What if I told you that by committing to just 5 easy actions,
you could increase your productivity by this weekend?
With our economy on the uptick, tourism steadily returning, and the market showing promising signs of improvement, this is the time to remain positive, take inventory of our mental and physical well-being, and to commit to a routine in order to take productivity to the next level.
Here are 5 easy ways to increase your productivity now:
Write it down.
Studies show that writing down our goals increases the likelihood that you'll achieve them by more than 50%! That's a staggering statistic. What do you have to lose? It takes less than 15 minutes to write a "to-do list" out for yourself. Try it today and hold yourself accountable to each point you wrote down this weekend.
Breathe (and stretch!)
When we're consumed with a task or dealing with an impending deadline, it can be very easy to neglect physical health. Sometimes all you need is a short physical re-fresh to boost your productive output. If you find that you just can't squeeze in a workout or get to the gym, simply taking a few deep breaths or stretching one part of your body can make a big difference. It takes no time at all and you can do it right at your desk! For stretching, it helps to stand up and step away from your desk for a few minutes.
Sometimes it's simply not possible to align all of your goals into the same category (i.e.: chores, errands, Open House prep, etc.) and it can get overwhelming to multitask. Take a moment to organize your to-do list from "high priority" to "low priority." You can do this with a numerical list, color-coding, doodling, or any other method that's most comfortable to you. The point is to narrow down your list to include only the things that get you to your penultimate goal for the weekend.
Crossing out items on your to-do list can be a great device to boost your productivity. Sometimes it can feel like you didn't get anything done, when in reality, you did. The reverse can also be true. Help yourself take inventory of your productivity by making it visual. You may be surprised at how much you're actually getting done. This can be a big boost to help keep you going!
All work and no play makes for compromised productivity in the long-term. Think about what makes you happy, whether it's a piece of chocolate, a glass of wine, watching an episode of your favorite show, or sitting down to dinner with family. Whatever it is, it's important to reward yourself whenever you've put in a solid day of good work in at the office. It's important to keep a healthy work-life balance to prevent burnout.
