Finding an easier way to complete life’s daily duties is a life hack. A quick Google search of ‘life hack ideas’ and a surplus of ideas will be a click away. Life hacks would also fall under productivity. But where’s the fun in being productive when you can find a short-cut?
Today’s bloggers all have advice on how to manage life productively.
Henrik Edberg from Sweden writes about simplifying life, social skills, and how to become a happier person in Positivity Blog. He is not a therapist and offers no guarantees that his advice will make you a better person. He hopes that by sharing his experiences and what worked for him, that everyone will be a bit more positive.
The world is a scary place and with current events as they are a little optimism can go a long way. In 7 Ways to Start Spreading the Optimism Today, Edberg offers seven simple ways to make the world a nicer place. I also found Gandhi’s Top 10 Fundamentals for Changing the World powerful and full of insight.

Jay White founded Dumb Little Man in 2006 to share tips on life, success, money, and health. As his career grew, his time for writing didn’t so he opened up DLM to other authors. This also allowed his blog to expand content, expanding the information being shared.
I enjoy how diverse the articles are from avoiding uncomfortable situations to buying glasses online. As a procrastinator, I think I might try 7 Tips On How To Overcome Procrastination Every Day. Seven days, seven ways to become better organized. I also know that procrastination is a vicious cycle of being overwhelmed and not prioritizing correctly. In Playful Strategies to Beat Procrastination and Boost Your Productivity, there are six ways to get out of the cycle without feeling like you are working too hard at it.

Zen Habits, written by Leo Babauta, is about “finding simplicity and mindfulness in the daily chaos of our lives. It’s about clearing the clutter so we can focus on what’s important, create something amazing, find happiness.”
Everything about this blog is deceptively simple from the look to the feel, but with powerful lessons on slowing down and living a purposeful life. Accepting that you have all that you need is not as easy as it sounds in a world drowning in ads. All You Need, You Already Have shares how to embody enoughness and simple rituals to reinforce it. Clinging to stress and accepting that this moment is enough are two more wonderful articles on how to let go and live a less stressful life. Managing stress is a big part of becoming a productive person.
