Productivity Hack: Switch It Up

September 26, 2017

Career Advice

We’ve already covered one of our favorite productivity hacks: a change of scenery. But here’s another great tip: switch it up! We’re so used to the monotony of our daily routines, that it’s easy to feel uninspired. Get out of that slump by making small changes that can reinvigorate your mind and your productivity level. Here are some of our favorite ways to switch things up during our work day:

  • Flip-flop your day: do your morning tasks in the afternoon and vice-versa.
  • Drive to work a different way–or better yet, bike or take the bus instead.
  • If you usually eat at work, go out for lunch or go home if it’s possible.
  • Hold your standing meetings in a different meeting room each week.
  • Invite members of another team (that you wouldn’t usually collaborate with) to a brainstorm session.
  • If you usually workout after work, try exercising in the morning or during lunch.
  • They working from the cafeteria or a shared lounge for the afternoon.
  • Try a standing desk if you usually sit.
  • Ask for feedback from someone you usually wouldn’t.
  • Join a committee or take on a project that is outside your comfort zone.
