How can you be at your most productive each day? Make the first 90 minutes work to your advantage.
A neuroscience-based study by the University of Michigan found that the adult brain focuses best from 9 until around 11am.
That’s when moderate levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, kick in. Cortisol helps sharpen the brain so it reacts and responds quickly and accurately.
What that means for you is that your most productive time of day is between 9 -11 each morning. It’s the way you use those hours that will make the difference to your results and as always I have a tip for you that I’ve picked up through experience.

It’s not every day you find out your father was a murderer and a thief. Then you realize he’s the one who wants you dead. Now, when he is killed, Marta is ready to put all the threats and thefts behind her and move on with her life in San Francisco and Venice. She knows she has to deal with returning stolen art and artifacts that still exist in his English mansion. But, what she doesn’t know are all the unsolved mysteries surrounding those stolen antiques and strangers wanting something from her, including her life.
Just when Marta thinks she is finished with her father, his double life, and his threats, things get ugly.
"This book is a natural sequel to the previous book, Vineyard Secrets. It's a story that begged to continue, even after the previous book seemed to have a logical conclusion. Just when you think it's over and done with, remnants of villains with previous associations decide to intervene. I found myself miffed and sometimes amazed at Marta's naivete, and delighted in her luck, but that is sometimes what keeps me going. She's missed quite a number of clues and puts herself in dangerous territory often enough, but she gets wiser while at the same time, doing everything she can to enjoy herself and her newly discovered fortunate circumstances. Will there be more? After getting to know these characters, and by the way, she's single with handsome men all around, I anticipate more from this, the history, the spectacular locations. . . and love in the wings? Skillful companions? Hmmmm. . . there are so many possibilities."
The human brain is visibly split into a left and right side. This structure has inspired one of the most pervasive ideas about the brain: that the left side controls logic and the right side controls creativity. And yet, this is a myth, unsupported by scientific evidence. So how did this idea come about, and what does it get wrong? Elizabeth Waters looks into this long held misconception.
