As we enter the last fortnight of the year 2022, there are several things we can do to start the next one on an optimistic note. No matter how the current year has treated you, there can always be improvements made in 2023. However, let’s not wait until the 1st of January to make any resolutions.
Instead, using the last remaining 15 days of this year to form a balanced schedule can take you a leap ahead in productivity. Without any further delays, let’s get right to how you can start the new year as a winner.
- Plan your day: One of the biggest productivity hacks you need to implement in your waking life is scheduling. Chatting out your day in advance has several benefits. For one, the element of surprise of sudden events can derail your life by bringing uncertainty. However, with your day planned with enough buffer time in hand, you can easily navigate day-to-day tasks and challenges with ease. Take the time to write down your daily plans the night before and review them in the morning to get more done.
- Create nourishing meals: Cutting out detrimental ingredients from your meals such as excessive spice and sodium can work wonders on your health. To start 2023 on the healthiest note, bring a change in your diet. Switch out junk foods for healthier meals that nourish your body. A great idea would be to integrate seasonal fruits and vegetables into your meals so that you receive greater nutritional benefits. A balanced diet as well as healthy snacking can change your physique!
- Prioritize your mind and body: While we pay attention to our financial gains and surround all the habits to boost productivity, let’s not forget the organ that makes it all possible. Your mind and mental health need to be in top condition to consistently be successful in life. Hence, paying attention to mental health disorders like anxiety and depression is essential. Since cannabinoids are known to bring a positive shift, there are several products you can try. If you’re a seasoned user already, try exploring different kinds of options like bongs, beakers, and tubes to make your experience more fruitful.
- Take time to stretch your limbs: Combining healthy habits, a good diet, and proper mental hygiene with exercise is the key to a happy life. No matter how busy your day looks, make time to stretch for 20-30 minutes. It will reduce your stress levels, improve your optimism, and release feel-good hormones in the body. If you’re looking for ways to integrate stretching into your schedule, try yoga flows and general stretches to get more blood flowing through your body.
- Work in short intervals: The secret to heightened productivity is understanding how the mind in today’s environment works! Learn to get work done in short bursts of time with small breaks to keep your focus consistent. It is seen that deep work can help you tick many tasks off your list rather than mulling over the same job for an extended period of time.
To end on a positive note, we’d suggest our readers to journal all the things they are grateful for this year and all the things they need to work on. Let these pages fuel your improved lifestyle for a strong start to 2023!
