How can I be more productive without compromising my health and keeping away from anxiety and overwhelm?
Productivity really means getting the right things done.
You can do almost anything, but there is no possible way you can do everything.
There are things you can do to leverage your time and build efficiencies, but trying to cram everything in is not being productive. It is actually destructive and can tear down your health, create anxiety, frustration, and hatred.
Sometimes we need to show ourselves grace and listen to our bodies. That isn’t wasteful because you will be more productive since you took care of yourself.
Recognize how you are wired, so you can learn what works best for you.
It is alright to adjust and refine to create the systems that will work best for you.
Often resting and relaxing energize us to be more productive during the rest of our day.
We all have a body clock and it runs in different cycles for different people. Recognizing those peaks and valleys to your energy, being aware of them, and giving yourself permission to adjust your day when you can adjust things to fit in the flow of your energy. If you are a morning person put the most difficult tasks you need to get done in the morning. If you are an evening person don’t force yourself to do those tasks first thing in the morning.
It comes down to being aware and listening to what your body wants. Cut other things out that are not important. Everything you say yes to means you are saying no to something else.
“Your life is the result of choices you make. If you don’t like your life it is time to make better choices.”
Many people feel like they have to say yes to everything because they are going to miss an opportunity, something is going to go wrong, or someone will be mad. Usually, that is not true, so test it. Learn to say no in different and creative ways.
Productivity is in relation to your priorities and if your priorities are right you are going to be productive.
