Mid-Year Productivity Reset Tips
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m trying to understand how we’re already in June 2021!? Honestly, life since March 2020 has felt like a blur and yet somehow… we are here now.
I figured it’d be the perfect time to list a couple of tips and tricks I’m taking on board to have a better grasp of 2021, as I felt the first half was focused more on just coming to terms with the new direction the world and life was settling into (yes, a somewhat delayed reaction). I really enjoy consuming content focused on productivity, mindfulness and mental health because it goes hand-in-hand with being able to output quality, entertaining work from my side.
Here are some of my tips on how to have a successful mid-year productive reset to own the rest of 2021.
🌟Re-visit your goals and intensions: mid-year reviews of your goals, intentions and overarching themes of the year is a good reminder on what you decided to focus on. Your review sessions could allow for re-adjustments too, because maybe your focus has shifted or things have evolved that may/may not contribute to where your mindset was at the beginning of the year.
Personally, I had filled out a couple of questionnaires over on my Life Hub notion and I’m planning to take time to re-look at what I wrote to see if I’ve made progress and where else I can improve.
✨ Create a mood board: going back to basics is sometimes the best way to rekindle new motivation for the year. I’m going to assume you’ve maybe not created a vision board already but at least have a set of goals outlined for the year – these can inspire a mood board (or vision board) of sorts. This mood board needs to take bits and pieces from what you set upon focusing on for the year, but can be used as a collection of things that evoke inspiration and feelings related to achieving your goals. This is a great way to remind yourself of what inspired your goals in the first place.
🌱 Create a routine: I’m guilty of still needing to do this. I tend to test and try routines, but fail to create a habit of them (I have no idea how I’ll go back to working at an office after this stage). Reviewing your current routine – or lack of one – is a great way to set the tone for the rest of the year. Morning, night, weekend and Sunday reset routines are some of the types you can focus on but you can also look at what your ideal routines would be for self-care, focused productivity and chilled days could be too.
I hope these tips helped spark some Inspo to get you going for the rest of 2021 – all the best for the rest of the year!
