A constant flow of coffee may be just the jolt necessary to meet a deadline, but that’s not the only elixir to increase productivity at work. Prioritizing, taking breaks, dodging distractions, and getting a handle on that constant flow of emails are just a few key ways to increase productivity.
But staying productive isn’t just about the nine to five. While there are strategies to improve productivity during the daily grind, it’s important to set yourself up for success outside of the office as well. Studies suggest starting the day with low-pressure mornings (and a satisfying breakfast) and ending with a proper wind down and adequate sleep can improve efficiency, alertness, and ultimately productivity. While all of these tips may not be realistic for everyone, gradually adopt just a few of these productivity boosters to combat burn out and manage your time more efficiently.
