#BeatBurnout by Incorporating the Right Tools Into Your Summer Workday

If you’re finding it hard to stay productive during the summer months, you’re not alone. Many office workers find it difficult to concentrate with the sunlight streaming in through the office windows and friends constantly posting vacation snaps to social media. The good news is that being productive at a modern company often means you don’t always have to be behind your desk. Here are some of the best ways to use technology to stay productive, beat burnout and enjoy every minute of the summer.

Use Apps to Streamline Your Communication

First of all, cutting down on the amount of time you spend on repetitive tasks is the key to getting out of the office as early as possible. Some of the best ways to cut down on time-wasting include:

  • Record meetings so you can share them with employees who miss these meetings instead of re-doing the entire presentation at another time.
  • Off load note taking with automated transcriptions.
  • Use a meeting software that provides a unified calendar experience on mobile so you can quickly see your schedule for the day and join meetings with just one click.

Schedule Virtual Meetings Instead of In-Person Meetings

You may be used to seeing employees in person, but video conferencing can be just as effective, enabling face-to-face meetings anywhere. Virtual meetings make it easier for you to check in and collaborate from alternate locations. In other words, as long as you have a strong WiFi signal or connection, you can take meetings from a car, a five-star hotel in your favorite global city or the beach outside your vacation rental.

Take Time to Enjoy Yourself

In a new study according to LinkedIn, 70% of workers are unable to find work life balance. As a manager, your employees will follow your lead. So don’t burn yourself out working extra hours in the summer. Above all, if you want them to believe that physical and mental self-care is important, you have to lead by example by taking the occasional day off to restore your energy levels.

Are you on the verge of burnout? As Good Morning America suggests, make this summer your summer of self-care. Start the day with a morning run or get outside for lunch. Put your phone down and take a vacation, staycation or a quick day trip.
