3 TIPS TO KEEP YOURSELF HAPPY AND PRODUCTIVE
It’s almost two years since there was a pandemic outbreak and since working from home became a norm. Some people thrived, while others preferred to work in the office or at least have days that they spend in the office. Whichever set-up it may be, staying happy and inspired is always a challenge.
So what can you do? Try these tips and see if they can help you jumpstart your day, week, or even month with a happier and lighter state of mind.
CREATE A REWARD SYSTEM
Sometimes tasks and to-do lists can overwhelm. A great way so that you can look forward to whatever daunting task it is that you have to do is by creating a reward system. This type of system doesn’t have to be elaborate. It can simply be a treat like a snack, watching an episode of that Kdrama you’re currently on, or simply resting your eyes for a couple of minutes.
SET THE VIBE
Listening to some music can help stimulate the brain as well as help uplift the mood. Music can also help set the atmosphere. Those who tend to be distracted with the lyrics can opt to play some instrumental songs. Music applications like Spotify and Apple Music create playlists depending on their use. They create and update a playlist for working out, studying, productivity, etc. You can check them out and maybe curate a playlist that is tailored-fit to your taste and needs.
TAKE A BREAK
Taking a break is as important as any pending task. Don’t forget to make time to take a break. Taking breaks will help the mind stay motivated and inspired. Recharge and be sure to be kind to yourself.
Always remember that it is not always a race. Progress is progress. Some tasks have a deadline, but relax when you can and reset when you can. Overloading oneself with work can be counterproductive. Productivity and creativity are at their peak when the mind is well-rested.
