10 Productivity Hacks Backed By Science

  1. These productivity hacks bring better results than sticking to the desk for over eight hours, pounding away at our work.
  2. Skip the big groupthink. Work in smaller groups.
  3. The more people you have on your team, the less productive it becomes. It seems counterintuitive, but it’s true.
  4. When a large group gets together, something called “social loafing” occurs. ŏ
  5. Ɩ Eat Breakfast Every Morning.
  6. When we’re hungry, we’re unfocused and we react more harshly to people around us.
  7. Our outlook is also more negative.
  8. Instead of bringing in donuts for the office, consider low-glycemic foods such as: - Greek yogurt treats - Whole Grains - Fresh Fruits
  9. Take Breaks During The Day.
  10. It seems like bad advice, but the key to productivity isn’t to glue yourself to the desk and work, work, work.
  11. You’d be better off taking breaks. Regularly.
  12. Why do people skip breaks?
  13. Because they feel guilty about taking them.
  14. A good rule of thumb is for every 90 minutes of work, take a 20 minute break.
  15. ȓ Take A Nap.
  16. As the day goes on, we get sluggish and groggy, and try to fix that problem with sugar-laden food or lots of caffeine. That’s not good for anyone.
  17. That’s where naps fit in.
  18. A nap can help you be less tired, of course, but it can also relax and reduce stress.
  19. How should you nap properly?
  20. The best time to take a nap is between 1 and 4 p.m. Your nap should either be for 20 minutes, or more than 90 minutes.
  21. ☼ Exercise right away in the morning.
  22. Some people prefer exercising after work or in the evening, because it fits their schedule best.
  23. However, a recent study suggests exercising in the morning (try 7 a.m.) is your best bet.
  24. If you can’t exercise in the morning (or even if you can!), you should definitely make a point of moving around and exercising at work.
  25. Just seven minutes of exercise can do the trick.
  26. All the physical benefits of exercise — endorphins, warmed-up muscles, increased oxygen intake, more active brains — are an optimal way to start the day.
  27. Look up images of cute animals.
  28. Keep those YouTube videos and pictures of cute animals handy whenever you need a pick-me-up.
  29. When people looked at such images, their “caregiving” nature increased.
  30. That translated into more attention to detail in what they were working on.
  31. With that attention to detail, there was something else that improved: performance.
  32. Ƕ Eat healthy food.
  33. Will healthy food really make you more productive?
  34. Adequate and improved nutrition levels can increase productivity by 20 percent.
  35. Employers can help out by providing healthy snacks instead of processed and sugary foods to their workers.
  36. Pick a day of rest.
  37. Call it a day of rest, call it a stop day — whatever you call it, you need it.
  38. For those who are freelancing or working at home, this is even more so. The temptation to work a little bit every day is hard to overcome.
  39. Not having a day when work is stopped is leading to depression and anxiety.
  40. Constantly working, without stops, will hurt your productivity eventually.
  41. Do only one thing at one time.
  42. Multitasking is a very bad idea. It is not a strength.
  43. Focus on doing one thing at a time. You won’t save time by trying to do two or more at once.
  44. Don’t try to listen to music or watch TV while doing other cognitive activities.
  45. Your brain can’t focus on two cognitive distractions at once.
  46. Don’t imagine yourself a success.
  47. It’s perfectly fine to have a goal and imagine how you’ll get there, but it’s important to not spend a lot of time imagining that you are already a success.
  48. Constantly visualizing or imaging ourselves as a success drains the ambition right out of us.
  49. Positive visualization is great for calming us down in highly negative or stressful situations.
  50. When it comes to being productive, it’s the last thing you want to be doing.
