1 One step at a time While multitasking is a great skill to have, don’t overload yourself. It’s not most appropriate. Aim to efficiently perform one task at a time.
2 Get some air You might not be next to a park or patch of grass, but get outdoors and away from your screen.
3 Say om Many researches have shown that practising daily meditation can boost wellbeing and improve cognitive function. Sit still and focus on your breathing for 20 minutes on a daily basis. You’ll start to notice a difference. Just make sure it’s on your lunch break.
4 Away with the fairies Letting your mind wander might sound counter-intuitive, but finding a happy medium between the present moment and daydreaming is the ultimate goal.
5 Embrace your emotions Don’t try to resist or control your feelings. If you’re feeling sad, happy, tired or anxious, embrace these emotions and let them combine with each other.
