Meditating. Journalling. Mind mapping. Brainstorming. Short work weeks. Mindfulness.
There are lots of ways to try and improve your productivity. To gather your thoughts and work more effectively.
We all have that little voice nagging away at us that we could be doing more.
“See that Tim Ferris? He’s already done more than you by the time he has his morning non-standard, quirky cup of tea than you do all day. Get on it, loser.”
I tell you what I find helps. Always has. A good sleep.
Once you’ve created something, sleep on it. If you have troubles, take a nap. Head full of ideas? Kip away.
When you wake up, your mind will be clear.
Trouble sleeping? Get tired. Go for a run, or a walk.
You’re designed to get tired, and rest and recover.
Try that first.
