Northeast Consulting Group, Inc Reviews: Healthy Habits for Increased Productivity!

There is a general assumption throughout people in the working world that you are only working hard if you are working strenuous and long hours. If you leave work completely emotionally and physically exhausted. This is not something that Northeast Consulting Group, Inc believes to be true. We believe in working smarter not always just harder. We found this article from Under 30 CEO that models our beliefs.

  Anyone in the working world knows that finding time to eat healthy, exercise, and keep up with the daily workload is huge challenge. But, adjusting certain behaviors in your daily life can increase your performance and productivity at work. Who wouldn’t want that?

 

1. Eat right to increase focus and stamina.

Struggling at the work place? Running out of steam before the workday ends? Find it a challenge to concentrate? Productivity at work is closely linked to energy levels on the job. Your mentality goes down when you are tired or hungry. So naturally, the output of work suffers when you are stressed. For greater productivity at work, use healthy eating to reinforce your physical condition.

Limit sugar and junk food. Eating too much sugar can lead to inconsistent energy levels throughout the day. The short-term impact of a glazed doughnut or two might seem like an energy boost, but the long-term affects outweigh the initial benefits.

Limit carb heavy lunches. We’ve all heard of the dreaded “food coma” right? There’s a reason for it! Carb heavy lunches slow you down in the middle of the afternoon because your body sees it as junk food!

 

2. Eat Breakfast!

Breakfast can start your day off on the right foot! Rather than loading up on caffeine, balance your intake of fruits, grains, and cereals.

 

3. Moderate activity enhances productivity

If you’re unlucky enough to be stuck at a desk all day and your daily tasks revolve around computer work and other stationary tasks, find a way to move around!

Exercise at your desk! It may seem unconventional, but desk workouts enhance productivity. This keeps your blood flowing and your body healthy!

Utilize your breaks and lunch hour! Your lunch break gives you the opportunity to reinvigorate yourself for the afternoon workload. Walk during your breaks, stand up, go up and down the stairs a few times, or take a stroll around the building. Proactive efforts to eat right and stay fit promote good health and higher employee productivity!

 

All in all, there is something to be said to the old motto, “eat good, feel good.” If you’ve been feeling slugglish at work or like you haven’t been working to your full potential, try out these simple tips and immediately change your performance!

Northeast Consulting Group, Inc Reviews: How to Be Successful & Not Burnt Out!

Want to still work hard, be successful, but not be stressed out and exhausted? Most of us do. Northeast Consulting Group, Inc found this article in Entrepreneur Magazine about how planning ahead and working smarter are the keys to keep you going without getting tired or frazzled.

 

1. Weigh the payoff of every task.

Make sure the time you spend doing something aligns with your business goals

Don’t just do something to pass time, do something that is going to benefit your future within your company and be meaningful to your success

 

2. Learn to delegate!

If you aren’t using the people around you, START!

If you’re in a leadership role, the reason you have people working with you is for them to help lighten your load. The best leaders are the best delegators.

Also, remember, you CAN’T control EVERYTHING

 

3. Rein in after-hours messaging.

Lay some ground rules.

Let your people know that you won’t respond to weekend emails, texts, or phone calls that are business related until Sunday night.

For most leaders, this is hard to resist, but it is important to have a work life balance and not let those areas cross over into one another.

 

4. Make time off non-negotiable.

Reserve part of your weekend to unwind.

Everyone needs a little bit of down time. Find something else that you’re passionate about or makes you feel good to occupy your time and give you satisfaction outside of the workplace.

 

5. Leave some work on the table.

The world WILL NOT slip off it’s axis if you do not complete a low priority task before you leave.

You can either have a business that is “complete” or you can have a business that is “growing” — What would you rather have?

All in all, this article focused on the importance of giving yourself some free time and space. People are more productive when they work smarter and for less hours, than they are spending all of their time at the office for a 70 hour work week. Working 70 hours a week leaves an individual, their families, and friends unhappy. Unhappy people aren’t productive. So, plan your week and reserve a little time for yourself, your family, your friends, and for what is really important in your life!
