We’re a month into the lockdown and many of us are working at home, relying fervently on sporadic bursts of motivation to carry us through days that seem to blur together. Yes, this can be so frustrating.
Thankfully, there are content creators on YouTube who know just how to crack through the haze, advocating for a curated mode of productivity. The throughline? It’s not so much what you do, but when you do it. As it turns out, mornings are crucial to how your days will turn out. Whether you’re a morning person or not shouldn’t matter, because everyone has a right to a productive and mindful day.
Not convinced yet? Bejamin Spall, co-author of My Morning Routine: How Successful People Start Every Day Inspired, told Forbes in an interview that “The most common elements of the most successful morning routines are their ability to be simple and easy to follow.”
That said, don't hesitate to turn your back on unnecessary, oppressive late nights that’ll leave you dejected and limp when you wake up just in time for brunch. Abandon rushed breakfasts and a mind cluttered with backlog. Start over and re-energize yourself with these simple, no-frills productivity pegs.
