Take enough breaks
You probably notice it daily, you are always busy and sometimes forget to think of yourself and take your necessary rest. Rest is not easily associated with productivity but these have a very important connection with each other. Walk that extra lap during your lunch break or focus on your breathing for five minutes. These are small moments where you can come to your senses and not be occupied with your work or assignment. After this moment of rest, our brains are ready to start working again with fresh eyes, so it's a win-win situation! You will be much more productive this way!
Sleep as a priorityBesides taking those important moments of rest during your day, sleep is even more important. If you do not sleep well, your brain has not had enough rest to recharge sufficiently, which means it does not function 100%. Make sure you get 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night for the right amount of rest. If you have trouble sleeping or falling asleep, you can apply a soothing essential oil to your wrists and neck. Your senses will transmit the scent as a signal to your brain that will calm you down and help you fall asleep faster. You will then wake up completely rested and able to start your day fit and recharged!
Feed your brain
What you eat is what you are they often say! Nutrition is very important so that you have enough fuel during the day, but what you eat is also very important for the function of our brain. Make sure you have a good balance in your diet and that you take in enough important minerals and vitamins. This will make our brains happy and so will your productivity! Brain food is another word for it and no this is not just green spinach, but delicious dark chocolate is also something that makes our brains happy!
Skin care is key
Taking good care of yourself also means taking good care of your skin. Our skin is the largest organ and is exposed to harmful free radicals every day. Use a nourishing body lotion and apply a nice serum on your face for radiant skin. Nourished is the place to be for the very best natural clean & green skincare products! We stock everything from skincare to make-up and natural deodorant! In addition we also have developed our own sustainable zero-waste soap bars and these are fantastic and as an added bonus, they leave your bathroom smelling delicious too! Taking good care of your skin will make you feel more comfortable in your skin which will make you more productive.
Creating overviewDo you want to get a lot of work done and achieve your goals, but you don't know where to start and this is stressing you out? This is often the case because there is no overview of your tasks, which is why it is so important to write it down. The Bambook Do-Book is perfect for jotting down your daily or weekly to-do list here. Once you have completed a task, you can very easily remove it from your list with the removable pen. We always love doing this, clearing your to-do list so you can feel satisfied at the end of the day or week! An extra tip from us is to alternate your day so you keep stimulating your brain in a different way so you don't get blinded by one task.
