Have you wondered why you start your day with an extensive list of things to do, and yet you are still unsatisfied with what you did the whole day?
Do you feel frustrated?
Story: AB is a busy business owner running his business with a tight fist on everything.
He has to take every decision in the business, from the biggest to the smallest.
His day ends at about 9 pm every day and then by the time he reaches home it is 9.30 pm.
Then, he has his dinner and then stretches out on the sofa watching a Hollywood film past 11 pm.
By the time the movie ends, it is past 1 pm.
Naturally, he gets up well past 9 am and by the time he reaches his office; it is past 11 am.
The same routine then starts and his lunchtime is 4 pm, in between endless cups of Chai.
Does this routine sound familiar to you?
It would if you are one of the busy business owners we meet in almost every industry and town in India.
The one micro change you should try is the “Blue Improvement”.
Can you guess what is it?
It is the light from the Mobile, the laptop, or even the TV – That Hollywood Movie is possibly affecting your sleep, and could even cause diabetes and obesity -according to researchers.
As mentioned by the Harvard Researchers – Blue light has a dark side
What is blue light?
Blue wavelengths—which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood seem to be the most disruptive at night.
And the proliferation of electronics with screens, as well as energy-efficient lighting, is increasing our exposure to blue wavelengths, especially after sundown.
Does TV emit blue light?
Yes, LED screens that are popular these days emit a great deal of blue light, which can be potentially harmful to the eyes.
Therefore, watching too much TV, especially late at night, can suppress melatonin production that makes us ready for sleep.
What is the Micro Change you must consider?
Stop watching that Hollywood Blockbuster or the latest Hindi Film late at night.
But, that is not a micro change that I promised but a macro change in lifestyle.
Micro Changes are small changes.
How can you then watch the movie and still make a change?
Keep a cut-off time to go to sleep.
If you want to go to sleep at midnight, then keep an alarm at 11.45 midnight.
Then, at 11:15 switch off the movie.
Irrespective of how good the movie is, you can always watch Netflix tomorrow.
Now, give your eyes a 15-minute break in complete darkness on the sofa and then only go to bed!
Remember, 12midnight is the cutoff!
Remember, you have a big match to win with the customers and you want to be fresh ready. Just like our cricketers prepare for an important match tomorrow. The way cricket is being played these days, every day there is a match right. And the whole country wants them to win every match. Similarly, you want to win every day right?
Watching a movie till 2 pm and expecting to win a critical match from 11 am is surely not one of them.
Do you agree?
Best of luck with the Daily Match
