Achieving more, doing less helps maximize productivity
Psychology Today reports that mental health and productivity are closely related. For instance, mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and burnout can have negative effects on productivity, and ADHD can cause distractions, which can drastically reduce an individual’s productivity.
