Here is an extract from the Day Designer blog with some of these tips and hacks…
Work backwards to prep for the day.
Wake up 15 minutes earlier. What can you do that will help you do that? Go to bed earlier. Prepare for your day the night before by deciding what’s for breakfast, setting out your clothes, and knowing what’s on the agenda. You’ll feel more eager to start your day!
Get started with the small stuff to gain momentum.
When you’re ready to start your day, check a few quick five-minute tasks off your list. This feeling of accomplishment will set you up for a more productive day!
Touch your planner before you touch your phone.
We always love this tip! Leave that phone on the charger until you’ve had some time to yourself and thought through the day ahead.
Review what matters most.
Write down your values, strengths, goals, priorities, and big projects. Review them on regular basis to keep them at the forefront of your brain!
Taking a break will increase your focus and creativity! Get outside. Go for a walk. Call a friend. Enjoy your coffee without a screen in front of you. Refill your water. Or find something fun on your to-do list, such as shopping for a gift, and build that into your break!
Change your mindset to get back on track.
When you feel defeated, think of something you’re grateful for. When you feel overwhelmed, plan tomorrow. When you feel like quitting, think of the feeling you’re trying to achieve.
You can do this!
