There are only so many hours in the day, so it is important to make the most of your time.
To get through your workload, you can either work longer, or work more efficiently.
I don’t know many people who would want to work longer hours than they already do,
so here are my top 3 tips to increase office productivity!
1: Setting Self Imposed Deadlines
The first step to doing this, is knowing how long each of your tasks takes to complete. When you know that, you can set yourself a manageable deadline to complete them within. You will be amazed by how productive you can be when you have a focus, and you know the clock is ticking.
But, it can be really hard to estimate how much time has passed while you have been working. Help yourself stick to your deadlines by keeping a clock nearby, or by setting a timer or alarm.
Once you have completed your task within your deadline, reward yourself with a little break. It will recharge your batteries and allow you to focus 100% on the next task.
Stressed and sore bodies are not productive bodies. A workplace chair massage is not a luxury, it is actually a productivity booster. With just 15-minutes of chair massage, you can reduce stress, increase alertness and focus, improve sleep, help sore and tight muscles, and enhance your immunities to germs. Not a bad return on 15 short minutes!
Let’s be brutally honest for a minute, if your employer takes good care of you, then you are going to work as hard as you can for them. A regular workplace chair massage will ensure your body is looked after as you sit for hours on end at a desk. If you aren’t hurting, and you aren’t stressed, it is far easier to focus on your work and become more productive.

3: Removing Distractions
Did you know that every time you get interrupted, it can take you several minutes to completely refocus? Think of all the time you are wasting refocusing instead of doing. To increase your office productivity, minimize distractions and remove the need to double handle a task.
If something comes in that will only take 2 minutes to complete, do it right then and there. Then it is off your plate. Spending that 2 minutes to smash it out will save you heaps of time in the long run as you won’t have to familiarize yourself with it later on.
Try to prevent distractions by:
- Only checking your email at set times during the day
- Switching off your phone (or put it on silent) for set periods
- Staying away from Social Media! Or have a specific time during the day where you post on and check your business accounts
- Have set office hours where you can’t be interrupted
- Close your office door
