4 Ways to Improve Your Productivity at Work

We all know how stressful can be working in an office. You have to deal with deadlines, extra work and sometimes you don't have the strength to manage with everything. Fortunately, there are some ways to increase your productivity and still preserve your strength. Unfortunately, since we're all different people, there is no guarantee these tips will work for you so feel free to share your experience.

Manage your time

The most important thing is to learn how to distribute your time. It is not easy, but with some training you'll be able to. We all know that is impossible to be super productive from 9 to 6. So, decide for yourself what's your most productive time: morning or afternoon and don't waste it with social medias or other distractions. Remember: the most successful people don't stay in the office until 10 in the evening. They deal with all their daily tasks until 6 or even earlier.

Take a break

Most of the people are working on a computer and this is very tiring, so you need to rest from time to time. Make sure you do some exercises for your eyes. One of them is to look at a distant object for a minute then look at closer one for the same time. Repeat this action at least five times.

If you're writing a lot it is a good idea to blink every time you write a word. That way your eyes won't get dry. You can also try to watch the keyboard instead of the monitor. That way your eyes can rest for a few minutes and you'll feel the difference right away.

Don't eat on your desk

When we're overwhelmed with work, we often forget to eat or do it on the desk. That way we not only make a mess and expose ourselves to bacteria, but also distract and slow the working process. So, even in the busiest days, take 20 minutes and have lunch outside the office.

Organize your desk

Now that you know how to rest it is time for some serious work, but not before you prepare your desk for it. Cleaning, organizing and tidying are very important and directly affect the working process. If your working space is clean and tidy, you won't waste time looking for important documents, the same applies for your computer. For the computer it is easier to arrange the folders and documents.

The desk cleaning is not hard too and it will give you some time to rest, all you need is a microfiber cloth and all purpose cleaning solution. One more thing: get a plant. Placing a plant near the computer will not only improve the air quality, but also reduce the harmful influence of the computer.

It may seem like a lot of work and at first and you may think it is impossible to deal with everything, but pretty soon you'll discover that all those little tricks will help you divide your time more carefully and increase your productivity.

Most of you may think there is no need for them to clean because there are professional technicians who take care of this, but in fact it is proven that cleaning helps you reduce stress since it is a physical action.
