Productivity Tools for your Time Management Revolution – What’s the big deal about self-care?

Here’s another productivity tool for your time management revolution.

Have you ever had one of those days where you just felt so completely discombobulated, and even though you knew you had a million things to do, you had no idea of what to do next?

In my previous posts, we’ve talked about how our brains decide whether or not we add another commitment to our calendar and what kind of time frame we promise others (and ourselves) we’ll complete these tasks.

Because time management is truly all about mind management, it’s very important that we practice the art of self-care. If we don’t take care of the casing that houses our most critical productivity tool – our brain – then we won’t be able to make key decisions about our time.

We need to make sure that we get an average of seven hours of sleep each evening. We need to keep our bodies hydrated with at least 64 ounces of water each day. (Sorry, beer and wine don’t count!) We also need to practice the technique of deep breathing whenever we get stressed, or whenever we have a decision to make. Research shows that those deep breaths will help clear our brains. We also need to make sure that we go for walks – because science tells us that walking will help with blood circulation, it will help with metabolism, and walking also helps with clearing out the brain.

By taking better care of our brains, we’ll be taking care of that secret weapon that helps us make better decisions about how we use our time.

Since everyone has different learning styles, below are two different delivery methods to help you learn these productivity tools.
