7 Ways To Jumpstart Your Day

Each of us begin our day much the same: we wake up. From there our days probably vary greatly. However, we all probably want one thing.

A productive day.

A productive day doesn’t just happen. We have to be intentional about having one.

Here are seven way to make your day productive:

1. Drink water.

I begin each day by drinking 16 to 32 ounces each day. This helps me bring my water levels back up and gives me energy to begin the day.

2. Exercise.

Finding time to exercise is difficult. Time is always at a premium. Exercise will often get crowded out. Doing it early seems counter-intuitive. It will increase your energy throughout the day. 

3. Spend time with God.

It’s important for us to know God. Unfortunately, few of us  know God well. To know Him, we have to spend time with Him and we don’t spend enough time with Him.

Take in God’s word. Spend time talking to Him in prayer. Do it before the day gets away from you.

4. Spend time developing yourself.

You are always told to place a air mask on yourself first on a plane in the event of an emergency. You are no good to anyone else if you pass out.

No one will develop you if you aren’t spending time developing yourself first. Read a little. Listen to a podcast. Do something to make yourself better early each day.

5. Love your loved ones. 

Kiss your wife. Make sure your kids know you love them. Text or call someone and let them know how you feel about them.

6. Avoid the news.

Let’s face it. Most of our news is negative. Letting negative news influence your life will bring you down.

7. Eat breakfast.

Don’t skip this. Fuel up. Don’t run out of gas early.

You want to be successful each day. Don’t just let the day happen. Kickstart your day by developing a routine similar to what I set forth above.

What would add or subtract from this list?

    For me I would add “Get up early.” But I am a morning person and to expect everyone to follow that thinking may be asking too much.

      I probably should have spelled that one out, but I don’t think you can do those things without getting up early.

    Probably won’t make your list, but I always have to go to the bathroom when I wake up. 🙂

      Hahahahaha……I almost included that under drinking water
