It is certainly hard to be consistent and show up for yourself every day, but in the end, it is always so worth it! Let’s discuss a few shortcuts to trick yourself into being productive, even on the days you don’t want to get out of bed.
- Stop multitasking
It’s often tempting to try and multitask, juggling numerous workday tasks at any one time. While this may feel productive, it rarely produces the best results. By focusing on just one task at a time, you will complete it to a higher standard and in less time, enabling you to move seamlessly on to the next task.
- Set small goals
Large tasks or projects can feel intimidating and we often overestimate how long they will take to complete. You can create forward momentum by breaking tasks down into manageable, bite-sized milestones, which build until your project is complete. For example, clearing your inbox by answering four emails at a time throughout the day.
- Limit distractions
Becoming distracted is very normal, and focus doesn’t always come naturally. However, it is a skill that can be developed. Turn your notifications off, switch your phone to airplane mode, or use a productivity app.
The Pomodoro technique is commonly used to prevent distractions and complete tasks. Users set a timer, removing all distractions from their vicinity (social media, emails, etc.), and work in timed sprints of 20-30 minutes. Knowing that you only have to focus for a short period is an excellent way of ability to focus for more extended periods.
- Get enough sleep
Mounting evidence suggests that a good night's sleep seriously boosts productivity. Without adequate sleep, individuals have more difficulty concentrating, learning, and communicating. Further, Memory lapses increase, and Problem-solving abilities decline. It is essential to get 7-8 hours of quality sleep every night to maintain your productivity levels throughout the day.
If you’re someone who has difficulty sleeping then you should try the Vi&Ash sleep+ gummies. Our gummies contain Melatonin, Valerian root, L-theanine, and Chamomile and are 100% non-addictive.
- Identify when you’re most productive
Everyone is different. Some individuals work best in the morning, while others hit their productive stride after lunch. Identifying when you are most productive and then organizing your daily schedule to make the most of these peak times is an excellent way to increase productivity.
- Make a TO-DO list
Professionals use to-do lists as tools to increase their productivity. This tool can help ensure efficiency and organization in the workplace by allowing one to plan their tasks. If you're interested in being more productive and organized at work, you may want to consider creating a to-do list, tracking your progress, and taking corrective action when necessary.
