Being More Productive: A Night-Time Routine
by Asian Efficiency Team
I like to read articles on how to be more productive. I came across this article on how to wake up refreshed and productive and decided to apply some of it to my life.
I choose three suggestions from the list to apply to my life.
Prepare Your Clothes for Tomorrow
I have been meaning to do this for some time. Sometimes I do and then again sometimes I don't. I must admit it does make the morning less stressful because this habit helps you be more organized in the morning, less rushed and less frustrated. This one I will adopt into my evening routine.
Buy a more comfortable Mattress and Pillow.
I am sad to say that my mattress is ancient. I am talking decades. It is lumpy and far from level. It is past time to buy a new one, and I have been thinking about it for years. I am going to look into this major purchase.
Adjust the room temperature.
We sleep better when it is cooler. I already do this. In the middle of summer, I have the temp on 69-70. I pile myself with blankets and always have my two fans running. "Snug as a bug in a rug."
I will add one of my own. I like to read before bed. I put on my PJ's, get comfortable in my reading chair, and settle in for a good read. I read anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours at night. I find reading very relaxing.
I will be adding more to my evening routine as time goes on, but this is a good start. Do you have something specific that you do before bed? I would love to know what you find beneficial to a refreshing, productive morning.
