Planning your day in the morning (during the weekend) or the night before is great for having a productive week. That’s why it’s best to start incorporating a daily plan into your lifestyle.
These 6 tips will not only make you more productive but also a great simple way to make planning your day for success simple.
So grab your mug of coffee or tea and let’s get right into it!
Plan the night before
One way to include your normal daily plan is to pick out your clothes (for tomorrow), make your lunch, get your breakfast ready if you don’t feel like making it in the morning or you are running late.
All you need to do is check your calendar or schedule if you’re using one and write them down on your to-do list. You can also have a ready to go physical planner to make it easier to organise your schedule.
It will give you more free time in the morning as well as set the tasks for the day.
I use Google Calendar for my daily planner. But now I use Power Planner for its unique colours, agenda, display, and schedules. It’s very much useful to bring anywhere with you either on a mobile, laptop or tablet.
(Update July 2020: I used to use Power Planner back during high school years but I currently stuck with Google Calendar to make it easier to add events, add notes, reminders, etc.)
Some don’t require the internet which makes it 10x better to easy access however you need to have at least internet if you’re going to sync it throughout your other devices. You can also switch around some dates if you have a busy schedule without having to erase and rewrite your plans.

I’m not talking about the ones where you write personal things (I will be talking about that later). It’s the ones where there’s dates, calendars, address book and more.
Write down your To-Do-List in it and cross out the things you have completed throughout the day.
Give yourself 5 minutes in the morning and throw down any things that are stuck in your mind. Write down any plans for the future or write down something in the past that you want to change.
That way, you can have a refreshed mind and focus on the task instead of having to worry about what you’re going to bring to your aunt’s party.

Listen to your favourite music
What better way to start off your day by turning up your music and dancing around trying to get yourself ready? Music helps turn your mood from sad to happy. It can make you emotionally touch or even help you get through the day.
I listen to music whenever I need to finish off tasks or go to sleep.

Give yourself some energy and hype (but not too much)!
Having at least a cup of coffee helps keep me awake throughout the day and, the smell from the kitchen will literally boost my productivity. Am I the only one who feels that way?
Now that you got some ideas on what to add to your daily plan, you should definitely start off your new schedule tomorrow! See how it works out for you, planning the day.
