9. Rise with the Sun.
“The secret to a good morning is to watch the sunrise with an open heart.”–Anthony T.Hincks
Morning is the time when you’re stress-free and feel so relax. You tend to be more productive.
To get up early in the morning, you would have to go to bed earlier. Don’t try to be up at 6:00 AM if you sleep at 2:00 AM. You’ll feel low all day.
10. Avoid Multitasking.
One of the best productivity hacks for an entrepreneur is to stop doing multiple tasks at a time.
Multitasking has been the killer of one’s productivity since starting.
Prefer doing one task at a time. Complete it and then move to the next one.
11. Consider Taking a Short Nap in the Afternoon.
A twenty-minute nap in the noon can refresh your mind, and you feel better.
It also improves your job performance and boosts your brain and memory as well.
12. Take Cold Showers.
A cold shower is the best way to maintain hygiene. It keeps your body temperature standard which is 35°C. You feel more productive than before.
I would highly recommend it to you.
13. 5 for 30 Rule.
This is the rule I created for myself. It might be helpful for you when you have a workload.
It simply means to take a five-minute break for every thirty minutes of work.
14. A Free Day.
An entrepreneur is supposed to do work 24/7. I fully condemn it.
You must have some time for yourself also.
Pick any one day from the seven, so you could spend time with your family, make hangout with friends, or do any other activity that you were planning to do.
15. Stay Hydrated.
It’s not a big task. You can easily do it. Staying hydrated keeps your skin healthy and maximizes your physical performance.
16. Eat Healthy Foods.
Eating healthy can be lucrative in many ways.
It makes your mood better, makes you strong, generates new cells, so you look smart and handsome or drop dead gorgeous if you’re a woman.
If you adopt these sixteen productivity hacks for yourself, trust me, you’re showing the signs of success.
