If you are looking to increase your productivity you might consider setting up a spread for your ideal day. Your ideal day is basically what you hope to do at specific times each day and can help to get you into a daily routine. That routine will set you up to be more productive in your day to day life.
What Is An Ideal Day Spread
An ideal day spread is simply how you would like to see each day of your life work out. It’s like scheduling out all your normal activities at one time and then trying to stick to that schedule as best as possible.
For instance, you might schedule the time you spend cleaning, the time you spend working, the time you spend running errands, or the time you spend reading. It’s about making room for work and play in your daily schedule.
An ideal day spread is just a simple display of what you hope to have your normal day to day life look like.
Why An Ideal Day Spread Is Useful
An ideal day is great to help plan out each day. I simple look at your ideal day can help you to determine exactly what you need to schedule in the day and the times where it will mostly take place.
It’s a useful spread for planning out your day and a reminder of the things that you should be doing. Your ideal day spread acts as your go to source for staying on track with your tasks.
While you may not do the exact same things everyday and ideal day spread will remind you of the types of things you need to do at different times in the day.
What To Do When Your Day To Day Is Different
Of course, not everyone has the exact same schedule each day. Sometimes our schedules vary depending on the work we are doing. This is when you can instead create an ideal week.
An ideal week will give you a general plan of work and play throughout your week. If you typically close a store on Monday but open on Thursdays schedule that in your week. Once your typical work schedule is in place you can start planning for your other errands, tasks, and relaxation time too.
Try To Schedule Your Days To Match Your Ideal Day
When you are creating your daily or weekly spreads keep your ideal day in mind. Refer to your ideal day spread when you go to actually create your daily spread.
This will remind you of what you should be doing at whatever time you should be doing it and keep you in a routine. It’s important to keep a routine going in order to maximize your productivity.
Schedule your days according to your ideal day and if things don’t go as planned, try again the next day. Things are going to pop up and you will need to deal with those things. It may throw you for a loop but the good news is you can try again the next day.

An ideal day spread is a great way to keep yourself on track for reaching maximum productivity each day. It’s perfect for those that pretty much do the same things every day, but even if you don’t it’s nice to have a goal.
Remember, if your schedule varies from day to day an ideal week can be helpful too. The goal is to boost productivity and try to match the same schedule from day to day or week to week.
