Howdy & Hello!
Welp, school is back in session! Spring semesters are beginning and it’s time for us students to become productive again! I know it sounds ridiculously difficult after a long Winter vacation but trust me, I’m feeling it too. So today I want to share with you my five essentials for productivity. These can be helpful for students or anyone in need of a boost in productivity!
If one of your resolutions, or goals this year, is to boost productivity or start a new small business. Then I would like to highly suggest checking out Kabbage. Kabbage provides a means of increasing productivity by offering small business loans. Applying for a loan, on Kabbage.Com, is simple, fast and there are no burdensome obligations involved. So, all in all, it’s truly helpful. Tip One: The Perfect Playlist.
One of my most effective tools for productivity is an epic playlist of sorts! I personally have two separate lists dedicated to how I am feeling at that particular moment. One is full of calming instrumentals for busy, overwhelming days. The other is brimming with upbeat tunes for slow days when I need motivation. I, myself, wouldn’t suggest too many songs that you typically sing along to as that may decrease productivity rather than the opposite. Tip Two: Decorate Your Space/Tools.
Honestly staying motivated, and productive, is already a difficult enough task. And having a boring and dull environment does not help. So why not spruce up your working space? Maybe place some obnoxious internet meme of Tina Belcher on your wall or decorate your cubicle with all of your Sailor Moon merchandise. Essentially something that will pep you up when you see it. However, if you are unable to decorate, then customize your supplies by buying a Vocaloid notebook or a Pikachu pen! Super simple and quite effective from my personal experience.
Tip Three: Prioritize Your Time.
I know procrastinating is an incredibly easy thing to do; even I am guilty of the practice. Well fear not because I have found, recently, that prioritizing my time is super beneficial and helps me remain productive throughout the week. If you have trouble with organizing and prioritizing; try buying a weekly planner or download a planner app on your phone. I am currently using a weekly planner to squeeze in my blog posts between school and work. And the amount of work I’m doing now is incredible compared to before.
Tip Four: Minimize Distractions.
I have found that I possess an incredible tendency to get distracted very easily. Whether it’s because my room is too messy or my rather obvious addiction to my 3DS and Pokemon. If you are aware of what items and situations distract you; try removing them from your situation beforehand. For instance, if I get distracted by my messy room, I would clean it up another day or a few hours in advance. If I feel a need to play my 3DS, I like to place it in an extremely inconvenient spot. So I won’t be tempted to break my concentration and pick it up until I am finished with my work.
Tip Five: Don’t Be Productive 24/7.
Don’t neglect to take some “me” time so you can relax and unwind. It’s great to be productive, but to be constantly working can become stressful and overwhelming. So pick a day or some time where you can pamper yourself with a bath or an awesome movie. Maybe even spoil yourself with Chinese food and an evening of shiny hunting on Pokemon… or is that just me? Please tell me I’m not alone. Anyways, I hope this post helps you all become more productive at school or work! This post actually quite a fun one to make.
