4 Small Ways to Be More Productive Throughout the Day

I am sharing 4 Small Ways to Be More Productive Throughout the Day, plus offering a $100 cash giveaway to one lucky reader!

If there is one thing we all wished more of, it’s time (ok and money). With just a limited 24 hours a day, it seems it’s almost impossible to get everything done.

Years ago, I would run myself ragged trying to do it all, be superwoman. Not anymore. Now, I prioritize what I can, make lots of lists and try to be as productive as I can with the time I have.

Here are 4 Small Ways to Be More Productive Throughout the Day!


Make use of idle time

While I sit waiting for my kids at an activity, waiting for my curbside grocery orders, I use the time to delete or answer emails, answer and engage on my Instagram posts and make to-do lists or brain dumps.

Just a few minutes a day of these small activities can add up and make the world of difference to take things off of your plate.

Learn to say no!

For years, I was angry over things I had to do. Then, at some point I realized that this was all my own doing! I did not have to YES to everything that came my way. In my goal to please everyone, I was only shorting people and not giving my all because I was spread so thin. So no to things that don’t align with your mental health or your goals.


Yes! Relaxing is a huge part of being productive. Schedule it in. For me, when I take time to relax, unplug and unwind, I am much more ready to be productive and get things done. Plus, I find my creativity is at it’s best after some time “refill my cup”.

Set a timer

While my microwave is cooking or my oven timer is on, I use those few minutes to get quick tasks done: load or unload the dishwasher, a quick swiffer around the house, pick up clutter. What I don’t do? Sit down on the computer or play on my phone.
