Do you have a hard time finding your work-life balance? Did you ever wish you should have done better at the end of your day? Perhaps more words could have been written. Few more things could have been checked off the to-do list.
If you relate to any of it, you really do need to be mindful of your time. Do you want to improve your productivity? One way you can do that is by hacking productivity. If done right, it seems like you have improved your efficiency.
In this blog, the productivity hacks are routines that are tried and tested, and all of them would allow you to split up existing processes and to retrain your functioning with better performance. Let’s dive right in.
1. Make your bed in the morning.
It's very tempting when your bed calls out to you in the morning, and we often fall back to sleep. This hack will make sure you won't be tempted to go back there. If you feel you are not getting enough sleep, try these sleep cycle hacks.
2. Make a to-do list.
Try to tick off as many tasks as you can in the set time period and reward yourself for all the completed lists.
3. Exercise every single day.
Post-exercise, you'll feel super energetic, even though you don't do anything during the day.
4. Have a nice king-size breakfast
Breakfast is the first meal of your day. Keep it healthy and energetic. This is the source of your energy and will contribute the most for a productive day in your life. Plan your breakfast a day in advance, so you don't have to rush in the mornings. In fact, plan your meals for the complete week, you won't have to think about it and will save a lot of time every day. Organize your pantry while you are at it; you will never spend too much time searching for your favorite snack again.
5. Invest in a planner.
Plan everything you and use your planner for it. Plan your daily, weekly, and monthly goals. You'll start to see your life change within a couple of months.
6. Organize your workspace.
You'll feel more productive straightaway. They say a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind. Spending 10 minutes in the morning to clear your workspace will help avoid any disturbances throughout the day. Declutter your email inbox, while it can be a little overwhelming sometimes, you'll never miss out on an important email.
7. Unsubscribe people that don't bring you joy anymore.
At a point in life, some people will not bring you joy. It would be best if you disconnected from these people. These can be your friends, family, or even social media influencers. Trust me; you will feel much more relieved.
8. Deep clean your room.
Clear space leads to a clear mind. Your bedroom is the space where you want to be relaxed and not get a panic attack. Clear out your space, organize your closet, and donate everything you don't need anymore.
9. Read a book before bed.
Reading is way better than scrolling on social media. Finish a chapter each day before bed. Or at least a page.
Spending 10 minutes before sleeping for meditation will make you feel rejuvenated. Clear your mind before you sleep, so you have a good night's sleep.
11. Take a walk
Get some fresh air. A walk in the open will make you feel motivated to conquer the world.
12. Spend less time on the phone.
This hack will make your life so much more productive. Don't check your phone right after you wake up and enjoy the slow and peaceful morning. Turn off unnecessary notifications on the phone. Don't let this little machine distract you!
13. Schedule a rest period.
We all need some relax time. Have fixed sleeping schedules. You can do the things you love during this time. But don't watch too much Netflix! Spend some time focusing on yourself.
Add these hacks to your routine, and I bet they'll turn your life around, and you'll always have some time left on your hands. When you reach this point, create a music playlist with your favorite songs and dance like no one is watching.
