Have you ever wished for a few more minutes in the day to get through your never-ending to-do list? Would you like your workday to be just a little more productive and a lot less stressful? Well, with these simple tips, you’ll learn how to improve your efficiency at work by making small changes in other areas of your life.
Drinking less coffee
- Drink more water.
- Drink tea.
- Eat breakfast, it will help you feel full for longer and avoid the temptation to eat a sugary snack later on in the day.
- Eat less sugar, this includes added sugars from sweeteners like honey or syrups, but also natural sugars found in foods such as fruits and vegetables. The average American consumes 22 teaspoons of sugar per day; that’s almost double what’s recommended as an upper limit for healthy adults (12%). Try cutting back on foods with added sugar until you get used to eating less refined carbohydrates; then try lowering your intake slowly over time so that your body can adjust to the change without experiencing negative side effects like headaches or fatigue. Try substituting white flour products with whole wheat alternatives – these are nutritionally superior and contain more fiber which helps prevent overeating by making you feel fuller faster!
- Eat more protein-rich foods (meats) at every meal – they help fill you up while providing essential nutrients like iron, zinc and B vitamins which regulate metabolism functions like energy production inside cells! Save room though because they’re usually high in fat too.. so don’t worry if there isn’t enough room left once all those nutrients are accounted for: just add some extra greens instead 🙂 You might need some extra time for preparation since most people aren’t used eating meat every day (especially if they’ve been vegan/vegetarian before). If cooking isn’t possible then try prepping ahead with something easy like fresh chicken breast cutlets which come ready-to-go from grocery stores nowadays.”
- Make sure you have a good mattress and pillow. A mattress is the foundation of your sleep, and if you don’t get proper support, it can affect all aspects of your life—from work to relationships. You should replace your mattress every 8-10 years; look for one with an accreditation from the National Sleep Foundation (NSF). Check out their guide here or use this helpful quiz to find one that’s right for you: [link](https://www.sleepfoundation.org/good-sleep/choosing-mattress). For pillows, choose a soft pillowcase and opt for down if you like softness, or synthetic if it’s more important to have a cool head during the night (they tend not to retain heat as readily).
- Get a duvet instead of sheets and blankets: Duvets are more comfortable because they’re filled with feathers or down rather than cotton fibers like regular sheets are. They also keep us warmer in wintertime by trapping heat better than any other type of bedding material does! If possible purchase one made from goose down which tends not only provide superior insulation but also lasts longer than alternative materials such as polyester fleece material found on cheaper alternatives sold at big box stores like Walmart.”
Eating more vegetables
- Eat more vegetables.
- Eat more fruit.
- Avoid processed foods.
- Eat more fish, nuts and whole grains instead of red meat or poultry to get the protein you need without the saturated fat found in animal products (including red meat and poultry).
- Add beans, legumes and lentils to your diet because they are high in fiber as well as protein which helps keep you feeling full longer so that you won’t overeat when it comes time for dinner time!
Commuting without crying
- Avoid rush hour.
- Plan your route ahead of time.
- Use public transportation if you can, or carpool with friends who live close by.
- Listen to music while you drive (or better yet, sing along).
- Read a book or magazine on your commute. If you’re feeling really ambitious, try a new recipe!
- Take a nap in the passenger seat during long drives.
- Bring a friend along for company on your commute home from work—just make sure not to talk about work or anything too personal during this time! That said…don’t be afraid to be honest about how much fun commuting is with the right person in the car with you! It’s even easier now that some cars come equipped with WiFi hotspots built right into them so there will always be something interesting happening no matter where they go.”

- Work on projects you are interested in.
- Work on projects that are challenging.
- Work on projects that are important to you.
- Work on projects that make a difference.
- Work on projects that are collaborative.
- Work on projects that are fun
