Tom's Featured Tip: Increasing Your Productivity During The Quarantine

For simplicity, all advice on actual swings or drills is provided from a right handed perspective.

In this issue I wanted to go over a few things that you can do to increase your prodictivity during the quarantine period. Although these tips are not "golf specific" they will help your game due to the benefits that will carry over to your mental, and physical side of the game.

  1. Get Into A Daily Routine

    We are all having to deal with less structure in our lives and being cooped up at home. To look at this situation positively, itís a good time to develop skills - one being time management. All high achievers have strict daily routines. Routines become habits, meaning that after a while you do them automatically with less effort.

  2. Make Your Bed

    This sounds ridiculously simple, but I saw it in a speech given by a commander of Navy Seals. He said it's the first step towards an organized frame of mind for the day, and I buy into it 100%.

    The first thing that you should do as soon as you wake up, is make your bed. It will make you feel that something has been accomplished immediately, and it will create a sense of order and control over the day.

  3. Drink Water - especially now because I heard an expert say that if you get a spattering of the Corona Virus in your mouth and wash it into your stomach, your stomach acids will kill it.

    Before you have your morning java, drink a glass of water. The longest time you go without water is when you are asleep, so itís important to hydrate first thing in the morning. Studies show that drinking water first thing makes you feel more alert and it gives your metabolism a boost.

  4. Exercise in some way

    Make time, include some of the activity I included in the last newsletter.

  5. Set goals and have clear objectives for the day

    This used to be a weakness of mine until I started a daily "To Do" list on my phone.

    It's simple to set up and it works wonders. DO IT.

  6. Educate yourself

    The extra time that you have now should be used to your advantage. A common trait among high achievers and leaders is reading and education. Reading is not only a great self-development tool, but it is proven to lower stress.

    If you are not into the habit of reading, small chunks are easy to swallow.

    Put a reading list together and give yourself the goal of reading at least one chapter per day as part of your daily routine.

    I'll go through my very extensive golf library and suggest five good books to to read in the next newsletter.
Try all of these suggestions, you'll love the results!
