Why a Traditional Work Schedule May Not Mesh With Your Energy
Your boss insists that you show up at 9:00 a.m. and are at the office until 5:00 p.m. Or, maybe you work for yourself, but insist on the same (or even more hours). But this archaic schedule may explain your waning energy and productivity levels – sitting at work for 40 hours a week doesn’t work for everyone.
Restructuring Your Day
(Nearly) all would agree that productivity – and your output – is far more important that the number of hours you put in in a day. And so maybe you should think about restructuring; to be sure, a recent study shows that those who take longer breaks during the day are more productive than those who work the longest hours.
Your Brain Needs a Break
There is more behind wanting a break than simply wanting to get away from work; your brain needs a break. In fact, think about exercising your brain the same way you would exercise your body using high intensity interval training – your brain works best in short bursts of work followed by periods of low energy. Giving your brain the break its needs will not only aid in productivity but also help you to handle stress, distractions and frustrations, too.

- Yep paradise was epic. I swam, scuba dove a wreck, shared a new meditation, chatted with Richard Branson about the soul, sang … badly, hung out with giant tortoises every morning, got chased by a fierce lizard, played tennis several times, took kite surfing lessons, shook loose cobwebs, finished a book, shared loads of amazing connections, swam some more, got lost in the highest areas of the island in torrential rain, hung out at Rincon surfside, shared my sexy abs that rock routine, danced and rested on the last few days. Beyond grateful for all that is and all that was! Love to all😘😎 What have you been up to?
- From the mud brilliance can rise. The mud is where many remain stuck. The mud is where many wallow until they have to crawl just far enough out until they repeat. BUT the mud is where the real entrepreneurs go and create from. They make the mud their playground and the treasures rise up like the lotus. RISE up with me.
