1. Alarm Clock

Additionally, place the alarm slightly far from your bed so that you have to stand up to turn it off.

2. Pocket Notebook

A pocket notebook is a convenient tool that can be placed on your desk while working or taken with you when working outside.

It allows you to jot down notes in various situations, such as in the morning while enjoying your coffee, during breaks from digital screens, or before going to bed.

By providing an offline platform for capturing your thoughts, a pocket notebook can help you reflect and learn more about yourself.
