If so, then this blog post is for YOU. There are many simple changes that can be made in your life that will increase productivity, leaving more time for the things you enjoy!
- Prioritize your tasks: Make a to-do list and write the important things that need to be done first. It is easy to get overwhelmed by all of the responsibilities in our lives, but it’s always better if you prioritize what needs attention now instead of later when stress levels may be increased.
- Start with the easiest tasks: Sometimes, when we tackle our hardest task first, it leaves us drained and unable to focus on anything else. This is why starting with an easy task can be a great way of getting into the groove for your day.

- Never stop: It is important not to give up and take breaks when feeling overwhelmed; all you have to do is keep going until you reach your goal.
- Remove distractions: Reduce the number of things that distract you from your task by turning off notifications, closing down social media tabs, and staying away from other tasks when working on a project.
- Seek out the easiest, most mindless tasks: Often times doing something that requires very little mental energy is one of the best ways to get started on a difficult task. They can be things like making our bed or folding laundry
- Set time limits for your work projects: Setting deadlines and sticking with them will help us stay productive! We need to set timers for our work and then make sure to take breaks in between.
- Delegate tasks: Sometimes it is good when we can’t complete something by ourselves or if we are feeling overwhelmed, which is the best time to delegate a task!
- Add a little bit of fun: Adding small jokes, funny pictures, or gifs to your work can help ease the stress and make it seem more lighthearted.
- Get organized: This can be a hard step for many of us. We need to make sure everything is in its place, and we keep things tidy
- Reconnect with your passions: When our work becomes too monotonous, this can lead to stress and burnout! It’s important that when we are feeling burned out or frustrated, we take the time to reconnect with our passions.
