Daily routines work best when they fit the ebb and flow of your energy levels throughout the day. Ask yourself, “What time(s) of the day do I have the most energy?” That’s when you should focus on your most difficult and draining tasks. Then ask yourself, “What time(s) of the day do I have the least amount of energy?”That’s when you should focus on taking breaks, relaxing and rejuvenating yourself. All great routines are built around when we should take a step forward vs. when we should take a step back. If you can find a balance that works for you, then you’ll become more productive, less stressed, and more successful overall in what you accomplish.My first recommendation to everyone is to create a complete list of their daily routine (from “Wake up” → “Go to sleep”). Then reflect on that routine and identify how your energy fluctuates throughout the day.
