We would like to share with you some habits that should help manage your time, attention and energy!
Manage your time by yourself
The greatest satisfaction comes from the work we undertake by our own initiative and not the one that is imposed on us. But of course it is not always possible to do only what you want, sometimes you need to respond to the demands of the external environment (calls, e-mails, orders from the boss etc.). Therefore, it is important to find the ideal proportion for you between your plans and work that comes from outside. Do not rush to jump between tasks, but plan your workday schedule instead. This will help you to have more time for the day and not dissipate attention between several different things at the same time.
Forget the myths about the ideal worker
Many of us still believe that the ideal employee is the one who works day and night and is always ready to sacrifice his personal life to work. But those who truly care about the quality of their work, they know: no one can work for many hours without interruption, while constantly remaining highly productive. The human body is not designed for such activity, because by nature a person has a limited concentration of attention. Respect the needs of your body, because in order to work as productively as possible, you need to give yourself a rest. The things that may help are short breaks during the working day, a sufficient amount of sleep and exercise, as well as periodic rest from the computer, social networks and the Internet.
Do not be afraid to stop in the middle of the task and switch to another, more physically active activity
Have you heard about the Zeigarnik effect? Many writers, journalists and psychologists note an interesting effect: if you stop in the process of working without completing it, and go for a walk, lunch, exercises etc., then, returning to the text or project, many new ideas appear in your head that allow you to finish the job much faster and easier. Similarly, the Soviet psychologist Bluma Zeigarnik discovered that interrupted actions are stored in memory better than completed ones. Since then, this phenomenon has received the official and internationally recognized name: the Zeigarnik effect. The essence of the effect is that while we are doing something else, all the resources of our brain are aimed at bringing the interrupted task to the end. So, if you started an important project, do not be afraid to take a break in the midst of work: your brain will continue to think about the work that has begun, and you yourself will have more creative and non-standard solutions.
