7 tips to boost your productivity

2. Don't snooze

The body needs some time to get you ready to
wake up. If you're not getting enough sleep, your
alarm clock is going off while your temp is still in
the deep-sleep range.

When you hit snooze and go back to sleep,
your body goes back to a deeper-sleep range,
that's why you feel even more tired.

3. Minimize multitasking

Scientist found that only 2% of population is capable of effective multitasking. The rest of the 'multitaskers' are easily distracted and less efficient. So just keep focusing on one task at time.

1. Get a goodnight sleep/
no phone in bed

Smarthphone LED screens give off blue light, which can suppress production of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate the sleep cycle and makes us happier.

Getting a solid seven, eight hours of sleep
can help us stay focused on busy days.

5. Web browsing/online stuff

Every time you visit a social network or check your inbox, a bit of your attention remains with those tasks. Try not to get distracted by other things during work.

6. Take breaks/ 20-20-20 rule

One study found that taking short breaks
from work can help stay focused.

Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break
and focus your eyes on something at least 20
feet away. This way you 'reset' your eyes and it
will be easier for you to focus.

4. Specific hours for tasks

People have a limited amount of willpower and this decreases throughout the day.

Try to get your hardest and most
important tasks done at the
beginning of the day.

7. Exercise

Your body is designed for regular movement, so sitting all day will not do good for your health. Try to stand up every once in an hour for a few minutes. You might also go for longer walks at least twice a week.
