Three Ways to Maintain Productivity in the Workplace

Sometimes a comfortable office chair is all we need to keep up productivity in the workplace.

Everybody has moments during work where it is difficult to focus and it’s hard to maintain productivity in the workplace. You’re sitting there at your desk, spreadsheet on the computer and you start to glance out of the window. Next thing you know, you’ve been sitting doing nothing for an hour, with a deadline looming. Your stress levels rise and what should have been a very straightforward task now looks like a mountain to climb. Remain focused and productive at work in these three ways.

Choose a Good Chair

It sounds silly, but a good chair is the first step to keeping yourself productive in the workplace. If we are uncomfortable at work, we begin to shift and squirm; we no longer focus on the work, but are thinking of ways to get more comfortable. This is a waste of time. You don’t have to spend a lot of money; try out a number of chairs to see what best suits you, you won’t regret it!

Keep Your Work Station Tidy

Staying productive is partly about getting into the right frame of mind when you are working. You have to think efficiently if you want to work efficiently. If you clutter your desk, it puts you in a state of mind that is disorganized. Tidy your workstation and you will find it far easier to concentrate on your work during the day.

Take a Walk

Everybody needs a break every so often. Taking a little walk at lunchtime will enable you to get out of the office, stretch your legs and get a bit of fresh air. You can clear your mind and allow it to recover after a hard morning of work: setting yourself up for a highly productive afternoon.

It’s the little things that count; do what you can to maximize your productivity in the workplace.

A Walk in the Park to Help Overcome Stress

Life isn’t always a walk in the park, but sometimes, taking time away from your stressors can help you gain perspective.

Life isn’t always a walk in the park, but sometimes,
taking time away from your stressors can help
you gain perspective.

When you feel yourself getting overcome with stress, your cure may be as simple as a walk in the park. Sometimes all you need is a little exercise and some fresh air to get your mind clear and ready to face whatever comes next.

Working to your breaking point and beyond can be detrimental. Once you reach the point that you’re burnt out, it’s harder to recover. If you can take a quick breather and get your mind off of things, even if it’s only for 10 minutes, you will likely come back feeling at least a little better.
Walking in the park is effective in many ways. Fresh air always does your mind and body some good, getting your heart rate up is a great way to alleviate stress and feel good, and the serene surroundings of the park can be mellowing to your soul. It’s also free and almost always open.

It’s something you can do alone, with your dog, or you can get a friend or spouse to join you. Another person around will help if you need to talk through some things, or just have an enjoyable mindless conversation to get your mind off the things that are getting to you.

Do you wish you had more energy?  Have you been let down by energy drinks in the past?  Are you trying to avoid the negative side effects of caffeine?  If so then you’ve come to the right place!

Boost your energy just by walking

Boost your energy just by walking

One of the quickest and easiest things you can do is take a walk.  Walking will increase your energy level without any side effects.  One of the best things about walking is that it doesn’t have to interrupt your busy work schedule.  You can walk and multitask at the same time!

You can also take a nice hot shower.  It’s quick and easy to do.  It’s hard for anyone not to wake up after a shower.  Using a soap or shower gel with a flowery or fruity fragrance is an extra special way to help you feel even more energized and revitalized.  If you have a shower radio, you can also listen to a station with upbeat music.

The third and final tip is to just smile.  Yes I am serious!  Happy people have more energy than sad people so smile and be happy.  Smiling releases endorphins and also serotonin.  Both of these chemicals put you in a better mood and relieve any pain that you might have.  Less pain and a better mood mean more energy.
