I do that by setting the timer-app on my telephone for 40 minutes (or typically simply 5-10 minutes if it is a job that I’ve procrastinated on).
Throughout these minutes I solely concentrate on the one job at hand and it turns into simpler to take action as a result of I do know that I solely need to do it for this restricted time interval.
When the timer beeps I go away my work for 5-Quarter-hour. Throughout these minutes I focus solely on resting by having a snack, taking a brief stroll or by stress-free with my eyes closed on the sofa.

For those who like, write these questions down on a word and put that word the place you can’t keep away from seeing it throughout your day.
