How to Be Successfully Productive Today

  • Wake up with a positive attitude. You must give yourself reasons why today will be a great day. Perhaps you will be visiting a museum with your school, catching up with an old friend, or simply going to your favorite restaurant for lunch. No matter what your reason is, it will give you a great outlook on your life and help you in being productive today.
  • Eat a healthy, balanced breakfast. Follow this example throughout the day with lunch and dinner, knowing that you made an effort to eat healthy will be extremely rewarding. Your body and brain will be very thankful.
  • Write up a list of objectives for the day (or week). Make sure to list according to priorities. Begin with something that needs to be done before all others to remove stressful moments from your day. It's also important that you balance the workload of your list. Place simple, easy tasks between the larger and more strenuous ones.
  • Do a good deed. Even the smallest things can go a long way making everyone involved happy people. Helping a stranger haul their groceries into the transit bus or picking up a mitten someone dropped can leave a smile on your face for the rest of the day. Remember to take action, don't just watch as so many of us tend to do.
  • Be active. This could mean any form of exercise, even in the slightest. Anything counts if you're embarking on a different route, rather than the lazy alternative. Get off the bus a stop early and walk a longer distance if there's no rush to get to your destination, or opt for the stairs rather than the elevator.
  • Tackle any one household chore. Anything from sweeping the bedroom floor to taking out the garbage to doing a load of laundry, counts. Small jobs done on a daily basis will help you feel more productive and less tired than taking on an entire list of chores in one day.
  • Organize for your future. Focusing on life ahead will provide you with a sense of relief as you will feel better prepared for what lies ahead. You can file your mail from the past week, set up automatic bill payments, or do homework for a class you don't have until next week.
