Boost your productivity for the next day by having an evening routine… Here’s what I do:
My evening routine usually takes about 30-60 mins and I try to always do it before bed.
1. Review goals for today
By always asking what could I have done better? You will get in the habit of critically assessing yourself and striving to do everything fast, better and more effectively.
I also take a moment to look at my weekly, monthly and yearly goals to keep them fresh in my mind.
2. Set goals for tomorrow
Before you fall into the trap of I can’t be bothered today, which for me usually occurs about two minutes after waking up, you should get goals and a plan of action for tomorrow and working on sticking to it no matter what you feel like.
I like to write this down as I feel like I’m held more accountable for my actions.
3. Prep anything I need for tomorrow
This is usually food i.e. sandwiches to take to work…
4. Go to bed
The final and most important part is to actually go to bed!
I usually aim for about 6 or 7.5 hours sleep. Read sleep cycles if you want to know why these times.
The last thing I do to get me into the relaxed state ready for sleep is to use a meditative breathing exercise such as breathe in and count to 4, hold for 4, out for 6.
So that’s it for my evening ritual. This helps me be super productive the following day and get lots done.
