A Note from Matthew Edwards
I started Mars Digital back in 2018 after leaving another large digital agency. Among the reasons for doing so was to work-life balance; and if I’m being honest, I’ve failed miserably at this. Long term I’m sure it will work out but it’ll take time to get there. In the interim, however, we need to look at what we can do to improve our success and reach that goal as fast as possible. To do that, we need to be as productive as we can. So without further ado, here are some tips and tricks put together by Artur, our friends over at Career Karma.
Five Productivity Tips that Will Change the Way You Work From Home
Something we don’t usually realize is that we tend to work in autopilot mode. We’re so immersed in repetitive tasks that we get tired and become unproductive. This happens especially if we work from home, where we usually have too many distractions.
However, there are some things you can do to increase your productivity. Whether you’re a software engineer working from home or a digital marketer in a big agency, these productivity tips based on concepts from psychology will help you be more efficient.
1. Go for a Walk
We know you need to put an extra hour to that particular project you’re working on. However, it’s neither healthy nor efficient for you if you don’t take breaks. Taking a break between hours when you’re working will help you improve your productivity. Whenever you feel too tired or are just working on autopilot, go for a walk for at least 15 minutes, and resume work once you feel better.
