We all know about the importance of creating the right morning routine but today I want to show you an evening routine that will make you more productive at work and life.
A morning routine is a really effective way of helping you become more focused on the day ahead whilst creating more time for the things that matter most.
That time for you could be for meditation, reading, having breakfast with the family. It’s a time to really think about your goals and let your mind really think.
There are lots of articles out there about creating the right morning routine. I’ve created a Free Productivity Mastery Daily Planner where a key part of the planning your day is about setting up your morning routine.
How to Create The Perfect Evening Routine
Today, I want to focus on the power of setting up your day the night before. Creating an evening routine can make you more productive at work and life.
By simply spending 15-30 minutes thinking about what you really want to achieve the next day during your evening routine, you will wake up more focused and with a clear plan of where to spend your time.
This evening routine will make a huge difference to your morning routine. If coupled with the right morning routine it can really multiply your success habits and rituals.
Now, everyone’s evening routine will be different, depending on their circumstances and personal commitments.
But, here’s a sample routine that I’ve been using and hopefully there will be some good ideas here that most people can use.
An Evening Routine to Increase Productivity
If we can make one small shift and introduce one new good habit, the compound results could be significant.
Here’s how to set up your evening routine:
- Review your day and write down 3 things you’ve achieved that day
- Take 5 minutes to express gratitude for the things you’ve achieved
- Check your calendar for the next day
- Think about, and write down, 3 things you want to achieve tomorrow
- Meditate on those 3 things for 5 minutes
- Get yourself set for tomorrow so you have time for your morning routine
- Read if you have some time
This is an example of a great evening routine. Your circumstances may be different so you will of course modify to fit your needs.
This is all about the principle of creating better success habits and setting up your day the night before to maximise results the following day.
By prepping for the next day the night before you’ll ensure you’re not rushing around in the morning trying to cram everything in, giving space to create your best morning routine.
Get started today with your evening routine. Let me know how you get on.
