I strive not to be busy, but efficient.

Throughout history, games and sports have helped humanity to survive times of crisis by reducing anxieties and improving mental health.
While the pandemic has forced most gaming and sports activities to scale down, chess has demonstrated remarkable resilience, adaptability, and very strong convening power in times of a global crisis.
Toxic Productivity is an unhealthy need to always be productive, no matter what the cost. It is the desire to do something at all times and feeling guilty for all the things that one hasn’t done yet.
The pandemic made those still having a job a virtual work martyr, working extra hard just because having a job in these uncertain times was so precious in itself. Work becomes a reason to feel worthy, in control and fulfilled.
We all are juggling life's important areas: work, office, home, health and fitness, our finances and relationships.
It is not easy to juggle so many things all at once, and some areas may get neglected.
Eye strain is a common symptom of too much time on a screen. It can lead to headaches, tense shoulders and back, and potentially blurred vision.
A simple exercise to help with eye-strain: After every 20 minutes, look at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
Work boundaries help secure our time, energy, purpose and how fulfilled we feel.
Boundaries encourage us to have a work time and a time to recharge. So there should be a clear mind shift and a sense that we’re done for the day.
Good rituals can be done quickly, on-demand, and help you get into focus. Pairing a consistent routine with focused work can help to direct your mind into a state of productivity. But rituals can also prevent you from moving into focused work and instead become a tool for procrastination.
It feels like there’s never enough time to do all the things you have in mind.
You want to exercise, eat well and be healthy, You want to do great work, learn a language or guitar. But years slips by while it remains just an idea.
