Easy Ways to Eliminate Distractions and Stress
By Donna Stark
Are you not getting as much work accomplished during the day as you would like? And if so, are you starting to stress over that? If your days are filled with distractions, and if those distractions are hurting your productivity, something needs to change. It's time to eliminate those distractions so you can boost your productivity and reduce your stress at the same time. Unsure of where to start? No worries. Your local chiropractors have some helpful suggestions that may get you back on the right path.
If you want to be as productive as possible, you'll need a lot of energy because the more energized you are, the more likely you will be to accomplish your daily goals. Here are three major areas of your life to focus on. Take a look.
- Hydration - Water is essential if you want your body to function well and your energy to soar. Make sure you are fully hydrated by drinking the recommended amount throughout your day.
- Sleep - Too tired to think? If you aren't going to give your body the rest it needs, you can count on having productivity issues the next day. Following a consistent bedtime routine can help you avoid that.
- Diet - Processed foods that are deficient in vitamins and nutrients can cause your body to feel sluggish and your brain to operate at a limited capacity. Improve your diet (and your productivity) by choosing whole, natural foods instead.
Pay Attention to Your Posture
Improving your posture isn't just about looking better, it's also a way to feel better and stay more productive! Keep an eye on how you hold and carry your body throughout the day and invest in some ergonomic furniture to help.
Turn Off Your Phone
How many times have you checked your phone in the last hour? Too many to count? If your social media scrolling is causing a rift in your day, you need to do something about it! If you can turn it off completely, go ahead and do so, but if you can't, create a schedule of when you can afford to be on it.
Start the Day With Exercise
There is no greater way to get your blood pumping and your creative juices flowing than exercise, so try to fit a quick workout (or two) into your day. And for better energy and productivity, schedule one of those workouts before you head into work!
Less Stressful, More Productive Days
With some simple changes to your daily routine, you can hit two nails on the head at the same time. Reduce your stress and become more productive with the tips above, and if you need more ideas on how to make your days better, visit your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.
