Remember when you were a kid and all that you had to do during the holidays was look cute and eat Christmas food? Well, you’re never getting those days back, and even worse, as an adult, you still have to remain productive even during holiday season. Here are a few tips to keep you productive this festive season.
Get More Done In The Morning
How much you do in the morning determines how much free time that you can have later in the day. Set an alarm (by the way, for your alarm to be effective you have to keep your phone far away from your bed).
Don’t Be Indecisive
One thing that happens to a lot of people when we’re under pressure is that we freeze. You start thinking about all the different things that you have to do, and you end up not doing any of those things at all. Don’t freeze, just start.
Focus On One Thing At A Time
So you feel like there are a million and one things that you need to do. But trust me, doing more at once is not the way to go. Focus on one thing at a time and you’ll be checking things off your list faster.
Relax With The Online Shopping
Yes, we get it. It’s Christmas and there a lot of deals and promotions. It’s also the right time to start getting Christmas gifts for the people that you care about. However, when you start looking at things online instead of working, you’ll realize that so much time passes and you are not that far along on your tasks for the day.
Say “Yes” Strategically
Usually, during the holidays you realize that you’re being asked to make so many plans. Saying yes to everything, even though you may want to, can make you busier than you need to be and you might drain yourself to the point where you’re not able to be productive.
