2. THEY HAVE A SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE ROUTINE
Founder and president of Supreme Organization, Jodie Watson, says “Your routine should be the bare-bones basics that you need to complete to keep life running smoothly before you rush out the door. If you have other must-do tasks … think about how you can simplify or spread them out differently based on your schedule.”
Set a simple morning routine and stick with it. Doing so will help ensure that you have the energy to make it through the day.
3. THEY FORGET THE CELL PHONE
It’s super-tempting to reach over and start tapping and swiping away. But this isn’t a good idea, as it’s so easy to fall into a black hole of email, news headlines, notifications, and text messages.
“I recommend not keeping your cell phone in your bedroom when you go to sleep,” says Fay Wolf, author of New Order: A Decluttering Handbook For Creative Folks. Wolf makes it a habit of sitting up in bed and practicing deep breathing for at least 30 seconds. “Every time I follow that principle I’m happier, and it’s an amazing alternative to picking up the phone,” she adds.
