I’m at my happiest when I’ve been productive, or when I’ve ticked things off my to do list. Knowing I’ve had a productive day helps me relax and enjoy proper downtime like watching a film or getting a good nights rest.
But sometimes (most days) there’s not enough hours in the day and those things on my list get carried forward, and I end up playing catch up, and feeling pretty mardy about it too.
Today I’m looking at small satisfying tasks that can add a little productivity to your day when nothing seems to be going to plan. They take 5 minutes or less, and afterwards you can reward yourself with a brew. Disco!
