Whether you are working from home or from a cubicle, everybody is busy, busy, busy and trying to get the most out of every workday. I want to share some of my easy to use tips to work more efficiently.
Cut your to-do list in half
Do you sometimes start your day with 35 open tasks? No wonder you are getting stressed! Cut your to-do list in half, but complete all of them at the end of the day. You will have a better overview and less worrying about things you might not finish.
Take more (active) breaks
Go for a walk during your lunch break or start the day with yoga. It does not really matter when and how, but make sure you get enough active breaks. Not only will you feel more energised and healthy, you will have more inspiration for your work assignments.
Plan in some me-time
Life is not all about work. Don’t forget to read that book you are curious about, go to that new restaurant in town or go on that beautiful safari in Africa. Some quality me-time is the best way to avoid a burnout and focus on everything that is important in life.
Don’t get distracted
Co-workers gossiping by the water cooler, someone is showing a funny YouTube video? Try to resist! These distractions keeps you from getting into your work flow. How to avoid distractions? You can bring your own headphones to work and listen to your own music. This mutes all the distracting noises.
Working is necessary to make a living, but that doesn’t mean it can not be fun. Create a work schedule that fits you, think outside the box and get to know your co-workers during an inspirational lunch. Having fun at work will lead to successes. Plus, your day to day activities won’t feel like ‘work’ anymore!
