Scenario:
After several hours of working nonstop at your computer, you’re feeling mentally and physically fatigued. Your attention is flagging, and you know you’re not being productive. You need more than just a coffee break to regain your focus.
Tip:
It’s time to take a break and move to a more restorative environment for a recharge. A restorative environment is one where you can mentally relax in your surroundings, such as a park, museum, nature trail, or beach. Take at least 30 minutes in such an environment to allow your mind to relax and reset for your next work session. Even if you just sit or walk outside, a physical break from your workstation and workroom can make a huge difference in your productivity. And no, using the break time to check email, catch up on social media, or read the news online doesn’t count as a restorative break!

Scenario:
The people you live and work with tell you it’s difficult to get your attention at times. They start a conversation and soon realize that you haven’t heard a word they’ve said.
Tip:
Ask them to use your name when they start a conversation to call your attention to the fact that you need to start listening. For example, “Bruce, can we please have a quick chat?”
You can then confirm you’re engaged before they start the conversation. This will help you focus on what they are about to say and make them feel heard.
