Value. It's more than the amount we give to currency but an important intrinsic measurement that we all have. It's the difference between these two statements.
How to be productive? First of all, we need to know what productivity is. Based on definition from Oxford Languages productivity means the effectiveness of productive effort. In terms of daily life, being productive could be define as to use our time wisely. Being productive in a day will prevent us to keep laying on our bed with a negative thoughts. I promise that being productive will give you a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits are:
There are people in the world, and they can enjoy life, and there are people in life who needs a push to enjoy life. Enjoying life is not really difficult, although, you have to find it in the little things in your life.
Life is funny. We get up we go to work, we earn money, and at the end of our lives, we die. It does not have to be that disappointing though. We can do so much more than we think we are capable of. I will be honest I am so exhausted after work that all I want to do is sit in my comfy, large spinning chair and watch Netflix or people watch from my window. However, that is not a healthy way to live life. Sure, I do enjoy it and we should do the things we enjoy right? Right. So, you might be asking me, what is the healthy thing you do that keeps you going? Well my dear audience and readers, I love to dance. I like turning up that music that sounds like trash to my parents and grooving in my room, sometimes while cleaning. I sing the lyrics out loud so much so that my next-door neighbours are shutting their windows tight. There is something fun and relaxing about moving your body to shake it up by Taylor Swift while reaching for that last spec of dust with your swifer duster. Or I like to watch choreographed videos of dance and then copying them to my best ability. I am a huge fan of Matt Steffanina Choreography because it challenges me to move more, as well as Kyle Hanagami. They are both superb choreographers and you feel cool doing the moves and not silly at all. Sure, you can dance silly if you want and get a good laugh from everyone around you, but dance makes me feel good about myself.
People always tell you that the first step is always the hardest. I do believe that this is true. Telling stories, writing about life challenges and giving others inspiration by writing is my goal but I never believed I was a good writer. I've been riddled with self-doubt for a very long time and could not put my fingers on the keyboard and let those creative juices out. I had words trapped inside my mind, screaming at me "Let me out!". I didn't listen. I ignored my passion completely and didn't do anything to get better at it. I scrolled endlessly on social media, watched Netflix and YouTube for hours, or took a nap. All of these actions didn't contribute to my writing and held me hostage. I reached my breaking point. What was I going to do about this overwhelming fear of what I loved most in the world? I would write. "Write like you're running out of time"- Hamilton

I have always been naturally slow to wake up in the morning. Always struggling to get out of bed, and I have always seen this as time wasted. So instead of just lying in bed fighting myself to get up, what I do is I write. I write, songs, poems, short stories, book reviews. Just as long as I am writing. This is a good way to start the day for me, so I don’t feel like I am wasting time. I just love to write. I have always wanted to be an author, and what better time than right now with this pandemic going on to practice it (Since we all have the extra time now days). I find writing so calming and easy. Writing just seems so naturally to me, the words just flow out and it is such a magical feeling. Writing in the morning also wakes up my brain in the morning and gets me motivated to do something productive. It definitely does set the tone for the rest of the day.

I am a night owl. Well, not literally. I don’t have wings, live in a tree and swivel my head around 270 degrees.
