When is the best time to write a To-do list. Before you sleep or when you wake up.

I think the best time ti writer a To-do list is when you wake up (I am a studenti so I have time in the morning), because It makes me start the day focused on what I have to do!

Nichol Y.
I think the best time to write your to do list would be right before bed so you can kind of do a brain dump and so you don't forget anything then kf you remember something in the morning you can always add to it

I like to write my to do list before I go to sleep, that way I can "sleep about that matter" and wake up not worried about what I need to plan, only caring about doing what I must do.

Blanka S.
For me ít is while I let some fresh air into my room so that I can start my day in the morning with an exact plan in my head. IT also releaves my stress about forgetting sg.

Often sometime before I go to bed is better to write a to do list for the next day. It also helps relieve any anxiety about forgetting what I need to write down when I wake up.

When I wake up. At night I am more creative so I tend to stray into things or ideas that I want to do, but it’s not necessarily things I need to do thus I forget what I have to do. In the morning, I’m more goal oriented and I’m much more likely to get it done.

If something is on your mind, then before you sleep. Otherwise writing a to do list in the morning and prioritising your tasks is a great way to start your day.

Jen R.
I do it early afternoon. School run, walk dog, to do list, then start after lunch. I can base it on how I’m feeling that day, what I’m more likely to complete. Some would prefer to plan ahead which is fine as well. I just think about it in my head, then make a decision the next day. Try different things and see what works best for you. Good luck!

Romilda Z.
I like to do it first thing in the morning, as I’m starting work. If I do it at night it gets my mind racing with all the things that need doing and prevents me from switching of and sleeping!

Kirstyn T.
I do both. I write out a rough list at the beginning of each week. I then sit down each night and figure out what tasks from that list can be done the next day. The next morning I schedule them into time slots and get to it!

Alex E.
For me it's at the end of the day. At that time I know what I accomplished that day and what still needs to be done. Writing that down before I go to sleep helps me feel less anxious about the next day.
It's also a way of reflecting on how the day went, my actions, and my feelings.

Lorraine Z.
Both! I actually write one at the end of work so I know where I am picking up, then I’m the morning I review it and prioritize my tasks

Viktoria N.
Both, if there is something i know that i need to do i write it the day before but i write the rest of my to do list when i Wake up

Himara T.
Before you wake up because then you can include everything in your list with ease instead of trying to remember things in the morning

Sam S.
Both options work! I like to look over my schedule for the next day and jot down any tasks that are feeding up my head a few hours before bed, since doing any of that right before bed will put me into Planning Mode and I'm wide awake, stressing or planning or running through lists in my head. Sometimes I end up with a full to-do list And sometimes there's nothing written down in the evening, but having a ritual + a specific spot (daily page in my bullet journal) to write things down makes it easier to let them go and relax at night, instead of worrying about whether I'll remember everything later or trying to figure out the best way to do things.

I've got a separate ritual right after breakfast in the mornings- I sit down with coffee and look over my schedule, my weekly task list, anything I wrote the night before, and either make or look over my to-do list for the day. That's when I mark my top priority tasks, and try to figure out what order everything should happen in and what I'll need to be able to get things done. I'm trying to add a new habit to the end of that ritual, just about 5 minutes of something related to longer-term goals (I've been doing a question each day from the "Rituals of Living Dreambook") and it's super helpful for motivating me to get up and actually get the first thing on my task list done afterwards.

Holly F.
I prefer writing to do lists in the morning. In the past when I tried writing lists in the evening, I would occasionally have trouble sleeping because my brain was thinking about the items on my list.

Anton P.
It's better before you sleep, because I feel that when I write my to do list before sleep I can think more clearly what things I might do the next day, which ones needs my total attention and which are not my priority for the next day… So when you wake up you already know what to do the rest of the day.

Uellerson P.
Before sleep. At the same time you empty your mind to sleep, you get ready to start the morning routine quickly, because you already have a list to follow. You should avoid thinking too much early morning.

Jason C.
Both! Writing a to-do list before you sleep is a great way to organize all the thoughts running around before bed time. I can sleep better knowing I’ve taken the time to organize tomorrow’s tasks. Revisiting that list in the morning allows me to plan my day accordingly and also make sure that things aren’t falling through the cracks, in case I forgot about it the night before.

Denise E.
I think it depends on the person. I for one like doing it in the morning so I can see everything I have to do and prepare myself for it and also because at night I’m too sleepy to remember every chore for the next day.
