Tuesday’s Tip – Regain Focus and Energy

Taking a break to do one of these activities can help shift your brain out of its current mode of thinking so that you feel reinvigorated. The idea is to engage a different sense, skill, or physical movement for 15 minutes to reset your brain.

Brain resetting activities

  • Listen to a podcast, audiobook, or new music
  • Write down 5 things you are grateful for
  • Write down you current roadblocks
  • Do a puzzle
  • Play a short video game
  • Doodle or draw
  • Meditate
  • Get moving by taking a walk or doing bodyweight exercises like squats or jumping jacks

Once you're done you are ready to set up your workspace again (seeMise en Place) and start a Pomodoro timer for 25 minutes.
