How are things going? Have you been spending lots of time in front of the computer, working? I know I have!
I wanted to share with you today a technique I learned a few years ago from a business coach named Racheal Cook It’s called the Pomodoro technique, and I find it really effective to stay productive and not burn out. It's also really quite simple to implement. The basic idea is that you work in 25 minute chunks and then take a 5 minute break to do something else. For example, if you love checking Facebook or your email, you could do that during your 5 minute break, and then after your 5 minute break you’d go back and do another 25 minute chunk of work.
I’ve been thinking about it in terms of bringing more movement into our lives. In those 5 minute breaks you could do a little movement practice. Think about it, if you worked 8 hours during the day you’d get in 80 minutes worth of movement over the course of the day – how awesome is that?!
Now, you might be thinking – what the heck can I do in 5 minutes? My answer is… a lot! If you’re not sure where to start you could
Ok – so there are some ideas to get you going. Keep moving friends and keep trying to move in different ways, mindfully and skillfully. Moving and having variety in your movements not only keeps it fun and interesting, but allows your body to become more resilient.
Have fun and let me know what you’re doing! You can take a picture or video of you during your 5 minute movement break and post it on our Facebook page!
