Productivity in Three Ways

_DSC9245It’s Monday guys!

I took a little time off social media this weekend to spend time with family, friends visiting from out of town and laying as low as low can allow.

I am feeling incredibly recharged and so I thought I’d do a quick post on a few ways to improve productivity (especially on a Monday). These are simple methods that I use and I find they’re super helpful when I’m feeling dizzy trying to get my to do’s together or back on track when I’m losing motivation. So here it goes:

1. Write it down…When I have a trillion things on the go and I am feeling frazzled, I write it all out and then prioritize the top items that I know I can realistically get done during the day. Setting achievable goals help me feel I can commit and succeed in reaching them.

2. Walk away…Taking a break when I lose motivation is often a critical aspect of me staying on track. Whether it’s setting 15 minutes for a walk or a coffee run or booking in a workout class or run, I always find a mini break to be one of the most helpful ways I stay focused. Something about getting some fresh air and a few endorphins (or a caffeine hit) always works as an instant reset when I’m in the middle of completing a task or two.

3. Find a support squad…Telling supportive people what your intentions are for the day/week/month/year allows you to commit and invest in your goals. There is nothing wrong with asking for help whether you’re looking to complete a project, stick to a fitness routine or quit a messy habit. I love that I have a team that I trust who view my goals in a positive light and encourage me when I’m feeling lost or off track. Having people in your corner will keep you accountable and there’s no better feeling then achieving what you’ve set out to do in front of the people who believed in you.

How do you stay on track…especially on a Monday?!

PS…I lived in this dress on Saturday and it is on super sale (you can get it over on my Instagram @LEXNIKO or shop it here).

PPS…I also linked similar dresses here, here, here and here and I definitely suggest snagging a few before summer’s out since there will certainly be in style next season and are great for any winter holiday!_DSC9238 copy _DSC9236 copy_DSC9246 copy _DSC9239 copy

    […] in the crazy negative talk and remind myself that life is a work in progress. Admittedly having my support squad makes me grateful since I’ve got the most wonderful friends who snap me back into shape when […]
