How to be more productive day to day

I’ve wrote previously about how to stay creative when motivation trails off but today I want to dig into my process of staying productive on a day to day basis. I work a 9-5 job at the minute and between posting on instagram, writing my blog and editing down vlogs – finding time to spend with family and friends always take precedence and I slack off. Here’s my methods to keep that happy medium Continue reading
