Feeling post-summer blues? If you’re lacking in energy and motivation, a refocus could be just what you need to reenergise, boost your productivity and get back on track to achieve your goals.

You may no longer be at school, but September often brings motivation for a fresh start with that back-to-school feeling.

With summer slowly becoming a distant memory, if your goals have taken a back seat to the summer BBQs, now is the perfect time to reset your focus and motivation so you can get back to peak productivity and achieve your goals.

Host of the UK’s number 1 peak performance podcast Take FLIGHT, Mark Whittle comments:

“Productivity doesn’t happen by accident. Accomplishing all the things you need and want to do requires continuous energy and focus. On the days when we are tired, frustrated and struggling for motivation, there are steps we can take to re-energize and perform at our best.” 

Here are 6 tips to level up your productivity to help achieve your goals:

  1. Visualise your goals

In life and work, success begins with a goal. Big or small, goals give us purpose and, like a compass, headed in the right direction. Studies show that visualisation – or the practice of seeing your goal as already complete – helps to manifest success by improving motivation, concentration and performanceii. Remember, if you can see it – then you achieve your goals.

  1. Find your WHY

If you’re feeling unmotivated, likelihood is that you don’t know your ‘why’. Your why is something that gives you purpose and helps keep you motivated on the days when you don’t even feel like getting out of bed. Understanding the why behind your goals makes it easier to stay focussed and passionate about what you do because you feel like you have a bigger purpose than just the, perhaps menial, daily tasks. 

  1. Become aware of your habits

Success doesn’t happen overnight, but it’s the small actions each day that get you closer to your goals. The trouble is, these small actions can take you two different ways. If you’re not being productive, you may have picked up some unhelpful habits that are sabotaging your focus. Perhaps you’re getting distracted by your phone or you find yourself easily stuck in a Netflix binge. Try to catch yourself whenever these distractions occur and refocus on your task, making concentration your new, more constructive habit.

  1. Fuel your body

Did you know that eating the right foods can increase brainpower, motivation, and overall productivity by up to 20 percent?iii If you’re serious about leveling up your productivity and achieving success, try adding more of these brain-boosting foods into your daily diet such as eggs, nuts, berries, and avocados. These foods could be just the lift your body is looking for when it is struggling to stay energised and focused.

  1. Find an accountability buddy

Sometimes we all need a little support to stay motivated. An accountability buddy can help you stay on track by keeping you accountable to your goals and perhaps help you brainstorm solutions when you hit a roadblock. When you’ve made an agreement with someone else, it’s often harder to let them down than it is just yourself. So, this could be the perfect driver to boost productivity.

  1. Try an energy supplement with clinically proven ingredients

Ongoing stress can make us feel sluggish and negatively impact our performance and motivation. Pro Plus® Ultra is the UK’s first cognitive energy enhancer to contain a unique blend of vitamins and botanicals, that are clinically proven to increase focus and stave off both mental and physical fatigue, aiding productivity. Thanks to the powerful adaptogen ashwagandha, Pro Plus® Ultra helps to reduce stress levels and aid mental clarity, helping you power through your to-do list. 

Commenting on the unique benefits of Pro Plus® Ultra, Mark Whittle: 

“Whatever work you do, there are times when the pressure’s on and you can’t afford to slow down. That’s when a supplement can help you to find your focus and feel energised all day. For example, B Vitamins have been shown to boost energy, whilst adaptogens, such as ashwagandha, are known to clear your mind and improve your concentration.

You can power up with these essential ingredients, in just one convenient capsule thanks to Pro Plus® Ultra – a unique blend of performance-enhancing ingredients such as Vitamins B6 & B12, ashwagandha, and slow-release caffeine.
