It’s no lie that staying productive during the work week can at times be difficult, especially when you’re in the midst of the Holiday Season. While the Holidays are a FOX favorite here at HQ, it also happens to be our busiest season. Consider yourself gifted because our Chief Operating Officer (COO), Jenni Olivero is serving up her tips on how she stays productive during the work week that she hopes will give you the motivation you need to close out the year on a positive note!
Believe it or not, but the way you eat really sets the tone for your productivity. If you're the type who typically snacks on carb-heavy, gluten rich foods, you might later find yourself dozing off by the mid-afternoon. Consider munching on vegetables like celery with peanut butter or making a protein shake or smoothie that, if you follow the right recipe, will give you enough energy and keep you focused for the entire day.
As COO of BOXFOX, my employees rely on me to stay organized on all of our company’s operations. Since being on top of things is a huge part of my job, I always make sure to keep a lengthy to-do list by my deskside at all times. This way, I’m able to track both short-term and long-term goals and projects so there’s always something for me to be working on. A fun activity I like to do is keep a weekly accomplishments document for myself and my team so that there’s always something to feel proud of at the end of every week!
I’m a huge fitness junkie, so no matter how busy I am, I always make time to go to the gym or workout, even if it’s for 30 minutes. Working out and staying fit allows me to keep my mind clear and in the right headspace so I can be totally focused by the time I get to the office. During the day, I always try to take our puppy, Eleanor out for even a 5-minute walk so that I keep my muscles active, and I have a quick break to keep me on target to staying motivated!
Water, Water, Water
In the midst of my day, I always make sure to keep my reusable water bottle at my desk. If you find yourself getting distracted or tired during the day, it probably isn't a lack of motivation, it might just be because you’re dehydrated. This is why it’s so important to stay hydrated, because the amount of water you drink will give you the energy you need to stay on target of your daily tasks. You lucky Fox, we’ve got a ton of eco-friendly reusable water bottles on build a BOXFOX for you to get to gifting yourself or a coworker today!
