How Can You Be More Productive?

I thought I would share a few things with you guys that I do to be more productive!

For me it’s really important as I almost always have a list of things I want to get done, and sometimes the laziness just kicks in. But the feeling of knowing I could have done so many things but end up with nothing done and everything left by the end of the day is never a good one. The best feeling however – is when everything important is done and you can just spend the rest of the day doing anything you feel like. If you’re struggling a bit I hope this can help!

PLANNING.

This is number one. You need to plan! Everything will go so much more smoothly and you won’t be stressed out trying to do a thousand things at the same time, not even knowing where to start or finish.

My best tip would be to bring out your planner (buy one if you don’t have one), and on Sunday’s you spend some time planning your week. Make coffee, tea and put on some music – you don’t need to spend much time on it and it’s a very good feeling when you’re a bit more organised and prepared for the upcoming week.

I would also recommend just going over and writing down what you want to achieve in the upcoming month when it’s the last Sunday of the month. It keeps you motivated!

WAKE UP EARLY.

Sorry to all the people really struggling with waking up early, but it is honestly necessary to be productive. You’re going to work, but still have a lot of other things you want to get done? You’re trying to create something of your own on the side? You’re trying to finish a book or study more? Maybe you just have tons of different chores and tasks to do? Wake up earlier than the rest of the world. You already know what you have to get done for today, you made the plan and now it’s time to do it. Don’t wait until the evening because you’ll be tired and unfocused – you might not even stick through and do any of it. Your brain is more focused in the morning, you’re rested and ready to learn, grow and achieve new things. The tough thing is actually getting out of bed, but when you’re up -make a nice breakfast, coffee or whatever you like, light some candles and put on some music. It always helps! Yes I do love the coffee and music thing… Works for everything.

Just remember: If you’re working a 9-5 but have a dream about running your own business or just doing something else, don’t forget to prioritize your qualities and strength to your own thing before you go on and use the rest of your energy for someone else’s business. Sometimes that means waking up at 5am. 

GIVE YOURSELF A REWARD.

I mean… It always helps, doesn’t it? It’s not healthy for your body or mind to live your life from a list of things you “need” to do. But there are still things you need to do, that’s just how it is. So give yourself the time of day to just do whatever you feel like. Make sure you don’t sit behind a laptop trying to get something done all day until you just need to go to bed. It depends what you are trying to do in life, but let’s just say you always put aside time for yourself and the ones you love. If you have a job or school and then a also other work that you want to get done for yourself and a business or something else, you set a time for when you stop the “work day” completely. Say that at 18.00 those days – you stop. No more work and no more lists. It’s important for your brain to rest, it’s important for you to feel happy and enjoy every day even though you have things to do. It also makes you work more efficiently that day because you know what time you’ll put all the work away. Also remember that not everyday should be a day where you have “things to do”. Keep some days completely off, from everything. It’s healthy ❤

Watch This on Netflix!

I know the struggle of not knowing what to watch, or even just wondering if the show or movie you’re about to press play on is going to be worth it or a waste of your time. So I thought I could share some of my favourites with you guys!

  • You. Starting off with this one as I feel like most of you guys have already watched it, but if you haven’t you know what to do. For sure some kind of a thriller, and it constantly surprises you – but I feel like even people who don’t normally want to watch thrillers would still enjoy it. There’s some normal teenage drama added to it as well.

 

  • Sex Education. Yessss. I love series like this. It’s for sure more comedy, but also goes into deeper struggles that we all can come across at some stage in our lives, especially as teenagers. Eric is my absolute favourite, he literally makes the series what it is.

 

  • FYRE. Where you really get to see what happened with the Fyre Festival that ended up just being a big fraud. Very interesting to watch. I also feel like you can see how fake the Billy guy is from the very beginning, how he talks and his body language – it all seems so insincere. Anyone else feeling the same??

 

  • The Ted Bundy Tapes. Currently watching this one. I had to as the true crime “fan” I am. It always feels so wrong to say fan? What’s a better word? Anyways, I’ve heard his name but did not know too much. It really is crazy. But the craziest thing is how everyone acts around him, it’s almost like he has this thing of making everyone like him despite everything he has done. Even the freaking judge in the trial, the girls sending him letters and coming to court – just all of it. Like how in the world did he get to act the way he did at court and the judge still basically said admiring words about him?! So, so wrong. And all the other things of course… I don’t want to spoil it for you guys. I recommend watching it, even if it’s just a wakeup call to what kind of people exists. Because it’s not just him and that’s the sad truth – there’s terrible people out there.

So that’s the one’s I can recommend for you guys to definitely spend some time watching! I of course have some bad ones to share with you guys as well. I just really appreciate having some less quality series for while I am editing or anything else that requires my attention, and I just want something simple to have on in the background. I won’t go into big details, I mean – you like random and simple series now and then if you’re painting your nails or tanning or whatever; try these:

Dynasty, Grace and Frankie, The Good Place (this is actually good),  The American Meme, Follow This, Great News, 3 Wives One Husband (yes I did watch it), Love, Friends from College (this is better than most of the other things I wrote down here), and Easy.

I’ll just end it there. I will not take any responsibility for you enjoying any of the ones I just wrote down over here, but I mean, you could try it. If you’re doing something else at the same time at least.

You’re welcome! Tell me if you like any of these, if you’re going to watch them or if you have something I should watch! Thanks ❤
