting healthy.

It's great to have a fat loss because you'll feel better, but in general, my hope is that you can pour into other people. So that you can be a better mom, dad, boss, employee, or athlete.

You can be the best version of yourself.

So thank you for tuning in, it's going to be a super great day! I'm always here to help. Continue to tune into the page, and I hope you have an incredible morning. We'll talk to you later.
