Due to these times, there has been a major change in the way we work. Everything is now happening online. Thanks to that, people are distracted more than ever. That’s why we want to give you 5 ideas for productivity improvement.
1. Remove any distractions Yes, we are talking about your phone now. It is obvious that a phone is a huge distraction as many people are addicted to it. The best way to do this is to turn off all your notifications and ideally, even set a time limit for the most used apps (usually social media). It might be a good idea to remove your phone from your desk completely (unless you need to have some work-related calls).
2. Have small breaks Many people, who call themselves “gurus” online might tell you to work hard and don’t stop. The “hustle culture” with their “While you are sleeping, I am grinding” lifestyle can be even damaging. Almost nobody can sustain such a way of working long-term and that is perfectly normal. Having some small breaks can truly help with being productive and getting a better sense of the big picture. A good break idea is to have a small snack, breathe some fresh air, or stretch.
3. Lifestyle This is usually an underestimated tip, but it makes a lot of sense. A healthy lifestyle is one of the most important things in life. Not only for your well-being but also for your work. Lack of sleep, low-quality food, and no exercise are all causing low energy levels. Then, many people who don’t focus on those things, try to save the day with 3+ cups of coffee. Coffee serves a nice purpose of giving you an energy boost, but it shouldn’t be used as a solution to everything.
4. Organize & declutter
Do you enjoy being in a clean and organized home? You should do the same for your workspace. We are talking about both physical and online workspace now. It is equally important to have an organized desk and to have organized Cloud storage. If you are using online storage such as OneDrive or SharePoint, we have a good solution for you. With apps like Office2SharePoint, the organization will be easier than ever. Why? Because you can organize and personalize all your sites, files, and documents with just a few clicks.

5. Plan your tasks Lastly, we want to focus on task management. Every worker has some tasks to do each day. Many of them are not organizing or separating the tasks efficiently. It might be a good idea to create a to-do list of tasks that need to be done soon. The most important thing is to delegate them, set a deadline and reminders. You can do that and much more with iPlanner Pro. Check out more here: https://iplannerpro.iglobe.dk/
