Why am I less productive at work?
Do you find yourself constantly checking your phone, browsing the internet, or staring blankly at your computer screen during work hours? You're not alone. In fact, most of us have probably experienced some level of "slacking off" at work. But why do we do it? Here are some relatable reasons why we sometimes find ourselves declining in productivity at work:
Let's face it, some tasks at work can be monotonous and repetitive. When we don't feel challenged or engaged, it's easy to lose focus and start slacking off.
On the other hand, sometimes we have too much on our plate and feel overwhelmed by our workload. This can lead to procrastination and avoidance of certain tasks.
With the rise of technology and social media, it's easier than ever to get distracted at work. Notifications from our phones or social media platforms can take us away from our work and lead to slacking off.
Lack of Motivation
When we don't feel invested in our work or don't see the value in what we're doing, it can be difficult to stay motivated and focused.
Working long hours or constantly pushing ourselves to meet deadlines can lead to burnout, which can cause us to lose focus and become less productive.
