What we spend our time on after work is important. Here are a few tips on how to be productive after work hours.
Exercising is one of the most cliche ‘tips’ for having a productive life. But it is really important to follow a fitness regime. It helps boost confidence and creativity.
Don’t spend all of your free time being a couch potato
Go out to new environments and meet people so you can have non-virtual conversations. Even if you don’t want to talk to people, just being in a new environment can help you learn. You notice things that help you grow intellectually.
Connect with nature
Nature is beautiful and replenishes your energy. You must have been breathing in air-conditioned air for the whole day or staying in an enclosed space. That is not an ideal way to live, so nature helps you become your best self and produce your best work.
Have an unplugged day/ time of day
This means you will have to literally disconnect from any devices and the internet in general. Technology is amazing, but many successful people advice having unplugged time. It helps to renew your mind, body, and spirit.
Lastly, routines are important
Having an evening or night routine is as important as having the morning one. This sets you up for a productive and creative day, the next day. The quality of work you put out is usually affected by how you feel. So if you feel distracted or run down, you become less productive. Take time to rest and take care of yourself.
