Productivity Tips to Improve Your Daily Routine

Do you ever wish there were more hours in the day?

Most of us wake up each morning facing crammed calendars and mile-long to-do lists. From the minute your alarm clock goes off, you already feel overwhelmed and spend the day trying to figure out how to accomplish your daily goals.

If you want to improve your daily routine and feel more productive, here’s what you need to do.

Go to bed and wake up early

Everyone knows that waking up early allows you to have more time to get things done. But it also gives you more time to prepare and focus on yourself before starting your day. We highly recommend spending a few quiet moments to yourself using the Daily Journal or the Essential Notebook each morning.

Create a morning routine

Instead of spending the morning checking your email or social media accounts, create a morning routine to start your day off right. This allows you to have a few additional hours in the day free from distractions. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Turn your phone on “Do Not Disturb”
  • Eat a nutritious breakfast
  • Journaling or creative work
  • Exercise
Set up a schedule

In order to maximize the hours you have in a day, it’s essential to set up a schedule. This will make sure you always know how long you are going to do each task and when to move on to the next. By creating a schedule, you will be able to form habits that will help you get more done. We love using the Daily Planner Insert for this.

Create a to-do list

Before you go to bed, create a to-do list including a list of the most important things you want to accomplish the next day. By getting it down on paper, you’ll be more motivated to start your activities when you wake up in the morning.

Take breaks

Without breaks you will not be able to accomplish the goals you need to complete due fatigue and stress. Sometimes, you have to spend some time relaxing and have a break mentally, emotionally and physically. Use this time to take care of your mind and body with exercise or reading.

Use productivity tools

Find a planner that can help you get more organized in planning, scheduling, delegating, and implementing tasks. We recommend 2 options. One is the Get It Done Planner which gives you a quarter of a year so you aren’t overwhelmed by having to take on 12 months at a time. With the GID Planner, you’ll find all the tools you need to help you achieve your goals and tasks all year long. 

Second is the Daily Planner Insert which is great for those super busy days when you need more room to write out your schedule and a big to-do list. Each page features an hourly schedule on the right side, your top priorities, tasks list, a spot for notes and a section for gratitude and a spot for tracking your productivity, your water intake, and your mood. 90 days are included in each insert.

We are all given 24 hrs a day, however we wonder why some people accomplish more compared to others. The reason is how they spend their time and make the most of it. So, with all the tips as mentioned above, you can start changing your daily routine and be more productive.
