How to boost your productivity…and your creativity.

How to boost your productivity…and your creativity.

You’ve got loads to do, right!

You’re busy, busy, busy!

Your productivity has to be top-notch, of course.

So what’s the best way to achieve this?

Once, you might have tried multitasking – but now you know that’s not the way to actually improve your productivity. It’s okay if you’re doing simple tasks. But anything else and your ability takes a hit, plus you waste time as your brain switches between tasks.

Hmmm, so what to do?

Stop!

Take a brain break!

Taking a break helps you to be more productive

When to take a break?

  • When you feel your attention wandering
  • When you have a problem to solve
  • When you have just solved a problem
  • When you have a decision to reach
  • Between chunks of work

Taking a break re-charges your batteries and allows you to re-focus.

But more than this…

Taking a break allows the unconscious mind to work for you

Go for a walk, meditate, listen to some music…

Have a cup of tea, a snack, a daydream…

Or just change gear and do something mundane – some filing or tidying up.

Just for 5 – 10 minutes.

Take your attention away from what you’re doing.

And focus on something less cognitively demanding.

Your brain will still be processing.

Often when you walk away from a problem, the answer comes to you within minutes.

So take a quick brain-break now…guilt-free!

It’s the secret to peak productivity.
