1. If it pops into your head, write it down!
Expecting your brain to remember something at breakfast that popped into your head at 10pm the previous night while watching something on Netflix isn’t happening.
Or if it is, it’s taking up brain power that you should be saving for more important tasks. Keep a running task list on your phone so you can keep track of all those sneaky little to-dos that you think of during that day. Your brain will thank you!
2. Your mental health comes first
I say this all the time, but you can’t pour from your cup if it’s empty. Take some “you” time when you can.
There were times when I had to work regardless or I couldn’t take any days off because I may needed the money. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get everything done or I couldn’t get out of bed due to a flareup or just being burned out to even go to work and I’m not going to lie… that was kind of a bummer.
BUT, I was able to structure my time where I’m putting my health and body first and on my days off in the mornings I leave my phone on “focus” mode for most of the day especially if I was out.
