Sleep is one of the most powerful tools for boosting productivity. Ensure you are getting quality sleep. Establishing a night and morning routine can help your body wind down from the day and prepare you for adequate rest.

Take Breaks

Research is shown that those who regularly take breaks are more focused when they return, and their stress levels are lower than those who do not take breaks. Each hour, plan to take a break whether it be a walk outside, a quick workout, or reading a book. Implementing regular breaks can help reduce symptoms of burnout.
