How To Live as a Productive Homebody

Automation at Home

I’m lazy, didn’t know if you could tell by my headlines and blog, but I’m extremely lazy.  I’m a homebody so I love automation and not having to do things more than once or have it streamlined.

Now it’s difficult to automate tasks such as vacuuming floors, folding laundry, but I think eventually they will be fulfilled by machines. As for now, we got to do all of those ourselves, but there are other tasks that we can have automated and done on autopilot.

For instance, washing dishes and washing clothes have been automated. Let’s talk about other things though, how about smart tv’s that have been recent;y invented. Amazon also released Nest, which is a smart home system. I see this invention taking over households and that’s certainly what Amazon wants. The same as Facebook wants you to spend the majority of your time on their site. Google has also launched a similar system to Nest, which is called Google Home. Amazon Nest and Google Home are now competing with each other to be present in your home. What will be next, robots fulfilling your chores for you?

Think of the cartoon, The Jetson’s, a family that lives in the future with flying cars and floating homes. They have a family robot named Rosie who is their robot maid. I feel like that’s the future and may know it as well. Where do we stop though? Or will we stop? A.I. is something that many tech entrepreneurs are afraid of because of the potential dangers for our future.

How To Not Waste An Entire Day

In the past when I had days off, I typically started my day by waking up and staying on my phone for about an hour. It’s a super bad habit and it kills productivity. That bad habit led to another bad habit and then another after that.

That was in the past and I learned some better habits to kickstart my day.  It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.

Now, I wake up and get out of bed instantly. You see, it’s at those small moments that lead to a cycle of unproductivity and constant laziness. I’m going to give you a few tips to do the same as me.

1. Keep your phone far away from your bed at night.

This was the most helpful because I used my iPhone as an alarm and since it was far from my bed, I had to get up from my bed to go turn it off. The hardest part of waking up is not actually getting up. Also, the snooze button is the devil…

2. Plan Your Day’s Agenda the Night Before

This helped me because I got up from bed and didn’t know what was going to be my first task. My very first task is to brush my teeth, make my bed, shower, and get dressed. Those are tasks we do everyday though, the first task of the day needs to be planned beforehand. You’ll walk around not knowing what to do next. There was also something I’ve read in the past where it advised me to write down my agenda for the next day into 20 bullet points. Out of those 20 bullet points, choose the 5 most important. I don’t remember where I read it from, but it helped tremendously.

3. After You’re Done, Take A Break

This means that after you’re done with a task, take a small 10-minute break. Grab a glass of water, eat a snack, anything. This is because it spreads out your day into tasks and breaks. Many people do too many tasks one after the other, but that doesn’t mean it works for everyone.

4. Get A Workout In

No matter what, you have to get a workout in your day. It won’t happen everyday, but it’s important to attempt to workout at least every other day. A workout can last 15-20 minutes. Many people have this idea of exercising for an hour or two. Let’s be honest, how long are you actually working out for in that hour?  Many people don’t even break a sweat. Resting while waiting for your next set is killing your precious time. In a later post, I’ll give some qworkoutsuick and fat-burning workouts for the busy people that have no time.
