Top 5 Tips to Battle The Mid-Week Fade
Weekly High Five
Trim The Excess
Let’s be honest; not everything we do is worth doing. So, take it off your plate and don’t look back!
Set A Timer
Sometimes all we need is a micro-action to get revved up. Set a 30-minute timer and challenge yourself to see how much you can get done. You might even hit your flow and forget all about the timer!
Take A Break
Did you know the average human brain is most effective when given a short break every 50 minutes? Get up and stretch, take a walk, get some food, and let your brain relax.
End Your Day Early
The average person is only truly productive for approximately three hours a day. If you feel like your brain has checked out on you: let it!
Take A Day Off
Burnout is real, my friends! Don’t be afraid to step away and find a little joy; your business will not burn down in a day! Don’t be afraid to take a day off!
Like I always say, “It’s your life. You should get to choose how you spend it”. If you are having trouble focusing, it could be because you need a break: take it. Maybe you need a shot of creativity to kick start your flow state: get creative! Do whatever it is that works for you.
There is no one-size fits all solution to running a business or being productive. You have to find your Unique Efficiency Style and listen to what your body and your mind are trying to tell you. Being productive for the sake of productivity will only be a waste of time. Step away, get refreshed, and come back ready to work.
