Free 30 Day Productivity Challenge Printable
Is anyone else SO glad to see the sunshine earlier and last longer? The weather is starting to warm up and those winter blues are finally starting to slow. Spring time is one of my favorite times of the year as it really renews my soul. One thing I love to do when the weather gets warmer is set some goals for the spring and summer time. It’s when I’m most productive, honestly HA! One thing that has always helped me make the most of the season is giving myself a productivity challenge! It’s a fun way to start my time off right, and it feels good to check one of those boxes off every day. With that in mind I knew I had to share my 30 Day Productivity Challenge Printable with you all so you can jump into this new season with me! Let’s check it out:
So what have I included in my Free 30 day productivity challenge printable?
Day 1: Find Tools to automate tasks- This is something that I always try to remember because finding ways to work smarter, not harder, is important! I set my bills to auto pay, bought an automatic litter box, and set myself reminders for daily tasks like taking my medication.
Day 2: Create a music playlist that helps you focus- Music does wonders for my soul in any capacity. So finding a playlist that helps me when I need to focus and complete a task (like finishing this post!) worked perfectly. I suggest spotify who has a plethra of premade playlists!
Day 3: Move. Walk. Stretch. Sit up straight- Day 3 is an easy day, just remember to get up and move, work on your posture. Use this day to start a habit of remembering to do this daily!
Day 4: Make a list of things you want to STOP doing- Sometimes remembering things you DO want to start doing are just as important of things you Don’t want to do anymore. Make a list, give yourself a date to stop them.
Day 5: Schedule little breaks for yourself during the day- When making yourself a daily schedule don’t forget to schedule yourself some time for a break. 15 minutes to get up and stretch, a lunch break to actually enjoy it, and some reflection time in the late afternoon.
Day 6: Build in a small reward when you complete your daily task that you don’t like- And these don’t have to be objects, they can be extra time spent on doing what you love, a few more chapters in your book before you go to bed. etc. Just don’t forget to give yourself a little something extra for getting things done. (Personally, I have a small bag of hershey kisses by my bed, and I don’t share them ha!)
Day 7: Declutter the space where your spend most of your time- Today is the day to find some peace in your space. Declutter your work desk, your coffee table, your fridge, or wherever you personally spend the most time. It will create a calmer atmosphere that is sure to make it better!
Day 8: Every day, do the thing you like the least, first- Starting today, get that thing you would normally dread out of the way first. Hate doing the dishes? Do them the first chance you get. Have an assignment you have been putting off? No longer, get it done!
Day 9: When you finish something, no matter how small, write it down- If you are like me, you like keeping track of what you need to do, but how about starting to keep track of all you have done? It’s just as important!
Day 10: Only allow yourself to check your email a certain amount of times a day- Now I don’t mean your work email when you are in the clock. I mean during your personal time. You don’t always have to be available to everyone, all the time. Start setting your boundaries with this simple step.
Day 11: Don’t check your email first thing in the morning, wait until you have completed a task- Work on things you want to work on before you focus on what others what you to do.
Day 12: Spend the last 1/2 hour of you day, planning for the next- That way when you wake up the next morning you already have a game plan and you don’t have to waste time and energy thinking of what needs to be done.
Day 13: Learn something new every day- From this day forward, try to learn something new every day. Doesn’t have to be anything huge. Maybe a new fun fact, a new recipe, or a new cleaning tip. The point is to always seak out education.
Day 14: Keep track of your day hour-by-hour and look for patterns of your most productive times- Do this for a few days and use what you have learned to more efficiently plan your days.
Day 15: Delegate, you don’t have to do everything- Today let’s learn how to ask for help when we need it, and remember that you don’t have to do it all yourself.
Day 16: Create a plan for your day, but build time in for unexpected things- As much as I would love for everyday to be predictable, it’s not the case. So don’t forget to consider that when making your daily schedules.
Day 17: If it’s not truly necessary, remove it from your daily to-do list- Today lets take a look at that to-do list you have been working on and really evaluate if everything on it is needed. If you can get by without it, cross it off your list.
Day 18: Break big projects into small projects- For example, if you know you need to get the yard ready for planting reason, break that task into smaller, more manageable tasks until you get it all done so you aren’t overwhelmed.
Day 19: Reserve 30 minutes each day during which you are not to be disturbed- Now I know as parents this may be difficult, and you don’t have to have it all in one go, but you NEED some time to yourself each day, try to make it a priority.
Day 20: Stop trying to multi-task- Today let’s work on learning to focus on the task at hand until it’s done, before we move on to another. I think you will find that you will be way more productive that way.
Day 21: Avoid large lunches- Now, I don’t mean all the time. But have you ever noticed how hard it is to get back to work after a big lunch? Try a light lunch today and see how much better you feel.
Day 22: Write down 3 things you are grateful for every day- It can help even our worst days feel a little better.
Day 23: Find new places to work as often as you can- If you work from home, try moving to a different room, on the back porch, maybe your favorite coffee spot. A change of scenery every now and then can make all the difference.
Day 24: Pick up a new scented candle for your space- Today is a great day to go pick out a new scent for your working and/or living space. Something that makes you smile.
Day 25: Take the time to brainstorm new ideas- Today spend some time thinking about a new idea. Something you want to learn, somewhere you want to visit, etc. And put a plan into action on how to achieve it.
Day 26: Write down ideas that pop unto your head, but don’t start working on them, schedule them. One at a time, follow through!
Day 27: Learn to say NO- Being able to set the boundary to say no is just as important (if not more important) than learning to say yes!
Day 28: Wake up 10 minutes early to take the time to center yourself- Your body and mind will thank you for it!
Day 29: Set a timer for 30 minutes and race the clock to get things done- You’ll be surprised how fast you can get things done when you want to!
Day 30: Put your phone in an inconvenient place so that it’s harder to check it- When you are busy the less distractions the better.
