3 Steps to Your Most Productive Morning Ever
Last week we talked about some of the common health mistakes people make at their fall get-togethers. Hopefully, you’ve been putting that useful information into practice at your tailgate parties and football gatherings.
This week, we want to talk about mornings. While some people naturally seem to thrive in the morning, others struggle with waking up and getting things done in the early hours of the day. If you’re someone who finds it difficult to accomplish anything in the morning, we’ve got some great tips for you.
Whether you’re an early bird or usually a night owl, here are three steps you can follow for your most productive morning ever.
Step #1 – Start Preparing for a Productive Morning the Night Before
One of the best things you can do to ensure you’re productive in the morning is to spend 10-15 minutes preparing before you go to bed at night. Take a few minutes to jot down a few tasks for the next day. Choose what you plan to wear, so you don’t have to make that decision in the morning. Set your intentions for the following day, and ensure you keep phones and other electronics out of bed, so you fall asleep more easily.
Step #2 – Have a Morning Routine to Spark Productivity
One of the best things anyone can do to make their mornings more productive is to have a good morning routine that helps you feel anchored and focused. No one routine will work for everyone. However, your morning routine should include things that include gratitude, planning for your day, and focusing on your goals. Adding some stretching or gentle yoga to that routine offers benefits as well.
Step #3 – Choose a Healthy Breakfast
Yes, your breakfast is key to the morning’s productivity. Not only is a healthy breakfast linked to lower BMI, but it’s also associated with improved focus and memory throughout the day. Eating a healthy breakfast in the morning will improve your concentration, so you’re able to be more productive in the morning and throughout your day.
While some people enjoy mornings and others are drawn towards the evenings, anyone can take steps to ensure they maximize productivity in the morning hours. Follow these steps regularly, and you’ll find it easier to eliminate procrastination and boost productivity.
