GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK
MANAGE YOUR TIME
UNPLUG AND RELAX
TIP TWO: Manage Your Time
A great way to improve productivity is to improve managing your time. When people feel rushed, they often feel stressed. When you say, "I have too much to do and too little time to do it," you are expressing this frustration and stress. With good time management, you know how much time you have and how long it will take to get your tasks completed. You can accomplish more and have more time to enjoy life. Good time management reduces the feeling of being rushed and the subsequent frustration and stress. If you don’t already have a time management system in place then it is time to search for one. There are many books and systems available to help people manage their time. Think about your personal work style and find the right system to keep you organized. Sticking to this system will help you improve your personal productivity.
