Do You Need Tips For Better Productivity?

coralville productivityEven though we’re seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, people are still feeling overworked and unproductive due to the pandemic. Whether that means falling behind at work, or finding no time for your own hobbies and interests, this can have a negative impact on your day. Fortunately, we have a few tips for staying productive!

Take a Deep Breath (Or Three)

Feeling overwhelmed? The best thing you can do is stop for a moment. Finishing tasks highly stressed could mean doing work that requires correction later on! Instead, take a deep breathe. When we say deep, this should take three to four seconds. Then breathe out slowly, again taking about three to four seconds. Do three to five of these breaths and you will notice a different, feeling calmer and more relaxed, and able to tackle your tasks with a clearer head.

Create a Schedule

One way to stay productive is to create a schedule. Set aside specific times for specific task, both professional and personal. Then stick to this schedule. You will find your workload is easier to manage, and this could help improve productivity as you’re no longer dedicating brain space to figure out how long you have to complete a task, or when you should start on others, or how much work you have in a day.

Set Aside You Time

When you set up a schedule, then make sure there is time for you. Create a quitting time and stick to it. Avoid emails and correspondence in this time, and resists the temptation to stay late finishing tasks. You risk burn out! Instead, schedule time for yourself just like you would for any other tasks. Being able to breath and focus on you could be a huge boost to productivity, as you don’t end up burnt out and stressed to the max.

Take a Coffee Break!
