Besides colds and flu, rainy weather also brings in the “lazy syndrome”. Most of us tend to stay under the sheets and enjoy the “bed weather” rather than go to school or work. No wonder late and absences are high during this season. So to help you fight laziness and be more productive, here are some tips:
- Stay Healthy
Rainy season causes various diseases and you cannot concentrate on what you are doing if you are sick. So to avoid acquiring colds and flu, drink lots of water, take your vitamins, get enough sleep, and exercise whenever possible. It will not only give you energy but will also lessen your excuses for not working at your best.
- Make a To-Do List
List your tasks for the day and make to you finish each item by the end of the day. Remove distractions and don’t let the gloomy weather affect you. Finish one task at a time and you’re done before you know it.
- Take a Break
If you feel unproductive, instead of staring blankly at your monitor or sleeping, take a walk, socialize, or drink hot coffee or choco. Go back to work when you’re feeling energized.
Unwind and relieve yourself from stress by doing what you love. Go on a date, watch movie, or go out of town with your family this weekend so when you get back to work, you’ll feel fresh and inspired.
- Have an Energy Booster
Grab something sweet or gulp drinks with caffeine to boost your energy. A bar of chocolate, hot coffee or an energy drink will help you knock the sleepiness out of you.
- Change Your Perspective
It’s a matter of perspective. If you let laziness kick in, then most likely you’ll spend the day looking at the clock waiting for it to hit the 5 p.m. mark. Maintain a positive attitude and make the most out of your time.
Don’t let the rain affect you and wash away your productivity! You have the control over yourself so it’s all in the mind. Enjoy the weather and make the most out your time.
