Techniques to optimize your everyday work – how to master all tasks in a relaxed manner
For many people, time is the most precious commodity in the stress of everyday life. But how can you get some air these days? We have put together the best tips for optimization here.
TIME SAVINGS THROUGH ACCURATE ANALYSIS
The time factor is often given too little importance when it comes to optimizing processes, avoiding sources of error and achieving the greatest possible efficiency.
The biggest time wasters are not getting started with new software systems or familiarizing yourself with new areas of responsibility - initial errors and a comparatively high expenditure of time are normal here and are taken into account - but especially the work that belongs to the routine.
Careless mistakes often creep into daily and repetitive tasks. The disadvantage here is that precisely these task areas are hardly checked because of the supposed certainty of mastering them "in your sleep", so that such mistakes are rarely noticed and are often repeated unnoticed.
In order to optimize your everyday work, you should take a little more time than usual, especially at the beginning, to check exactly these routine tasks for sources of error. There's no need to be discouraged when you actually find it; you have just taken a first step towards optimizing the way you work.
In the future, you will either automatically notice similar mistakes more quickly or you will no longer make them at all.
A REAL WORKPLACE
A tidy desk and an orderly filing system not only save valuable time that you would otherwise waste searching, but also contribute to a working atmosphere in which you feel comfortable.
Balance has a positive effect on performance.
It also gives you the feeling of security, knowing where to find something or where to look if you have any questions at any time.
ENSURE FRESH AIR REGULARLY
Adequate oxygenation is probably one of the factors that is still most often neglected.
Apart from the fact that fresh air can prevent tiredness, it also plays an important role in terms of a healthy indoor climate.
Since pathogens stay in closed rooms for a particularly long time, regular air exchange is essential for them Health and the associated performance.
CAFEATED BEVERAGES LIKE COFFEE OR GUAYUSA TEA
Contrary to the previously widespread opinion that caffeine is generally unhealthy, it can be advisable to have a cup of coffee, guayusa or green tea, depending on personal preference.
Caffeine stimulates the release of endogenous hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. Even a dose of a few hundred milligrams can improve thinking skills. Blood pressure rises, heartbeat accelerates.
However, you should not overdo it, as too much coffee can irritate the stomach lining. In addition, unbound caffeine in excessive doses can even trigger anxiety in extreme cases. So, minimize the consumption of coffee and other sources of caffeine where the caffeine can be directly absorbed by the body.

We need to sleep to regenerate.
The body needs time for this, ideally seven to eight hours.
In times of important exams during your studies, deadlines in the company or important presentations to customers, this is often easier said than done.
Relaxation exercises such as meditation techniques, breath control or even a short power nap can help here - you should probably avoid the latter if you have colleagues and superiors around you all the time.
But as paradoxical as it sounds: Even if short breaks in between cannot replace a full night's sleep, they have a more positive effect on your performance than if you work through several hours.
If you find yourself in an environment where even short recovery times are not tolerated, you can go to the toilet if necessary.
DARE TO ASK QUESTIONS
No one is perfect.
If you don't know how to best complete a task, it's always a good idea to ask instead of trying to "muddle through".
On the one hand, this gives you the opportunity to really understand an issue and to grow with your tasks, and on the other hand, you show that you have a real interest in optimizing your work processes.
People who are not afraid to ask questions themselves are often asked for advice by others, since there is mutual trust, which in turn has a positive effect on the working atmosphere.
AVOID TWISTING UP
Wanting too much at once is never advisable.
This is probably truer of working life than anything else.
Division of tasks and a well-structured process help to maintain an overview. Whenever possible, you should always finish one task before moving on to the next.
Because even if you think you are always fully concentrating on what you have in front of you: The part of your brain that we colloquially refer to as the "back of the head" continues to work and also deals with the tasks that have already started.
This can have a negative effect on your concentration.
With the steps listed above, nothing should stand in the way of a relaxed working day.
