It sounds counter-intuitive but if we want to get more done it helps to pause every now and then to do nothing. Finding time to meditate at least once a day can work wonders for our productivity. Research-backed benefits include:

  • reduced stress – calms mind and body.
  • better decision making – can think more clearly, more aware of natural instincts.
  • renewed energy – taking time away from focussed work fuels stamina to do more.

There are countless resources available for guided meditation, my favourites include HeadspaceBuddhify and YouTube links.
