Can a Creative Hobby Boost Your Job Productivity?
We all want to be productive at work, right?
But productivity is fleeting. We have to work to maintain it.
At the risk of sounding cliché, productivity must be nurtured.
And in times of great uncertainty, a creative hobby may well be the productivity enhancer we’ve all been waiting for.
Why Is Productivity So Important?
Most of us want to be able to get our work done, and get it done well.
We want to perform our job tasks at a high level of quality in the shortest amount of time.
Easier said than done, though.
And as countless Americans adapt to working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m here to help boost your productivity.
Find Your Creative Quarantine Hobby
Quarantine isn’t over in most states. Things aren’t back to the proverbial “normal” just yet.
And so, if you haven’t already, I urge you to find your creative quarantine hobby.
You don’t have to commit to just one thing. You could, for example:
· Dust off your camera—or, if your budget allows, invest in a new one. You can even use your smartphone, and document everything from wildlife to the coolest architecture in your city. (I most recently photographed a fox and some moose; it was a good time.)
Note: Please wear a mask in public and practice social distancing.
· Pick up an instrument! One of Neil Diamond’s former bandmates has generously been helping me blow off steam musically these past few months, and while my neighbors might hate me, practicing on breaks during the workday has been hugely beneficial.
· Create something! As a teenaged babysitter back in the day, my charges and I loved to papier-mâché recycled bottles, wait for our gooey concoctions to dry, and paint them. Turns out this niche craft is still fun as an adult—in front of Netflix, even. Who knew?
