Owning a business has some perks — and one that people are usually jealous of is my ability to set my own hours. I love the flexibility that my schedule offers, but I’m not a morning person. When I first launched Lage Creative Company, I’d start the workday whenever I woke up, but I now force myself to get out of bed at 7:30 a.m. I’m sharing the things that help me stay productive with the help of my friends at Cascadian Farm!
Eat A Good Breakfast
Cascadian Farm Honey Granola Crunch cereal is one of my new favorites in the morning. It’s tasty without being overly sweet and leaves me feeling full. On busy mornings, I’m used to just grabbing coffee and nothing else, but a healthy, delicious breakfast makes a huge difference and stops me from crashing mid-morning. If I’m in a rush, I’ll grab a handful and eat it dry as a snack — I can’t get enough of it.
Write Out Your To-Do List Beforehand
Every evening before I log off from work, I make the next day’s to-do list. It takes fewer than five minutes and stops me from feeling aimless when I sit down at my desk in the morning. If you find yourself scrolling through Facebook instead of starting your daily tasks, try creating a to-do list before bed.
Schedule Morning Meetings
I always schedule early morning meetings when I’m given the option — getting dressed and having a conversation with someone is always a productive way to start the day! Try asking for the earliest appointment available the next time you need to meet with someone, and you won’t regret it. Do you have any other tips for becoming a morning person? Leave ‘em in the comments for me!
