It becomes a real task to fulfil some nerve-wracking tasks while maintaining a balance between personal and professional spheres, regardless.
Here are a few tips that might help you become more productive in the same time span.
- Be organized
Being organized is the key! It may sound cliched, but if you are spending half your time searching for your lost key, or that favorite book that you can’t study without, then you are definitely wasting valuable time. Have everything where you need it and set up exactly how you like it, and you will find that you are able to work in a much more efficient and effective way.
2. Follow the timetable
Plan your day and ensure it never goes off the track. Waking up and working aimlessly can seem like a never-ending, impossible task. If you have an idea of what you need to achieve by each point of the day, the tasks won’t seem so intimidating. Make sure you include time to spend with your family and friends which can help you de-stress.
3. Be active!
Sitting at one spot all day long can be monotonous and tiresome, despite involving no exercise whatsoever. That’s why it’s important to take a few small breaks away from your study space – do some exercise, get outside, play some sports, or do whatever it is you like to do to stay active. It can take your mind off the stress of working, and besides, you need to have some leisure time as well.
4. Do not relax where you work
As we’ve mentioned, you need some time in your working schedule to chill out and do something away from your study materials. Make sure this isn’t in the same place as where you work! You need to take your mind off your studies during your break; relaxing next to your books or your corporate computer isn’t going to help you achieve this!
5. Switch off your phone
This is probably the best tip you will ever receive, literally. Study for about 10 minutes and then check Facebook or Instagram to see if there’s anything interesting – Been there, done that, no? However, many minutes later, you have wasted a lot of time doing very little. You’d be shocked at how well you can focus if you leave your phone off or in a different room! Try it!
