- Longer hours make it more important than ever to take brief breaks during the day. Just a few minutes away from technology, directing our attention to nature and clearing our mind will do wonders for our ability to focus and think deeply. These brain breaks help us reset and recharge – be intentional about taking five 5-minute breaks each day.
- WFH can blur the lines separating work time from personal time. Practice single tasking instead of trying to multitask all day long – our brain thinks more deeply and effectively this way.
- Unsurprisingly, stress and anxiety are on the rise. To counter feeling overwhelmed and fearful, we can turn our thoughts outward. Practice acts of compassion each day. Flip the script from fear to curiosity.
