Get into a routine of planning each day as this will ensure that you use your time productively. Write a to-do list for the day and order each task according to its priority. Once you have completed one task – tick it off your list – you’ll find this will be a great motivator.

Take a break

Taking a break will improve your productivity in the workplace.

Enjoy your commute
