7 PRODUCTIVITY HACKS TO MAKE YOU WORK LIKE A MASTERMIND
1. SET UP A WORKOUT ROUTINE
If you are getting back to exercising, after COVID-19, maintaining a workout routine could be a challenge. Creating the best workout schedule will require a lot of considerations, from age, weight, fitness level, and workout goals. You need to try a number of workout routines to find the one that suits you best. Lately, HIIT, a full body workout is becoming increasingly popular and it is quite effective if your goal is to lose weight. Personally, I feel any workout whether it's a brisk walk, Zumba, HIIT, or aerobics, following it daily is the key.
2. EAT A NUTRITIOUS BREAKFAST
A car doesn't work without fuel and a body can't work without breakfast. This is an absolute truth.
Due to the fast-paced life that we live in, most of us skip this essential part of kickstarting a productive day. That is why I humbly invite you to join the breakfast club.
If you want your productivity to shoot up to 100%, eat a nutritious breakfast every morning. This will supercharge your body for the day ahead and keep you fresh all day long.
Many studies have linked eating breakfast to good health, including better memory and concentration, lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, and lower chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, and being overweight. Talk about endless breakfast benefits!
3. HAVE A CLEAR VISION
Whenever I am working, I can't start if I don't have a clear vision. Having a good idea of how the final product will look is absolutely necessary. With a clear vision, you can work faster and your skills and time are being rightly utilized for development. For example, if you are thinking of writing an email, think of the tone, the voice, and what exactly you want to communicate with the recipient of your email. Make sure to devote time to creating a clear vision of what it is you are doing, so time isn’t wasted along the way with ideas, and half-formed projects being tossed out.
4. PLAN YOUR DAY WELL
Believe me, planning will take you a long way! Also, those cute colored binders and planners make planning all the more fun! For a productive day, a mini planning session that gives an overview of your entire day is vital.
That feeling when you finish a BIG task and tick it off your planner is just so liberating. You aim at finishing certain tasks every day and planning in advance will help you in completing them in order to achieve your goals and dreams.
To know what you have to do each day and when you have to do it is an amazing action plan to achieve success. So trust me, buy those cute printed or digital 2020 planners you have been eyeing for a while, and start organizing your day with an outstanding plan. Do you need some suggestions, then you must visit Leaders in Heels, If you are a budding entrepreneur and need to create a to-do list to crush your goals, this planner works best for you (also one of my favorites!). The design is sure to reboot and rejuvenate you for the entire day
5. BATCH SIMILAR TASKS TOGETHER
I love batching. It is one of my newly discovered productivity hacks. Batching is grouping similar tasks together when you are planning your day. For example, you want to schedule a post for social media, which would include, designing the social media post, writing a caption for it, checking the best time to post it, and checking analytics after it is posted. All these tasks can be combined and batched together making room for better concentration. Batching will improve your productivity by two-fold in comparison to when you do dissimilar tasks together.

6. MAKE TIME FOR SELF CARE
Self-care is one aspect that can boost your productivity to a great extent. Bubble baths, spa days, and eating healthy are tried and tested self-care activities. Ayurveda is one such holistic health care science from India that focuses on your well being and self-care. Your skin deserves relaxation and a day off too. From the goodness of nature, iYura Manjish Glow Elixir by the Ayurveda Experience is a treat for your skin. Every woman dreams of that beautiful, supple golden glow for her skin like you see in those advertisements on television, the iYura Elixir is sure to give you that bright glow.

7. ORGANIZE YOUR OFFICE
Imagine walking into your office and the first thing you see is a messy office desk? Do you think your mind will be productive after that? I don't think so. An unorganized office is a big hindrance in reaching optimized productivity levels. I feel an easy solution to organizing your office can be to find a home for all the things on your desk. Pens in the pen holder, files in the cabinet, and papers in the drawers. Also, labeling things will make it easier to find what you are looking for when you are in a hurry. As a rule, at the end of your day when you are leaving office, take five minutes to clean your desk. You will wake up fresher and walk into your office with enthusiasm. After all, an organized office desk helps you save time by reducing how long it takes to search for the things you need.
And there you go, you had a well planned 100% productive morning. That wasn't hard, was it? You just had to make some teeny weeny changes. After this, every morning of yours will feel accomplished and complete. Let me know in the comments if these hacks worked well for you...
