Everyone has some kind of daily routine. They prefer to do one thing before another in the morning, and it helps them get set up for the day. You should enjoy your daily routine, since you’re going to be doing it repeatedly and you can tweak it after monitoring it for awhile to ensure it provides a great start (or end) to your day.
If you don’t enjoy it, you need to make some adjustments until you’re happy with the way each day progresses. It can be hard for you to make the change in your daily routine at first.
If you already have something set in place, you probably don’t want to change it around, even if you’re not too happy about it. However, this is a change you’ll have to make if you want to be more successful, because a positive spirit and outlook is key to your success.
In order to have a better daily routine, you should journal about how your routine is working and keep track of any adjustments you make – no matter how small. One thing you should keep track of in your routine is how long it takes you each day.
Most people have routines that they do in the morning and a different one at night, so you should see if it takes more or less time each day. Chances are, you might be able to make it more efficient so that you’re able to spend more time either working or relaxing, whichever you need more of.
You should also keep track of certain statistics related to your daily routine. A very important number to track is your hours of sleep per night. Many people like to think that they can get away with 5 or less hours of sleep per night, but truly, it’s very unhealthy and can lead to some serious problems later on.
It can cause you to become exhausted easier, and can even contribute to things like weight gain. Make minor adjustments in your schedule to see if it helps you in your day. You might eat breakfast before you brush your teeth, or shower in the evening instead of the morning.
Sometimes you’ll find that you don’t like it as much as your old routine, but there’s a chance you might discover that you’re really liking the new way because it gives you more time elsewhere.
The real key to a good daily routine is efficiency. You should be keeping track of how long it takes you to get through these routines and how easy they are, because if it’s not really working for you, you need to make those changes.
