How I Structure A Productive Day

IMG_5863.JPG

Everyone wants to make the most of their day, but building a schedule for yourself can be a challenge. Today I am going to share with you how I structure a productive day. Do note that everyone is different and what works for one person, might not work for you. Implementing a few small things I mention into your day to create it in a way that will be effective for you. Just copying someone else’s routine won’t be of benefit.

I first wake up just before 6 am, I shower and get dressed by 6. Then I make myself a cup of tea with my breakfast and begin work for the day. I work until about 11 am, then take a short break. Next I will make myself a nutritious lunch. Afterwards I go ahead and take a 26 minute nap. This type of nap is called a Nasa Nap, and is used by astronauts to avoid drowsiness after naps. I like to take this nap after my meal just to help the food settle. I continue my work starting again at 1 pm, and I will usually finish right before 2 pm. Then I can enjoy the rest of my day, and I will be into to bed around 11 pm. This schedule allows me to complete so much in one day, by getting all of my work done, and then being able to enjoy myself, and spend time with the people I love. Unfortunately for people who do not work from home this might not be very helpful, but those of you who do are in luck.

How to Straighten Out Your Life

Grabs the keys! Don’t forget to e-mail your boss! You have to turn in your report today! Take a deep breath. At this time of year, it seems to be frantic, and going by so quickly. So with the panic of autumn, today we are going to give you a few tips to help you pull your life together.

Our first tip is to create a daily plan, and of course you’ve heard before to plan your day, but this is a little bit different. Our version of a daily plan calls for you to create two catergories, one for school/work, and one for home. In each of these catergories, create a list of everything you need to accomplish today. This will let you observe what you need to get done, but it will also put your work-load into perspective. Next, create a column beside each category, when you complete each task, put a check in the column beside your categories. If you want, you can even add beside each task, what time you would like to be finished with each task.

At the end of the day, you can analyze what you have gotten done that day, and create what we call the accomplishment ratio. Count how many tasks you were supposed to complete, and the amount of tasks you did complete. After a few days of creating daily plans, your accomplishment ratio numbers should be equal.

Our second tip, which is to take a long walk. How will this help you ask? Well by taking a long walk, you will be able to slow down, breathe at a steady pace, get your blood flowing, and relax. Plus, a lot of successful people have written about the power of a walk, how it can motivate you to get going, and how it can let you analyze what is actually happening, after all, 2016 is almost over!

Productivity

Can’t seem to get anything done? Today, we are going to provide you with a few steps to being productive.

  1. Get organized. If your desk is covered in papers, it can be overwhelming and make it so you do not know where to start. Clean your work surface to make it easier to get things done.
  2. Limit distractions. If you are looking down at your phone every two minutes to check Twitter, the only thing you’ll get is a few retweets. To put down the phone, most people’s main distraction, leave it on silent in a desk while working.
  3. Prioritize. Know what you need to get done, and what is optional for that day. This will make it much easier to distinguish which tasks you need to complete.

We hope this helped, now get to work!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Here at Archaeology Web, our attention has been drawn to the issues of being a workaholic. Jokes aside, workaholicism can be unhealthy, and unreasonably stressful. So, what do you do if you are a workaholic? Today, we are going to provide you with a few simple tips to stop working so much.

1. Many workaholics say that working helps them to relax, and spend time. Try to develop a hobby to keep you distracted and interested in something other than work.

2. Stay optimistic. When you find yourself over-working, tell yourself that you do NOT need to do any work at the moment. What you really need is to stop working. Positive reinforcement has been proven to be effective in the majority of participants.

3. Try PMR (progressive muscle relaxation.) This relaxation technique is suggested by many, since it relaxes both your mind and body. PMR is when you tighten your muscles then relax and work your way down your body. It doesn’t work for all, but for most.

Last but not least, take a break! You definitely deserve it. Best wishes!
