Now that I have an actual office space in my new apartment (🙌🏻), I have been in a highly productive mode at all times. It’s amazing what natural light will do for you. I kind of underestimated it in my old apartment. I knew it bothered me that my desk was set up in a windowless space (the only light was from a few dull overhead lights). It wasn’t until I set my desk up right in front of three big windows that I realized what a difference it makes though.
I’ve also been trying to workout first thing in the morning. I’m normally pretty good about sitting down at my desk around 7 am to get cracking on my inbox. However, checking my workout off at 7 and being done, showered, and at my desk at 8:30 is also pretty great. I thought I was pretty alert before, but man, after a workout it’s a new level.
Ooookay, this is all to say that my productivity has also translated into more time listening to music on Spotify. As I was listening to my latest playlist, I couldn’t remember if I had shared it on here or not… and I hadn’t!
This playlist is just under an hour. I use it as a good measure of time throughout the day. When I get through the playlist, I know it’s probably time for a little break, even if it’s just to walk to the kitchen to refill my cup of water. (It’s also a good way to make sure I’m not spending too much time on one particular task– something that I can fall victim to!)
