You know those mornings you wakes up and you just don’t want to do, we all have those right. Well, here’s the problem the key to a productive day is having a productive morning. That’s right, today, i have seven habits that you should apply in order to have a productive morning which leads to a productive day.
1. Have a To-Do List for the Next Day
Here’s secret a productive morning actually starts the night before you even go to sleep, what i want you to do is make sure that you write your to-do list for the next day before you go to bed the night before. There’s so many benefits to that honestly it’s life changing, here’s the difference. When you wake up and you don’t have your to-do list ready to go, you’re actually spending a lot of time just figuring out what you’re doing that day.
Also if you wake up and all of sudden realize that there’s a lot you need to do, you’re already behind, your morning’s not going to go well. On the flip side, if you write your to-do list at night before you wake up and you know exactly what you need to do.
2. Don't check notifications in the morning
The next point that i have for you guys is do not check your notifications in the morning. I know this isn’t going to apply to everyone because, a lot of us do work from our phones me included however. This is what happens when you check notifications in the morning.
Open your Tick Tock in the morning you’re scrolling and then all of a sudden you look up and it’s been 45 minutes, you’re late. And when you’re late in the morning it messes up your whole day. Lately we’ve been spending our lives in front of our screen, it’s actually really healthy for you to wake up, have large glass of water do not check your notifications. Look outside, open the blinds, breathe some fresh air, go for a walk.
Don’t be one of those people that wake up and go straight to their phones, not only is that going to be better for your health but, it’s also going to make your mornings more productive because, you’re nor wasting time on social media first thing in the morning.
3. Wake up & Sleep at the same time every day
This might be the most important one is going to sleep and walking up at the same time every single day and every single night. You see your body has this internal clock, it’s actually called the circadian rhythm. It’s basically your body’s natural way of telling you or knowing ‘hey this our time to go to sleep, this is our time to wake up’.
Every time you disrupt this internal clock you’re throwing off your natural rhythm and then you’re more tired, you’re more groggy during the day which leads to you not being as productive or not performing at the highest level.
4. Get your skincare done early
Four is getting your skincare routine done bright and early so, that you don’t have to think about it later. I know that if you guys follow me here, you probably have a pretty good skincare routine, I love it, that’s what’s up. Now, you don’t want to do it too late into the day because, it kind of cuts your day in half. You know you want to kind of wake up go to the gym and then do your skincare routine because, then you don’t have to think about it later.
It’s better for you to get it done bright and early so, that you don’t have to think about it later at all.
5. Work out in the morning
Speaking of working out in the morning, I truly believe that working out in the morning is so much better than working out after in the evening. Now, I understand not everyone can do that, It is an absolute luxury to be able to wake up in the morning.
Now, I used to work at nine to five for years for most of my life and I would still wake up super early go to gym and than go to work. Why? Well because, honestly I wasn’t getting a great workout after work i would work all day and than around 6 PM I go to the gym and First of all it was absolutely packed, and the second i didn’t have the energy. Because, all of my stress levels were up here form work, from solving issues all day at work so, I didn’t want to do anything, I just wanted to go home and chill.
In the mornings you have all the energy in the world you go to the gym and you can get it done you can put all of that energy into building and sculpting your body. So, I highly recommend you add working out to your morning routine instead of your evening routine.
6. Be a punctual person
You know what else crushes absolutely crushes your morning productivity is being late. If you have to get school, If you have to get to work and you’re late immediately you’re stressed out, You’re looking at your clock you’re trying to drive or you’re commuting somehow and you’re late. Your stress level are rising, you’re not feeling good, you’re thinking about what people are going to say to you when you arrive late to school or work that is not a good start to your day, you’re going to start out stressed out.
So, give yourself enough time to go to school, give yourself some buffer to get to work man. There’s traffic, there’s so many little things that can happen, For example: If you live in a building your elevator might be down, it might take you another five to ten minutes to get to the elevator and then you hit a red light boom that’s 10 to 15 minutes late, give yourself a 15 minute buffer, it’s the best thing that you can do and arriving 15 minutes early somewhere is actually so so good, It relieves you of all that stress, people are going to appreciate that. Being punctual is just an amazing trait to have in general so, make sure that you were being punctual.
7. Drink a lot of water (Bones Tips For you Guys)
Now, something that most people neglect without even knowing is hydration. Here’s the interesting thing about being hydrated or dehydrated. When you’re hungry you body literally tells you, you have to eat like your stomach will be growling, you feel tired, lightheaded, you get a headache, you need to eat, you know that. But, when you’re dehydrated, your body actually doesn’t really tell you for a long time. You’re not going to feel it until you’re really dehydrated, it’s pretty crazy our body just doesn’t make it very obvious that we are dehydrated. So, instead of being reactive and waiting for these symptoms to come in you have to be proactive and make sure that you’re staying hydrated throughout that day but, especially in the morning.
