5 Ways To Master Productivity
Ever feel overwhelmed with all the things you have to get done, places you have to be, and people you'd like to see? The daily balancing act can be a tough one, so here are 5 easy strategies to help you juggle it all as stress free as possible!
1. Take a breather.
It may seem counterintuitive, but taking a minute to be still is sometimes the best way to make sure you're ready to tackle your to-do list. Budget as little as 5-10 minutes of quiet time in your schedule every morning to help you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually prepare for the day.
2. Take Care of What You Can Before It Happens
Alleviating overall stress where you can lends to greater productivity in the day to day. Obtaining health and life insurance will take some of the pressure off of your life. Knowing you and your family are covered for the accidents that may come your way will allow you to spend less time worrying and more time working towards your goals.

3. List It
Being intentional can make all the difference. Writing your list down, whether on paper or electronically, can help you decide which tasks are highest priorities. It also serves as an accountability measure. Ending the day with a fully checked off list is a great visual representation of your productivity!
4. Track Your Time
Ever feel like you've been going, going, going all day long yet don't accomplish a single thing on your list? It's common for people to use 'busy-ness' to stay preoccupied and seem productive to procrastinate doing what they actually need to. Spend a day tracking your time to discover where you can be more efficient in tackling your priorities first.
5. Small steps everyday lead to accomplishments in the future.
No one can accomplish their biggest dream in a single day. To make your goals feasible, make sure you're parceling out realistic standards for yourself every day. Accomplishing bite sized goals consistently can in time get you where you'd actually like to be, while instilling patience and discipline in the process.
