How to be More Productive
Being productive in your everyday life really helps keep you on track to do all the things you need to get done. It makes life simple and easy. Using some of these systems and rules to follow for yourself will greatly help your productivity and motivation as well as increase your attitude and positivity towards the world itself. The daily stresses of life like work, school, parenting, paying bills, finding good insurance, and making sure you don’t fall apart while taking care of all that is tough to deal with sometimes. But worry no more! LA Insurance is here to help with some tips and strategies. It’s important to stay calm and use some of these tips and tricks to stay on track and get your tasks done.
Once people started working from home, it’s been easier to get distracted and not get your work done, or even your important daily tasks. As humans, we run best when we’re on a schedule. When we sleep, we have sleeping patterns, and what time we eat is also a pattern, so in order to be productive and find good motivation you need to implement a productivity pattern into your life as well. When working or trying to get a task done, there is a pattern you can easily follow called the Ultradian Rhythm. This study shows that humans can focus on a task for about 90 minutes at a time before needing a 20-to-30-minute break. Knowing this piece of information about our own biology is important because that’s how we should be planning tasks out. Figure out what you can do within the 90 minutes, get it done, and then reward yourself during the 20-minute break. Knowing that the task at hand will only take a certain amount of time increases motivation because you know it’s not going to last forever; especially if it’s a task that you don’t like.
There is also another process that is only two steps that helps with staying on track while doing a task. A scientist named Justin Gardner did research on a 2-step process on when humans are doing work. The first step of this 2-step process is to avoid multitasking. Avoiding multitasking ensures that you get the tasks done with focus and this will increase your productivity because focusing on one thing at a time ensures that it will get done. The second step in Gardner’s process is to stay away from distractions while working. Removing distractions like notifications, social media, and text messages will help you to be more efficient while working. Being able to focus and working more efficiently will increase your productivity really quickly once you get the hang of it.
If these suggestions don’t work for you there are other options that are a little easier as well. Just like the Ultradian Rhythm there is a technique called the Pomodoro technique. This technique is a time management strategy close to the ultradian rhythm but more split up. In order to implement the Pomodoro Technique into your life you set a timer for 25 minutes and take short 5-minute breaks in between. Then every 100 minutes take a longer 20-minute break. This technique uses the ultradian rhythm but breaks it up into smaller chunks. Working for 25 minutes straight is easier than working for 100 minutes straight. This strategy helps you to discover how long it takes to complete a task and to help yourself set more realistic goals.
These techniques and strategies are all very helpful and can be adjusted based on your own preferences. Make the work time longer or shorter based off of your timeline and have other tasks in mind when taking small breaks to prepare yourself for what’s next. Taking mini breaks from your tasks and work helps you feel more focused when you come back to work and finish the task. These strategies will be helpful in keeping you productive, focused, and efficient in your everyday life, not just at work. Don’t stress about the small things and let LA Insurance help! We offer low down payments and have coverage for anyone driving anything.
As Thanksgiving approaches, the scent of roast turkey and the allure of pumpkin pie fill the air.
But beyond the delectable dishes and family gatherings, this cherished holiday holds a profound message – one of gratitude.
At LA Insurance, we believe in the power of thankfulness and want to share why Thanksgiving is about more than just a feast. We’d also like to express what we, as a company, are grateful for.
The Importance of Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is a time-honored tradition that encourages us to pause and reflect on the many blessings in our lives. It’s a day to express our appreciation for the people we love, the opportunities we’ve been given, and the simple pleasures that often go unnoticed. But why is gratitude so important?
Positive Mental Health: Gratitude has been linked to improved mental health. When we focus on the positive aspects of our lives, we reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It’s a reminder that even in challenging times, there are things to be thankful for.
Strengthening Relationships: Expressing gratitude can strengthen our relationships. When we acknowledge and appreciate the people in our lives, it fosters deeper connections and understanding.
Increased Happiness: Gratitude has the power to make us happier. It shifts our perspective from what we lack to what we have, fostering contentment and joy.

In the great lakes of Michigan there are many things you can find in the water; some are good and some, scary. A few of the things that can be found in Michigan’s great lakes are boats, jet skis, floating tubes, plants, fish, but most of all, invasive species. Invasive species are species of organisms that cause harm in environments where they do not belong. Some of the invasive species that live in the Michigan Great Lakes have been taking a toll on the economy and the ecosystem. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are 25 species of invasive fish living in the great lakes, including zebra mussels. The EPA also states that there are 7 different species of invasive plants that are cutting off the food supply for wildlife in the area and promoting erosion.
With all these invasive species being able to infiltrate boats and other water vehicles, it’s important to know how to manage them and keep them in check. The types of fish and plants that are invasive species create a lot of damage for owners of boats, jet skis, and other Personal watercrafts. Damage includes jammed propellers, broken propellers, obstructed water lines, and pump failures (Corke, boatus.com). All these damages are really expensive to manage and keep up. To avoid these damages to a boat or other personal watercrafts, there are a few things that make it easier.
Cleaning the boat regularly is the first easy way to keep invasive species from damaging the boat. If there is mud or plants that have stuck to your boat, they must be removed and cleaned off the surface until it is smooth. Another solution is to make sure there is no remaining water inside the boat. If you would like more information you can visit the EPA website.
Inflation is taking an effect on the auto industry. Not only for the big companies, but also for the consumers. The price of auto repair in the United States right now is increasing week by week, month to month. This issue is stressing out a lot of car owners, and the few folks out there who have car leases. Since inflation is such a big issue right now, there are ways to prevent any auto damage to your car or lease. Preventative measures to save money on auto repair costs are important to car buyers, owners, and people who are leasing a car. Keeping costs down and using these preventative measures will help save you money and keep your car working longer.
There are a few simple things you can do to keep your car in good condition and make sure that any future possible auto damage won’t happen. Making sure that your tires are properly inflated is one of the preventative measures to keep your car in good shape. Making sure your tires are at the right tire pressure can improve your gas mileage up to 3% in some cases, depending on the model of the car (EPA). No matter how much you try to avoid auto repair costs you will always have to change your oil when the light comes on. It is recommended that you use the right grade of motor oil for your car when you need an oil change. Using the correct grade of motor oil for your car can increase your miles per gallon by up to 2% (EPA).
Auto repair costs are not completely avoidable so it’s good to know that there are some things you can do to put off paying the prices. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) suggests not ignoring regular maintenance of your vehicle. Making sure that you are checking your oil, tire pressure, and even checking your coolant regularly (FTC) will save you a lot of money on repair costs. Why spend a lot of money on a huge auto repair if you can prevent it by spending it on regular maintenance instead and saving lots of money?
With inflation rising to historic levels, the specter of economic uncertainty looms over auto repair costs – just like the rest of the economy! L.A.
