Follow these 5 Simple Steps to be more Productive at Workplace

You’re a sincere employee and you’re willing to do your best to ensure that your work rises to expectations in terms of quality and honesty. But you just can’t seem to hit that sweet spot that ensures maximum productivity. If you’re wondering how to be more productive, here are five simple steps to help you take your work beyond expectations:

1. De-clutter and re-organise

Sweep all those junk mails and pamphlets, sticky notes and files aside, and pick out only important ones to stay on your desk. Better still, turn everything into a soft copy, and use technology to sort everything out, including your agenda for the day, to-do list, completed tasks, etc. It can make your work environment appear more free and conducive to productivity.

2. Avoid multitasking

Most of us believe that doing many things at once will help us finish a lot of work in a shorter period of time. However, this is not true. In fact, the quality of the work and overall productivity may take a hit. You may also lose time in the process, if you try to manage several tasks at the same time. Instead, focus on finishing a single task before moving on to the next one.

3. Take breaks

A few times a day, take five to ten minute breaks to stretch your legs or to take a walk around the office. Not only will it negate the consequences of sitting down for hours together, but will also relax your mind and body, and you will find that you are less tired when you return home. A lot of motivation in the workplace can be found in these little breathers!

4. Delegate work, and say no when required

Your enthusiasm and eagerness to be good may drive you to take on more responsibilities than you are capable of fulfilling. And by the time you realise you have bitten off more than you can chew, it is usually too late. Next time you find too much work on your hands, don’t hesitate to delegate the work, and trust that others will do the job well. If someone asks you to do something when you’re already full, politely decline and do not feel bad about it. This will help you focus on items that are high on your priority list, without stressing out.

5. Do not aim for perfection

There is no scale to measure perfection, which is why no matter how much you try to polish your work, you will always find something to change. Instead of striving for perfection, just do the task to the best of your ability, and put it behind you. It will keep you from getting stuck in the same spot and help you get more work finished.

Workplace stress plays a major role in making your life difficult. In order to keep yourself afloat, it is important to pick and choose high-priority work and do it without taking too much pressure. No matter how the working conditions are, you can always control how you respond to them. Otherwise, it can lead to mental health problems that may give way for physical problems as well.

In order to stay stress-free regarding your health, take a health insurance plan to keep your finances covered in case of a health emergency. Visit ManipalCigna’s website to go through their health insurance policies and choose one that you think suits you best.
