I don’t always feel productive.
When I don’t I noticed a lot of key areas in my life that are not optimal.
Whenever I catch myself being unproductive I do check this short list of my status.
These words are often scribbled on a post it note or an index card.
Happiness Level Breathing How do you feel? Meditate? Is your space organized? Do you require a nap?
Here are the details.
What is my happiness level?
I check my breathing. I take deep breaths and correct my posture at the same time. A few deep breaths are enough to give me some more energy.
How do you feel?
What am I feeling at the moment? What do I need? Then I take care of that.
I close my eyes and take deep breaths. I sometimes use beads to time my progress and sometimes I use a guided meditation app like Headspace or Buddhify.
Is your space organized?
This is a key part. If a space is not orgainized then chances are, my thoughts are scattered. I do my best to clean up my physical and my digital space everyday.
Do you require a nap?
Sometimes I need a fifteen minute nap. I set my timer and take a short nap in my room when I can.
I am usually up and running after discovering that I’m good with a couple of these areas.
What about you?
Thank you for reading.
