Do you ever have one of those days or weeks where nothing seems to get done?  You arrive at work on Monday with a plan that never gets finished.  If so, here are 5 easy ways to increase your productivity this week and getting more done.

 

  1. Organisation

If you are trying to get more things done, then organisation should be the main thing that you focus on. When you are organised, you will soon notice that things just seem to run smoother.  Our policy portal will show you how to do this with your in-house tasks.

Action: Create a schedule, add one or two must do daily items. Complete them for at least a week then build on this foundation.

  1. Time Management

When you manage your time efficiently, you will automatically get more things done. This means that you will make use of every hour of the day and try your best to stay productive at all times. Easier said than done?

Action: Start with creating a system where people know when you will be available. When they come knocking, let them know you are freely available to them at those times.

  1. Focus

While you are working, you will need to remain focused at all times. Remember that you do not want to waste any time and it is important to try your best to not distracted by little things like the internet and other minor distractions.

Action: Add the times you will check your emails to your daily schedule and stick to reading and replying at those times. If you need to research set a time for it in your schedule in step 1.

  1. Food Factor

Nutrition is something very crucial towards your focus throughout the day. Did you know, an unhealthy diet will lead to an up and down day that will lead to less focus?  If you are able to eat a healthy diet, you will definitely see an increase in your focus.

Action:  Try and drink water at least four times a day. It keeps you refreshed and awake. Keep a number of healthy snacks in your drawer instead of sugary ones.

  1. Take a Break

Sometimes we work harder and harder to achieve, when we actually need to take a break. Taking a break can actually increase your productivity, re-fire your motivation and restore your much needed mental energy.

Action: If you have your own office or quiet space make yourself unavailable for at least 15 minutes. Close your eyes and rest.
