Maintain your work environment

Maintain your work environment

We work better when our environment is clean and organized. Whatever you consider organized, be sure to regularly clean up your workspace and get rid of unnecessary things.

Changing your location, especially during a creative block, can also significantly improve your performance and reboot your creativity.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Figure out your morning flow

Starting your day on a high note sets the tone for the rest of your day (or even week). 

Think about the one thing that boosts your mood in the morning and incorporate it into your routine. Whatever it is, stick to it as that’ll give you a clear mind and set you up for a productive day.

Take regular breaks

Not looking away from the computer doesn’t translate into productivity. A good way to boost your motivation throughout the day is to take small exercise breaks.

You can do anything from stretches to treadmill runs, just to get your blood flowing and boost your brain function by moving your body. It also sets the tone for a more energetic afternoon.

Write it all down

Mapping your goals in a visual way is key, as seeing them makes them more real. You’re more likely to follow through on your ideas if you pen them.

Write down your top priorities and designate ways and blocks of time to tackle them. Also minimize distractions (i.e., social media notifications, alarms, news alerts, etc.) to get these things done.

Over-and-under committing time

It's not always easy to determine how long it will take you to finish a task — but usually, it takes longer than you think it will. 

Keep a time log for at least a week to see how you spend your time.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, the ideal temperature for shut-eye is around 65 degrees. 

The cooler you are, the sleepier you become, so turn down the thermostat.
