In the end, it affects your productivity. So, the question is how to stop? Well, I have effective tips to make your mind remain focused on your everyday work with zero snooze fests!

Take a look at all these tried tips to remain focused on your work.

Tried and Tested Tips to Stay Focused-

Avoid Distractions

No matter how much you think that distractions are hard to avoid, it is not. It is an easy task if you put your mind to it. Of course, you cannot get rid of everything distracting but the worst of them all can get avoided. Here’s what you need to do-

  • Set up timers when you will use the phone. Social Media is a great cause of distraction. So avoid it at all costs.
  • Do not work in a crowded space. Try to work in quiet environments. It increases focus on your task.
  • Tell your team members to not knock at your door at small intervals.

Pomodoro Technique Works the Best

This technique gets used by professionals to increase attention during work hours. You can use this by-

  • Set your timer for 30 minutes.
  • Do not stop working during the 30 minutes time frame.
  • After the timer goes off, take a break for 5 minutes and get back to work.

When you apply this method, it increases your attention space and productivity with everyday office tasks.

Keep Your Body Full and Hydrated

Well, we all know what happens when ‘hanger’ impulses strike your body. During office hours, many people take small breaks to eat/drink. This does not improve work productivity in any way. What you can do instead is, take 2 breaks a day with protein-rich food. Do not keep yourself hungry or dehydrated for long intervals. This will make you more attentive towards work.

Coffee Coffee!

Yes, I understand that as a regular office-goer you cannot go without big mugs of coffee. However, this results in extreme fatigue and loss of attentivity. What you can do instead is take coffee in small doses. Do not have the drink all at once. Listen to your body. Drink this energy-fueled hot drink, only when you feel the need for it.

Sleep is a Must

It is no secret that most of you are getting less than 6 hours of sleep. You need to change this habit ASAP. Due to less sleep, your body is more prone to fatigue. You might find yourself doxing off during work without any reason. Try to get a minimum of 7-8 hours of sleep daily.

All of these techniques have been tried and tested and the success rate is high. Go through all the points carefully and imbibe these good habits in your life. Your work life will improve greatly and needless to say, you will become a less cranky person at home!
