Let me repeat: Most of us sacrifice productivity-boosting activities for working more hours. (When I write about productivity-boosting activities I simply mean activities that are scientifically proven to improve our productivity. They increase our work output per hour. For example, instead of producing 10 units per hour these activities help us produce 12 units per hour.)
What if, instead of working more hours (while suffering from diminishing returns), we would use that time for productivity-boosting activities instead?
I’m personally not very good at spending time to recharge. This article outlines some great ideas:
- Sleeping More
- Taking Breaks
These seem like simple things to do, but it’s hard to integrate them into your schedule.
What things are you doing to recharge during the day? And how did you build that habit effectively?
