Heading into the New Year, it is a common practice to evaluate what worked for you over the past 12 months and what new practices you want to adopt in the coming year. We know you have ambitious goals set for 2022, which is why we want to share some practices that will help you maximize your productivity! From your personal resolutions to your workplace resolutions, here are some ways you can make sure you accomplish your goals in the next 12 months.

Stick to a Healthy Sleep schedule

Sleep and productivity are directly linked. Going to bed on time and waking up early can help you be more productive, focused and happy throughout your workday. Set a consistent time to go to sleep and wake up each day to ensure you get enough sleep. Set a reminder on your phone to prompt you to go to bed and resist the urge to press snooze in the morning when your alarm goes off. It won’t take long for you to feel more energetic and productive!

Do Not Multitask

Dividing your attention between multiple tasks can actually slow down your progress. While you may feel productive when splitting your attention between two tasks, in reality, you are not doing both simultaneously. Your brain is quickly switching from task to task, this can lead to mistakes or taking longer to complete the tasks. No matter how busy your schedule becomes, tackle one task at a time and give it all of your attention.

Find an Accountability Partner

Do you find it hard to stay motivated to accomplish your goals? Try finding an accountability partner. You are more likely to stay on task and accomplish your goals if you tell someone about them. You and your partner can share goals, motivate each other and hold one another accountable for doing whatever it is you want to accomplish in the New year.

Start Using a Digital Calendar

Stay organized this year with a digital calendar to remind you of your to-do list! A digital organizer can help you keep track of recurring monthly activities and new ones that pop up sporadically. Bonus points if you do a nightly brain dump of all the tasks you need to accomplish the following day so you can rest assured you aren’t forgetting anything.

Whether you want to use a digital calendar for personal or professional purposes (or both!), there are many options to look through. Here are a few honorable mentions to start with. Did we mention that they offer a FREE version?

Include Breaks in your Schedule

You may think that working nonstop is the best way to be productive, but what if we told you that taking breaks can actually boost your creativity and productivity? If you feel like you’ve hit a wall in your progress, taking a break from your work and returning to it could allow you the mental space to come up with a great idea. Listen to music, take a walk or do something to relax and enjoy yourself on your break rather than stress out about the work you still have to do.

In addition to breaks during your workday, schedule mental health days, vacations and wellness days. Create some distance from your work and try to fully enjoy yourself without focusing on the tasks waiting on you.

Change your Scenery

If you have been working from home for the past year then you may feel like you have no separation from your professional and personal space. If working from home enables you to procrastinate or distract yourself with household tasks, try a coworking space! Sometimes, a change in scenery is enough to help you get back on track.
