We’ve learnt that organised people have certain daily habits that often contribute to their success. Because mental and physical well-being is essential to this success, here are six things organised people do before bedtime:
1. They reflect
Before you fall asleep, review your day and what you achieved – no matter how big or small. This will help you access the progress you’ve made in a particular aspect of your life, which in turn will keep you motivated.
2. They unplug
Switching off your electronic devices an hour or two before bedtime helps you have a better sleep, thus ensuring you have a more productive next day. Whether it’s checking a work email or social media accounts, any kind of screen before bedtime causes more harm than good.
3. They meal prep
Have an idea of what you want for lunch tomorrow or have left over for supper? Prepare or pack your lunch for the next day so it’s ready to grab on your way out. And don’t forget about breakfast. We love the smoothie recipes on the Kellogg’s website. Portion and prep all the ingredients you need to make your smoothie while you’re in the kitchen cooking supper so all you have to do in the morning is blitz and enjoy.
4. They spend some time outdoors
An evening stroll is a perfect way to switch off after a stressful day at the office. Plus, it’s been proven that regular exercise helps you sleep better.
5. They set priorities for the next day
Whether you make a mental note or write it down, having an idea of the most important things you need to accomplish the following day will leave you feeling more prepared and less stressed. The short amount of time you take to plan the night before means you’ll have more time to execute your task.
The Business Insider reported that American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault writes down three things he wants to accomplish the next day.
6. They read
There’s proof that many successful people are avid readers.
Read for at least 10- 20 minutes a night to keep up with current affairs and expand your knowledge in general. At the same time, you’ll be improving the long-term health of your brain.
