Learn simple and easy ways to be more productive. Being a Yoga Teacher and Yoga Trainer is my full-time job. The majority of my time is spent lesson planning and advertising. These are the way I stay productive.
1. Write it Down
This one is pretty obvious, but having a to-do list is a great way to keep you focused. I start by picking 3 things that I must get done during the day and everything else is just a bonus.
Having a planner helps because sometimes just the digital list doesn't work. When you write you're list down you are more likely to get it done. Having a planner helps me plan out my day, weeks, and month ahead of time.
2. Fouse on One Thing
There is no way we can do a million things at once. Our brain is not capable of working on two tasks. If you want to be productive do one task at a time.
3. Eliminate Distractions
My phone is my number one distraction. When I have my phone next to me, I am tempted to check my social media. Sooner or later I have just waisted 10 minutes. Figure out what distracts you from getting work done and eliminate it!
4. Keep your Workspace Clear
Organize/clean/clear/cleanse your workspace . Cluttery and mess create a disorganized brain. It's hard to focus your brain. Organize paper, cords, pens, and draws. Do what you need to do to keep your space clear.
5. Take breaks
Give yourself time to breathe. You don't have to power through your day. Giving yourself breaks helps you stay balanced. Give your mind time to relax even if it's just for 10-15 minutes. Go outside, stretch, drink some tea, eat and move.
These are the ways I stay productive. How do you stay productive?
