Key Ideas

Sleep or nap

If you couldn’t be bothered with “recharging” activities, go and take a nap instead. You can’t go wrong with that.

If you don’t have a comfortable place to lie down – sit up straight, close your eyes and breathe gently instead.

Stand and walk around more

If you work at a desk like most people, have the habit of changing positions (preferably when moving to the next task).

Get a small desk suitable for laptop use on beds and place it on your work desk. Stand up and use your laptop that way.

Meditate

If you don’t have the patience to go through 15 minutes of guided meditation, try this:

Close your eyes, be mindful of your breathing and all the while keeping your mind as empty as possible and thinking of a two-syllabi-word. If you are tired, just keep your mind blank instead.

Drink water (or tea)

Keeping ourselves high hydrated is key to revitalizing our bodies and making sure we have ample energy when we need it.
If you find water too tasteless, opt for tea instead. Try it without sugar and drink it as is.

Exercise

Exercise has been identified as a keystone habit (a habit that changes other habits automatically).

If you are short on time and you can’t do the typical 30-45 minute gym or jogging session, try out Tabata instead. It’s a 4-minute long bodyweight routine.

Practice gratitude

Research is showing that being productive doesn’t bring happiness but that happiness brings productivity.
Practice smiling and soon enough you will be happier.
Try to think about just 3 things you are grateful for.

Find the to-do list app that work for you

The best one for you depends entirely on your working style and personal preferences.

You can use a physical notebook around everywhere you go, but it's easier to use a to-do list app or tool that syncs across all your devices. That way, you can access your to-do items whenever and wherever you need to, whether you're at your desk, in a meeting, or on a business trip.

Prepare in advance

Write out your to-do list the day before:

  • You'll free your time to dive right into your to-do list in the morning - one of the most productive times of day.
  • It can help you spot obstacles ahead of time and prepare accordingly.
  • Knowing what you have going on well in advance could help you relax and sleep better the night before.

Respecting your body's sleep cycle

No e-mails in the morning

If you immediately check your email or social media accounts when you wake up in the morning, you’re starting your day off in reactive mode instead of proactive. It means spending the best part of the day on other people's priorities.
