Let’s get one thing clear: Your productivity levels don’t define you. But why resist tools that make life a little easier? In that vein, we’ve rounded up some of the Amazon products for productivity that we swear by. (After all, it’s Amazon Prime Day and you’re probs already adding items to your cart.)
Increasing your productivity levels at work and at home often starts with little shifts in your mindset and in your time management. Tools like the right paper planners or social media-blocking apps can also help keep you focused.
Here are a few of our favorites:
For when you need the right paper planner
This undated version of the popular Panda Planner asks you to regularly pause and reflect on your accomplishments and areas for improvement. Think of it as your go-to tool for slowing down and asking yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing.
For when you want a stylish option to stay hydrated
Believe it or not, dehydration might just be the culprit behind your crummy mood. One key way to stay hydrated? Carry a stylish bottle with you and keep it on your desk where you can see it. Visual cues = friendly reminders.
For when you want to spruce up your water
If drinking tons of water throughout the day sounds dull, consider an infused water bottle. Add fresh fruit to the removable center portion and add some flavor to your daytime drink.
For when you need to charge and view your phone easily
Plugging your phone in to charge multiple times a day can ultimately damage the charging port. Wireless chargers like this one allow you to simply lay your phone down and charge it without having to plug your phone in.
For when you like to have multiple reading options
There are a ton of great summer book releases this year, but carrying around multiple books can be a drag, especially when you’re traveling or commuting. The Kindle paperweight is one of Amazon’s key products—and this is the best and most affordable edition yet.
For when you want to wake up slowly and comfortably
There’s nothing quite like waking up to a sunrise. Our internal clocks are hardwired to sense when daylight beams down on us. If your bedroom doesn’t get the best natural lighting or if you’re waking up super early, you can count on this clock to mimic sunrise for an easier wake-up routine.
For when you want Alexa’s help, plus video options
If you’ve been toying with the idea of leaning on Alexa to make you more productive, consider the Echo Show. It’s essentially all the things you expect from Alexa, plus a video and visual component. If you have two Echo Shows, you can sync them as a baby monitor or intercom system in your home.
For when you need a portable phone charger
When you’re traveling or simply out and about running errands, the last thing you need is for your phone to die. Snag a sleek portable charger like this one to avoid freaking out about the lack of outlets during your next shopping trip.
For when you want to easily monitor your health
Self-awareness is a key part of staying in shape and maintaining a healthy diet. Count on the Fitbit to help you track your steps and heart rate throughout the day.
For when you want your laptop to be travel-friendly
If your job requires you to have a laptop at all (or most) times, the right computer sleeve is key for protecting your screen and hardware. This one allows you to neatly tuck in your mouse and charger without it turning into a tangled mess.
