Travelling is one of my favorite pastimes. It has afforded me the opportunity to meet new people and create lasting memories. When I visit different places it also inspires my work, especially when it comes to styling clothing. Along the way I have seen how people from different places, both near and far, style their clothing.
Being on the go has also challenged me to learn how to travel and remain engaged in my endeavors. Experiencing different parts of the world can be enjoyable, however mishaps can arise and do happen. For example, if a flight may be delayed or cancelled and it may impact what I have scheduled for the remainder of the day.
Life happens and not everything will go according to plan. Having certain habits and tools to enable me to remain productive while on the go has been beneficial to me.
Here are a few things I do to remain productive while I am travelling:
1. Set the Tone for the Day In the morning, I like to start my day by carving out time to set the tone for my day. This usually involves exercising, listening to an uplifting message, and jotting down what I want to accomplish for the day. Over time , I have noticed when I take time to pour into myself it positions me to be able to approach my day with greater clarity.
2. Take Time to Pause
I have an active lifestyle and enjoy focusing on my creative pursuits. Even taking as little as five minutes to reflect on what I have to be greater for in life. Listening to an informative podcast or a cool song helps me to feel more energized. Taking this brief moment to pause helps me to feel more invigorated and allows me to approach my endeavors with added clarity.
I use various SmartPhone applications (apps) on a regular basis, especially when I travel. It helps me maintain a pulse of status updates to my itinerary and stay organized. Using apps help me to remain engaged in creating my designs and connecting with others virtually.
What helps you remain productive? I would love to hear about how others schedule their day. Let me know in the comments section.
