Boosting Productivity without Boosting Stress

By May 17, 2013March 9th, 2023Technology News

You, like many people, may want to boost your productivity and get more done in the day. But you’re afraid that getting more done in the day will cause you to feel burnt out over time; after all, isn’t that how getting burnt out starts? Though this is true, it doesn’t mean you can’t work more and get more done without feeling the stress of doing so. Check out the two following tips to see if they can keep your stress down but your productivity levels up.

Do It Your Way

Well-meaning employees and bosses will likely give you suggestions on how to do things, and you should always honestly and whole-heartedly consider their advice. In some cases, what they have to say will actually help you, and you can apply it to your current methods. However, even when you do use their advice, you’re still doing it your way. Don’t let anyone pressure you into doing it their way, even if their way appears to work better for them than yours does for you. Everyone has to have their own personal way of doing things, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Take a Siesta

Naps may seem overrated, but they help a number of people every day. Even a half an hour nap can help recharge you and give you the ability to focus when you otherwise wouldn’t have. A nap up to two hours has been proven to help you refocus after you’ve gotten through the groggy feeling, especially if you slept somewhere comfortable. Leonardo Da Vinci was once called the world’s greatest napper, and Thomas Edison only slept four or five hours a night, but he is known for taking two to three catnaps in a single day.
