6 Natural Ways to Boost Productivity
Do you find yourself feeling sluggish when mid-day hits and just can’t seem to recover? Or do you start the week feeling energized but start losing your steam midweek and can’t keep your head up by Friday? Well, we’ve got you covered!
Boosting your productivity levels comes from an array of different actions. From the food you eat, to the sleep you get, to the WAY you work all factor into how productive you are at work and at home with your family.
In addition to the productivity-boosting tips we list below, Parker Naturals has a wonderful, all-natural supplement called Brain Boost which naturally helps your brain function while enhancing memory, focus, clarity, and alertness.
Here are our top 7 all natural ways to boost productivity now:
1. Beetroot Juice
Beetroot has recently become a popular superfood for its many health benefits. But one of the greatest has to be cognitive function. The nitric acid in beetroot juice helps increase blood and oxygen flow to brain improving brain productivity. One study found that one single glass of nitrate-rich beetroot juice could improve cognitive and task performance. (1) If you are looking for an easy and tasty way to get your daily dose of beetroot, try Parker Naturals Beetroot Powder. Just mix it with a glass of water and some lemon and sip it while you work!
2. Stop Multitasking
Although we often think of the ability to multitask as a useful, even important skill, we are now finding the opposite may be true. Some psychologists have found that doing multiple tasks at once can actually lead to a loss in time and productivity. (2) Committing to a single task and completing it before moving on to the next one actually increases your productivity and follow.
3. Try the “Two-Minute” Rule
In addition, committing to one task set time limits for yourself. Entrepreneur Steve Olenski recommends following the "two-minute rule" to make the most out of the time you have at work.
Here’s how it works: Assess your task list and if you see a task or action you know can be done in two minutes or less, do it IMMEDIATELY. Olenski says that completing the task right away actually takes less time than coming back to it later.
4. Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo biloba is an ancient plant extract that has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat a variety of medical conditions, especially circulatory problems and ones related to declining memory. It is also reportedly one of the oldest tree species on earth and is quickly becoming one of the top-selling herbal supplements worldwide.
Many of its most notable benefits are tied to brain function like memory, focus and mental performance. So much so that a report in the International Journal of Phytotherapy and Phytopharmacology said ginkgo biloba is “currently the most investigated and adopted herbal remedy for cognitive disorders.” (5)
So how to do you consume ginkgo biloba? Parker Naturals Brain Boost contains ginkgo biloba as well as DMAE for increased alertness, St. John’s Wort for an elevated mood and much more!
5. Snack on Almonds
In addition to being a healthy midday snack, just one-ounce serving of almonds can give you 37% of your daily vitamin E needs. And vitamin E is an essential nutrient for protecting your brain against aging. (3)
A study in 2014 found that higher nut consumption was associated with better attention and cognitive function in women 70 and older. (4) So keep your brain young and your waistline trim by snacking on almonds when you’re feeling peckish.
6. Take Exercise Breaks Regularly
It has been found that using work time to stretch or take a short walk may actually improve productivity. If you can, schedule times during the week to get up from your desk and do something physical. It not only gets your blood pumping but can also help clear your mind and give you the focus you need to finish the day’s tasks.
These are just a few of the ways to help keep your brain on track throughout the week. All of these tips along with a healthy diet and regular sleep can boost your productivity immediately.
