Accomplish June 12, 2017
Your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day, so use this time to accomplish things on your “to-do” list.
Start your morning at a specific time and stop hitting the snooze button! Get out of bed, open the curtains and get moving.
If you need help adjusting your morning routine, look no further. Here are ENTITY’s top six suggestions to have a more productive day.
Exercising in the morning reduces stress later in the day and stimulates your metabolism. You also develop discipline by consistently waking up and finishing your workout first thing in your day. It may suck at first, but it gets better easier time and consistency.
Studies actually show that participants who exercise in the morning, compared to those who exercise in the evening, sleep longer and deeper.
Drink water before coffee to hydrate your body and increase your energy. Only have one cup of coffee throughout the day, but make sure you have it before 2 p.m.
Additionally, consuming coffee on an empty stomach will not give you the boost you are looking for. Opt for tea instead as it contains more health benefits.
We’re sure you hear this often but we can’t stress how important it is to eat breakfast.
Eating a nutritious breakfast will make you productive and ready to start the day. It will also keep you from overeating throughout the day. And if you workout in the morning, eat a quick snack before your exercise and then follow your workout with a full breakfast.
Plan your day – even the outfit you plan to wear for the day. A good place to start is by finishing everything you didn’t get done the day before. Then once you’ve done that, schedule the rest of your day to stay organized and minimize stress levels. No amount of planning is too much planning.
Planning could even get you excited for the day.
Ask Mark Twain once said, “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.”
Spend time doing something that you don’t want to do – aka eat frogs – but need to get done. Then once you do this, reward yourself with social media and all things Internet-related.
Checking and responding to emails takes a lot of time and energy from your morning, so do positive things for your body before drowning yourself in work that you have all day to do.
Music affects your productivity and creativity. Repetitive tasks in the morning can be draining but music can make them a little more enjoyable. Make a playlist and start your day with the right beat!
Being productive starts from the moment you wake up to the moment you call it a night. Get some work done before life hits and I guarantee you’ll be more productive throughout the day.
