It is a wonder what I can do when I get enough sleep!
While I was at work today, I created 17 new planner pages for my 5.5 x 8.5 planner-binder. I had been very frustrated because most planner pages in existence are for letter-sized paper, or, for whatever reason require settings that my work printer just cannot handle. So, I’ve been trying to make my own, but I just haven’t been able to focus because of my lack of sleep.
When I got home, I started dinner in the crockpot, nursed my daughter to sleep, started a load of laundry, started downloading/installing a bunch of files to my computer, watered my garden, ate lunch, and am now writing this blog post – all in the span of a hour, and at least 25 minutes of that was devoted to Baby Girl exclusively.
And that’s another thing – I would have thought that needing to eat would slow my productivity, but it hadn’t at all. All I had for breakfast this morning was a 150 calorie Yoplait yogurt. And I had a cup of coffee at work. That was it. So being hungry certainly isn’t distracting me – it has all been my lack of sleep or bad sleep.
That leads me to my question to you: what is holding back your productivity? Is it a lack of sleep? Stress? Bad eating habits? Knowing what the problem is, is half the battle!
