Working from home has driven a lot of us into a timetable that neither has a head nor a tail. This can lead you into a burnout situation. So, we are here to guide you into the right direction to make the most of your time. Let us tell you a few tips that you can use to lead a productive & efficient life.
1) Time Management
Start by making a schedule and stick to it. Most people use a work calendar to schedule meetings and events. When it comes to completing tasks, set clear expectations and deadlines. For that, you need to break down large tasks into smaller steps. Making lists and prioritizing tasks will help you in the long run, and never forget to take breaks!
2) Work harder or work smarter. Why not a mix?
Mere smart or hard work may not yield expected results. So, create a balance for both. Start with de-cluttering your physical and mental space. Acknowledge any distractions and try to get rid of them. Then, proceed to monitoring your short-term and long-term goals.
3) Stress Reduction and Conservation of Will Power
Promote transparency and do not micro manage everything. Trust your teammates to get the work done. If you feel stressed, just know that it’s perfectly fine to take some time out for your hobbies. And you can never go wrong with meditation and exercise.
4) Tips for Better Sleep
Stick to a sleep schedule, even on the weekends. You can start with practicing a relaxing bedtime ritual. If you have trouble sleeping at night, avoid naps, especially in the afternoon. Make your room as comfortable as possible with soothing colours and a comfortable mattress.
5) Make your surroundings Work Friendly
Try to create a work atmosphere with good lighting & splashes of your favourite colors, to achieve a productive & enjoyable working environment. If possible, decorate your space with succulents!
