Why’s everyone talking about productivity?

Increasing your productivity is an essential step towards achieving your goals and having more free time to enjoy the things you love. Productivity measures how your work is completed within a given time frame and is key for improving. Add these tips to your routine today to be more productive and become the person you always wanted to be!

#1 – Get enough sleep

Good sleep is critical if you want to become more productive. A tired brain cannot perform well. Make sure you sleep at least 7 hours each night. Ditch the screens and devices once you are in bed. Instead, grab a book and read until you fall asleep. Apply a couple of lubricating eye drops before you begin to enjoy good sleep.

Studies have demonstrated that humans need at least 7-8 hours of sleep for optimal cognitive function. So don’t deprive your brain of rest. Even though you may feel tempted to shorten your sleep schedule to achieve more, remember the value of sleep for your brain. Aim to sleep between 7-8 hours each night to have a sharp brain and get more done in less time. 

#2 – Stay organized

Maximizing your productivity during the work week is all about setting yourself up for success. To do this, it’s important to create realistic goals for each day and prioritize tasks so you can manage your workload. Using a calendar to plan out your week gives structure to your days. It also allows you to focus on what needs to be done in order to get the best possible results.

How many meetings will you have? Are there any empty time slots? If so, fill them out with small tasks like checking emails or calling that person back. Do you need to stop at the grocery store and find the most efficient route to run your errands? Write all these details in your calendar and stick to your planned day as much as possible.

#3 – Digital organization

Have you ever walked into a store to find messy shelves and items on the floor? Don’t do that to your digital files. Good organization leads to increased productivity. You think you may be saving time by dumping all your files in one folder. But then you spend a lot of time digging through them to find what you need. Avoid this by having named folders according to your projects and subfolders.

Yes, organizing your digital devices may take a while. But once you have it organized by tasks, projects, and tabs, you’ll save time not digging for documents and files ever again. Create the necessary folders, notes, and sheets on your laptop and your email. Knowing where to find that particular document will save you so much time in the long run. Create as many folders as needed and watch your productive time increase.

#4 – Find out your peak productivity time

In general, the most productive hours for everyone are between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. This is a generalization. Remember, no two people are the same. So even though this is the general rule, you may feel more productive and creative earlier or later during the day. 

Check in with your body, pay attention to how you feel, and discover your best time to work. You can do this by taking a chronotype quiz. This quiz will tell you all the details you need to know about your sleep pattern, so you can schedule your biggest tasks at your most productive times. Take the test today here

#5 – Clean Workspace

A cluttered space is the reflection of a cluttered mind. Keep your working space cleaned and organized to work better. This may be your office, your kitchen, a studio in your house, or the coffee shop table. Ensure your area is clean and doesn’t have any distracting items around. Nothing is more annoying than having to pause work because you tipped over that three-day-old coffee mug. Not only will this make you forget about the task at hand, but you’ll also spend time cleaning the mess.  

Achieve your productivity goals with a clean, organized space. Have only the necessary tools to do your job and leave everything else outside or in a different room, smartphone included. Another way to set the perfect work environment is by using incense or candles and playing some productive music. Productivity music is a genre that enables your brain to stay focused by blocking out distracting noise and mimicking your brain waves.

#6 – Single-Task

Do one thing at a time, but do it well. Multi-tasking is the number one enemy of productivity and affects your IQ. Doing many things at once only yields poor results. So pick your biggest task, do your morning routine, and then get to it. Don’t save it for later or tell yourself you’ll do it tomorrow. You know that you’ll repeat the pattern. Now is the time. 

Your biggest task should always be the first thing you tackle at the beginning of your workday. If you aren’t sure which task may be the most important, write all your to-dos down and organize them by priority. Say no to procrastination with a simple to-do list. You can do this on your smartphone or using a notebook. Choose a method that’s easy for you.
