10 tips to increase productivity


Whether you're lacking productivity at work, home, the gym or other areas of your life, below are some tips that could help!

  1. Write your to-do list the night before and break it into manageable chunks
  2. Limit your distractions - put your phone in a drawer out of sight and turn the radio down a notch or two
  3. Exercise - physical activity enhances brain function in terms of concentration, creativity, faster learning and affective skills (meaning you'll get on with others easier)!
  4. Be happy - I know this is easier said than done but even just thinking more positively can increase productivity!
  5. Sleep - If you aren't getting between 7-9 hours of sleep a night, taking a nap during the day could help to boost your productivity
  6. Stay hydrated - not drinking enough water could leave you feeling sluggish
  7. Lunch out - leaving the office for lunch can massively increase productivity by allowing you to re-focus and ease stress
  8. Goal share - sharing your goals with others leaves you instantly accountable, meaning you're more likely to do them
  9. Delegate - no ones going to applaud you for doing everything and then burning out early. Delegate where possible and don't be afraid to ask for help
  10. Take breaks - regularly taking breaks allows you to relax and re-focus
