One of the best ways to have a good day today, is by doing your prep work the day before. And when it comes to setting yourself up for success, a little bit of nighttime organization goes a very long way. So, to help you have the most successful day tomorrow, do these 5 things before going to bed.
First, get your breakfast ready. You might have coffee and a bowl of cereal in the morning, or you might have a more elaborate smoothie. Either way, get everything set up so that in the wee hours of the morning, you don’t have to fumble around in the kitchen.
Then, give your living space a quick tidy up. You don’t have to do a deep clean here, just make it look clean and light again. There’s nothing worse than starting your day with a cluttered view.
Next, choose tomorrow’s outfit, because if you don’t, you could easily waste anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour trying to decide on the best outfit. Plus, early morning indecisiveness can leave you with an enormous floordrobe to deal with when you come home. Use 10 minutes to figure it out the night before, so that you don’t waste mental energy on an outfit tomorrow.
Then, assess your day by reviewing what you accomplished and what’s left undone. Figure out what worked and what didn’t, and why. This can prevent you from repeating the same mistakes tomorrow.
Finally, give yourself two to three goals for tomorrow’s checklist. That way, when you wake up and get back to work, you’ll already know what you’re priorities are and you can dive right in.
