Steps You Can Take For A

Productive Morning


  1. Go For A Quick Walk

Going outside and exposing yourself to natural light prompts your body to reset its internal circadian rhythm for a new day, giving you an energy boost, according to the National Sleep Foundation.


  1. Make your bed

You don’t need to do a heart-pounding workout to feel accomplished in the morning. Instead, bestselling author and four-star admiral William McRaven suggests something simpler: making your bed.


  1. Write down “three good things.”

The “three good things” exercise is simple, Once a day, write down three things that went well for you that day and explain why they went well. Some people complete the exercise at night, but you could try it in the morning as a way to reflect on the previous day.


  1. Get some caffeine

Yes, you already know that caffeine can make you more alert. (Or, if you’re a caffeine addict, you know that it’s required for basic functioning.) But did you know that its effects extend throughout the day? It takes about 5 to 6 hours for just half the caffeine you’ve ingested to wear off.


  1. Do a tiny task that you would otherwise dread all day

There’s no real science behind this one, but it’s easy to see how it works. Imagine coming home to clean kitchen, or a bedroom with all the clothes folded, hung, and put away. It sets the stage for a relaxed evening.


  1. Talk to someone you love

That good feeling you get after chatting with a loved one isn’t just a nice way to start the day — it’s actually good for your body.  More scientific evidence is showing that social interaction is crucial to our wellbeing.

Dear Mr. Editor,

I know you want names and addresses when people complain about something, but in this case, I just can’t give it to you. I feel this really should be brought up.

Regarding rent control there needs to be a bill introduced, but no one wants to do it because they are in with the landlords.

In this town there are a lot of landlords that are getting so greedy and there are going to be a lot of homeless people in this town shortly because of slum lords. There are No jobs in this town that can pay for what they want. Why cant these landlords get it. There are good tenents that have been there ten plus years and pay their rent on time and now they will be homeless. Wow how sad and shame on you.

Then there are people on fixed incomes and cant go back to work and they must go to the food pantry, and they must have leap during the winter to pay the electric bill just to make it through the month. Then you want to jack up the rent to $1,000 plus and a person on a fixed income cant pay that, you are very selfish people land lord. There are single moms, and they are having a hard time making it and if they have a lot of kids that is a really struggle for them.

There are no rentals in town for the people that are going to be homeless in the next few months when their contract must be renewed. I don’t want to go on and on, but something needs to be done. Someone needs to stand up for us little people that are just barely getting by and now we will be homeless.

Why should we be homeless in this town when it can be avoided and stop jacking up the rent.

Homelessness is a problem all over and the landlords can prevent it in our town.
