Hi everyone, Andreia here from LifeMakeupStyle,
I am here today with tips on how to ensure you have a more productive day. There are days that I find it really difficult to be productive especially now that I am a stay at home mum. So I came up with 5 things that I do everyday to make sure that everyday is productive and that I get everything done. So keep reading to find out my tips on how you can become more productive.
Prep the night before
Every evening before I go to bed I spend 15 to 20 mins preparing for the next day. In order to prepare for the next day I write out my to-do list, I get my outfit and the babies outfit ready for the following day and I prepare my mug for my morning coffee by setting it ready next to a full kettle, so in the morning all i have to do is turn the kettle on and pour the water in my mug.
2. Take breaks
It is important to take time for yourself throughout the day so you don’t over run yourself. So take breaks during your day. I always take a break when my little one naps. I grab myself a coffee and a snack and I just watch something on TV.
3. Stay hydrated
Its important to drink between 2 to 3 litres of water per day. Water helps maintain your energy on a high which in turns means you will be able to get a lot more done during the day. Check out this blog post for ideas on how to stay hydrated. Water glorious water
4.Concentrate On ONE Task At A Time
I know what you must be thinking. At first I thought its was impossible but you will feel more productive if you follow this tip. How you ask? Well if you are doing 2-3 different things all at the same time you are likely going to finish the day with those things only partially done. If you concentrate on one task at a time, yes you probably wont get as many done in a 24hour period but the ones you do get done will be 100% complete.
5.Reflect On The Day
At the end of the day when I’m preparing for the next day I like to look back on the day that has just ended and I think about what I could have done to make it better. I will also go through my to do list and anything that i was able to get done I will move over to the next day.
Since becoming a parent I have tried to be more organized and have found the above tips have really helped me achieve this. Have you got any tips for me? Leave them in the comments
