1. Start With A To Do List
Start by making a To Do List of all the things you want to accomplish in a day. And I don’t mean the things you have to do at a certain time (that comes later). These are the things that you need to do but don’t necessarily have to do at any given time.
2. Use A Planner
Start creating a schedule. This could be a physical planner, like one you used in school, or you could create one digitally. Google Calendar works great for this, not just reminders of appointments months down the line. This is where you put in the specific times.
3. Give Yourself Plenty of Time
Give yourself plenty of leeway especially at first. If your morning commute only takes 30 minutes, give yourself 45 on your schedule. This will give you plenty of time in case something goes wrong.
4. Be Detailed But Don’t Overdo It
You want to be detailed with your schedule, but don’t overdo it. Try using block times for certain daily things that you will do every day. You don’t have to put everything in your morning routine on your schedule, but you can use an hour block labeled as morning routine so it's in your schedule. Be detailed where it matters.
5. Give Yourself Time To Relax
Give yourself time to relax. Have a designated time for the day where you don’t have to do a specific thing. Even if it is only an hour. This will lead to less stress and leave you feeling motivated. Knowing you get time to whine down will let your brain know that everything you are doing is worth it.
6. Put The Important Things First
Put the things that are most important on your list first. That way you know you will get them done. This also will leave your feeling motivated, because you are getting things done.
7. Be Realistic
Be realistic about your schedule. You only have so much time in a day. If you look at your schedule and are feeling overwhelmed, find things to cut out. What’s not important and can be moved to another day or even cut out all together.
