Those seeking to live a more productive life should start by re-evaluating how they spend their mornings. After all, mornings set the pace for your entire day. By getting a slow and sleepy start each morning, you significantly hamper your overall productivity. To start your day off on the right foot, here are some easy ways to have a more productive morning.
Keep Your Closet Organized
One of the first things people do in the morning is get dressed. While this task may seem simple enough, it can end up taking up a considerable amount of time if your closet is disorganized. To avoid wasting precious time digging through heaps of clothing to find something to wear, consider re-organizing your closet.
To organize your closet like a pro, start by donating any clothing that doesn’t fit anymore or that you rarely wear. Once you’ve freed up some space, find an organization method that works best for you. Whether that’s by color, by types of clothing, or by frequency of wear—get sorting. You’d be surprised by how much time a well-organized closet can save you in the morning.
Put Your Phone Out Of Reach
If you’re a person who reaches for their phone immediately after waking up and then spends several minutes in bed scrolling through social media, you may want to choose a different resting place for your device.
Instead of keeping your phone right next to you, consider putting it somewhere out of reach. In doing so, you won’t be tempted to waste time lying in bed on your phone when you could be doing something more productive. Instead, you’ll be more likely to get up and get going.
Eat A Healthy Breakfast
There is a reason why people refer to breakfast as the most important meal of the day. Skipping breakfast in the morning could be taking a toll on your productivity. While you may not feel hungry in the morning, it’s important to eat at least a small breakfast, such as fruit, a handful of nuts, yogurt, or an egg.
After fasting throughout the night while you sleep, your body needs some food to provide it with energy. By skipping breakfast, you’ll likely feel unenergized and lethargic, which will impede how productive you are throughout the day.
