Today’s blog post is about my tips on how I get things done. I recently asked on instagram for some questions and somebody left a question about ~how I prioritize / schedule the “rainbowholic / kaila way”~. Since this blog topic is also in line with that, I figured that I should share some of the life hacks that worked for me.
In my opinion, I think that planning is just a percentage of the entire thing (if you don’t work for it, it will be just a plan). However, even though it is just a part of it… it is very important because it gets you into the right mood (a.k.a. your best focused self lol). In this blog entry, I will explain how I kinda ~program~ myself to be productive and to achieve my unending list of dreams / goals. Having the right mindset is really important when you want something to come true in the future. Hopefully, my tips will be helpful to anyone out there!

Ever since I started or disciplined myself to wake up early (the best time for me is 7AM), I suddenly had more time to do everything that I want to accomplish in a day. I used to wake up even earlier than that but I realized that I get tired too often during the afternoon (my naps become a full-length sleep lol THAT is not what we want everybody hahaha) sooo 7AM is the best time for me. If it is like 10AM, it is not early anymore I think (can be categorized under “normal waking up hours” haha). If it is hard for you to get up early, you can train yourself by setting your phone / alarm clock 4-5 times. It sounds crazy but it was effective for me. I also make sure that I sleep by 12 AM the latest (it depends on what kind of day it would be though).
After I wake up, I wash my face and put on sunblock and prepare hot water for my coffee / tea. I change my pajamas to work clothes (even though most of the time, I just spend my work days inside the studio if I’m not teaching). It is tricky to work at home so that is why I try my best to get into the work mode when it is working day. When it is weekend, I spend the day a little bit slower.
