5 Tips to Help You Get Productive Love, Love, Love: A DIY Valentine’s Day

My Faves: Online Brain Breaks

February 4th, 2009 admin

Usually I am a proponent of productivity. In fact in the past I’ve dedicated many a post to getting your act together and getting some work done.

But what about those times (like the suggested 10 minute break to every 1 hr of studying) when your brain needs a break from intellectual stimuli? I’m talking about when you’ve studied for 27 hours straight, been dumped by your first real boyfriend/girlfriend, or accidentally threw your retainer in the dumpster and had to spend 45 minutes looking for it (and 45 minutes after that showering to get the garbage smell off you).

Well, then you need a break. And these are my personal favorites:

Slightly Addictive Games

Animals Being Cute/Amusing

Things to Read, Do, and Look At

Okay, now get back to work!

    Oh awesome! Fun stuff. Thank you! I have to try YourFont.

    @ Jessica: Yes you definitely should! Most font sites cost like $10, but I gave YourFont a shot the other day and it was free and super fast to do. 🙂

    I did it tonight and told my friends about it on facebook! Already they are telling their friends. It’s spreading like wildfire. 🙂

    Thanks so much for your site!

    When i was young my mother told me the same things. Right now i am old man and i can confirm that giving your brain some small breaks(usually i give 15 min in 1 hour) gives you much more productivity in learning.
