Celebrate #WorldProductivityDay with Koofr

Defying procrastination and boosting your productivity can help you reach goals you thought were impossible to reach before. On World Productivity Day we celebrate being productive or striving to be productive. We want to give you some tips on how Koofr can help you achieve that.

We write about productivity and how to increase it with the help of Koofr regularly. And while #WorldProductivityDay is not a formal holiday, we can still celebrate it by re-evaluating our choices concerning productivity and by becoming productivity-conscious. Procrastinating is adding extra stress to our days and we all know stress is bad for us. If you need additional motivation to be productive, ask yourself: "What would I do, if I had an hour more of free time each day?". Defying procrastination and boosting productivity can help you reach goals you thought were impossible to reach before.

But that is not all. Remember that using technology and working long hours is far from everything you can and should do. Sitting at your desk all day might seem like you are being productive. But, working extremely long hours will actually hinder your productivity. Instead, try taking a break and recharging. Boost your productivity with exercise to increase your focus, take a walk or listen to music or do something creative. And remember, multitasking does not help anyone.

Happy #WorldProductivityDay!
