Daily Habits That Encourage You To Take Action!
Habits to do each day to start taking action:
Habit 1: Make daily to do lists.
Honestly if you are only interested in adding one new habit into your life to be more successful and start taking action then this is the one I really recommend.
If you don’t currently do daily to do lists then this is absolutely essential for being more productive and organized. Which are both essential elements to being more successful! To do lists help you stay on track and actually accomplish all of the things you want (or need) to do every day.
If you are someone who prefers pen and paper then grab a cute to do list notepad (like this one) or you can use the notes app on your phone if you are a fan or digital to do lists. Either way- to do lists are so helpful for keeping you focused and on task throughout the day so you can be more productive each day.
Habit 2: Start planning your days in the morning.
Using a daily planner and planning out your days is so important for bettering your life. Having more successful days definitely means planning them out. So building this habit into your life is so important for having those more actionable days days!
I use the Erin Condren Life Planner and love it so much for staying organized and productive.
Habit 3: Don’t go on your phone right away in the morning
Starting your day on the right foot can set you up for intentional and actionable days. And each day matters when you are working on creating intention in your life.
Making sure that you are not on your phone right away in the morning is one of the best ways to have calmer mornings.
You don’t need to be immediately thinking about something you saw on social media or thinking about a work email. Allow yourself to wake up and take care of yourself for a bit before you start thinking about the rest of the world.
And don’t worry about perfection, it’s more important to make any efforts!
Habit 4: Journaling
This activity is wonderful for helping you see through any filters you have up and get a better idea of your true self.
You can either approach journaling with or without prompts. If you are new to journaling and feel a bit uncomfortable with it it is usually best to start with prompts and then start working your way towards journaling without prompts. But prompts or not journaling is an intentional habit you should learn
A few journal prompts posts that can help with this are:

Also, if you want more prompts I highly recommend searching on Pinterest because there are so many great options.
Habit 5: Accomplish important tasks early.
This is another essential habit for learning to be a more actionable person. When you get habits done earlier in the morning you are more likely to actually do them.
Then later in the day when you are more likely to be struggling with motivation to be productive you already have the important tasks done and over with. So overall you have guaranteed a certain level of productivity each day.It is also very motivating which can improve productivity to know that you already got a bunch of stuff done that day!
Habit 6: Eliminate distractions around you.
Distractions are absolutely one of the main things that block and stop productivity.
So implementing in habits and routines that help eliminate distractions is a great way to be more productive each day.
For example, if you are super susceptible to looking at your phone each time you get a notification then turn off all notifications on your phone while you are working. If you have an iphone just turn it on do not disturb mode and it can really help you stay focused so you can be more productive.
I also have a guide on minimizing distractions that you can read here that may help you with staying focused and keeping distractions away!
