Quick question, when you’re at work, do you find yourself feeling there are either too little hours or too many hours? Whichever boat you're in, it means your work approach is not as productive as it can be. Want to kick off the week effectively? Follow our Healthworks top-tips to have a productive week!
- Make A To-Do List Every Morning
Yes, this might sounds stressful. However, spending 10-15 mins every morning (with a matcha latte/ cacao coffee in hand) jotting down a to-do list can help you have a better concrete idea for what needs to be done today, and what to hold off for tomorrow. This list can help you feel like your work is manageable, as opposed to tasks floating around in your head. Go ahead and tick-off the items as you complete them throughout the day.
- Tidy Desk = Tidy Mind
Working in a cluttered place can be such a distraction. Sharpened and polished tools make great crafts, likewise try and keep your desk (and your desktop too!) as tidy as you can, label, classify or color-code all your folders and files. Consider spending several minutes at the end of the week to recycle useless sheets, clean your desktop and clear out any junk, this can give you a fresh start returning on Monday. You will find yourself feeling more highly-concentrated at work after you’ve done this
- Manage Your Inbox
There are numerous emails which pop up every day, from your teammates, boss, clients, marketing services who want to do business with you and more. If you’re constantly checking your email, it can be very distracting. It’s suggested that allocating certain time to check your email can help, maybe three times a day, depending on your profession. Sorting your inbox into categories, adding filters, and having folders is a great way to keep your emails organized.
- Some Music, Why Not?
The point is to stop overthinking and just get started. The faster you put pen on paper (or fingers on the keyboard) the faster you can get the job done. Sometimes putting on a pair of headphones and shuffling your favorite music, can help you concentrate at work as well.
