5 ways to Increase Productivity at Work

Have you ever wonder what is like to close each workday with a satisfied sigh and completely sure that you have been 100 percent productive? or maybe you are one of those people who finishes their day full of stress, lacking energy and with tons of anxiety. If this is your case and you don’t like the way things are going workwise there is a way to change it!

The first step is to accept two of the major reasons why you are not as productive as you want, one of them is that we all have bad habits that don’t help our productivity at our workplace and the 2nd one is that we are reactive rather than proactive, putting out fires instead of making progress toward our goals.

When we talk about a change like this one, something is for sure… It is not going to be easy. However, if you want to increase your productivity and become the best version of yourself you can follow the next steps.

1-Prioritize your most important tasks first.
By doing your most difficult duties when you’re at your best, you will increase the odds to finish them faster and for sure with a good detail orientation.

2-Stop Multitasking.
Too many people have been victims of this crazy idea of doing several things at once, this is a productivity killer. Stop doing this especially if you are doing highly important tasks.

3-Do a “To Do” List and organize your work environment.
This will provide you with focus and reward you with feelings of satisfaction. With this, you also make sure that you won’t waste time looking for your tasks or any other document.

4- Eliminate Distractions.
Eliminate everything that takes your attention from all the tasks that have to be done.
You have to be honest with yourself and take all the thing that gets your attention away from what you need to do like be social media, blogs, YouTube, etc. by doing this you can create a new invaluable habit that will help you to focus and your workdays.

5- Treat yourself to motivate you.
When you reward yourself, this helps your brain to focus on a goal-oriented task by tapping into your emotions. You get a better mood and this leads you to more and better productivity.

Just a friendly reminder, getting enough sleep and making exercise part of your routine are just two of the things you need to do every day to be at your best and most productive.
