In the times when we’re all either staying home, working from home, or going to offices, staying productive remains one of the most difficult jobs. It doesn’t matter what type of work we do, it is easy to get distracted when you’re surrounded by tough times. A lot of factors influence our mindsets, it could be the media circulating negative news or just the incapability to stay indoors and be as productive as we were when everything was normal.
It’s not just the physical space that needs tidying up, our mental space also requires cleaning. Do you feel like your productivity has reduced? Do you find yourself being in an inescapable cycle of procrastination? Read ahead as I talk about some tips & tricks to regain productivity.
⒈ To do or not to do?
Create a no-interruption zone, I know this will be difficult at first considering the internet consumption amount of an average person. Block your notifications for a specific period. This will help you to focus better and stay more productive.
3. Go with the flow
Encourage yourself, pat your back every single time you have successfully completed a task. This will help in getting into the flow with better motivation and therefore better productivity.
This method not only helps you remember everything that needs to be done but also gives you a sense of motivation when you check things off your list. The biggest driving factor is internal motivation.
4. Take time out to relax
5. Stay inspired
Challenge yourself each time even if you think the task is very difficult and you can’t achieve it alone. I’m sure that once you challenge yourself, you will find yourself more focused on goals. Take feedback, understand what you’re doing right and what you’re not. And above, let go of all the negative thoughts in your head.
Difficult times have led to difficult situations in this new era. Productivity is definitely an important factor but you shouldn’t stress about why you’re unable to perform well. Rather, you should focus on the bright side and how to escape the unproductive cycle.
