Do you ever have those days where you just feel useless? You know, like you need to go back to bed and start the day all over again? Man, I do, but over the years I’ve bene able to come up with a few things that typically helps me start my day off more productive and less make, lol. Now, they don’t always work because I think were just supposed to have those off days where we spend the entire day forgetting everything, tripping over air, running into doors, and messing up everything that we touch lol but they do help me have less of those days!
Start Your Day Off More Productive with These Tips
Here are a few tips to help you start your day off more productive. I hope you find a few that help you avoid the dreaded “go back to bed and start over” feeling.
Seriously, before you get out of bed stretch and I mean stretch. You know one of those that make you feel mighty tall when you get out of bed.
Make sure you are drinking enough water
Water is critical; you have to keep your body hydrated so make sure you are drinking enough water during the day. I like to drink a glass of water while I’m waiting for my morning coffee.
Make yourself a list or schedule for the day. If you wake up a little early, you can sit down over a nice cup of coffee or three and make your daily to-do list.
Learn to say no, even in the morning
No, kids I cannot pick you up from school today I have to do your laundry! I mean really, at some point this has to end, lol. NOT REALLY, do not tell your kids you cannot pick them up from school. As a matter of fact, how about you run and put that on your to-do list, so I don’t have to worry about anyone forgetting their kids, lol. If you can’t fit it in, don’t say yes! You’ll only make your day more stressful and find yourself putting off something else that you needed to get done. Learn to say no it can help you be more productive in getting things you are already obligated to do.
Do not, and I repeat do not try and multitask
Okay, maybe some of you are good at it, but it’s been my experience that multitasking often leads to getting a whole bunch of nothing done when you are trying to get a lot done. If you ever find yourself in this mess DON’T MULTITASK! Seriously, focusing on one thing at a time will help you get things done and get them done faster!
Stop being a control freak
This one isn’t always easy, but it’s totally doable if you are dedicated. I am a control freak; I want to do everything from making my coffee because it tastes better to brushing my daughter’s hair because I do it better, lol. I have learned that it is okay to let my daughter brush her hair, I mean she is 10 and capable of doing it lol. Now, I don’t let anyone make my coffee because, well I have to drink so that is something I will maintain control of, lol. Just remember you don’t have to do everything you can teach people to help you both at work and home. It will save you a ton of time in the mornings at home and even at work during the day.
Sleep at night, get up earlier in the mornings
I know, who wants to sleep at night, especially if you have children. It’s the only time you can sit down, relax and get yourself some alone time to collect your thoughts. Well, it’s not! You can wake up earlier and get your alone time with a nice cup of coffee! Plus, once you get used to it, you’ll probably be more productive and well, awake to remember the thoughts you’re trying to collect.
Let the natural light shine in
After you wake up open your curtain or pull up the blinds and let some natural light shine on in. There is something about the morning light; it can change everything. If I wake up groggy or in a bad mood, I head straight to the window and open the curtain because letting the morning sunlight in can totally change my day which helps me start my day off more productive.
OMG, this is one of the most important parts of my morning. If I don’t have coffee in the morning the day just starts off wrong and never gets better. Everything is all out of wack and wrong from the get to go; it’s like I left my house and forgot to put on one shoe and it’s like that for the entire day.
There is nothing like a cup of coffee with French vanilla coffee creamer to start my day. And, French vanilla creamer just made having flavorful coffee with my sister-n-law possible.
I recently tried Equal Café Creamers from Walmart and OMG are they good and easy to use, and they are pocket size, so they travel to work or anywhere else. Just toss that bad boy in your purse and have yummy coffee no matter where you go! YES, how awesome is that! No more flavorless coffee at my sister-n-laws house!
I’ve started to carry one in my handbag because my sister-n-law never has French vanilla creamer of any kind and it’s by far my favorite flavor.
Equal sweetener recently laughed a new line of coffee products that come in five fabulous flavors with only ten calories per serving, and you can grab them exclusively at Walmart. Equal Café Creamers are easy to use, taste great and even small enough to make coffee creamer portable. If you keep a bottle of your favorite flavor in your handbag, you’ll have the flavorful coffee wherever you go. You won’t have to skip that morning cup of coffee even when you are running late! Just make it when you get to work or wherever you are going!
I hate to say it, but I’m a bit of a picky coffee drinker, as my husband says. I prefer to think of it as I just know what I want in life! However, winning the lottery isn’t nearly as easy or convenient as adding Equal Cafe Creamer to my morning cup of Joe, but I’m still trying because that is another I want to one-day experience. Yes, winning the lottery is something I want to experience in my lifetime so I must not give up and stop forgetting to buy tickets. Oh, I’m going to go and put that on my list – purchase the winning lottery ticket!
It’s okay if you are not a French vanilla person because Equal has five different café flavors – Caramel Macchiato, Original, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, and Mocha. I like them all so far, but without a doubt, French Vanilla will always win with me, but I do admit I’m starting to think I’m a Caramel Macchiato girl too! I didn’t think about it until last night when my daughter said something about it not being vanilla that I realized I’ve been adding the Caramel Macchiato to my coffee more than the French Vanilla.
I’m also excited for the next time we go on a trip! I won’t have to stress whether there is real coffee creamer wherever we stop to get coffee at because let’s face it not everywhere always has good creamer.
There are certain things that help us feel balanced during the day so you can get the most out of your day, for me, it’s coffee with a little bit of flavor. You know we all want the perfectly sweetened creamer will ten calories per serving at our fingertips wherever we go.
Equal Café Creamer contains ten calories per serving, and there are 24 servings in each bottle of Equal Café Creamers. You don’t have to stress the sugar, keeping it in the refrigerator and it’s even suitable for individuals with diabetes. You can learn more about Equal Cafe Creamers by visiting Equal.com.
