The One Thing You Should Be Doing If You Want To Be More Productive

Being productive requires you to be motivated. But after years of juggling work, children, social commitments, workouts, new diets, hair appointments, grocery shopping, laundry, needy family members, and the unexpected monkey wrenches called life, motivation is hard to find. So, in order to stay motivated, you have to take breaks and allow yourself time to recharge. Whether you take five minutes to sit in your car in silence before walking into the house after work, or you take a day off to go to the spa, you have to take a step back in order to move forward.

Taking time for yourself should happen weekly. Otherwise, you lose motivation and your productivity drops off. So, schedule a massage, get a manicure, take a long nap, or read a few chapters in your book: just do something that is 100% about you.

Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted and no solutions are searched for.  — Maya Angelou
