I’m a procrastinator by heart, so in order to make sure I get everything done I force myself into a routine. I like to always wake up at the same time and stand at the best part of the station platform for getting on the train quickly. All these little things help to make me my day more productive.
Yes – getting to know where the doors are going to stop on the platform only saves me one minute or so everyday. But it makes me feel like my commute is going faster. Which puts me in a good mood and helps to kick start my day.
Here are some other little ways you can ensure you’ll have a productive day:
Make Your Bed – I know, I know I sound like your Mom. But taking a few minutes in the morning to make your bed look nice doesn’t just give you that feel good – post clean up feeling. It gives you something to look forward to coming home to!
Make a List – obviously I think writing a list will make your more productive! You might know exactly what your going to do today, but sometimes I like to write a list just so I can cross things of as I go. It makes me feel more accomplished and stops you getting those afternoon blues where you wonder ‘what have done today?’.
Don’t Push Snooze – I simply cannot stand to lie in bed and hit the snooze button over and over again – I get too restless! But I know for some people it’s a daily occurrence. But by pushing snooze every five minutes your not actually getting any ‘proper’ sleep meaning you start your day off all groggy. Better to just sleep in for a extra fifteen minutes and get up the first time your alarm goes off.
Drink Matcha Tea – I love matcha tea! It’s like green tea – only better! Matcha tea contains a unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins, which are known for their cancer fighting properties. The process of making tea is very relaxing, plus the small caffeine boost and rush of antioxidants will give you that extra bit of energy.
