Everyone wishes they could be more productive. We hear about our friends getting up early and going to the gym and how our coworkers started budgeting more effectively but we never seem to want to do it ourselves. For many, it may be because they don’t want to take the time to plan this all out. More planning after a day at the office just sounds like less time relaxing.

Luckily for you, Business Insider writer Anna Arsenault has written the list for you. Here are just a few of her listed weekly goals that readers will likely identify with:

1. Exercise five times, for at least 30 minutes. The American Heart Association recommends at least 30 minutes a day, five times a week, to maintain cardiovascular health and strength, so I’d increase my gym sessions from two or three a week to five.

3. Actually stick to my weekly expendable “fun” budget of $75.

6. No alcohol Monday-Thursday. If I was committing myself to waking up earlier, and exercising more often, I wanted to get a full night’s rest, and drinking leads to poorer sleep quality. Plus, I wanted to avoid draining my budget on a bar tab.

These are just a few examples of some helpful suggestions Arsenault has to help people become more productive and healthy. You’ll see that things get off to a rocky start but she is able to adapt her plans and come up with some really great lessons. To see the whole list go to businessinsider.com.
