-Organize a list of daily to-do's by priority, and check them off as I complete each task. Personally, I like to use this method while others may choose to spend a certain amount of time on each task. It is really just personal preference.
-Start the day with the hardest/least enjoyable tasks first. I like to knock out the hardest tasks in the beginning of the day because if I save them for last, I may not have the energy or mental alertness to tackle them at 100%. I find that this usually leads to procrastination.
-Work in 1-3 hour blocks. I like to work for blocks of time before taking a break, and find that if I work longer than this time period, my productivity starts to decrease. A quick 10 minute break can help me refresh my mind and relax for a bit.
-Getting rid of all distractions. This includes social media and web surfing, what feels like 10 minutes can easily turn into 2 or 3 hours of wasted time.
-Eating a well balanced diet and exercising. I used to think that not going to the gym would save me time, but actually staying healthy makes me more alert, energetic, and just feeling better overall. I also noticed that taking fish oil supplements on a daily basis helps me concentrate better.
