Alright, buckle up, let's go!
22. Get enough sleep & honour your Circadian rhythm
Not getting enough sleep has been scientifically proven to interfere with mood & metabolic rate, read more about this fascinating subject here.
23. Exercise at home
I exercise daily at home. The truth is, there are so many online options these days that it isn't necessary to leave home anymore & if you're a mum of small ones who works full time like me, it's much easer to fit into your morning routine.
24. Exercise daily
20-30 minutes daily is more effective than a few hourly classes per week. Trust me... I know.
25. Listen to a book whilst completing another activity
26. Shop online
All that time you spend getting there, browsing, not to mention making impulse buys... it all adds up. Online shopping makes life so much easier, just allocate a time for it each week so that you're not tempted to overindulge!
27. Spend 15-20 minutes cleaning down surfaces & staying on top of laundry every day.
28. Use waiting time while out to complete outstanding tasks
30. Create an evening routine
31. Keep your schedule simple
Be realistic about what you can complete in a day. Don't set yourself up to fail.
32. Get your clothes out the night before
33. Use a timer
34. Analyse your daily habits & ask yourself - 'what's working? And what isn't?'
35. Make every outing count
Popping to town, but also have a parcel you need to send back - take it with you. For a FREE bonus tip, keep a bag by your front door, ready for tasks you need to complete when you go out next, then just simply grab the bag & take it with you. DONE!
36. Stick to a colour scheme for your clothes
Creating a colour schemed 'capsule wardrobe' is a great solution for anybody wanting to save time & money. read this interesting blog post here to learn more.
37. Delete social media apps regularly
Social media has changed the way we think & affected the amount of information our brains can handle in one go. Taking regular breaks & training the brain to focus for longer periods of time is really effective if you want to increase productivity.
38. Multi task
39. Don't over task
Tempting... I know, but it's a bad habit that will lead to you accomplishing less than you set out to do. And may even make you feel bad for not completing everything. Don't set yourself up for failure my friend.
40. Minimise distractions
41. Stack tasks together
Be mindful as you move around your home completing tasks... going into the kitchen to put some toast on, but know you need to look at the diary to schedule that app? Pop your toast in & pick the diary up while you're there. This saves time & energy moving back & forth unnecessarily. It all adds up!
42. Allocate some much needed time for rest time
Rest is so important for you to maintain focus, stay feeling good & stay on task.
The last is by no means least... rest is such an underrated and essential ingredient to productivity.
Sending you lots of love!
