Organizing your own time table and making sure you have fulfilled your own responsibilities can be difficult at the best of time. If you’re a dental administrative assistant, responsible for the timetables of several busy dental staff, the pressure is massively multiplied.
Trying to stay as productive as possible while stopping yourself from completely burning out can be a fine line to walk, so, to help out, here are some tips you can you to stay productive without harming yourself in the process.
Sometimes, the worst thing we can do is say “Yes, I can do that.” As an administrative assistant, there is always the pressure to take on all of the tasks you are asked to do.
However, always unreservedly saying yes to new work can spread you far too thin, putting you in danger of burning out and having a negative effect on your existing workload.
Don’t be afraid to turn down, or delay, non-vital tasks in order to address the ones you already have on your calendar in the most efficient and effective way.
Late nights and long hours go hand in hand with no sleep and a poor diet. Unfortunately, this a spiral than can be hard to get out of and can have a significant effect on your physical and mental health.
Treating your body well sets you up for being as productive as possible and it benefits no-one to push themselves to the brink of exhaustion. Remember, a fatigued body and mind cannot produce innovative concepts and creative problem-solving solutions.
After a busy day, it can be tempting to collapse into the nearest chair and spend your time flicking idly through the Netflix menu or tapping away at social media.
This can lead to you feeling like you don’t have any work/life balance at all, as your days are heavily regimented and your downtime blurs into the same pattern of wasted time.
While being idle is an important part of resting, try to make sure you also take the time to get regular exercise, socialize with your friends, and spend some time doing anything that gets you away from the couch.
