YouTubers usually work from home, so the lines between work and home can get blurred. Developing certain habits and building a daily routine can definitely help you become more productive and complete your tasks more effectively. Here are five habits that the most successful YouTubers incorporate into their lives, that you can add to your routine as well.
1. Exercise daily
As a Youtuber, you might spend most of your time planning, recording or editing your videos. This can take an enormous toll on your body in the long run, so make it a habit to exercise daily.
Even if you can’t take large chunks of time out of your busy schedule, try fitting in a quick 10-minute walk or workout every hour, between tasks. Here’s a Chloe Ting workout video that you can do anytime, anywhere.
Meditating helps you clear your mind for a short period of time, which can help relieve stress and tension from everything else around you. Meditation can be tough, but start small and try to practice it daily to get better at it. Aileen Xu, well-known as Lavendaire on YouTube, suggests starting with just 2 minutes a day and gradually increasing it.
3. Plan on the previous night
As you’re ready to end work for the day, make a list of tasks that you want to accomplish the next day. Having your to-do list ready can get you started as soon as you wake up.
Matt D’Avella ensures that he wakes up on time by keeping his alarm away from the bed and his to-do list right next to the alarm. This way, he doesn’t hit the snooze button and also sees his task list as soon as he wakes up.
4. Make your bed
Making your bed might not seem like a priority, but it’s a simple task that you can do within five minutes and will surely give you a sense of accomplishment. Also, it will discourage you from getting back into bed after you wake up or during the day.
Ashley, from Ashley Nichole YouTube channel, makes her bed every morning to feel productive, as it’s a small task that she can start with every day.
5. Write something daily
This might seem like a strange habit to develop, but remember, the heart of any video lies in the script. No matter how good your editing or videography may be, you will not gain views if the story doesn’t hit home.
Writing daily doesn’t have to be a huge task. Just start by putting your thoughts on paper and then gradually structure them into a fine script. In this video, Nikhil Pandey from the channel ‘Captain Sinbad’ talks about how you can make a practice writing daily to improve your videos.
Now that you know these secrets, try to build your daily routine with dedicated times assigned for them. Track your habits in a journal and see what sticks! A good daily routine should work perfectly for all aspects of your life.
