The ideal morning is within reach. Start by tracking your time and noticing where you can cut down in order to accommodate a morning routine. Visualize what your ideal morning would be and make sure you have enough time for everything you’d like to do. Consider logistics and slowly integrate the habits you wish to adopt. Keep it adaptable to outside forces until it’s just as you’d like it. To have a more productive weekend, plan ahead and make a list of activities that will keep you excited and looking forward. Schedule in rest time too. To be productive at work, notice when you’re actually working on your time tracking sheet. Plan your priorities, cut out distractions, and nurture your career capital. Finally, make sure you’re noticing your wins and improvements to make for a happy day-to-day life.
