Drinking it in an empty stomach will ensure maximum absorption. As it is filled with antioxidants, vitamin C, and potassium.
Don’t Check Your Phone Right After Waking Up
When you dive straight into WhatsApp, emails and Facebook, you lose focus and your morning succumbs to the requirements of other people. It is important to save those valuable moments of your day to do something that soothes your mind and sets a positive tone for your whole day. Jumping straight to your phone or laptop has no good effects on your day. However, exercising, meditating and yoga, all are a few great ways to start your productive day.
Eat a Healthy Breakfast
Eating healthy foods in the morning is something that can put you ahead of the game. Those who eat proper breakfast are less likely to be obese, they are healthier, have more stamina, stable blood-sugar levels, and they tend to be more active during the day. It is because when you eat a healthy breakfast, you will feel more energetic, it improves your short-term memory, helps you focus more intensely on your tasks, and helps you stay productive for longer periods.
Set Clear Goals
Establishing concrete goals will give you the right direction, confidence and sense of ownership. Setting goals for the day puts your entire day into motion. It is important to narrow down to a few realistic goals that can easily be achieved.
Create To-Do Lists
To-do lists are very helpful when it comes to organize your tasks more efficiently. A to-do list gives you a clear picture of tasks that you need to get done. When you add deadlines to your to-do list, it will become more effective. It pushes you to avoid multitasking and procrastination at work and motivates you to complete all your assigned tasks within the allotted time. There are many free task management tools online that have to-do lists feature and allow you to scrutinize what is important and what is not so that you can easily prioritize your tasks accordingly. There is no reason to establish goals in the morning if you forget them. Therefore, set aside time to create to-do list and check the progress of your projects with a critical eye. If you feel that you are overburdened or missing your deadlines, try to adjust your goals and your tasks so that you can move deliberately throughout your day.
Stay on Track
Believe it or not, meetings are the biggest time waster, as they can ruin your whole productive day. Smart people utilize their morning hours efficiently and stick to their schedule to get more things completed. Don’t drag your meetings unnecessarily, otherwise it will ruin your entire day.
Say No to Multitask
Multitasking is less productive than doing a single task. Though it feels like more interesting to do two or more things at a time, but trust me, you will lose focus more easily. However, there are some people who have a special power to multitask. They have tendency to juggle multiple tasks at once and they believe it will help improve their performance. However, there are some people who find it difficult to multitask as they find it difficult to organize their thoughts and sort out relevant information. It reduces their productivity and performance, as your brain can only focus one thing at a time. And when you try to multitask, your brain start losing focus and the capacity to perform so many tasks with more focus.
Wrapping it Up
The right and healthy morning habits can make your day ultra-productive. Doing some tweaks to your routine can amazingly improve your entire day and take your productivity to a whole new level.
