How to Make Every Work Day Productive
Posted: 28th Sep 2017
It is popular nowadays for people to journal or dream journal but that isn't something everyone has time for. A great thing to try if you find yourself feeling negative is when you wake up, write down on paper 3 things you are grateful for. You may find you write the same things down most days, but it’s a good way of focusing yourself on positive things and starting your day on a high.
Have a morning ritual
If you come into work running late, stressed and with an empty stomach, you won't have a good start to the day. If you come in a bit early you will have time to settle in, organize yourself, grab a snack and breathe before you start working. This way you are much more likely to feel energised and motivated to give 110%.
Take it one task at a time
Multi-tasking is a saviour to some, especially if you have too much on our plate at once and feel frazzled. If you prioritise your workload, organize, and take things one at a time you will find you get a lot more done than worrying about everything all at once.
Have a shutdown ritual
Check off your to-do list, reorganise your desk, clear your emails. Do whatever works for you to enable you to come in tomorrow morning to a clear and calm space. There are some things that, if needs be, can be done at home or in the morning tomorrow.
'I'm so busy' isn't the right mindset
