How can you make sure you are using all the time you have optimally, have enough fun and at the same time do all that you want to do?

It’s 13 days into 2020 already, and you must have already begun to focus on those things which you can do better this year. 

Here, I am going to discuss 5 important tips on how you can boost your productivity in 2020. So start implementing these ideas in your life right away:

Let’s break up with our guilt 

If you feel guilty about anything, it will drain you and exhaust your energy. You could take some proactive decision about the situation that is causing the guilt. If you can’t take any action, another way is to thank your guilt for showing up. Acknowledge that what your guilt is telling you, make your peace with that guilt or mistake, and you should find a better way to move on. 

Create a list of positive habits

Every decision you make before you start the day’s work draws from your mental energy, although you may not realize it. Choose one or two breakfasts that you like, which are easy for you to make on any day. There is a reason why Steve Jobs would wear a black turtleneck and jeans every day. When you don’t think about what to wear, you have more mindspace to think about what you do.

Stay away from negative people

You don’t need to stick to everyone for the rest of your life. Some intended to come and then go. If you have unhappy people in your life in the level of friendship between co-workers/acquaintances who always complain about or stress daily tragedies, try not to tangle with yourself. Their problems should not be yours.

Catch up with your friends

It sounds simple enough, but in our professional lives, we often get distanced from friends and family.

Spending time with your friends makes memories. One of the most important remorse for people near the end of their days is not spending much time with friends and loved ones. When looking at your life down the line, you may not remember the work you do. You may feel the pressure now, but you will remember the time you spent with your friend.

Move your body; follow an exercise routine

When you exercise, you release endorphins, which fights sadness and depression. It can be boring, noisy, and time consuming, but it is necessary to feel satisfied. Do something you want to do and try to create a daily or weekly routine. Your body and mind need renewal.

Follow these 5 important tips this year; you will definitely see the positive change.
