Summary: When you are in the office you want to be able to work at the top of your game. A lot of what goes into becoming more productive comes from what you do outside of the office.
The workplace can get stressful and it can seem like each day you are presented with a new set of challenges to take on. Keeping that in mind, being able to work smarter is a skill that can ultimately make your work life more manageable. Develop these habits outside of the office to become a more efficient employee.
Leave Your Work in the Office
Constantly thinking about work might seem like a good way to become a better employee but it is surprisingly counterproductive. If you are still thinking about the challenges you faced at work and brainstorming what you will do tomorrow, after you have already justify the office, you will not have a chance to let your mind rest. By leaving work-related materials and thoughts in the office you are allowing your mind to recharge. This can actually help you come up with more creative and effective solutions when you return to work.
Staying active is one of the most underrated things you can do out of the office. Working out can increase blood flow throughout the body, strengthening your muscles and mind. Lifting weights or jogging for as little as twenty minutes can drastically boost your mood and critical thinking abilities.
If you live close to your office, try walking or cycling to work a few days out of the week. This might be slower than simply driving to the office but the exercise can energize you. This is especially important if a good portion of your work day is spent sitting behind a desk.
