Do you feel less productive every day? Being unproductive makes you feel like you are not accomplishing the things you need to do. Well, worry no more because, in this article, we’ll give you 5 tips on how to be productive every day.
Tip #1 Fix your to-do list.
It’s good to have your own to-do list, but the problem with other people is that their to-do list is too complex. They tend to put the easy task with the difficult ones in one list. This causes them to procrastinate over the complex tasks. Have balance in creating your to-do list so that each task is done with a fair amount of time.
Tip #2 Don’t multitask.
They say that when there’s a lot of work to be done, you should multitask. THAT’S NOT GOING TO WORK. Actually, the more that you multitask, the more you’re not going to accomplish your task. According to Harvard Business Review, our productivity drops down by 40% when we do a lot of things at once. So prioritize what needs to be done.
Tip #3 Let there be (natural) light.
According to studies, the more that you see or get exposed to natural light the more you’ll be productive and alert. Apparently, natural light affects an employees mood and behavior and it also lessens stress. Who knew natural light can do that much for employees?
Tip #4 Take a step back.
Reviewing an accomplished task it is not a sign of slowing down your pace. By doing so, you are trying to see what tasks are done and needed to be done, if you are meeting your goals, and if there changes that needs to be implemented to do tasks more efficiently.
Tip #5 Give your eyes a break.
Keep your eyes off your laptop or computer for a while. Eyes that are too focused on the screen monitor may lead to eyestrain. To prevent this, do the 20-20-20 rule. For every 20 minutes, focus on an object that is 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Your eyes need some rest too.
Being productive isn’t a hard thing to accomplish, apply the tips we gave you and be at your most productive state.
