Top 10 Things Organized People Do Before

Noon

by Maria Gracia Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Top Ten list is available. Studies have shown that morning people typically tend to be more organized than their night-owl friends. I'm not sure there's enough evidence to support this, but I do know an early start  and a little bit of know-how can make each day very productive. Here’s how many organized people often start their day. 1. They wake up early. Most very organized people are early risers, getting up slightly after sunrise. They also go to bed early enough to ensure they’re getting seven or eight hours of sleep each night. 2. They make the bed…every single morning without fail. 3. They take the time and make the effort to eat a light, nutritious breakfast, knowing they need the energy required to get through their morning productively. 4. They check, and double-check, their TO DO list and calendar. They look it over once the night before, and again at the start of each day. In doing so, there are no surprises and they can begin each day in a productive manner. 5. They’re active from the get go. Many organized folks exercise first thing in the morning. If that’s impossible with their schedule, they at least know when they’ll be exercising later in the day, and they actually do it. 6. They handle kitchen duties. They empty the dishwasher and put everything away. They determine what’s for dinner and handle any actions that will make that easier later, like adding ingredients to a crockpot or pulling something that needs to be thawed out of the freezer. 7. They don’t double their efforts unnecessarily. If they take off a coat, they hang it in the closet, rather than tossing it on a chair (which will then have to be placed in the closet later.) They open mail over the recycling container and get rid of inserts, outer envelopes, etc., rather than bringing the mail inside and needing to walk back to the recycling container later. You get the idea. 8. They tidy as needed. If something is laying around or looking disheveled, they rectify that problem. They recycle newspapers, fluff sofa cushions, and fold and put away clothes once the dryer cycle is complete. They pick up toys, papers, remote controls or anything strewn about and put it where it belongs. 9. They work first and play second. They save scrolling through social media, watching TV, or reading a fun novel until they accomplish important TO DOs and projects. They use those fun activities as rewards after the work is done. 10. They take at least a mind break or two. They know that taking some quiet time to meditate, journal, etc., encourages greater productivity in the hours to follow. Back to Top Ten Index
