Three Habits of Productive Wellness Advocates

Have you ever felt like you’re not being as productive as you’d like to be? Do you sometimes find yourself looking up from your phone and realizing over an hour has gone by? We’ve all experienced the feeling of never having enough time in the day. We look with envy at friends who have done their laundry, been to the gym, and made a flawless French soufflé all before lunch. We all know that everyone has the same amount of time in the day, there are 1440 minutes gifted to us each day and it’s up to us how we use them.

Many of us are not as productive as we could be so I’ve put together a few tips to help you become more productive. My hope is that you take at least one of these ideas and incorporate it into your life. If you do, you’ll be able to save time, be more effective throughout the day, and of course be happier as you achieve more of what you want. Read the tips below and think about how to apply them in your life.

  • Identify time wasters: Time wasters are things that keep you away from your most important tasks. What do you need to stop doing that’s keeping you away from what you want to do? Example of time wasters could be watching too much television or staying awake too long doing nothing productive in the evening when you could simply go to bed and wake up earlier to start your day.
  • Learn to time block: Time blocking is setting a schedule of 15 to 90 minute blocks of time and hyper focusing on one task at a time. Use each block to see how much you can get done on a project in that allotted time. Use longer time blocks (60 to 90 minutes) when you are inviting people to attend a class you are hosting, scheduling one-on-ones for the month, or anything that is going to take a little more time. Use shorter time blocks (15 to 30 minutes) when you check your email, respond to social media, or similar activities. The key is to avoid all distractions during those time blocks.
  • Be around other productive people: Yes! This is a time saver. We have all heard you become who you spend time with. Be around others who are like-minded and care about their productivity, and you will find yourself being more productive. Surround yourself with those who are going after their goals and dreams.
