HIGH friends! We trust that your year is off to a great start. If you’re anything like us, you’ve undoubtedly made a promise or two to yourself to make 2019 incredible. Stick to your guns and keep those promises to yourself with a few of our favorite tips to help you get (and stay) on track.
1. Make Physical To-Do Lists
Sometimes a good ol’ fashioned pen to paper can keep you organized, help visualize what needs to be done for the day, and keep you accountable. Not to mention the sweet physical sensation of crossing those tedious to-do’s off of the list rather than the hazy oblivion from countless digital distractions.
Pro-Tip: Used colored markers to add a little pizzazz to that to-do list
2. Use a Timer App
Getting screen fatigue and not sure where your day is going? Using a timer app can help structure your time by setting limits on how much time goes into a particular project. Working on social media? Set a timer for 10-15 minutes as you “like”, comment and post to avoid mindless scrolling! Overwhelmed by your inbox? Spend 20 minutes a day answering those lingering email conversations or unsubscribe from distracting spam.
Pro-Tip: Stay in shape and set an alarm that goes off every 2 hours and do 50 squats with a friend! Fresh circulation can help keep your brain in tip-top shape
3. More Sleep & More Water = Better Work
Nix the late nights and get to bed earlier! You’ll wake up refreshed and ready to rock that to-do list. Make sure you always have water handy. Getting in the habit of bringing a jar or water bottle to work will help remind you to hydrate which in turn aids in focus and general well being.
Pro-Tip: Decorate your water bottles with stickers and decals from your favorite brands!
