Productivity is not the set amount of hours we stay in the office or university for, it is the ability to make the most use of your workday. It requires us to be deliberate about how we manage our time.
How many students or working professionals take time off for themselves?
I’ve heard several women and other people proudly tell me that they work from 8 AM and reach home back only at 9 PM.
Is productivity working for these set amount of hours? And why is working for so long glorified?
Well, productivity is not the set amount of hours we stay in the office or university for, it is the ability to make the most use of your workday. It requires us to be deliberate about how we manage our time.
Well, in the 21st century, thanks to Covid-19, we discovered new modes of work that could be far better than traditional ones.
I prefer working from home, what do you think?
I have seen so many posts online telling me to sign up for online courses, learn a new skill and use my extra time productively.
While this is certainly helpful, trying to be productive can be extremely stressful. I’m sure people who already go through stress and anxiety might find it hard to be productive even during their free time.
I think that trying to do everything at once and taking up too many tasks will have a negative impact, as opposed to taking things slowly. As much as productivity is important, taking it slow and giving importance to rest, and our mental health is equally important.
Taking too much on our plate, more than we can handle, will eventually lead to burnout.
On average, people who say that they have major work-based stress problems sleep thirty minutes less per night compared to those who have less or no work-based stress.
We all do that, don’t we? Everyone procrastinates, it is part of our brain function.
We cannot be on hyper-work mode 24/7, the mind needs rest. Just like our smartphones malfunction temporarily when multiple tabs are open on it, our brains tend to cease working for a few moments now and then.
Statistics say that 95% of the population in the U.S. procrastinate from time to time.
Did you know that it can make you more productive?
It helps you to set goals, prioritize them, save time, work more efficiently and creatively.
It’s always good to know how to procrastination productively!
I know that it’s simple to say, but it might take time and effort to accomplish it, but in the end. And it is worth giving a try, isn’t it?

As parents, we put a piece of our hearts out into this world and into the custody of the teachers at school and tuition and can only hope and pray that they treat them well.
Trigger Warning: This speaks of physical and emotional violence by teachers, caste based abuse, and contains some graphic details, and may be triggering for survivors.
When I was in Grade 10, I flunked my first preliminary examination in Mathematics. My mother was in a panic. An aunt recommended the Maths classes conducted by the Maths sir she knew personally. It was a much sought-after class, one of those classes that you signed up for when you were in the ninth grade itself back then, all those decades ago. My aunt kindly requested him to take me on in the middle of the term, despite my marks in the subject, and he did so as a favour.
Math had always been a nightmare. In retrospect, I wonder why I was always so terrified of math. I’ve concluded it is because I am a head in the cloud person and the rigor of the step by step process in math made me lose track of what needed to be done before I was halfway through. In today’s world, I would have most probably been diagnosed as attention deficit. Back then we had no such definitions, no such categorisations. Back then we were just bright sparks or dim.
Pathaan touted as SRK’s comeback has been in the news for mixed reasons. Right from the hype around SRK’s comeback and special mentions his body contours; yet I can't watch it!
The movie touted as SRK’s comeback has been in the news for mixed reasons. Right from the hype around the movie being SRK’s comeback and special mentions his body contours and even more than the female lead!
For me, it’s not about Deepika’s bikini colour or was-it-needed skin show. It’s about meaningful content that I find is missing big time. Not just this movie, but a spate of cringe-worthy narratives passed off as ‘movies’ in the recent past. I feel insulted, and not because I am a devoutly religious person or a hardcore feminist, but because I feel the content insults my intelligence.
But before everything else, I am a 90s kid who in the case of movies (and maybe more) is stuck in time as it wrapped around me then and the gamut has too hard an exterior for me to crack it open!
