How To Recover From An Unproductive Day

Do Something Small
If you’re not up to dealing with the big tasks, do something small; strike those two minute tasks off your to-do list and get something done today. Clear your schedule by doing the smaller, less time consuming tasks, which will save you time during the rest of the week.


Do Some Thinking
Maybe the problem isn’t you but your routine; think about your most productive hours and how you can use them to your advantage. If you’re forcing yourself to get up early when really you’re better working late at night, switch your routine around and make it work for you.


Do Some Planning
We’re often unproductive because we don't know what we're supposed to be doing. Sit down with your planner and work out how you can cover lost ground. Organise your work schedule to plan out the next few days; if you know exactly what you’re supposed to be doing and when, you’ll avoid any more unproductive moments.


Do Not Worry About It
We all have unproductive days occasionally and if it’s not a habit, don’t sweat it - strike the day off and forget about it. Come back to your work tomorrow with refreshed enthusiasm; once in a while we just need a bit of time to slack off and that’s OK.
