There are five main rules. There are many myths and statements about productivity. But which of them really work? Discuss Neuroscientist gave advice on how to get more done in less time© Verywell Mind

Music in the background is useful. Many people are more productive when they have some music playing in the background while they get things done. When we try to concentrate on a task, we can still be distracted by any sounds around us (if we work in complete silence). However, when we turn on music in the background, our unconscious attention will be directed precisely to it and we will no longer pay attention to random sounds. It is also important to take into account the type of music. One of the best options is video game soundtracks.

It's better to wake up when you've had enough sleep than at 4 a.m.. It is important to sleep 8 hours a day. If you get enough sleep, it will improve your memory, general well-being, help you concentrate, lift your mood, and reduce irritability. All this increases productivity.

Take a walk and also decorate your workplace with plants. Many studies confirm that people are more productive when they have plants in their office. This is due to the fact that when we look at greenery, it occupies our attention, but does not load the brain. If there are no plants at work, then you can take a walk to the park to look at them.

Diet and exercise improve productivity. Often diets aimed at increasing productivity look ridiculous: for example, because they contain strange foods. But if you don't pay attention to this aspect, research shows that improving your diet and regular physical activity are good for your brain.

Just get into your “zone.” Everyone is different, so what works for you may not work for someone else. The most productive state of mind is a state of flow. In this case, the person achieves maximum concentration on the task, whatever it may be. Due to this, he also demonstrates the maximum level of skill in its implementation. But it’s not easy to do all this, most likely due to the fact that the brain is doing dozens of things at the same time.
