3 Ways to Be More Productive At Home and at Work

Ways to Be More Productive

Staying productive can be a major issue for everyone, no matter your age, lifestyle, or background. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to keeping getting things done throughout the day, week, month, and year. We here at Westpointe CDJR have a few ways to be more productive this spring that we’d like to share with you!

  • Shorten Your Emails – Keeping up with an ever-growing inbox of emails can be a hassle and kill any sense of productivity you had. Sometimes responding to everyone can cause major delays, especially if you tend to be fairly long winded. To fix the problem, try to keep all email responses to five sentences or less. Try to make your signature stand out a little as well. Doing so will allow you to get through a massive number of emails and still have time left for other work or activities.
  • Keep ListsKeeping a list of everything you need to do is a classic way of ensuring you stay productive. Add things like visiting people, getting work done, chores, and appointments to ensure you never miss anything important!
  • Don’t Wait to Clean – One of the best ways to get rid of a sense of dread when doing a daily chore is to clean up immediately after completing it. Doing so allows you to start with a clean slate rather than yesterday’s mess.

What to Have in Your Car’s First Aid Kit

Your Car's First Aid Kit

Traveling can be one of the best ways to bond with friends and family but it always pays off to be prepared for anything. Having a fully stocked first aid kit will greatly reduce the chance of delays or problems on the road. We here at Westpointe CDJR know what you need to have in your car’s first aid kit to be prepared for anything that could happen away from home.

Hand Sanitizer

Often left out because of its liquid form, hand sanitizer is essential to any first aid kit. It’s great for cleaning up cups and scrapes as well acting as a quick hand cleaning solution before meals. It never hurts to keep a small bottle stowed in the corner of your kit!

Extra Medication

If you plan on traveling with anyone who’s on daily medication, ask them for spare bottle to keep in your first aid kit for the duration of the trip. Even if they forget it, there’s already some extra packed away in the car.


Gauze pads, adhesive bandages, and adhesive tape are must-have supplies in any first aid kit, let alone the one in your car. Check to ensure that all of your bandaging supplies are stocked up, especially if you plan on hiking, camping, or hitting the trails.
