Being Productive This Fall Tips


This time of year always makes me feel more energized and motivated. Maybe it’s the start of cooler weather or the forever ingrained in me feeling of back to school season. But it really is the perfect time of year to get back into a routine and accomplish your goals. Here are a few tips for being productive this Fall!

Create to-do lists

One of the best things to do to stay on top of everything is to create daily to-do lists. I have been doing this for years and it makes remembering everything I need to get done a lot easier. But it’s important to not feel that you have to complete everything on it. Just think of it as a rough outline of your day. Things will change and all that matters is you complete what is really important.

Give yourself days + times of rest

It is so important to give yourself time off every once and awhile. If you burn yourself out you will end up getting nothing done. Give yourself some time each day to relax and do something that you enjoy, even if that is doing nothing. Or if you can, give yourself one day a week that you focus on yourself and the space around you. I personally like to give myself Sunday’s to clean, do laundry, and take things a bit slow.

Find Excitement In The Simple Things

One thing that really helps in being productive is to be excited to complete a task. It’s not easy, but finding the excitement in the simple things in life makes a big difference. Everything from making your morning coffee to getting some work done. We are lucky to be able to live each day and sometimes that is the perfect motivation.

Prioritize what really matters

To be the most productive it really is best to prioritize what you really need to get done. This is one of the hardest things for me because I tend to get a bit sidetracked doing small tasks that don’t need to be done right away. Start your day getting the big, important tasks checked off your to-do list first instead of waiting until later.

I hope you all have a great and productive Fall!

    I hope I get back my motivation this fall πŸ˜‰

    How strange is it that the fall is my least productive time of the year. I definitely need all extra help I can get, but I think the main reason is that my energy levels are lower during this season. I hope to beat it this year.


  16. To do lists save me everyday! Whether I’m writing them down or storing them in my notes section in my phone, they keep me on track. Also! POST-ITS are the best things to ever be invented (aside from high heels)! Lol. Great tips here and you made the tote you’re sporting in this picture?! KUDOS doll! It is cute!

  17. These are such great tips! Writing a to-do list is such a good point. I would be lost without mine. They really do help to give you a clear idea of what you’re doing and need to focus on so it completely takes away that panic of not knowing what you’re doing xx

    I love to do nothing for at least 10 min and to sip my coffee, this is so precious! I used to have Sunday off as you do but with the kids around it’s not possible anymore lol. I get some me-time though when they’re out in school. I’m loving those tips Kara.

The photographs are so wonderful, they make me think of fall right away. Naturally, I also enjoyed your tips for being more productive this fall. Making to lists is always good and I loved your tip about prioritizing things…that always makes us more organized.

    These really are great tips to be productive! Thanks for sharing them Kara!

    I especially love the point about to-do lists. When I started creating them, it actually changed my life because I knew what needed to get done. The only problem I had was that my lists were always too long and at first, that was discouraging πŸ™‚

    I also agree that it’s very important to make time for doing something that you enjoy. Thanks for the wonderful reminder!

    I hope you have a wonderful fall!

    These are great tips indeed. I have to say I went to school for graphic design and the school I went to was quite strict and it really did teach me time management and how to be productive.
