Life Hack #18: Getting Ready the Night Before

Benjamin Franklin once said, “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Did you know the start of your day predicts how the remainder of your day will turn out? If you feel rushed before you leave the house, chances all you’ll spend the rest of the day trying to catch up.

A simple solution to help with this is to prepare for the day “the night before.” Prepping for the day the night before allows for better sleep as your mind is clear when your head hits the pillow, a less rushed feeling in the morning allowing for a smoother transition from home to work/school, and the opportunity to jump right into the day’s tasks. This all equates to less stress and anxiety as you start your day, a clear mind which allows for greater productivity at work/home/school.

So what’s the best way to prep for the next day?

Here are 3 simple ways:

1. Write out the next day’s “to-do” list.

2. Check the weather and plan your outfit.

3. Pack your bag/backpack/briefcase and your lunch.

Well there you have it, give this life hack a try!
