As a former nine to five worker, I know the stresses of the work day can make you feel as if you haveto work as hard as possible to complete all the tasks before it's time to clock out. With looming deadlines, tough clients, and big projects on your plate, not being productive is the last thing you want to risk doing. Butworking longer and harder might not be the ways to eliminate those unproductive days. Unfortunately, there are several office mistakes that are making you less productive that are more common than you may realize.
When I worked a desk job as a publicist, I was always stressed. I suffered from high anxiety, excessive migraines, and an increased amount of depression because I didn't enjoy what I was doing. I would wake up in the morning stressed and tired from the night before because I was forced to take work home and be available throughout the night. Essentially, there was no time off even after I left the office. Since I essentially was working when I should have been relaxing at home, when I got to work the next day, my productivity suffered tremendously because I never had time to shake the stress from the day before.
If your productivity is suffering in your workplace, or even if you don't realize it's suffering quite yet, these 11 mistakes will help you notice your transgressions and encourage you to make a change, ASAP.
