Most people have read or heard about the optimizing their mornings but 99% of them fail to actually take the effort to work on it. I am sure most of you have heard this phrase -
If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you need to do is wake up! - J.M Power
That's why I decided to share these 3 mistakes that can totally help you spike your productivity throughout the day. Trust me, I used to make the same mistakes until I decided to change for good.
I cannot stress on how important it is for you to dump all your ideas on to a sheet in the morning itself. When you do that, you regain lot of brain power that would have rather been used up in remembering the tasks throughout the day.
There are several methods to build the habit of To-Do lists such as using sticky notes and maintaining sheets.
When I began using To-Do lists, I couldn't find a perfect solution, so I created a simple application called Brutask (https://brutask.com/) to manage my to-do lists. It's free to use so do give a try and see if that works for you!
Okay coffee lovers, don't pounce on me yet.
Drinking coffee (in limit quantities of course) in itself isn't wrong. However, the timing you choose can surely have an impact on your body. According to a medical study, the stress hormones in your body are at its highest levels in the early hours. Drinking coffee further pushes these levels, thus increasing your stress without you realizing it.
Try drinking coffee between 10am to 12pm or 2pm to 5pm, when your cortisol stress levels are the lowest.
Relax, You are just one human! Do you know that multitasking can actually reduce your productivity? If you choose to focus on one task with dedication, you will get more work done in less amount of time.
The best way to overcome this issue is to make 40-60 minute blocks of time and focusing on single task during that duration. Also, try taking 15 minute breaks between 2 working blocks.
Now that you know these three mistakes, don't just bookmark or upvote it. Execute on it and make the difference for yourself!
