In this age of distraction, it's no surprise that when you search "How to be Productive" online, you get a whopping 121,000,000 results. The tips go from generic to specific, but since a million results can get overwhelming, we decided to narrow it down to the more fun and unique ideas, care of Lucie Fink of Refinery 29's Try Living With Lucie. Here are some of her noteworthy tips:

  1. Track the hours you spend in a day.

Out of the number of hours you allot for school, whether it's studying, doing a paper, or finishing a project, how much of it involves actual work? Tracking down the hours you spend will help you utilize your time wisely, not to mention make you realize how much of it goes to waste.

  1. Workout.

Not gonna lie, working out is probably the most cliché tip for practically everything. Want to get fit? Work out. Want to lift your mood? Work out. Want to keep stress at bay? You know the drill. We can't blame these experts though because the thing is, working out really does help a lot in terms of making you happy. And when you're happy, you become more productive.

  1. Turn off notifications on social media...

...or keep your phone out of sight, whichever works for you. You'll be surprised how much time you'll save and how much inner peace you'll have just by cutting down social networking. A little sacrifice goes a long way, indeed.

  1. Utilize your time.

Stuck in traffic? A book (or an audio book) is your best bet. Waiting for your sundo? Use your lag time to brainstorm ideas for your org party. Your professor gave you a free cut? You can finally turn on your notifications and check your social media accounts.

  1. Make a five-minute rule

If you have tasks that can be accomplished in one minute or under, make sure to do it right away. Like, returning your accessories to its proper place after deciding on which one to wear or tidying up your desk after a rigorous study sesh.
