Maximize Your Day: 1 Hour 30 Minutes At A Time
Have you ever found yourself staring at the clock, wondering where all the time went? Do you often feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done? Fear not, for with these simple tips, you can learn to maximize your day and make every minute count!
Start With A Plan
The first step towards maximizing your day is having a clear plan of what needs to be accomplished. Creating a list of tasks for the day will help you stay organized and focused. Prioritize tasks based on their importance and urgency to ensure that they are completed on time.
Make Use Of Technology
With technology evolving rapidly everyday, there are several tools available that can help increase productivity throughout the day. Consider using apps such as Trello or Asana for task management or RescueTime for monitoring how much time is spent on each activity.
Get Moving In The Morning
Starting off your morning with exercise helps to energize both your body and mind, setting a positive tone for the rest of the day. Whether it’s hitting up a spin class or simply taking a brisk walk around the block, getting moving first thing in morning will help improve your energy levels from dawn till dusk.
It’s easy to get sidetracked when checking emails or getting notifications during work hours but doing so only hinders productivity level. Here’s what we suggest:
Limit Social Media Usage
Scrolling through social media platforms such as Instagram & Facebook should be reserved until after business hours have ended because let’s face it – if it isn’t related workwise – then what good does looking at cat videos do?
Unplug And Disconnect From Notifications
If possible try disconnecting electronic notifications (emails / calls) while working allowing one to fully concentrate promoting productive output without disruptions.
Segment Your Day
Breaking your day into 90-minute segments is a proven productivity technique, allowing you to focus completely on one task at a time while also ensuring that there’s an allotted time for breaks.
Schedule Productive Breaks
Taking breaks throughout the day is essential to maintaining focus and avoiding burnout. A 5-10 minute break every hour ensures that we don’t push ourselves beyond normal physical capabilities by sitting around sedentary for hours. Instead try walking around or stretching during work hours in intervals this results in being able update blood flow promoting better more productive output
Trust The Process
Ultimately, it’s important not to be too hard on yourself when things don’t go as planned. Sticking securely to these guidelines will definitely serve as a framework but allow yourself some flexibility within it – remember, nobody can be expected become superhuman overnight!
Take Advantage Of Dead Time
Dead time refers to pockets of spare minutes scattered throughout the day which often get wasted by simply looking stunned until the next set routine begins! Listed below are tips on how dead-time can turn out beneficial with no struggle:
Multitask During Commute
One of my personal favorite ways when commuting early either going or returning from work (or even walks) putting headphones in and listening audio-books / podcasts effectively make use of your commute while drastically limiting dead – time spent just staring at nothingness!
Make Calls When Walking
Instead using lifts try taking long-distance calls whilst working towards office/building helps improve physical fitness and promotes getting those tasks completed even quicker through call prompts keeping track conversations closer than texts/emails!
Be realistic with regards to goals set throughout each day making sure each task gets adequate attention before moving onto another one so yet much “is done” at all except contemplating doing them over periods instead relishing truthfully accomplishing everything mapped out precisely maximizing our days seems more feasible. Begin with easier, simpler plans at dawn and progressively increase level of difficulty. It doesn’t matter whether you choose to segment your day into 90-minute intervals or opt for some other productivity hack mentioned – every step counts towards embracing a more productive lifestyle overall in the long run!
