Taking regular breaks keeps you from getting bored and losing focus, increasing your brain’s function at the same time. It also forces you to reevaluate what you’re working on, ensuring that you’re going in the right direction.

2. Set a timer for 25 minutes

3. Work on the task until the timer rings then put a check mark in a tracker

4. Take a five minutes break

5. Repeat steps 1-4 three more times, followed by a 15 minutes break.

Set aside different tasks for different days of the week. And even if you can’t set aside full days to deal with certain issues, block off certain hours of the day to handle them.

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.

Having no routine or structure is so much more draining mentally, physically, and emotionally than any routine could ever be.

Your brain operates optimally when you consume a very specific amount of glucose (25 grams) in a form that is released slowly over time. Foods that fall into this category and have positive effects on you include fish, nuts, seeds, avocado, blueberries, raw carrots, and dark chocolate.

Breaking your day into chunks helps you be the best you as too much time spent doing one thing can cause you to lose focus and interest.
