Here are 5 tips that we would encourage to take on board to help improve work efficiency:  

1. Set Yourself a To-Do List  

Starting the day with writing a to-do list will allow you to acknowledge what you’ve got to accomplish today and what you should prioritise. Inevitably, things come up throughout the day that you might need to add to the list, but this visual representation will help keep you motivated, stay on track and ensure you’re meeting deadlines.  

2. Stay Organised  

Surroundings are key when it comes to staying focused and boosting your work efficiency, which is why you should add some organisation to your workspace.  We know it can be easy to pile up  the snack wrappers and start a collection of coffee mugs, but adapting a clean and tidy surrounding can help boost your concertation and maintain your focus.  

 Our Utility Pouch  is a great way to store all your items neatly in one place, without cluttering your desk. Available in three sizes: small, medium and large, choose your desired size or opt for all three in with our Utility Pouch Bundle, and work at your best – clutter free! 

3. Minimise Distractions  

If you have a deadline that you can’t pushback or simply want to get in the zone, try to minimise your distractions. Here are just some of the ways to minimise your distractions:  

  • Finding a quiet workspace  
  • Scheduling a meeting with yourself in your calendar 
  • Changing your status to on do not disturb on a chat system  
  • Setting your phone aside/disabling notifications to avoid temptation 

4. Keep Your Energy Up  

Food is fuel, so it’s important to fuel your day with snacks to ensure you maintain your energy levels. However, it’s so often that we can choose the wrong snacks that can actually leave you feeling more sluggish than rejuvenated. To ensure you’re picking the right food here’s some energy packed snacks for you to pack in your backpack 

  • Bananas  
  • Sesame seeds  
  • Lentils  
  • Cashews  
  • Dates 
  • Yogurt 

5. Take Breaks  

You may think in order to be work efficient you have to focus on just your work, but that’s not the case. In order to stay focused, you should take small 15-minute breaks to allow your mind to freshen up and renew its energy, so you can be ready to focus back on your deadlines and regain efficiency.
