“Recovering" from work

“Recovering" from work

Recovery is the process of reducing or eliminating physical and psychological strain/stress caused by work.

This is necessary for staying energetic, engaged, and healthy when facing job demands. Detach completely from work-related activites (including emails) and thoughts during non-work time.

Implementation intentions

Create a planned “if-then”response every time you’re either triggered or tempted to do something you don’t want to do.  

This can lead to better goal attainment, as well as help in habit and behavior modification.

Integrating keystone habits

Integrating keystone habits

By integrating one “keystone habit,” like exercise or eating healthy, the positivity of that habit ripples into all other areas of your life, improving it.

Because they are a system. When you change a part of any system, you simultaneously change the whole.

Protect your mornings

Protect your mornings

It means you are literally unreachable during certain hours. 

Don’t check your social media or email until after your 3 hours of deep work. And schedule all of your meetings for the afternoon, after lunch.

Your morning time should be spent on output, not input.

Meaningful productivity

Meaningful productivity

The best work happens in short intensive deep work spurts (1–3 hours, no distractions). 

Your best thinking  will actually happen while you’re away from your work, “recovering.” By taking your mind off work and actually recovering, you’ll get creative breakthroughs related to your work.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
