13 Easy Steps To Get Stuff Done in 2016

I love getting stuff done. It makes me feel good about the time I have. There's just something about when you get a task done you want to say, "HECK YEAH, WORLD! I'm not a slacker today!" I mean, who doesn't think that when they accomplish a task?

But sometimes we just have that whole "I want to be a slacker today" mentality (especially on Mondays AND after a holiday break). Since it's a New Year & as a society, we're all about making "better" choices this year, I decided to share with you all my advice on how to get stuff done in 2016.


1. Wake up at a decent hour.

2. Try to get up at the same time every morning.

3. Stretch & move around once you get up-- maybe even exercise if that's on your resolutions/goals list this year (clever huh?!).

4. Eat a good breakfast.

5. Open the windows or blinds to let light in your work environment.

6. Make a (realistic) to-do list of everything you want to accomplish that day.

7. Use a planner or agenda to stay organized on events, appointments or certain tasks you have.

8. Set aside at least 15 minutes out of every hour to make your mind or body rest.

9. Designate a limited amount of time to get on social media during the day.

10. Check things off your list as you accomplish them throughout the day.

11. Eat a healthy snack mid-morning & mid-afternoon to get you through some of the hardest parts of the day.

12. Relax in the evenings. Make sure to spend time with your spouse or loved ones & don't worry about what you didn't accomplish today.

13. Go to bed at a decent hour & try to get at least 8 hours of sleep.

That's it! Do you have any good tips on how to get stuff done?


  1. To do lists keep me so motivated! I work from home, so taking little breaks throughout the day to get a snack, check the mail, walk around the house, etc., help break up the day and I can let my mind wander for a few minutes before refocusing!

  2. Yessss to letting natural light into your environment! It makes me so much more motivated!
