Work in chunks

Our brain focuses best in short spurts, so dedicating 25 minutes to one activity, taking a five-minute break, and then resuming that activity or switching to another activity for another 25 minutes will help.

This is also known as the Pomodoro Technique.

Think About It

Acting without first reflecting can make things worse. Regularly reviewing how you spend your time will give you insight into how you got to your present state, how to move forward strategically, and how you work best in general.

Make time for quiet reflection or journaling. Think about or write what stresses you, why something isn’t working, or when during the day you’re most productive.
