Good Morning guys! I know I’ve been slacking a bit on blog posts for the past two weeks. I’ve been caught up on a couple of personal things and also I’m planning some things for the year so it’s been kind of chaos. Anyways today I’m going to be sharing 5 tips to be productive! I know coincidence much? (LOL)
TIP #1 MAKE A SCHEDULE
Working from home can definitely seem amazing and it truly is but you can quickly fall into a hole. By that I mean you can easily not do any work and waste your time. I have created schedules that have worked and since I do work at home I have the flexibility of changing it! I do highly recommend keeping the same schedule though at least for some time so that you and your body can get used to it.
TIP #2 TAKE A COFFEE BREAK
Just because I work at home doesn’t mean I don’t need a break! No but seriously if you work nonstop you eventually are going to hit a rock and when that happens you will just stop. Stop means done in this scenario. I’ve been there where I’m rolling and rolling and then it’s been over 7 hours and I can’t go on. Taking a good break in the middle of work helps me refresh my brain so I can get back to work.
TIP #3 GET PLENTY OF REST
This goes without saying. I know with being an influencer it’s hard to turn it off. I’m not even going to front and say that I get 8 hours or more of sleep every night. If it’s a good night I do but most times it’s anywhere between 5-6 hours. I can definitely tell the difference in a good nights rest and a few hours rest. It seriously makes all the difference. I’ve made it a goal for myself this month to turn everything off and go to sleep!
TIP #4 GET STATIONARY & PENS
Obviously if you’re making your schedule then you’re going to need some pens, paper, calendar, etc. I literally use everything possible to keep a track of my life. I have an agenda, stickies, calendar on my computer, Google Calendar, an assortment of pens, again etc. I’ll list a ton of my favorites here if you are looking for new items and ways to keep up with your life! 🙂
TIP #5 KEEP DISTRACTIONS TO A MINIMUM
Who doesn’t just watch and watch Instagram stories to the end of time? *Throws hands up* Well yes it’s part of my job interacting with others and such but there is a ton of things that go into my job. Again having the schedule will help a ton with this but if you can’t have background noise (AKA the TV) then make sure to remove yourself from it. One of my favorite things to do is leave for a good coffee shop where I won’t be too comfy and of course have my fix!
I would love to hear any tips you have to stay productive! I hope this helps you guys!
