We’ve found a double whammy of lovely design and handy tips for productivity with Fast Company’s 15 Habits That Will Totally Transform Your Productivity.
if you’re looking for inspiration for web design, animation and how to boost your working practice, this guide is a great place to start. While tips such as “declutter your desk” and “meet smarter” may not be anything new, each entry is backed up with research, further reading and the aforementioned kickass gifs.
The guide goes a bit further than simple “just ignore your phone” advice. There is a detailed guide on how to activate an email-to-text feature on smartphones which allows users to close their inbox and ignore all but the most important of emails.
The guide also advocates good sleep, and the power of midday naps. Long misunderstood and misconceived as laziness, the benefits of napping are now undeniable and can be as important as getting a good night’s sleep for some people. Knowing how to nap to avoid the grogginess associated with interrupting certain sleep cycles is important, and lifestyle website Lifehacker has an excellent guide to get you started.
All in all, this is a delightfully illustrated, comprehensive and very useful guide.
