I personally do very few but important things to increase my productivity. I actually call it general state of mind.
That’s how I get into this:
I take as much sleep as my body needs. That means I dont use an alarm clock as I mentioned in another thread. I wake up naturally with the flow of my sleeping cycles.
I work out almost every day. Not just because I like it but also because it is my passion. By the way I’m 22. Maybe the huge amount of testosteron plays also a big role in making me running into the gym like a wild gorilla everyday. Just kidding. I’m doing fitness for over 10 years now.
I eat healthy and have a balanced diet. That means not 100% healthy but enough good nutrients as my body and mind neeeds.
I meditate and read every morning. Moreover I have something like a vision board where I write down my goals with picture attacheched to it. To not get stucked in the dreaming part I also take care of the practical aspect. I write down why I want to achieve something, how and when with an exact date. I view this every morning and add some things if necessary.
I adjust my music taste to my state of mind. Personally I listen a lot of techno, hardstyle and other hard music. I’m not taking drugs I have to say clearly. I listen to this music because it fits the level of energy which I get from the points mentioned above. At the end of the day this music is supporting my energy and is even increasing it. For me its like a symbiosis. I just listen to this hard music when I’m waking up, working out or when I’m walking around outside. When I work at my desk I listen to more relaxed techno/electronic music.
Because of that, everyday I’m excited to work and get things done. It’s not that hard to be productive and motivated when you take care from the beginning to get in the right state of mind.
