Taking time off to rest, rejuvenate and replenish our reserves can be one of the most productive things to do.
While we take time off for ourselves this week, check out some of our most read productivity tips from the Social Media Minute:
Problem: We operate on autopilot most of the day!
Not a bad view from the cockpit. But, not very productive either.
Sitting or standing with your head up and shoulders back, in what is often called a “powerful pose,” can:
- Help prevent back pain
- Improve your physical well-being
- Make you better at your job (think social media blogging)
- Reduce stress
- Increase chances for success
Stand every 20 minutes. You’ll avoid any of the negative side effects of a sedentary job.
Waking well-rested starts with getting enough sleep.
Hitting the snooze button a couple times before getting up is a clear sign of sleep deprivation, says Nathaniel Watson, MD, president-elect of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. If you are getting enough sleep, you should be able to wake up on time without a morning alarm.
Ever get the feeling that your hampster gets more exercise than you do?
We hope your Thanksgiving will be enjoyable, productive and stress-free this season!
