Posted on May 05 2017
How would you like to supercharge your productivity? Sometimes it can feel that there are only so many hours in the day. Well, that we can’t change. However, we can help you to give your day the best possible start so that you are ready to face anything.
Here are 6 rituals that you can introduce to your daily routine to supercharge your productivity:
Meditation is no new discipline; it has been around for literally thousands of years. It has however recently had somewhat of a resurgence, Transcendental Meditation (TM) in particular, in part due to numerous high-profile celebrities boasting it as being in their daily routine. Russel Brand has called it "a shower for your brain", and Jerry Seinfeld, “like a phone charger, for your mind and body”. In essence, in TM you use a mantra to free your mind from conscious thought, promoting a state of relaxed awareness. Its benefits boast clarity of thought, creativity and a calmness that can help you approach any task.
- Get Moving
As little as 7 minutes of exercise in the morning has been proven to energise you, reduce stress and anxiety and give you a better night sleep. Think of it as a way of physically waking up all areas and muscles in your body, so that are ready face the day ahead. Although a full workout in the gym is great, a 10-minute jog or bike ride, or simply walking the dog are great ways to kick off the day with exercise.
- Pick Your 3 Wins
Writing down your three most important goals of the day in the morning will help you focus on what counts. We all have long to-do lists, but prioritising your main 3 objectives of the day that must be achieved gives you focus. Writing these before you leave for work, while eating breakfast is a great time, and will give you your journey to work to think through them in more detail.
- Hydrate Yourself
Whenever looking to take care of your body, drinking water is key. We wake so thirstily each morning because we perspire so much during sleep (studies have shown up to 1L each night). Staying hydrated is key to being focussed, and drinking a full glass of water in the morning before anything else, will help to wake up your body and leave you feeling naturally energised.
- Feed Your Mind
Reading newspapers in the morning or watching the news is a great way to catch up on current affairs, however, with so much negativity in the media, this may not be the best way to set your day up for success. Getting through a couple of chapters of a good book, listening to a podcast or even watching an inspiring YouTube video, can feed your mind with a boost of motivation that can carry on throughout the day.
- Eat Green
We all know that breakfast is known to be the most important meal of the day.
