4 Easy Ways to be Super Productive
Productivity and a creative mind are simultaneous cross currents, it’s true. But they don’t have to be. It took me a little research on what worked for others and practice with time managment to be able to appease both sides of my brain.
Below are 4 of my tried and true basic techniques.
1. Have a routine.
I work for myself and as challenging as it is to stay diligent and operate within a routine, I find that when I do I’m more peaceful, which equals more productivity. Doing the planning is half the battle. I started with this video from Marie Forleo: Work Life Balance; Create Your Work From Home Schedule. Check it out!
2. Get moving and exercise.
Even if it’s 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill, it will shift my frequency. I have found that some stresses can be alleviated with meditation. Others require me to get moving. Knowing the difference has been a process and has gotten clearer with time. I’m sure it will be the same with you!
I get the most clear truths about myself, my needs and my intentions through daily journaling. You might remember what I wrote about it in this post Will Write for Makeup. It’s come to be a form of meditation. I get irritable and heavy if I go too many days without doing it.
4. Have fun!
All work and no play makes Kris a dull girl. I read this EVERYWHERE and it’s still the hardest part to incorporate into all the rest of my life. I see my friends mostly when they’re helping me with my daughter because I have to work to keep my income flowing. Making it easy to put my inner child on the back burner. So I pick one day a week (most weeks) and detach and do something OFFLINE. I come back twice as charged and inspired to execute that next great idea!
I hope this helps.
