How to Improve Productivity Without More Stress

By Genevieve Cunningham

Productivity is everything when you're an adult in America. We link productivity to success. If we're producing more, we must be successful. It's true that productivity is important, but is it more important than health? Is it worth bombarding our bodies with stress just to get a little more done? Luckily, there's a balance to be found. If you would like to improve your productivity but leave the stress behind, take a look at these tips to try today.


Set Some Limits


It's important to be productive, but if you don't set limits, you're actually in danger of diminishing productivity. When you're at work, work hard. Work efficiently. But when you're off the clock, set a boundary. Stop working completely and focus on life outside of work and productivity. If you're used to overworking, this may feel foreign at first. But over time, you'll likely notice that your overall productivity actually increases because you've lowered the burnout and improved your quality of life. 


Get Clear on Your Goals 


Productivity is great as long as you know the end goal. Do you actually know what you're trying to accomplish? Or are you working for work's sake? If you want to get more done, set some goals. The more specific your goals, the more likely you are to complete them. This may take a little practice, but the result will be more productivity and a better sense of accomplishment at the day's end. 


Opt for Singular Tasks


Far too often, we think that multitasking is the key to getting more done. But research has shown over and over again that the best way to improve productivity is actually by single-tasking. Do one thing at a time. Give it all of your attention. When you're ready to switch tasks, switch completely. At first, you'll feel like you're falling behind. But by giving one task your total focus, you'll actually improve both productivity and likely the quality of your work as well.


While productivity isn't the only important thing in life, it's still an important part of work, home, and personal accomplishment. And it's completely possible to improve productivity without making more stress for yourself. Use these tips to slowly improve productivity, and enjoy the perks in health that come along.
