Five Essentials for Productivity

Last weekend, I was contacted by Kabbage-- an online company that provides small business loans.  Kabbage asked if I would be interested in writing a post on my top five essentials for productivity, along with some other bloggers.  I thought this would be such a great post for the blog, so here is a little run down of what helps keep me productive...
Kabbage- Five Essentials for Productivity

1. Journal: Having a journal is great for a variety of reasons.  For bloggers, like myself, it is great for jotting down inspiration for posts.  I keep one on me at all times (one in my backpack and one in my purse) so I can write down anything that comes to mind!

2. Coffee: Although I have tried to break my coffee habit, I just can't do it.  Now that I am older I need it to keep me going, plus I just love the taste.  Coffee is also a great way to take a little break while working, which is super essential to keeping me productive.

3. Food: Food, like coffee, is something I can't live without.  I am a snacker, so I constantly eat small bites throughout the day; however, this habit always helps me stay focused.  By eating, I can get a little break and also keep my energy up!

4. Email: Having some sort of communication, for me, is key to getting work done.  I work on a lot of collaborations and with editing for The Undeniable Report, it is great to have constant, fast contact with our writers and CEO.

5. Breaks: Last, but not least, breaks are an essential for my productivity.  I am not one of those people who can just sit down and study or do homework for long periods of time, so I usually take a short break to give myself some time to relax.  Breaks always leave me feeling refresh and ready to get more done!

What are your five essentials for productivity?



  1. I agree with all of your essentials for productivity except I'd have to substitute coke for the coffee - for some reason I have just never acquired a taste for it. The journals in your image are so cute!


  2. Great list of essentials! Breaks every 3-4 hours are a must.

  3. I think finding a space that you can work from comfortably helps keep me motivated as well! Great post.

  4. I definitely agree with the thought that breaks keep us more focused. You know my thoughts are always all over the place, so taking short breaks throughout my work is so important! Great list, Hunter!
