  1. Eat The Right Foods We’ve all heard the saying, “you are what you eat.” It sounds silly, but it’s true. When you put the right types of fuel into your body, you will feel better, look better, and perform better.
  2. Stop Multitasking While it may seem like you get more done while multitasking, you don’t.
  3. Work Smarter – Efficiency is the name of the game. Why do something the hard way when you can do it the easy way. Take advantage of technology when possible. The goal is to work smarter, not harder.
  4. Prioritize Your Life – Take the time to prioritize what you need to do. Make the important things your top priority.
  5. Create A Routine – Routines keep people grounded. When you create a schedule and stick to it, you know what to expect and it’s easier to manage your time.
  6. Build Good Habits – Take the time to create good habits. When you fully commit to something over time, eventually you will form a habit that can help you accomplish more.
  7. Take A Break – Whether you need 15 minutes of outside time or you deserve a big vacation, taking a break can help you relax, refresh, and refocus.
  8. Exercise Our bodies are meant to move. Try to exercise everyday. When your body feels good, you’ll feel good.
  9. Drink More Water –  Drink more water and it will help you stay healthy. When you feel healthy, it’s easier to do what you need to do.
  10. Eliminate Distractions Turn off the ping on your phone when someone likes your latest Instagram post. Limit the amount of time you are on social media. Invest in a pair of ear plugs to blog out the noisy neighbor. Determine what is distracting you and figure out how to fix it.
  11. Get A Good Nights Sleep – What happens when you don’t get enough sleep? If you’re like most people, your performance drops and you get grumpy. Go to bed at a decent time and feel refreshed for the day.
  12. Set Goals It’s imperative to know what you are trying to get done. Set long term goals, but also create a daily to-do list so that you know what you need to get done. When you complete a task cross it off and reward yourself.
  13. Stay Positive This is one of the toughest things to do on this list. Even when you feel overloaded and overwhelmed, it’s essential that you stay positive. Positivity will help you get through the hard parts of the day.

Use this list as your personal to-do list and it will help you to supercharge your productivity. It doesn’t matter who you are, when you do these things it will help you accomplish great things in life. Good luck!
