How To Cut The Habits That Cut Productivity

When it comes to productivity in the modern world, we have all been handed a double-edged sword.

On one hand, we have all the information we could ever need at our fingertips. On the other hand, we have all the information we could ever need at our fingertips. When it comes to psychology, those social media tabs you have open in the background are far more distracting than people like to admit.

Experts told The Atlantic that having extra tabs open drains your ability to focus. Whether or not you realize it, navigating the tabs on your browser takes mental energy, especially when there are so many of them open. Try keeping just one tab open at any given time, and test the difference for yourself. Beyond that, you may need more than one tab open, but be aware that every piece of information your brain needs to process could be used for other processes.

Another big thing that grinds productivity to a halt is a lack of sleep. A recent study revealed that just 16 minutes of sleep lost can affect your cognitive functions. The easiest way to deal with this is to limit the amount of light you are exposed to in the evening. Your body will thank you for turning off the TV and allowing yourself to sleep more.
