You always find yourself as a productive and dedicated human being, but there are the times when no matter what you do, you feel stuck. If you feel that way sometimes, I tell you it’s a common phenomenon for a person as you are working every day.
There are things you can do each day to combat those feelings that hinder your productivity. You can reschedule and change pattern of your work to get on the track in a full swing. The following tips will help you be productive every day.
Get yourself ready:
Most importantly, you have to get ready for having a “good day”. “Good day” is really just a state of mind and it requires you more organized and disciplined to do your daily work. Nobody can make you have bad day but “YOU” because you know that life is 20% what happens to you and 80% how you react to it. When you wake up in the morning, set your intention and declare that today you will have a great day. It is like “it’s a great day to have a great day”! One of the most important component of a “good day” is feeling successful and productive in some way. Feeling like you accomplished something will always make you feel productive when you are going to sleep at night.
Plan your day the night before:
You have a lot of works to do but when you start doing your work at morning you choose your work randomly. At the end of the day it turns out that you should have done another work but you forgot or what you did all day is less important work. Therefore, you are going to finish your day unsatisfied and not productive.
What you should do is to write plan your day the night before. Taking even just five minutes the night before to set your plan for the next day will make a huge difference. Be calm and take your note pad and think of your next day what works you would like to accomplish tomorrow. Write those down on your note pad clearly. You will see the to-do-list next day and start doing work. Ticking the work after accomplishing one from the list will incredibly boost you for doing the next one. You will be pleased at the end of the day.
You should look at your upcoming calendar at night to know what appointments and tasks you have scheduled for upcoming days. It will help you be mentally prepared for them. You should make a list of the most important things you need to do the next day and compare that to what is on your calendar so you can fix well your next day plan.
Prepare your day the night before:
Pull together your bag, laptop, watch, mobile, workout gear, work clothes, shoes, lunch and all necessary staff before you go to bed. Pack your bag as much as you can and go to sleep with no thought left for morning. When you get everything ready to go for the next day before you go to bed, you’ll have a much comfortable morning because you can get up and go.
You will have less to think about your morning preparation and you will not run around looking for things you need for the day, and you don’t have to waste your precious morning time to remember what you need to take with you for the day. Preparing ahead of time will help you start your day with a good feeling and more control.
Get a sound sleep:
Experts say that a sound sleep make you to feel calm, centered, focused, balanced, and happy in your regular life. Those people who don’t get enough sleep suffer from various health problems, lack of focus, irritability, and mid-day slumps. The ideal amount of sleep is 7 to 8 hours and no less than 6 hours a day. You should go to bed early and turn off your all electronic devices like Television and Mobile an hour before bed to keep your brain calm and enjoy a sound sleep.
Take some time only for yourself:
From the very moment when you wake up till go out for work, taking just few minutes of quiet time will help you have a more successful day. There are no set rules here. It could be meditation or just following your breathing or it could be some prayer time. Just be relax and comfortable for a couple of minutes reflecting on the yesterday and upcoming day. Be calm and think of that you are going to have a great day.
Take a healthy breakfast:
You need adequate energy to take action and start your day after waking up of eight or more hours. You have to feel well and have the energy to start a productive day. Experts said that around 70% of energy is spent on digestion alone, so if you are taking heavy breakfast early in the day, you will be taking a lot of energy away from what actually you need it to get things done and feel good while you will be doing your work.
Time batching is a simple time-management productivity hack to get a lot done in a short amount of time. Batch your time for your work, block out a few hours, turn off all destructions, concentrate your work, focus on it, and unleash your capacity to get things done. After accomplishing your work, go for some relax, drink water, take snacks, and go for further one. Spend focused and uninterrupted batched time on your work and you will be amazed at what you can get done.
The practice of gratitude must transform your mindset to be more resilient, consistent and balanced in your work. It basically develops your mental development that helps to be more mature and courteous. Never get disappointed for what you don’t have rather be grateful for what you have.
Practicing gratitude can be as simple as you want to be. Gratitude should be expressed verbally and spontaneously. One of the simplest ways to begin the daily practice of gratitude is to feel grateful when you first open your eyes in the morning before your feet even hit the floor.
