Do you want to make the most of every day?? To be productive? is that what you want?
So today I wanted to share some tips on how to make the most of EVERY day. Figure out what’s making you unhappy/stressed and take steps (right now) to change it. Plan, plan, plan. “Life is Short, Make the Most out of it.”
1. WAKE UP EARLY
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” – Ben Franklin
First and foremost, when you wake up early in the morning, you get a peace of mind.It sets your day in the right set of mind.
The benefit of waking up early is it gets you a great start for the day, because when you wake up early, you actually create more time to do something good, something positive in the morning. Meditation, exercise, yoga, or have a good healthy breakfast, which gives you a great start for the day in a very positive and productive way.
2. VISUALIZE YOUR DAY
Visualization techniques help elite athletes perform better, and we can do the same thing to improve our workdays.
The practice has even given some high achievers what seem like superpowers, helping them create their dream lives by accomplishing one goal or task at a time with hyper focus and complete confidence. It activates your creative subconscious, the law of attraction, programs your brain, and builds your internal motivation.
3. PLAN YOUR MEALS
By planning in advance, you can aim to have nutritionally well-balanced meals throughout the week. A healthy eating plan will lower your risk for heart diseases and other health conditions eventually making you fit with a glamorous body. If you have to come up with something to eat last minute, you’ll find yourself probably going out for dinner instead.
As a result, you are most likely to end up exceeding your daily calorie and sodium intake!
4. FIND THE GOOD
Every day may not be good, but there is something good every day. Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder. Love this! See more. The good things always are worth it!
5. DO THINGS YOU LOVE
When we do what we love we actually are more likely to be successful, happier, and healthier. If you don’t want to work a single day in your life, then you should start doing the things which you really love and make your living with that work. Don’t let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love.
Here are some tips for doing what you love for a living…
- Do some soul searching.
- Make time to make it happen.
- Figure out how to profit from your passion.

- Don’t wait around.
6. MAKE TIME FOR REST

If you arrive somewhere early, take a minute before you’re supposed to go in to take a breath and calm yourself. Remind. If appropriate, create a reminder alarm (with a peaceful chime) on your phone to go off throughout the day. Unplug. Wake up.Take a good 30 minutes each morning for yourself to read, write, meditate, exercise and/or practice gratitude. These rest + relaxation ideas condition you to make time for yourself, and make “YOU” a priority.

8. SET DAILY TASKS
To accomplish your goals, however, you need to know how to set them. You can’t simply say, “I want” and expect it to happen.By setting daily tasks for the whole day will actually make your day fully organized. You cannot be wasting your time to think about what are you supposed to do for the whole time.Taking only 10 minutes everyday to set your goals can make your day productive. Take a pen and paper or notepad and do checklists for your everyday goal.
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
9. BE PRESENT
Learning to be present cures a lot of ills and prevents them from happening in the first place.“Live in the moment”, “Be present”: that’s how to be happy, apparently.
Living in the moment—also called mindfulness—is a state of active, open, intentional attention on the present. When you become mindful, you realize that you are not your thoughts; you become an observer of your thoughts from moment to moment without judging them.
10. GET DAILY MOVEMENT
“ Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.”
You lead busy a life, and finding time to stay healthy is tough. Fortunately, all you need is 20 minutes of exercise per day to get fit. Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, boost your health and have fun. Aim for at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity exercise, or 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise.
Exercises will help you look better too. Add them to your daily workouts and you can feel the difference in your metabolism, looks,mind and body.
11. LET GO OF THE NEGATIVE
At times we all have those negative or “unwanted” feelings and emotions such as fear, anxiety, anger and the like, or feel bored and troubled– even depressed.
Let Go Of Negative Feelings. Allow yourself to feel what your body is naturally feeling. Experience the emotion; hold on to it for 5 minutes. Accept the emotion and that you experienced it. Take a mental step back from the issue that caused the emotion. With a clear mind, breathe deeply until you feel the positive thoughts ingraining within you and your soul.
12. SPREAD KINDNESS
Adding a dose of compassion to someone else’s day not only uplifts their spirits, but makes you feel happier, too. And while most of us intend to be compassionate beings every day, our hectic schedules and busy lives can often get in the way of simply being kind to one another.It doesn’t take much to turn someone’s day around. A smile, a compliment, a small gesture. Here are 10 simple ways to spread kindness today…
- Really listen – David Ausburger once said, “Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable”.
- Share a book that changed your life – If something you read had a profound and positive impact on your life, why not spread the word? Encourage as many people as possible to tap into that same source of wisdom and inspiration.
- Share a meal – Invite people over to share in the (delicious) fruits of your labor.
- Show up – If your friend is holding birthday drinks, or it’s their band’s first gig, or they’re desperately keen to start a book club, show up. But you never know how much it will mean to them to have your company and support.
- Be openly appreciative – Tell your nearest and dearest how much you love them. Smile and have a chat with the shop assistant serving you. Thank people whenever they invite you to something, help you out, teach you a lesson or generally brighten your day.
Therefore, make the most out of every day by these methods.
