Choose a dedicated workspace.
Set aside space in your home to serve as a workspace. Sitting in this location will sends a clear message to your brain that it is time to focus. When you’re not working, stay away from your designated workspace. After you finish your workday, resist the urge to check in with any professional obligations until you resume work.
Set a schedule.
Instead of an unclear plan, make a daily schedule and write it down. Create a digital schedule or jot it down with pen and paper and post it somewhere visible. Create a detailed to-do list that is divided into categories based on importance.
Commit to doing more.
Projects always take longer than you expect them to. As a result, you’ll frequently accomplish less than you set out to do. So, just as you should, overestimate the amount of time you’ll spend doing one thing, you should also overestimate the number of things you’ll do during the day. Even if you fall short of your goal, you’ll still have a solid list of tasks to complete.
Don’t let the guilt of working meters from where you sleep keep you from taking five minutes to unwind. Rather than simply opening Tiktok or YouTube and watching some comfort videos, take advantage of your breaks to get away from your desk. Take a walk outside or spend time with others who may be present, interact with others.
Discover Your High Productivity Periods.
Everyone is most productive at different times of the day. Some people, for example, are morning people, and they are most productive and focused in the morning. Others find that the evenings are their most productive time of day. Discover when you are most productive and plan your work schedule around those times.
Stretch and Exercise Regularly.
Stretching on a regular basis aids in the maintenance of good posture. Stretch at least once a day to avoid soreness and to improve your overall quality of life. Exercise produces endorphins, which increase happiness, enjoyment, and interest, all of which are beneficial to productivity.
Stay off social media.
We can all agree that we’re all guilty of this at times. If you’re not careful, social media can be a huge time waster. That is more time than the average person spends sleeping or working! In addition, many mobile apps now show users how much time they spend in each one. This is eye-opening, particularly for infrequent social media users. Learn about your company’s social media policies. Minimizing mindless social media use helps to avoid distractions, allowing you to focus on getting more done.
