Using a calendar to plan each day and colour-coding activities like work sessions and planned meetings can help you keep track of your tasks. At Driverseat, we make extensive use of the Google Suite workplace. We use Google Calendar, Shared Drive, and Gmail. Doing so allows us to stay organized and keep our communication and collaboration on track.
A minimalist approach to your workspace can help you manage the space and find what you need when you need it. Everything has a place in a tidy environment, which boosts efficiency and productivity.
Create A Designated Workspace
Ensure you have a dedicated workspace with a place for your desk and supplies. When working from home, keep your work environment neat and limit distractions such as television, pets, or family members entering the room.
Manage your time by looking through your daily to-do list and determining which tasks are most important while reducing the number of urgent tasks. Allow enough time for yourself to complete tasks so that you may disconnect from work at the end of the day, knowing that you were productive.
Self-care and rebalancing your life after a stressful work week is critical. You can revitalize and rest by ensuring that you eat healthy, get adequate sleep, drink enough water, and exercise each day.
