Being productive is something that you either struggle with or have no problem with at all. Certain days I have the hardest time getting things done and other times I can knock out 100 things in one day. For all those times when you’re feeling unmotivated and not wanting to get things done, I have some tips for you! I’ve noticed that I use these tips over and over again and they really help me. In partnership with Motorola, here are my best practices for being productive!
Listen to your favorite songs! This is probably the number one thing I do when I want to start being productive. I put on some tunes that make me feel good and I start doing the things I need to do. I recently started using the Motorola Pulse Escape headphones and they really help me to, you guessed it, escape! Snag a pair for only $39.99. That’s a crazy deal for the quality of these headphones. Plus, they are wireless, feature 10 hours of playtime with Bluetooth 4.1, have a 60 foot range from your Bluetooth device, and are foldable for travel! Oh and did I mention they have a built-in microphone and touch controls on the ear pieces? You can answer phone calls without taking them off! How’s that for being productive? And they come in red, white or black, whatever suits your style.
No distractions. Put your phone away (unless you are using it to be productive) and get to a quiet place. Put on some headphones and start doing. The Motorola Pulse Escape headphones actually get rid of background noise. Whether it be sewing, like I love to do, or work on your computer, you will be better able to do it if you minimize the amount of distractions around you. If you have dogs, occupy them! I like to give my pups frozen beef bones and it keeps them occupied for a few hours at least. If you are a snacker yourself (like me, ahem ice cream) then keep something to munch on nearby so that it’s accessible. You don’t want to get caught up making food to eat because that’s a distraction.
Write it down, then check it off. There is something so satisfying about crossing an item off a list. Especially if you actually use a pen and paper (not just the notes on your phone). I like to write my list in order of what’s most important.
What are some of the ways you stay productive? I’d love to know in the comments below!
