#ProductivityGoals: Tips To Boost Mindfulness & Lessen Chaos In Life
Do you feel that your Monday blues spill over to the entire week, until weekend comes to your rescue?
In my first job, I slogged (and partied) an entire week, and kept my off day for relaxation. Sounds fair enough. But, to my disappointment, I always ended up wasting my entire weekly off, dreading about the coming week and the huge pile of work waiting in for me. Even before the next week started, I fantasised about the coming weekend. It was nothing but mismanagement on my part. Now I’m more aware and manage my time better. Reason - I put back sleep on my priority list.
Odd sleep timings, often staying up the nights to meet the deadlines, eating junk food, binge drinking and what not. It was quite obvious, this took a toll on my health, which in turn brought down my productivity.
