Give yourself more than enough mental space:
-To reset yourself
-To regulate your stressful emotions
-To process information
-To get creative
Our brains do not function well in a pressure cooker of stress and constant work/productivity. We need all these things to stay balanced, for the sake of our own mental health and emotional wellbeing.
In "The Ultimate Time Management Toolkit," I discuss ways to create enough space for yourself to do all theses things each week in your schedule. Starting with today - what space can you give yourself simply to process things and reset yourself? Can you create space for mental downtime today?
You can do things like...
-Take more frequent scheduled breaks
-Go outside for short walks
-Sit somewhere near trees, flowers, plants or nature
-Change locations to change your perspectives on things
-Let your body rest for a half hour to recharge
-Get away from digital devices for a half hour, do something on paper instead
Build in that time into your day...your brain will thank you with clarity and focus later!
