The Daily Rituals of Highly Productive People

Whether you are self-employed or do a 9-5, you can boost your productivity by practicing rituals or routines that have worked for thousands of successful people. I agree that a self-employed person gets to set their own schedule, but a 9-5 worker too can make the most by practicing some powerful ritual during morning and dusk. This post is all about the daily rituals of highly productive people.

Here Are the 5 Daily Rituals of Highly Productive People

1) Take short naps during the day

This may seem strange at first but the most productive people understand that a human being cannot go on working hard without rest and some revivification. This is why highly productive people are biphasic sleepers. They sleep at night (for 4-5 hours) and then take a nap (half an hour to an hour) during the day.

2) Spend the first waking hour on learning 

It is no secret–and you might have noticed as well–that you feel fresh and energetic in the first couple of hours after you wake up in the morning and tired and fatigued a few hours before going to bed. So, do not read books or work during nighttime. It is best to read books or learn something new in the first waking hour.

3) Listen to podcasts

After YouTube videos, podcasts are now the new way to share and receive knowledge. Most productive people spend the otherwise dull and boring moments of their day listening to podcasts on their phones. To learn more about the thought process of successful people and the go-getters of the world, listen to Joe Rogan and Lewis Howes. Both channels are equally profound and eye-opening.

4) Do something creative each day

I understand that life these days–especially if you live in a big city–is hectic and speedy. There is hardly any time for hobbies or creative work. For a productive and hardworking person, it is key to keep up the good work and fall for traps like fatigue or burnout (which are quite real and everyone experiences them). 

Doing something creative every day will give you the drive that most people are deprived off. Practice music, sports, public speaking, or any other form of art.

5) Have a healthy breakfast

Unless you are practicing intermittent fasting, it is important to fuel yourself up in the morning itself. Do not eat fast food or any other unhealthy meal in the morning. It is recommended to begin your day with a glass of apple cider vinegar or any other beverage with acetic acid. 

After about half an hour, follow that up with a healthy breakfast like eggs, oatmeal, some fruit, and a dairy product. Even successful actors like Dwane Johnson consider eating an outrageously large breakfast consisting of a creamed variant of rice, oatmeal, grits, barley, and brown rice.


Improving your productivity doesn’t have to cost money. Daily rituals are free of cost and you don’t need to be an expert to practice them. Plus, once you get started, the next thing you need to do is build momentum with whatever you are doing. A time will come when work will start to get easy and effort-free.
