5 Simple Hacks to Jumpstart a Productive Day

Some days are more of a struggle than others. We get it! It’s too difficult to get yourself motivated seven days a week.

And while there’s no magic formula to get motivated every day, there are a few things you can do to get yourself going, especially in the morning.

Here are 5 quick morning motivation rituals to jumpstart a productive day.

5 Morning Productivity Rituals

1. Wake Up Early

Research shows that people who wake up early are more successful, more proactive, better planners, and better at anticipating problems.

Furthermore, many successful people also have a habit of waking up super-early in the morning. Tim Cook, Apple CEO, wakes up at 4 AM every day, and Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, wakes up at 5.30 AM to meditate and exercise.

Not only does waking up early give you more time to work, but it also allows you to eat a healthy breakfast, schedule a proper workout session, or devote some time for mindfulness meditation.
