7 Ways to Boost Your Productivity
Invest in a blazer or suit combo.Even though this might sound like a weird tip for productivity, you can instantly feel more official and look like you know what you’re doing. This season’s hottest ticket to business bliss: the blazer. I’ve added a few to my closet this year, and I have to be honest, I feel on top of things! Try one out below!
Use a planner that does the work for you.
Keeping all of our thoughts and tasks jumbled in our heads is not the ticket to getting things done. Use a planner, so you can have it all mapped out, and it will always keep you on track. Try out my daily planners to get organized.
Listen to Bossa Nova music.
Bossa Nova music is Brazilian music that became popular in the 1950s and 60s. It always gets me motivated. It has an upbeat tempo with lyrics in different languages, so you can zone it out, while keeping up the pace with the music as you work. Score!
Accomplish 3 things on your to do list.
Just getting over the hurdle of checking three things off your to-do list will make you feel so accomplished that you’ll just want to keep doing more!
Repeat after me, I’ve got this.
Maybe just by reminding yourself that you are capable, talented, and deserving of the success of your work, you can just push through. Pep talk yourself, because you do have this, despite what your doubts may be telling you.
Give yourself a break.
If you’re feeling fried, it’s probably because you are. Even if it’s only for 10 minutes, shut the world out and do nothing. Close your eyes, take a nap, go for a walk, or meditate. Then you can head back into your work with a clear, refreshed mind.
Change how you do your work.
What if you changed your approach or routine? Maybe it could make you more efficient, and thus, more productive! Try starting backwards, involve others in your work, or do tasks in a different order.
