Do you know what Bill Gates and we have in common? We both have 24 hours in a day. But the difference is he uses it wisely, and we lack production. We all can be Bill Gates on a condition of focusing on some points.

Do you feel tired before and even after you reach your office? Do you find your work uninteresting? Do you need some advice to get rid of this dullness that is going on with you? 

You are in the right place, mate. 

Here are some points which tell you how to increase your productivity in the workplace.

1. Meditation

We all know what good a 5-minute meditation does for us. Meditation is an Indian-originated concept that includes sitting in an ideal posture silently without any outer or inner noise. You will have difficulty controlling your mind at first, but it will be good after some time.

Mediation helps you release your stress and makes you feel lighter. It helps us in healing regrets or emotions, opening doors of our consciousness and to new creative ideas, which will help us at work. Who knows, maybe you will get an idea that would be appreciated by your boss then.

2. Make A Proper to-do list

Making a proper to-do list of what you will do in a day is very important. This helps you get ready for an opportunity beforehand, and you can be prepared. For example, if you have a meeting, there are times you forget and reach late. You will be stressed, rushed, and unable to focus even after you reach it because of the adrenaline rushing in your body. So, creating a list helps.

3. Distraction

Just like school children should shut their mobiles off during study, an adult working in an office also gets distracted by social media and messages. Turn off the notification for every social media site so they can’t disturb you anymore. Try not doing it, but if you are still tempted, you can make a particular time.

4. Interest

Don’t worry, I will not say to take an interest in your work. Yeah, well, if you can, that’s best. But it’s okay if you know that you are not interested in the work or are doing it just for some time to earn. Just do your work how you used to study in school. Push yourself to do that thing strictly and compulsorily.

But remember, it’s always better to do something that interests you.

5. Take Some Time Off

Maybe your boss isn’t that friendly or you are restricted to your table but taking some time off between work is a great option to let go of stress. This will increase your rate of work. Make a small part of work for yourself, and every time you finish a part, take a walk outside or drink juice.

6. Eating

Always, and I repeat, eat at least half an hour before you leave for work and eat light. Do not eat and work together. As mentioned in the last point, you can eat in between parts when you rest. Eating and working simultaneously will decrease your focus on your work; hence, the production rate decreases.

Eating more can make you sleepy and tired instead, eating fresh fruits and drinking water makes you feel refreshed and will help you.

7. Rewards

Reward yourself for how a parent does to their kid. Yup! Sometimes, we need to be a child. When you finish a part of your work, reward yourself with something like playing games, eating something you like, etc. For example, After completing some parts, you can reward yourself with some food you like and take a walk which helps you take some time off. You may be confused by mentioning so many “parts of work” at different points. Don’t worry, you will understand twice.

8. Sleep

Sleep is an essential part of your day. You can party or whatever you like, but take at least 4-5 hours of sleep with meditation to be active. Keep this thing for regular. People think they can sleep on weekends and will cover their sleep for a week. Can you eat your food on weekends and not eat after that for the whole week?

9. Be Happy

Be satisfied with what you have, what you are doing, or what you want. It’s okay if you want something you don’t have; try to achieve what you want but simultaneously be satisfied with what you have. Be thankful to yourself and God for reaching this far with your hard work. 

There are things that you can do if you want like you want a day off, but you think maybe something has happened. Unless your job is at stake, go for it. Take your time. Eat. Do what you want. Money always comes back. When you are satisfied, you will be happy. When you are happy, you will do your work better than others.

10. Keep Your Desk Clean

“Messy Rooms Make Great Ideas”  is proved after a study at the University of Minnesota found that people with the messiest rooms have the most creative ideas.

But on the other hand, if you want to focus on your work, common sense tells you that a clean room will make it easier. What will you choose if you are given a messily written notebook and a clean one? Yeah, so you can have a mess for creation, but Cleanliness is needed for concentration.

So, this was all we had to tell you on how to increase your productivity at work. It may be difficult for you to figure out all these things at once, but trust me, if you want to do it, you will get your way and always be able to shine at your workplace. Some personal experience points by the writer, and some are proven. 

These points will surely help you in one way or another to increase your capacity to do your work and gear toward your success. Be Productive!
