5 micro-habits that’ll boost your work productivity

Believe it or not, every little habit or action of yours affects your productivity levels in many unexpected ways.


Now that work has shifted to home for many employees, it can become more difficult to keep up with high levels of productivity.

But employees can also boost their work productivity when working in the comfort of their home. Here are some habits you can incorporate to boost your work productivity at home.

1. Take walks in between

Taking walks in between your work hours for 5 minutes at least will clear up your mind enough to work more efficiently. The walk will unclog your brain of all the work clutter. If you treat these walks as little breaks in between your work hours, then you will get a lot of work done faster and better.

2. Turn off email notifications during non-working hours

One of the biggest mistakes employees make is to answer emails during their non-working hours which makes it difficult to enjoy the time off. As a result, they are unable to destress during their time off and they end up getting burnt out more than often.

3. Organise everything

Organising work makes it all so much easier. There are organisational apps that schedule and organise your work for you when you input details of your work. Preparing your schedule the night before also allows you to keep track of time and your work.

4. Don’t deprive yourself of sleep

SLEEP. This cannot be stressed enough on how important this is to stay mentally alert and prepared. Don’t force your body and mind to work harder when it can’t, especially when you are running behind your sleep schedule. Once you catch up to a healthy sleep cycle, you can see the difference in how quickly and efficient you can work.

5. Fix a time only for important tasks

Keeping some time aside for some of your important work will allow you to acutely focus on a single task. Suppose you fix 4 PM to 5 PM only to solve the most important work of the day. You can’t talk to other people nor do any other work. This will do wonders for your concentration skills.
