Work / Productivity

Here are some of our favourite “I will” healthy habits to support your work / productivity:

I will…

  • Spend 3 minutes identifying options to bring new ways to work / be productive into my life (and action at least one a week!)
  • Make my bed… setting the intention for the day
  • Write my to-do list                                                          
  • Just Do It (JDI). To avoid the small tasks building up use “JDI” to tick things instantly off the to do list.
  • Write down all of the things that might distract me from the task in hand
  • Turn off my phone / put my phone into “do not disturb” mode
  • Work with just one application open
  • Close my emails down
  • Tidy my workspace surface
  • Write down one thing that’s great about today
  • Celebrate my achievements
  • Celebrate colleagues’ achievements
  • Read at least 2 pages of “that book”
  • Shut down my laptop for 15 minutes at lunch
  • Take a 5 minute walk outside (the office)
  • Turn off social media
  • Take a nap (26 minutes is optimum according to NASA!)
  • Set an alarm for the finish of my “working day”
  • Write down my 5 actions for tomorrow
  • Drink a glass of water (dehydration is a major cause of loss of focus)

Remember, we’ve kept them purposely small. The key to forming a sustainable healthy habit is to get started and by keeping the habit as easy and as quick to do, you set yourself up for long-term success. The more you successfully maintain your habit, the easier it will become AND THEN, it will naturally build from there!
