8 Ways to Have a More Productive Week

Well, now is the time to turn your unproductive week into a very productive week. I know how it feels to be unproductive and feel like you are wasting your time.

In this post, you will learn eight tips you can start implementing right now to have a more productive week!

Let's get onto the tips.

1. Drink More Water

If you aren't drinking enough water, you will feel dehydrated and maybe even have a headache! You don't want that. So, when you wake up in the morning tomorrow, have a bottle of water next to your bed, and take a drink of water immediately.

2. Don't go on Your Phone or Laptop First Thing

If you go on your phone or laptop first thing, when you wake up in the morning, how tempted are you to click Pinterest or Instagram?

Yep, I thought so. Whenever I go on my laptop in the morning, I always click on Blogger or Pinterest, or something that will waste a few minutes of my morning. We don't want that!

3. Exercise in the Morning

In the summer, I wake up in the morning and go on a walk or do some yoga after or before breakfast. This is a great way to wake yourself up and get ready for the morning.

If you have to go to work or to school right away, and you don't have time to exercise, then find a way to exercise during your break for just ten minutes.

4. Eat a Healthy Breakfast (or Actually Eat Breakfast 😊)

Yes, I know that you are busy, but you should take some time and eat a healthy breakfast, so you don't feel tired and unproductive later in the day (or just plain hungry. 😊).

5. Keep a Running To-Do List

If a planner doesn't work for you, then you can try a bullet journal or a running to-do list. A running to-do list is a to-do list that you just add and cross out tasks whenever you finish them.

6. Actually, Use Your Planner

How much do I need to say about this one? If you actually use your planner, you will feel more productive, and you will have your to-do list done.

You could even try time-blocking to schedule your tasks. I don't do time-blocking because I feel like it would be too restrictive to time-block every hour of my day, but it might be something you want to look into.

7. Track How Much Time You Spend on Your Phone

You don't want to get distracted. Right? So next time when you go on your phone, set a timer, for thirty minutes, and then when the alarm goes off, put your phone down and do something productive.

8. Stand up and Walk Around for Ten Minutes

Sometimes when you are feeling unproductive, you just need to stand up and walk around for a few minutes and then you can sit back down and finish your task feeling more refreshed and ready to do it.

This will just help you to take a little break and get some exercise too!
