How to improve work from home productivity by 24-40%... by removing this ONE concentration killer

How to improve work from home productivity by 24-40%... by removing this ONE concentration killer


Due to recent changes many of us are being forced to work from home.

This means TONS of distractions such as…

  • People walking into the room during skype calls for work
  • Kids who are also stuck at home and need constant attention
  • Missing your normal routine which allows you to actually focus

But this is not even the worst drain on focus & productivity.

While getting rid of an unwanted invader from your workspace might distract you for 5 minutes...

Research from Australia shows that chronic stress results in 24-40% of the day being wasted due to reduced productivity! [1] 

This happens for TWO major reasons.

1- First is that when cortisol (the stress hormone) is elevated for long periods of time. It has literally been shown to shrink “grey matter” in the brain. 

Grey matter’s functions include self control, storing memories & decision making.

Which means you make more mistakes, take longer to remember answers & instructions, and find it harder to stay away from distractions such as social media.

2- The second reason is how it affects the amount of “deep sleep” you get each night. 

Studies show that even mild stress reduces time spent in deep sleep by 53% [2]... without reducing your total sleep time! (which means it goes unnoticed)

Without deep sleep… it’s physically impossible for your brain to rest & recover. 

And without recovery your mind slows down, and becomes less productive!

So you can see how stress makes it virtually impossible to be productive.

But let me rewind back to that study for a moment.

Remember how productivity was reduced by 24-40%?

Well this is the REALLY interesting part.

People who thought they had a stress problem... wasted 40% of their day due to stress.

But those who thought they did NOT have a stress problem… wasted 24% of their day due to stress!

That means even if you think your stress is totally under control… it may still be causing you to spend 24% more time working!

Which means less time having fun & spending time with loved ones!

and it makes it much harder for you to get promoted or ahead in your career!

So how can you reduce stress, and improve your sleep… so that your brain is able to focus?

Well while changing your diet, meditating, and working out every day… are things you could do.

Changing your whole lifestyle overnight… isn’t very realistic.

But there IS a solution that doesn’t require huge lifestyle change to be effective.

That’s why I want to tell you about...


A natural herb that virtually forces your brain to shut off stress hormones & relaxes you into deeper sleep… increasing your productivity!

I want to introduce you to Ashwagandha… this is a herb that has been used for centuries in Indian medicine. 

Studies show that this ancient plant medicine… has a powerful effect on both stress and sleep. 

In a 2012 study, this herb was proven to reduce symptoms of stress & sleeping problems by 69%! [3] 

And in a 10 week study on patients with sleeping disorders it was shown to [4]

  • Help people get to sleep 30.3% faster
  • Helped people stay asleep for 19% longer
  • Improve sleep quality by 7.8%

Now before you rush out and buy a cheap supplement online…

Be warned… not all Ashwagandha products are equal.

Many supplements contain very low doses  (300mg) and this can take a long time to show noticeable effects.

The other problem is that a lot of these supplements are not easily absorbed by the body (making them less effective).

To make sure you see the fastest results possible, your Ashwagandha supplement needs to have two things... 

  1. Potent doses of around 3,000mg
  2. It is combined with black pepper extract to help absorption and increase effectiveness!
