Productive Things To Do During Your Work Time

  1. Work smart. Take on the most difficult, challenging, and important tasks first;
  2. Set goals. Several studies suggest that having a concrete plan boosts confidence and feelings of control. Your goals should be specific and achievable;
  3. Play your favorite jams, over and over. According to psychologist Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis’s book, On Repeat: How Music Plays the Mind, listening to music on repeat drastically improves focus and productivity.
  4. Clean your workspace. A Princeton University study concluded that cluttered workspaces create more distractions and decrease productivity levels.
  5. Time yourself. To make the most of your to-do list, you should time yourself and track your progress.
  6. Avoid multi-tasking . A Stanford University study  found that multitasking is less productive than doing one thing at a time.
  7. Be good at saying “No.” According to a recent study from the University of California in San Francisco , people who have trouble saying “no,” also experience more stress, burnout, and depression. By saying “no” to a new commitment, you will have the time and energy to focus on your existing commitments.
