4 Things You Should Do In The Morning For A Super Productive Day

4 Things You Should Do In The Morning For A Super Productive Day

In my opinion, how you start your day is a huge factor in how productive the next 24 hours will be. During the work week (and some Saturdays), I try my best to come out of the gate ready to go, so I’m able to have a super productive day and get as much done as possible. To amplify your productivity for the day, there are 4 things I highly suggest doing in the morning to set yourself up for success.

4 Things You Should Do In The Morning For A Super Productive Day

Write Up A To-Do List | One thing I always make sure to do at the start of my day is to write up a to-do list. My brain is constantly going a million miles a minute and it’s very easy for me to forget things, so jotting down what needs to get done each day helps me stay productive as well as organized. You can do this the old fashioned way on paper or by keeping a little checklist on your phone. Either way, get into the habit of writing up a list of to-do’s each morning and I promise you’ll notice a vast improvement in your daily productivity.

Dress To Impress | Whether you work from home or out in public, I think it’s important to dress your best each day. I know this can mean different things depending on if your workplace has a dress code, but whether is does or does not make sure that you feel good in what you’re wearing. I always find that I’m able to work better when what I’m wearing is comfortable and makes me feel confident. Staying in pajamas all day may sound super enticing since I work from home, but whenever I do I end up not wanting to work as hard or get as much done as I should. Whatever you have on your to-do list for the day, just make sure you get up, get dressed in something that makes you feel awesome, and get to work.

Tackle What You Hate | No, this is not advice for how to handle the haters. 😉 Instead, my advice here is to tackle the tasks that you hate doing first. For me, it’s my inbox. I’m so bad at staying caught up with emails, and because of that my inbox can sometimes be an absolute disaster. What I like to do is tackle my inbox first thing instead of pushing it off throughout the day. This way, I’m able to get it checked off my list right away and will feel more productive right off that bat, which always encourages me to get even more work done for the day (especially when everything else on my list is fun and there’s no overflowing inbox looming in the back of my mind).

Don’t Skip The Small Things | It can be easy to get caught up in the rush of early mornings, but you definitely don’t want to skip out on the small stuff. Things like washing your face, eating a good breakfast, and preparing for the day may not sound like essentials, but taking the time to do them every morning really does help make the day more productive. When you take the time to slowly start your day, you’re able to focus on what needs to get done instead of just rushing into your workload without first thinking it through. Also, things like having a balanced breakfast (that isn’t scarfed down while riding the bus) and practicing a daily skincare routine help your body get ready to take on the day.

    This is so helpful! I’m a big fan on to-do lists. Also, skipping small things is a habit that has taken me a while to break. Sometimes the amount of stuff you have to do is overwhelming that you can forget about them, so I like to schedule them onto my to-do-list too! x

    For me I’m always so more productive throughout the day if I take 15 mins or so in the morning to actually get ready, even if I don’t leave the house. Getting up, dressed, hair done and makeup on just makes me feel ready to take on the day whatever! … Also, not hitting snooze really helps, however hard that might be!

    Lovely post! I try and get up early (50/50%) of the time. I make my bed that I find thats makes me somehow productive. I write a to-do list because it will be on my mind while I sleep.

    Writing to-do lists has become an addiction for me! I do it every evening for the next day, and every Sunday for the week ahead. Then you can keep on track and you know what you have to do all the way!

    To do lists are so essential. And lol I found by tackling the things I hate first makes me more productive because then I don’t spend ages procrastinating and making excuses about doing them lol.

    Writing a to-do list is one of the best things! I should really do them more for weekends – I usually just do a monthly to-do list (which I post on my blog now to keep myself accountable). I definitely utilize to-do lists for work and occasionally for any brand partnerships I may have – just so I know what I have left to do.

    I think dressing up and NOT staying in PJs all day definitely helps. Often times when I stay in PJs all day on weekends I find I don’t really do anything productive at all as I’m more inclined to just stay on the couch and watch TV all day :B

    Yessss to writing the lists! I always have three lists going, my work to-do, my blog list and then my personal admin list. It’s so important because I feel like it just motivates me for the day and I get such a sense of accomplishment when I tick something off any of the lists! xx

    Writing to do lists is definitely my jam though I typically write them the night before. Writing 3 things I am grateful for is a great way to start the day. Mediating, exercising and eating a good breakfast also help me set the day up for success.
