I really liked Jason Womack’s tips in this Lifehacker article, How to Kickstart a Low-Productivity Day.
I often use the "walk around" strategy when I’m stuck or tired. Since my home office is in an apartment building, I can take a trip downstairs to get the mail and maybe pop my head outside to breathe some fresh air.
I also love his emphasis on gratitude and connection with others – those are both very important to my productivity and well-being.
Writing Prompt: Take Jason’s suggestion to open up a favourite book to a random page and read for five minutes. Did that spark any ideas you can use in your current writing project? If you need some help making the connection between what you’ve read and what you’re writing, check out this post.
