5 Easy Everyday Habits to Increase Your Productivity 

As I type this, it is 1 p.m. on Monday and I’m sure many of us already feel like our week has gotten away from us. It happens to the best of us: You oversleep, then the first thing you do when you wake up is look at Instagram, only to realize 30 minutes later — deep into the social media presence of “that guy who was on an episode of Friday Night Lights once” — that you’re about to be late to a meeting with your boss. Cue Monday-morning breakdown that derails your entire day.

Trust me, I have been there.

This is where the advice of Laura Vanderkam comes in. She’s the brains behind time-management and productivity books I Know How She Does It, What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, and 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think, and she is a vault of knowledge when it comes to upping productivity and avoiding feelings of “Holy crap, how did I waste the entire morning? AGAIN?!”

Vanderkam has spent many an hour researching how successful people squeeze as much as they do into a day, and she’ll be sharing her secrets to becoming the master of your time and living your best life, based on all that research, with us during her Empower Hour talk at this year’s Be Well Philly Boot Camp, our ladies-only day of all things wellness, going down Saturday, June 3rd. But because it’s Monday and Mondays are hard, today she’s sharing with us five tiny everyday tweaks we can all make to be way more productive this week. Check out Vanderkam’s super-useful tips below, then act accordingly.
