4. Prioritize your work
All tasks are not equally important, they all have different priorities. Some are urgent, some are meager and can be done later. Segregate tasks based on their importance and work towards them accordingly. Don’t give much time for completing unimportant task and wrap them in 10-15 mins or even lesser. This gives you extra time which you can spend in other activities.
5. Tune Out
