So while you working make sure to turn off all the social media apps and notifications that pop up when you are working.

7. Take breaks

While you are working when you get bored then you take 15 minutes of breaks to treat your 45 minutes of work.

In these 15 minutes, you take a walk, have some water, and play with the children.

And basically, make sure to spend these 15 minutes productively.

Please while you take breaks don’t spend your time scrolling social media then distract your mind and force your mind to go to your comfort zone, that will harm your day and you lose your productivity.

If you are serious about the work you doing and have to finish that day then you have to take action and say No to your friend.

If you things to go outside then finish your work in time and go outside and have fun, if not then stay and finish the work.

9. Focus on one thing at a time
