We’ve all done it. Started the day thinking we need to be productive, but the responsibilities just get to be too much and you end up watching a TV show and eating chocolate instead. So how can you increase your productivity
- Take a shower. I heard this advice once and have applied it every time I feel like I need it. If you started your day off the wrong way and are just being lazy about the things you need to do, taking a shower is a great way to restart your day. It will make you feel clean and feels like it literally “washes the laziness” away.
- Make a plan, but don’t focus on each little step. It’s good to write down what you need to do and make a plan, however, be careful not to go into too much detail about this. Making a detailed plan of what you need to do is actually one of the most popular ways of procrastinating, as it will make you feel as if you achieved a lot, when in reality you haven’t even started your task and wasted 2 hours of your day.
- Get away from the noise for a little bit. Specially if you are in an office, it is sometimes good to get away from the noise and focus on what you have to do. It goes a long way if you get distracted very easily by each little thing (like me).
Hope this helps 🙂
